Top Ten Things People Should, but Probably Will Never, Learn From

Britgirl
Humans are supposed to be the most intelligent creatures on Earth...so why do we hardly ever learn by our mistakes. Pretty silly, huh?

This list may seem cynical but it's just how it is and I'm sorry (a word I'll probably repeat again at some point)

The Top Ten

1 Making the same mistakes

History repeats itself and we know it. Humanity has fallen for many mistakes that had already been made, and it will probably fall for more. - Martinglez

Why do we never learn? Making the same mistakes time and time again. Why can't we just say "okay...that was bad. Not going there again." But we don't. - Britgirl

2 Saying something stupid

Gah! All the time! We say some pretty stupid, tactless or embarrassing things sometimes and as soon as they leave our lips, we regret them! But does it stop us from committing a verbal catastrophe again (possibly even later in the day)? I don't think so... - Britgirl

Every time I say something stupid, I just wish I can learn to shut up. - Delgia2k

Thank you, V. You're right! :) I'm tres bon at it! Why would I want to tamper with a winning system? ;).
(nearly said something REALLY stupid there...) - Britgirl

Don't be so hard on yourself, Beege. Everybody's gotta be good at something. ;)) (Boy, howdy. Really better be a big winkin' smiley behind this.)

3 Falling for completely the wrong person
4 Heartbreak
5 Saying sorry

We say sorry all the time. But do we always mean it? If we did, we wouldn't have to keep repeating it. - Britgirl

It's true everyone say sorry but they actually didn't mean it - Righteous

6 Forgetting things

This NEVER happens to us higher-order thinkers, because...I'd like a Whopper, fries and an...oil change, please... don't... feed the monkeys, madam, but in the morning, I'll be sober.

7 Other peoples' mistakes

Surely if we watch other people fall something will kick in inside of us to not follow in their footsteps - but no, we not only try their shoes on but we trip over our own feet because of it.
A lesson: Never try on other peoples' shoes... - Britgirl

8 Relying on others

We will surely never learn if we constantly rely on others. We need to stand alone to make our own mistakes (again and again and...see a pattern forming here)? - Britgirl

9 Good advice

Umm...Henry Higgens also very rightly said: "There even are places where English completely disappears. In America they haven't used it for years."... - Britgirl

Aw, cute, Mr. V. But I am a Miss :). - Britgirl

*Sigh* You are good at this war lark, Mr. V. If you noticed, I did spell Higgins correctly the first time. Obviously I spelt it incorrectly the second to get a rise out of you (a typical wimmin trait :P )
The English pronounce things more beautifully. Go on, admit it. I dare you...
Wait...did you really call me "Sweet Pie"?... - Britgirl

Yes, sweet pie. Should I have said "Ms. Sweet Pie? "

10 Lying

I put this last because some of us actually do learn from this after we watch the affect it can have on others...
But there are still some foolish people out there who will NEVER learn. - Britgirl

You know, Beege; it's like the answer to "Does this dress make me look fat? "

11 Breaking promises

I absolutely hate it when people break promises.

I don't break promises, I merely have a rethink. - Britgirl
