It originally ran in the October issue of Harper's magazine and has been anthologized in Abnormal Occurrences. The baby-dog swap is also another story in the "Granted Wishes" trio, entitled "Ugly Guy" unrelated to the plot of Embittered Super. Charlie Bolger was the "super," which was to say, janitor of a large apartment building in the middle of the city.
He had had this job since as long as he could remember, and hated it, and the tenants he served, more every year. He had not been childish even as a little boy, and whatever playfulness he had known had long since been exhausted, yet now, almost lightheartedly, Charlie raised the toy and pointed it at the approaching mailman, a malicious individual who loved to load building supers with armloads of packages too large for the postal boxes.

He pulled the trigger of the toy weapon [ Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Lighthearted story about a lonely man whose toy gun makes people vanish Ask Question. As he pulls the trigger, the story ends like: Nothing happened. He was too young to have any really strong desires yet. Implying the gun can actually do anything you desire. I assume it's not this one, but it does sound a lot like Daniel Clowes's graphic novel The Death-Ray even down to parts of the ending. I don't think it has the part about the dog and the baby, but the main character does have a dog from childhood and into his adult years both periods of which are shown in the comic.
Opening lines: Charlie Bolger was the "super," which was to say, janitor of a large apartment building in the middle of the city. At this point I truly wonder if I have been cursed. I am no longer living; I simply exist. Barely, at that. Maximum, too radical to be true kind of story is more accurate.
A Story About Loneliness
Thank you, that is all. Wonderful and interresting blog indeed. I read all the stories because they are real and we can learn from them. I believed if not all, but most people experienced loneliness. Everyone has their own experience in life. I was exited to come to America the land of opportunity. I left my family, my business not knowing that I will be lonely.

The first 5 years of my stay was a struggle. All the the strange feelings like life has no meaning, emptiness, and loneliness. Back to my home country Philippines I did not hear someone who is depressd. I heard news about a lot of people in America are depress. My only solution is to talk to GOD in prayer, I cried out to him as my dearest friend. It needs enough faith to make things right.
