Thanks Molly for this!!!
1. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
2 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.
3 I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
4 There is a great need for a sarcasm font.
5 I think everyone has a movie that they love so much; it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it.
6 How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
7 I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
8 I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
9 The only time I look forward to a red light is when I’m trying to finish a text.
10 Was learning cursive really necessary?
11 LOL has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".
12 Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".
13 How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?
14 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 and sisters!
15 While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.
16 MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
17 Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
18 I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.
19 Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
20 I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
21 Bad decisions make good stories.
22 Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!
23 Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from; this shouldn't be a problem....
24 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.
25 Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.
26 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.
27 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 research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
28 While watching the Olympics, I find myself cheering equally for China and USA. No, I am not of Chinese descent, but I am fairly certain that when Chinese athletes don’t win, they are executed.
29 I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Darnit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
30 I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
31 I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.
32 Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
33 It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.
34 I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
35 Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.
36 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 my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...
37 My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?
38 I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.
39 I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
I can't remember where I read this, but I thought it was nice.

Julio Diaz has a daily routine. Every night, the 31 year old social worker ends his hour-long subway commute to the Bronx on stop early, just so he can eat at his favorite diner.
But one night last month, a Diaz stepped off the No. 6 train and onto a nearly empty platform, his evening took an unexpected turn.
He was walking toward the stairs when a teenage boy approached and pulled out a knife.
"He wants my money, so I just gave him my wallet and told him, 'Here you go.'" Diaz says.
As the teen began to walk away, Diaz told him, "Hey, wait a minute. You forgot something. If you're going to be robbing people for the rest of the night, you might as well take my coat to keep you warm."
The would-be robber looked at his would-be victim, "Like what's going on here?" Diaz says. "He asked me, 'Why are you doing this?"
Diaz replied: "If you're willing to risk your freedom for a few dollars, the I guess you must really need the money. I mean, all I wanted to do was get dinner and if you really want to join me..hey you're more than welcome."
"You know, I just felt maybe he really needs help." Diaz says.
Diaz says he and the teen went into the diner and sat in a booth.
"The manager comes by, the dishwasher come by, the waiters come by to say hi," Diaz says. "The kid was like, 'You know everybody here. Do you own this place?"
"No, I just eat here a lot," Diaz says he told the teen. "He says, 'But you're even nice to the dishwasher.'"
Diaz replied, "Well haven't you been taught you should be nice to everybody?"
"Yeah, but I didn't think people actually behaved that way", the teen said.
Diaz asked him what he wanted out of life. "He just had almost a sad face," Diaz says.
The teen couldn't answer Diaz- or he didn't want to.
When the bill arrived, Diaz told the teen, "Look, I guess you're going to have to pay for this bill, 'cause you have my money and I can't pay for this. So if you give me my wallet back, I'll gladly treat you.:
The teen "didn't even think about it" and returned the wallet, Diaz says. "I have him $20..I figure maybe it will help him out. I don't know."
Diaz says he asked for something in return- the teens knife- "and he gave it to me."
Afterward, when Diaz told his mother what happened, she said, "You're the type of kid that if someone asked you for the time, you gave them your watch."
"I figure, you know, if you treat people right, you can only hope that they treat you right. It's as simple as it gets in this complicated world"
I haven't blogged in a few days, not much has been going on. Scott will miss a little work, he ha a staph infection in his hand. And a big LOL to his boss who said this morning that "Scott's off because he has a yeast infection".
I hope we still get a chance to go on vacation this summer. If I am going to be here until the end of the year, then some things are going to have to get better. I am NOT going to continue to be used and treated like crap anymore. It will hurt some feelings, and probably spark a lot of texts and phone calls, but I don't care. I am done. If you want to be my friend, hang out and do things, I am all for that. I enjoy getting out of the house. But don't talk crap about me, drive by to see if I am at home, and then call to ask whatever you want from me. /end rant
