Dear Diary …
Something I never understand is why we let certain things exist even though they are completely dumb or just flat out wrong. And yet … we do absolutely nothing to correct it, and just go about our lives putting up with it.
Over the weekend I made sausages. Now … I don’t go making no sausages from scratch with giant tubes and whatnot. I bought sausages … made some peppers and onions … throw ‘em on a sub bun … and whop-PEOM … sausage and peppers.
Here’s the problem … the sub bun.
Bread has been around since … like … you know … Jesus … but in all that time we still allow that when you buy sub buns … and hot dog buns are like this too … if you buy ones that are pre-sliced, it is done in a way where 95% of the bun is on one side of the slice, and then this thin, wispy little bread layer is left on the other side. And from there … disaster is guaranteed 100% of the time and your bun is falling apart and sausage is splooging all over the place while you try to eat.
There is no reason for this!
Just slice it evenly down the middle and we don’t have a problem. There is not a human alive that wants it the way we currently do it … so why is this OK?
Here’s another one …
I went to the store recently because I have a drill … and the battery on the drill is dead. So I go to buy a replacement battery.
And guess what I learned?
Replacement batteries for your drill cost more than just BUYING A NEW DRILL that comes with a brand new battery!
And I tell this story to somebody and they say, “Oh yeah, that’s a thing.”
Why is that “a thing?”
Like I don’t understand the reasoning at all. Why am I getting more stuff for less money? And why am I paying more money for less stuff?
If I need new tires for my car, they don’t cost $32,000.
It just seems so simple … and yet here we are making it harder on ourselves for no reason.
Till next time Diary … I say … Goodbye.
