Welcome back on the most bitter of days. A Tuesday (worst day of the week) after a holiday (always more work to make up for) after a bitter summer(now begins the bitter fall). Today, I thought I would try something new. If you have ever read my About Page, you know that the reason why I founded this blog was an idea I came up with one day at work way back in 2012(you know, the year the world was supposed to end). I was extremely bitter about angry and bitter people calling us at work and expressedd my feelings with my co-workers. This lead my brilliant, yet still unattempted idea where I would create a 1-900 number (remember when they used to do those?) where bitter and angry people would call bitter phone representatives on the phone for a certain amount of money per minute. They would be able to complain about their day to the rep, and of course the rep would be able to complain back to the phoner. In the end, maybe something gets resovled or maybe something doesn’t. I didn’t really care. I just knew that I would be getting all the money from all the talking. And if they did have a complaint, well, that would be a 1-900 number too. So in the end, I win. This lead my co-workers to start calling me Bitter Ben and telling me I should start a blog. They never thought I would do it, and of course, I had to prove them wrong. So here you are reading some crap, because of a challenge someone put forth to me.
Cult Followers, both real bitter like me or not, let’s treat today’s post like it is my 1-900 line. Comment me up and tell me what you are bitter about. It can be anything from the smallest complaint to the bitterest rant, First world problem or real one. I will be your pretend therapist, or pretend friend or pretend 1-900-line guy. Whatever. You will get whatever it is that you are bitter about off your chest, or brain or shoulders or whatever you carry heavy loads with. If you have nothing, then you are lying or in complete denial. The comment lines are open, call now and you will recieve a free bitter retort to your complaint or question.
If this is something people want to do on the reg, I will be able to sense it by your bitter enthusiasm, or bitter disinterest. If there is interest, then I might do it more. If not, I will be bitter that I don’t have a regular post that is easy to do and get comments. And I will be bitter at you all. My post fodder for me in the end anyway.
So let me start by saying that what I am bitter about today is what I mentioned above. Summer was a bitter time and now I have a bitter fall to look forward to.
Give me your worst, bitter people!
