Things I Don't Understand

So, I really thought that there was a Dr Cox rant from Scrubs about "Things I Don't Understand" and it was hilarious, and it would have been the perfect start to this post.

Apparently, such a thing does not exist. We will soldier on, regardless.

Sunday's Thing That I Don't Understand:

How it is that people can not lock the door to the change room when they go to try things on?

Unfortunately, this is not a hypothetical. Nor did it, like, happen to me today and I thought I'd blog about this random occurrence. It is not a random occurrence. People do it all the freaking time. I just do understand how they do it. You go in, you shut the door, you lock the door, you take off all your clothes and try on those Speedos that no-one in the history of the world really looks hot in. It's not that hard.

Feel free to chime in with your own Thing I Don't Understand or Stupid Shoppers story.

And I assume the quote I was thinking of was this one (all you need to do is change 'care' to 'understand' and it's all good!):

Dr Cox: I suppose I could riff a list of things that I care as little about as our last week. Let's see... low carb diets, Michael Moore, the Republican National Convention, Kabbalah & all Kabbalah-related products, Hi-Def TV, the Bush daughters, wireless hotspots, the OC, the UN, recycling, getting Punk'd, Danny Gans, the Latin Grammys, the real Grammys, Jeff that Wiggle that sleeps too darn much, the Yankees payroll, all the red states, all the blue states, every hybrid car, every talk show, everything on the planet, everything in the solar system, everything, everything, everything, everything, everything, everythingj every-everything that exists past present & future, in discovered and undiscovered dimensions! Oh, and Hugh Jackman.

    Ok, as much as I LOVE Dr. Cox and Scrubs, you can't quote Dr. Cox when he mentions his unnatural hatred for Hugh Jackman. Hugh is a babe (Go Wolverine!) and amazing and a complete god.

    That being said, I hate shoppers who line up for ages, and then when they get to the counter they spend the next 15 minutes looking for money or credit cards to pay for their stuff. You've spent the last half-hour lining up, you couldn't sort your shit out then?

    do you really know what a red state is?
    i'm just asking because i still don't understand vegemite.

  3. Any Scrubs quote is a good one, dude.

    And hell yes, those people annoy the hell out of me too. They're the ones who will bring their reciept back for the five cents you overcharged them.

    A red state is the opposite of a blue state? That's all I've got.

    And you have no idea how funny I find it that there is something about Vegemite that is not understandable.

    Ooh, ooh, *waves hand maincally in the air* I KNOW WHAT A RED STATE IS!

    It's where they're only allowed wear red clothes. It's, like, law or something.

  5. No no, I know!

    Red is Communist, right?

    In normal counries, red is Communist, yes.

    In the US, however, red means Republican states. Americas' version of Liberals. The ALPs counterpart in America, though, are the Democrats, who represent the blue states.

    No idea how that came about.

  7. It's because we're all insane.

    Republicans are Red, Democrats are Blue.

    There should be a poem there, but...enh!

    Back to the reason I was going to comment: Not Hugh Jackman! He's my sweetie. He's my If HJ ever calls, I'm outta here! card. Eric and I have a deal. Halle Berry is his card. Likelihood of turning it in? Shhhh! I don't wanna know!
