Haven’t done these in a while but I was feeling inspired so here goes nothing…
I try not to just flat out complain on here, but these are things I will just never understand…
Why at the baggage claim does everyone huddle up as close as they can to the edge to wait for their bags? Does no one realize that if everyone just takes two steps backwards we will all be able to see more clearly and not have to push past each other when our bag comes around? Does huddling close like that actually help anyone or just make it more difficult for everyone?
I really don’t understand the cars that race right behind the firetrucks. Everyone’s pulling over to make room for the emergency vehicle because out there somewhere there’s an emergency going on, and then some nerd out there thinks that what he’s doing is equally important and just speeds along behind the firetruck, as if all the cars are pulling to the side for him. Who is that guy and really, what is he doing that is so important?
I don’t understand the people who say “Oh, I could never live anywhere else but X” when in reality, they have never lived anywhere else other than place X so it is impossible for them to make such a statement. Such a statement is just like stating a fact (“I have never lived anywhere else”) and will have no influence on what people actually think of place X, regardless of what effect you’re attempting to have.
Ok, this isn’t a complaint, but I just wanted to point out that Mexico is where shoes go to die. My husband and I both had shoes eat it in Mexico and since I’m sure you want to see proof in pictures, here you go:
I guess that’s a testament to how much walking we did there without a car. And no, I did not have an accident in the picture above…I actually had just washed dishes and well, didn’t notice the awkwardness of the picture until after the moment had passed. Whoops.
I’ll never understand people who try to get a (successful) haircut in a country using a language they don’t speak. Wait, that one’s me…
Sometime during this past spring, I decided that I needed to cut my own hair, since I didn’t have time to go to the salon and I was feeling broke after buying so many plane flights to see my husband. Lesson #1: Don’t cut your own hair unless you’re going for that purposely uneven look. Lesson #2: Don’t think that getting your hair cut in another country where you can’t speak to the stylist will actually make said bad haircut any better (No matter what your husband tells you).
So, that picture above was taken right after my mexi haircut. Its really not that bad, it just didn’t fix the unevenness, because apparently my grunts and finger pointing weren’t able to portray “I royally screwed up this side so you might just want to do something new all together”….imagine that…
I will never understand people who drop their phones in the toilet. That would happen to drunk college girls all the time back in the day and I’d hear about it in undergrad and think WOW, what were you doing to drop your phone in the toilet??
Actually, I take back #6. I totally understand why people now drop their phones in the toilet and its because they put their phones in their pants back pocket! And I knew this! Yet I still did this last night – and was sober I might add. Dah. Just my luck that in the week that we’re leaving and I’m trying to get a hold of all my friends to say goodbye that I would drown my phone. Drunk college girls, I’m sorry for laughing at you then. Who knew that 8 years later I’d be racking my brain trying to remember what it is you did to get it to turn back on…
Alright, a totally frivolous post but between tying up loose ends in Texas, packing out and moving, and an upcoming surgery, I wanted to write something a little light-hearted! Have a great weekend everyone and please stop by Jen’s for more Quick Takes!
