Anyway, SS is feeling a little insecure about her inner jerk because she wants company in arsehatland (take that, Kelley!) by asking this:
I know we all try to be sweet and kind to people the majority of the time. But let's face it....we also know that sometimes we can be a big jerk. It could be that you experience road rage from time to time. Perhaps you empty the coffee pot at work some mornings and don't feel like taking the time to start a new pot for the next person. Or maybe you don't return phone calls on a timely basis when you know someone needs a response from you. Have you ever "accidentally" ruined a favorite shirt of your spouse just because you didn't care for it? Come on - it's confession time! List the small things you do that make you a jerk and elaborate just a bit on each one. Please tell me I'm not the only jerk around here!Huh. I. Would. Never.
Well, I would too.
I admit to intentionally speeding up on the freeway so that someone who is trying to snoid into my lane can't do it (but only when that someone has been obnoxious first). And I am potty-mouth'ish about the whole thing, too. Road rage, anyone?
I admit to failing to push the "door open" button when a last-minute person is trying to get into the elevator. Ha! Gotcha!
I admit to a little passive-aggressive behavior at work with my boss. Because she. is. a. witch.
I admit to screening my phone calls (and not answering if I don't want to talk to you).
I also admit to making "blah-blah-blah" or "you really are a moron" faces while I'm on the phone if you really are being a moron. I would never make it if I had to use a videophone.
Sometimes, I am unintentionally a jerk. This was a prime example.
I hope you all feel better now, knowing what a total jerk I am.
So go visit the other Fun Mondayites and see what jerks they are. It would totally make me feel better about myself.
