Why does the debit pad at the store ask if the amount is okay?

No, it's not! But I have to say yes anyway.

The letter (without being openned) is being dropped off back in his mail-box by the girl - she's writing address unknown etc. hoping he'll move on or figure it out.  It's a bittersweet puppy love song - the sender is too clueless to put it together.

My reply is out of sequence above - sorry - the Elvis song a bit back for those wondering.

 

My contribution to hmm... why does Awesome means great and Awful the opposite - you'd think full of awe is better.

We had a note on our highway construction plane. "All work must take place within the Right-of-Way". Our local region of our DOT made us expand the note before we were eligible for funding. It now reads "All work must take place within the Right-of-Way. No work may take place outside the Right-of-Way." I think they think that you can be inside and possibly still be outside. More likely they can't understand anything that isn't redundant.

If I sit on a branch of a tree am I sitting on the tree or in the tree?

Why do we get in a car, but on a bus?  Has anyone ever actually got on a bus?  Sounds dangerous.

Would an open top double-decker qualify?

Why do we pronounce bicycle like (bi-sick-el) but pronounce motorcycle like (motor-sikel)?


Imagine the following on a road sign:  CHURCH DRIVE SLOW

Now does it say to drive slow because there's a church?  Or does it say to go slow because there's a church drive (like driveway)?
