TOOLBAG TUESDAY

-“Clear message history” button
-“Clear internet search history” button
-Passwords in random number sequences

-Thumbprint passwords to unlock your phone that, just in case you were wondering, your identical twin can’t even unlock using her thumbprint. 

LOL

…It’s as if Steve Jobs didn’t want people snooping on their significant others!!!

It baffles me that people can still figure out how to get into their significant other’s phone and bust them for cheating given all these protections OR that the person cheating is so technologically-challenged they can’t properly cover their ass.

Greg, this guy my friend Monica lived with, wasn’t taking any chances.

He wasn’t going to trust passwords or the cloud or whatever, he was just never going to NOT physically be with his phone, ever.

LOL

Monica and Greg dated for four years and it was in year three when Greg began cheating on Monica with his co-worker.

COOL, GREG.

Greg suddenly became sketchy in the obvious ways that someone who is cheating on someone is sketchy (weird and standoffish, working late, disappearing to “get drinks” with friends for hours and be very vague about it) 

But no clue was as GLARING as the fact that all of a sudden, Greg was never physically separated from his phone.

It was never casually left on the coffee table or counter. Monica said Greg would hurry to put it back in his pocket when she entered the room. 

And then she noticed he started keeping it charged at night inside a SQUEAKY ASS bedtime table drawer! 

All of a sudden!!!

Did he think he was being smooth??

Who “drawers up” their phone at night???

(Ed note: How can you hear any of the five alarms you set for the morning that way???)

Monica answers: “There was just no way I could have opened that drawer to look at his phone and not woken him up,” she recalls.

The whole thing got really uncomfortable. When asked who he was texting, Greg always said he was texting his “guy friend,” but guys don’t text that much.

Then one night, he and Monica were watching a movie laying on the couch together and his phone in his pocket was jamming into her thigh.

“Can you take that out of your pocket?” Monica told him, shifting. “It’s hurting me.”

AND THEN…

OMG

“Don’t worry about it, I was going to take a shower anyway,” Greg said. 

And he immediately got up and went into the bathroom. 

With his phone! 

AND LOCKED THE DOOR!

Hahahahahahaha

SKETCH.

WHO BRINGS THEIR PHONE INTO THE BATHROOM AND LOCKS THE DOOR? 

Wait...WHO BRINGS THEIR PHONE INTO THE BATHROOM AND LOCKS THE DOOR WHO’S NOT HIDING SOMETHING FROM THEIR LIVE-IN GIRLFRIEND???

No one, that's who.

How long had he been doing this?? 

Monica confronted Greg the minute he came out of the shower, still wrapped in a towel.

“Why are you taking your phone into the bathroom?” she asked.

“What’s your problem?” he asked. 

Haha

“What’s my problem? You’re taking your phone into the bathroom and locking the door!!! Is there something on there that you don’t want me to see?”

“No.” he said, clutching the Otterbox.

LOL

“Let me see your phone.”

“No.”

Monica grabbed the phone from him but couldn’t crack his password because he had changed it from his birth date. 

LOL

They got into a huge fight about it and Monica left and when word got out, everyone started blabbing to her about how Greg and his co-worker had indeed been hooking up. 

Maybe in a shower, even!!!

(Sorry Monica, haha)

UGH

CLEAR MESSAGES.

CLEAR HISTORY.

DELETE.

TOOLBAG TUESDAY

I’ve heard of some pretty hilarious attempts at an ex trying to stay in touch after a breakup.

Like, sending an ex flowers on Valentine’s Day, like she DOESN’T have a new guy. (Haha)

Or…uhhhh….SENDING HER A TEXT MESSAGE THE MORNING OF HER WEDDING asking if she could “maybe get coffee sometime!??!?!” 

(I can’t even go there.)

But the most creative attempt I’ve heard in a while was from this guy Sam, who totally screwed over my friend Hillary. 

Sam was your standard 30-something toolbag who cheated on Hillary while she was in the process of moving in with him, who blamed it all on a "midlife crisis" and then got engaged to his side piece soon after.

Cool.

Hillary was distraught and embarrassed and never wanted to see Sam’s face ever again. She told him as much.

But Sam didn’t listen. He deliberately went into her favorite bar soon after their breakup on the night he knew she regularly met friends there.

And he came straight up to her and asked her if she’d donate to his “new charity.”

LOL

LOL

LOL

CHARITY?!?!?!?!

Charity!

WTF??!!

SHE needed charity!!!

This couldn’t have been more than two months after their bitter breakup. Hillary said she stood there dumbfounded and stunned.

What was she supposed to say???!?! “Sure, Sam. Tell me more about how you're a God damn saint."

UGH.

NO.

It was all so confusing. Was him helping kids with cancer supposed to make him less of a horrible person??

Did he really expect to her “donate” to this cause?

I MISS MY EX. I THINK I'LL GO AND HIT HER UP FOR MONEY.

Who possibly thinks this is a good idea????!?!?

Seriously.

Name an idea stupider than this.

Oh wait...

She should text him on his wedding day.

“Oh shit, it's Valentine's Day in 2 days!!!” gift guide

So, Valentine’s Day is happening on Sunday.
SUNDAY. This Sunday. Like two days from today, Sunday.

How is it already February 14?? I haven’t even decided on a New Year’s Resolution yet.

Restaurants are booked up! FLORISTS are at capacity with their orders!! (Really, this happens)

But never fear! The internet is here!

Below is a list of gifts you can buy your significant other RIGHT NOW and then pretend like you’ve had it for weeks. (uhhh pending internet access and a credit card.) 

Haha

This year’s gift guide follows my previous Valentine’s Day gift guides: 

Mail subscription boxes
Mail is depressing. Bills, flyers, an outstanding dentist bill from the person who lived in the house before you....etc. Break up the UGH with a mail order box your love will look forward to every month! There is seriously a box for ANYTHING: food boxes, beauty product boxes, workout clothing boxes, BarkBox (for the pet lovers). Guys have Dollar Shave Club box, Bourbon-of-the-Month club box. (Howard Stern even talked about a new NERD box with comic books and dorky swords in it.) Just Google whatever they are into and then type “monthly box” behind it.

Anything from a SPA 

If you have a lady friend, you can never, ever go wrong with anything spa-related. Massages, pedicures, facials, waxes, scrubs, cleanses, hot stone anything. Call the best-rated spa on Yelp and get a gift card in any amount. Then say AHHHHHHHHHHHHH.


Groupon bucks


Anything you possibly need, you can find it on Groupon. Seriously, anything. Need a vacation? Book a Groupon getaway. Need a house cleaner? Find one half off. Like a restaurant? Spend $20 to get $40 worth of food there. Groupon is actually pretty handy. There are a ton of spa and salon services, massive deals on wine, home and lawn services, really any service from a local company. Get your lover a Groupon credit and they’ll be thrilled to use it towards whatever their heart desires.

Coffee shop gift cards


Paying coffee shop prices is depressing and you always feel guilty about it. But nothing beats liquid crack. Get your significant other a gift card to their favorite coffee shop and I guarantee you’ll see their mood improve for the entirety of the card amount. You don’t even have to go get a plastic card!!! A mobile APP lets you load a Starbucks card onto someone’s phone.

A sweet playlist
Remember when you liked someone and you made them a mix CD? Get on iTunes and download 15 or so songs and then burn it on a CD (all cars have CD players) and then take a sharpie, date it, and write something cheesy as the description. Tip: download music of bands you’ve seen together, sweet and sexy love songs and, if she was born between the years 1981-1987, Dave Matthews Band's “Say Goodbye.” LOL. (Not actually kidding)

Community-Supported Agriculture Box subscription
Food is always a good gift idea. Impress your lady or guy friend with a box of local fruit and vegetables! CSA boxes are weekly boxes of fresh, local produce from fresh, local farmers available in almost every city in the country. It supports local farmers (awwwww how romantic) and it’s the freshest possible produce you can find. If your lover happens to be a hipster, they will explode. Bonus: you may have all yours dinners cooked for you.

Print photos

Who doesn’t love to hold a photo in their hand??? Photo books or even just a few printed out are super cheap and super thoughtful. And easy! Depending on where you live, you either have 12 or 15 Walgreens stores within a 3-mile span. Their app and website lets you upload pictures straight from Facebook or Instagram. Take the one with the most “likes,” upload and go pick them up in an hour.  

And there you have it.

IT’S JUST THAT EASY!!!!

Valentine’s Day gifts you can get today!!!

Right now!! Without leaving your desk.

Way to think ahead.

:)

TOOLBAG TUESDAY

Food and beverage people always say that everyone should work in food and beverage at least once in their lives because they’ll see how truly horrible people can be, and it may bring awareness to the condition.

...And that condition is Mike.  

Mike was a complete embarrassment to my friend June on their one and only date and it was NOT because Mike was drunk or anything.

He's an embarrassing date sober.

Uhhh.....check please!!!!

Ha

Mike and June met online (ugh) and they both chatted beforehand about their love for a nice steak dinner so Mike asked her out to a steak dinner.

He was already breaking the mold for all the other online dates she had gone on.

He didn’t suggest they go to a seedy dive bar, for one thing. 

And the way he phrased asking her out, it was implied that he’d be paying the bill. Promising!!!

June said that when she met Mike for before-dinner cocktails, she was pleasantly surprised by how cute he was. Promising!!

But then Mike asked the bartender if the bar had any “small-batch gin.”

Ugh.

June said since they were at a fancy bar, the bartender said actually, yes, they do, and he made Mike a small-batch gin martini.

The minute Mike took a sip of the martini his cute face turned into a scowl.

“EWWWWW” he said dramatically. “This is HORRIBLE.”

“Ok, well, then send it back and get another drink made,” June said.

“NO, it’s FINE. I’LL DRINK IT,” Mike said. With every sip, his face curled up into a scowl, unattractive.

The bar they were at is a very small, narrow bar and the bartender could clearly hear that Mike hated his cocktail.

“How is that small-batch?” (LOL) he asked, already knowing the answer.

FINE,” Mike said.

“Really, if you don’t like it, I can make another one.”

“NO! I’LL DRINK IT!” Mike yelled (yelled!!) and then June said she had to sit there watching him take sour-faced sips of a drink with a helpless bartender.

“Hey, the bartender just wants to make you happy. You can get another drink, we’d ALL appreciate it,” June said.

But Mike was too proud or too interested in being unhappy to care.

Now, if small-batch gins were unsuitable for Mike’s delicate palate, you can imagine how he did with a rare steak. 

June said basically the exact same scenario went down: Mike ordered something, wasn’t pleased with it, yet refused to get another one, leaving the server helpless and pissed off.

“This steak is NOT rare,” he told June deliberately as the server was coming up. The same writhing sour face, LOL.

“It’s not?” the server said, having overheard his complaint. 

“I'm sorry, let me have them make another one. It won’t take more than five minutes to fire it.”

“NO, I’M STARVING, I’LL JUST EAT IT,” he said. 

Another SOUR FACE.

June looked at the server, helpless herself.

MY steak is perfect,” she said trying to make the server feel better.

Mike snorted.

Again June told him, “Why don’t you just get another fucking steak? Why are you being so difficult?”

“BECAUSE I’M STARVING,” he said, eating his meat.

“A rare steak takes no time at all,” she said. 

But it was clear that Mike wasn’t interested in being happy with his food, drinks or service. He just wanted to complain and be a dick.

(June noted he also disliked the gin martini at the steak place, surprise, surprise.)

June said it got so bad that the MANAGER came over to the table to see what the problem was. 

"Your server says you're not happy...."

June was mortified and kept repeating to the manager that HER steak was perfect and delicious. Mike backtracked saying it was “fine,” making everyone uncomfortable.

In fact, it was the most uncomfortable date she had ever been on. She said other people were staring at them and their table. Certainly the others servers were. 

Then, the server came back and announced that the manager was going to give them a free dessert because of the steak. 

“I DON’T EAT DESSERT!” Mike said.

OH LORD.

(Ed note: Who the F doesn't eat dessert????)

June said the server got snippy, which was again mortifying since it had never happened to her before.

“Well, then take the dessert to-go, I don't care,” she said and walked away.

LOL

Mortifying.

June ordered a custard cup or whatever and then shoveled it into her mouth as fast as possible so they could leave and she’d never have to see Mike again.

At least he paid. 

On the walk back to her car, June again told Mike that it was confusing as to why he was so difficult and why he couldn’t have re-ordered the food and drinks he wasn’t happy with.

“It doesn’t matter, it wouldn’t be right anyway,” he said.

LOL

June then understood why this "cute" guy was online dating.

He was clearly some sort of unsatisfied, miserable control freak who loves to be fussed over by food and beverage workers.

Because there is no other reason why someone would pay $30 for a steak that’s not to their preferred temperature or $11 for a gin martini that’s disgusting. 

It's like he got off on being difficult.

(Ed note: At least someone was getting off that night...heyooo)

June said she was counting the city blocks until she got to her car when they walked past a cute wine bar that June had spent many nights enjoying.

“Oh, that place is horrible, I ordered a CHIANTI the other week at it tasted OLD,” Mike said.

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

June couldn’t even imagine being there with him as he argued with the bartender about the time frame in which the bottle was opened.

Haha

What a tool.

He was 2-for-2 in pissing off wait staff for no good reason. Thank god there wasn’t the opportunity for a third.

Besides, there aren’t enough sour faces to deal with any more of him.
