The Ploy 168: Don’t Tell Me How To Feel

We’re talking feelings, women, Facebook etiquette and bad customer service this week.

Mike and Paul discuss how Facebook affects our relationships and what some of the most annoying things about social media are. We look at the U.S. Presidential primaries, and how Trump and Bernie are fairing. Paul explains everything he knows about the opposite sex, looks, and basic bitches. While Mike had a bad customer service experience, and wants you to know about it.

I don’t know about you, but I might have a tear running down my face right now.
