We spend the last century on the look out for wee Green Men, and the sods just blaze right on by us with better places to be. We should have foreseen this, I'm sure everyone's familiar with the idea that any aliens humanity met would be unimaginably more advanced than ourselves, and that they'd treat us like Empires of old treated the natives in their colonies, and dominate and annihilate us. But that's an outlier, because contempt usually just leads to people getting ignored and sidelined for not being fit, interesting or funny enough.
We're the boring, fat, wankers of the universe, and in typical podgy idiot fashion, we're the last ones to know.
