Ruminations

I stayed home sick today. I feel very unproductive. But, I did find this website with random thoughts from people. Here are some that I have thought also.

The idiocy of humanity is well documented in YouTube comments

I find it incredibly unnerving when a customer refers to me by my first name and catches me off guard. Yes, I have a name tag on but please do not use it to make me into your instant friend.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you
realize you're wrong.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't
work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically
fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all
know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards
or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
suddenly realize I had no idea what was going on when I first
saw it.

I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron
test is absolutely petrifying.

Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart",
all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod
and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I
know how to get out of my neighborhood.

I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the
shower first and THEN turn on the water.

Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty,
and you can wear them forever.

Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their
profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got
the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if
I do!

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't
want to have to restart my collection.

There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are
going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

"Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle,
then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still
not know what time it is.

It is physically impossible to get back from class and not take a nap. It doesn't matter what time of day it is. The second you get through the door, it's like you've been awake for a week.

Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.

One of the most boring and lonely jobs must be working in a campus book store after the first week of the semester. (It is.)

If my milk expires on the 15th, it's definitely fine at 11:59PM on the 14th, but at 12AM it turns rotten and I know it. I know it because the expiration date says so. Thank you, America.

Sometimes I can't handle the pressure of having to be the person to think about what we're going to eat every day.

I wonder how many cars and cash prizes I won from a soda bottle cap but was too lazy to enter the code online.

Box set DVD's are where entire weeks go to die.

Please don't turn off the TV while I'm asleep. I was watching that.

I wish my textbooks had a "Search" function.

For some reason I've always had a strange feeling that even numbers are "good" and odd numbers are "bad".

It is impossible to run with a backpack on and not look like a fool.

SO I was on a job the other day in Virgina, yes the state and this older guy that was there also, reached into his pocket with his right hand to find the screw driver he was holding in his left hand, He laughed at himself and commented that he loves a good joke on him self, It made me think about how "they" get the seeds out of seedless watermelon, or why they don't call pole vaulting the "super high jump", Is wewe a name or something we do? Does "get me a sandwich" have the same impact as "I could use a glass of water out there", I'm glad the tears we shed are from laughing to hard and not wondering if we are loved and cherished. KEEP IT UP THERE WILL BE TEARS LATER.
