You Blew It!: An Awkward Look at the Many Ways in Which You've Already Ruined Your Life (Paperback)
A hilarious examination of faux pas for readers of Allie Brosh’s Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson’s Let’s Pretend This Never Happened
Humankind is doomed. Especially you.
It’s already too late. From overstaying your welcome at a party, to leaving passive-aggressive post-its on your roommate’s belongings, to letting your date know the extent of the internet reconnaissance you did on them—you're destined to embarrass yourself again and again. In You Blew It!, Josh Gondelman, comedian and co-creator of the “Modern Seinfeld” twitter account, teams up with Joe Berkowitz, an equally wry and ruthless social-observer, to dissect a range of painfully hilarious faux pas. Breaking down the code violations of modern culture—particularly our fervent, ridiculous addiction to technology—Gondelman and Berkowitz will keep you laughing as they explore how social blunders are simply part of the mystery that is you.
