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.

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

Cancellation Bitter Friday Giftures

  Baseball is kind of a weird sport. The majors actually start in late March, which is technically spring, in some places, but in places like Chicago, and Minnesota and Milwaukee (which all have major league teams) not so much every year. Baseball depends on not having weather issues. Well, in the little leagues, where … Continue reading Cancellation Bitter Friday Giftures

Job Store Bitterness

  I grew up in South Dakota, which is basically a black hole for anything cool, including me. I blame the fact that I am the world's leastest cool person on growing up there. Man, did we struggle to come up with entertaining things to do for fun. We got tired of tipping all the … Continue reading Job Store Bitterness

Baseball Bitter Friday Giftures

  When I was growing up, baseball was my favorite sport...until I got hit in the gut with a fastball and had a fear of a little tiny ball going 60-100 miles an hour speeding right at me. I also realized that baseball was a lot of just standing around watching a pitcher throw to … Continue reading Baseball Bitter Friday Giftures

Are you a Bozo Bitterness

When I was younger and really bored I used to watch WGN in Chicago. In the mornings, they had this show that included Bozo the Clown and he would have kids on the show. They had this game that challenged kids to throw ping pongs into big buckets and the farther they went, the better … Continue reading Are you a Bozo Bitterness

Dwight Shrute Bitterness

As you all should know, I am a huge fan of The Office. Ever since I saw the episode where the people of Dunder Mifflin Scranton go to the lake for the Beach Games while Michael sneakily tries to pick his replacement, I was hooked. My favorite part was when Dwight picks his team and … Continue reading Dwight Shrute Bitterness

Rubik’s Cube Bitterness

I grew up in the 80's, which was a very colorful time. We moved from New York to South Dakota right as the country was transitioning from disco to MTV. Micheal Jackson was at the peak of his powers, and I was finally starting to become a human (I don't remember much before I was … Continue reading Rubik’s Cube Bitterness

Down into the Sink Hole

You should probably expect all my writing these days to focus on the bitterness of job hunting and how horrible it is, since it is taking all my focus. So whether I say it straight out or not, everything I am bitter about is either that or a metaphor for that. A few weeks ago, … Continue reading Down into the Sink Hole

Seven Years Bitter Luck

I'm usually pretty terrible at remembering anniversaries, which is why I decided to get married in 2000, so I would always know how many years I've been married. It has been pretty foolproof, and the end of summer date is also good, so we can always go on a chill date, while we make fun … Continue reading Seven Years Bitter Luck

Bitter Vacation Absence

I was reading this article about a guy that works for Nintendo. He is the creator of Super Smash Bros., one of Nintendo's most popular games. I don't know if it mentioned how old he was, but this guy has an insane passion for working on this game. Basically it has been his life's work … Continue reading Bitter Vacation Absence

Bitter Business Bureau

When we moved into this house about a year ago, we had to furnish it. Of course, we got the most important things first, the couch, TV, and fridge, which I have spent the most amount of time using. I guess we also got a table, our old furniture, and bed, but those weren't really … Continue reading Bitter Business Bureau

BitterTine’s Day Bitter Friday Giftures

  I was talking to my wife the other day and I was comparing the days of the week to the months of the year. For the most part, it makes sense. January is definitely like Monday. Everyone is hungover from the holidays and the bitterness of family and togetherness and rage of the weekend … Continue reading BitterTine’s Day Bitter Friday Giftures

Yes, it is Sunday afternoon and you have nothing else to do. TV is getting old and you are tired of the kids. Escape to the computer room so you can watch the news. But not the same, boring, dull stuff that you keep seeing on your computer screen, but the entertaining, yet bitter news … Continue reading Bitter News from the Couch #8
