Look, things are a little tough for all of us these days. Food prices keep skyrocketing, gas prices are still high, investments are going down, and housing prices are going up, too. We all have to tighten our belts. So if you pop in for some groceries and my card doesn’t work, please don’t yell it to the entire store.
Please don’t use the alarm that goes off when a card is declined, that just seems unnecessary. Whisper the news to me, or write it on a piece of paper and slide it across the counter. Just be chill, man.
They're the Real Heroes
What is it with phone batteries these days? After they're fully charged (which takes quite a bit of time since we're on the topic), you turn your head to look at something else for a few minutes, and the battery has already fallen to eighty percent. Most of the time, this isn't a problem – you just charge it at home.
But what if you're on a trip? On a car ride? Out at a restaurant for an entire night, for some reason? Hopefully, you have that one friend who comes prepared. How do they keep all that stuff in their bag?
We Don't Know What to Say
It seems that Dude With Sign has a friend! Good for him. Now then, about peeing in public. Some people get a little gun-shy when they know other people are around them and they're trying to do their waste-removal business. People with great moxie could use a public bathroom at work to go number two. Sometimes you just have to go.
This separation could be seen as falling down the gender divide, with guys generally having an easier time regulating fluids in public unless we're talking about, like, PUBLIC public. This is a classic example of how, men, no matter how you believe you can, there is no way you would survive alone in this world. Behind each one, there is a more funnier woman.
We Have Some Good News for You
If you're annoyed about how many ads you have to sit through when you just want to watch a video about changing a flat tire, boy, have we got some fun advice. There are things like ad blockers that you can put on your computer or even your phone, and poof! No more annoying YouTube ads.
You'll still have to sit through the ads that are part of the video itself, but those are usually a lot easier to watch. They're actually creative or funny sometimes, instead of just brands telling you how great their stuff is or how cheap your next holiday in Cairo can be.
A Piece of Classic Advice
Ah, something that has been passed down through the ages. It has never skipped a generation. Maybe you don't know, or maybe you do, but it's always a better idea to go shopping when you aren't hungry. If you're hungry, your brain will slip into a little bit of panic buying. You'll end up buying a lot more food than you need, which isn't good for either your waistline or your budget.
Try to go shopping after a meal, or at some other time when you aren't hungry. This can be difficult, but your budget – whether for calories or dollars – will thank you for life.
