Senseless Actions Of The Previous And Current Society

548 words - 2 pages

Hello everybody. Today I hope to shed some light on some facts about life that go unnoticed in our everyday activities. Things that we do almost everyday, but we don’t know whether they make sense or not. My topic is on the senseless actions of the previous and current society.Let me analyse this fact now. First of all, I don't understand the whole concept of why would someone want somebody else's name printed on their undergarments? People competing with each other, displaying the names of their boxers. That makes no sense at all. Like Bossini and Calvin Klein, why do people have to be so boastful? Just because a nice name is printed on their undergarments, example, "Hey, mine are Bossini", and the other person says "So what, Calvin Klein are mine". Have they even met these people? Of course not. Then why be so proud? Well, let's move on to the next topic.Let's get one thing straight about dry cleaning right now. It doesn't exist. There's no such thing as dry cleaning. There's no way of cleaning with dry. Dry itself is nothing. You can't use it. You can't do anything with it. It's not there. Dry is nothing. We walk into these places with the big signs out front, "Dry Cleaning," and somehow no one ever questions how they were able to put this senseless concept over on us. In actuality, the clothes are cleaned by special solvents yet they’re called dry cleaning which sounds as if they’re actually cleaned with dry, which is impossible.I don't know about you, but I'm getting sick of pretending to be excited...
