Share via Email Illustration: John Holcroft One of the great strengths of the English language is the number of ways it provides to describe people who annoy us. True, German has the word "Backpfeifengesicht" — "a face in need of a punch" — but English overwhelms us with options, thanks partly to its abundance of vulgarisms. If I call you a "wanker" I mean something subtly different from a "dickhead". It can be hard to pinpoint these nuances without resort to further swearing, as demonstrated by users of urbandictionary. We can presumably all agree that Simon Cowell is a bit of a tosser.
A catharsis for the frustrated moral philosopher in all of us, and a place to finally find out if you were wrong in an argument that's been bothering you. Tell us about any non-violent conflict you have experienced; give us both sides of the story, and find out if you're right, or you're the asshole. This is the sub to lay out your actions and conflicts and get impartial judgment rendered against you. Were you the asshole in that situation or not? Post should be truthful and reflect real situations.
Am I an asshole? By Dear Fifi Tuesday 1 May , 6: Speaking of feelings… Come at me. I was hesitant to mention social anxiety because it suggests this is in my head.
I made so many mistakes younger. I seriously diminished economic opportunities.which as led me to really look hard, crunch numbers, and maximize returns. To be fair, I'm a 50 year old investing like a 30 year old right now in terms of risk tolerance. But I'm doing so with more information, which makes me manage risk better. I get strange looks when people see me get happy about market falling. My current thrift plan value amount means nothing to me. Those dollars aren't real. I don't have them. I only have shares. I want shares to go on sale a lot. I like to buy things on sale, then cash them out later for more money.
