Okay, But Why?

Tuesday, May 20, 2014


But why does my iphone suddenly die when it still shows 30% battery left?

Okay, but why do some Mexican restaurants NOT serve free chips and salsa? We all pretty much know by now the combination of the two are cheap enough to give away.

And why does my milk have crusties on the top every time I take off the lid? Milk shouldn't have crusties. Actually nothing should have crusties.

But why do I always break the zippers on my coats and jackets?

Why can't I pour myself a cup of coffee at least once without spilling a dribble of it first on the counter?

Okay but why does my candle still look like there's some candle left but yet it refuses to burn? That's false advertising.

And why is my deli meat always a little too wet for comfort?

But why do I always drop my phone in the black hole of my car between my driver's seat and console?

Why does my DVR sometimes just continue to fast forward even though I'm clicking play and profusely screaming STOP at the TV?

Okay but why do people still ask me for directions to places? I'm just going to direct them to google.

Why does my printer ink insist on ruining my life by pretending it's always low when I JUST BOUGHT NEW INK.

Why are jars of pickles so damn hard to open?

And why does my iphone look like its been dumped in honey and then thrown under my fridge to sit for two weeks whenever I take its case off?

Why do public toilets like to spray when you least expect it?

And why does the bowl of spinach I just threw into the pan suddenly shrink down to only one leaf?

Okay but why do some of my clothes have laundry detergent spots on them? I was under the impression laundry detergent did just the opposite...

And when is my chapstick going to the beach without me?

And why does Facebook always mistake me for a boy when tagging me in photos?

Okay but why does my iphone trap apps in a place where I can't get to them?

And why do waitresses ask me "have you ever been here before" right before I'm about to order? Even if I haven't, I'm pretty familiar with the process.

And who gets to choose which food buttons appear on the microwave? Are people really microwaving potatoes that often and defrosting vegetables?

And why do I occasionally get emails from phone numbers? And why do they always intimidate me?

Okay but really though, why?

  3. The deli meat... yuck... Gets me every time

  4. But really, I just can't get past the charging people for chips and salsa. In Texas that would be considered a crime!

  5. But seriously... these are all so true. I thought I was the only one...

  6. Haha, the chapstick one is so true!

  7. Have you figured out how to get laundry detergent stains out??? Because so far shout and rewashing it is not working out for me

    ReplyDelete
  8. When is my chapstick going to the beach without me....this is so freaking accurate.

  11. "Okay but why does my iphone trap apps in a place where I can't get to them?"

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM!! The only way I can get to my Shazam app is searching for it. Like typing it into the search box. It says it's in my Music folder BUT IT'S NOT. And you know damn well when you need Shazam, you need it FAST because the song is at the end and you cant miss it ahhh!

    And one more that's pissing me off lately:

    Why does the dishwasher never dry my plastic food containers and lids? there's always, ALWAYS water trapped in them. Even after the Extra Dry setting and waiting like 2 days to put them away.

    UGH.

    ReplyDelete
  12. AND ONE MORE: WHY does the first bite of blueberries I took for lunch in said plastic container have a huge-ass stem on it? Wood is not tasty. EVER. Yes I know what that sounds like.

    I'm having a crazy day.

    ReplyDelete
  13. yes. yes to all of these. I lose my phone to the black hole at least once a day. Damn that bone on the top of my hand for making it just thick enough not to fit between the two. By the time I arrive at my destination I forgot about it and have a minor freakout trying to figure out where my phone went. Oh that's right. Check under the seat from the back. Why!?

  14. I actually was microwaving potatoes quite frequently over the winter. It's faster than baking them. The wet deli meat really bothers me though.

    ReplyDelete
  15. OK but why are half of your questions phone related? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yep, if you haven't discovered that the easiest way to "bake" a potato is to slap that bad boy in the microwave and press the potato button, your life is too hard. (But seriously. I do it at least once a week. Defrost veggies? Not so much).

    ReplyDelete
  17. To the phone questions: Iphones have minds of their own. They cannot be controlled that's why hahaha ....

    ReplyDelete
  18. haha, I love this post. Milk crusties are the worst, same with the temperamental iphone!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Okay, but why does my need to pee increase immensely when I'm trying to unlock my front door?

    ReplyDelete
  20. God I hate freaking milk crusties... and the waitress thing is crazy. Like, is there a secret option on the menu I don't know about and that's why you're asking me? And damn that black hole in the car... or the couch!

  21. The one leaf of spinach! WHY?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. The iphone thing happened to me yesterday. I thought 17% meant I had at least another 1.5 minutes of instagram time but NO. And the deli meat thing freaks me out too. Why is it wet?

    ReplyDelete
  23. The DVR/remote/screaming battle happens in our house at least once a day. Just freaking stop fast forwarding! I pushed stop!

    ReplyDelete
  24. These are so brilliant! I always wonder about the microwave buttons

    ReplyDelete
  25. The spinach thing really gets me. You would think 1 bag of fresh spinach could easily feed 4 people but you're lucky if 2 people can get a decent serving size when its all cooked down. Feeds more like 1.5 people.

  29. NOTHING should have crusties....truer words have never been spoken

    ReplyDelete
  30. haha oh god the image of wet deli meat made me gag slightly, so true though!

    But why are my avocados always rock hard until they are suddenly brown sludge?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes yes yes I am so with you many of these things happen to me and make me wonder "but why" myself I would like to add why when I decide to make myself a boring sandwich for lunch do you come home with take away

    ReplyDelete
  32. Specific food items on the microwave. I mean really.. who actually uses them? Any by that I mean me.. once. I used the popcorn button and yes, I burnt my popcorn.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hate my printer, literally hate it! According to it's stupid little screen I'm ALWAYS low of ink!
