Thursday Thoughts


I got an email today. It has been around a long time. Here are a few of the list that really made me stop and wonder...

EVER WONDER ..

WHY 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?
(So Walgreens can have a drive-thru pick up for prescriptions?)

WHY people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke?
(I do this ALL the time. It justifies the calories in the double cheeseburger and large fries.)

WHY do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters?
(DUH!!)

WHY do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage?

WHY do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering?
(Now I figured this one out... There are ATM machines which the blind are able to use. If banks had to build a seperate type of machine keyboard built with braille lettering, it would be an huge extra cost for the bank.)

WHY is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?
(SCARY)

WHY is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
(in some cases, how appropriate)

WHY is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? WHY don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

WHY didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

And… my very favorite… IF CON IS THE OPPOSITE OF PRO, IS CONGRESS THE OPPOSITE OF PROGRESS?

  3. I order a Diet Coke because I don't drink any soda with sugar and always have diet if I'm having soda. Force of habit I guess as that's what my parents always had if there was soda in the house.

    And as for that last question the answer is obviously YES!!!
