However, I've never seen it presented as something that *might* happen. No, it's always "they'll say [some stupid and annoying thing]", as though the future is as solid as the past. And there's no sense of scale. Will it be a lot of people on the Other Side, or just one or two cherished examples?
I realize this might count as a self-negating complaint. After all, people might stop making up annoyances and recounting them, and I'd be glad if that's how it happened. However, I count that as unlikely, and I haven't seen mention elsewhere of this habit.
Besides, the universe will supply you with more and better stupidity than you can possibly imagine.
