Funny Events Which Could Be Made Into Fake Documentaries
Disclaimer: This is a silly hub and all the characters are the creations of the author.
Do you ever dream about making a funny or inane documentary? I think some of these scenarios would make interesting documentaries. Since most reality shows are more scripted than people think, why not make a fake documentary with a bit of humor?
Parking Right In Front of the Apartment Complex Mailbox:
Never mind that your designated parking spot is only fifteen feet from the mailbox because walking that far is an inconvenience! Why on earth do these people have to park right in front of the mailbox to retrieve their mail to then to only drive a few more feet to park? I live in the back of the complex and all of us have to walk to our mailbox because we cannot park in front of ours. I bicycle and walk most of the time anyway to go everywhere, but why do a few people have to drive to their apartment complex mailbox? Would it hurt you to take a few steps? I think it would be fun to have a documentary asking people why they do this:
Interviewer: Sir, I could not help to notice you only have to drive ten feet from the mailbox to park, but you insist on parking right in front of it to check your mail. Why are you doing this?
Parking Guy: Why walk when you can drive!
Chatting Up The Cashier When There Is A Long Line:
Have you ever noticed how some customers start chatting up the cashier as a long line starts forming behind them? Not only do they have to tell the cashier about all their opinions regarding food prices going up, the presidential election, but some even touch upon their partial problems. Not sure really, but most people do not want to wait in a long line just because Mr. Chatty shares all of his opinions and personal problems. Get online and start writing a blog if you have that much to say.
Here is how this fake documentary interview might go:
Interviewer: I could not help and notice that you enjoy sharing all of your opinions with the world. Why does the cashier have to hear them all?
Mr. Chatty: Well if the cashier did not hear my opinions than the sun might not rise the next morning. You know the universe might fall out of orbit if people did not listen to everything I have to say.
Interviewer: I think you should start writing a blog about some of these topics.
Mr. Chatty: I think I will.
Our second fake documentary resulted in Mr. Chatty no longer holding up grocery store lines because now he is writing blogs about the price hike on potatoes and bread. Unfortunately, the lazy guy is still blocking access to the mailbox.
