Quotes For People Who Just Can't Be Bothered Today

Okay, this might sound crazy, but have you ever wondered what your catchphrase would be if someone turned you into an action figure?

I'm serious. If you were to suddenly do something worthwhile that totally warranted a company manufacturing a toy version of yourself for kids, complete with accessories and a tell-tale catchphrase, what would it be?

Personally, I used to think mine would be something cool, maybe even a little bad ass. But now I've come to the very sobering conclusion that it would almost definitely be something along the lines of, "Not my problem."

See, the thing about me is I am incredibly lazy, and very prone to pawning responsibility off to someone else.


Unless I know something absolutely, 100 percent needs to be done this very second, I will almost definitely put it off.

Possibly forever, if it happens to be so unimportant it slips my mind completely.

And, as previously mentioned, I've really started catching myself saying "not my problem" a lot more than usual.


Coffee stains on the counter? Not my problem. Empty toilet paper roll? Not my problem. Everything inside of the fridge just fell and is now definitely going to spill out in avalanche-like fashion if I open the door? Not my problem.

But you know what is a problem? More often than not, the "next person" I leave to deal with this stuff is almost always me.

So I guess my catchphrase should really be, "Not my problem...yet."
