    So my brother and I went to a 7:30 minyan this morning. We came at about 7:50, right after borchu. When we came there were exactly 10 people, plus us 2.

    So after we finished mussaf shmone esrei (it was a nusach sfard minyan, so we already did hoshanos), we were going to wait for kedusha and leave. But then we noticed another guy folding his tallis, and another guy fiddling with his stuff. So we left right away.

    Anyway, this guy who was fiddling with his stuff asks if there will be a minyan without us. So my bro says, “probably, there was a minyan before we came.”

    So the guy chases us out and says, “you know, you’re a real jerk.”

    Now, I happen to be a jerk, but how did he know?

    Probably cuz jerks tend to leave before kedusha.

    be dan lkaf zchus. maybe the guy is married and has to go to some important appointment with his wife or kid. after you get married then you realize how many times crazy things happen that maybe you have to leave early. so maybe you put him in a bad spot and from his perspective you were being a jerk.

    Popa, considering the fact that you admitted that you are a jerk, maybe he knew you from before

    Funny Bar Shattya should mention it, since my brother’s daughter actually did have a doctor’s appointment to get to.

    But my SIL was taking her.

    Only a jerk leaves before the final amen of the last kaddish. No, I don’t have a source for this statement, but perhaps the guy who called you a jerk does.

    I gave the problem some serious thought and came up with a solution. First, I had my phone dial Jerk #1. A man answered

    After reading this story I noticed a few problems with it. First of all, our Josephf would never call a woman. Second, he would never go to Jury Duty. So perhaps this story happened to a different Joseph.

    Popa, why would you daven at a 7:30 minyan and arrive at 7:50 when you could daven at an 8:00 minyan and arrive on time?

    Probably he was also a jerk, and as the saying goes, it takes one to know one.

    Now if you’ll just give your phone number to YW Moderator…

    Name calling is not a very Jewish way of doing things, or are we becoming to goyish ?

    i agree welldressed007 its a degradation in the extreme i think that the whole frum community is to intertwined with the goyim we are getting influenced through speech, the way we act and dress have you seen some people at davening not wearing hats and jackets

    Today we went to the same minyan, and stayed until the same time, but there were too many people for us to be jerks.

    Agav, I realized that you are allowed to eat outside the sukkah during davening, because it isn’t ???? ????? to eat in the sukkah during davening because you daven in shul.

    #1152458

    But where you regularly eat during davening (or long davenings), then maybe it is ???? ????? .

    You probably blocked my driveway to get to shul. Jerks.

    I don’t mean anyone specifically in this thread, and I don’t know if it qualifies as being a Jerk specifically, but I see it all the time and it bothers me. People come consistenly late to shul, spend precious few minutes actually davening, and then rush out before it is anywhere near over.

    There is someone at my minyan that comes at the same time every day, 7:05 to a 6:45 AM shachris, and he is gone by 7:20. It probably takes him the whole 15 minutes only because he is learning daf yomi while he is davening.

    Meanwhile I come early and have to struggle to have enough time to say everything (with at least minimal Kavanah) along with the minyan. I usually stay long after the minyan ends sat 7:30. And yes, I work for a living and have a family.

    I get the most upset when I see people flaunting the Kovod of the tzibbur and minyan publically. Just this past Shemini Atzeres, our minyan started davening (Brochos) at 8:00. Someone walked in the shul at 8:55 carrying a coffee in one hand and his tallis under his arm. Even though we were already past Borchu, He proceeded to talk to people right in middle of the shul. At 9:25, as we were saying Hallel, he was still standing there wearing his Streimel, not yet even putting on the tallis. He showed no interest in what was going on around him.

    Interestingly, this same person, when he davens by the Amud, takes three times longer than any normal person can stand, streching out every word unnecessarily and singing ling songs between each sentence. Maybe he has a different sense of time.
