Why is it that the people who insist on walking on the wrong side of the hallway – and who you invariably almost run over while rounding a corner – are the ones carrying a bowl of soup or a hot cup of coffee? Wouldn’t that be a good reason to walk on the right side and to make sure you didn’t run into someone?
Why do the people who only visit a restaurant during Restaurant Week or when there’s a Groupon complain when they can’t also get their free birthday dessert or half-price appetizer?
Someone recently posted an article on Facebook about a new app of some kind that allows you to apply “creative effects” to your iPhone photos in “seconds” instead of the “many minutes” that it takes for some other app to do the same thing. So now we can see even more lousy iPhone photos. You’ll be spending less of your time processing them, so I guess that means you can post more. But I still get to ignore them.
Why do the people who creep through the neighborhood at 24.9MPH (speed limit is 25) feel that it is OK to not bother stopping for stop signs?
I went to a meeting the other night where they had a ‘Swap Table’ for people to sell their used camera gear. I took in a Ziplock bag with a bunch of stuff I was going to throw away, dumped it out on the table and put a big FREE sign on it. I didn’t keep track of specific items, but the bag was just as full when I packed it up as it was when I brought it in. I guess nobody else wanted my junky stuff either. Maybe they put stuff in? It’s in the trash now. I should have just put it there to start with.
Besides the fact that it looks ridiculous, do the people who parade around in their cars with their Poochies on their laps ever think about what would happen to “Poochie” if they got in an accident and their airbag went off? Do they realize that they’d have a Poochie Pancake?
