How to know if nobody likes you

The word “douche” traditionally means something very different to the current pejorative definition given below. I would, perhaps, not use it. If I were you.

“The term refers to a person with a variety of negative qualities, specifically arrogance and engaging in obnoxious and/or irritating actions without malicious intent.”

I suggest redeeming this flowchart by replacing douchebag with the more culturally appropriate (from an Australian perspective) “tool”… at least that’s how Joel described the type of character here.

And so, I give you, via “bits and pieces” the “Are you a Tool” flowchart…

For Ben – who is back blogging and has decided he likes the third person.

P.S. Ben is not a tool (unless he fails the flowchart test). And I am glad he is back blogging.

P.P.S. Oh yeah, if you got here because you googled “how to know if nobody likes you” then you probably should do the flowchart, and if you pass it, you should probably consider that actually needing to ask that question is probably a sign that you’re doing something wrong.

this flowchart fails to take into consideration that there are other situations where bluetooth ear pieces are necessary aside from driving. Like working on phones and needing both hands free to type/use a computer.

This comment fails to take into consideration that the flowchart is a joke.

I don't know that 'tool' has a particularly friendly origin either..
