It’s been said that common sense is actually not all that common. Some people believe that everyone has common sense but that a certain segment of the population just doesn’t use it. If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time you know how I love nonsense, so this trait likely puts me in the group of people having uncommon sense.
As a member of this group, I’d like to help the rest of you understand why some of us appear to be lacking in common sense. Here are the top reasons why some of us don’t use common sense:
1.) We put all of our common sense in a really safe place and then forgot exactly where that was.
2.) We’ve treated it with rooting hormone, put it in a dark place, and are hoping to grow it into a sixth sense.
3.) We actually do have common sense, but we’re too modest to expose it publicly.
4.) The dog ate it.
5.) Someone else cleaned our bedrooms when we weren’t at home and the person accidentally threw out all our common sense because it looks like old pizza (which also explains why the dog would want to eat it).
6.) Common sense becomes cheap if everyone has plenty of it. Scarcity creates value. You’re welcome.
7.) It accidentally fell in the toilet and we didn’t want to reach in and save it. So we flushed. Wouldn’t you have done the same?
8.) It fell on the floor in a place where the three second rule does not apply. So we left it there.
9.) It’s not in season and, therefore, would be far too cost prohibitive to import.
10.) We’re holding onto it in the hopes of driving up the market price, thereby saving our shares for an IPO so we can go public and get rich selling it.
I hope this helps creating better understanding between the common sense people and those of us who are uncommonly sensed.
