Guys I Hate: St. Patty’s Day Drunk Guy

Welcome to Guys I Hate, it’s pretty self-explanatory. Got a guy you hate? Drop me a comment – we probably hate a lot of the same guys.


I love holidays, I really do. Halloween through New Year’s Eve – huge time for me and my family. I can even handle Valentine’s Day. I loathe St. Patrick’s Day and there is nothing worse than drunk guy or we might as well just say drunk bro. Who exactly is this guy? He’s the one who takes off work so he can start drinking at 7:00am because “you can’t be drunk by noon if you don’t start early!” If you happen to get pulled into going out after work and end up at an Irish Pub it’s always six people deep at the bar trying to get a beer. This guy is always standing next to me and is always ready to throw a punch. Why? The guy is so blasted he won’t even remember the scene. He has puke on his shirt and is wearing a green shirt that probably says IRISH even though he’s clearly of Italian descent. Fuck this guy and if you see him out this Friday feel free to throw a proactive punch on my behalf…


Fun with Writing (and Beer)

1 Beer: Open the laptop

2 Beers: Jot down notes and prioritizes what needs to be done; remember why you love beer

3 Beers: Write, the beer helps the humor level

4 Beers: Personal antidotes come easy

5 Beers: Humor turns crass, lots of “fucks” and phrases such as “blowing truckers”

6 Beers: The writing is phenomenal – at least to you

7 Beers: You think you are Bukowski (Note: You are not, not even close)

8 Beers: Each sentence requires significant editing




12 Beers: You tell me, how is this?

Shocking Beer Facts!


Today nothing is good for you. Don’t smoke, eat red meat or drink water from a hose. Even heroin is considered “bad.” When did this happen? You know what is good for you? Beer, at least in moderation – it’s a scientific fact (note: maybe not scientific, but studies have been done by guys wearing bow ties for sure). That’s one interesting fact of many about one of life’s simple pleasures: beer.

Some of us enjoy a cold one at a ball game on a hot day while others can’t wait to get home and crack open a tall boy and let the stress of the day drift away. Twenty years ago microbrews blew up the industry and now there are so many options and they are available everywhere. Gone are the days of choosing between Miller, Budweiser and Coors. Now you have craft lagers, India Pale Ales and fruit beers everywhere you look. Have you been to a Walgreen’s lately? At any given time they have at least four I.P.A. beers to choose from.

Random: The IPA Years

Beer works much faster once you stop eating so much. I’ve been on a beer kick as of late to the point where I wonder if I will look back on this time as the beer years or something worse. Have you noticed how many IPA beers are now available? It’s impossible to try them all, but I’m doing my best. I’m all in on the IPA trend as well as mixing in the occasional six-pack of Corona Light or Landshark Lager. I know these aren’t good beers, but if you put your ear up to an open bottle you hear the ocean (note: only after minimum of 4 beers). Maybe this whole IPA thing is just a phase and subconsciously I’m just trying to be part of pop culture. I’m not sure how long it’s going to last, but it’s funny to think that at some point I’ll look back and remember the time I was obsessed with IPA beer…
