I’m sure many people stuff things into their drawers quickly just to get them out of the way, which is great until you come back to open it. For some reason things expand in drawers and when you come to open them they jam on the top, this is a pain in the arse to open. Various implements later, wooden spoons, knives etc draw slams, trapped hands and you might be lucky enough to finally get the thing open. I’m not sure what you do otherwise? I’ve never had to go that far - good luck stuck drawer person.
Who knew there was a proper way to dispense TicTacs? Maybe if you do this you won’t get one wedged in the bottom. I’ve seen people go mad trying to break the thing open to get at the stuck TicTac, it hardly seems worth the effort.
There are a lot of people not on Twitter or Facebook, some of them are like my dad, they’d have no idea what to do if they were on either service. Some however love to tell you how they don’t use social media, how they aren’t a mindless sheep, how they don’t have a need to tell everyone what they had for breakfast, with a picture, and how they have enough real life friends without getting an ego boost from 1000s of friends on facebook. They like to tell you how pointless and shallow social media is, how facebook friend lists are often full of people you don’t even know in real life, how it’s such a meaningless number and how crass living out your life on social media is
They’re often more annoying than those people who overshare everything on facebook. You don’t use social media. We get it, if you did I’d have un-followed and de-friended you by now for going on and on about it.
You put a DVD in and it seems a bit quiet, so you turn it up - still quite quiet, up the volume a bit more. BOOOOOOM the movie kicks in, that was just a quiet intro and you’ve just woken up everyone within 3 streets.
I enjoy films at the cinema, I’ve enjoyed some of them a lot, but I’ve never felt the need to applaud at the end. Who are you clapping? The director? The actors? Why are you clapping here? They can’t hear you. It always seems super geeky and a bit tragic.
The only screening you can acceptably applaud at is one where a cast member or someone involved in making the film is in attendance, so stop clapping at the end of Christopher Nolan films at my local cinema, send him a gushy love letter or something.
The world is full of TLA’s (Three Letter Acronyms for the unacquainted) that just get thrown around all the time. But often you’ll come up against one you don’t know, someone will be spouting it in front of you and you’ll sit their trying to figure out what it is.
The problem then arises, if you ask it could be something elementary that you really should know, but the only window available to ask is straight away. If you ask late into a conversation you are essentially saying - “I don’t know what you’ve been talking about all this time” either that or “I’ve spent all this time trying to figure it out but I can’t”.
Back on washing again! It’s not always a pesky sock, maybe a T-shirt or something but you spend ages sorting out the colours and whites and stick it all in the machine, pick your settings press start and the door locks, you hear the water flow in and you turn around to see that one, now odd sock, looking back at you from the floor where you dropped you. It’s too late to put the damn thing in the wash now.
I’m pretty new to gardening having lived in a flat, but I’ve thrown myself in and I’m giving it a try. So I planted some stuff and now I have no idea if what is growing in the beds are weeds or the seeds I put in. If I start uprooting stuff i’ll probably find out it was all the plants I put in and if I leave it the weeds will no doubt choke the other plants off.
You know the person, who sees the gap as the door swings round and thinks they’re Indiana Jones and jumps through the gap in an attempt to get through the door a whole 5 seconds quicker. All that actually happens is they set off the doors sensors and it slams to a halt and everyone bumps into each other and the door and it takes even longer to get through.
