A while ago Ryan and I had a conversation about stuff that always seems to happen in movies but never in real life. Here's a sample:
People spitting out their water/beverage whenever someone says or does something surprising.
Quoting poetry, or quoting poetry to someone and having them recognize and recite the poem with you.
People doing double or triple takes.
Looking for someone else in a crowd and seeing several people who look just like the person you are looking for, but not realizing it's not the right person until you grab their shoulder and turn them around.
Hearing thunder and then getting stuck one second later in a huge downpour. (Maybe I've just never lived in a climate where this happens.)
If there's a grocery bag, there's always a baguette in it.
The cars are always clean.
Anyone have anything else to add?
