I was thinking....

All of my friends are wonderful.

It's hard to be objective about my family, but I like to think they're swell folks.

My co-workers are all great. I can't think of a single person at my job who I don't have genuine respect for.

Rarely do I encounter a true jerk in everyday life, so it's always a bit of a shock to me. I just don't see them very often. It's like seeing a giraffe. I always express a bit of wonder.

"Wow, that guy was a jerk!"

"Did you see that jerk?"

"That bar was full of jerks!"

When I come in contact with a real jerk, it's not even very unpleasant. It's just somewhere between alarming and amusing, like an unexpected spice in my food.
