The one that makes me cringe every time I hear it is when people say Valentimes Day. It’s ValentiNes Day. How do you not know that?

Well, this is embarassing. About 4 years ago for some reason the topic of the space station came up, and somehow the conversation lead to me being asked where I thought it was, and for some reason I always thought the space station was ground control so I didn’t know it was in space. Fiance still won’t let it go…. Whenever something like that comes up where he makes a silly mistake he’ll say “Oh, and where’s the space station again?” hahaha

I’m consistently surprised that people don’t seem to know that turn signal use is a good idea.  Apparently, neither is checking a blind spot/looking where you’re going.

She wasn’t a complete adult but still like a “REALLY??” moment. I was at work and a woman was there with her kids, one of which was 16, and asked the teen to get her a nickel so she could pay us the change part. The girl, and I kid you not, didn’t know what a nickel looked like! She gave her mom a quarter. Shouldn’t it be common knowledge by that point what change looks like?

At a party at my sister’s, some friends of hers brought their kids, and they had some superhero toys.  One of them gives Batman to my sister to play with.  She goes “Oh, it’s Batman!  He can drive the Batmobile, and he can catch bad guys.  What else can Batman do?  Batman can fly!” And she starts flying Batman through the air.  Every man in the room turned around, paused a second to see if someone else would do it for him, and we all said in amazement, and in unison, “Batman can’t fly!”
