Pity Party Mug by Don Alfera

For the Virtual Pity Party, I have to say, that once upon a time in a land far far away, a friend of mine gave me a gift as a result of my ability to feel compassion for those who felt like crying in their beer. When having a pity party everyone should bring their own cup because obviously the person hosting the party cannot be expected to think of other's needs. So I was given an engraved cup.

He took up a collection and gave me a present in front of all of my coworkers one day that made me laugh so hard that I just about died laughing. It was so much like something I would tell my students when they would tell me that change is hard or it is so hard to find a way to do things etc… It really struck home, as you see one of the things I was big on was to tell students that goal setting is the key to success and when a person is without goals they are lost. Lost people can flounder in life for an eternity. And so on… You get the picture.

~ Oh, Ain't It Awful ~

Well, the Puter mug was engraved "OH AIN'T IT AWFUL" on the side that faced the other person would be sitting with. Never again could I use that line or that cup especially when someone came to me with a problem. LOL What a life.
