“There’s something wrong in this country when gays can openly serve in the military, but ‘our’ children cannot openly celebrate Christmas.” Rick Perry is an asshole, obviously. The first problem here is that these two things are not related. Gay people don’t hate Christmas. Most Christians who celebrate Christmas also don’t hate or feel threatened by gay people. Rick Perry is a crazy person who is trying to criminalize homosexuality while hiding behind his religion. Suck it, Rick.
If you are a dude and you call a girl a tease simply because she wouldn’t bang you for buying her a drink, it’s going to make you sound like an asshole. Actually, just expecting this to happen (if it you just think it) makes you an asshole. You don’t even have to say it to anyone.
You just complained that your parents won’t pay for your phone/car/trip/etc. You’re a grown-up. You have to buy your own shit, asshole.
You just complained about the phone/car/trip/etc. that your parents bought you. Only assholes complain about gifts. This isn’t “My Super Sweet Sixteen;” this is real life. In real life, if someone buys you a new phone, a car (new or used), or pays for other nice shit for you, you thank them profusely and you keep your mouth shut about the color/brand/make. It was free to you. It’s a gift. Get over yourself, asshole.
You say the following to your friends to help make them more cultured: “Well, I’m not claiming to be an expert, but while I was in Paris/London/Europe/Madrid/etc… All the locals did/said/wore [insert random, judgmental, and terrible idea].” Unless you’re really being earnest, you probably just made yourself sound like an asshole.
Calling yourself a visionary. No thanks, asshole.
You complain about what other people are drinking around you. “Oh god, is EVERYONE drinking Bud Light? Kill me.” “How can people drink Sam Adams and take themselves seriously?” “I’m so over beer; now, I just drink artisan wines…” We get it. You’re cultured. No one is forcing you to drink anything, asshole, so shut up and enjoy your $100 hotel-sized bottle of wine.
Your facebook status is about your Hummer/BMW/Mercedes/etc. and how much you hate. Basically anytime you’re complaining about how rich you are, you sound like a major asshole. This includes complaining about poor people, protesters, homeless people, and the like. This also includes being annoyed because your flight to your vacation was delayed, or that your limo wasn’t as big as you expected.
You think a lot of girls are obsessed with you. Hey asshole, unless you’re Ryan Gosling, you’re wrong. The only one obsessed with you is you, asshole.
You complain about other ethnicities, nationalities, and races. You are the major-est, biggest asshole of all. Congratulations, Captain Asshole!
