7 Signs Your Friend Is a Jerk

This is good timing Monico, i’ve been a victim of abuse from someone who displays at least one of these traits this week!

Monico Perez

Came across this funny but true article on Inc.com that I wanted to share with everyone and make sure you either aren’t or stop being a jerk! LOL! Enjoy!


If you identify the jerks quickly, you won’t waste your time trying to work with them.

In today’s hectic world, you must decide quickly whether you want to mingle, work with or interact with somebody. Unless you enjoy being miserable, it’s useful to spot the jerks quickly, before you commit. Here are the seven “red flag” behaviors:

1. Badmouthing

Only a jerk–and an insecure jerk, at that–would attempt to make himself (or herself) look better by disparaging others.

2. Littering

Anybody who throws something on the ground and expects somebody else to bend down and pick it up is automatically a jerk.

3. Rudeness

Curtness to underlings and anyone else who “doesn’t matter” is always a sign of deep-seated jerkitude

Reflecting back….

Reflecting back on past events it’s sad that I had to go and have an accident to actually find out who in my life I actually meant something to.


The friends of which I never though I mattered in the slightest are actually the ones that miss me the most When you are ill you find out that you mean more to some people than you thought you did and the people that you hoped would be bothered about how you are they are the ones that show no interest.


There is no one special in my life right now, 2013 was a year of learning about myself in areas that I needed improvement, I made some silly mistakes of which I have learnt my lessons from and I look forward to the months ahead especially the ones when I can go out and meet up with new people.

1st to 6th September 2013.

My teenagers were away this week and I had the support of friends to come in and feed me. Lots of home cooked meals have been prepared and bought in plus a lovely Paella cooked in my kitchen.

Fortunately, i work from home promoting Organo Gold and World Ventures and then provide my Social Media Strategy Consultancy. I did intend to go to London on 6/9/13 to meet up with #Sunzu /past #Ecademists but this had to be cancelled. Fortunately, alot of these contacts are on Facebook & Twitter so they are really close at hand for me and networking online has been something i have undertaken for the past twenty years so I am quite competent with it.

Just have to put a few projects on hold and concentrate on finding some new ones where i can just be online to share content and will need to start using online tools i.e Google #Hangouts to have long distance conversations with potential new clients.

After anything to do with surgery the hospital gets you up and about as soon as they can and when they are sure you can walk and do a few things for yourself they let you leave. They then carry out assistance at home.  The Physio’s gave me a set of exercises to do to build the muscles in my leg and showed me the correct way to go up and down the stairs.  At home going down stairs is easy, going up I wish there was somebody to carry me.  Really a trial to get upstairs on one leg.  

On my ward were five ladies between the ages of probably 70’s to 93 years.   I haven’t had much to do with old people since my Mother past away in 1997. The lady in the next bed who was 93 was quite funny, she had totally lost her bearings of where she was and also didn’t know if it was night or day.  

I was so thankful for the electric point behind my bed to keep my IPhone on full charge so i could keep in touch with my notifications on the Social Networks and text to my family and friends.  

Food was good, nice to be waited on and since coming home I am blessed to have lots of help and support from my friends and people from church.

Well, when i came round after my hip opp it was lovely that my daughter stayed to make sure i was ok. Had to have screws put in my hip to aid the fracture to mend. Glad that i wasn’t having a full hip replacement as I know this is a horrendous operation.  The surgeon had read me terms and conditions and advised what could go wrong to get my signature but we believe that God sees us through these things and my dying at 52 was too young for me with so much yet to achieve and do in my life.

On the contrary, i haven’t experienced a lot of pain as this has been under control by medication.
