Sock Balls and Other Stuff

Most people may make a list of resolutions—that’s boring, and in most cases, useless. This is a list of things I’ll never understand. Maybe you can relate. If so, leave some feedback—it’s free.

The “Just Why?” List

Sock balls.

Floating soap. Ewww and why?

Empty toilet rolls. Apparently, nobody wants to risk it.

Tags in a tagless society. These jeans practically had a book inside. By this point, just include an instruction manual.

Hard to read or non-existent expire dates on food. If I can’t read it, I don’t buy it. Here’s a hint for marketing departments:

  • Black on blue or red is hard to read.
  • Imprinted dates on foil get crushed and ruined.
  • Dates stamped on plastic bottles smear.
  • Stamping dates in black ink over black writing is ridiculous.

RETHINK YOUR PACKAGING. Please and thank you.

Dog owners who don’t pick up dog poop when they walk their dogs. I’ve observed people walk away after watching their dog dump at the park. This is not acceptable. Your dog is embarrassed for you. Some bags are free and even give instructions on how to use it. You can argue that nobody picks up after the geese and coyotes at the park—or bears in a forest—or lions in Africa. Don’t be ridiculous. Your dog, your responsibility.

None of this takes rocket science, just common sense. If I did have a New Year’s resolution, the top of the list would probably be to help people get a little more common sense in 2020.
