I was first labeled a Bitterman back in 1996 when I was in a job I did not care for and not everything in my life was exactly turning up roses (I will spare you the details). To be quite honest, there were a lot of things that simply sucked back then. In order to cope, I was always bitching about one thing or another – it was actually very cathartic. The nickname Bitterman ended up sticking …from that point on my friends and family would often refer to me as Bitterman.
Over the years I’ve come to realize that Bitterman is so much more than a funny nickname, it represents that part in all of us that calls bull shit on things and does so in a sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek manner. It’s not about being cranky – it’s about acknowledging that life occasionally throws a shit sandwich our way and it is not always smooth sailing. This is about just being honest…face it - life ain't always "good."
Celebrate the Bitterman in you or in your life.
