In this guide, you’ll learn how to get away from the pain-in-the-asses who make you seriously consider investing in a fallout shelter and making it your new home. You’ll take isolated comfort in these survival strategies, including how to:

• Take a “French leave” in order to eat alone at work
• Get ousted from your kickball league by dressing as Magnum, P.I. for every game
• Get back at the jerk yapping on his cell phone by reciting the lyrics to Harry Chapin’s version of “Cat’s in the Cradle”

I Hate Everyone by Matthew DiBenedetti:

This 400 page paperback redefines the term hater. Inspired by too many years in a life sucking corporate job, and supported by a deep groundwork of family, friends, relationships and real “life” in a dark corner of New Jersey; even cheerful optimists will commiserate with and come love to hate with author Matt DiBenedetti.

Sample pages:

It’s true: Misery does love company. But what kind of company can you keep if you can’t stand anyone? This kind. No matter who they are or what they do that sets you off and gets you going, you’ll find ’em inside. From rich people who are dicks to guys named Rich who go by Dick to those who are always cold to people who are just hot, no one is safe. But one thing is certain—everyone will find someone they equally despise. And you’re gonna love it, period.
