What's Your Problem II

But enough about me.

The very first official weekend diversion I did was What’s Your Problem? It asked Jibs what was troubling them (not to be confused with last week’s diversion, which asked Jibs kind of the same question but meant: What pisses you off?), with the notion that maybe other Jibs were going through or had been through the same difficult time and could offer advice or strength or just a shoulder to lean on.

It generated a number of interesting comments, a handful of them from people who really were going through some very tough, heartbreaking times. And, as I knew would happen, a number of sympathetic Jibs rallied to the rescue, offering comfort and advice.

In other words, it worked exactly as I hoped it would. How the hell often does that ever happen?

In the months that have followed I’ve sometimes wondered: How did things work out? Did any of those problems get solved? Did our advice help any?

So … If you posted a problem on “What’s Your Problem” I, please give us an update. Did you dump that loser? Did you quit that awful job? Did the illness go away?

If you didn’t have a problem then and do now, unload. If you had a problem then, solved it and have a new problem, unload.

And if you’re new to our special secret island in the past few months (and we know we’ve lured a number of former lurkers into the open) and something is troubling you, unload.

We’re from Pajiba, and we’re here to help.

TATER BARLEY BANKS is not to be trusted. He probably makes up everything he writes about himself, especially the stuff about living in West Virginia. Don’t be fooled. In truth, he lives in Pajibaland, where he speaks gibberish as , (TCFKAB), spends his time sitting on a park bench, eyeing little girls with bad intent, and is developing a 25-letter alphabet, now that his key doesn’t work. He has no blog, no Facebook page and no MySpace page, so don’t try to find him. If you’re so inclined, you can email Tater.
