So I met up with some of my buddies at the club last night. At some point I start talking to my friend Tom who I grew up across the street from and have known since second grade. He’s really happy to see me, two sheets to the wind and acting like the class comedian. At some point he starts talking to me about something and says
“You know like these douchey guys who wear scarves and type on their macs in starbucks, like hey look at me and my scarf.”
The entire time he’s saying this I’m looking over and him and thinking to myself
“Hey I wear scarves and used to own a macbook and plan to buy another. Minus the starbucks thing you’re talking about me here.”
Of course he didn’t realize he was talking about me when he said it, because at the time I wasn’t wearing a scarf and the macbook was replaced by a Bud Light Atwater Brewery Winter Bock (gotta watch myself there).
But it got me thinking, people are using this term douchebag or douche or whatever to describe almost every type of guy these days.
I can just see the guys with the two layers of double popped collar polo shirts standing there making comments about the douchebag in the t-shirt and jeans over there.
It doesn’t seem to entail a certain type of guy anymore like it used to. People use it all the time to describe anybody they don’t like the looks of. It’s now become interchangeable with snob, geek, hipster, jock, prep, you name it. I’m starting to think it’s getting out of control.
