A good friend of mine sent me these interesting "realities" that we in this great country have simply come to accept as the norm. That is, until you see them in print and you have a "What The Hey" moment when your brain finally digests how stupid something actually is!
So here is the "Spread the Stupidity" list I currently have…you just know there has to be more;
Only in America …..do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
Only in America …..do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.
Only in America …..do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
Only in America …..do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the
driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
Only in America……do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
Only in America …..do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.
Being Norwegian I always ask people to talk slow when they explain something to me. However I am even more puzzled by this list of "why do we do these things"…things.
If you can think of any more let me know. Until I hear from you good people I think I will go into a corner of the house and stare at a nail hole. At least I can understand the "what and why of that".
