Before reading this you may want to read my post on Monday about my complaining ways. Things piss me off in life, and I usually feel the need to tell people about it. If that makes me a complainer (or a bitcher) then so be it.
This has never bothered me in the past, but in recent weeks I’ve started to wonder if seeing the world from such a negative viewpoint is the healthiest way to go through life. For the most part I have always been a glass half-full kind of dude. I can see the beauty in things pretty easily. But when it comes to morons, idiots, stupid people and the crap they put the rest of us through I have little patience.
Last week while on vacation I caught an episode of a show I didn’t even realize was on TV. The Jeff Probst Show. He is the dude that hosts Survivor and apparently has a daytime talk show now where he interviews people. The things you miss out on by having a job huh?
Anyway on this particular episode Dr. Drew Pinsky and Adam Corolla were on talking about their Love Line days, as well as what they are up to now. Incidentally I used to listen to Love Line on the radio all the time – that was some funny shit. But Jeff Probst brought up something to Adam Corolla that got my attention. Adam is a master complainer. He can take any topic and find some reason to bitch about it.
They tested this by having an audience member throw out a random topic (birthdays) and he went on a rant about it. I am 100% positive I can do this exact same thing. I’ve tried a couple times with the Lady Friend and found it quite easy to piss and moan about almost any subject. I can even find things to bitch about with things I ENJOY like sports and beer.
So I am now embracing it. My super power is complaining and I’m damn proud of it!!
