What is the first name of the worst living human being that you personally know?
Also curious to know who reads the details.

Don, although one of my favorite people is also named Don. These two people could not be more different.

This is a hard question @josie because while names spring to mind, as I think about whether they are really the ‘worst living human being I personally know’ I find myself second guessing myself. Are they really evil? Are they really bad people or did they just do things that hurt me in some way? With distance between those events, while I still think they are complete asshats, I don’t know if I could label them the ‘worst living human being I know’.

If I have to name names though – Duncan, Robin, Alan, Jenny. People who stand out to me as self-centred and cruel people.

@Kardamom Suggest you call them Don 1 and Don 2.

Owen, guy used to be in my class but he got expelled. Months later he robbed my Auntie’s house. Knob took everything.
Edit: I also know a very nice person named Owen though.
Edit2: Shouldn’t this be in Social? :)

@josie Me and some of my friends refer to the first one as thatdouchebagmuthafukkalyingsakkashittheifchildmolesta and the other one as our friend Don, the cool musician : )

@Kardamom Even better.

If you agree to have dinner with me, I can tell you then :D

The worst living person that I personally know? That narrows it down. I can think of more than one, actually.

Jerry, Alena, David.

Byron. And a doctor whose first name I don’t know.

Blueroses's avatar

with apologies to any nice people who bear the name
Suzanne. Years after I was finally shed of the nasty, fungi-ridden, scum (minus the s) bucket who made my life misery, I still shudder when I hear that name.

As of this writing…
Vicki
My goofy sister-in-law!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

You know… I’m going to add to my previous answer and say that Jerry, by far, is the worst of those three. And I want you all to hate him with me.

Supacase's avatar

Amy or Mark. I can’t find a tie-breaker.

Supacase's avatar

@Blueroses So I’m the impression you don’t care much for Suzanne. ~

Kardamom's avatar

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could line up this group of awful people, in front of one of those Indian/Asian-style pit toilets that was being discussed on the other question about bad potty experiences whilst on vacation, and just shove them all into it. One by one. Plop, plop, plop, plop!

Bellatrix's avatar

I know a Susanna I am not impressed with too. In fact, @Blueroses, I know two!! Wow… yeah, let’s line them up.

Pandora's avatar

Wow, the worst, I know of such a person but I only met her once and can’t remember her name. She was an extremely vile person. I felt like washing everything she touched after she left my home. Her parents should of named her, Cyst Whore!
Second to her is Hail. But I think it was a last name.
I’m hard pressed to come up with any such names being I can usually tell when someone is not a nice person and will make every effort to not know them or even remember they exist.
Some names do seem to follow a pattern but for the most part, I think letters are the only thing in a name.

Tanya…a horrible person who really traumatized me. A pathological liar.

Adagio's avatar

I’m very happy to say no name immediately springs to mind…….

Sunny2's avatar

I’m with @Adagio. I tend to feel sorry for people like the ones you are speaking about. (Yes, ma’am. About whom you are speaking) I only have to put up with them sometimes. They have to live with their awful selves day after day for ever and ever, (Unless they get help with their miserableness.)

Nullo's avatar

Elizabeth. Which is a shame, since “Elizabeth” is such a pretty name.

Bellatrix's avatar

:-O @Nullo. Surely not! I am stunned that there would be a bad Elizabeth.

Blueroses's avatar

Ah @Nullo but it’s “Elizabeth”.

All of the Liz, Libby, Beth,and Bessie’s I’ve known have been spectacular.

Nullo's avatar

@Bellatrix Yep. A poison-tongued wretch who has swindled and squandered two whole estates that I am aware of, the second belonging to my late grandmother (did horrible things to her, too) – before she was even late! And then she almost immediately had a stroke that left her paralyzed and constitutionally unable to not say horrible things to people. I tend to think of it as divine retribution.

Bellatrix's avatar

:-( She does sound very nasty indeed. I think she should have her name changed though @Nullo.

Kardamom's avatar

@Sunny2 Unfortunately some of these people, including the person in my example, are sociopathic, so he lives quite happily with himself, and he’s one of those people that keep getting promoted and movin’ on up (RIP and no offense whatsoever to Sherman Hemsley) because no one can afford, monetarily or emotionally, to get this mother effer locked up, so he keeps being given letters of recomendations simply to get rid of him, but so far, he’s just kept moving up the ladder and he thinks the sun rises and sets in his own a**hole. He loves hurting people. I was actually brought into legal proceedings against this monster, but it didn’t help, he’s free to legally move about the country, reeking havoc on unsuspecting innocent people. He’s not a pedophile priest, but it’s sort of a parallel situation.

Nullo's avatar

@Bellatrix Hmm… Maybe she’ll get senile in the next few years…

Sunny2's avatar

@Kardamom I’m sorry you had to endure knowing this person. Makes me feel very pollyanna-ish. Evil does exist.

Kardamom's avatar

@Sunny2 I don’t think you’re being like Pollyanna, it’s just that until you’ve been unfortunate enough to have met someone like this, or been negatively effected by them, it sounds insane to most people to even think that someone could be so mean and terrible or that they could get away with their dirty deeds.

I’m shuddering just thinking about what he did

SpatzieLover's avatar

I despise him so much that I refuse to write his name here.
In place of a proper name I refer to him as lousy bastard.

Earthgirl's avatar

@SpatzieLover That’s funny. I know the feeling. I used to refer to a former boyfriend, a serial cheater, as “He Who Shall Remain Nameless”.

Kardamom's avatar

^^ Kind of like Voldemort : P

Earthgirl's avatar

@Kardamom Lol and I thought that up way before Harry Potter! Luckily for me, or unluckily, depending how you look at it, he was way more attractive than Voldemort…...

Earthgirl's avatar

@Kardamom I was just thinking as I walked home how ironic it is that he went by a name he chose from the bible not his given name. It was an unusual and beautiful name that I still love but I dare not speak it or it may exert it’s powerful Obeah magic on me again!
