Join me and some other guys for a rant — Sisterwives style

image It isn’t often I’m asked to talk about what bugs me. In fact, the last time someone asked me that question it cost me $150 an hour for them to listen. And I’m pretty sure I heard snoring, although I was told it was not, but was in fact my own repressed anger toward espresso machines manifesting itself.


So when the talented ladies at The Sisterwives said I could tell them what bugs me for free, I immediately launched into a long-winded rant covering everything from incontinence commercials while I’m eating, to people who use an entire parking space for their tiny Smart cars when they could easily park them in a SHOPPING CART CORRAL! After listing to me spew on for a while, Beth at The Sisterwives politely said, “This isn’t actually a therapy session, so I’ll need you to write that down please.”

The result has been included in the He Said edition of “What Bugs Me,” which began with the She Said edition earlier this week. Both are a collaboration of several bloggers who were asked to participate in what is a hilarious whining session hosted by The Sisterwives. Participants include Samara from A Buick in the Land of Lexus, Marcia from Menopausal Mother, Mandi from Cellulite Looks Better Tan, Chris DeVoss from Long Awkward Pause, Scott (Aka “Twindaddy”) from Finding Twindaddy, Eric from Opticynicism and other terrific bloggers.

Oh, and me.

My sincere thanks to Beth and everyone at The Sisterwives for giving me and the rest of the guys a chance to get these things off our chests. And ladies, thank you for sharing what’s on your chests with the rest of us. If the Internet crashes in a moment, it probably has something to do with that last sentence…

Because I was taught and believe ladies should go first, you can start with She Said by clicking on the icon below.
