My life is a sitcom. - Dont get swallowed by...THE BLOG!
Vlad 2.0...Coming soon!
My life is a sitcom.

I dont think many people realize how serious I am when I say, "My life is a sitcom." My life, in essence and at its core, is a situational comedy. Problems and circumstances come up in my life that can only have been dreamed up by writers for NBC.

For years now I have had live in this Must See TV world. And it isn't that bad. It has actually helped me take things in stride. I know that if a problem comes up, it will eventually be solved, usually in 30 minutes. Thats how sitcoms, and my life, work.

Here are some examples from my life, which have led to this belief:

  • In 10th Grade the day I plan on asking out the girl I like, I inform a mutual friend "I'm gonna ask her out this afternoon." He responds, "Umm, dude, I asked her out this morning." I do a take to the camera.

  • At Outback we have to ring stuff up on tickets, and occasionally we mess up and something extra gets rung up by accident, we then need a manager to "delete" this extra charge. "Deletes" have to separated from the rest of your tickets. So its midnight and I have finally finished getting all the tickets and credit card reciepts together for the 9K+ in sales Takeaway did Valentines Night. Then am I informed of a delete I must find. I then proceed to go through about 300 tickets and the delete I need is on the very last ticket.

  • I decide to help out Outback Bethesda by doing lunch shifts there. My first day, after a 4 hour shift,  I make a measely 15 dollars. Parking in Bethesda is 5 dollars. You do the math...yeah.

  • I'm at home and  walk upstairs to get a snack. I see a container of dark chocolate covered expresso beans, so I grab it. After I take a few I set it down on the counter, 8 seconds later I reach to grab something next to it and hit it. Out white linoleum floor is covered in black expresso beans and I have to clean them up. Also, theyre not mine.

  • It is 10:29PM Monday night at Outback. One minute until we lock up. I am a closer so I have a bunch more to do compared to everyone else, and I have to check everyone off to make sure they did everything they need to do before they can leave. For once, I have finished doing pretty much everything and will be ready to go home once we lock the doors. Guess what happens! A couple walks in. Now guess who gets to wait on them! They stay almost till midnight.

  • Its the last day of Creative Writing class. Due today is our major Revision of one of our stories, and our Story Journal. These are worth something like twenty or thirty percent of our grades. I am in a rush at home, and my printer doesn't work. So I save them on a disk and speed to the campus so I can print them out. I dont have to email the files to myself, the disk'll be fine, I think to myself. WRONG! According to the computers at school, my disk is unformated and doesn't work. "Would you like to format this disk now? Caution: Formatting will delete any files on the disk." Hilarity ensues.

My life, is a sitcom.

In the defense of your life...

You have a very sitcom personality, you act in a very sitcom character manner. The one follows the other I think.

I hate those damn couples who come in a minute before closing.

We had a party of 12 come in 9 minutes before we closed on sunday, then a party of 25 come in 2 minutes before we closed.
It sucks like woah. Like WOAH.

you need a new genre

I like to think of my life as being more of a romance novel. Everyone's generally more attractive, and there's orgasms all around!

Think about the kitchen

Think about the kitchen when those couples walk in, they are cleaning up after a huge rush and an order comes in and what do you know after that order is out they have to clean again, i know i have been there. But anyway, yes vlad your life is a sitcom and the rest of us are the characters that pop in and out to either make your life worse or to try and make it easier. I am glad to say that i am a part of such a great show and i just wish they had it on basic cable.

Re: Think about the kitchen

Yeah, knowing I'm keeping the kitchen guys late pisses me off.
And I wish I was on basic cable too.
