I've always wondered why a person engaging in conversation with another person at a bar, never seems to take more than one sip of his/her drink - why don't they ever FINISH their drink!?


What else have you guys noticed?

One I've always noticed is whenever a TV show does a Christmas episode, it always -- always!! -- is snowing on Christmas eve.

It's not just about cliches (in fact, the homepage even says that theyre not there to categorize cliches), but the site www.tvtropes.org talks about this stuff quite a lot (no, im not spamming, i just happen to enjoy this site).

My favorite was always the two dates at the same time. That one never got old with me. Three's Company didn't mine that situation ENOUGH.

It's not particularly enticing TV to see a person drink their whole glass. What if it takes 20 minutes? You also don't see people sleeping without anything happening.

No one ever says "goodbye" when they hang up the phone - this is true in movies and on TV.

...and (at least in the pre-cellphone, pre-voicemail era), whenever a TV character called someone on the phone, the other person always picked up on the first ring. The caller never got a busy signal or a wrong #. Smile

One that has always bugged me in tv as well as movies is people ordering food in a restaurant and rushing out without eating a bite.

Car scenes are almost always POV from the windshield facing driver and passenger, never a passenger or backseat view.
