Are these the superhero powers we need?
These budget superheroes won’t save the world, but they may save you from petty annoyances.
They won’t defeat evil, but they’ll fold sheets faster than they’ve ever been folded before.
They are definitely on the side of good (enough).
Some mediocre superpowers include:
I can interpret every captcha.
Stopping people from stubbing their toes.
I can fold a fitted sheet.
I make everyone’s flash drives go in the right way the first time.
Finding specific/lost things, like your car keys or your TV remote.
I stand outside the supermarket preemptively give people a quarter and take their carts back, so they don’t have to deal with the fear of interacting with a stranger who offers to trade them a quarter for their cart.
I know which station everyone sitting on the train will get off at, so I can tell you who to stand in front of to be ready to get their place.
Adding time to your parking meter.
On SuperHero Day, what’s your superpower?
