  • Unprofessional Emails

    I recently received 2 emails I’d classify as unprofessional, but for different reasons. The first was from a choreographer soliciting business. My first problem with the email is that it was a forwarded email. I could tell because it was indented with a blue line next to it, see the picture if you don’t know […]

  • Annoyed by Facebook Groups

    I’m kind of annoyed by Facebook Groups. I guess it’s not really the groups, but the fact that someone can add me to one and it defaults to me getting an email about every single bit of activity that happens in the group. During my Facebookless Lent I was added to a couple groups and […]

I see this question posted with some regularity in the personals section, so I thought I’d take a minute to explain things to the ladies out there that haven’t figured it out. What happened to all the nice guys? The answer is simple: […]

  • Urine or You’re Out

    Another Email: LikeĀ  most folks in this country, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck in my case, I am required to pass a random urine test (with which I have no problem). […]

  • He Said, She Said

    Another email sent to me: He said to me…….I don’t know why you wear a bra; you’ve got nothing to put in it. I said to him……You wear pants don’t you? He said to me…..Shall we try swapping positions tonight? She said……That’s a good idea – you stand by the ironing board while I sit […]
