Things That Don't Make Sense...

This list, of course, is NOT exhaustive... I will feel the need to add to it from time to time, and you are all (all? that's funny... how many readers do I have? Five?) welcome to do the same... by all means ~ add to the TTDMS list!

1. People who drive big vehicles (i.e. SUVs and TRUCKs)forgetting to remember that, when they are pulled up to a stop sign, that the little cars can't see around them. When a person with a big head or a big butt is in a theater or at a parade, they are constantly aware that they might be a hindrance to the field of vision of the people around them. Why does this rule not apply on the road???

2. Women who get upset when the toilet seat is left up. I mean, really... can't you just put it down before you sit on it? Is it all that necessary to be able to sit on a toilet without first looking at it? Are you approaching the bathroom with your eyes closed? You ARE facing the toilet when you walk in, right? You don't walk in backwards? (Once, while visiting a bachelor friend, he said, "I always tell the women who visit to be sure and put the toilet seat back up please!!!" ~ he was a character.)

3. Why do you hear people say they need a bigger bathroom? What do they plan on doing in there... dancing? Seriously, how much room do you need to shower and use the potty? Even a bathroom with an oversized, fun tub... you just need room to walk from it to the bedroom, right?

4. Reminds me of a joke:

Why men will never understand women:

A husband in his back yard is trying to fly a kite. He throws the kite up
in the air, the wind catches it for a few seconds, then it comes crashing
back down to earth. He tries this a few more times with no success.

All the while, his wife is watching from the kitchen window, muttering to
herself how men need to be told how to do everything.
She opens the window and yells to her husband. "You need more tail".

The man turns with a confused look on his face and says, "Make up your mind.
Last night, you told me to go fly a kite."

Today... while the blossoms still cling to the vine...
