Of bad attitudes and tech dudes

Of bad attitudes and tech dudesWhat is it with tech guys?  Why are tech guys such tools?  I’m not being stereotypical here, either.  I’m speaking anecdotally.  As anecdotally as this past weekend, as a matter of fact.

With my oldest daughter being home from college for the summer, the fights over the TV have already begun.  To ease my suffering, and avoid a nuclear disaster at Chez jman, I decided to take yet another financial hit and buy a second TV for the gamers residing in my house.

After a quick search on the internets, I found a desirable TV for the right price (that is…fit the space on my credit card) at Best Buy.  Much to my chagrin, though, after making the trek to the store, the desirable TV was only available online.  I could’ve purchased it from the website and had it shipped to the store, but…impulsiveness.

See, a bunch of years ago, Tastykake came out with Pancake flavored Krimpets.  And I picked up a box, why?  Because marketing works on me.  Duh.  And I’m more than willing to try anything that has the word “new” on it.

A Discourse in Online Dating. Or, Insanity squared

A Discourse in Online Dating.  Or, Insanity squared

After a 5 year relationship ended about a year ago, it was time for your friendly neighborhood jman to dive back into the muckity muck that is the middle age dating scene.  Although, for any number of reasons, I’m not exactly sure why.  I mean, I’ve got a pretty happy, fulfilling life as it is.  True…I hate my job with the passion of a thousand burning suns and all, but it’s not like having a woman in my life is going to change all that.  Wanting to be in a relationship has got to be some kind of base biological need hardwired deep in the most primitive parts of our brains.

Either that, or just the need to get laid.
