ranting & raving about stuff that gets me on my high horse or rips my nightie with more than a question or two thrown in because I don't understand the world around me

Cultural differences appear like nonsense when in most cases societies operate very effectively despite this perceived nonsense.

I'm surprised by people who speak with such authority when obviously not knowing what they're speaking of.

Why do we do quickly and completely accept the way things are?

Do we fail to think about the future and possible consequences of our actions, or is it that we actually live in the moment embracing life?

Cases spoil phones but they're too fragile to live normal life without one 😔

When I'm out and about or waiting somewhere I challenge myself to leave my phone in my pocket so my mind wanders. Seems I'm alone in this apart from old people and toddlers!!

Instagram just shows me places I want to go and things I'd rather be doing. Does that mean I'm following the right people?

Why do we assume people who work in IT know about all things IT? We don't presume a Doctor can do operations, or knows everything about the human body. Similarly we know that a university professor usually has a narrow focus of expertise in any given subject. Perhaps it reveals our own limited awareness of the enormity of the area.

I don't like it when people email me their list of things to talk to me about! Why can't they make a to do list then refer to it during the conversation?
