being nastyyyy

Why should people be nice to each other? Should we be? What's the point in trying to be a better person and all that, why not just let the evil take control and be a bastard / bitch to everyone? What's the worst that could happen? Can anyone give me one good, solid reason to try to improve myself?

Because it doesn't feel good to be a miserable asshole all the time.

Just smile, it's easier. (And surprisingly, it burns more calories than frowning.)

You have to constantly work at being nice, being an asshole is just much easier.

Try this reason on for size.

You should try to be nice because there is always someone out there capable of being much more rude evil and destructive than you.

That person is roaming around just looking for an excuse to be rude evil and destructive.

Don't give that person the excuse they're looking for.

I will confess when I was in college I was that person. I literally kept a mental rolodex of all the harsh things to say to people if they ever pissed me off. But since I was one of the "kick the keg party guys" on campus, few people gave me the opportunity to really let them have it.

I had a funny delivery but scorching material and my attacks usually ended with a new nickname that tended to stick around for the rest of the semester.

If you're generally pleasant (not a "pathetic pushover"), its hard to give the rude ones an excuse to torch you.

Good behavior as a defense mechanism.

Besides bad news travels fast and its hard to revert to the "good guy" once you've pissed enough people off.

I think most people "like to be liked".

Steam- just what i was about to say. if you are surrounded by tossers, it can be hard to be nice and smile.

Feeling better... maybe long term you feel better if you are nice, but being a bitch surely can feel good short term?

DeuceDiva- you're right, obviously. I was just hoping for someone had some blinding insights for me.

Ok, that IS a good reason, but what if people are crap to you, and you have been nice (or neutral) to them and they keep being bastards?

Where is the value in being liked by people you don't like?????

Depends. Are they in a position of power over you? If so, cultivate their good favor, get promoted ahead of them, then treat them like shit.

If they're equals or inferiors, tell them to take a hike.

Its like a coin. We need both the sides to work properly. I guess we just struggle between nice and bastard all the time.

Although, if someone is a bastard to you all the time, why bother? Tell them to fuck off.
