In Which I Am Observant, Part Ten

Have you ever noticed that the airing frequency of a particular commercial increases in direct proportion to it's level of annoyingness?

Have you ever noticed that the one time someone takes you up on your offer to help that you made just to be polite a few weeks ago is during a time where you have other things already planned? And then you feel like a douche for backing out of your offer?

Have you ever noticed that birds will play target practice with your car just minutes after you've left the car wash, with a majority of said fecal splatter being on your windshield that is only smeared around with your washer fluid and wiper blades?

Have you ever noticed that your novelty ringtone is suddenly not so novel and actually a bit embarrassing when your phones rings at top volume when the office is oddly silent?

Have you ever noticed that there is no way to successfully come back from being caught singing to Katy Perry, even if it was just to be funny?

No? Well, I have.

What have you noticed lately?

Happy Monday, folks.

(Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight, Part Nine)

I noticed that I deal with the 3 P's every day since I became a mom: pee, poo, and puke.

That answering the phone with "are we moving to Vegas to strip?" is much more fun than "hello."

That Hot Topic now sells Guy Fawkes masks and that's a sign of the apocalypse.

That you can't out-redneck a redneck but you CAN outsmart one!

The commercial thing... YES, I've noticed. Though I wish the Touch 'N Brush infomercial would come on more often. It's hilarious!

This week I've realized that Mario and Luigi hats make Mario Kart a million times more fun...and I didn't even think that was possible!

LOL at the ring tone comment. It seems as though personalized ring tones were a fad anyway. What was once a "OMG I NEED TO HAVE A FUN RINGTONE" just a few years ago, has turned into something people aren't doing much anymore.

Oh technology.

I have noticed that the school holidays suck much more now that I am the parent than they did when I was the kid.

I've noticed that the passenger with the hacking cough always sits directly behind me and disperses his germs freely throughout the flight.

carissa said...

Ugh I hate when people actually take me up on offers. I mean not always, but when I don't mean it and im pretty sure they knew it...

Or maybe I'm just a bitch.

I've noticed that every time I get sick enough to take sick leave from work, my boss is also out of the office for the day. Why can't I be well when he's gone and sick when he's there?

Writer Ninja said...

Have you ever noticed that people call modern living complexes “apartments” when they are indeed mashed together?

Have you ever noticed that in car commercials most people have creepy, lower-toned voices?

Have you ever noticed that if you were to hold a blow-dryer out of your parked car’s window, you could get some good laughs when you see people begin to slow down?

Have you ever noticed that some things are a million times funnier in a serious atmosphere?

Well, I have.

Great post and great observations, Badass!

Cyndi: Out-smarting a redneck sounds like an easy challenge.

Britt: Good idea!

The Shanner of Attention: It moves so fast.

Maggie: Absolutely.

#1Nana: Sharing is caring.

Carissa: Nah, we all do it.

Shorty: That would be too fair.

Writer Ninja: Yes, but police don't take kindly to aiming your AirSoft pistol out the window at people.

I've noticed they 45-year-old guy two cubicles away with the Katy Perry ringtone...

I've noticed it always gets darkest before the storm, cause it gets brighter when the lightning and thunder arrives...

I've noticed the older I get, the less I seem to know, or more likely, the more I've forgotten (I swear I knew EVERYTHING when I was 18!)...

And I agree with Cyndi's observation:
"I noticed that I deal with the 3 P's every day since I became a mom: pee, poo, and puke."

Nej said...

I was just on my phone last night trying to find the most un-novel ring tone I could...for that exact same reason!!!!! :-)
