Why, oh WHY does every forward directed toward females with safety warnings always—ALWAYS—have to come in size 40 font, bolded, and in color? Does the originator somehow believe that people will be more likely to read and take note of it if it is annoyingly large?
Why, oh WHY can’t people learn to use apostrophes correctly? Have we failed that much in our high school grammar courses? Or is it somehow the result of short-form text messaging? The latest egregious example I stumbled upon recently: At the American Legion, the wall says something like “We honor our veterans” except it said “We honor our veteran’s”. AHHH!!! I saw a sign awhile back: “Bracelet’s for sale.” No, please, no! Really, we must get to the bottom of this.
Why, oh WHY do people persist in sending email forwards that contain beautiful and inspirational messages, followed by dire warnings to pass it along to one hundred people or your dog will catch bubonic plague and die a long, horrifying death? Come on, people. Look, unless you’re twelve, it’s just silly.
The above is surpassed only by the forwards that include this message: Forward to seven friends including the person who sent it to you! Who comes up with this stuff? Are you really that desperate for love that you need someone to relay back the message about puppies and angels?
Why, oh WHY do some cashiers feel it necessary to give back your change by placing the bills in your hand first, followed closely by the change, which is dropped ON TOP OF said bills, which then proceed to slide off of the bills onto the ground? The chances of this happening increase four-fold if you’re in a drive-through.
Okay, I’m through for now. And I feel relieved.
Feel free to add more to the list. It’s for your mental health.
