True Common Sense

Is it my imagination or do people seem to lack true common sense? As if bizarre fashions with ripped jeans, torn shirts and baggy pants weren’t bad enough, now there are people spending money to act like a cat or a dog seems beyond comprehension. Most people simply don’t pay attention anymore.  For example, they know their cars need servicing yet they ignore it.  They don’t put dates on their phones or calendars to remind them to change their oil, rotate their tires, check all fluids, and get an overall inspection.  They wait until it makes a sound or a noise or worse just stops working. This is not rocket science.  This is also true for good health.  Everyone should make sure they have a yearly checkup.  It is an ounce of prevention. When we were teens we might have waited to do our laundry until we ran out of clothes.  We may have been forced to end up ironing our clothes to look presentable.  I, personally have a laundry schedule.  It includes lights, darks, my sheets, towels and other items that need a wash one to two times a week.  I hate the huge piles. Long ago before dryers we had to hang all of our clothes out to dry.  Men took their work shirts to the laundry to ensure they were presentable for work every day. There are the individuals who do not clean on a regular basis.  Then, if family visits, workmates, or friends they have to frantically clean.  Most things in life are simply true common sense. My late husband would stock up on all non perishable groceries. He would go so far overboard that he would then donate the excess and then do it all over again the following year.  If there is anything that COVID has taught us is to be prepared and use true common sense, don’t you agree?
