Things I Wonder About....

I don't know about you, but there are many things that occur on a daily basis that I wonder about...

  1. Why does an accident stay on a driver's record forever and affect how much interest he or she pays? I drive in Las Vegas where drivers are so reckless that I see an average of one bad accident a day. No matter how carefully you drive, some nut will make a left turn from a no-turn lane or come across three lanes to make a turn and almost hit your car. 
  2. Why do phone calls to utilities for clarification on your bill leave you scratching your head as they explain how your bill got so high?
  3. Why do companies waste our time with automated questions that have nothing to do with what you want an answer to. After suffering through "Please press #1 (2, 3, 4,5) or 9 to return to the main menu," you finally get the option to speak with live person. (Who often sounds robotic.)
  4. Why do good workers rarely get praises or raises; while, less productive workers hang on for years.
  5. How did we come to the place in American politics that a buffoon like Donald Trump actually has a shot at getting into the Oval Office?
  6. Why do banks get rich charging $39.00 when you access your overdraft line? Wealthy patrons (who can afford the fees) never have to pay them, only someone who has the misfortune of having less money than needed to cover expenses and bills.
  7. Why do we pay hundreds of dollars for satellite or cable services that feature decades old movies (Hint: "The Shawshank Redemption"); or pay $4 or $5 for current films; or feature those annoying infomercials that most of us never watch?
  8. Why do we have to register a car every year? Why not every 5 years? This is just one of many fees designed solely to increase government revenue.
  9. How did the credit reporting companies--Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax--get so much power over our lives? If you try to get a home, car, or credit card, your credit score can make or break you. Once again, only those who utilize credit cards because of limited funds and get in over their heads, pay higher interest and/or late fees if they miss a payment.
  10. Why do we give celebrities and public figures gifts or flowers but resent when a homeless person asks a dollar?
