10,000 Spoons

…When all you need is a knife might not be ironic, but it is unfortunate. Add your own verse, stanza, or story of badly-timed annoyance to Alanis Morissette’s classic.

I could probably write quite a lot of non-ironies-that-are-just-sucky-situations, pointing out (as has already been done) that the song called Ironic isn’t.  I’m going to have to check the lyrics to make sure I’m not repeating any…

  • Getting all dressed up just to get drenched by a passing car driving through a puddle.
  • Setting off early but being stuck in a traffic jam.
  • Having a choice of two things and choosing the one that then doesn’t happen.
  • Working all night to come in the next morning to find that someone changed their mind and didn’t tell you.

I think this will get added to over time!  You can also choose your own lyric from the aforementioned classic cause it feels a little cheating putting it in myself!
