…But It’s Okay If I Do It: True Confessions of an Unintentional A$$HOLE is a light-hearted look about gaining valuable insights when coping with a variety of relatable, yet sometimes absurd real-life scenarios.
Shirley Laffa doesn’t mean to be an A$$HOLE. But hypocritically tells herself it’s okay if SHE does it, in a pinch. Like after failing to recognize a celebrity guest at a work event or getting caught naked by her potential mother-in-law. This book will strike a chord with every woman who tries to be perfect in an imperfect world.
While attempting to become a ballerina/waiting tables and then enduring cubicle hell, Shirley learns essential lessons. Compounded by the pitfalls of demanding parents, she agonizes with obsessive worries and second-guessing herself. As a recovering people pleasing addict and chronic sufferer of foot-in-mouth disease, hilarious laugh out loud antics showcase Shirley’s own brand of offbeat self-help and unique humour.
We can all relate to embarrassing ourselves; struggling with relentless approval seeking; nagging obsessions about weight; relationships; and workplace tribulations. But taking the opportunity to gain collective wisdom from universal mistakes will lead you to ultimately realize we’re all in this together, and need to be kinder to ourselves, and to each other.
