Don't make quantum mechanics unnnecessarily weird!Quantum mechanics is not the same as classical physics. In fact it is radically different. Unfortunately, your "common sense" is really "classical sense" and your "logic" is "classical logic". What you are saying is that quantum events should behave like classical events. We know this is not true.

All quantum physics obeys classical logic. We use it to think about quantuym mechanics, to infer correctly implications of quantum mechanics, to prove theorems about it. The so-called ''quantum logic'' is completely useless for any of these tasks, except for some extremely simple experiments.
