I Don’t Get It. Wait—! Nope. Still Don’t Get It.

There are just some things people do that I don’t get. Like, at all.

So today I was driving back home from a class, and I can’t tell you how many times I will see bumper stickers with the words “My child is an honor student at such and such school.”

Okay, I don’t mean to be hard, but…really? Seriously? C’mon. Would you walk up to a random person and be like, “Hello, random stranger! Did you know that my kiddos are honor students at their school?! I have such intelligent offspring, don’t I?”

I mean, really? You choose to decorative your car, and that’s the best you can do?

Then there’s the whole texting thing. Like almost every teenager, I LOVE texting, but I will never understand why people, whether it’s your best friend, or your aunt Helga, will send you a text asking you to call them. It makes sense if they’ve already tried calling you, and leaving you a voice mail, and now texting is their last option, but besides that…why are you asking me to call you, when you can call me yourself?

Unless, you’re embarrassed to or something.

And, last but not least….amusement park lines.

Oh, man.

Alright, let me get this straight: some people will actually wait in line for an hour or two, just to ride a ride that lasts for…two minutes…?

Ooookay, then.

I don’t get bragging. I don’t understand why people can’t just call you themselves. I don’t want to wait in a three hour line for a three minute ride.

I guess there’s just some things in life we will never understand, no matter how many times people try to explain them to us. That can make us feel like outsiders at times. But the good news is, we get to have a sense of humor about it. I love that about life. No matter how stupid or overwhelming it can get, we can just laugh it off and learn not to take it all so seriously.

What’s something that you don’t get? Let’s laugh about it together.
