Josh and Sarah sat down with Aaron James, UC Irvine political philosophy professor and author of Assholes, A Theory. In conjunction, here's a quiz to help you determine which side of this particular fence you fall on.
Are you an a-hole?
1. The only available spot in a parking lot requires an "accessible parking permit," which you don't have. What do you do?
A) Keep driving around until another spot opens up.
B) Snatch it up. And then just start honking for no particular reason.
2. Your dog has pooped on a neighbour's lawn. Do you:
A) Clean it up immediately.
B) Clean it up immediately - but only so you can leave it on your ex-wife's lawn.
3. You have to pay for something, and there's a serious lineup. You hate lineups, so you:
A) Wait patiently. It's not the fault of that confused teenage cashier.
B) Call your lawyer.
Mostly As: You are not an a-hole. Hope you enjoy being taken advantage of by society.
Mostly Bs: Congratulations! You're a major a-hole. (Not that you care what we think.)
