This is for all those things and experiences you have in life that make you sit back and scratch your head and think..
"THAT JUST DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!"
Do you ever wonder if it's just you who feels that way?

A biggie, that doesn't make sense to me, especially this time of year, is the idea of spending $25-$50 on a costume for your kids, to take them door to door to get FREE candy!!!
WTF?
I remember MAKING my own costumes, from thrift store finds, or even raiding my parents closet ( One year, a witch , with my mom's black dress..and one year I wore my dad's old work clothes and went out as a street bum.)
Halloween has gotten far too commercial, to the point of being no fun anymore, and IT JUST DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
:shk:

1. The fact that people wear Indian, cowboy, playboy nurse etc costumes on Halloween. WTF?


2.

What I don't get is the people who buy commercialized clothing at stores like hot topics to look like a rebel, or to be an individual. In my punk days I made the clothing. Green long jean shorts with bleach splotches and ratted threads hanging from the bottom. A green trench coat, and whatever.

That was me... I did it, I didn't buy it from a store to be an individual like everyone else.

Agreed. No one wants to be stereotyped, but they all want to dress like everyone else.
I have been trying to drill this into my 14 year old son's head.
He dresses all "Gangsta" like he just fell out of a hip hop video, but hates it when people label him that way.
Go figure...

I hope you wrote back. One word: Yes.

I almost wrote a rant about this one, but I'll put it here instead. I went to the pharmacy today (RiteAid). They were busy taking down the Halloween decorations and putting up the Christmas merchandise.

WTF?

Oh yes..I witnessed this at the mall today. For last few weeks I could go into the "Seasonal" section of the department store, and one side of the aisle was pumpkins and witches, while the other was Santas and Snowflakes.
DISGUSTING.
And I know for sure that January 1 will be Valentine's day stuff.
Sheesh.

I don't understand Halloween ( hallowed eve) either. You spend all year telling your kids not to take candy from strangers then make it a special event to take candy from strangers. You tell them every day, "that stuff will rot your teeth!" then let them stock up on candy that's guaranteed to keep rotting their teeth for months to come. :shk:

You know what I really don't get silent letters in words. I can understand adding a letter if the same word has two different meanings, but for others I just can't seem to grasp the reasoning behind it, like knife. I don't hear a k sound in that word and there is only one meaning for knife. For some unexplained reason however if you omit that silent letter the word is incorrectly spelled.

WTF

first of all, English language = Fail

also, the hot dog bun to hot dog ratio doesn't make much sense...
BTW our family usually looked like we were celebrating Halloween and Christmas from October to march every year. my mom liked the Christmas lights because they were "pretty" so they didn't come down.

Government paperwork. VA Paperwork in particular.

When has it become necessary for you to repeat information that you had just written in 2 pages ago? Are Bureaucrats that attention deficient?
