Why Do We Say and Do Things That Don't Make Sense

Updated on June 19, 2013

Why Do We Do and Say Certain Things?

Have you ever wondered why some things are the way they are? Maybe it's something we say on an everyday basis, but if we analyzed it, would realize that it doesn't make sense. Or maybe it's something we do which makes sense at the time, but after we give it some thought, it causes us to wonder why we did it in the first place. In reality sometimes what we say and do is nonsensical nonsense. So, what I am going to attempt to do here, is to bring to light all the crazy things we say and do. Hopefully this will make you scratch your head in wonder and possibly even give you a laugh or two.

Disclaimer

Some of the things I will be sharing do have a meaning behind them. They are just expressions that don't quite make sense if you think about it at first. These sayings and things we do in life that will be mentioned here are not for your personal critique but are rather for your enjoyment.

"Makes No Sense At All"

Things We Say


Jump in my car... You know the common everyday scenario. Hey I am just gonna jump in my car and meet you in a bit. How many of you actually jump into your car? If you do, that is pretty sweet; I wish you could teach me your ways.


I couldn't care less... This one is probably the most often used saying that does not make sense. For example, I could care less if you ate my sandwich. This implies that you do care to some extreme. The real saying should be I couldn't care less.


Same difference... How can something be the same and different? Is that not an oxymoron?


Selling like hotcakes... Why do we use hotcakes for our metaphor? Why not hot dogs or french fries? Or are hotcakes for some reason, what everyone is buying these days. If so, I am completely out of the loop, which brings me to my next point.


Out of the loop... We know this refers to having little or no knowledge of something, but why do we say loop? Is it some mysterious inner circle we are not in, and if so, why are we are not in it? Is it closed off to certain people if they do not have the magic password?


When it comes down to it... What is this infamous "it" we seem to always be referring to?


It's a dog-eat-dog world. Oh really? Have you seen a dog eat another dog? Maybe so, but I do not think this very common, at least not common enough to use as an expression.


Slept like a baby... Unless you are blessed to have a baby who does not cry, most babies wake up crying in the middle of the night. So it maybe it should be slept like an adult...?


I know that like the back of my hand. How many of us actually sit for hours and study the back of our hand? I know I do not, I have other more important things to do, LIKE CHECK OUT THE LATEST ACTIVITY IN HUBPAGES!


Did the bus come yet? Yeah it did like fifteen minutes ago. I am actually just standing here for no good reason. Of course it didn't come yet!


Stupid idiot... You know this one. This one usually comes out in an argument. For example, "Why did you do that? You are such a stupid idiot!" Oftentimes in arguments, we tend to lose rationality and say things over and over but use different words. It would be like me saying, "I am going to the grocery store supermarket, want to come with me in my car automobile?


New and improved... If something is new, how can it also be improved? For something to be improved, there is an understood implication that the "something" has all ready been existent.



Things We Do On Facebook

I know this gets touched on all the time, but I want to share two things we do and bring the nosensicalness of them to light. (Yes, nonsensicalness is a word)

#1 Why do we post things like "Hey!" on someone's wall? Couldn't we just text them or message them privately? By posting on their wall, it almost seems like you are inviting all of your Facebook friends and theirs to join in on the conversation. Think of doing this in real life at a party. You are minding your own business and having a good ol' time when all of a sudden... Two people in the middle of the room begin to scream out their conversation, basically involuntarily inviting everyone in to hear what they have to say. Wouldn't that be a little odd?


#2 Why do we post statuses about what we are are doing or just got done doing. Now don't me wrong I do this to, but does it really make sense? Do people really care that we are going to Blockbuster to pick up our favorite movie or that we are going to play basketball at the park? How did we ever get through life before Facebook? I mean we didn't have the opportunity to tell our "x" amount of followers that we are going to get our favorite coffee at Starbucks!

Things We Do In Real Life

Going through great lengths to find the desperately coveted TV remote You know, like checking under the couch, looking in the kitchen, maybe in the bedroom on the dresser. Why can't you just use the button on the television?


Why do we post animal crossing signs on the roads? Is it that animals are very likely to cross at this exact stretch of the road and not several hundred feet beforehand?



Bank Oddities Why is that banks will sometimes leave their vault open, but have their pens chained to the table? Do they really think the customer is going to steal the pen, and even if they did, at least they didn't steal the money. Oh wait they did, because you left the door open!


Store our expensive cars Why do most people leave their Lexus and Mercedes Benz outside in the driveway and their worthless junk inside the garage?


Why do we call the man who invests our money a broker? Isn't using the word broke in a financial sense usually referring to a negative aspect?



Cursive writing? Why did we have to learn cursive writing in school? We don't use it now, right?



Getting mad at the TV remote Why do we press harder on the remote buttons thinking that for some strange reason it will magically work? Did you happen to check to see if the batteries are dead?

Could You Make Sense Out of Any of This Nonsense?

I hope you have enjoyed this and have had a few laughs. Unfortunately it is time to get back to work and stop your laughing at this nonsensical nonsense! It is time to do something constructive like reading a book upside down or brushing your teeth with no toothpaste. Or drinking diet soda with fast food, or eating cereal with a fork.

If you have enjoyed this humorous approach to writing, make sure to stop by and visit some of my other works.

      Yeah, we say and do some dumb things, hey? My partner, when he is annoyed about something or someone shakes his head and says "I tell you what!". It cracks me up (now there I go, ever seen anyone really cracking up, that's a scary thought!!!), anyway I say to him "What?", and he doesn't know!!! He just says it!!! Great hub Josh, you sure do make a good point. My votes and best wishes (there I go again, just mean wishing you well, you know like good health, etc, I could hardly send my worst wishes!!!)

      This is great. I for one am CONSTANTLY correcting people when they say "I could care less." In the same breath, I am a sucker for nice handwriting whether it's print or cursive. I enjoyed learning cursive in school and by default I write in cursive about 95% of the time. I wish people today had better handwriting-- so many people are sloppy writers and then they complain that I can't read what they "tried" to write. This may or may not have any kind of correlation with cursive. Writing cursive might help encourage healthy penmanship habits? I dunno... I haven't researched it. Anyway, anyway, great points!

      Great hub. I actually play the "literal game" at work. I challenge people on the things they say by taking what they have just said literally... It's hilarious to watch people re-think the things they say and understand what they actually said.

      Most people open mouth and then engage brain afterwards with oftentimes unwanted results.

      Ms-Chrysalis 5 years ago from North Carolina

      That was hilarious! We have a new manager at work who loves starting a new project, then stops associates who are walking by, and says, " Will you give me a hand?" And of course, once she has recruited enough help, she seems to mysteriously disappear. Well, once Halloween rolled around a coworker was ready for her. Like always, she's in the middle of something. She says, " Oh thank goodness you're here. Can you give me a hand?" My coworker throws a plastic prop hand at her and keeps walking. She was speechless and I fell out laughing! And the fact that he never even looked back made it that much more awesome. As I slow clapped in my head I too walked off. Well played coworker. Well played.

    • Civil War Bob profile image

      Civil War Bob 5 years ago from Glenside, Pennsylvania

      Good hub, Josh...voted up, useful, funny, and interesting. Now to answer some of your questions:

      "Jump in my car"...literally worked in the 50s/60s for convertibles...was really cool on tv show "Route 66."

      "Same difference" works in math class...what's the difference of 5-2 and 6-3?

      "It" is related to that "one" of which we're supposed to "have a good one." ;)

      Don't know for sure, but I think the "loop" may have been the hangman's noose originally out of which it was good to be!

      Remember all those dogs mentioned in the Bible? Yeah...they got hungry for stuff other than Jezebel when she got thrown over the wall and the feeding frenzy extended to their buddies?

      The English guy with the Confederates in "Gettysburg" said he "slept like the dead" right before Pickett's charge, then changed it to "baby" when he saw the impending doom of the troops in the trees...might have started the trend.

      New one: "Really?" after you explain something...means basically they thing you're lying!

      Have a great day and Feel the Fours Young Hubi!! ;)

      "It's a dog eat dog world! Lol.. too funny! I don't use this expression, but I've heard it before. Animal cross signs, a good way to signal pedestrians to slow down, but do people actually pay attention to signs? Many don't even come to a complete stop at a stop sign. You're right! I could care less actually means that you do care. Hey, great minds think alike. Voted up funny including the signs! What? hahhahahaha

Your obvious sarcasm is entertaining and your content is beyond relatable. I think of many of things throughout my daily life wondering "why did you say it like that?" Also people should say ATM Machine (ATM= Automated Transaction MACHINE) or PIN number (PIN= Personal Identification NUMBER)... why all the extra words? I know what you meant lol. It was awesome read this. Voted up, funny and awesome. Kudos, buddy. :)

      Shauna L Bowling 5 years ago from Central Florida

      Excellent hub, Josh! Our communication is so full of oxymoronic, contradictory phrases.

      When you posted the FB segment about carrying on public conversations, I immediately thought of people who insist on talking on their cell phones in public. Who the hell wants to hear their conversation? What is so friggin' important that you can't wait until you're in a private setting? What did these oh-so-important-wannabes do before cell phones? When I'm in the grocery store and I get a phone call, unless it's to remind me to pick up some bread, I tell the caller I'll call back when I'M NOT IN PUBLIC!

      And how 'bout turning up the A/C. I still haven't figured that one out. Does that mean make it colder (turning it down)? Or make it warmer (turning it up)?

      And shut off the light. Excuse me, but I shut doors (or my ears to idiots who have no sense of what words really mean), I TURN OFF the lights.

      Or, at the risk of being banned by the HP police, "I have to take a leak". Really? You don't have one to leave? You need to TAKE someone else's?

      One what really gets me, and this I hear from city folk is, "yeah, no". Which is it?????

      I could go on and on, but you've got the spotlight here, so I'll leave you with this thought:

      No need to look for the remote if you're male. IT'S IN YOUR HAND! You've grown an appendage. Pick a show and get off your lazy ass when you want to change the channel!!

      My name's Bravewarrior and I approve this message. I hope you do, too, Josh!

      Josh,

      I've found myself walking past the TV to look for the remote in the refrigerator. I do this because I once found my TV remote in the refrigerator. Yeah...weird. I've also told people that my favorite color is yellow when I'm very aware that it is in fact green.

      I'm off to the grocery store, supermarket to stare at my hand.

      The only complaint I have here is that it took me so long to find this hub!

      Funny, ironic and oh so true! This is really a great one.

      What about 'eating like a bird' have you ever fed a bird? Do you know how much they actually eat?

      We all know there's more but you've done a hilariously good job here and got everyone thinking.

      Voted up, funny, and interesting.
