Things That Make Me Go…hmmmm

hmmmEver have those things in life that make you wonder?  I do.  Like when you park away from other cars in the parking lot and someone ALWAYS parks right next to you.  What’s up with that?

I don’t know.  Some things just boggle my mind.  Things like personal space.  Some people get wayyyy to close.  I have stood in lines at the post office and other public places and the person behind me is so close that I can feel their breath on my neck.  I don’t get that at all.

I also don’t know why guys want to talk to you when you are doing your business in the bathroom either.  That’s not what I consider a social place.

Traffic makes me go hmmmm a LOT.  This week I was driving to work when suddenly another driver jerks into my lane.  No looking.  No signal.  Suddenly he’s there and I had to slam on my brakes to keep from hitting him.   When I passed him later he seemed to be totally oblivious to the accident he was nearly involved in.  Okay, let’s go over this again….check your blind spot, USE YOUR TURN SIGNAL, safely change lanes.   Of course none of this applies to Nashville drivers — EVER.

Yeah, let’s don’t get me started on traffic or this will turn into a traffic blog.

How about just plain people walking?  I had three near misses in the hallway this week when people bolted out of rooms without looking to see if anyone was in the hall.  One guy just barreled out of the men’s room and I nearly pulled a groin stopping so as not to hit him.  He never looked back and walked on.

Call me crazy but I don’t think they should allow food or drinks during a Broadway show.  This isn’t the movie theatre and it sure isn’t your personal living room although people act like it.  I just think going to a show has a little more class than that.

There is one rug that our cat insists on attacking on a daily basis.  Not sure what’s going on there.

Why is it that slackers at work seem to get a free pass?

One of my least favorite things in life is selling or buying a house or car.  This never seems to be an easy process.

I’m not expecting the Nashville Predators to go very far in the playoffs.  They have been very frustrating and inconsistent this year.  They were so close to winning the Stanley Cup two years ago but I don’t expect them to get out of the first round of the playoffs this year.

I like this new football league – the Alliance of American Football.  I hope it can survive.

For the first time in years, I haven’t filled out a bracket for March Madness.  I haven’t watched a single college basketball game this season.

The Nashville Zoo has improved a lot since my wife and I moved here in 2014.  They are adding a new tiger exhibit next month.

Why is it not okay to express your opinion about something without others attacking you?  It seems that it’s okay to have opinion unless it is different from others.

Let me give you some advice…do not friend co-workers on Facebook.

Do you notice how impatient people are today?  Nobody wants to wait in lines and no one wants to be kind to others.  It’s either the food we eat or our phones that is affecting interaction with other people.

Speaking of phones…isn’t it amazing how we can live without them now?

If you are out in public today, count how many people are looking at their phones.

Lifeway Christian stores announced that they are closing all of their “brick-and-mortar” stores.  They are going to focus more on their online sales.  I guess I can understand this but I still like going into bookstores and touching books.

The calendar says it is spring but I’m waiting for the weather to get onboard with that.

I’ve been vegetarian/vegan since the beginning of the year and I haven’t gone hungry yet.  Since the change, I can’t help but wonder why we drink cows milk?  Who started that?

Just some things that make me go….hmmmm.
