The Whiner Returns…

August 19th, 2013 | Leave a comment | Life

So, where has the Whiner been? This may be hard to believe, but he’s been on a two year medication break.

A couple of years ago, he started taking a prescription medication to help with “rage issues.” It worked really well – so well, in fact, that life’s minor (and major) irritations only lasted a few moments before miraculously vanishing. And that means that the need to vent on this blog basically went away.

The problem was that the medication also has a few “minor” side effects. (You know, the ones they slip by you during the barely understandable disclaimer that the soothing female voice races through on the commercials while you look at beautiful sunsets and adorable puppies.) For this med, the side effects include the possibility (likelihood?) of major weight gain, and a considerable impact on glucose levels.

So 35 pounds and a highly elevated glucose level later, it was time to stop the medication and return to rage city.

The Whiner is now back at his original weight (still weighing too much, but not grossly overweight), a little less worried about diabetes, and not spending his evenings thinking about what he’s going to have for his midnight meal.

And he is still mad about things 30 minutes after the fact, giving him enough time to sit down at the computer and share.

Is that a good thing or bad thing? Hard to say. It probably means he’ll live longer – at least, long enough to share lots of whines.

The Whiner is finally going public, after decades of annoying, aggravating and trying the patience of friends and family. The Whiner’s background is in media, business and the internet, so his Whines often focus on stupid or incomprehensible events in those areas. However, they also focus on the incredible incompetence and obliviousness he encounters in his everyday life.

You may encounter the same level of daily frustration as the Whiner does. However, he doubts it.

In real life, The Whiner does have a name, an MBA, and a consulting business specializing in common sense solutions to media and internet problems. Reach him via email – or join him on Facebook or Twitter.

This Will Be Filled (eventually)

What, you think I have nothing better to do than fill every little space the designer put onto the blog? Don't worry, I'll get around to it. And if I don't? I doubt it will matter very much to you or anyone else. So stop reading the sidebar already and go read the posts.
