Dealing with Jerks

Whatever you end up doing online, there is no getting away from Jerks. Jerks are everywhere. Usually, they think they are better than you are. Their ego drives them to confront people with malicious words and actions…

Most of the time I am pretty good at ignoring them, but once in a while, one will get under my skin. Sometimes they say things that are a direct blow at YOU and it becomes personal…..

BUT WAIT! Am I guilty of lashing back? I’m not saying I haven’t. I need to keep myself in check…

Normally the best course of action is to walk away. Choose your battles wisely.

A jerk can take you by surprise and make your blood boil. It can make you want to find his physical address and confront him or her…

I think the best thing to do is just take a walk. A break.

If it’s in a thread, don’t look at that thread again. Sometimes you have to defend your territory or something you believe in, but don’t get personal back… Just lay out the facts.

AS LONG as you are in business, you will have to deal with Jerks…

I used to think that people were generally good to each other. I grew up in a small town, in a middle-class neighbourhood, where everyone helped each other and was mostly friendly. No one stepped on each other’s toes. No one took advantage of each other…

Then I went into business years ago and had a rude awakening… Some people will seek you out and rob you blind…

Guard what you have. Take every precaution you can to protect your territory.

That Jerk you run into; keep an eye on him or her… Make a mental note. That might be the person that steals from you… They might be just having a bad day, but take note.

The world is full of Jerks and a lot of them have discovered the internet…

SOMETHING JERKS DON’T UNDERSTAND…

Building that type of reputation is not healthy. It will turn people against you that could have helped you. It will keep you from reaching your potential…

Build relationships. Help others. And don’t be a Jerk…
