A FEW OBSERVATIONS AND QUESTIONS ON DAILY LIFE
(AKA “MIKE’S IMMUTABLE LAWS ON LIVING”)
Why is it when you’re driving along with NO ONE else on the road, and you approach either another vehicle or someone walking on the side of the road in your lane, that there’s ALWAYS another vehicle in the opposite lane right at THAT point?
Why is it when you’re driving during lawn mowing season and EVERY time you pass someone mowing their lawn, that the mower is either perpendicular or parallel right on the EDGE of the pavement the moment you pass them? (I call this the “PPM Syndrome” (Parallel Perpendicular Mower Syndrome).
Why is the streak on the outside of the windshield ALWAYS right where it blocks your view!
Why is it that no matter how long you are traveling ALL songs on the radio are JUNK and just as you get to your destination, a really GOOD and/or your favorite song comes on? (Corollary: If one of your favorite songs DOES come on during your journey, it’s ALWAYS on a far away station with static and/or very weak?)
Where DOES that other sock go after you take your laundry out of the dryer?
Why is it when you’re at work and are being VERY diligent and working every second for hours, that the INSTANT you decide to take a break, THEN your boss shows up?
Why is it that the 2 TV programs you’ve been waiting ages to see are on different channels AT THE SAME TIME? –PART “B” TO THIS LAW: VCR’s have all but conquered this law, UNLESS – you don’t have ANY blank tapes on hand 1 minute before the programs start! Yeah, it’s happened to me MORE than once!)
Why hasn’t anyone invented Braille signs so blind people can drive too?
Why is it that the INSTANT water comes in contact with the naked human body that the phone and/or doorbell rings?
Why does ANYTHING you spend a lot of money on go on a big markdown sale the NEXT day?
Why doesn’t ANY packaging EVER open at the “Tear Here”?
