Things I don't Get Part 7


      There's not much to say here - it's the 7th post of the Things I Don't Get series and even if this is your first time here, the title itself is self-explanatory. So after the 5th and 6th post, here's the 7th list of things I don't get.
  1. Why do they even make cars without rear window wipers?
  2. Why do people, when looking for a parking spot, always pass at least 3 decent (if not great) spots, before they finally figure out they should've parked in the first spot they saw?
  3. Why do they even make phones and other devices with that stupid function that automatically turns images and videos, that's beyond annoying. Aside from Angry Birds that has to be the least useful phone feature ever (I'd say Talking Tom Cat instead of Angry Birds but supposedly a Slovenian dude came up with Talking Tom Cat and I can't badmouth one of my own.)
  4. Why do we need so many social networks? Linkdl, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Google+, etc. You can have a profile on every single one of these SOCIAL networks and it doesn't make you any more SOCIAL. Chances are, you'll be a lot less social, updating your profiles all the time and checking up on them while out with your friends (if you have any (left)).
  5. Why do people go for a run when it's already dark and then they run on the road so nobody can see them but everybody can run them over? If you're running for your health, consider the fact that getting hit by a car isn't that healthy.
  6. How do you know that gorgonzola or any other blue (stinky) cheese has gone bad? When it gets moldy? It's got mold from the get-go. When it starts to stink? It doesn't smell very nice in the first place. What's the deciding factor when it comes to determining the final destination of a slice of blue cheese - your mouth or your garbage can?
  7. 3/4 length sleeve winter coats. Why would you buy something to keep you warm when it's snowing outside but then you choose something that's missing 2 of the 3 most important coat components: a left sleeve, a right sleeve and the stuff that's in-between. Next time just buy a hat, it's cheaper.
  8. Not to be sexist but male selfies. I don't get them. Those just creep me out.
  9. People having famous persons for their avatars. Are you a fan or are you shy? Are you a boy or are you a girl? Or do you think nobody knows Rihanna or Penelope Cruz? What's the deal here?
  10. Why does Gmail have to change ALL THE TIME? Why? WHY?! I get used to one interface then everything changes and I get lost in my own fucking inbox. Why are there three tabs in the frigging inbox?! Why?! WHYWHYWHYWHYWHY?!?!?!?!?! And there should be an option to decline these stupid changes, but there isn't. The concept of freedom is dead at Google apparently.

  3. I love your pictures, they're really cool. #7 and 10 are so true. 3/4 winter coats are so pretty, but when does fashion expect me to wear them? Oh right, while sledding, sorry. :)

  4. OMG the coat thing! Yes I don't bloody get that? What is the point? I may or may not own one or two mind you but i can NEVER wear them! It's too cold or too warm for it and it doesn't even snow where I live so I can't even imagine the point for you guys! Social media, too much too keep up with! And Google changes things too often! I can't keep up, or maybe I'm getting old, I don't know! Ahhhhhhhhh!

  5. I never understand #2, I've been in the car with people and see different spots but it's like they're waiting on the perfect one...when they probably just passed it, by the way I love these photos

  6. I completely agree with the Gmail thing! Oh my goodness I just don't understand. Three tabs? Why do I need three tabs? I have folders for that nonsense. I can organize my own emails thank you very much.

    1. Ha, I've found out (thanks Sara!!!!;)) that you can remove those stupid tabs! You just go under Settings - Inbox - Categories and you un-tick Social and Promotions and click Save at the bottom and you have your old Inbox again. Hooray for that!!!

  7. Well, first of all I'd like to get WHY ON EARTH you have such a perfect body and mine sucks ? I mean, I've been a good girl, I'm starting to really doubt that it is leading me anywhere...
    Second, oh well my personal FB page has a "desperate housewives" picture. Not because I'm a fan and not because I'm shy, but just because I m as clumsy as Susan so my friends laugh at me and say "ohhhh Susie". (it's basically a polite way to tell me "How the f*** did you fall/break this/said this out loud etc.)

  8. Haha, oh man, I hate when my e-mail gets changed around! Yahoo recently went through a change and I hate it!
    Anyway, love these trippy photos, you look gorgeous as always. That striped top is perfect

  10. Make selfies are super creepy. And there are way too many social networks. I'm on four, and I hate them all.

  11. My boyfriend does number 3 and 5. Much to my dismay, lol. And good question with number 6! How DO you tell?

  12. I agree with the windshield wipers. For heaven sakes we are much smarter now, safety should be a priority.

  13. I think the same about gmail! GRGRG!

  14. So true! I just wasted time AGAIN undoing the undesirable changes that Google did to my YouTube (Mister Panty Buns's Channel) by forcing me to choose options I didn't want if I wanted to comment. Now I can't comment there or even "like" other comments because I disconnected the mess the changes resulted in and had to waste time putting my name back up. The new Google version of YouTube would make Mark Twain choose between marktwain and Samuel Clemens, or make Silence Dogood choose between Benjamin Franklin and silencedogood - and forget about titles, prefixes, more than one middle name and suffixes. I HATE Facebook and it looks like it's headed that way. Maybe the people who try to force these changes on us should go running in the dark near cars driven by men taking selfies. I agree about the celebrity avatars too. About the bleu cheese: I seem to recall a Peter Sellers movie wherein someone was rendered unconscious from the smell of bleu cheese. Sorry I've been missing in action lately. Your posts have been great and you look fabulous in all your photos!

  16. Firstly, THAT DONK. Your butt looks fantastic and I don't care who knows it. And two, I agree with ALL OF THESE THINGS. Especially the blue cheese point. I don't even like blue cheese, and your exact point would be why.

    Also, I want to mention that I got your email and I'll be getting you that banner ASAP!

    1. You know what... There's a reason people take 5 thousand pictures and then choose only 3.:) Of course you're gonna choose the best looking ones which aren't necessarily true to life.:D At least that's my opinion...

  17. Absolutly nice question....some of them are rhetorical. Any way i like your blog and all your post are interesting.... these foto are magic)

  18. About number 7. I might have a slightly different view because I am everything but practical. That's right. I was actually searching for a coat with short sleeves because I so wanted to show off long leather gloves. I literally had a fixation on that!

    But also - how does one know when blue cheese goes bad??? Does it start smelling like flowers instead? haha :)

    1. Ok, that look with the 3/4 sleeves and long leather gloves is very sleek, I like seeing that... But for me personally, that's not entirely practical.:)

  19. Hi Peet, you always say the things I am thinking. Okay, I have to admit that I am one of those people who drive around the parking lot five times hoping to find an empty space closest to the entrance. What I also really dont get is how some people are registered on every single social network invented since the invention of the internet....do these people have lives...or day jobs?? I had one very terribly cheesy experience with gorgonzola, never again, I still have nightmares about the smell. I think that people jog at night because they don't want anyone to see them in Lycra tights. Awesome post and pics as always babe!

  20. I'm not gay, I don't think I am, no I'm not, but I must say your photography gets sexier and sexier.

    1. That is so annoying isn't it, mine doesn't and after moaning to my male cousin he said it was because it was a convertible, so I accepted it and just have to get out of the car to wipe the back screen, which is a ballache

    2. I do this because I am driving too fast, so I simply just miss it although sometimes I reverse much to other driver's dismay!

    4. I kinda get why there are so many social networks, what I don't get is why I try to be part of so many

    7. Ooops guilty and I wear knee length boots with no tights and polo necks with no sleeves and sandals with thick coats eeek

    8. Agree!!

    9. hmmm interesting, don't really have an opinions on that one, but I guess they are trying to either hide or show some sort of personality?

  21. Love the pics. Judging by what annoys you I think you may have been more comfy in a different era :P Ah phone obsessions

  24. 3/4 length sleeve winter coats , I know right ? ! WHY THEY EXIST ? XDD

    ReplyDelete
  25. 1. so true! but many people just don't use the rear glass nor the rear-view mirror. I don't get it and I find it dangerous to not use those two. when it comes to traffic Estonians are quite crazy.. young dudes get themselves BMWs and then get themselves killed in those BMWs. for example yesterday 4 people died in ONE BMW. enough said I think.
    7. haha, so true again! I just don't get it why the heck should I buy a winter coat that has ridiculously short sleeves? especially here where I live because our winters are at least 8 months long and what should I do with a tee-like coat here in the middle of thick snow and -30 degrees C?
    9. yeah, I often smile ironically when I see those models, Rihanna, some random babes from the web and know who that person actually is. what's wrong with their own photos? I think it's just ridiculous and kind of lame.
    btw, did you know that "peet" means beetroot in Estonian? ;)

  27. All is absolutely true!!
    Looking for a good parking makes me crazy too. And this thing about blue cheese... I never thought about it but now I have fear for my life every time I open the fridge and see it there ... blue and moldy ...
    But i had already thought about 3/4 coats. It's soooo stupid... Like mittens without fingers!
