Open Letter To Limelight Entertainment Group

I recently attended a K-pop concert in NYC. In the lead-up to the show and during the show itself, there were some SERIOUS problems. I decided to write to the concert promoter about it. This is the letter I wrote. I will update if I happen to get the “quick and prompt” response they’ve promised. […]

Maybe It’s Time You Got Some Glasses

I found something that makes me happy. It provides useful distraction from everyday stressors, and has shown me a whole giant pile of new things to learn. Yet, for some reason, though I’m harming no-one, there are some people who feel the need to make cracks that may seem joking on the surface, but have […]

Seek and ye shall find.

I’d like to take a bit of time tonight to talk about jealousy, insecurity, control, and double standards. Basically, I’d like to tell you to KNOCK IT THE FUCK OFF RIGHT NOW, but perhaps a bit more finesse is needed. It’s worth a shot anyhow, right? Right. Let’s get started.

Cacophony

Another tragedy occurred today. Seems to be happening more and more frequently, these things. Another mass shooting by a single man, this time at a school. He wasn’t a student there anymore, he wasn’t your typical “troubled teen”, he was a man of 20 who lived with his divorced mother. His mother was a teacher […]

No, you may not.

I understand that there wasn’t a demo model of the Ear & Nose Hair Trimmer available. I’m sorry about that. Sure, I’d be happy to open a box, remove a trimmer, put a battery in it, and let you push Play so you could see and hear whether or not it functions and at what […]

Rules of Engagement, Part 2 – Customer Service Representatives

I have been in customer service in some capacity since I was about seven years old. I went around my neighbourhood with my little shovel offering to clear people’s walks and front stairs of snow. I sold saltwater taffy and mints to get myself to camp. Later, it was Girl Scout cookies and whatever thing […]

Rules of Engagement, Part 1 – Customers

There you are, shopping for groceries with your toddler. Things are going splendidly until said toddler spies something that he wants and you tell him “no”. Cue the mother of all temper tantrums, right there in front of all of the checkout lanes. Kicking, screaming, big crocodile tears, the whole nine yards. Just when this […]

Rudeness now has the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval!

Nobody likes to get fleeced, or even pay more than they should for an item or service. There are plenty of websites and publications where bargain-hunters are able to find new ideas for saving money. Message boards and coupon code sites abound. Recently, though, a trend has popped up among magazines. They’re publishing the usual […]

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?

Y’know what I can’t stand? Procratinators. Putting stuff off for whatever reason, making people wait around until they get their shit together. People like me.

All I wanted was a Pepsi!

Those wacky folks at the TSA have done it again! I gotta tell ya, they’re real jokers over there (you don’t even want to KNOW what their holiday party is like every year – it takes them all a week to recover, but they have stories for months afterward).
