Oh. Oh gods. This is precious.
“Nice guys ARE nice, I am a nice guy, oh my gods stop making fun of nice guys and instead call them something else.”
If the words “I am a nice guy” ever come out of your mouth
And you aren’t currently engaged in the act of satirizing nice guys
You ARE part of the problem.
And you ARE one of these “not really nice guys.”
Oh okay. So in other words, saying that you’re a nice person isn’t even okay to do anymore.
So when I drove a friend from Vermont to Rhode Island and back IN ONE DAY because she wanted to attend a local TV interview about a video of hers that had gone viral, I wasn’t being a nice guy?
When I made that same drive to Rhode Island, on a separate occasion, to be there for a friend after her grandfather passed because she needed me, I wasn’t being a nice guy?
When I gave money to a woman who had a young child with her and was trying to ride the bus, but didn’t have the fair when she thought she did, I wasn’t being a nice guy?
I got nothing back for any of these things, nor did I want anything back. I’m only even mentioning them now because you seem to confused over the definition of what “nice” is.
So what was I being if not a nice guy? Please, I would LOVE to hear.
yo bro if you don’t fit the definition of what this blog and others are labeling as “nice guy”, they’re likely not talking about you! see, language has this cool aspect to it where you can refer to different things using either similar or the exact same phrasing and then work out the meaning behind it through use of context clues!
and also yes man you’re kind of a douche bag for taking the time to detail out scenarios wherein you behaved like a decent human being like that’s weird or you deserve a cookie for it or something. sometimes, as human beings, we do nice things! that’s not unusual. anyone is capable of being nice. and i’ll fucking bet you’ve done some mean things to people, as well! it’s part of being a person.
