This post on things I don’t get was inspired by a universal experience. I say universal because I’m willing to bet this has happened to you, too:
You’re out shopping when you have to go to the bathroom.
You find the nearest public restroom and step inside. There are at least 10 open stalls. It’s quiet. No one else is in the restroom.
You pick the cleanest stall and sit down to do your business.
Two seconds later another woman enters the public restroom and PICKS THE STALL NEXT TO YOU.
Right?! Why oh why couldn’t she leave a buffer zone? Or pick a stall across the aisle? Any one but the one right next to you?
There are lots of other things I don’t get. Things like:
-When you go to the movies and it’s mostly empty. So then the only other people who come in pick seats right in front of you.
-People who say they “forgot” to eat.-Why anyone gets fruit in their Dairy Queen Blizzard.
-Why it takes three remotes to watch anything on Netflix on my TV.
-Why the grocery store rearranges the shelves every few months when everything was perfectly arranged before. It’s like they want to mess with people’s heads.
-How come I feed the fish and the cat when my children SWORE they would if I just let them get a fish and a cat.
–The Beefalo. Half cow, half bison. Fully freaking me out.
There you have it, things I don’t get.
What about you? Is there anything that makes you scratch your head in bewilderment?
