🌟

- autocorrect
tries to trick me into saying star wars when I am Always talking about star trek
🌟🌟🌟

- toe socks
Very cool concept but wiggling the toes causes the fabric to wear out So Fast and what's the point of individually wrapping the toes if you can't wiggle them
🌟🌟🌟🌟

innovations I hate for benign reasons

I have no idea how I'm supposed to wear one and it makes me angry to see other people happy in them
🌟🌟

idk I just thought they should be cooler
🌟🌟 1/2

- fancy pencil cases
really only good for maybe 3 to 5 pencils before they start bulging weirdly and if you're gonna have a special case for art supplies why would you have so few

🌟🌟 3/5

innovations I hate for benign reasons 

- those water-pik teeth cleaners
have to resist the urge to use them as a tiny pressure washer for a dollhouse because my mom needs her teeth clean and they're expensive so I can't ruin hers
🌟🌟🌟 1/4

- tupperware containers
I'm p sure they're not actually microwave-safe but they haven't melted yet so I'm not stopping. also the stains.
🌟🌟🌟

- lamp shades
why are they so dusty. no matter how much I clean the dust doesn't go away. also they don't always cover the top part of the lamp so there's dust Under the lamp shade and that's just as awful
🌟

innovations I hate for benign reasons 

- toilets that talk
I've never encountered one but what if I did
🌟

- bed sizing conventions
why do alaskans get their own bed size. what's going on up there
🌟🌟

- air purifiers with the blue light
I used to have one of those in my bedroom that made a zapping sound every time it came in contact with dust which was rly fun and cool but now they're all silent so I don't know if the dust is been trapped or not so there's just an annoying blue light in the corner of my bedroom when I'm trying to sleep
🌟🌟🌟

innovations I hate for benign reasons 

- giant flatscreen tvs
I still make that funny squinting face trying to make out details so it's a constant reminder of how bad my eyesight is which is quite rude
🌟🌟

- tile floors
why are all of them ugly
🌟

- plastic hangers
can't handle denim. always stretch Slightly out of shape and I'm scared to try warming up the plastic to mold it back into shape because what if that doesn't work then I just have a weird plastic smell that's going to take forever to leave because I'm p sure those air purifiers don't work
🌟🌟 1/2

🌟🌟 3/4

- the circular rotating doors
I was promised hours of comical looping hijinks but they're actually very difficult to get trapped in
🌟🌟

innovations I hate for benign reasons 

- button-up shirts
take forever to put on bc you think you got it right the first time but every button is off by One and you can't pretend it's a stylistic choice because this is a business casual brunch not a funtimes casual brunch
🌟🌟 3/4

- analog clocks
is that 12:56pm or 12:58pm? I have no way of knowing. those tick marks are suggestions.
🌟🌟🌟

- hair ties
I thought these were like?? ribbons you use to tie your hair back??? but apparently they're scrunchies without pizazz. boring. I don't care if they come in pink.
🌟

innovations I hate for benign reasons 

- foot stools
not comfortable to rest your feet on no matter what position you're in. good for standing on if you're just a little short I guess but you could just get platform shoes which look cooler
🌟🌟

I don't own a pair which is deeply unfortunate because what if I need to walk the catwalk one day? I won't have the experience and my wobbling will be the laughing stock of the fashion world
🌟🌟🌟

- brooms
there is always more hair stuck in the bristles. where is this hair coming from. I will never be free.
