Signs that you made a dumb career move

Blog Guy, your career advice is very useful, especially your tips on possible indicators that we may have taken the wrong career path at some point. Thanks to your last one, my brother got out of the bee-wearing profession.

What’s up, Blog Guy? You look concerned about something.

I am. I just saw these photos of two panda cubs born in Spain.

SPAIN/They’re adorable! What’s wrong with that?

Blog Guy, you write a lot about bullfighting. What’s the stupidest thing about that so-called tradition?

The Decent Human Beings win one?

Blog Guy, it looks like you’re gloating about something.
