At the driving range, WHY would a guy bring his two dogs with him and leave them in his car - just 20 feet behind us golfers? The dogs bark almost constantly, especially when anyone comes remotely close to the car. Of course, the dogs' owner is oblivious.....

Ants return a week after I soak the area with ant killer.  The label on the jug states as fact that it gives 90-day protection.  

I just....don't......get it.      :wtf:

In college I had a job that involved selling cigarettes. There was this one male customer who came in and bought a pack of smokes.  I turned around, handed him the package, and collected the money.  Right before he left, he told me I had a nice a$$.  I was so shocked.  I didn't know what to think.  How could he even see it?  I was wearing a smock.  I was was really young and inexperienced at the time.

I´ll go with a silly one and a serious one:

1) Sporting mullets in this day and age;

2) Why is it that a refugee gets permanent resident status in Canada, while I need to go through a lengthy process and provide a myriad of documents just to be CONSIDERED for permanent residency, with no guarantees that it´ll be granted?

The first time I went to a comic expo I saw a man publicly urinating outside the exhibition hall.  It was disgusting af, but nothing I hadn't seen before.  In hindsight, I should've reported him and he would've been arrested for indecent exposure and/or public urination.

It's ALL fiction. Don't get your panties in a wad.

As for things I'll never understand. Why, when there is a commercial for a medication, say Entresto, does the speaker say something along the lines of, "do not take Entresto if you are allergic to Entresto or any of it's ingredients"?  No f***ing shit? I should not take something if I'm allergic to it? Thanks for letting me know.

That kind of thing is one of many reasons this country is going in the shitter. Far too many people have become far too quick to sue for absolutely the most ridiculous reasons and there are a shit ton of ambulance chasing "lawyers" (I use that term as loosely as possible) who are willing to take the case because it's usually settled out of court and they stand to make a lot of money for very little effort.

I wonder how often that approach works.  I'm guessing it's close to zero.

Right. But a guy that fires off that comment a hundred times is bound to hit once. And a guy that's willing to say it a hundred times doesn't care and will exceed a hundred easy.

It's never worked for me as much as I'd like it to.

Why people put a container with an ounce or less of the product back in the fridge.  An ounce of milk.  A half spoonful of jam.  A quarter knife-stroke of mustard...
