Venmo Bitter Friday Giftures

  There is a social media app out there that I think many of you are missing out on.  On the surface you might think that Venmo is just another way to pay people without actually paying them, you would be wrong. In fact, if you are on Instagram mostly just to look at other … Continue reading Venmo Bitter Friday Giftures

Tennis Match Bitterness

Back in the day when computers first came out, one of the first video games that came out  was a game called Pong. I was a little too young, so I didn't really understand "computer games", but apparently it was a BIG thing. It was very similar to tennis and if you know anything about … Continue reading Tennis Match Bitterness

Short Week Bitter Friday Giftures

  Remember all the way back to Monday? Remember how most of us had Labor Day off? It seems like so long ago but we decided not to labor ironically. The reason why it seems so long ago, is because of this weird phenomenon where those shorter weeks we get from holidays seem longer because … Continue reading Short Week Bitter Friday Giftures

3 PM Afternoon Crash Bitter Friday Giftures

  Based on recent trends, or maybe just what I've noticed,  I think the human body seems to naturally shut down around 3 pm. I assume most people, like me have finished their really important work by 10 am, had lunch by 12 or 1 pm and are just biding their time until 5 pm. … Continue reading 3 PM Afternoon Crash Bitter Friday Giftures

Bitter Dream House

Most of the spring and summer when I was unemployed, I dreamed up different ways to pay the bills. Most of them involved the lottery, Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes or starting a very successful YouTube channel. They were all long shots, but at the time, so was getting an interview that would actually seem like a … Continue reading Bitter Dream House

Burning Man Bitter Friday Giftures

  Humans aren't very good at learning lessons. I should know, I'm one of them. You would think that after living in my house for over a year now, I would have figured out that the glasses are in one cabinet, and plates are in another, but I continually reach for the wrong one almost … Continue reading Burning Man Bitter Friday Giftures

Party Planning Committee Bitter Friday Giftures

  As many know about me, I'm a huge Office fan. I've watched the entire series at least 6 times and watch marathons on TV whenever I see them.  One the big parts of the Office is the party planning committee, vital to the many parties that take place at Dunder Mifflin.  Whether it is … Continue reading Party Planning Committee Bitter Friday Giftures

Too Many Tabs Open Bitterness

When I was growing up my world wide web consisted of the spiders in the backyard. Okay maybe it was a few other places too, but essentially my world was as far as I could see, so my yard, the grocery store and maybe Grandma's house once a year. It wasn't until we packed up … Continue reading Too Many Tabs Open Bitterness

Sleep Deprivation Bitterness

I've mastered many things over the years. I'm really good at Fridays. I have my routine of doing Bitter Friday Giftures every week, regardless of how busy I might be. I also take the burden of having dinner planned every single Friday. It might seem like everyone else's plan of having pizza, but that isn't … Continue reading Sleep Deprivation Bitterness

Football Season Bitter Friday Giftures

  Last night, I was sitting on the couch, relaxing from the bitter day of work I almost always have, and my son comes tromping in from football practice. As always, he left a trail of things leading up to himself, so even an incompetent detective like Inspector Clouseau could find him. He drops his … Continue reading Football Season Bitter Friday Giftures

It Doesn’t Get Better

  Remember a while ago when there was an ad campaign about when you get older, life gets better? I don't really remember it on TV. In fact, the reason I do  remember it, is because Oscar on the Office tried to do a little video himself and it hilariously got hijacked by everyone else … Continue reading It Doesn’t Get Better

Communication is the Key to Bitterness

I was listening to someone talk about things the other day. When you do that, sometimes you actually learn things, which for me is a really bad idea. You know how they say a little knowledge about something is a bad thing? That applies to me. All of a sudden, I start acting like I'm … Continue reading Communication is the Key to Bitterness

Crystal Cloudy Bitter Friday Giftures

  People have been trying to teach me a lot of stuff lately. Obviously when you start a new job, they have to teach you the ways of the Jedi, and or, the ways the company work and what you are supposed to do every day. The other day, my wife was telling me that … Continue reading Crystal Cloudy Bitter Friday Giftures

Interviewing Bitter Friday Giftures

  I don't normally get too political, but when that stuff is crammed down your throat on TV on every single channel, all day long, you have to have an opinion. Not necessarily on one side of an issue or another, but some sort of opinion. Whether that opinion is that our country is a … Continue reading Interviewing Bitter Friday Giftures

Insuring Bitter Saturday Giftures

  Who knew that this guy would ever have a job again? Who knew that not only would he be working in an industry he used to think was the biggest scam? That's right, I work in insurance now. Don't worry though, I don't actually do anything with your accounts; that would be scary. No, … Continue reading Insuring Bitter Saturday Giftures

Playtime is over Bitter Friday Giftures

  It's been really fun the last six months sitting around the house, applying for jobs, getting prepared for interviews, getting fun questions from people like, "How's the job search going?" and "Have you found any leads?" or "Tell me a little about about yourself" and "Why do you think you are the best person … Continue reading Playtime is over Bitter Friday Giftures

Weather or Not Bitter Friday Giftures

  For some reason, Al Roker seems to be getting more attention this year. Yeah, his glasses are weird colors and he is extremely short compared to his co-workers, but that doesn't seem to be it. It's because he is a meteorologist on the Today show and well, the weather has been a little wackadoodle … Continue reading Weather or Not Bitter Friday Giftures

Best Time of the Year Bitter Friday Giftures

  This week is my favorite of the year. Many people love December and all its holidays. Others love Thanksgiving and the chance to eat lots of food, shop and be with family. Others love Valentine's Day (just kidding, no one loves Valentine's Day, ironically). Some love the summertime for sun, sand, good weather and … Continue reading Best Time of the Year Bitter Friday Giftures
