Are you a Jerk?

Some say that the age of chivalry is past, that the spirit of romance is dead. The age of chivalry is never past, so long as there is a wrong left unredressed on earth.

Sometimes I look in the mirror and wonder why I'm a good person. Because it hasn't seemed to really get me anywhere in life. Seriously!

Nice guys finish last? Yes we do! Our women always finish first. Multiple times!
My sparkling personality compensates for not being hung like a horse.

I’ve found treating companions with respect and kindness has paid off much more and I can’t act the way some solicitors do with the vulgarity and rudeness towards the companions. If your one of those go find another resource to connect with companions

Being polite is my general default.

I am also brutally direct, which some consider being a jerk.

I also am bluntly direct.
My clients want that.
And I get new clients through their referrals.
There simply are ways to tell folks politely they can do business things better by doing things a different way.
I have found that stupid folks do dislike the "s" word.

Amusing that I just had a similar convo with a long time friend as we watched sunrise from a barn loft.
