It was George Carlin who said, “Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.” Try as you might though, it’s usually the small, everyday annoyances that nag almost to the breaking point that can leave you in a state of misery and rage.

Lending his insights to this project is comedian Kyle Kinane. A veteran of Comedy Central as a stand-up artist and host of the digital series 30 Seconds Over Washington, Mr. Kinane has made a career of mocking life’s inanities. He graciously agreed to discuss some common, real-life scenarios and the best ways to not let them get the best of you.
