Fun Fact: I am in the movie Jaws. Not as an actor, no as in my name. And it might be at one of the scariest parts. If you don't believe me, watch this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDs5a0BcEzY Other than this obscure fact about my name is in the first ever summer blockbuster, and the runaway success of … Continue reading Famous Relatives Bitter Friday Giftures

Messenger Boy Bitter Friday Giftures

I've had a few jobs in my days as a person. The first one I had was a back yard maintenance crewperson for a Midwestern bank executive and his wife. They provided room and board from ages 0 to 18. Sometimes they would pay me $10 for the lawn mowing. Sometimes they would hug me, … Continue reading Messenger Boy Bitter Friday Giftures

Gum Confident Bitter Friday Giftures

I was one of the last people to watch a movie in a theater before the pandemic thing started 5 years ago. I remember it so clearly, because it was March 13th, maybe a couple of days after the NBA shut down. It was on Friday the 13th and the theater had maybe 6 people … Continue reading Gum Confident Bitter Friday Giftures

The Bitter Spouse that Nobody Likes

It's weird how when I was growing up, I didn't hear much about illnesses other than colds, flus and maybe typhoid fever. Probably because as a kid, I hadn't started a job, had kids myself, or learned about debt, taxes and death. But as soon as I started experiencing real stress, like making sure I … Continue reading The Bitter Spouse that Nobody Likes

Road Trippin Bitter Friday Giftures

The road trip movie is a standard Hollywood movie right of passage. Besides a couple of exceptions, (Vacation, Tommy Boy, Dumb and Dumber) they are pretty formulaic and kind of an excuse for terrible and absurd things to happen. Then at the end of the horrific trip, the participants are supposed to have learned something … Continue reading Road Trippin Bitter Friday Giftures

Gas Station Bitter Friday Giftures

For all six of you who follow me regularly, you might have noticed that I was MIA last week. That's because I was sequestered by my company to go on a long business trip.

Masterclass Bitter Friday Giftures

You know that college is pretty useless right? Don't believe me? Just take a look at just two examples I have, both in my own family, and I will prove it. (Isn't that what science teaches us? That we have to prove things?) First example is me. I went dutifully for 5 years to college. … Continue reading Masterclass Bitter Friday Giftures

Pain in the Neck Bitter Friday Giftures

My neck has done some heavy lifting throughout my life. And not by choice. By obligation. It's connected my low functioning brain connected to rest of me. It's done a lot of swiveling back and forth between two computer screens and been pushed back and forth on roller coasters. It's been shaved thousands of time … Continue reading Pain in the Neck Bitter Friday Giftures

Failing Vision Bitter Friday Giftures

I'm pretty bitter about my vision. You see, from about my sophomore year in high school until I was 33, I wore glasses. I tried contacts once, but I wasn't a fan of sticking things in my eye and lost the desire for them really fast. Then, as a gift for me living and taking … Continue reading Failing Vision Bitter Friday Giftures

Cancellation Bitterness

When I was growing up, I watched a lot of TV. My favorite cartoon was Transformers, but I watched a lot of different show. I would always get really excited about some and then in the summer, I would recognize that they would start showing reruns of the shows I already watched, and I would … Continue reading Cancellation Bitterness

5G Bitter Friday Giftures

There was a story in the news yesterday and today about a person who won $26 million in lottery. That would be a happy day right? Most of the time, yes. Unfortunately, there was a tiny little problem. The winner didn't turn in the ticket...and then didn't turn in the ticket...and then forgot to turn … Continue reading 5G Bitter Friday Giftures

Funny Bitter Friday Giftures

This week I got a surprise call from a former co-worker who I would always commiserate with about what freaking idiots we worked with, and how we were always going find a way out of the prison that we worked at. I couldn't get out of the job, because I didn't think I had any … Continue reading Funny Bitter Friday Giftures

Jet Plane Bitter Friday Giftures

I know it seems like everything is risky out there these days, but I'm doing something really crazy. I'm going on a vacation. Which means I'm going to get on a Jet Plane. But don't tell anyone, because then they might go visit my house in um...Las Vegas or something. And they might try to … Continue reading Jet Plane Bitter Friday Giftures

Empath Bitter Friday Giftures

Before I know much about what empath's were, I thought they were just people that read tarot cards and told you what your pet was saying. The more I see about them though, the more I think I'm one of them. I don't know if I meet every single one of the 15 requirements that … Continue reading Empath Bitter Friday Giftures

48 Things I’m Bitter About

Mirrors are such liars. I wake up every morning knowing that I am handsome and funny like Steve Carell, but as soon as I look in the mirror, I see this strange, weird, bitter older looking guy. So they are pretty useless and bad liars. It's this time of year, that I finally realize that … Continue reading 48 Things I’m Bitter About

April Fool Bitter Friday Giftures

Other than the my birthday and Christmas, April Fool's Day is probably my favorite day of the year. It was especially awesome back in the day when the company I worked for had year end on March 31st, which meant we often had to stay until really late pretending to work or something. So the … Continue reading April Fool Bitter Friday Giftures

Bitter Book Bitterness

Recently, I did a blog post about the fact that I've been blogging for 9 years now. Which seems crazy, because I barely have the attention span of a gnat. This blog is older than most gnats. Except for that gnat that looks like Prince Phillip. You might think that I've done nothing else in … Continue reading Bitter Book Bitterness

Mascot Bitter Friday Giftures

Why do you think March Madness the ultimate time of year for so many people? Well, some say it is for college basketball. You know, the crazy upsets, the buzzer beaters and the nail biting games. Or it could be the one-in-a-million shot that you could accidentally fill out a Final Four bracket in your … Continue reading Mascot Bitter Friday Giftures
