Video Licks: When The Men in Your Life Disappoint You, Just Get Crafty

Video Licks: Dru Johnston’s Customer Service Confidence Game Does A 180 in UCB-IRL

I recently caught this Fusion Comedy vid on the good ole Facebook and thought it was funny, charming and highly educational. A trifecta of goodness! For some of us the world can be just a slight bit intimidating. Yes, not everyone is born with blazing assertiveness like you. According to this UCB-IRL episode, 71% of […]
