Did you ever notice

    Did you ever notice...

    that it always seems to rain on the night you put your trash or recyclables out? I always feel sorry for the people that have to collect them.

    Anyone else have any not-so-scientific observations?

    when you say something like "it's BOUND to rain today" it doesnt. It just looks overcast and threatens to rain..

    OR you think "ooh, its sunny this morning, i wont need my raincoat", then as soon as you go out, it pisses down ALL day... bloody England.

    When you decide to drive at night in a see-thru nightgown, you will get in a wreck. Not me...my girlfriend. I only wear non see-thru nightgowns when I drive. :biggrin:

    When you know an important parcel/person is going to be at your house in the morning, and you wait for ages for it, and then when you take a shower, the postie/person rings the bell. The amount of times i have scared the postman by answering the door dripping wet with a towel round my waist....

    First of all, I hope she wasn't seriously injured. Second, did she have a coat or anything to cover up with? :eek: Details, we need details! :eek: :biggrin:

    Did you ever notice that someone will start an interesting story and then leave you hanging for the details!! :biggrin:

    No injuries, it was pouring down rain and she skidded into a ditch. Nothing to cover up with, I don't think it was extremely see through, but bad enough.

    Ever since that happened to her, I make sure that I am always dressed for a public audience when I get into the car.

    if it were white then....

    When you need something the most it is never there...

    I also have a problem that i look at my watch at exactly the same time every day...11:11 am... it freaks me out so much.

    Ah, jimmy p, that can be easily explained by a phenomenon originating from your circadian clock.

    My locker never opens when I'm in a bad mood.
    When I think a day is going to be boring, it turns out to be good.
    If I think a day is gonna be bad, its good (or rarely, its bad) and vice versa
    When I think I'm going to be late for P.E., I'm always really early.

    Like Newton said : for every reaction, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    They say it was just such an incident that cured J. Edgar Hoover of the see-thru nightgown habit.
