You're a hypocrite who thinks you're the best person who has ever lived, but you're not alone. We're all that way, and it's just fine—so long as you forgive everyone else for the shortcomings we all share. Every one of us feels we are the best person we know, and if you don't believe this you're either lying or there's something wrong with you. Before you go write and angry comment or email let's talk about this for a minute.

Why You're an Asshole (and Why That's Just Fine)
I apologize in advance for my language in this post. And by all means, not every man is an asshole, as there are certainly some fine upstanding men that read and comment regularly on this site. In fact, perhaps I need to narrow the asshole definition down a bit to encompass just cheating men. Though I still think many of us men fail miserably in relationships whether a cheater or not. But wait, there are also some good men who are cheaters who just made very bad decisions and are truly trying to atone for them, show remorse and are doing their very best to help their wives recover and heal. However, if they do finally get it — it will probably be too late.
This column will change your life: don't let an asshole get to you
People who are strategic jerks are really, really dangerous. But tolerating abuse can impact your physical health, relationships and sleep patterns. Ask for a desk far away. In open offices, anything you can do to get a little farther away from the jerk will help. Reduce your interactions with the jerk to a trickle since he may enjoy watching you react.
O ne of the great strengths of the English language is the number of ways it provides to describe people who annoy us. True, German has the word "Backpfeifengesicht" — "a face in need of a punch" — but English overwhelms us with options, thanks partly to its abundance of vulgarisms. If I call you a "wanker" I mean something subtly different from a "dickhead". It can be hard to pinpoint these nuances without resort to further swearing, as demonstrated by users of urbandictionary. We can presumably all agree that Simon Cowell is a bit of a tosser.
