When I was a youngster...

When I was a youngster I had some rather different views on certain things.....whether I had a hearing problem, a comprehension problem, or was just a wierd kid, I have no idea...but anyway, here are some examples of some of the things that went through my twisted little adolescent mind back when I was one...

1.Exersize: Something you do to get rid of "Extra size"
2. When refering to someone deceased as "The late so and so": Well sure he's gonna be late, he's dead!
3."Handicap": Those plastic caps we used to put on unfinished pop bottles..dang those little caps were handy!
4.When boy asks a girl to "go steady"....he want's her to help him "steady" for a test?
5. I had a recording of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn when I was a kid...when the bad guy in the court room got away, they cried "LOOK!! He's trying to escape!!" Then we heard the sound of a window breaking. I thought "Wow, he really shouldn't be trying to skate if he's that uncoordinated!"
6.How can those little green blinky lights on the dash tell the car behind us which way we're going to turn?
7."When we go in the store don't walk behind the counters".......(Which people are the ones counting stuff and why don't they want me walking behind them?)
8.When the sign on the restroom door says "Men", men can go in....but "Women" means "Whoa men!"
9."He lost his driver's license"....(Well gee, that's no big deal, he should be able to find it somewhere if he looks hard enough!)
10.Why do they call graduation "commencement"? Looks like school just got over, not just commenced!

So it's no wonder I turned out a little different!!

"NG, still trying to convince the world that I'm not strange, just a little "Unique"

Hey NewGen,

Here's few that I don't get....

"Go cut on the radio" If you cut something, doesn't is come off??? (SC thing)

"Mrs. Jones passed away?"

The hospital version, "I'm sorry Mrs. Jones Expired." I never saw that stamped on her ANYWHERE.....any where exactly is MY expiration date..I want to know.

"I'm fixin' to do..." I didn't know it was broken.

Another Dr. statement....."I'm sorry,Mr.Brown, Mrs. Brown had lost the baby..." I hate this one...personal experience. You feel so bad as it is and then they make it sound like it's Mom's fault. Getting off the soapbox now...

and my favorite being a transplant to SC....."Go over yonder...." Where exactly IS yonder! It could be anywhere and how do you know when you get there? Dear hubby and I have discussions on this topic no and again.

From one Unique person to another :0) Thanks for the thought provoking statements.
