Couple Spends Nearly $248,000 on Playhouses!

July 26, 2011

So I get this email from my boy Aaron this morning, and I wanna get your opinion on it ;)  I’m gonna copy and paste the exact email exchange back and forth because I find it absolutely hysterical, and maddening!!, at the same time.  Take a read and then tell us how YOU feel about it. It’s safe to say Aaron and I fall on […]

Borders is Shutting Down?? NOoooOOooooOooo!

July 20, 2011

I freakin’ love that place, man – this is a sad sad day!! I just got an email from Consumer Reports giving some tips, and it makes me want to scream (not about the tips, but that they are closing!!). That just blows. And it’s the second store in my area to now shut its doors that I actually frequented. (The other was Panera Bread, […]

It’s Court Time, Bitches!

July 15, 2011

Remember 210 days ago when I was lied to owed my last paycheck? Well guess what, today I go fight for it!  All $2,100 worth.  In fact, I could very well be sitting in court as you’re reading this! :) (I’ll try and send out a tweet if I can get away with it, haha…) We had our briefing the other day on how it’s […]

A Date With The IRS

June 30, 2011

(I know, this sounds like a paid advertisement but I assure you it’s not.  This is called clever marketing – you make me laugh and I want to share it with […]

Get a Tattoo, Save 20% for Life.

April 12, 2011

HOLY. CRAP. This is the craziest, yet most brilliant, branding strategy yet! Literally! Haha… get a tattoo of your favorite designer and receive 20% off for life. Not too shabby for some outside the box thinkin’ ;) (Although 20% does seem pretty low, ya gotta at least start around 50% for it to be fair) Imagine if other brands started following suit? People walking around […]

Update on Jackal Ex-Employer

March 1, 2011

We have hired an attorney! Time to put up a fight, baby!!!  It’s now been  2 1/2 months since we got laid off and those ass hats STILL haven’t given us our last paycheck.  Bunch of turd buckets… What kind of people steal 80 hours of work from their colleagues?? Over Christmas? Blech. I just don’t understand why people can’t act like normal civil adults […]

It’s official: My ex-employer is bananas.

January 5, 2011

I don’t even know whether to laugh, or to cry, at this point. I think “shocked” is the perfect way to describe these recent events from my now ex-employer.  Or better put – LACK of events. This is probably going to turn into a long ramble/rant, which I feel bad for having just written the beautiful story of Love Drop the other day, but this […]

Gotta Push Through Even When You’re Mad!

November 22, 2010

Friday morning I was PISSED. We were literally on our way to the airport to visit my boy Nate and check out Chicago for the first time, when United F’ing Airlines called to say the flight was canceled all of a sudden! No apologies, no reasons for it (not that it really matters at that point), just a simple little robot voice letting you know […]

The Power of 2nd (and 3rd) Opinions

October 12, 2010

Remember the other month when I thought I was gonna have to retire my Caddy? Because I failed emissions and some jerk store told me it was going to cost $3,000 to fix?  Well yeah, they were wrong. Which brings us to today’s topic:  MAKE SURE TO GET 2nd OPINIONS! Especially when you have no idea about whatever it is that’s broken. And when it […]

Guy’s house burns down because he didn’t pay $75 fee!!!

Thumbnail image for Guy’s house burns down because he didn’t pay $75 fee!!!

(WARNING: I am extremely pissed off right now) Where the F*ck is common decency? What if this was your mother’s home burning down?!  This story fires me up beyond belief (no pun intended)…  In a nut shell, a homeowner didn’t pay the $75 yearly fee to have access to the fire service, so when he called 911 to get someone out to stop it from […]
