I’ve been annoying people for a long time now. From the moment I started kicking in my mom’s belly to popping the plastic letter people in kindergarten to jumping on my bed in first grade to annoying 4 siblings, to annoying roommates and now my co-workers and family members, I’ve had a long illustrious career of annoying people. But three years ago, I got tired of annoying the same old people, and decided that I needed to make a change. Twitter wasn’t the global phenomenon that it is today, Facebook was more annoying to me that I was to it, and I just felt like I wasn’t getting through to annoying people on a large enough scale.
Then an idea popped into my head, and I ignored it for a while, because most of mine are so laaammme. Then, another much lamer idea came to me, and I decided that this was the one. A 900 number. Most of the kids today don’t know what these are because smart phones, but back in the day, people actually paid money to call people. Most of them were for calls of ill repute, but some were for tips on video games or other things like information. Google of course replace that, but my idea, people calling in to complain then allowing the customer service rep to complain right back. It is still in the works because I’m lazy and also don’t know if 900 numbers exist, but in its place I decided to do a lame blog instead.
So I wrote all the stuff I was bitter about and got 30 views the first day. Mostly my co-workers and myself. I toiled on for about 8 months until I figured out that there were other readers on WordPress that would read other peoples blogs and fast forward to about a week ago and I got my 100,000th view on this blog. I was going to celebrate by giving the 100,000th viewer $100,000 but I was on vacation at the time, and I’m not sure who it was. If you are out there, feel free to call my 900 number and I will send you the check.
On a much bitter note, I would like to thank myself for all the hard work of getting to this point of annoying so many people. Also, I’m just kidding. What is hard work?
