More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

 

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

 

The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

 

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 the world 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.

 

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

 

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.

 

How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

 

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

 

The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

 

Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say"

 

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?

  

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

 

I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

 

Bad decisions make good stories.

 

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!

 

Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....

 

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

 

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.

 

I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't watching this.It's only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'

 

I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

 

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.

 

As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

 

I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

 

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

 

I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

Seriously though, I feel like I've gone through every single one of these this past month. It's nice to see someone else make that observation haha..
I hope you feel better tomorrow so work isn't too bad..

You only missed blowing off the insides of the system and cartridges in the hopes of making it work. What an odd coincidence that so many people did..

thanks Phoebe. I needed a laugh. Like Pb4, no video games, when I was a kid, we use to blow the dust off the vacuum tubes in the radio every now and then though. I know, whats a vacuum tube ? Right,,,,,but I do have a light in my freezer..
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

haha! Yes, I was from the nintendo generation, and have owned every kind of nintendo since (super nintendo, 64, game cube, DS, and i pre-ordered my Wii!)
 
by the way, for any or all crohnnies who don't have a DS, they're a perfect toilet / hospital / waiting room companion. turn
 
I'm glad you all enjoyed the post as much as i did!

Wow.  I could relate to almost all of those.  And as for folding the fitted sheet - I would really love to know if that's even remotely possible.  It's such a pain right now.  Thanks for the smile to start my day.

ahh, i almost dropped my laptop after reading a few of those! good stuff... and i actually borrowed my brother's DS for my last hospital stay! did you know they make a little version of guitar hero for it? only they recommend taking lots of breaks so you don't get carpal tunnel! actually, my last hospital stay was last october and my brother still hasn't gotten the DS back :) anyways, thanks for the laughs.
