In our modern world you get hit with a lot of noise. From the weatherman on the local news while you’re getting dressed, to the wife nattering on about all the household chores that need to be done during the day, to the radio on the morning commute, to Karen at work who won’t stop talking about her cats, and the list goes on and on and on. It gets exhausting after a while. Which is why not listening is more of a defense mechanism than anything else. We tune out to save our sanity. And sure, that means that from time to time we miss something important. It’s the cost of keeping all your screws nice and tight, so to speak. But you’ll want to tune in for these memes. They’re funny enough that you’ll want to pay close attention.
