WHY don't they?

1: WHY don't they ... Bring back those tree saver paper bags at the supermarkets? We use to get them at Safeway in the 80s and if they're good enough for Don Draper they're good enough for me.

2: WHY don't they ... Design containers for hair conditioner so that you can get it all out ?

This one is good -

But this one is impossible (see tiny hole) and if you risk life and limb to remove the top most of it will stay in the 'shoulders'.

3: WHY don't they ..
Make the leads and wires for computer stuff, phone chargers, radios, lamps etc. in white? Most people have light coloured walls like mine.

4: WHY don't they ..
Design a contraption for our canine friends so that they can enjoy the journey without annoying their owners?

** Ooops they already did.

Yay First! That last one interferes with the patent I'm working on. Lily would like the ide of two grommits accompanying her though.

PS Try painting your walls black.

If only they made cars with running boards these days. I'd buy one.

Perhaps they could make one with ironing boards for the ladies.

Is that the patent that involves a plastic box and a J cloth?
Black walls? Do you want me to suffer from permanent S.A.D.?

I used to love riding on the running board when I was a kid. I never actually noticed when they disappeared.
Who does your ironing?

Suggestions worthy of Dragon's Den, m'dear. It's no wonder we as a race can't get the big things right when we much up even the obvious...

I cut my conditioner bottles open to get to the dregs. I am very thrifty.

Why can't They design a spectacles cleaning spray bottle that works all the way to the bottom?

I used to use washing up liquid but I was told off.

I would be inclined to put the dog inside and the kids in the running board bags!

Why don't they bring back proper Labour politicians like Aneurin Bevan and Denis Healey?

The current lot should be shot, or recycled into something useful. Disposable underwear for example.

I'd gladly put that paper bag over my head if it would mean a shag from Don Draper!

Blogger Dave said...

Just a minute. Kaz, how is a paper bag (made ultimately from trees) rather than a plastic bag a tree-saver?

Or were you being ironic?

Concorde never stood a chance.

I'm impressed - if I tried that at home I'd probably manage to slit my wrists.

That was a song by Toyah in the eighties.
She sang 'It's mysteree' and I can't say it any other way now.

I do like to be able to wash my hair without turning the air red.
I wonder how many people buy it twice.

You can't be optimistic through misty optics.

Me too.
Good thing I haven't got any kids.
How about this idea!

I am surprised and delighted that you respect those two great men.
Both had better eyebrows than Darling Alistair.

Well I'm so gorgeous I wouldn't need it. I bought the DVD full set recently and I'm totally won over.
Is there a help line?

Ironic ? MOI?
This is an eighties name. The bags are made from recycled paper and biodegradable.
But I see your point.

I put a little bit of water in bottles with dregs then shake, and you can then use the very last bit,although a bit dilluted.
I think kids in the back of car must be much more annoying than dogs, they should invent something to put the kids in.

Plastic carrier bags only have 2 possible uses, three if you include kiddie suffocation, 1 a bag, and two small bin liner.

Paper bags were used in my house for:
bin liners
postal wrap
exercise book covers
mouse cage liners
craft accessories

and I'm sure there are more...I just can't think of them.

PS. I think the travel sack would be much better for kids.

Tooth paste tubes! you can never get the last 5% out.What A Waste!
Why do people never drive with hats anymore?

Blogger Mopsa said...

I'd like my dogs to drive the car and then I could sit on the outside enjoying the wind in my hair. So, why don't they make cars that can be steered using paws?

My local green grocers do a neat line in brown paper bags. Makes a man feel like a man.

Actually - it seems to work better when you add water.
Perhaps we should mix it with water at the start and make it last twice as long.
But thank god we aren't that anal.
(re kids - see reply to xl above)

A brown paper bag is a beautiful thing.
I never had a live mouse ( I knew something was missing in my life.)

You can cut the tube open with scissors - but perhaps life is too short.
Old gits still drive in hats - I note these things so that I will never achieve old gitness.

I hear that robot driven cars are well advanced now.
So look forward to many bad hair days to come.

So that's why Don Draper used them - and what a role model for a real man.
All muscle and no emotion.

Jane wants one of those 'dog traval sacks' for 'ME'..
I had to point out to her that would not work as it is me who drives... not her. Tut.. what should I expect from a blond?

My blogs: today show Park Flowers and Water Lillies

Yes. Here we are living in a society where we are supposed to be greener and greener yet no one is halting the throwaway society and requiring manufacturers to come up with sensible packing and products one jot!

And don't get me started on the Government's highly green 'Car Scrappage' scheme to consign all cars over 10 year old (who have outlived their carbon footprint in the manufacturing) to the scrapheap. Literally.

PS - re the cables - I hear they are at least now forcing mobile phone companies to have universal chargers which will work on any phone, instead of each mobile having a different one and masses ending up in landfill.

If you used natures natural conditioner , a good slab of lard, you would have no need for these fancy bottles of apothacaries gunge.
It would be nice if the drivers seat was glassed in to avoid distractions from dogs , kids and annoying passengers

I don't know how you ladies come up with these things.

Jane should get herself a car and a licence.
You can't expect her to drive a smelly old Landrover.

You are Ms Angry today.
But that Green car thing seems crackers.

I was in Maplin today trying to buy what they advertise as Universal Laptop chargers.
Turns out they only work on a few laptops. Universal must have a new meaning.
Good news - I read about a firm introducing 'transparent' cables.

Perhaps we gals do rely too much on fancy toilet requisittttes.
Pass the Castrol please.
I don't mind dogs - but I don't do passengers in my old 'onda.

It's a great effort Liam - but we manage somehow.

4. A similar contraption would be good for small children.

Blogger zIggI said...

are those all your wires? What have you got plugged in?? My laptop only has the one wire (black true) but my printer has a white one. Shame then that my walls are red. Why don'y they make wires any colour you like?!

I was once prescribed that stuff. The young male chemist asked if it helped - I replied "No I'm still the same bloody bad tempered witch I've always been - so go and ....." and he did.

See answer to xl above. You would have plenty of support for this opinion.

Phone, laptop, printer, lamp, mobile charger, vibator, radio/iPod dock.
I lied about one of them.
I read an advert on the web yesterday talking about transparent/invisible cables.
Just what you need.

Blogger Roses said...

Why would you feel you had to lie about plugging in your lamp?

Strange woman.

Live mice are fun, but they did have a habit of peeing everywhere. And escaping. And breeding.

Which is why I have just a cat now (and had her done).

Blogger zIggI said...

better still why don't they make things wireless and mean it eh?

9:22 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

You spotted my secret.
I would really love to have a cat - but I don't think he would like living in a flat.

It would be scary to think of all the invisible messages being sent across my room. You could press 'print' and the alarm would go off.
