I often wonder what the deal is with

1. Always ending up walking behind the slowest person on a stairway, especially before/after work
2. The way that traffic, without fail, slows to a standstill the second you change lanes
3. People thinking amazing things about each other all the time but not saying them outloud
4. Broken kitchen appliances working perfectly only when trying to demonstrate their failures to others
5. Right-handed desks and the heinous tyranny of the majority - THROW SOUTHPAWS A BONE
