I hope the Mets clinch the National League East pennant today, but will they?
When the Pope said mass before 20 thousand people at Madison Square Garden, how many ushers did they need to pass the collection plates?
Why do I have to tap my cell phone three times to turn it off? If I could turn it off by mistake with only one tap, I’d need just a second tap, not a third, to turn it back on.
Why does fixing the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on my Nissan Frontier cost so much more than it would cost to buy a tire gauge? And, don’t I need the gauge anyway to see if the TPMS is broken or if my tires really are low on air?
Text messaging costs the telephone company almost nothing to provide. Yet, the phone company charges for it and doesn’t charge for it the way any other company charges for its merchandise and/or services. The phone company the person who receives the messages, not the person who sends them. If I had to pay to send text messages, it wouldn’t bother me: paying to receive them does. As far as I know, this is the only instance in the world where someone who didn’t order something from a private business has to pay for it. What makes the phone company so special in that regard?
