Been There, Done That, Made a T-Shirt

Did you ever have one of those days? Today, I did.

Now that it's quite over and the bodies are neatly buried, I've made a t-shirt to commemorate it.

FU.

In case you should at some point find yourself having a similar day, please note that I've added it (on a few different items, including a mug and button) to the shop.

Sweetness, light, conviviality, gem├╝tlichkeit, etc. will return within 24 hours.

Hilarious! Some days we all need shirts like this! Sweetness & light right back atcha....

Ruby said...

Maybe you should have a shirt like this for flying around the country after the recent airline and flight events of dismal nature. But yes, this shirt would come in handy for many situations. I think we all need one.

Wendy said...

Awww. I'm sorry you had a rotten day!

Zardra said...

I so need this... Just found out I'm out of a job.

Think of us a free therapists. Take a deep breath, have a few glasses of absinthe, and tell us WTF Dolores did this time. (I hope she didn't try felting the neighbor's cat again!)

Fujiyamamama said...

Whoa! Sorry to hear it was a rough day.

Rainy Daisy said...

well said, sir.

Ms. May said...

Agreed, today totally blew -- and not in the good way.

Laura said...

Sometimes it just fits. Good for you for putting it out there--that's just real. Hope your tomorrow is better!

Jenn said...

Love it!

Rachael said...

Hate that you had a bad day. Love that we get this awesome shirt out of it!

FiberQat said...

Dang. It must have been a really crappy day to have to use that stitch.

honeysuckleblue said...

I'd love to be able to wear this, but I'd have to explain it to the kiddos...

HL said...

You know...here in La Crosse we're on the tail end of a festival supposedly celebrating all things gemutlichkeit.....

But wait...Dolores isn't allowed near Oktoberfest is she...

Hope tomorrow is better ;)

OMG! After the week I have had that would have been perfect! You are way to clever and witty...thanks Franklin, really needed that!

And that, my young friend, is why any given day is ONLY 24 hours long. (yes, I know it seems much longer, but it's really only 24)

Ah. I didn't know you were in NYC!

Hang in there Franklin.

Love the magnet...wonder how long before someone would notice it if I placed it in a discreet spot at work. Would definitely help the attitude.

subliminalrabbit said...

love. needed this yesterday. did i say love?

Redsheepbluesheep said...

We have days like that in the UK too. One of my LYSs has just been really mean to one of their employees. She should wear the shirt to let them know how she feels, but is too nice. I shall boycott the place (for a while;))!

NJ said...

Funny!

Bluefrog said...

Oh, yes!

Thanks, Franklin, I needed that.

This is what should be printed instead of the words, "at the same time".
Our college keeps changing it's name (Fraser Valley whatever). I call it F U.

lorrwill said...

Love.This.

knittingfiddler said...

Noooo! Not the gemutlichkeit!

Leigh said...

Unfortunately, I couldn't wear this shirt (which I love) on casual Fridays at the library. People would think it means something other than "Franklin Uberknitter".

Anonymous said...

Perfect, Franklin!

Our spinning guild is called Flock University. Yup - I think we need shirts like that...

"This too shall pass", etc. Good grief, you get a NSFW rating for this post! I had that day on Friday, supposed to be off work but had to come in anyway--then the computer caught a virus, and I finally just left.

I wish I knew you...you know, where we could chat or meet for lunch or have a drink. I sooooo relate to your bs. really. it is hilarious and I want to be funny too. Keep it up!!
You can be funny and express the angst for all of us. Thanks! MPTY!!

Barth said...

Oh my Bob! I totally needed that t-shirt yesterday. Ordering now.

lorrwill said...

Dear Mr. Franklin,

I just found your blog a little while ago and do not know you but I think it is time to visit your inner happy place, recover your awesome sense of humour and post something new.

Hugs,
Lorraine

Kara said...

Snark plus knitting equals best combo ever.

Trinity Ane' said...

Love it! No one ever expects that out of us sweet little knitting things ;-)

lolieshell@aol.com said...

dear Franklin, I agree totally....good idea. Gee, off the subject but are you ever going to launch 1000 knitters again. That was really an exciting idea, and I was a knitter at Ellens shop in Maine 3-4 yrs ago. I posed knitting the scarf and would love to see the pic.

Have you seen the "unofficial" video for the song by Cee Lo Green by the same title? As the MasterCard ads say, priceless!!

Minnow said...

I work at a State office at the front counter, and there have been several times since I started six months ago that I have needed this shirt. And felt the exact same way!! Could you, perhaps, have these drawn up as postcards? Cause I have some people that I'm thinking of....

Rosemary said...

Love it, Franklin! Do you think you could add a blank tank top option? I almost never where proper tee shirts.

Rosemary said...

Black, not blank. Blank would be stupid.

I wanted to post you a very small note to finally say thanks a lot yet again for those awesome things you have contributed on this website. It has been really shockingly open-handed with you to present extensively exactly what most people might have marketed for an ebook to help make some bucks for themselves, precisely seeing that you could possibly have done it if you ever decided. The principles also acted to provide a good way to fully grasp that many people have similar keenness similar to my personal own to grasp way more when considering this condition. Togel Bola Online
