Asshattery

asshattery – definition: 1. Acts committed by an asshat or asshats. 2. Engagement in an activity normally reserved for asshats  (see asshat)

asshat – definition: 1. Idiotic, stupid. To act like a moron. 2. One who has their head up their ass. Thus wearing their ass as a hat.

You ever notice those stars/ thumbs up dealios at the bottom of every post? Ironically, they are not related to those gold stars my kindergarten teacher put on my finely rendered pictures of stick figures standing next to a lopsided house; I coveted those stars no end!

No, those gold stars have nothing to do with massaging my ego or gaining membership in my blog adoration club. I care little of matters akin to that.

The gold stars are a measure of whether or not you (as a blog reader) enjoyed the post. The star ratings are tabulated by the magic smoke thing that lives on my server and results are displayed in the right hand column of the blog. The two selections are aptly named Favorite Posts for the Last Month and Readers Choose Their All Time Faves. Not cleverly clever or even very original; just a means for readers to sift through all my dreck of 3 years spent writing this blog and perhaps glean a pearl or two.

Simple stuff until my Resident Asshat (RA) showed up about a month or so ago. My RA votes 1 on every post; be it political, good ol’ boy front porch humor or serious RV type business. One gold star. Everytime. I brought it to Miss K’s attention this week and she immediately launched into a very elaborate conspiracy theory rationale; if you ever need anything spun off into a conspiracy theory Miss K is your gal. Myself? I haven’t a clue as to the reasons behind the actions or the motivation of my RA . Moreover, I could care less.

Let me back up and say something about the motivations of such an individual because frankly it fascinates me.   My RA has made it a part of their everyday schedule to visit MyOldRV with the sole purpose  of creating (supposed) ill will or causing (perceived) personal hurt. Is that not bizarre to carry on in such a manner day after day and week after week? Bizarre and sad after a fashion…and honestly I do feel a measure of compassion for my RA.   Why the compassion?

Karma is a bitch.

    I don’t like being ugly just to be ugly. It’s kind of like not putting your shopping cart where it belongs at The Walmart or grocery store.

    Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts and experiences.

    Now I believe it’s a good thing to learn a new word everyday, even if you don’t remember it right off when needed. “Asshat,” I learned from you a while back, now when you sweetened it with “Resident”~~ That’s my new word for today, “RA”.

    I love going to school now that I have a new teacher. Thanks Andy

      Adding new words to the American Slang dictionary should not be the sole right of the young and socially beautiful people.

    This is about the second or tenth time I have read this blog. BTW, what the hell is a blog? Been hearing that for years now. Even read a couple of them… most of em about fulltimers and gging. And though I am not totally ignorant of all things new age electronic and such, I have no frikin clue what a blog is. I know what a snafu is. Is that something similar? Anyway I got sidetracked again. I have been punching the thumbs up chingasas because I like the posts on the “blog”. And after reading this I got to wondering…. again… am I the Asshat? Could I be the resident asshat that is only posting one star on this “BLOG”…. there’s that frikin word again. (Is that short for butt log?) Anyway, not wanting to be the RA I set about punching buttons, the thumbs up button but it only let me punch it once. So that didn’t work. And I was still feared that I might be the RA. So then I read the post from Snowbird. And I have found great joy and comfort in figuring out how to vote with more than one star and that you could actually vote just by running your cursor thingy over the stars until you got to the amount of stars you wanted and then punch that star. I am greatly relieved to know that I am not the RA, yet. LOL. But being that I am somewhat of a jackass, sometimes, I may now, with my new found skill become an asshat. MInd you one that still has no clue WTH “Blog stands for.
    YeeHaw!!!

      Clay,
      Just because you are not an asshat does not mean you do not qualify under another ass category. For example, there are:

      Ass holes
      ass wipes
      sorry asses
      dumb asses
      asses in cracks
      drunk asses

      I am a multi-ass qualifier myself; meeting the criteria for several different ass categories simultaneously.

    Seems many wear this Hat made from Ass, through unconscious efforts, while others use it as an Art Form.
    Example: the Dumb ASsHatter who takes up 2 parking spots to park their Scooter, or the one who leaves the grocery cart Behind somebody’s car. The daily efforts of lane changers, zipping, dodging, cutting others off so as to gain a few yards on the road gives me Gas aplenty. The daily efforts for just plain meanness, selfish acting, inconsiderate non golden rule following clueless social misfits like the pile of AZZHAT politicians in D.C. and constant stream of protestors bent on Be-itching about anything that makes sense. My wife has turned a deaf ear to my frequent corrective comments that are offered up in efforts to point out the many errors, mistakes, of judgement from wearers of ass hats because they are a blight to society and unacceptable under any circumstance. I prefer to explain it as teaching moments
