Why am I always in such a bad goddamn mood? Um... maybe because everyone is such a pain in the fucking ass all the time, did you ever think about that? I'm the boss of all these fucking assholes, and look what I work with! I work with a fucking redneck who runs around with half a hard on all the time, telling women he's got a Swiss Army dick and wants to fuck them in the back of his raised Corolla! Then there's the black snow patrol guy, who somehow manages to be more racist than the white guys who give him a watermelon on skis every year for his birthday, and do Sanford and Son reenactments in the break room on Friday nights just to piss him off! He's going to stab one of these motherfuckers in the dick, and I'm not going to be able to stop him! And that's just what I deal with at work! When I go home and try to relax, my wife's bratty kids are running around screaming, then she drops the bombshell on me that she wants to have another one. I've already got three! Four fucking kids?! Now I avoid my wife's pussy like it was a bear trap! I jerk off in secret in the bathroom now more than I did when I was 16! Oh, and I have shot a man in the face with a Howitzer and killed him! This is not the life I was meant to live!
