Useless things...

As I was walking in the rain from the bus to my office this morning, I passed a guy on the plaza with a gas powered leaf blower happily blowing crap around. It dawned on me that leaf blowers are a useless invention. What is the point of simply blowing crap from one spot to another (unless it is into your neighbor's yard)?

Life seems full of useless things:
  1. Making the bed.
  2. Fuzzy toilet seat covers. They prevent the lid from staying up at crucial moments.
  3. Wasps (the insects, not the White Anglo Saxton Protestants...though they could be on the list). They sting, bite and don't seem to contribute much to the environment (ironically like the White Anglo Saxton Protestants).
  4. Plumbers (all repair people for that matter). They get paid obscene amounts of money to turn minor repairs into major projects.
  5. Silent letters like the "b" in plumbers.
  6. Greeters at WalMart.
  7. Greeting cards. Come on. Do you really think it says how much you care to send someone a piece of cardboard with a verse written by a total stranger?
  8. E-Cards. They show that you are too cheap to even buy the piece of cardboard with a verse written by a total stranger.
  9. Vice Presidents.
  10. Spam. How many zero down mortgages can one person have?
  11. Personal Diary blogs. No one cares.
  12. Pierced noses (especially on fast food employees).
  13. Car air freshners shaped like pine trees.
  14. Semi colons.
  15. Many of my co-workers.
  16. Lists about useless things.
Funny how life works.
