Random Tuesday Thoughts

Before I begin let me just say that it has come to my attention that the UnMom was the first to create the Random Tuesday Thoughts. It's has become so popular that I never really knew who started it and I'm afraid I have not been giving her the proper credit she deserves. Please forgive me.

Here we go...

- There's a couple who comes into my store all the time. They're probably in their late teens. The guy is a total douche. He's always making comments to this girl and throwing things on the counter for her to pay for. I really want to tell her she can do better but he's always standing right there!

- It's so funny to see babies all dressed up in sports gear. You know they really don't give a crap who wins. Your sports team is something that you're born into. When I was young I used to root for the team who had the prettiest colors or the coolest mascot. I considered myself to be a Miami Dolphins fan.

-Why do I always pick the wrong lane at the toll booth. I'm always behind the one who needs detailed directions to Canada. Come on people! Buy a map and pull over!

-I hate the brown paper towels they give us to use at school. It's just paper! It doesn't absorb anything. If they spent the money on real ones I wouldn't have to use so many. Surely it would even out.

-Have you seen the new mouse traps that hold the mouse inside the thing so you don't see it once it's captured. It's like a little dome of death. If you can't see the mouse inside then how do you know if one is in there? Do you have to pick it up and kind of give it a little shake to see if there's anything inside? If you do that, what happens if the mouse isn't dead yet and then you feel and hear it squirming around inside for a last chance at life? The thought of it creeps me out.

-Have you ever seen the dating commercials where the chick is riding the horse and she goes, "I'm just a 'goof' looking for my 'ball'."? Who the hell says shit like that? I think that's a surefire way to not get a date.

-I wish facebook would stop recommending I be friends with Hailey Glassman. Why would I want to be her friend? I don't know her. I'm not one of those crazies who like being "friends" with celebrities. I prefer to be friends with people I actually know.

-Friends don't let friends date guys who write "tends to think of himself of a one-man wolfpack" as their facebook status.

I always pick the wrong line for everything!!! especially grocery stores.

I have not seen that dating commercial, but I am intrigued by any woman looking for balls!!! hahaha!

The Peach Tart said...

These are some good ones.

Alix said...

NEVER get behind me at the grocery store, if you think toll booths are bad.

The "goofball chick" is high on crack, and that's all I have to say about that.

And if you like the Miami Dolphins uniforms, may I please point you in the direction of the Florida Gators? Go Orange and Blue!

As for Hailey Glassman. Steer clear of that chica. I have a feeling she can do more damage to you than her daddy sans anesthesia!

Great post!

Okay, you made me giggle. A lot. I can't even pick out one section to comment to. Happy RTT, you rocked it.

shopannies said...

so agree with sports outfits but my brother would give you a debate he dressed his boys in baseball outfits to come home in

Melanie's Randomness said...

HAHA Yes I've seen that Goof commercial. I agree!!! It's sooo cheesy. hehe.

Barb said...

I hate it when people let other people treat them like dirt. Oh, excuse me, I have to tell my no-good hubby to get to work on the "honey-do" list, then to rub my feet, walk the dogs, get dinner started, do the laundry, pick up the kids, ....

he, he, just kidding!

Midtown Girl said...

Thank you for hating that ridiculous "goof ball " commercial as well.

Someone needs to bitch slap her off that horse.

"tends to think of himself of a one-man wolfpack"

Total ripoff from The Hangover. Guy cannot even come up with his own, albeit lame, tag line.


Keely said...

Those mouse hotels don't work, anyway. Just kill the little beastie in a proper battle like the mousey warrior he is.

Hm. Possibly I've had too much Robax today.

BlackSnow said...

"one man wolf pack" lol..the first thing kinda sucks .

Asking for directions is much more easier than reading.

I think I'm the only person in the world who doesn't have facebook:)).

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

We have one of those 'humane' mouse traps, only you can see inside...the mouse goes in and can't get out. Or at least it's not supposed to. It wasn't so 'humane' when a mouse got stuck halfway out trying to escape.

I always seem to pick the slow as molasses lines, too...toll or otherwise.

I haven't seen that commercial yet - now I'll be on the lookout for it! ;)

Happy RTT! :)

Mango Girl said...

I love the dating commercials!

Funny thoughts...thanks for sharing. I might play next week.

Nuns On Fire said...

Hahaha, I remember the all-important starter jacket trend from gradeschool? I made my mom buy me one, and I picked the Hornets, 'cause their colors are purple n' teal :P

Barb said...

If you're not afraid of getting bitten, it's actually easy to kill a mouse. (assuming you can catch it). Just hold it by the tail, put your fingers from your other hand at the back of his head and pull the two ends apart. Snaps the neck and kills them instantly. If you do it right. Don't ask me how I know.

I would have to tell the guy in the grocery store. Have to, have to, HAVE TO!!

My Uncle would not let my brother and I into his house if we were wearing the wrong colours ... I used to wear green on purpose - it saved having to go to the boring family dinners!

Facebook ... I didn't like the girl who sat behind me at school ... and I still don't like her now!!

Hit 40 said...

Great random thoughts!!! I have not seen the dome of death. Excellent. I have some chipmunks that need to die. Maybe, they would like to check into the dome of death.

White Rabbit said...

you said you hadn't seen Hangover right?

Thats where the one man wolfpack is from. And it's sort of funny actually. But he's still a loser
