    That’s actually where the term came from. Back in the days when dates were chaperoned and school classrooms segregated by sex, ordering a soda was one of the few times when a teen-age girl could approach a boy her age group, since soda jerks tended to be young. A lot of them took advantage of their situation by asking out girls they liked, and using inappropriate language. Guys who acted that way were described as acting like soda jerks, and later, it was shortened to acting like jerks.

    from your comments it seems any and every woman/man – no matter what is wrong…do you really hate everything and everyone?

    Sorry Edcole, the word jerk came from when the person behing the counter was pulling on (jerking) the handle on the soda water dispenser.

    Do you really feel the need to psychoanalyze total strangers over the internet?

    Carbonated water and chocolate syrup and a little ice cream I think. Been a while since I had one.

    I was talking about the term “Jerk” as an offensive person. THe original meaning of the word was to grab something and pull down. But the term for describing offensive guys as jerks DID come from the soda jerk. I’m sorry if the two of you have difficulties understanding English.

    Mix vanilla ice cream, Dr. Pepper, and some chocolate syrup and it tastes just like the old time chocolate sodas. Yum!
