“There is no hitch“ –
In times of endless self-optimisation and -idealisation, a hitch is perceived as more of a flaw and will rather be rejected than accepted. Although a hitch, in contrast to being perfectly flawless, can be taken as a much more constructive source of friction. In the sense of „to stick to something“, a flaw or hitch has the chance not only to get attention, more to generate tension.
This thought is implemented in the doubling by putting its content into a contrary situation. The fact that there is no actual hook on the wall – to put a coat on – is the flaw of this situation.
