Common Senseless

Common Senseless


Budding college students are warned not to walk alone at night and never to accept drinks from strangers, but what do you do when you get poison ivy in your butt and turkey fat on your brand new jeans? Now, one hysterical, no-holds-barred college grad is here to tell you what you probably should already know. That is, unless, like author Ashley Glenn Miller, you are hopelessly common senseless.Common Senseless is the riotous revisit of the college years of one former coed, who left home for school in South Carolina with plenty of ambition, but not a lick of common sense. A contemporary Clueless written in the raucous vein of Chelsea Handler, this half-memoir, half-survival story features a compilation of real-life incidents as the author stumbled through one mortifying misadventure after the next. It's a tell-it-like-it-is manual for the first years of life on your own that may just help you or a new grad that you know avoid a few blunders, or simply have a good laugh.As Miller meets every imaginable pitfall in her first foray out from under her parent's roof, her major miscalculations span every aspect of life, including finances, travel, shopping, and more. Who knew you had to thaw a turkey the day before you cook it? Or that cruise control didn t actually steer the car for you? On the financial front, the author cautions on the peril of bringing your credit card to bars. When it comes to the all-important topic of shopping, the author warns about 'sale goggles and return policies. Wherever her common senseless path takes her, the outcome is as deeply embarrassing as it is highly entertaining. Common Senseless doles out words of hard-won wisdom, of the Do as I say, not as I do variety. Pick it up, flip its pages, and try to keep a straight face!
