Five Things I Will Never Understand

Smoking cigarettes – Why in the world would you pay so much money to cause damage to your body? Not to mention this disgusting habit affects others around you. It’s one of the stupidest things I’ve seen someone do in my life. There is no excuse to start. It’s highly unattractive, in my opinion. Love those yellow teeth, buddy.

Valet parking – Why would I pay someone to do something I can easily do myself? Some people worry about their car as it’s being driven away, too. What’s the guy doing in there? Is he going to steal something? Did I put the GPS in the storage compartment? And then you have to WAIT for your car to come back to you when you want to leave whatever fancy joint you’re at. When your car is in sight, it’s almost an instinct to scope it over for marks or dents, and when you get inside, you check through everything. Just a bit stressful.

“Checking in” on Facebook – Yeah, I’m not home right now. Come rob my house. Also, Pete Johnson and Holly Marie are with me. Be sure to break into their homes too. Look, we even took a picture to prove it.

Majoring in Liberal Arts – I understand the idea of a Liberal Arts college or university, but to major in Liberal Arts? Which sauce would you like with that?

“Reality” Shows – The Jersey Shore. The Bachelor/Bachelorette. Keeping Up with the Kardashians. You get where I’m going. How can people become brainwashed into watching these shows? None of it is real! I don’t understand how these idiots make so much money for being idiots. I’m going to be paying off my student loans for years and can’t find full time work in or out of my field, and these pinheads can just be complete twits and become millionaires?! Seriously, what is wrong with this world?!

What are some things you can’t seem to wrap your head around?

    Very true, particularly about valet parking. It’s a good thing you don’t live in LA. I used to have to valet park at the supermarket there. Even Pollo Loco (fast food chicken restaurant) had valet parking.

    That’s ridiculous! There’s valet parking over here for IHOP. I don’t get it.

    For the most part, agreed! Will never understand why people are smoking cigarettes….and what has bothered me even more is why America loves some of these reality tv shows and the people on them ! Complete mystery to me

    There is so much information out there explaining how bad smoking is for your body — like those graphic lung cancer and brain tumor commercials — and people still do it. I will never understand. I get that the nicotine addiction makes it tough, but from what I know, most people don’t even try to fight it. As I always say, there is no reason to start.
    Another thing I’ve been thinking about is the fact that smokers are allowed more breaks at work to smoke their cigarettes. In most cases, those breaks aren’t deducted from their pay.
    How encouraging.
    I bought a pack of candy cigarettes a few weeks ago and took an extra work break. Co-workers found it comical and stupid. They should take a look at themselves.
    And those “reality” shows, a whole different kind of hypnotizing addiction. It’s disgusting how much people know about those senseless shows instead of more important and useful things.
