What Siencumstances have YOU been in?

Most of us have had bad break-ups, forgot where we parked our car, waited forever for a seat in a restaurant, or many of the other more common situations featured on the show. But some of the other more obscure storylines that Jerry and the other creators thought of have surprised us because perhaps we thought they had only happened to ourselves until we saw them presented on the show. These are the ones that Jimmy has always appreciated most.

So Jimmy was just wondering what sorts of "odd" Seinfeld predicaments have others experienced which are unusual or unknown to most other people. Not horse and buggy rides, getting a car stolen, or anything of that nature. But rather strange phenomenons that most people don't ever think of or talk about. For example: Having a summer best friend and a winter best friend... or having both parents talking to you on two different telephones at the same time, etc.

Jimmy once liked a girl in junior high school who everybody else hated for some unknown reason. Most girls hated her, and the guys thought she was nasty and called her names behind her back. But she was cute as hell... and Jimmy found out that she also like him as well. But because Jimmy was 14 years-old and didn't want to be banished from junior high-society, he avoided her and never became involved with her, or ever admitted liking her to anyone. This is reminisent of Jerry's "loser" girlfriend, Ellen, in The Van Buren Boys.

Another one is Jimmy's inability to find anything good, funny, or entertaining about Monty Python. It sucked! But everybody else loved this nonsensical, indecipherable show. When Jimmy saw Elaine's frustration with everybody else loving The English Patient, Jimmy could totally relate to the story concept.

My next door neighbors are an old couple who are the German version of Estelle and Frank Costanza. Especially the Mrs. occasionally goes into her Estelle impression and we hear her shrill voice all the way across the yard. It's hysterical! It's Serenity Now all over again.

not only do my parents have this infuriatingly annoying habit of talking to me on separate phones when they call, but if i'm at their house, and need to make an uber-important call -- to the bank, say, or the insurance adjuster -- mom will listen in, to make sure i don't forget anything. sometimes this is just as well, since she's the most organized person i know, and i, on the other hand, am far from it. but this predicament innevitably leads to embarrassing situations, such as the following...

Bank: Yes, Mr. Gack, I'm calling on behalf of the First Extortive Bank of Canada. How are you today?

Me: Fine, thanks. How much do you want?

Bank: Oh, I'd say about a thousand should do it.

Me: Good, great. Go for it.

Bank: Thank you for your cooperation, Mr. Gack. Also, while I have you on the phone, our computers tell us that even though you're all paid up on your student loan account, we need more money anyway.

Me: The thousand, that's not good enough?

Bank: We're a bank, Mr. Gack.

Me: Right, right. Yeah, go ahead.

Bank: Shall we say, another five hundred?

Me: Sigh. Sure. Okay. Take it.

Bank: Very good, Mr. Gack. You're one of our smarter clients.

Me: So we're about finished then?

Bank: Yes. Just let me go over these figures again, for confirmation. It's the original thousand, plus the additional five hundred.

Me: Okay. Fine.

Bank: Plus interest.

Me: Interest on what?

Bank: Don't make this hard on yourself, Mr. Gack.

Me: Yeah, yeah, you're right. Sorry.

Bank: Thank you again for your understanding, Mr. Gack.

Mom: Ask them about that floating interest rate that was on your last statement.

Me: Uh... I think you just did, mom.



This is my life.


And it's all true!

... and stay on Biscayne Blvd!

Yeah, Jimmy's parents are the Seinfelds. Jimmys' dad has never thrown anything away, and Jimmy's mom has never stepped one foot in any water. And that's no lie!

Samething that happens to Jimmy with the girl everybody didn't like. I was talking a lot to this girl that I thought was goodlooking, but I wasn't sure if she was. Then for some reason my friend started pointing her at the lunch table, and they started saying : damn, look at that girl, she so ugly, look at her nose, ahh yuukk.

Eversince that day i stop talking to her. And it's a mix of The Van Buren Boys with The Big Salad. Cuz one of the guys, he finds girl attractive that or TOTALLY NOT in my opinion, he once show me the picture of is girlfriend who he thought was "fuckin good looking", and lemme tell you that: she ain't no beauty. So I felt like Jerry when Newman told him the girl was not good looking, "NOT GOODLOOKING ENUFF??" lol

My life is full of Seincumstances. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I must admit I've bought "cheap" gifts for people in hopes that they wouldn't notice. I've also given fake numbers to people that I didn't really want to talk to, just because I'm nice and didn't want to tell them there was no chance I was going to call them. Laughing

I once got two candybars from a vending machine since one was dangling there already.

At work I forgot my radio and a friend let me borrow his. After I clocked out at the end of the day I reset all his presets to christian rock. He was VERRY pissed off. Laughing
