Today my boss fired me via text message. I don't have a text-messaging plan. I paid twenty-five cents to get fired.

Today my boyfriend broke up with me. I cried and told him that I loved him. He gave me a quarter and told me to call someone who cared. threw the quarter in his face and ran. I waited for the bus, but when I got on, I realized I was twenty-five cents short of the fare. I walked home in the rain.

Today I received my passport in the mail. They got my birth date wrong. Then I picked up my birth certificate, which I had sent in with the application. Turns out my parents have been celebrating my birthday on the wrong day for sixteen years.

Today I got in line at the grocery store. The woman in front of me looked right at me, turned to her friend, and said, "That reminds me, I forgot to get acne cream."

-Hayz's Review-
I loved this book! It was so funny! Omg my sister thought I was going to crash the car because I was laughing so hard when she was reading it to me. I give this book 5 stars because no matter how bad of a day you've had someone else has had one just as bad or worse. So pick up this book read some of the stories and you'll forget about your shitty day.
