Fun Monday~ I'm a jerk, too!

Ok, this week's hostess for Fun Monday, The Sauntering Soul herself, wants to know she's not alone in being a "jerk". Honey, you are most definitely not alone! We can all be jerks at one tiem or another, some more oftern than others...


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!

I asked my hub what makes me a jerk. "Bitch, bitch, bitch. Whine, whine, whine. And no sex." Well...D'UH! How can we have sex if he lets our almost-4-year-old sleep in our bed??? And I sleep in the almost-4-year-old's room! C'MON!

Do I need to explain why I bitch alot? Geesh...

I like to box in asshole drivers on my way home from work. It's fun and highly entertaining on the 45 minute trip.

My husband refuses to put his dirty clothes in the hamper. He piles them on the floor RIGHT NEXT TO THE HAMPER! So, I take his dirty clothes and string them across the bedroom floor so he has to walk on them when he gets home. Get the hint!


Other than those minor things, I am a perfect model of un-jerkiness. Really, I am. Just don't ask anyone I'm related to or work with or the chica a buy my cafe con leche from in the morning.

I've done this so many times:
"I like to box in asshole drivers on my way home from work. It's fun and highly entertaining on the 45 minute trip."---when they pull in front of me and make me slow down my speed, I tail gate 'em all they way to their exit and flip 'em off.

I love all the things you do~ I asked my hubby only last night why he failed to put his clothes in the laundry basket~ response because I use to put my radio on!!

Hahahahaha... Darn husbands. Most of us wouldn't be nearly as jerky if we didn't have them... That clothes thing drives me up the wall.

If my husband doesn't put his dirty clothes in the hamper then I won't wash them. He. I have that boy trained so well.

WHAT?!? Not having sex makes you a jerk? Then - my husband must really HATE me right now. heh heh.

Okay - if I put my husband's dirty clothes strung out on the floor, he would just step around them. I have figured out that he NEVER gets those hints. I have to be direct with him. (yet, I know I've told him a thousand times to put his dirty clothes in the hamper....he just isn't listening!)

I think I might try Nikki's idea.

First of all, PRETTY site! Love the bright colors and pattern.

And I guess all of our husbands know just how jerky we actually are. And we know about them too!

Be blessed.

Hee hee, did the laundry thing work?

And my 3 year old has a penchant for mummy and daddy's bed at the moment too. Arghhhhhh.

Hehehe. I work at the same company as "the ex-boyfriend from hell" and every interaction with him is handled "by the book" since he tried to harrass me! He is such a creep. I make him follow the formal established written process/company policy for every little request he needs to make of me no matter how insignificant. It's for my protection more than anything else, but there is a certain pleasure (and not the least bit guilty!) in the inconvenience it causes him. And he knows if he gets out of line again, I am going straight to HR, so he can't even complain.

A guerilla jerk--I love it! Make them figure out why things aren't going their way.

Not sure what to say. I know BG and he can be tossed into the snakepit along with mine. hehe

Sauntering Soul said...

I think you might be my new hero. This cracked me up!

SwampAngel65 said...

Olive, that would be an insult to the snakes!

And I am flattered, Sauntering One. Flattered but am not worthy.

Actually,. I must be PMSing because your comment made me cry...

My verification word is hezill I like hezill - Maybe you needed to keep the sewing machine?
I still hate the back drop and your only keeping because you are a JERK with a Big Fat J.

Give the lady a prize!

I was married previously and the ex did that clothes thing. I read in a Christian book to nail the clothes to the floor. Never did have the guts to try it but. . .

I’m a little late checking in … but methinks you’re NOT a ‘jerk’ for any of these behaviors! Mine’s at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,
