Look, I’m tired of coming across these phony blogs that post their income statement online. Or sometimes, they claim to make $10k in the first year of blogging. Didn’t your mamma teach you it’s not nice to discuss salary? Look, I’m not saying it isn’t possible. People have the chance to win the lottery but… Continue reading Stop Posting Blog Income Statements
I realized I hadn’t done a how to be a decent human being post in ages. After spending 8 days out of this month at 3 different hotels for work and soccer, it came to me that I hadn’t written about how to be a decent human being at a hotel. For years, I spent… Continue reading How to Be a Decent Human Being at a Hotel
Yours truly is attending a food conference right now for 4 days. Usually I shy away from work related stories but this is too funny to leave alone.

Was I decapitated?” “No.” “Was I raped?” “No.” “Then tell me!” After a few seconds she paused and… Continue reading I Dreamt You Died

Perhaps because I had 10 readers tops, it didn’t get much traffic and that’s a damn shame given how often I bet many of you have heard these. Perhaps your guilty of these yourself! The original post… Continue reading 16 Corporate Terms We Hate

Full disclosure, I had no idea that sloths were known for moving super slow. It took the Geico commercial (from this year) for me to realize this. Today, my work had a family fun day on site and had the zoo animals come visit us. “They better not bring a snake,” I said about 10… Continue reading Sloths are the Best!
