Reach for the lower atmosphere!
Chances are that you’re never going to be asked to participate in any prestigious Olympic event. The people who are asked to compete spend their entire lives training, beating out every other athlete in their chosen field and proving themselves to be the best in their nation. That takes extreme skill, lots of time, and plenty of money ― something that not many of us have in an athletic arena.
No, us average citizens may not be looked at for our athletic prowess, but we certainly excel at everyday tasks that can prove to be difficult and frustrating. Here are the things that would be in the “Ordinary Olympics.”
Storing Tupperware containers and lids in the most efficient and effective manner. (UberToonces)
I can tell the solstice is upon us when my Mother-In-Law asks for help organizing her tupperware drawer.
Cue an hour pulling everything out and trying to lid it all, another two hours of “Oh I definitely have that lid/container, maybe I put it downstairs/in the garage/at the back of that tiny cabinet on top of the fridge no one can ever reach/lent it to Maude down the street/accidentally buried it last weekend gardening, can you check please?” and 30 minutes more of actually cleaning the things and fixing the faulty drawer, and we will have stuff finally sorted.
It then goes neatly into drawers so pristinely that it all becomes a model-builder’s wet dream of the metropolitan area built entirely of tupperware, complete with lids on everything as we inevitably throw out enough mismatching stuff there’s room to never HAVE to go hunting again.
Cue two weeks later, when the entire drawer has become a FEMA-certified disaster location and absolutely NOTHING is stored together, “because it takes up way less space this way!” (Keyboard_Ghost)
Who can fast forward thru the commercials/opening credits without going too far, and having to rewind back. (taters_Mcgee)
I imagine the math in training: “You have a Bud Light commercial, a GEICO, then the same commercial again. How much time do you skip and how long do you press the button?”
“What’s the year?” (bronzebicker)
Longest time spent not working while at work and not getting caught. (jurassicbond)
I’m currently at three years. Hell, I’ve moved jobs twice and almost doubled my salary in that period. I’m on a roll, baby! (slowhand88)
