    Adult Truths

    1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die

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

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

    4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

    5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

    6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

    7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

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

    9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

    10. Bad decisions make good stories.

    11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

    12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

    13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

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

    15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

    16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

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

    18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

    19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

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

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

    22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

    23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey -- but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

    24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important. Ladies.....Quit Laughing.

    Hehehe..... I am just getting into DVD. When the NEXT idea comes to market and Blue Ray is in the bargain bin, then I'll go to it.

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

    I am usually behind the gonadless idiot who backs down and lets the breaker in! But if I can, I gainsay the fool. More than one has gotten this lovely 'deer-in-the-headlights' look on their face when they realise - "I was blown off by a...a ... MINIVAN!"
    I actually once had another 2005 Grand Caravan 3.8L trying to blow past me...... onlookers had to be chuckling. I kept ahead of the fool with one hand nonchalantly on the wheel..... he could NOT win! [LMAO]

    Wow EL - remind me not to [try to] cut in front of you! ;)

    Actually; just yesterday, some guy picked me out of the line of cars as the sympathetic one that would let him cut in, after flying around everyone on the right as his lane was ending. HA! No way his little car was gonna' beat my truck! I let him ride the shoulder until he gave up and took his place in line. :D

    its a shame that so many just take advantage
    it has destroyed common courtesy and consideration

    the new american motto...
    every man for himself, F**K everyone else
    let em die, they aint my worry

    This is very appropriate in my household, since I'm losing hearing in one of my ears. My wife always complains when she has to repeat something; then she complains when I pretend to hear and don't do what she just asked :^)

    When I started a new job ( on occasion) I always informed the BOSS that IF he wanted to speak to me he had to face me and let me know he was going to speak or I couldn't hear him amd I don't lip read.....
    ( funny, but it worked! They never knew otherwise)
    That keeps conversations light and spaced!
    I actually convinced the BOSS that the day was a loser and we should go fishing....we did! Actually, it turned into a 2 day trip!
    Some days are like that!
