Driver’s License Bitterness

I grew up in South Dakota, so I've been driving a motorized vehicle since I was 14. I'm quite proud of the fact that I got my first citation in a Chevy Citation before most of you were even thinking about driving. I was driving on what the kids called the Loop in junior high … Continue reading Driver’s License Bitterness


Food Vs. Clothes Bitterness

The nice thing about having a bitter blog is that you always have something to write about. The bad thing about a bitter blog is that you always have something to write about. I could have choosen to write about a dozen things this morning because oh my gosh it is freaking Monday, after a … Continue reading Food Vs. Clothes Bitterness

Casual Friday Giftures

  It's been a long week. Every single day I've had to wear clothes to work. Not jammies, not shorts, actual clothes. I don't know what the deal is with strict dress codes around the workplace these days, but this needs to stops. I don't know why I have to change when I get home. … Continue reading Casual Friday Giftures

The Bitter Anniversary of Blog Hill Battle

I've seen things people. Six years ago, I was just a beat down customer service agent, boiling inside with all kinds of bitterness. I had had enough of talking on the phone, having unreliable co-workers and working in a toxic atmosphere. Okay, most of the toxicity was me, but you know, it was everyone that … Continue reading The Bitter Anniversary of Blog Hill Battle

Make up bitterness

I have a daughter. You might not know that because I don't mention her much. She is really shy with the media, so I don't get to interview her very much. She is kind of elusive that way, so most of what you get on her is speculation from other media outlets and pictures that … Continue reading Make up bitterness

Learning the Bad Behavior from Sports

I grew up on sports. It's hard to imagine, but when I was young I was in good shape. I was even taller than the average person from about 7th grade on. Until my freshman year of college, I was like 4% body fat. Then my metabolism slowed, but my eating did not. It was … Continue reading Learning the Bad Behavior from Sports

Call it a Comeback Bitter Friday Giftures

  You know that expression, "nothing bad ever really goes away"? Probably not, because I just made it up. Anyways, winter is so dumb. Whoever made it up just likes to mess with people. We had a pretty mild winter, like 50 degrees most of it, until the Groundhog poked his stupid face up and … Continue reading Call it a Comeback Bitter Friday Giftures

Super Straw Friday Giftures

  I'm finally starting to watch Parks And Rec, by the recommendation of just about everyone, and you know for a fact it isn't because of Leslie Knope. Way to optomistic, way too friendly, way too much of a hard worker. Obviously it is for Ron Swanson and Andy. Ron is the perfect example and … Continue reading Super Straw Friday Giftures

Bitter Long Legs

I was attending another function as I am loathe to do because usually functions have to do with interacting with other human people, and I was sitting down like normal (standing is for athletes and psychopaths). I'm 6'1, so not that tall, but tall enough that I have tall people problems. I have to reach … Continue reading Bitter Long Legs

Debendable Ben – The Snow MVP

I forged my bitterness in the cold snow and ice of South Dakota. I grew up there, and it wasn't a fun place, especially in the winter. I've mentioned many times on this blog, but not recently, that one time when I was in 3rd grade, it got to -80 F wind chill and they … Continue reading Debendable Ben – The Snow MVP

Towel A Ban Bitter Friday Giftures

  Today, I'm going to go all Seinfeld on you. I know it similar to some of the plots of many of the Seinfeld shows, but who is in charge of the automatic towel dispensers in the bathroom? Some of them roll out a red carpet below your feet before they stop dispensing. Others, like … Continue reading Towel A Ban Bitter Friday Giftures

Obey My Commands!

It's Valentine's Day here on the BBB. Well, I guess it is also other places too, but I'm not sure. We do a lot of things on Valentine's around here. Like complain about love and hearts, and candy and flowers and we wonder why the heck they don't make a bigger deal about National Pizza … Continue reading Obey My Commands!

Animal Kingdom Bitterness

As a marketer at heart, I'm always thinking about my audience. (Just so you know, that means no one is really a person to me, just a target market. IE, my mom isn't my mom, just a part of the female senior demographic.) For pretty much the almost 6 years I've been doing this blog, … Continue reading Animal Kingdom Bitterness

We are supposed to be uncomfortable

Who loves motivational speakers/speaking? Well not me of course. I just love how much time we as a society spend on motivational speaking. I've probably heard a thousand speeches between work, and movies and YouTube videos and the same thing happens every time.  A speaker gets up, tells you how miserable your life is because … Continue reading We are supposed to be uncomfortable

Super Bowl of Chili

Today is the big game! Get your chili, your cheesy fries, and your couch ready because football's ultimate game is today. We could talk about the millions of pounds of food consumed. We could talk about all the millions of dollars spent on gambling and prop bets (those weird ones like what color will Justin … Continue reading Super Bowl of Chili

Pizza Better for you than cereal

The radio. Often you are forced to listen to it in your car because you can't really do anything else. You're not allowed to text, or play video games, and reading books seems to be out of the question. It's kind of uncool that we aren't even allowed to sleep while we are driving. It … Continue reading Pizza Better for you than cereal

Standing Desk Only

Let's play a little Jeopardy, which I never do, because you have to think. TV is not meant to make you think. It should entertain you, distract you, give you some background when you are playing games on your phone, but it should never make you think. That's why Jeopardy is for old people that … Continue reading Standing Desk Only
