Things That Suck

I don’t mean things that suck in a “ooh baby just like that” kind of way. I mean it in the bad way.

  • Forgetting your lunch at home and not having any money to buy a lunch
  • Not having money to buy lunch
  • Not having money to buy gas
  • Walking around the office all day only to realize, late in the day, that the reason people were looking at you was because your fly was open
  • Having holes in your socks that you didn’t know about until it was too late
  • Having to fart, but not being able to because of social norms
  • Not being able to make people care about things that are happening in the nation and the world
  • People like Lamar Smith (R) Texas that don’t understand the implications of the bills that they keep introducing, but they continue to introduce the bills because they were written by ALEC
  • Citizens United
  • Congress, it really is the opposite of progress.
  • My inability to say “no.” I need to learn to say that more often since it gets me into more trouble than anything else I do or don’t do.
  • Owing money on your taxes
  • Insomnia
  • Being so tired that you can’t fall asleep
  • Traffic at 2am when all you want to do is get home
  • The price of gasoline
  • Car repair bills
  • Being in debt
  • Bullet lists
This is by no means an exhaustive list. Feel free to add your own in the comments.
