20 Ways To NOT Be An Asshole

Ok, so this list is not complete….but after the day I had, it just felt like the right thing to do! Ha! Here are 20 ways to NOT be an asshole!

  1. Drive on your own side of the road! Watch what you’re doing before you end up killing someone!
  2. Put your phone away when you’re driving. Idiot.
  3. If you’re going to critique someone’s writing, then make sure you use proper capitalization, punctuation, and grammar while doing it. Yeah, YOU.
  4. Be respectful and use the good manners your mother (hopefully) taught you when dealing with others.
  5. If you or your child receives a gift from someone, the very least you can do is ACKNOWLEDGE the gift giver’s attempt.
  6. Be nice to animals. Just because you think God put them here for humans to use, doesn’t mean that God wanted you to be an asshole and torture them.
  7. Don’t try to beat an older person to the door and then NOT hold the door open for them! Your grandmother would be ashamed of you!
  8. Try putting yourself in someone else’s shoes for a change. Empathy, it’s a real thing.
  9. Stop trying to convince others that they’re wrong and you’re right. You aren’t going to convince them because they have their own reasons for thinking and feeling the way they do. Just STFU.
  10. Don’t lie and make up stories to make yourself look good. It’s really pathetic.
  11. Shut up and listen to others. What you have to say is important but if you shut up long enough you’ll find that what others have to say is equally important.
  12. Don’t be lazy. Do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done.
  13. Wash your own dishes. Don’t expect your girlfriend/mom/sister to do them because you think it’s “women’s work.” With that attitude, I guarantee someday that dirty cast iron skillet is going to leave a mark on your skull.
  14. Replace the toilet paper roll when needed. It’s not that hard. Not even for a 2-year-old.
  15. Don’t eat or drink the last of something and then put the empty package back. Don’t just leave ONE freakin’ cookie in the package either, you douche.
  16. Don’t hold up the 10 items or less lane in the grocery store when you clearly have 35 items in your cart!
  17. Stop thinking you’re so damn perfect because you’re NOT!
  18. Don’t talk with your mouth open, you animal. Your Gramma would smack you.
  19. Stop thinking you have the right to tell adults in your life what they can and can’t do. They’re adults. They make their own decisions.
  20. Don’t wait until a chore is nearly finished by someone else before you ask if they need help.

 

I could go on forever and I may continue at a later date. What would you add to the list?
