Ever wish the world had a few less assholes?
Today's your chance to make that happen by taking the OLA pledge: Becoming the One Less Asshole you wish to see in the world.
So just for today, if someone cuts you off in traffic, in line, in talking-- carry on with composure and reasonable-headed-ness. Even if some jerk gives you every opportunity and justification for being a jerk back-- don't bite. Be the OLA.
Don't worry if you don't get the chance to put this challenge into practice today. You will, soon enough. Memorize the simple slogan: "OLA, baby" so you can pull it into consciousness (not outloud!) when the need arises.
