There are certain things in this society that just don’t make any sense to me, so I’ve decided to keep a list. I started that list in a previous posting, below is a continuation. Happy reading!
- Why do hole punchers cost so much? – I don’t know if I’m paying to organize my papers in a binder or if it’s just another way of purchasing confetti. And why are hole punchers so heavy? It shouldn’t take a 5 pound object to cut through a sheet of paper, which only weighs about 2 grams. Oh well, at least they make great paperweights.
- Why are garbage bags so expensive? – I’ve asked my friends this question many times & no one seems to have a good answer. In essence, I’m purchasing garbage since all I’m going to do is throw the bag away with everything else inside. It’s such a shame that the bag itself is worth more than its contents. =(
- All doors should be pushed only, not pulled – I hate touching nasty doorknobs or dirty handles and am of the belief that they shouldn’t even exist. Why can’t all public doors be swinging doors – you know, built like the doors in a restaurant kitchen? I’ll bet this would cut down on so much disease.
- I can’t wear a red shirt with tan pants anymore lest someone think I work @ Target – I remember the times when uniforms were restricted to warehouse workers or gas station attendees. But now, it seems anyone who works a register has to wear one. The thing that gets me is that apparently workers at Target can not only wear a red shirt but anything that has red in it. So it gets more & more confusing as to whom the real red–shirt wearers are versus their perpetrators. At least Best Buy employees all wear Best Buy polo shirts, so there is no question that they are at work. The workers at Target conveniently forget to wear their badges so unless I see someone with a price gun in their hand, I can’t assume that they work there. Do you know how many people I’ve insulted that just happened to be wearing red shirts? Geez! It’s almost like me walking into a courtroom wearing a robe, and getting offended if people think I’m the judge. If you happen to be shopping at one of these places then don’t wear red! And don’t get me started on Kmart; they seem to think they are Wal-Mart workers because they all wear the same colors – blue & tan. And here I was thinking that Kmart’s employees would wear red because it’s the store with the big red “K”. How silly of me to think that!
- Why do batteries always come in packs? I only need 2 (4 at the most) – Anybody with a remote control can feel my pain! I’m sure by now somebody has complained to Duracell about it, yet they keep making these multipacks. I really should start a petition and even write my Congressman. It’s just so unfair! And what do we do with the extra batteries in the pack? Put them in the junk drawer & forget about them, right?! I know I’m not alone on that one! Of course, when we need batteries again don’t we always forget about that half-used pack stuck in the bottom of the drawer and end up buying a brand new pack? I know I do! Aauugghh! There’s got to be another use for these leftover batteries. Maybe I’ll start selling them individually on EBay or give them away as Christmas gifts.
