Why is it that stores put the larger size items lower on the rack? I ask you, does that make any sense? I’ve noticed when you buy such things as underwear, socks and jeans, the small sizes are always at eye-level, and the larger sizes are inches from the floor. Reason dictates that it is much more difficult for a larger person to bend down than it is for one of those people who could pass through a straw without touching the sides. And why in the world would you put anything for older people down lower than eye-level? Don’t these goobs know that for most people over the age of 50, when you bend over and straighten up, it takes several minutes to get your equilibrium back up to snuff? And don’t even think about squatting because after a certain age, the body’s knees completely revolt.
Why do companies often put things such s salsa in a tall jar with small opening? And if people see a condiment bottle with a squirt top sitting on a table in a restaurant, why don’t they set it upside down so that the stuff will be at the top ready for the next patron instead of making them have to sling the bottle around to get the stuff back to the little opening?
Why is it that the older we get, the bigger the pills get? Is it that older people need a bigger dose, so instead of taking two of something we have to take something a horse would have trouble swallowing? I mean, they make chewable medicines for children, so why not adults? Once you reach a certain age, the doctor wants you to supplement everything: calcium, potassium, magnesium, Vitamin D and so forth. Then he’ll have you take a regular vitamin, too, just in case he’s run out of alphabet. And then there’s fish oil. I didn’t even know fish had oil in them. When I asked him why, he said it helped unclog my body, I guess kind of like adding gas additive to your car. When I asked why he thought I need it, he said, “Anybody that eats like you has got to be clogged.” I’m wondering how he knows what I eat unless he’s out stalking his patients. Considering how long you have to sit and wait to see him, that could explain some things.
Now they have these sensors in new vehicles that show you when there’s something behind you or how close you are to something behind you. How neat is that! I’m wondering, though, if you still manage to back into something or somebody, can they sue you because you had fair warning that they were back there? Maybe all vehicles should be like big trucks and have that beeping noise and a robotic voice that alerts everyone behind it: “Beep! Beep! Warning: I can’t see behind me, so you’re on your own.” One thing the law loves is a loophole.
Hope your week is fantastic or at least pleasant, and thanks for reading.
