Points to Ponder

In my other life I work in HR. I follow a lot of HR blogs at work. Punk Rock HR is one of my favourites. On Monday she wrote a great post that I thought you would also enjoy. I believe that the original can be found at Enjoy!
  • I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
  • Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.
  • I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.
  • There is great need for a sarcasm font.
  • How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
  • Was learning cursive really necessary?
  • Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
  • Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
  • I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.
  • Bad decisions make good stories.
  • You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
  • Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.
  • I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
  • “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this — ever.
  • I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What’d you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?
  • I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
  • I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call…
  • My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day “Dad/Mom what would happen if you ran over a ninja?” How the do I respond to that?
  • I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
  • I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.
What else?

Hilarious! My fav: I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

Seriously, when this happens I wish I could re-wear the outfit again that same week!

Thanks for sharing, great laugh for the day.

I'd add to this list:

Anything written in Comic Sans doesn't deserve to be read.

If I want to wear tights the first three pairs I try on will have ladders in them, I'll curse myself for not throwing them out before and then bung them straight back in the drawer

If you follow a complicated recipe and it works perfectly first time, you can guarantee it will never taste that good ever again. (Especially if the next time you have people round).
