John Wick Bitterness

I've never understood the Phone wars (Samsung v. Iphone) or the mobile network wars (T-Mobile v. ATT v. Verizon v. Sprint). At this point all of them are pretty much the same and do about the same thing. I think they all pretty much suck at phone calls (which is fine because I don't call … Continue reading John Wick Bitterness

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

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

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

Bitter Tuesday Giftures

  You guys have no idea how bitter I am right now. For all those people that have followed me from the beginning, (absolutely none of you) I've written 1000+ posts about things that made me bitter. I've written about everything from the tiniest irritation to absolutely soul-crushing of not having a job for the … Continue reading Bitter Tuesday 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
