I love Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. This post isn’t about why.
There’s a somewhat recurring segment on the show called “How Is This Still A Thing?” In that past he’s talked about the Sports Illustrated sswimsuit edition, Ayn Rand, Columbus Day, Dressing Up As Other Races, and the Miss America Pageant. Most recently, it was Daylight Savings Time:
But it got me to thinking of even MORE things that are STILL a thing. (And don’t even get me started on things that have BECOME a thing).
Mainly…how is it still a thing that doctors office hours are ONLY during the times people are at work. (HOW?!) Or in general, public services (banks, libraries, doctors, etc.) all open around 8 and close around 5 or 6. Like…I want to use your services but I can’t pay for them unless I go to work…which you’re forcing me to miss!
