“Instead of a swear jar, I have a negativity jar” (joke)

"Is the glass half empty or half full?” is a common expression. A joke version was posted on Twitter by Bob Kostic on February 15, 2018:

“Instead of a swear jar, I have a negativity jar every time I have pessimistic thoughts. It’s currently half empty.”


Wikipedia: Is the glass half empty or half full?
“Is the glass half empty or half full?” is a common expression, a proverbial phrase, generally used rhetorically to indicate that a particular situation could be a cause for pessimism (half empty) or optimism (half full), or as a general litmus test to simply determine an individual’s worldview. The purpose of the question is to demonstrate that the situation may be seen in different ways depending on one’s point of view and that there may be opportunity in the situation as well as trouble.
