    That's why most supermarkets here have shopping carts that require a €1 deposit.

      Well, to be fair, today being a grandmother doesn't mean you have to be old - if you give birth to a child at age 18 and that child gives birth at age 18 as well you can be grandmother by the age of 36, and that's without underage pregnancy...

        And in my reality/filter bubble, parenthood comes around at 30 to 35...

          I can't say I always knew it, but once I learned that the higher the number you put after "DEFCON" the less serious it is, it bothers me to an unreasonable level when people say "DEFCON Five!" or "DEFCON 1000!" to make something sound more serious.

            There's an entrance to a building that I have to walk through about once per month. For the last 2.5 years, I completely forget that these exterior entrance doors are "push" doors (the opposite of what it mandated by building code, so it's highly HIGHLY unusual)...and I pull on them, even as I'm looking directly at the "push" sign on the door frame.

                  Maybe it's the loo's door?

                    One of the neighbouring families in the house I grew up in has the name "Loos". Thank you for making it funny 30 years later.

                      Between the addition of unnecessary apostrophes and the misuse of words ending in 'ly', there are times I just want to bang my head on the keyboard - or the nearest brick wall!

                        Even with that my mom became a grandma at 50, which considering life expectancy for women is easily into 80s is not really all that old

                            The price of the Note 8 and Note 9 phones. I've got a Note 5 on it's last legs, and I legitimately actually really do use the stylus. I've worn out 4 on this phone, so it is actually useful to me.

                            But holy shit, are these phones expensive.

                              My legs feel as though they weigh a ton and a half. Perhaps the many miles that I've walked over the past few days and the stairs at the Great Wall of China have something to do with it... but still, I've been walking lots almost every day for months and it shouldn't have had this much of an effect.
