20 WAYS YOU CAN BE LESS OF AN AS*HOLE TODAY.

Sunday, 29 July 2018

Usually when I start writing a new post, I don't insert the title until I'm half way through and decide where I'm going with it. This was going to be a lovely post titled 'how we can all be a bit kinder' but then in the space of 15 minutes on my walk to work I encountered two a*sholes - a man who literally walked into me because he was looking at his phone, and then didn't apologise, and a woman who I held the door for who seemed to have forgot the word 'thank you' in her vocabulary. Thankfully I have this little space on the internet to rant to, so here we go guys - here are 20 ways to be less of an asshole.

1. When somebody holds the door for you, say thank you!
2. Show up on time to places, and if you're going to be late let the person know before they're sat waiting half an hour for you at a restaurant alone. If you have a lovely watch like this Adexe one I'm wearing above, then there's no excuse! 
3. If somebody doesn't know much (or anything) about the subject you're talking about, teach them, don't belittle them. 
4. Give out compliments, when you mean them. 
5. Offer to help someone when you think they might need it. 
6. Don't judge people based on what other people have said about them or their social status. 
7. Don't scroll through your phone when you're in someone else's company.
8. Stand up for people when they're not there to defend themselves.  
9. Take an interest in what people are saying when they're speaking to you, ask questions. 
10. If you know you're going to flake, don't agree to doing something in the first place. 
11. Buy a reusable bag for your groceries/bits and bobs. 
12. Don't use somebody's insecurities as the butt of one of your jokes. 
13. Appreciate the people around you, let them know when they've done something good instead of picking at all the things they do wrong. 
14. Offer to make a cup of tea if you're always on the receiving end. 
15. Pay people back or at least offer to. Even if it's £4. 
16. Be patient with people in customer service. Usually the decisions aren't up to them and after a long day the last thing they need is you complaining that your pizza isn't toasted enough. 
17. If you're watching a TV show with someone, don't watch more by yourself!
18. Don't walk into a shop 5 minutes before it's closing time. 
19. If you enter someone's room, and the door was closed/light was off, close the door/turn off the light behind you! 
20. Admit when you're being an asshole.

Which one of these annoys you the most? Do you have any other little things that people do that annoy you?

  1. Omg yes!! I hate it when you do something nice for a stranger and they don't say thank you. Or when someone bumps into you or accidentally steps on you, they don't say sorry. Manners are everything! Xx
