Things That Just Plain Suck! It’s Okay — Yesterday was Thursday


Saran Wrap that goes everywhere and nowhere, besides the dish you want to cover.

Socks that refuse to stay up and both up somewhere in middle earth inside your shoe.

Waiting at home for anyone that needs to fix, deliver, or install something in your home.

Public pens that don’t work- or leak!

Wet floors in a public swimming establishment that you know bacteria is breeding in triple time.

Dentists that insist on conversing while they are drilling a hole inside your mouth.

Strangers in a crowded elevator assuming you were the creator of that smelly gas.

Public bathroom doors that will not lock and no matter how hard you hold on to the door- there is always someone stronger on the other side.

People who spend way too much time at the ATM’s in front of you. Is their last name Trump?

Those who get on the bus without the proper fare. What were they doing for the last 20 minutes while waiting for the bus?
Cold sores that look like a bad case of herpes.

Express Lanes for 12 items and those that mistake the number 12 for 16.

Advertising cards that fall out of magazines and newspapers. Have you thought of inserting cold hard cash to get your product information across?

Folding fitted sheets. I watched Martha Stewart on Oprah and still didn’t get it. Of course Martha Stewart probably doesn’t get me!

Waiters and waitresses who insist on giving me their names before I order. No, you are not in the will or my best friend!

Dogs who smell your crotch. Believe me, there is not gold in dem dar hills or a Milk Bone.

Not knowing the words to a song- heck not knowing the words for much else either.

Walking the dog and he won’t do a thing, but you need too desperately.

The strapless bra that won’t stay up and ends up as an inner belt.

When you just can’t find what smells in the fridge and everything just smells like it’s been touched by Teen Spirit.
