I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.
..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.
“Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”
I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away..
..Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”."

My faith in pizza guys has gone up 123%
NO LET ME TELL YOU A STORY
So a few weeks ago I was in a hotel in Savannah with my grampa in the hospital next door, Mom was over staying with him, and the battery in the smoke detector went out so every 5 minutes it would let off this loud, high pitched ‘CHIRP’.
It was annoying as fuck, so I called the front desk to see if they had a battery for it, and they said the only thing they could do was change rooms. We’d already settled in for the night, and needed the next door rooms for my uncles the next day, so I said I’d deal. My uncles had my car in the next town over, so I couldn’t drive and get one myself.
An hour later, I’m ordering pizza and have gone insane because the damn thing CHIRPS. SO. MUCH.
So I begged the pizza guy on the phone to stop and get me a battery, told him I’d pay for the battery, and give him an extra tip for it, and he was chill with it. This adorable fucker gets to my room with the battery, opens it, asks to see the smoke detector, CLIMBS ON THE BED, CHANGES THE BATTERY FOR ME, and tests it.
My pizza was only 20 dollars, but I gave him 40 and told him to keep the change.
I am clearly not fully utilizing my pizza delivery person…..

CultureHISTORY: The Obamas & Black History
- First Lady Michelle Obama at the Brown vs. Board of Education Museum, Topeka, Kansas, July 2014
- President Barack Obama on the Rosa Parks bus at the Henry Ford, Dearborn, Michigan, April 2012
We are living during historic times. The Obamas are changing and reclaiming black history right before our very eyes. The passage of time will only serve to elevate their legacies so, as we move through this momentous era with America’s First Black Family, be present for the journey. Future generations will ask us about Obama as we asked our elders about MLK, Malcolm and JFK. They will ask us what it felt like to live in the Age of Obama. Be a witness to history.
He turned culture upside down and enabled corporations to enslave us all with government and legal backing Ayeeee Obama… To be fair it was a process started when the gold standard was abandoned and a third party banking system (federal reserve)was created to control our money #witness
Right. Thanks for the Emo thoughts. Meanwhile, as a POC, I live in the REAL world sans privilege which means I have to worry about those pesky things like racism, police brutality, misappropriation of culture, job discrimination, wage inequality, etc. You know, the stuff that the far left doesn’t have to time for cause they’re too worried about their phone calls.
But yes, please, continue railing about some vague “corporate enslavement’. Talk to me in ten years when the nation’s uninsured rate is under 10%, LGBT can marry freely everywhere, after a reduction in carbon rules takes effect, talk to the people whose jobs were saved when he saved the auto industry. Talk to me after an entire generation is propelled into service after this historic presidency. In the meantime, read some actual African American history. Perhaps you’ll understand the actual point of this post. Thanks for your thoughts.
Thank you for snatching your post back and standing up for Obama. People want to sleep on his presidency and act like this man has done nothing. I’m amazed at all he has done with the republican congress fighting and disrespecting him every step of the way. This man was handed a shit sandwich by the Republicans and has been checking off his to-do list bit by bit, as much as he is allowed to do. I wish his administration would talk about his accomplishments more.
Thanks. I’m not too fond of people making vague & uneducated comments on Obama’s administration so I’m always gonna clap back with real world talk. The media continues to follow GOP talking points on this presidency and I refuse to fall for it. Especially when there is so much factual evidence to the contrary. #FactsMatter . Appreciate your thoughts.
