“Thank you” is two words, and you have to think that it wouldn’t be that hard to say them, but here we are, holding a sign in solidarity with the Dude. Sure, being open in that way isn’t always the easiest thing for some people to do, and there are a lot of times when it just slips your mind because you’re worried about car repairs or your sick kid or something like that, but let’s all try a little harder.
We can start small – give that friendly person a nod if they’re holding a door for you. Ignore the awkward feeling – that’s just your self-importance talking.
Just Throw Them Away!
The garbage can is right there! You're just creating more work for yourself in the future. Yes, maybe you can sometimes get a little bit out of the jar of jam or whatever is hiding in the back of the fridge, but most of the time, it's more trouble than it's worth. Rinse them out, replace the cap, and put them in the garbage or recycle them.
Your fridge will have more space for actual food, it will probably smell a little nicer, and you'll feel better about your cleanliness. Here's the rule – if you have to scrape around the edges to get any little morsel, get rid of it once you're done.
It's Hard, and Nobody Likes It
This protest sign comes from the fact that we sometimes can't escape limitations. You can't include a keyboard with a TV. There are plenty of ways to hook them up, but so many programs like streaming services or browsers require you to use your remote to slowly navigate around a digital keyboard like you're back in middle school, learning how to type with your pointed index fingers.
None of us like to do this, but for many people, there aren't any other options. There are sometimes voice commands, but those are hit or miss. Bring back the keyboards, and bring it back now.
Some People Like to Sleep Late
There are lots of people who sleep in hotels because they have to sleep somewhere before getting back on the road or on their next plane. There are also some people who sleep in hotels because they're on vacation with their kids, and that can cause problems when it comes to getting out of the hotel by a certain time.
Some places even say that you have to be out by eleven or ten in the morning! If you have a bunch of little ones, this becomes nigh-impossible. Then there are the people that need a little more shuteye to get ready for the next day.
Start Blaming the Movies
Whether you're a grandmother nestled among grandchildren or a busy working stiff who just wants to relax, a movie is a great time to catch a nap. We recommend “The Tree of Life.” Much better than watching it, trust us. Just let people get some much-needed rest during their time away from the rest of the world.
As long as they aren't snoring, drooling, pushing or sleepwalking, they aren't hurting anybody. Maybe movies need to be a little better at getting people invested instead of just filling the screen with pretty visuals and flashes of color. How about that, huh?
