Things I just don’t understand!

The Way I See it

I know the title might be misconstrued as an admittance of ignorance or a disappointment to many of you that I, your humble correspondent, does not, in fact, understand everything but it's true. There are a few things in this vast universe that seem to confuse me to the point that I just admit, "I don't understand....." Here are just a few...

How the cars actually work? In fact, I don't understand how computers, cell phones, the Internet, television and a myriad other things work. Is it possible for me to get a computer virus?

Modern Art or Pop Art or whatever the heck it's called. Just looks weird to me.

Absolutely don't understand Obamacare. No judgement here, just don't understand it at all.

Taxes!!! Not only don't I understand them, I don't really like them and I think we're taxed too much also.

What's the difference between Great Britain and The United Kingdom? This keeps me up at night sometimes.

Now think about this one; why in the world do they need an interstate highway in Hawaii? Hmmmm.

* And along those lines, just what was the best BEFORE sliced bread?

I was coloring with my grand daughter a while back and wondered why one would need a "white crayon?"

Here's a few things "us guys" don't understand about "you women."

What is your big thing about shoes? How many pair do you actually need????

Why don't you ever have anything to wear? Your closet looks pretty full to me!!!

And finally, how do you put up with "us men?"

To be fair, I asked around about what women don't understand about "us men."

Why the "comb over?" Good question!! Looks silly, doesn't it??

Why do guys absolutely refuse to stop and ask for directions? DNA, baby, DNA!!

And why do guys have such poor aim at the toilet? Hmmmm, have no idea there.

One woman asked me, "John, why are guys so proud of their gas?" She didn't actually use the word, Gas.

As you can clearly see, there are a few things that keep me tossing and turning at night. So tell me, what are some things that YOU don't understand? Let me know at or call me at 319.327.4640. Have a great week.
