Wow. It turns out there are WAYYYYYY more douchebags in the world than I thought. I received so many emails from readers with examples of common inconsiderate actions they encounter from douches everyday, that I decided to add more common douchey inconsiderate-ness to the list, as suggested by my readers.
Common douchey inconsiderate acts, part 2:
- Being loud/texting in the movie theater
- Not doing a 4-way stop correctly. Or a roundabout. Or anything traffic related.
- Requesting a million songs for the band to play, and then not tipping.
- Riding your bike on the sidewalk when there’s a bike lane.
- Not looking for bikers while driving in a town with tons of bikers.
- Not bringing alcohol to a party where it’s BYOB
- Not sharing your alcohol when everyone’s sharing
- Leaving dishes in the sink when there’s an empty dishwasher
- Not cleaning up after yourself
- Taking too much of one thing at a buffet
- Not calling your mother on her birthday
- Passing gas at the gym and then walking away (yes, this is an actual complaint from a reader)
- Throwing weights around at the gym (from the same reader!)
- Asking a girl out, then asking her to pay for both of you (yes, a dude actually did this. What a douche.)
- Only talking about yourself.
- Cursing inappropriately in public
- Bringing a trashy girl to a family function. (I don’t necessarily agree with this, but I thought it was hilarious!)
- Not paying, or offering to pay, for gas on a road trip.
- Hogging the TV
The list goes on and on…
Can you think of any?
