I Don't Understand...

For an information age, there are times when there are things that we just don’t “get” on some level.


I Don’t Understand…


I Don't Understand...


Some things that I don’t understand include:

  • Exclusive things in supermarkets. It’s really not that exclusive. Does this stuff really make it sell?
  • Economics. Seems like a lot of theoretical gambling that we apparently base our entire financial well-being on.
  • Pokie machines. I’ve put about $3 into them ever and holy shit it’s boring.
  • Cats. They seem like bastards. Or at least every cat I’ve known has seemed like one.
  • Why the water tank on my car, made for cleaning the windshield, is always clogged and dirty.
  • Why we can’t teleport yet. I don’t like having a 15 hour/week commute.
  • Open plan offices. Yuck. Leave them to the extroverts and let introverts like me have our own caves. We need them.
  • Why people feel the need to smoke in places where people go for fresh air. IRONY.


Is there something that you don’t understand?

  1. I asked C about the windscreen wiper water. He has no idea why it would clog but suggests emptying the whole thing and refilling with either new water or the special windscreen wiper fluid you can buy!
    I’m with you on the teleporting thing too.

    1. I should do that instead of just spraying it with a hose or water bottle… ugh. Cars bore me haha. I just want them to work.

  2. Great list Vanessa, I’m constantly baffled by things. More so as I get older, for some strange reason. See? Another thing I don’t understand.

    1. Yeah, you’d think experience would make us LESS confused.

  3. Too many to list and all the things on your list too.
    Why people feel the need to smoke in places where other people are – full stop.
    Get the …. away if you want to suck on those stinky cancer sticks .

    1. Well yes, anywhere others are! It just particularly rubs on me when I go to the beach or a park for fresh air and someone lights up… just because you can’t smoke indoors doesn’t mean it’s nice outdoors.

  4. I’m with you on poker machines. I used to go out with some friends when I was younger and they would always spend time on the pokies. I’d go along too but I would seriously be dozing off within minutes – utterly boring!

      I think I liked pokie machines most when I played them when I was 7. It seemed magical then. Probably illegal. But hey…

  5. I don’t understand the draw of poker machines either. Exclusive products in supermarkets are ridiculous. Especially if they are at a supermarket that I don’t generally shop at, because if I do like the product it means I have to make a special trip.

      Maybe that’s the trick to the supermarket exclusives – get people in because the more trips, the more you spend usually.

  6. Yes – why people don’t love cats! Clearly they haven’t met mine!!!! 😉

      Haha I’m open to the concept of nice cats but I can’t say I’ve met any!

  7. Right now I don’t understand how it must be so hard to change a freaking toilet roll!!! I seem to be the only one in this household who can perform such a difficult task!!!

      Mine seem to be left with one sheet on them…which is as pointless as not changing them!
