You know what I hate?
That “nice guy” no longer means, well, a guy who is nice to you.
@aldersprig wtf does it mean then 😶
@ignitionigel generally the guy saying “Girls don’t like nice guys, they like assholes.”
@aldersprig @ignitionigel *pops up out of nowhere* The term "nice guy" has become a common-place idiom meaning, essentially, "a guy who thinks that he is entitled to better treatment/more attention because he doesn't act like an asshole in public".
@aldersprig I prefer to think of it as an unhelpful homonym.
@Wsteria That is an interesting way of thinking of it!
@aldersprig Why Lyn my dear why don't you do as I do and say "he's a decent sort of chap altogether" instead.
