This thread is about those silly annoying things you notice that drive batty. Can be anything!

I'll go first ->>>

Have you ever noticed that the heroine in romantic movies always has a fabulous wardrobe and wears something different every day...

BUT

When she packs to leave in a huff she manages to fit everything in a tiny suitcase that would only hold 3 days of clothing max?

Ok, your turn.

Oooo, this could be fun!

Do you ever notice that no matter how much work you do before a party, you still end up running around like a maniac the day of the party? I hate that!

Have you noticed that on the soaps (not that I ever watch them! ), people have babies, but then you never see them past the first few days, and then a year later, the baby has somehow grown to be 10 years old!

(this is from a standup comedian I saw once, but I have always remembered it)

Have you ever noticed that anyone driving faster than you is a maniac, and anyone driving slower than you is a moron?

That would have been George Carlin

Have you ever noticed how people always turn to face the elevator's doors when they enter? (For fun, face the opposite wall, and see the strange looks people will give you.)

I think that the brand names for Depends incontinence products and Always menstrual products need to be switched.

When it comes to menstruation, do you need to be using something every day? No, it depends.

But if you have problems with incontinence, you should probably be wearing something always.

Why is it that my daughter can sleep through the loud trains that pass by our bedroom window all day, but if I sneeze quietly her eyes pop wide open?

…that it’s really difficult to take weight OFF, and takes a long time to boot, but that it’s terrifically easy to put it ON, and quickly at that?

Sigh.
