1. Because often people arrive at the beach when it's high tide when they should arrive later in the day, but to beat traffic, everyone leaves a little too early.

2. Because clothes are not stationary, the move which allows space for sand to enter the suit.

3. Because another driver has moved during the time it took you to find a spot.

4. You don't notice the other tools missing because you don't need them at the time.

5. People distract other people, making it harder to focus on the task at hand. Times flies when you're having fun.

6. No one enjoys going to the dentist, nerves build up and the body focuses on that instead of the tooth.

7. You listen to him/her and are focused so intently on their words you simply forget to pay attention to your own.

8. When you're not late you don't notice the hang-ups.

9. You get jittery which can make people forget things like keys.

10. Songs have a tune. Try singing your day in your head to a familar tune and your memory may improve.

11. You do spill on jeans and such, but the color hides it and goes unnoticed.

12. You pay too much attention to it so you notice the "flaws" that made it perfect just the day before.

13. Noise and sounds tend to relax many people because silence can be unnerving.

14. Because they weren't important enough to you at the time to take them along.

15. He/She has many patients to attend to. It only seems late because there is nothing to do to entertain yourself while you're there.

16. Because you didn't notice it was low the morning before.

17. Because the last person didn't refill it.

18. Maybe they like the show?

19. Because the producers didn't like the ratings and because they have no taste (ha).

20. That one hasn't happened to me yet.

21. Because technology hates people.

22. Printers use too much ink at once so we never know exactly when it's going to run out, though printing would have to happen to have to refill it.

23. How do you not notice it?

24. Because it's pretty when it has color.

25. That's why I always take out al the ingredients before baking.

26. Because dish soap is too expensive to stock up on.

27. Too old?

28. N/A

29. Big barbeque...

30. Because they thrive off choking flowers.

31. Look up before watering.

32. So you can make snow angels have a snowball fight with forts. :)

33. Because we make them look so good.

really true, most of these happening with me specially the fact that I only remember the questions I wanted to ask anyone after I leave them, surely it take you a good amount of time to have this list, so thanks for your time and effort, voted up.
