Now there is a probing question for the age.
And as usual a little FYI for your weekend enjoyment.
My daughter thinks Boomers are the biggest a/holes because they gave us the Tea Party and the presidency of Donald the Orange…..
Me? I think Millennials are the biggest……. because all they seem to care about is what play station they have, their energy drinks and hot pockets….or their obsession with make-up, fashion and influencers….the rest of the country and the planet can go to Hell as long as they know who is wearing the latest bathing suit…..
But which of us is correct?
Yes, there was actually a study done at the University of Georgia on this very topic. And the results were astounding. Researchers asked almost 400 people were asked who was the most aggressive, entitled, and manipulative person they knew. Overwhelmingly, the respondents named men with an average age of 42.71 years. The assholes in question spanned the gamut, from bosses and co-workers to friends or romantic partners. If the relationship was defunct, people were more likely to identify their ex-whatevers as assholes.
What makes an asshole an asshole? Well, to be scientific about it, these disagreeable folk were generally described as devoid of empathy, lacking modesty, and being uncooperative. But wait! That’s not all! Assholes were also identified as anti-maskers, Trumpers, alcoholics, eye-rollers, and animal or child abusers. (Real gems, clearly.)
Some of these traits you may recognize as also being similar to people with psychopathic, antisocial and narcissistic personality disorders, though the researchers were quick to point out that just because someone is an asshole doesn’t mean they’re a diagnosable asshole.
Unsurprisingly, participants had little trouble pinpointing the biggest assholes in their lives.
According to science we both are wrong…..but I will stick with my choice for I have seen nothing that would change my mind about Millennials.
Any thoughts on your part?
Let me know about the a/holes in your life.
