Is there a logical fallacy/cognitive bias that addresses why we are more concerned with a small number of incidents happening in close proximity to each other than a larger number of isolated incidents?
The example that comes to mind is gun control and school shootings. Anyone's opinion notwithstanding, discussions on gun control are more common nationally if a dozen or so people are killed in one shooting, but not as often if the same number or a larger are killed in separate places, or over a longer time.
YSK that your husband-to-be is your “fiancé” and your wife-to-be is your “fiancée”
This seems to be a very common spelling error I've noticed, which is very rarely picked up on. It seems to be misspelt about 90% of the time and usually occurs with men referring to their future wives as their 'fiancé'.
"My fiancé is the greatest! I can't wait to make him my husband!"
"My fiancée is the greatest! I can't wait to make her my wife!"

LPT: When going to the hardware store always bring what you’re trying to replace.
Hardware stores are filled with countless odds and ends that fit so many different categories, along with multiple variations of the same product. Instead of spending time trying to explain what the item does or looks like, just bring in the broken one of whatever needs replaced. How you measure something will probably be off from the actual measurements, even an 1/8 of an inch can matter. If it's too big to carry in, try and take a picture. Saves time at the store, and potentially the another trip!
