"Unfortunately, common sense is the least common of all the senses."
Stuff that's been bugging me lately...
--Why to toilet paper manufacturers insist upon gluing down that first piece of tp?!
--Why do they put up road signs that say "Be Prepared To Stop"?! I am always prepared to stop.
--Two words: cell phones. I'd rather deal with a drunk driver than someone driving under the cellular influence. Also, I do not need to hear your personal conversations when I'm out shopping or dining (or anywhere in public) - keep your polyp rehash and dating woes for later.
--While we're on the subject of road distemper, do your fellow crash test dummies a favor and assume The Three Necessities Position: Head out of ass; Hands on the wheel; Eyes forward!
--Why is it that, when leaving voice mail, people feel the need to rattle off their phone numbers at the speed of light. You want me to call back? Don't abuse me with your auctioneer on espresso logorrhea. No, it doesn't help that you repeated it three times - it was indiscernible each freakin' time.
--If you take the last cup of coffee, make more!!!
--Designated smoking areas are just that. Quit giving the people using them "the look." They already know it's bad for their health - your withering glare is not going to make them drop their cig and yell "Hallelujah, I'm cured! Pass me a mug o' wheatgrass juice." You don't like the smoke? Stay the hell outa the smokehouse.
--Why are commercials always broadcast at three times the volume of the regularly scheduled program?! Beating me with your sales pitch will make me walk in the opposite direction.
--Your "personal relationship with Jesus" is just that - personal. Kindly keep it to yourself.
--Stop assuming that someone is going to fall off of the planet if they end up spending a holiday alone. "No thank you" means NO! It does not mean, "Please try harder, I'm just being shy."
--The offense you give is the offense you take - unclench already!
--Life goes on, move with it. You wanna dwell, you dwell alone.
--Would it kill you to smile and say a kind word to menial laborers?
Ok, I'm done. Go forth... have a day.
