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! I am 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 really 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 neighborhood, where everyone helped each other and were mostly friendly. No one stepped on each others toes. No one took advantage of each other…

Then I went in to business years ago and had a rude awakening… There are people that 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…
