I Will Never Get It

The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - FEATURES -

• I will never get the full-arm tat­too on women. They claim it is an artis­tic ad­di­tion … but I think it’s safe to say that most men re­gard it as a dis­trac­tion.

• Ketchup on a hot dog. The lead condi­ment for hot dogs is mus­tard— fol­lowed by any other com­bi­na­tion of rel­ish, sauer­kraut, onions, pep­pers, cheese or chili. Ketchup should be re­served for ham­burg­ers.

• Peo­ple who get hand­i­capped tags so that they can trans­port elderly rel­a­tives … then con­tinue to use the tag so they can get close park­ing for their own healthy bodies. Lazy. In­con­sid­er­ate. It’s all about me.

• Driv­ers who camp in the far-left lane on a high­way and refuse to move to the right — where they be­long. It is called a “pass­ing lane” for a rea­son.

• And, while we are fo­cused on in­con­sid­er­ate driv­ers, those who find it too much trou­ble to use a turn sig­nal should be con­demned to a life­time of liv­ing auto hell — per­pet­u­ally stuck in rush-hour traf­fic on the Schuylkill Ex­press­way.

Noth­ing on this list will be re­solved by com­plain­ing. I still will find my­self mut­ter­ing, “I don’t get it,” nu­mer­ous times dur­ing each day. But, at least there is the sat­is­fac­tion of pub­licly an­nounc­ing my be­wil­der­ment … thus pro­vid­ing an ex­cuse for the puz­zled look on my face as I try to nav­i­gate Amer­ica in the year, 2018.
