Of course, there are more signs.
- You’re wearing a blue tooth. You look crazy, not bad ass. If you are currently driving a vehicle, then a bluetooth is understandable. If you’re standing in line somewhere, or walking down the street, maybe just use your cell phone like a normal person. Bad asses don’t need fancy gadgets. Fancy gadgets hope bad asses will use them.
- You use pick-up lines. Bad asses don’t need pick-up lines; they just know how to get laid. And they do.
- You think Guinness is yucky, and you have other weak ass drinking habits. Bad asses drink intense, bad ass drinks. That means whiskey, gin, heavy beer, and generally German/Irish ales. There is no light beer. There is no need for Long Islands, or whatever else comes in a fish bowl. Bad asses are fine without frills.
- You can’t drive stick shift. Why can’t you? C’mon. This one is a given.
- Your masculinity is challenged and/or you feel uncomfortable wearing pink, going to the opera, shopping, cleaning yourself, etc…* Man or woman, you need to be self-assured to be bad ass. Plus, bad asses can appreciate a beautiful piece of art, taking care of themselves, and high-culture. They’re not animals!
- You think a Hummer is more bad ass than a Prius. Wrong. A true bad ass knows that driving a Prius is way more bad ass than driving a Hummer. Hummer’s are wasteful, and bad asses are economical in all they do. They don’t want to expend a bunch of useless or unnecessary energy to get something done. Why would they want to drive something that did? Also, a bad ass realizes that driving a Hummer tells other people that you are self-conscious about your “size.” Bad asses are definitely not worried about “size;” they’re good.
Bonus list for dudes only! Read below:
- You can’t grow a beard… Um, bad asses are at least able to do so. Most of them shave twice a day.
- Every chick that won’t sleep with you becomes a “bitch.” Bad asses can handle rejection, though it rarely happens. Still, when and if it does, a bad ass knows that only little bitches think every woman is a bitch.
- You’ve hit a chick. Sean Connery is the only bad ass who has done this. It’s still not really okay.
- You’re straight, and gay dudes make you nervous. Again, bad asses aren’t worried about what other people are doing. Also, gay dudes are not attracted to every other dude. Deal with it.
*This was re-worded for clarity. We agree that bad asses can maintain their bad ass status whilst attending the opera. In fact, we think many bad asses can appreciate the opera. They’re too awesome not to.
