Why don't they....

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My niece came up with a good thought last night (well, it was a question really) she said...

They make "Thank You" cards, so why don't they also make"You're Welcome" cards! I told her she may be on to something there, have to call Hallmark and pitch the idea!

So does anyone have any "Why don't they's" to add?

I'm only guessing they don't make "You're Welcome" cards because it may sound a bit haughty. "Just a reminder, you are so welcome for all of the work I did for you." LOL, I'd crack up if someone sent a card like that!

I've wondered that before also, Diane! I guess it's just sort of ingrained in many of us, isn't it? When someone says thank you, you're just supposed to say You're Welcome!
Especially since I had LASIK, bright lights really bother my eyes at night, and I often am bothered by glares from lights while driving, so it's really bothersome when the car coming towards me keeps their brights on. I've thought it would be nice to have a little light of some sort on your car as a signal to thank someone when they dim their lights for you.On the same line, I thought it would be nice to have some sort of thank you signal on your car to use in addition to waving and smiling when someone let's you in front of them, as in when you're waiting to turn or merge into traffic.

Ah, the pains of Lasik. The joys of having 20/20 vision, yet, the pains of bright lights making you freaking blind.

My eyes are also more sensitive... snow gets in them and they water like mad, if someone sprays something around me like perfume or something, they water. Ick!

But I can see.

A "Thank You" blinker on a car would be a fine idea; but then you'd have to have a "___ You" (insert your own insult) to suit when things don't go so great. A Road Rage signal to warn everyone that you're sick of their stupid driving would be a great one.

Yes, a "Thank You" blinker would be great (not that I'd need it here in Savannah ). We DO have a Road Rage signal- it's called the horn Hehe.

20/15 here! Oh, so worth every penny and any eye sensitivity!

I've wondered about welcome cards before too, but it won't hurt my feelings if they never invent any. Can you imagine all the cards you'd have to buy? One big "Why don't they" for me is sliding doors. I wish all the doors in my house (that have the wall room for it of course) were sliding doors. If you're ever moving something into or out of a house you always have all these stupid doors and their hinges in the way banging and skinning your knuckles. Then there's rooms like my spare room where there heat vent comes out of the baseboard right behind the door when it's open because the door rests on the wall, but if I use a stopper half way, the door is in the way of my exercise equipment.

Why don't they outfit all new cars with breathalyzers? You have to be able to pass the breathalyzer before the car would even turn on. That could save a lot of us on the roads from drunk drivers!

Ok, why don't they let you pick and choose the channels you want to get on cable? I wouldn't mind paying the money if the channels were actually ones I might ever tune in even once in my lifetime.

Aaaaargh! I, too, have always wondered why they don't offer a "per channel" rate. I don't have TV at all, because why should I pay 40 to 50 bucks for what is mostly garbage? I would probably only want a few channels at most (A&E, TLC and/or Discovery, Cartoon Network ).

I mentioned this before in a different post. Why aren't houses built with a little alcove for the litter box? So many households have cats, and you could always use it for something else if you don't have one. It's hard to find a good spot for it!

You're lovely Stephanie. I have also had the same thoughts about signs in my car whilst driving but they were never for thanking people - usually more like `Get off my butt would you and go the speed limit' or `Thanks so much for letting me in when I've been indicating for ten hours you arrogant *&%$#@!' or - especially this one the other day, `THIS IS A ONE-WAY STREET, BUDDY!!!'

They have that device in cars that tracks your car if it is stolen, why not one for pets and for people with dementia?

This is a great topic! During Christmas, Adrian and I were in CVS looking for a Christmas cards for my mother and my father... They were all mushy and lovey... and this was right after my father had kicked me out of the house and my mother was being a royal pain... I was standing there looking through cards and I got so frustrated because I didnt like any of the cards so I said "Why don't they make cards that say "Merry Christmas to the Father that kicked me out of his house 3 weeks before Christmas because he's a prejudice jerk!" and "Merry Christmas to my Mother who is too medicated to know what she's talking about at any given moment!" LoL Oh well... I dont know how well those cards will go over...
