Well, the interview went about how I expected. He somewhat looked over my resume, asked me about my last job, then attempted some sales pitch about how their company takes people like me and makes them management material in 4-8 months.

Sniffed out that BS real quick. Went on to try and explain the process, started with Marketing (since that's what I said I was interested in), then tried to move the process to Sales without me noticing.

As soon as I heard the word "Sales", I passed. Not a sales guy in the first place, and based off the testimony I had read about the company, they put their salesmen in impossible situations. Moving them to stores in the boondocks of NC, almost completely commission-based, don't reimburse for gas. No thank you.

Thank you, Wes Welker, for trolling an entire fanbase.

Listening to reactions today has made me lol repeatedly.

Only thing that would have trolled them more is signing with the Steelers. Seriously, if there's any two things that Pats fans can't stand it's the Steelers and the Mannings.

Oh yeah, watching Welkahhhh catch Peyton's passes is going to be epic. And can you imagine if he comes up big against the Pats in the playoffs? Face. Melting. Rage.

I have a lot of family who are huge Broncos fans (gag), so of course I had to inquire as to whether Wes's hair plugs will grow at that altitude.

Just finished Max Payne 3, didn't expect much but it's actually pretty good. Definitely worth checking out.

Yay. Now I can actually cheer for Welker. I despise the Pats.

I'm actually going to try to get away from trolling as much and be a more or less upstanding citizen

No, I don't have a problem.
13 episodes yesterday? 15 episodes today.




Seriously, somebody help me.

This is crazy. I'm as big of a fan of social sharing as anyone, but do we actually live in the moment and experience anything any more?

I was thinking about this at a concert where it seemed like everyone had their phones up recording.

What are they recording it for? Does anyone in the world actually sit and watch handheld video of live music? I mean, I get recording your favorite part of your favorite song, but after that you're just wasting phone memory.

You have no idea how hysterical Pats fans are being up here.

Basically the jist of the reactions have been:

..."Good riddance. He was never that good anyways."
..."Now Brady doesn't have to waste his time throwing to someone who has no hands."
..."Overrated. Amendola is 100x better than Welker."

Got back from the Eye Doc.

Good news, pressure is down to 11 and 12, which from 51 is great.
New steroid to use for next couple of weeks along with the pressure med.

Bad news, since I had a reaction with the prednisolone I will have a higher risk of glaucoma later in life.

Good lord. Talk about "what have you done for me lately".

Of course, after Johnny Damon they should be getting used to this.

Sure I do... my in-laws are all in MA and Pats fans!

It's the same stuff they had for Bourque, Damon, Ray Allen... and on and on and on.

I. LOVE. IT.

My condolences. There is nothing more annoying than Patriots fans.

Don't worry Bro, I got you.

I think at this point we might as well just agree that we share the same relationship Howard and Raj do on Big Bang.

I could go into bigger detail, it'd derail some of the fun

I have never really watched The Big Bang Theory. Sorry to ruin your pop culture references again.

I've never heard anyone rip on Bourque for leaving. If anything, the real venom was directed toward the Bruins organization itself.
