Why ?

#1 Post by Pete44ru » Fri Jul 13, 2018 8:59 pm

.

Why do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front ?

Why do people order double cheeseburgers, & large fries, but a diet coke ?

Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters ?

Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage ?

Why are we sold hot dogs in packages of ten and hot dog buns in packages of eight ?

Why are there drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering ?

Why the sun lightens hair, but darkens skin ?

Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed ?

Why don't Psychics win the lottery '?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word ?

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice' ?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons ?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker ?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour ?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food ?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes ?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections ?

In a Drugstore, we are trying to cause impulse buying as the costomer comes back to the Pharmacy, and then goes back out. The cigarettes are located near the front door because there is always a cashier there to watch out for shoplifting on the tobacco products. If someone has a difficulty walking, we do have a drive-thru on most stores.

The skin is living, and the harmful UV rays cause melanin production to increase in an attempt to minimize the damage. Hair is not alive once it is out of the root. The lightening effect is just visible breakdown.

My why ? is no where as humorous as the above ones but how about the english language spelling - pronunciations anomalies ?

I know it has something to do with the post norman conquest era contributions to the language but why are similarly spelled words pronounced differently?

tough and rough but then there is dough......

laughter and slaughter and daughter are all said subtly different....

leave it to the frenchers to mess-up every thing they influence....them goomers can't even use a consonant properly but pronounce them like vowels !
m.A.g.a. !

It’s amazing how garages have changed over the last 30 years. From parking cars inside to a storage container of junk that is never used. Todd3/leg

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice' ?

Lowered expectations? Sorry AJMD.

You must be channeling George Carlin. "Why do we drive on a parkway but park on a driveway?" Those sound like him.

Priorities

Why do people order double cheeseburgers, & large fries, but a diet coke ? Avoiding sugar... not carbohydrates

Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters ? If you watch the pennies, the dollars take care of themselves

Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage ? why make it easier for the criminally inclined to steal our useless junk

Why are we sold hot dogs in packages of ten and hot dog buns in packages of eight ? ... here in TX we have 16 pack of hot dogs

Why are there drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering ? never heard of passengers?

Why the sun lightens hair, but darkens skin ? The dead vs. living...

Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed ? Because they're talking to themselves...

Why don't Psychics win the lottery '? The lottery is a random event...

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word ?really? It's abbr.

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice' ? Because with "practice" comes "perfect"

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons ? Stop buying to cheap brands

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker ? because he'll make you that... broker

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour ? 'cause everyone is rushing there

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food ? political correctness

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes ? Oh... he tried and tried!

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections ? Habit.
