Portlander Problems #28 - Man Problems

My problems this week are inspired by my husband.
Portland Man Problems:
1. Finding out that your friend went and bought the exact flannel that you wanted.
2. Being a Portland guy whose facial hair situation won't allow him to grow a full beard.
3. Your friends labeled you a "hipster" because your brought PBR to a party. When the fact is, the PBR was on sale and you are just kind of cheap.

Click here to see the problems from past weeks.
If you live in the Portland area and want to share some of your own, I would love if you would submit your Portlander Problems to me. 
I will post yours one of these coming weeks.  E-mail me at kiralynnpdx@gmail.com.


  1. Ha! These are funny!

    I'm not sure if these are more Southern Oregon problems than Portland problems, but my husband is always complaining that he has to wear Carhartt pants for work, and he can never find his size in the store anymore because that's what the hipster guys wear now. He's always ranting about how he needs Carhartts to actually work, not to lounge around at Starbucks in ;)

  2. haha funny! i like the being a hipster because you brought PBR, turns out that sale was helpful to enhance your status in the world as a hipster

  3. So funny. If hipster=PBR we have a lot of hipsters here. ;)

  4. Hahahaha... loved it. See, my hubby is on the other side of the Portlander Problems. 1. He wears skinny jeans not because they are in, but because they don't get tangled in his bike chain. 2. He doesn't know when his beard is TOO bushy or TOO trimmed. 3. He gets upset if I choose a beer that isn't one of the really nice local micro-brews. It isn't "good" enough even though I got the same style of beer, etc.

  5. Kira, for some reason it wouldn't let me reply to the comment you left me regarding the cider! Weird.. so I thought I'd just head over here to give you the info. I went to their website, and was able to find lots of places in Portland that sold it!


  6. Haha, these are so funny! I feel like all of these can be applied to Providence, too...only we have actual hipsters, not just the Portland-type men ;)

  7. I love that PBR has somehow managed to become 'cool'. It was the cheap crappy beer no one wanted to drink in college and how its the ironic hipster cool beer that everyone wants to be seen with.

    1. Also, I know I've said this before but Portland and SF are like long lost twins.


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
