You know, if you watched sitcoms, you'd believe that the three most common life events are:
1) the sudden appearance of an adorable blond child as a long-term housemate
2) next-door neighbor making major, life-altering confession (is pregnant, is eloping, uses drugs, or is pregnant with a drug-using baby with AIDS and is running away with father)
3) Injury-trauma induced global amnesia
That's all, no rant, just vocalizing.
