    First let me say this is a spin off of my hot dog thread but it got me thinking.

    Why are there 10 hotdogs in a pack but only 8 buns in a pack? This was corrected when they started selling the bun length dogs.

    Anyone else buy things and wonder why can't the two get together on their packaging?

    St Louis wings and fries. One packet of dill sauce does not suffice for dipping all wings and fries.

    Restaurants routinely serve me a bottle of beer and a glass that holds 85% of a bottle of beer.

    That's why I always opt for drinking straight from the bottle. Guess they can't make a glass that holds 12 ounces.

    A bag of chips and a container of dip never seem to be made for each other.

    Ya gotta dig in there with the bean dip n ruffles chips. On the side, a small deli hard salami n fizzy pepsi. Get a rhythm going on: bite of salami off the chub, chew, add a dipped chip, chew let em make love in your mouth, and take a swig of pepsi. Ahhh that's life :smile:

    Taco bell for dinner. Yummy!

    Tea in a coffee shop - too much tea, never enough milk.....

    Tim Tams - only 9 in a pack (or 11), impossible to split between two people.....

    Ditto dividing any pre-packaged treat evenly between three kids. There are no martyrs in a family!

    Damn, I feel sorry for their food cost...
