As “Dear A$$hat” looks like it’s going to actually turn into a blog series (I will have fodder for at least as long as I am paid to interact with people), I want to take a moment to define, well, things.
There are many words I could use – some that would be less offensive – but none were as perfect. To take the top definition from Urban Dictionary: “One who has their head up their ass. Thus wearing their ass as a hat. Asshat.”
These are in no way a reflection of my work conditions; where I work is pretty great, as day jobs go. It’s just that sometimes the levels of ignorance, arrogance, and entitlement all come together in that Special Someone who needs to be shared with the world.
