I'm not sure why, maybe reading about other people's trainwrecks make me feel better about my own. In light of that, I started following a tumblr, http://thatbadadvice.tumblr.com/
The guy who runs it finds questions from actual advice columns, where the asker is clearly delusional, and answers them with what the asker clearly wants to hear. It's a funny diversion, plus I've discovered a few new columns to feed my every growing addiction.
Today, he posted this question:
I recently broke up with my girlfriend and to retaliate, I put a sticker across the front windshield of my truck that says “Lift it! Fat girls can’t jump.” (My truck is raised or “lifted” really high. You have to climb up to get in. The sticker makes fun of fat girls not able to get in my truck.) It was funny to me and my friends. I drive the truck to work every day, and about the end of the first week, my manager came and asked me about it. I explained and he asked if I would take it off since some people had told him they found it offensive and embarrassing. I said I would park at the end of the lot and face it away from building. He came back next day and asked again if I would remove it. I said I would cover it up when coming on the property. The next week, HR approached me and reminded me of the anti-harassment policy. I am holding my ground on offering to cover it up but not removing it. I spent $150! I am waiting on what will be decided but what do you think I can expect?
Which originally came from here: http://www.askamanager.org/2013/08/my-emp…
And I just can't even...
How is that sticker retaliatory? Like, is he calling his ex fat? Because if he is, and he sees that as a bad thing, then what does it say about him that he was dating her? And how did someone so delusional manage to get and retain a job for this long?
Stop trying to ruin advice columns for me, stupid asshole!
