Why Can't They?

I've been frustrated by a number of small things lately, as follows:

Why can't they make 'shoe liners' such as those worn with high heels that actually don't show, instead of only claiming to not show?

Why can't they switch me from 5 8-hour days to 4 10-hour days, so I can have more personal time?

Further, why can't I just work my 40 hours when I want to, instead of having to conform to any particular schedule?

Why can't they make the glue come off with the calendar page in tear-away desk calendars, so you aren't left with overhanging glue, which, when torn off, does not leave a clean line?

Why can't people just be nice, even online? Anonymity is not an excuse or incentive for vile behavior.

Why can't they make a flat-iron that actually straightens my hair?

Why can't people understand that stay-at-home moms are doing a job?

Why can't people accept that 'gender-specific' roles are always going to exist? "God created them, male and female He made them....And He said 'It is good.'"

Why can't they create a houseplant that is easy to take care of?

And while we're at it: Why can't they make world peace happen?

Why can't people use a blinker when turning when you are sitting there waiting on them?

Why do crabby people take out their crabbiness on you when you don't even know them?

Why do teachers assume they know your kids better than you do?

Okay, those are mine.

I don't have all the answers but I have had spider plants all of my life. They are resiliant and can go for weeks at a time with very little water!
Hope that helps.
Thanks for your super sweet and smart comments!
