10 People We Can't Just Can't Understand

I Can Get Along With You But It Doesn't Mean I Understand You

I can get along with almost everyone. I’m pretty easy-going like that.

But.

(There’s always a but, isn’t there?)

But there are certain types of people I just don’t understand.

It doesn’t mean I can’t get along with you. It just means that much like calculus, I just don’t understand you.

You know who I don’t understand? Well, truth be told, lots of people. But I’ll stick to the ten to come to my mind first. So here goes, in no particular order:

  1. People who don’t like reality television. My husband falls into this category. How can you not like reality television? It captures the best of the worst things ever. It’s like a train wreck I can’t turn away from.
  2. People who like to run. Outside. In winter. You’re just wacky. I can’t try to understand wacky.
  3. People who hate dogs. This is just so wrong. It’s almost as bad as not liking babies. Is that even a thing? Is there anyone who doesn’t like babies?
  4. People who put their socks on first. Weird. Socks are so inconsequential. They’re like the afterthought of dressing.  I’d think you’d just naturally start with the more important pieces first.
  5. People who don’t drink coffee. How do you wake up? How do you deal with Mondays?
  6. People who don’t eat dessert. It just can’t be true. It’s an enigma, isn’t it?
  7. People who don’t flush the toilet in public bathrooms. Do you not flush at home either? For the record, you’re pretty disgusting. Matter of fact, I have no desire to understand you.
  8. People who like winter. In all honesty, I begrudgingly respect you. You’re probably a skier, or a hockey player, or a figure skater, or something else equally fantastic. So yeah, I respect you, but I don’t understand you.
  9. People who don’t like their parents. WTF. They gave you life. The very least you could do is like them for that. Unless they were abusive, then please hate on.
  10. People who listen to classical music in the car. Are you just doing it to appear worldly? You’re just messing with us, right? How can that be any fun to drive to? Try old school Madonna for once. I swear, you’ll never go back.

There it is - the ten types of people I just don’t understand.

Now it’s your turn. Who is it that confuses the *@#& out of you? Please share! And the more random, the better!
