God, just being a person these days is exhausting! How are we supposed to know if what we're doing is good, bad, or somewhere in between? A lot of philosophers would say that having good intentions makes us good people, so as long as we're not trying to hurt someone, we're never really a jerk. But Batman — the best philosopher — says in Batman Begins "It's not who we are underneath, but what we do that defines us."
So even if we meant to do good, doing bad things makes us bad? There's no winning!
Thankfully, there is a place to go to find out whether or not you're a jerk, and that place is the internet. When you turn to an objective, clear-sighted group of Redditors, they'll rule one way or the other — either you are being a jerk, you're not being a jerk, or everyone in involved in the entire situation is being a jerk.
Check out these stories of people trying to figure out whether or not they've been a jerk, and then get the internet's unbiased rulings.
