All right kids, help me out with this. What's the norm? When you go to a restaurant with a big group of people, do you tell your server that you're on individual checks or do you let the restaurant just divide the check up evenly, no matter what everyone gets? Personally, I've only ever experienced … Continue reading Splitting the Check
I recently took a trip down to Raleigh for a friend's daughter's high school graduation. It's funny... A few months ago, I remember talking with coworkers about how I don't understand why people voluntarily go to graduation ceremonies. There's nothing entertaining about them. At best, you get a couple of speakers and someone who has … Continue reading That Time I Got Tricked Into Watching Peppa Pig
Well... it has been an eventful afternoon. Wait... what's the last thing you heard about my car? That was last Friday, right?

I went to see … Continue reading The Single Guy Rants About the Movies
"Don't believe everything you see on the internet." - Abraham Lincoln I've been unfollowing a lot of people on Facebook in recent days. See, unfollowing is a thing that Facebook allows you to do if you don't want a particular person's posts to continue showing up on your newsfeed. I know, I could simply unfriend … Continue reading The Biased Videos We Post Online
Like New Girl's Nick Miller, I'm pretty sure I'm aging into my personality very well. In fact, someday, I'll make a very good cantankerous old man. I suppose, it could be argued, that I already make a very good cantankerous old man. And that's fine. Because you're about to get a dose of what I … Continue reading Get Off My Lawn!
