Life is tough when pretty much everything annoys you. And let me tell you, my life is tough! Chewy well-done cheap steak like shoe leather tough. Here’s today’s list of dumb observations… or, rather phrased… observations of dumb things…
You’ve seen this. A person asks a question on Amazon about a product, something like, “Is this cup microwave safe?” To which some yahoo trots in and says, “I don’t know. I’ve never tried it in the microwave.”
Why did you even bother to try and answer the question? Was it really that critical for you to display your ignorance? <eye roll>
You call some business, you get “the maze” of options, with the first thing you hear being, “Please listen closely, our options have recently changed.”
Issue: Methinks they’re playing fast and loose with the word ‘recently’. This same message has been in place for over eight years! So, call me cynical, but here’s what The Grump thinks is really going on…
Translation: “Too many people are stupid, and will contact the wrong department if we don’t push them to listen to the options.”
Why can’t they just say that? “Hey dummy! Listen to the options before you punch in a number!”
…and a final parting shot!
