Random thoughts from people our age

So my friend Ed sent this list of "Random Thoughts From People Our Age" ...

As I read some of these lines out loud to Kates it was amusing to note how many of them we could relate to and we agreed with. Some of them kept us laughing for awhile ...

I have no idea who wrote these, but they're pretty great observations. Here are our favorites ...

    • I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

    • More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    • Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

    • Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

    • That's enough, Nickelback.

    • I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

    • Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know" feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose not to be friends with?

    • Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no Internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

    • There is a great need for sarcasm font.

    • How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

    • I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

    • Was learning cursive really necessary?

    • How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

    • I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

    • Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using "as in ..." examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and said "Yes, that's G as in... (10 second lapse) ...um ...Goonies."

    • While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it ... thanks Mario Kart.

    • MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

    • Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

    • Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

    • You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

    • Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.

    • There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

    • I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my 10-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

    • I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

    • Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.

    • I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
