  1. Like the Time Uncle Leo Opened Jerry’s Package

    The look on the guy’s face when I stuck my foot in my mouth

    So, I have dark humor. Gallow’s humor, so to speak. To give a background of it, I think I developed that edge during the worst of my brother’s mental illness. While there have been some pretty alarming and sad moments, there have also been times when my family and I have laughed – even in the darkest of moments.

    This also means that I make can comments or jokes at the worst times possible – or just make the worst joke in general, no matter what the situation.

    When I was picking up a package at my apartment this afternoon, I came across that very situation.

    I came in and the guy at the front desk was someone who I have joked with before. So, when he was busy in this closet area looking for my delivery, I spotted a couple of large boxes, which looked something like this –

    Yes, they looked something like this.

    I made a joke along the lines of, “Wow, that looks like something out of that Seinfeld episode where Uncle Leo’s eyebrows get burnt off.”

    That, of course, is the PG version of what I said. I probably wouldn’t repeat what I said on my blog as I’m certain I’d end up on some kind of watch list.

    Well, insert horrified expression here.

    I laugh it off and explain myself, but still –

    With that said, I promptly took my own delivery and left the front office.

    There’s a good chance they won’t be renewing my lease.

    Next time I’ll just keep my mouth shut.


  2. Maybe I Can Pull a “George” and Just Show Up

    July 6, 2012 by Lady Unemployed

    So I’ve made a decision. And if you are a Seinfeld fanatic like me, then you probably know what this video means and what my post title means as well.

    I think I might just…show up. For that job I interviewed with Monday, I haven’t heard back yet. So maybe next week I’ll just show up. What could go wrong?

    I know, I know, public humiliation, but hey…you never know until you try!

    On an entirely different note, I also received fun news from the blogging world – Jen over at the blog Whyyy Jen gave me my first blog award! Yay!!! How cool is that?

    5. I hate going to amusement parks with people who won’t get on the scary rides. If you are one of these people and go with me to an amusement park without telling me you don’t like the scary rides, there is a high possibility that I will ditch you to go on those rides.
