Unfortunately we don't carry this item anymore, but check out some other awesome products that your fellow smart masses bought!

  • Always look on the bright side of your glass!

You know the type - the downer. The drain on any party. The one that, right after an hilarious anecdote about the monk they met in an an ashram in Dhaka, deflated everybody with discussions of abject poverty in urban India. What a downer. Definitely a glass-half-empty guy. You know that idiom, right? Some folks look at a glass of liquid and say that it's half-empty, while others would quip that it's half full. Whichever you say helps to indicate if you're an optimist, or a pessimist.

Pessimists, some say, are more likely to be depressed, sap energy out of the room, and generally make for bad times. Optimists, in contrast, tend to be livelier, solicit smiles from their friends and colleagues, and be secretly despised by the rest of his coworkers as he cheerfully strolls down the hall whistling a happy tune smiling at everybody he sees all bright-eyed and jolly that big stupid jerk.

Still, there's a lot to be said about being an optimist. For example, if you're drinking out of our half-full optimist's glass, your drink is at least partially filled. See, the bottom of the glass doesn't start until halfway up, so your drink always starts half full.

Buy one for that annoying coworker that can't see the fabled silver lining! Buy one for the other annoying coworker that sees nothing but the silver lining. Buy one for yourself, just to keep your outlook positive. So put on your rose colored glasses, keep your chin up, and remember - it could be worse.
