lovin' every minute of it

List things you do, say or hear in your everyday life that remind you of Seinfeld. Ill start with this one that recently happened to me.

The other day I was in the kitchen area at work and there is a vending machine there. A woman was purchasing something from the vending machine and suddenly I hear a loud Dammit !. I look over and she says my Twizzlers are stuck. Sure enough, I look at the machine and that little metal bar did not release her Twizzlers, they are just hanging there. Funny thing was, right next to the Twizzlers were the Twix bars (I guess the candy was in alphabetical order). I couldnt help but think of Georgie boy and his problem with the Twix bar in The Dealership Read the script of The Dealership Download the full epiosde video of The Dealership Discuss The Dealership .

Whenever I'm at my favorite pizza place, after placing an order, the pizza guy goes right to the soda machine to fill the drinks. I wait until he gets back before I drop some money in the tip jar. I want him to see that I'm tipping them. This always reminds me of George in The Calzone Read the script of The Calzone Download the full epiosde video of The Calzone Discuss The Calzone .

this isn't anything that happened on an episode of 'seinfeld,' but it did happen to me and it felt like a very seinfeldian-type moment.

i'm in a restaurant having dinner with a friend, and this korean man comes over and starts to make conversation with us. after a minute, he takes one of my cigarettes (which are laying on the table) without asking. i'm not the type who gets mad over that kind of thing, so i pull out my lighter and put it in his hand. he lights the cigarette, stares at the lightr afterward, and then puts it in his pocket. keep in mind, i don't speak korean, and he doesn't speak english. he nods a 'thank you' and goes back to his table. then, after i am finished eating, i want to have my post-meal cigarette, and so i have to go over to his table and ask for my lighter back. i pantomime a lighting action. he smiles, nods as if to say 'oh right, i took your lighter, how stupid of me.' then he pulls it out of his pocket, lights my cigarette *for* me, and returns the lighter back to his pocket.

i was too astonished by the whole thing to do anything but go back to my table and ask the waitress for some matches.

i just picture this whole scene playing out if george were a smoker. how the fact that even though it was only a 70 cent bic lighter, it would just EAT at him that the guy had the stones to take it like that.

That would make a great Seinfeld bit. Kramer could also be the smoker and may end up in a scuffle with the Korean dude.

That is a great story, it reminds me of when the actor who played Kramer on the Pilot took the box of raisins.

A pal of mine and me always have Seinfeld-esque moments.

We were talking about sleep and the subject of 'the sheet' came up. You know it, under the blanket, you have the sheet and it was a convo as to who likes the sheet. I very much enjoy the sheet, my friend doesnt like the sheet and I cant figure out why. So we start talking about it, and it gets a little heated, then my friend asks another one of our friends "Do you like the sheet?" he thought about it for a second, just thinking of what he meant and replies "Oh, I love the sheet!" and my friend says "I HATE THE SHEET"

I know when we go to the store or mall or somewhere, I always fear we will see somebody we know. I hate that!

Whats even better is that I am rather much like Larry David in CYE. My pal is also like him, we're both a mixture of Larry and George, with hatred.

We would make a great sitcom/reality show/documentary.

I'm sure all of us have encountered a moment where we wanna get rid of a guy who hangs around you and is not really a friend, but he/she wants to be your friend and stuff, just like in The Pool Guy and we all do things like what Jerry did in the movie theater to Kramer:

Jerry: Oh here comes Ramon, pretend we're talking.
Kramer: We are talking.
Jerry: Pretend it's interesting!

My wife and I were going to a party about a month ago and we stopped in a grocery store to pick up a bottle of wine. She couldn't decide on what kind to get, so I suggested a bougeleis because it was fruiter as opposed to this bourdeux which is more bold and robust. As we were leaving, I said "What about a bobka?" she said "What?"
and I said "Nevermind". Sometimes its depressing living in a One sided Seinfeldian relationship. Things would be easier if I could say something like "yada yada yada" or "she had man hands" and she would know what I was talking about.
I wonder if Marisa Tormei is available.

I was at a church service this past Sunday and an interim pastor and his wife were introducing themselves in front of the congregation. At one point in her introduction, she said “blah, blah, blah” to quickly end a story. I whispered over to my son that she should have used “yada, yada, yada” instead. It took all we had to keep from laughing out loud.

I just got back from a golf trip with some buddies and the room next to mine where some of my buddies were staying had a reverse peephole. It was weird.

My best friend broke up with his girl friend. My wife and I would have liked to stay in contact with the now ex girl friend, but she refused. It reminded me of the fab four's discussion about which person has to retreat from the group of mutual friends and Elaine's definition for broken up couples: The one who gets broken up with is the loser. The one who breaks up is the victor. "To the victor belong the spoils!"

My wife and I were at dinner the other night at a country club and they had a lounge singer. He was the spitting image of Jackie Chiles. As he was singing "Under the Boardwalk" all I heard was "Who told you to put the balm on?" I didn't tell you to put the balm on."

My brother is the perfect mix of George Costanza and Jason Alexander. He is short and fat and balding (not bald yet but definitely will be bald). That said, you might think -- who cares, there are a lot of short, fat, balding people out there, but let me tell you this: we also grew up in Livingston, NJ (that is where Jason Alexander aka Jay Scott Greenspan was raised), so my brother went to the same high school as George. Also, my brother and Jason Alexander both went to Boston University (by the way, my bro is only 26, much younger than George). So many things he has done are Costanza-esque. I will name but one for now and add more as they come to mind.
Last week, my brother was at a movie with his wife (yeah, I know what kind of nut gets married so young) and this girl sitting behind them gets a call on her cellphone. My brother couldn't believe it when the girl answers the call and starts yapping away on the thing. So he gets angry, turns around and starts screamign at her, "Are you nuts? This is a movie theater. Get off the damn phone!" The woman keeps talking, so my brother, turns on her again and says, "Are you absolutely insane? Get the hell out of the theater before I do something I don't want to do." Then the girl left and everyone clapped. Believe it or not, true story. The funny thing is that my brother doesn't even watch Seinfeld that often.

One of the clients that I work with was expecting a baby. She disappeared for a couple of weeks and then called my boss to announce that she had the baby and would stop by our place of business so we could all see her new baby. When she arrived, the baby was completely covered with a blanket. Everyone gathered around to see the unvieling of the baby. Then she uncovered the baby and all the smiles on everyone's faces just seem to fade to horror. It was the ugliest baby we've ever seen, but no one said a word. The proud mother was smiling and ga gaing all over her baby. She offered to let everyone hold the baby. A couple people did out of pitty I think, but most everyone told the mother that they had to get back to work. After she left the building, my boss turned to me and said, "Did you ever see that one episode of Seinfeld"? I just laughed and walked by to my office. We automatically knew what each another was already thinking without having to even talk about it.
