Things I Don't Understand

I've been doing a lot of driving lately and these are the things I think about in the car. I used to blast music but I'm sick of all my music so now I just drive and think. About this kind of stuff.

*Mullets.... just... why?

*The media's fascination with Britney Spears. She was a pop singer. She's not now. Let it die. Please.

*Poor hygiene. Soap is cheap.

*bungee jumping and sky diving

*western style clothing (unless you live in Montana, of course, or are going to a costume party)

* things made with yarn and plastic canvas

* child abuse. how? really, how?

*chubby teenage girls with half shirts and their guts hanging out over their jeans

*why people get dogs and keep them chained outside

*why the Brits put up with financing the monarchy. hello???

*why teenagers would rather get soaked than carry an umbrella

*why dogs have to sniff for a half hour before they find the right spot. (ok, I know there is some cockamamy reason for this but I don't care, it's still frustrating as hell)

*people passing you driving 90 miles an hour and then turning right 2 blocks from where they did it.

*people who get in an empty church pew and sit on the very end.... and then get all bent out of shape when you ask them to move over (this is my #1 pet peeve)

*people who don't think you're quite good enough for them to acknowledge you in the supermarket even though they know who you are. (don't even get me started on this one)

* why we can't celebrate Christmas anymore

*why we can't celebrate Halloween anymore

*why the Brits get so many "bank holidays" and we don't

*why health insurance sucks and gets suckier every year

*why everything that tastes wonderful is bad for you

*why some people can eat anything they want and not gain an ounce

*why p eople who need health insurance can't get it and the people who don't can (yes, I know everyone needs it, but I also know that people who really need it... like asthmatic 20 year olds, CANNOT get it.. So, yeah, let's just put them on the welfare rolls )

*terrorism. I don't understand hate of that magnitude. At all.

*all the hubbub about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Who cares. She eats men up and spits them out and he'll get expectorated too before too long.

*what happened in New Orleans last summer. I don't understand why those people were not helped for such a long time. It could not have been that difficult.

What don't you understand?

I'm with you! Especially on the chubby chicks who wear skimpy clothing. Another thing...older women who try to dress like they're 16 or 20-something...I in the store, there was a woman with VERY low-rise jeans, a tight T-shirt...and more wrinkles than a SharPei.
