Things that make you go "hmmmm?!?"

Okay, so there are many things that make me wonder what people are thinking or things that just don't make sense. A prime example would include "just because it comes in your size, does not mean you should wear it out in public." Or worse, it doesn't come in your size so you try to squeeze into it. Another thing that I just don't get is running, for the sake of running. Running from a fire, yup I understand that. Running to get the last brownie, definitely get that. Running in a marathon, nope. Never will understand that.
And last but not least is political yard signs. Okay, as much as I hate TV commercials for politicians, this form of advertising is atleast getting a message across. And buttons that people wear, aside from them feeling like they are somehow involved with the campaign, well, perhaps that could lead to discussions out and about town that might sway an undecided voter to one candidate. But yard signs? I mean when was the last time an undecided voter was riding down the road, and happened upon a yard sign and it swayed their vote?!?
I mean, really? A yard sign? I mean, sure the homeowner is proudly displaying his affiliation with a party. But don't you think that it's a bit wasteful of our resources? Money that could be used to actually do something that one of the candidates are talking about?

Oh come on Cristy - don't you know no one actually wants to know about the ISSUES it is all about who is visible and POPULAR ie: who has the most yard signs. Obviously the one who produces the most landfill waste is the one for the job. Silly little voter - stop using your brain.
