But yes, we have Nick on the podcast.

Speaker:

How's it going?

Speaker:

I was doing pretty good, but it's getting really weird here really quick.

Speaker:

That is a, what you can expect here.

Speaker:

so, I know you do have a subreddit for tennis pod.

Speaker:

have you ever ventured over from the tennis subreddit to, uh, am I the asshole before?

Speaker:

I've actually never surfed the internet period outside of tennis podcast related material ever.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

is the internet?

Speaker:

You're like, what are, what else is the browser for?

Speaker:

But to get me to the ten-ish pod homepage.

Speaker:

Exactly.

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

I, uh, Avid Redditer and I sometimes peruse the ever popular.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole

Speaker:

you will fit in perfectly with this podcast, as it is aptly named.

Speaker:

I am a, the asshole episode.

Speaker:

So, I'm excited to hear some of your takes as an avid Redditer.

Speaker:

And an

Speaker:

avid asshole.

Speaker:

And an avid ass you'll fit right in then.

Speaker:

Speaker:

A wedding prank goes

Yeah.

Friends' life.

Speaker:

we'll get to that.

Speaker:

a wedding prank gone horribly wrong.

And after the break we have our very first ever listener submitted.

Speaker:

Speaker:

With all of that housekeeping done.

Speaker:

It is time to jump into the fund.

Speaker:

That's my rhyme for this week.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

Damn Drake,

Speaker:

Have you been rhyming everywhere?

Speaker:

I have been rhyming I'm on a five, game win streak with rhymes.

Speaker:

So,

Speaker:

looking at.

Speaker:

the dedication I put into is almost zero.

Speaker:

I just look up for things that rhyme with other things

Speaker:

Impressive.

Speaker:

Thank you.

Speaker:

Thank

Speaker:

scaled.

Speaker:

so first story.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole for honestly telling my girlfriend what I would change about her.

Speaker:

Oh, no.

Speaker:

Not off to a good start.

Speaker:

you're getting, uh, am I the asshole right off the bat from everyone?

Speaker:

It looks like, so jumping into it, I watched a tick tock where a couple asked each other what they would change about each other.

Speaker:

And they both said nothing.

Speaker:

They're both perfect.

Speaker:

And that they love each other very much, et cetera.

Speaker:

So I thought, let me try this with my girlfriend without filming.

Speaker:

Of course she said, quote, I wouldn't change anything about you.

Speaker:

Maybe I would make you less anxious about everyday stuff, so you wouldn't suffer.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

Dan was fucking

Speaker:

Can I have that one too.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I would also like that.

Speaker:

He says he continues on, he says, it's true.

Speaker:

I tend to be very anxious and obsessive compulsive sometimes, but I'm dealing with it.

Speaker:

Then she asked me what I would change about her.

Speaker:

Oh, buckle up.

Speaker:

Where's the

Speaker:

Yeah, I'm tightening the buckle right now.

Speaker:

There's going to be turbulence in air.

Speaker:

yeah, make sure those airbags are working.

Speaker:

I went on to tell her I would like her to have her old body back.

Speaker:

Oh, no, Sean's getting up.

Speaker:

You're a goner dude.

Speaker:

You're done for bro.

Speaker:

It's over man.

Speaker:

are the asshole.

Speaker:

he goes on to clarify, let them finish.

Speaker:

He says meaning before the pandemic, when she was more muscular and a bit thinner.

Speaker:

That

Speaker:

doesn't help.

Speaker:

you let him finish?

Speaker:

Why would you even let him.

Speaker:

Hang on.

Speaker:

Is that the end?

Speaker:

No, I am not even I'm maybe halfway done.

Speaker:

Uh, there's a lot more justifying that goes on in the rest of the story.

Speaker:

also I told her she could be less hairy in some areas like her face and arms, and I wish

Speaker:

her hair was face as well.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Oh, my God

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

unpardonable

Speaker:

sin.

Speaker:

Sorry,

Speaker:

I wish your hair was more cared for.

Speaker:

No, that's okay.

Speaker:

This is ludicrous.

Speaker:

so how many, how many Xs is that?

Speaker:

Is that all of

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

10.

Speaker:

All of them.

Speaker:

Ten-ish about.

Speaker:

tennis, the crossover, we didn't expect.

Speaker:

to ten-ish podcast available wherever you find your podcasts.

Speaker:

So this asshole goes on to continue to say, I wouldn't change anything fundamentally about her appearance.

Speaker:

Maybe make her legs a little bit thinner, but all of my requests are very much achievable with a little effort

Speaker:

I got to eat Tums because this is making me don't pick

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

literally did grab a

Speaker:

thing of tones.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

she didn't seem to appreciate my comments.

Speaker:

Her expression changed, and she locked herself in her room without saying anything.

Speaker:

Yeah, no shit Sherlock.

Speaker:

No shit.

Speaker:

We slept on different beds.

Speaker:

And the next day she told me something very hurtful.

Speaker:

She said, quote, I don't think that your appearance is perfect either.

Speaker:

There are some, there are some issues, but I love you enough not to pester you about them and quote.

Speaker:

When I asked her what she meant.

Speaker:

She replied that she wished I followed her skincare advice to get rid of my acne and that I would work out with her more.

Speaker:

I told her the difference is that I was honest and she lied.

Speaker:

She didn't say anything about it, but it was pretty obvious that she had been crying the whole night.

Speaker:

She went to her sister's house and hasn't been responding to my messages.

Speaker:

So am I the asshole for being honest?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

before I even answered that I want to add.

Speaker:

What is this person thinking, like putting this on the internet?

Speaker:

Like, why are you

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

luckily it's anonymous.

Speaker:

So no one will ever know

Speaker:

I guess I just like, it's not my first 10 thoughts to be like, I'm going to go detail.

Speaker:

I don't know how you can read that back to yourself and think, oh yeah, people are going to think I'm not the asshole.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

People are going to side with me, for slightly critic, slightly criticizing my wife's body or my girlfriend's bought.

Speaker:

Like what an ass, Sean, you, you reacted pretty hard there.

Speaker:

Do you want to go in on this guy?

Speaker:

Nah.

Speaker:

It's what can, we've all it's been said.

Speaker:

It's w there's nothing left to say he's a fucking idiot, bro.

Speaker:

it's just common courtesy.

Speaker:

You don't say everything that I dunno.

Speaker:

I dunno.

Speaker:

You can never say that to somebody.

Speaker:

You know what I would prefer?

Speaker:

You know, if you fucking lost some weight, you kind of gained some weight during the pandemic.

Speaker:

You letting your mustache

Speaker:

really

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

But I'm just saying the truth.

Speaker:

I just wish you were more muscular.

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

love you.

Speaker:

You're my girlfriend, but man, please shave the mountain man.

Speaker:

Beard from your face.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

And make those legs a little bit smaller.

Speaker:

It's attainable if you just work hard,

Speaker:

babe.

Speaker:

Of course.

Speaker:

this would be a bad clip if we just left it at that, Sean saying that shit.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Isolate

Speaker:

Sean's audio there.

Speaker:

I'm going to clip that part.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

It'd

Speaker:

be on people sometimes

Speaker:

I think we can all agree.

Speaker:

This guy would, make the top 10 asshole list, on Nick's podcast.

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

I like to ambush your girlfriend like that, by setting her up being like, oh, let's play a fun harmless game.

Speaker:

And then just absolutely roasting her ass.

Speaker:

Like how fucking dare you.

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

Bro.

Speaker:

She loved you enough to just be like, Hey, you know, I know you're kinda anxious about things, but she protected you mentally, my guy.

Speaker:

And next thing you know, you go ham on her.

Speaker:

I'm so proud of this.

Speaker:

You'd be like, bitch, you ugly anyway.

Speaker:

So fucking proud of her all.

Speaker:

I'm just saying I'm proud of that girl.

Speaker:

you have to be so confident in your own like

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

and aesthetic to fucking ever criticize.

Speaker:

Like

Speaker:

again, to bring up Chris Hemsworth's naked body, but you gotta be looking like Hemsworth to be saying some shit like that.

Speaker:

You can't just, you can't look like me and they'd be like, actually I know I'm morbidly obese, but actually if you can lose some weight,

Speaker:

you know,

Speaker:

I think that'd be great for our

Speaker:

she told you something to like improve your mental state would be

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

about you.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

She wanted to help you.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

Holy shit.

Speaker:

So, 1000% the asshole, , for this one,

Speaker:

We could have stopped it at the title.

Speaker:

My guy.

Speaker:

That's true.

Speaker:

so it's time to move on to the one that peaks Sean's interest.

Speaker:

am I the asshole for stealing my friend's life?

Speaker:

So it's like a weekend at Bernie's thing, you know?

Speaker:

This seems like we're delving into true crime.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

This is a new now a true crime podcast.

Speaker:

Um,

Speaker:

We'd be the worst.

Speaker:

we wouldn't be the worst year.

Speaker:

Oh, we'd have millions of views for the wrong reasons.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

so she goes into saying, I am a 24 year old girl, and I used to live with my friend Amy, before I found a better apartment that I could pay for by myself, I went on a brunch with Amy a few weeks ago, and we talked about work and finding jobs for our degrees.

Speaker:

We have the same degree slash went to the same school together, which is how we met.

Speaker:

And that's why we lived together for some time.

Speaker:

Well, Amy was talking about this interview for a position at a company that had a few spots open that fit our degree slash what we wanted to do.

Speaker:

she suggested that it would be a great idea if we both applied and would be awesome to work together.

Speaker:

And I agree.

Speaker:

later that day, I looked up what she was talking about and applied for the job and got an interview for the next week.

Speaker:

I texted Amy and she's just sent me thumbs up emoji.

Speaker:

And that was it.

Speaker:

I get to the interview and I nail it.

Speaker:

They love my entire resume and everything I'd done since graduating after that, I go to the company coffee shop, where I met a guy who also works in a field similar to mine, and I'm hoping we be something serious.

Speaker:

Two days later I had dinner with Amy telling her that I got a job and how I smashed the interview and about the new guy, well, Amy then angrily tells me how I need to shut up.

Speaker:

And that I swiped her dream job away from her.

Speaker:

She told me she already told everyone about the job and then the company called her back saying she wasn't what they were looking for.

Speaker:

That she basically had the job until I came and ruined everything and she was supposed to meet the guy of her dreams.

Speaker:

And instead I took that from her as well.

Speaker:

I told her that it was her idea.

Speaker:

that I apply and she said she was only joking.

Speaker:

Then left the dinner and texted me after saying that I was an asshole.

Speaker:

And then I need to give up my job position to make this better.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole?

Speaker:

No.

Speaker:

no it's laughable.

Speaker:

first of all, misleading title, my rights, Sean, like,

Speaker:

I was waiting for the

Speaker:

death.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

Oh, sorry, the, yeah, right at the bottom here, I then killed her, took her skin

Speaker:

Took her

Speaker:

There it is

Speaker:

allowed the job I used to have

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Maybe you are an asshole then if you took the skin, if you you'd just left the skin,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

If you just killed her and left her, she would be fine.

Speaker:

across the

Speaker:

exhibit a why we could never be true

Speaker:

Nope.

Speaker:

Never, never.

Speaker:

I have a question though, her friend that called her an asshole said to make this right, you have to quit the job, right?

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

like the friend doesn't expect to get the job in that case.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

Neither of

Speaker:

them would then have the job.

Speaker:

yes, exactly.

Speaker:

They would then be in the same.

Speaker:

That's bullshit.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

cause she already didn't get the job.

Speaker:

They're not gonna, I mean, maybe, you know, it's a hot job market.

Speaker:

Maybe if she quits, you might get offered the job again, but

Speaker:

it's

Speaker:

not likely,

Speaker:

Like she's the runner up or some shit it's like, oh, it's default,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

It's just like when you get rejected from someone and then they go and ask the other person

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

a rebound pretty much

Speaker:

you're a rebate.

Speaker:

rebound applicant.

Speaker:

Holy shit.

Speaker:

think there could have been better communication between the two friends during this process.

Speaker:

But aside from that, I think the person who posted this needs to find a new friend hire for new friend, do interviews for that

Speaker:

Call her for an interview, have her come in and then say, no, you're not, you're not a right fit for this position.

Speaker:

overqualified.

Speaker:

brutal.

Speaker:

You're under qualified.

Speaker:

It'll turn a true crime if holy crap.

Speaker:

any thoughts from you, John?

Speaker:

No, she's not an asshole at all.

Speaker:

Like bro, like, Hey, your friend was like, Hey, maybe we should do this, do that.

Speaker:

And she's like, oh, all right, bet.

Speaker:

So let me, what are you going to do?

Speaker:

Like you outperform somebody who suggested to do something with you late.

Speaker:

You can't get mad

Speaker:

Oh, but John they're just joking.

Speaker:

Duh.

Speaker:

I was just broken about applying for you,

Speaker:

Ah, but I can't read his hands.

Speaker:

Amy down.

Speaker:

I was just kidding.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

you're you're tripping, Amy.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Ah, yeah.

Speaker:

Your friend's kind of an asshole.

Speaker:

I think, if I was in this exact same situation and my friend got the job over me, I would be upset, but I wouldn't be upset at my friend.

Speaker:

You know, I want them to do the best that they can do.

Speaker:

And if it's my dream job and they get it, that means my friend has an awesome job and I should be happy for them.

Speaker:

so.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I don't know that that's a shitty situation, but you're going to find new friends at your new job.

Speaker:

So sweat it.

Speaker:

On the flip side, though, if we invite invited Nick over here and do it like a Tik TOK episode with us, and next thing you know, he has like a Spotify, a hundred million dollar deal.

Speaker:

I would probably fight Nick at some point.

Speaker:

We would steal his

Speaker:

Exactly.

Speaker:

I wouldn't steal the shit out of your

Speaker:

I, if I put glasses on, I could swing it.

Speaker:

I cause.

Speaker:

I can't, I'm pretty brown.

Speaker:

I shave a little bit, you know,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

can't grow like that.

Speaker:

I can't count to 10 though.

Speaker:

So that's my

Speaker:

only

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

What are you doing host in this then?

Speaker:

You

Speaker:

Exactly.

Speaker:

That's a requirement.

Speaker:

now nine ish podcast.

Speaker:

That's.

Speaker:

I haven't said anything bad about Nick, because once he makes the Spotify he'll be like that one guy was nice to me.

Speaker:

He was the only nice one.

Speaker:

the thing about Amy to the person in the story is yes.

Speaker:

It sucks that you didn't get your dream job, but your friend having that job could mean good things for your own career to down the down the road.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

baby.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Networking.

Speaker:

So I think we can all agree.

Speaker:

The poster, not an asshole.

Speaker:

Live your life to the fullest with this dream job of yours and this new guy.

Speaker:

smash, that job smashed that guy.

Speaker:

Do you SIS?

Speaker:

Advice to

Speaker:

live by.

Speaker:

Words to live by.

Speaker:

So, we will move on to our last Reddit.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole before the break?

Speaker:

Am I the asshole for uninviting?

Speaker:

My cousin, brother, uncle, and dad to my wedding a praying.

Speaker:

Depends on the Frank.

Speaker:

I want to hear it

Speaker:

Yeah, it depends on the prank.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

can be bad.

Speaker:

we'll dive in.

Speaker:

I'll give you a little bit more context before you judge.

Speaker:

So I, a 22 year old female grew up in a family where men prank and tease each other all the time.

Speaker:

Ever since my fiance, Tim, a 23 year old male, and I got engaged, my cousin, brother, dad and uncle joked about running some tests to see what type of man Tim is.

Speaker:

they've done stuff like forcing him to play chess four times in a row, which that sounds like torture,

Speaker:

not a prank.

Speaker:

Gotcha.

Speaker:

Gotcha.

Speaker:

Checkmate

Speaker:

recording four episodes in a row.

Speaker:

That is true.

Speaker:

That is

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I just say prank chia to them at the end.

Speaker:

I didn't hit record on any of these.

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

Oh, man.

Speaker:

Wait, this would be a true crime podcast.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

absolutely.

Speaker:

One way.

Speaker:

Tickets to Ontario, please.

Speaker:

so they pranked him by forcing them to play chess four times in a row, secretly slashed his tires to see if he'd fix it himself, like a man or get help, like one of those lazy guy.

Speaker:

they asked him questions like what jokes he'd tell his future.

Speaker:

Mother-in-law his opinion on abortion, Jesus, gender equality, et cetera you believe in, gender equality, you idiot.

Speaker:

What are you?

Speaker:

One of those weak men?

Speaker:

I was sarcasm by the way, please.

Speaker:

Don't take it out of

Speaker:

context.

Speaker:

There.

Speaker:

that audio

Speaker:

share it.

Speaker:

Yeah, clip,

Speaker:

that clip, that

Speaker:

makes the clips here.

Speaker:

clip, that clip, that.

Speaker:

they also tested his fishing and hunting skills, overwhelmed him with hypothetical scenarios to test his decision-making, slash mental skills.

Speaker:

they kept calling him slow and soft, but he has a metal condition.

Speaker:

and then in brackets it says asthma.

Speaker:

They, however, just think he's making excuses.

Speaker:

I demanded they stopped, but my dad said that it's just typical stuff.

Speaker:

Men challenge each other with and said that I was ruining the fun.

Speaker:

last week they took Tim on a three-day trip and hid his inhaler.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

I've

Speaker:

heard all.

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

invited.

Speaker:

Of course not.

Speaker:

You try to murder my fiance.

Speaker:

He left them in return home told me I was seeding after he said they admitted to hiding it as a challenge.

Speaker:

I exploded on them when they returned.

Speaker:

My cousin asked if little Timmy ran to me to tattle.

Speaker:

I yelled at all four of them that they are uninvited to my wedding.

Speaker:

My brother freaked out saying it was a prank and they were going to give it back.

Speaker:

My dad said, they'd apologize.

Speaker:

if I insist, but Tim will have lost the little respect they had gained for him and in their eyes will always be the soft college

Speaker:

It's a wrap.

Speaker:

to this shit anymore.

Speaker:

yeah, it is a rough, I called him and the others awful.

Speaker:

Then I left.

Speaker:

My cousin is begging that we talk, my uncle has been quiet, but my dad is so mad and he's getting my mom involved to get me to reconsider this.

Speaker:

But I keep refusing to reinvite them.

Speaker:

My mom is saying that I'm exaggerating and should let bygones be bygones and not let this ruin my relationship with my family.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole for making it my hill to die on?

Speaker:

Or am I

Speaker:

No, no.

Speaker:

Hey, fuck your mom too, man.

Speaker:

Your mom's your mom's a

Speaker:

Clip that clip, clip that clip back, clip that.

Speaker:

clipping all you want.

Speaker:

Hey Oop.

Speaker:

Fuck yo ma.

Speaker:

I would say mom's secondary asshole in this.

Speaker:

If we're, if we're giving asshole,

Speaker:

fuck

Speaker:

booty hole to like,

Speaker:

she's, you know what I mean?

Speaker:

start off

Speaker:

is like classic macho.

Speaker:

you know, there's a word for this, but like

Speaker:

alpha alpha

Speaker:

male

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

It's not cool.

Speaker:

Especially for like a dad with the fiance of your daughter.

Speaker:

It's just

Speaker:

lot wrong with this,

Speaker:

Well, it's, it's a power dynamic, right?

Speaker:

Like you're going, you're joining that family and for them to treat you like that and feel like they can just get away with treating you like that because you have to earn their respect like that.

Speaker:

That is fucked up on a whole nother level.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

Shout out to the fiance though, man.

Speaker:

Ooh, you are going to be a good wife to that homeboy.

Speaker:

you know, you're going to be like protecting his ass.

Speaker:

I love that.

Speaker:

That shit.

Speaker:

That's a strong woman, right?

Speaker:

Well, you have to think that a lot of men, the fiance of the poster in this situation would maybe just say, fuck this I'm out and not even be involved in this anymore, but he's stood by it.

Speaker:

Seven hours in the, what was it?

Speaker:

The woods without your inhaler?

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

scary.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

bullshit.

Speaker:

That's what that is.

Speaker:

definitely some bullshit.

Speaker:

Sean, did you want to, do you want to hop in here before we move?

Speaker:

I mean, everything's been pretty much said she, she is not the asshole.

Speaker:

They shouldn't be at the wedding.

Speaker:

And like, I don't know if they've been fucking torturing this man this whole time.

Speaker:

I probably would have . Told him, , you don't have to go on this fucking trip.

Speaker:

Like three-day trip.

Speaker:

They fucking, they treat you like shit.

Speaker:

This would have been, Yeah.

Speaker:

I dunno.

Speaker:

It sounds like she tried to get them to stop multiple times.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

I would be already fed up and then that for sure is way past the, crossing a line, you know?

Speaker:

Oh, a hundred percent slashing tires, like the chest thing.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

That'd be, that'd

Speaker:

Slashing tires.

Speaker:

I would be like,

Speaker:

yo, like,

Speaker:

What the fuck?

Speaker:

Uh, the chest, one's pretty

Speaker:

funny.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

Yeah, that'd be.

Speaker:

funny bit.

Speaker:

If they were like, oh, prank show made you play chess four times in a row.

Speaker:

You idiot.

Speaker:

gotcha.

Speaker:

that would be hilarious,

Speaker:

But once you get your tires slashed, he probably, it depends on the personality, I guess, but he probably feels like I can't even blow up at them too much because I don't want to strain the relationship between them and, my girlfriend fiance.

Speaker:

And you have to remember too.

Speaker:

I think she said she's 22.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

And they're getting married soon.

Speaker:

That's a long life left to live to have all this strain in the family dynamic.

Speaker:

You know what I

Speaker:

Not it won't be long if they keep taking his inhaler.

Speaker:

shit.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Jesus.

Speaker:

you're a hundred percent, right.

Speaker:

I think, ah, these, these guys seem.

Speaker:

Just very insecure, assholes, looking to power grab anytime they can.

Speaker:

I apologize that you and your fiance are in this mess.

Speaker:

, definitely do not invite them because that is a recipe for success.

Speaker:

, and you guys go live a happy life far away from those fucking assholes,

Speaker:

True

Speaker:

they are ready to properly apologize.

Speaker:

invite us instead.

Speaker:

Yeah, we'll go.

Speaker:

All four of

Speaker:

us

Speaker:

four spots.

Speaker:

Nickleby your dad,

Speaker:

I'll be your

Speaker:

dad yet,

Speaker:

and will be your dad.

Speaker:

Sean will be your.

Speaker:

John will be your uncle.

Speaker:

Who else was there?

Speaker:

grandpa

Speaker:

His brother.

Speaker:

brother.

Speaker:

there you go.

Speaker:

Nick, I'll walk you down the aisle instead of asshole who slashed your fiance's

Speaker:

tires.

Speaker:

depends on where the, you know, if it's like Minnesota in January or something,

Speaker:

Then maybe, not nickel pass.

Speaker:

If it's in Florida or something, nickel go.

Speaker:

But, uh, and with that, we're going to end off our Reddit.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole segment, but stay tuned because after the break we are going to be doing a listener submitted.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole?

Speaker:

So you don't want to miss that

Speaker:

All right, we are back and we are going to cleanse our palette by doing another mid asshole

Speaker:

Cleansed.

Speaker:

palettes cleansed from the, from the ad read.

Speaker:

hopefully it was good products and or services, and we're going to be jumping into our very first listener submitted mid asshole.

Speaker:

We have gotten a couple, so don't, don't worry if yours is not being read right now, we will do that in a future.

Speaker:

we appreciate everyone who sent one in once.

Speaker:

Again, if you want to retinol, Wiki pod@gmail.com or DMS on Instagram or Twitter, if you want us to potentially read your story on the episode,

Speaker:

we got listeners.

Speaker:

That's crazy.

Speaker:

For real.

Speaker:

So this is also our first, would I be the asshole?

Speaker:

So this has not occurred yet.

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

preemptive.

Speaker:

Preemptive asshole.

Speaker:

Assholery

Speaker:

Premeditated Assholery

Speaker:

whatever.

Speaker:

premeditated

Speaker:

Again, this is going to be a true crime show.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

would I be the asshole for cutting off my friends for being too friendly with my ex

Speaker:

What'd you guys be what'd you guys cut off your friends for being too friendly with your exes.

Speaker:

no, especially if you date it for a long time, it's.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

I just want to get Jen like, the neutral level, like just the posing, the question.

Speaker:

I want to see what you guys say.

Speaker:

So, I bumped into my ex last week and found out from him that he drove my best friend.

Speaker:

We'll call her a home after an evening that ended late at night.

Speaker:

My other best friend we'll call her B knew about this.

Speaker:

And didn't tell me, here is my issue with it.

Speaker:

I wasn't at the event.

Speaker:

N I explicitly asked a and B if they had seen or talked to him that day, they told me they saw him, but avoided him and didn't have any conversation with him.

Speaker:

I knew my ex would try to cross paths with my friends to ask about me, which is why I asked multiple times if they had talked to him and they blatantly lied to me.

Speaker:

The reason I asked more than once was because EY had spoken to him, after our messy breakup, even though I told her not to talk.

Speaker:

But she did.

Speaker:

And didn't tell me about it until I told her, my ex told me that they had spoke.

Speaker:

Normally I wouldn't care if my friends casually talked to my ex, but this specific X was horrible to me and sexually assaulted me.

Speaker:

oh,

Speaker:

oh,

Speaker:

So I wanted to cut them off completely and never cross paths.

Speaker:

Again, my friends knew very well, how much he hurt me.

Speaker:

And they knew that I wanted to cut them off as well.

Speaker:

They were not friends with him before I introduced them, nor did they develop a friendship while we were together.

Speaker:

it was not like I was asking them to cut a friend off.

Speaker:

okay.

Speaker:

It was me asking them to cut off someone who abused.

Speaker:

This one, cheeses me the most.

Speaker:

A, did have a ride that night.

Speaker:

it was a friend and she still took the ride with my ex.

Speaker:

So when I found out about this, I was telling me how odd it is that a took the ride with my ex instead of her friend.

Speaker:

And that's when I found out B knew about this, then B tried justifying , A's, actions by saying that a went with my ex because they lived only five minutes away from each other.

Speaker:

So it was more convenient.

Speaker:

Would I be the asshole for cutting them both off.

Speaker:

No.

Speaker:

So the friends know she was sexually abused, I'm assuming

Speaker:

or

Speaker:

assaulted.

Speaker:

Yep.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

No, there's too much trauma there

Speaker:

involved.

Speaker:

And it's, especially if their friends knew about it, it is so difficult for someone to disclose that type of trauma and

Speaker:

knowingly and knowingly going with someone who caused that said trauma and kind of ignored that fact that is very shitty for that friend to do.

Speaker:

Absolutely.

Speaker:

preach it.

Speaker:

She's not a nut.

Speaker:

She's not the asshole at all.

Speaker:

did you want to jump in any Nick,

Speaker:

I agree with what John said, and first of all, how can they be an asshole if they're listening to your show right.

Speaker:

And sending you in

Speaker:

ah,

Speaker:

So like,

Speaker:

Sean frequently listens to the show.

Speaker:

Okay, wait a second.

Speaker:

That is a duke.

Speaker:

Why did you say I listened to the show?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Shawn's like, no, I don't.

Speaker:

I absolutely

Speaker:

don't.

Speaker:

Well, I, I, I agree with John.

Speaker:

I'm not the asshole there.

Speaker:

There's that's the important thing about stories like this is, we all react initially to the title.

Speaker:

but you need the context because every situation, is unique in every situation has layers to it that you can't see from the outside.

Speaker:

So even people in their social circle probably wouldn't understand why she's not the asshole unless they know of the details.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

not the

Speaker:

And I, I can almost guarantee that like, they sound like the kind of friends that would spread the rumors, like, oh, she's attacking us or whatever like that.

Speaker:

these are not friends you want in your life.

Speaker:

They're not friends

Speaker:

you want backing you up.

Speaker:

they're the kind that's going to backstab you as they already have.

Speaker:

And, gaslit you into thinking?

Speaker:

You're the one in the wrong, so fuck them.

Speaker:

I would say you're absolutely not the asshole.

Speaker:

If you cut them off, Find better friends.

Speaker:

I know it's tough sometimes, but, anything's better than, than these two, I think.

Speaker:

it's been the theme of the episode is getting.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Get new friends and don't eat cake at an eight year old's birthday party.

Speaker:

Oh, wait.

Speaker:

That was

Speaker:

That was a previous

Speaker:

I was like, hang on.

Speaker:

shit.

Speaker:

for a minute?

Speaker:

No, no, that's my bad.

Speaker:

That's what happens when your cord too many?

Speaker:

I feel like Josh has tried to tell us something

Speaker:

What am I trying to

Speaker:

like that.

Speaker:

you?

Speaker:

know, that you want new friends, dude.

Speaker:

It's

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

would never do that.

Speaker:

Is this why Nick was brought along?

Speaker:

Cause maybe Josh wants to be like the permanent fill in or

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

fill in for now.

Speaker:

the tannish.

Speaker:

Am I the asshole podcast where we count down 10 of the worst assholes of the week.

Speaker:

Number one,

Speaker:

Sean, number two, John, you guys won't know until next, your next multimillion view Tik TOK video, where you see like the tennis pod logo integrated into yours and

Speaker:

like your names have fallen off.

Speaker:

This feels like a hate crime from my side.

Speaker:

Seems like, I don't know.

Speaker:

You're cutting off the two POC is off your show.

Speaker:

Josh.

Speaker:

It seems a little targeted, Nick.

Speaker:

no.

Speaker:

offense.

Speaker:

You're adding a not Filipino guy.

Speaker:

No, I would, I would never cut you guys off the show.

Speaker:

I specifically need you guys for thumbnail clips and reactions.

Speaker:

So, uh,

Speaker:

all, that's all.

Speaker:

We're good for Sean.

Speaker:

You know what I'm saying is.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

no, you guys, you guys would never backstab me like that.

Speaker:

I have a hundred percent guarantee on

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

and John can't backstab you, cause he doesn't have hands to hold a

Speaker:

that's true.

Speaker:

that, and I can't reach you because I'm not tall enough.

Speaker:

You've never seen what this man could do with those cheeks.

Speaker:

My friend.

Speaker:

Hmm.

Speaker:

He might stab me in the cheeks from that high.

Speaker:

That's true.

Speaker:

All right.

Speaker:

So, confirmed, not the asshole.

Speaker:

Friends are assholes.

Speaker:

X is a fucking,

Speaker:

well, he should be in jail.

Speaker:

Speaker:

Nah, I'm good.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

I'll make a quick tennis podcast is a show where we cover a top ten-ish list every week.

Speaker:

it could be anything could be the top 10 highest grossing movies could be the top 10 deadliest serial killers could be the top 10 fastest animals, anything everything's on the table.

Speaker:

We usually like to keep our lists Quantitative and data-based, fact-based rather than opinion base.

Speaker:

Speaker:

we have over 160 something episodes now, new episodes every Wednesday.

Speaker:
