|The WORST finger!|
We learn at a young age how much the MIDDLE sucks. Little kids play “Monkey in the MIDDLE,” not “Lucky Person in the MIDDLE.” And who wants to be called “MIDDLE of the road?” It’s certainly not the greatest thing to be. It’s also the place where you find dead squirrels and other road kill.
|The WORST place to be!|
Lots of people have a MIDDLE name, but do they ever use it? You can know someone their entire life and never know they even have a MIDDLE name, let alone what it is. (Mine is Steven, just for the record.) A name is important, but a MIDDLE name is just an afterthought.
What about the MIDDLE finger? Everyone knows it’s the worst finger. In fact, it’s so infamous you can even drop the MIDDLE and still know which finger people are referring to.
|The WORST seat!|
Runners don’t strive to finish in the MIDDLE of the pack, business people don’t dream of reaching MIDDLE Management and being MIDDLE Income. No one looks forward to the day they become MIDDLE aged. And who are people always trying to eliminate? That’s right -- the MIDDLE man!
Finally, it’s common practice to conclude a list like this by saying “Last, but not least,” which I WILL NOT do. It only proves that even being last can be better than being in the MIDDLE.
