How do people interact with, you know, other people? It feels like, whoever I'm talking to, I say something stupid or make a bad joke or in some other way looking like a total jerk. For instance, one of my friends just asked me to help them move, I hit them in the face with a pie. But that's not my fault, is it? I made it well known that I have no interest in helping them or anyone else move because I really don't like it!
And yes, those same friends helped me move into my place, but the entire time I reminded them that I would not be helping them move. It's not my fault if they thought I was doing a bit! Is it?
I don't know. Maybe it is. That's why Reddit's Am I the Asshole subreddit is so useful. Redditors can go and describe their situation and have the internet at large decide if they're in the wrong or not.
