"Three Pickles and a Failbox"

"Three Pickles and a Failbox"

Jay discovers a single mailbox built into the middle of a residential sidewalk which leads to criticism of local government, tales of Yakuza corruption and a not so fond memory of Eric crushing a mailbox with a U-Haul. Eric is bestowed a secondary nickname of “Three Pickle E” when J & E try to find new ways to zen out when strangers freak in restaurants so they can feel comfortable returning as guests.


J&E break down the possibilities of how and why a single mailbox could have been built into the middle of a residential sidewalk. 

Conversation branches into criticism of local government and support of blue collar workers forced to carry out their inefficient and likely corrupt decision making. This leads, of course, to discussion of Japanese Yakuza gangs and their origins and strategies. 
 

Eric tells a sordid tale of crushing a neighbors mailbox with a U-Haul and this situation is broken down and analyzed as J&E cry laugh through Eric’s humiliation. 

Eric is bestowed a secondary nickname of “Three Pickle E” when J & E concoct new ways to zen out in lieu of freaking out during customer service calls and restaurant orders.

The Tragedy Academy is a show created to bridge societal divides in a judgment-free zone using candor and humor. 

Be cool. Keep Learning.
