Problem: Present time! Wait, this sweatshirt looks awfully familiar… oh no, you’ve been re-gifted!
Solution: Be glad, not mad! Think of it as finding a $20 bill in your pants pocket you thought you lost. Return said gift and get your money back, or, what the hell, wear it with pride. Who says you’re not “The World’s Greatest Grandma”?
Problem: Your annoying cousin keeps trying to show you “hilarious” memes on his phone.
Solution: Very gravely explain that you personally know "Success Kid" and that his life is a walking nightmare.
Problem: Your significant other’s mom is the worst cook on earth.
Solution: So you’re at a holiday party where, to quote the Sugarhill Gang, “The food just ain't no good -- I mean the macaroni's soggy, the peas are mushed, and the chicken tastes like wood.” So what should you do? Wonder Mike’s advice in Rapper’s Delight is to simply bust down the door and run to the store for a bottle of Kaopectate. This song has been popular since 1979 -- almost 40 years! Who are we to think we could dole out better advice?
