Open that complaint box, you’ll find your excuses there


excuse-invalid“You’re too late…this offer is closed. Besides, you’ve cancelled twice on the subscription so I wouldn’t let you back in anyway.”

As I was reading this email, I started to get pissed off. ‘Oh, so he’s really not going to take my money…RIGHT!!’ I muttered to myself.

Right he was…and he was dead serious.Continue reading

The customer is always right…except when they’re clueless


soup-nazi“You must not be very smart!”

That was what the customer shot at me when I worked for a mail order catalog about 20 years ago.

So this tool is trying to order something, and I tell him the item is out of stock and is back-ordered.

That wasn’t what he wanted to hear.Continue reading

Are you waiting for Godot??


waiting-for-godot“Nothing to be done.” Vladimir takes up the thought loftily.

Vladimir and Estragon, two men ‘determined’ and on a ‘mission’…

a mission to wait for the man (?)…the myth (?)…the legend (?)…Godot.

Who is Godot, you ask?? I do not know…and perhaps neither do they.Continue reading

Don’t Procrastinate Until it’s Two Thirty


toothacheMy dentist stared at the X-RAY while calmly humming a song to himself, then casually turned to me and said:

“Yeah, this has to come out.”

‘S%#@.’ I thought to myself. Part of me was nervous and bummed. The other part of me was relieved.

Bummed because, of course, I was about to lose a molar in the back of my mouth. Relieved because I was about to be freed from some of the most intense pain I’ve ever felt.

The dreaded toothache…but not just any toothache…Continue reading

Jackaninnys, Credit Cards and Game of Thrones


jackassI was going to quote this jackass below (as I sometimes do) but today I decided not to give him the press.

Here is the whining in a nutshell:

Guy bitches to me that even though he can get a free trial of an autoresponder email service and my free bonus (that will actually help him to use said autoresponder and actually make some money…AND…he can keep the bonus even if he doesn’t want to use the service) he is ‘not willing’ to put in his credit card info to start the trial.

THIS, my esteemed friends, is the loser mentality.

In reality, he is not willing to do ANYTHING to change his current situation.


Because he is not living in reality.Continue reading

Most lottery players don’t want the money. That’s why they play…

That’s quite a title, isn’t it?

It’s true.

Yep…Lottery players don’t really want the money.

Let me explain…

Stop Complaining and Start Working

stop complaining

Stop complaining if you spend your free time watching Netflix…

Was talking to a guy the other day when I was out and he said something interesting:

“Donald Trump was given all his money.”

Oh here we go.

Yes, Trump inherited a sizable sum of money from everything I’ve read…although nowhere even close to what he is worth now.

‘So what’s your point?” I asked.

“That’s the only way you get wealthy.” the guy answered.

I just shook my head.Continue reading

Does Positive Thinking Really Work? Maybe Not

does positive thinking really work

Does positive thinking really work? Some research suggests not in the way society typically applies it

We hear it and read about it all the time.

The power of positive thinking.

Most of it centers around affirmations we’re supposed to tell ourselves:

‘I am doing this.’

‘I am a good parent.’

‘I am successful.’

It’s the process of affirming or declaring something to be, if you will.

We’ve all also had those moments when we try to pump ourselves up for a task or challenge ahead:

‘I know I can do this.’

But does positive thinking really work??

Some researchers say no…Continue reading

Don’t Wait…You’re Ready

You Screwed it Up Again…and It’s OK


you screwed it upThey are all surprised you screwed it up.

You made a mistake.

Maybe you betrayed a friend.

Maybe you committed a criminal act.

Maybe you even committed adultery.

Maybe you even considered ending it all.

People are shocked you did the ‘unthinkable’. But maybe those very people threw stones with a vengeance…and a guilt.

We’re all so frickin’ concerned and horrified we might screw the pooch. Crash and burn. Commit an error.  Mess it up. Royally f#%$ it up.

The universe laughs at this. The universe laughs at you.

Why?Continue reading
