How To Be A Jerk When You Travel w/ Amanda Cerny (Lesson 5)

When spreading a deadly virus is no longer a thing, you’ll need to get back to basics to be a jerk when you travel.

How To Be A Jerk When You Travel (Lesson 5)

Don’t travel just to run away from all your problems, BE the problem! (Starring Amanda Cerny)

Posted by Funny Or Die on Tuesday, December 15, 2020

Traveling sucks because you are forced to deal (and corporate) with other people.

HOWEVER, today’s lesson from the publically-canceled-16-times Brie Summers ISN’T about how to be a good co-traveler (because where’s the fun in that!?), it’s about how to be the worst commuter because you thrive off other people’s misery.


Hotels are a jerk’s paradise. You pay for one small room in a giant building full of many people, and you’re entitled to act like it’s your own personal mansion. Be sure to trash your room and be as loud as possible. Remember: since you paid for the space, you’re entitled to do whatever you want.


Make your daily commute more fun for you (and more miserable for everyone else!) by being on your phone while you drive. Did the light just turn green? Don’t accelerate - first finish your text and then slowly continue your drive. Need to switch lanes? Don’t bother with a turn signal - other drivers will figure out what to do when they see you unexpectedly swerve into their lane!


Now, for the most fun place on Earth to be a jerk, 35,000 feet above it. If hotels are a jerk’s paradise, airplanes are a jerk’s jungle gym. It’s a great place for us to play around, try stuff out, and make other kids cry. If you like to vape - don’t let your airline’s prohibitory policy stop you from enjoying your mango vape! Create a secret fort under your sweatshirt, so everyone knows what you’re doing, but no one can legally prove it. Be sure to drink a lot before getting on the plane. Water’s the easiest way to guarantee you’ll have to constantly climb over the person next to you.

When it comes to choosing your liquids on a flight, alcohol fun, but caffeine makes you more chatty, so be sure to drink BOTH so you can force your neighbor into a one-sided conversation the entire flight. Weeeee!
