Asshat is quickly becoming a favorite term of mine.
It is starting to be used by a growing number of people as a way to express a not so positive view of a person. Scott Adams recently used it in his blog the other day in reference to the Govenor of Illinois (“Thanks to Govenor Asshat…”). Awesome.
I tend to use to describe one particular type of person:
This is the guy, and we all know one, who is usually a yuppie, or a yuppie-wannabe, driving the European Import of some sort that is tailgating you, in the slow lane or on a residential street.
He is the guy with the earbud permantly afixed to his ear, talking loudly in the resturant, movie, child’s sports event or band recital.
