An asshole is someone who consistently refuses to act human. Not, like, losing your temper or saying something bitchy once in a while.
This, pretty much. As someone who's half asshole (on my dad's side) and who has always gravitated towards jestery, I have to be super vigilant about not becoming the subject of the thread topic. Mean humor comes super easy to me, so I treat it as if it were a weapon: with fear and respect and as something that probably belongs in a glass case in my living room rather than on my hip. Being unnecessarily hurtful to others kinda kills my soul, so I've been pretty good about keeping my mouth in check. It helped a lot when I realized that quality laughs and kindness are in no way mutually exclusive.
