In Which I Am Observant, Part Four

Have you ever noticed that the one time you don't check your order before leaving the fast food drive-thru lane is when they screw everything up?

Have you ever noticed that your bladder will demand to be emptied the minute you return to work after a break?

Have you ever figured out the reason why your sandwich tastes funny after you took a large bite of peanut butter and jelly on moldy bread?

Have you ever spent $60 filling your gas tank at $2.55 a gallon, to find out afterwards that the gas station a half mile away is selling it for $2.29?

Have you ever made a rude joke after smelling something rancid in public, and later realized the origin on the smell was something you stepped in?


Well, I have. I've experience all of these things.

What things have you noticed?

(Part One, Part Two, Part Three)

I've noticed that men of all ages can't help but look at big boobs on women who run.
I've noticed that many people who beg for change on the street are surprisingly polite.
I'd also check your shoes before wondering about rancidness! You never know!

I have noticed that no matter how much space is available on either side of the parking space, I will never be able to parallel park and the ass end of my car will be in the street

I have noticed that whenever I get a fresh cup of coffee something alwasy comes up that I need to fix immediately, thus returning 15 minutes later to a lukewarm drink

I'm woefully unobservant this morning. I've noticed that I'm sick, and that your post made me sort of half-chuckle. Ugh.

MadWoman said...

I've noticed that I'm not nearly as observant as you are.

Have you noticed it's becoming harder and harder to distinguish fake boobs from real ones?

On Saturday I noticed on my arrival at a college...that my folder and memory stick were still on the shelf at my house.

Have you ever noticed that when you're most comfortable and relaxed - it's time to get up?

Lola said...

Have you ever noticed that when you're on vacation you eat way more than you ever would at home?

Thanks for the awesome guest post, man!

Moonspun: Um, yeah. I'm guilty of this, but I am a major boob-man. Show me some cleavage, and I'll be yours forever.

Cape Cod Gal: I'd rather park two miles away from a place than have to parallel park. I can do it, I just don't like to.

Miss Grace: Only sort of half-chuckle? Damn.

MadWoman: It's a curse.

SWAX: Yeah, but it gives me an excuse to look at them even more intently.

Splodge: I have noticed that, and I've also noticed that the earlier you have to get up, the heavier your eyelids seem to be.

Lola: Oh, yeah. I've noticed that. Vacation eating is like Thanksgiving eating. Glad you liked the post!

I realize that no matter what I do, Alex will tear apart the house in about 10 minutes.

Badass Geek said...

Aunt Becky: 10 minutes? That's pretty quick for such a youngin'.
