what not to do after you break up – part 1

i’m sure there are a lot of things, but just go with me on this one.

i’d say telling your lab-mate in grad school that you’ve known for like 2 weeks, might be one of the things you probably shouldn’t do.

then again, sometimes it helps to vent. i get it.

bet you didn’t see that one coming. yeah, me neither.

probably not the best move, but what the hell, can’t hurt right? we’ll see about that. stay tuned for part 2.

don’t you love it when HR listens?

i know, i do.

sadly, it’s rare when they actually listen.

not gonna lie. kinda makes me wanna punch ’em in the face.

JC’s birthday continued.

i mean let’s face it if you are going to sing happy birthday you might as well have a little fun with it… or not.

and clearly it’s not a birthday without CAKE! (which i whole heartedly agree with)

even if it is the red oozy kind… really, who saw that coming?

because flying isn’t enough of a pain…

it’s always exciting when you think your flight is actually going to leave on time. you are boarding.

and then you think you’re going to leave when they make some announcement about a delay.

so you’re thinking to yourself. seriously what could this be?

but i am willing to bet that even with all the possibilities that crossed your mind. having the police come on the plane and escort someone out was not one of them.

yeah, folks it’s pretty impressive when you’re so intoxicated that you are threatening members of the flight crew. i mean honestly, as if flying isn’t enough of a pain why would you go and threaten the flight crew?

personally, i say be nice to the flight crew and maybe they’ll give you a free drink 😉

happy birthday, jesus

so everyone knows that christmas is jesus’ birthday. we get that, right? and of course, you always have to visit family.

but i’ll be willing to bet that you never saw this coming

say what?

you said what now?!

you know when something crazy happens to you and you just need to vent sometimes things don’t come out exactly in the most logical of ways.

especially when you meant to respond but then got caught up in the middle of it.

and then you start explaining…

because you know it always starts off with someone that is extremely logical and “not-crazy” (like: mom, ex, boss, satan… you get the picture) that is panicking about something really really important.

clearly you were the crazy one for not understanding their concern.

and then you realize that perhaps what you said to your friend initially was misphrased… ever so slightly, yet changing the meaning entirely.

it’s for a great reason, i swear…

there are a lot of ways to hurt your wrist, you know…

and requesting an ergonomic keyboard isn’t totally crazy, right?

unless you’re a grad student… because we all know grad students are just slaves, right?

so it’s totally valid to tell your prof you hurt your wrist, right? you just might not want to mention why.

that’s exactly how you get the ladies

invariably it starts with a day off work which is always a good excuse for a happy hour

and you know it’s always a really great sign when you invite yourself over. because clearly that is exactly how you get the ladies.

or maybe it’s when you decide doing more shots is a good idea…

even though she’s not really into it.

because we all know persistence pays off

and no doesn’t really mean no… right?

you want me to do what?

so clearly i love talking to hr because their requests always make so much sense.

so it’s always awesome when they say something like, let’s set up computers in the conference room because we need these people to go somewhere.

and i always wonder if people realize that these things take time to actually you know physically set up computers. so i’m telling my friend about this and she’s like OMG ARE THEY HAVING A LAN CONFERENCE?!

which is not at all what i was thinking but it totally made me think of this

— not my video but it’s what i think of when i hear “LAN conference”
or this one which is arguably more well known:

did no one teach you how to use email?

seriously, i know everyone has that one person in their family that is like SPAM GOD.

what’s even better is when you get forwards from other family members of what SPAM GOD just sent you. like you didn’t have enough junk mail already?

of course every once in a while you get ticked off and send a really awesome response back

sadly, when you aren’t the only person on the list chances are 2 seconds later you will get something else back. because for the love of god nobody understands when it is appropriate to use reply all.

which always ends in…
