Stupidity has always irked me, which is probably why I wrote a soon-to-be-published book called Stupid Humans.

It’s almost like people leave their brains at home when they decide to […]

I am not a morning person. I have never been a morning person. I will never be a morning person. And maybe more of us should be night owls. Back when I had a job, I hated having to be at work at eight in the morning. I am just not someone who can go […]

Is College Worth the Cost? In a word, no. I remember the day I ripped my college diploma to shreds. It had been two years since I graduated with my second degree in Advertising/Public Relations, and I was still working at a crappy, low-paying retail job. You know, the kind you might see in an […]

I spent many years working in hell, otherwise known as retail. Which would be an okay job if it wasn’t for the customers. And the pay. And the hours. And the—okay, nothing about retail is good. There’s not one redeeming quality. That’s the truth. I mean, I always knew there were a lot of idiots […]

I brake, sometimes suddenly, for yard sales, discount stores, and especially brightly-colored clearance signs. DO NOT TAILGATE ME UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET SUED.
