Points to Ponder (Email Gems)

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. (LOL)

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you
realize you're wrong. (That never happens, does it?)
3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was
younger. (totally!)
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font. (Amen!)
5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? (I know how.)

6. Was learning cursive really necessary? (Sure)
7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty
sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood. (LOL)
8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the
Person died.
9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
10. Bad decisions make good stories. (true!)
11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work
when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for
the rest of the day.
12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I
don't want to have to restart my collection...again.
13. 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. (True!)
14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash

this - ever.
15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?), but
when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice
mail . What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run
16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not
seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to
answer when they call. (So true!)
19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers . I would bet on any given Friday or
Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
20. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option
21. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first
saw it. (LOL - like Chinatown!)
22. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand
than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
24. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and
25. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod
and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up
to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers
and sisters!
27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get
dirty, and you can wear them forever. (I don't know who wrote this, but I want to see their pants after 1 week.)
28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?
29. 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.
30. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers,
but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.
31. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still
not know what time it is.
32. 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 everyone can find and push the snooze button from

3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

Number 2 reminds me of my Daddy. He loved to debate and was so skilled that somewhere in mid debate, you realized you were suddenly arguing his point. He was good.

Star said...

All true. Except the pants thing.

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Those are SO true!

I'm at a loss to explain why the colors reversed. I wrote this in black and my comments were in green. Where did the red come from??!!

sage said...

the way to redeem oneself from bad decisions is to write about it... (can you retype this in a sarcasm font?)

Joy Des Jardins said...

What a GREAT list...I love it; and related to SO much of it. Too funny....thanks Judy.

Kay Dennison said...

These are priceless!!! Thanks!!!!!

HalfCrazy said...

Haha nice post!

Dang I hate number 2 too. When I realize it's my mistake, I'm gonna go like, "Okay, I should have kept my mouth shut!" else we wouldn't be having this argument!

#3, it's amazing I can get to actually sleep amidst school stuff! I don't understand why I don't like siesta time when I was a kid.

#12, I chose to ignore Blu-Ray. It's driving me mad. What's wrong with DVD? Stop churning out new ones, industry! Give the DVDs more life. Blu-Ray Discs take up too much space. Costly too.

#28, you should see some College kids too. You're gonna have to wonder why they were accepted cos a lot of them are so damn immature and are not really interested in their degree.

I know how to fold a fitted sheet, but tell me: What is a snooze button? :roll:

Pat said...

Judy: re #22 rememmber your shoulders and they can really play up in later years if you don't treat them with respect. Guess what I'm suffering from just now. I blame the rock climbing.

colleen said...

Number 8 jumps out at me. I always wonder why obituaries don't way how/why the person died. The fine line between boredom and hunger resonated too!

LZ Blogger said...

I agree with most of these... especially the funny ones! ~ jb///

I loved all of these! So true so true

Floridora said...

These are great, I laughed at "drop the phone and run away." :)
