....but we do anyway.
I was just pouring myself a cup of tea, much like I do a half dozen times a day. And as the little paper fold that is attached to the string went sailing over the cup rim and into the hot water, much as it does a half dozen times a day, I grumped to myself that I would have to stick my fingers in there and fish it out once again.
Now there are three simple solutions so that wouldn't happen. Aim the water so it doesn't land on the tea bag; Hold the string with the other hand; or put the damn bag in the cup after the hot water is in. But I don't. And I particularly aim for the tea bag when I am pouring in the hot water, I guess in hopes it will make tea faster by landing directly on the tea bag, I don't know.
When I am in my car and feel like lighting up a cigar I take off the wrapped and stuff it down between the seat and the center storage compartment. It is a handy way of making non stinky trash disappear.
When I am getting ready to go on a trip, as I am now, I clean out the car and curse the cigar wrappers that are wedged way down in the track area of the seat that I need a long thin stick to get at.
Life would be so much simpler at that point in time if I had placed the cigar wrappers in my pocket, or a trash bag in the car. But no. And I still won't.
Life is filled with things we should have done but didn't.
Then we come along and do things we shouldn't have.
