We have all met a jerk who makes every situation difficult and never realizes that they are the problem. You don’t have to try to win over the haters; after all, you are not the jerk whisperer. Life is way too short to spend your valuable time dealing with jerks. Sometimes a jerk will have it out for you for no reason, they may verbally attack, try to belittle you in public or try to embarrass you.
I went to pick up my nephew from school one day, on the playground was a 40 year old jerk, one of the parents. I had heard about him from others, putting kids down while elevating his own kid to look better.
My nephew was applying to a high school that was challenging to get into at the time. This guy said to him, “Do you really think that you will be in the twenty percent who will actually get accepted?” I just couldn’t believe that an adult could be so unkind to a kid!
If you can get the jerk out of your life do so as soon as possible, don’t waste your precious time thinking about the idiot.
If you get tired of putting up with the jerk and their nasty behavior, here are a few snappy comebacks to let them know they need to back off.

I received this email from a jerk
The email made me laugh because this guy was such a jerk and yet he couldn’t see it.
He comes to a website with free content and then complains he has to scroll down slightly on his phone. Talk about first world problems, imagine if the Mark had to walk a mile to a well to get water for his family.
It would have taken him a lot longer to find the page to submit a comment than to scroll down past a couple of lines of text. We all have a choice of how we chose to spend time on this planet, some petty people spend their lives majoring in minor things.
Everyone has to deal with haters in their lives. I sent Mark the following message.
I should have said, “You have the rest of your life to be a jerk, why not take today off?”
They say that every bad situation contains the seed of good as well. I was thinking of ways to expand my content and Mark has just given me the idea to share emails from morons to prove a point.

Justin Timberlake had to deal with a lot of jerks in high school
Singer Justin Timberlake wasn’t so popular growing up because he preferred music to football and in the
state of Tennessee, where he grew up, that just wasn’t considered cool. He’s pretty popular with the ladies now, but he reveals he was picked on all the time at school and he had I had terrible acne and weird hair. When Justin was on the Ellen Dengeneres show he said, “The thing about life … is …… is … everything … you feel makes you weird is essentially what’s gonna make you sexy as an adult…. When you’re a kid I think you try so hard to fit in and when you get older you realize that fitting in isn’t really the thing that’s more interesting…. I would not be here if I would have listened to the kids who told me I was a terrible singer and I was a sissy…. Be different.”
