Age Appropriate Humor

3.31.2010
I got this from another blog, but thought it was worth reposting. Apparently, it's been going around as an email forward, as "Thoughts of a 25-35 Year Old," which normally I would think was stupid, except I agree with every single one of them. Good times.

 ·       More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.

·       Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

·       Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you’re going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you’re crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.
·       That’s enough, Nickelback.

·       Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the “people you may know” feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose not to be friends with?

·       Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn’t work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ’s. We just figured it out. Today’s kids are soft.

·       Sometimes, I’ll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the hell was going on when I first saw it.

·       I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I’ll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone’s laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I’m still the only one who really, really gets it.

·       How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

·       I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

·       I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

·       The only time I look forward to a red light is when I’m trying to finish a text.

·       LOL has gone from meaning, “laugh out loud” to “I have nothing else to say”.

·       I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

·       Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron test is absolutely petrifying.

·       How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear what they said?

·       I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

·       While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it…thanks, Mario Kart.

·       I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.

·       Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty.

·       Whenever I’m Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. 546 pictures? Don’t mind if I do!

·       Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I’m from, this shouldn’t be a problem…

·       You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you’ve made up your mind that you just aren’t doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

·       Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don’t want to have to restart my collection.

·       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.

·       I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes when I could swear I didn’t make any.

·       “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this ever.

·       I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV. There’s so much pressure. ‘I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren’t watching this. It’s only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?’

·       I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

·       When I date someone new, I’m terrified of mentioning something they haven’t already told me but that I learned from some light internet stalking.

·       Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed for pedophiles…

·       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.

·       Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

·       I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

·       Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn’t know what do to with it.

·       I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.

·       I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

·       The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There’s nothing like being made to feel like a fat bastard before dinner.
