Boludo yeah, jerk no.

Is it the same to tell someone stupid as you jerk? What is the difference between those two terms? Are they synonymous? What do you think?

How we talk

It looks the same, but it's not. It's one thing to tell you he's a jerk, another very It 'sdifferent to be called a duper. A fool is acceptable, he's even sympathetic, affectionate. “Oh, you're a boludoooo,” they can tell us without being offended. Even ourselves can say, “What a boldface I am!” When we're wrong, we forget something or screw up. Boludo does.

But with the ball-headed things They change. No one says with love to a friend: “You little ball, you don't know what happened to me. yesterday.” Mmm, no. It's not the same thing. “You're a duper” sounds loud, sounds like challenge, provocation. If we play the ball, it's because we know that the other He's right.

Pelotudo is, perhaps, the most commonly used word to define the one who broke your friend's heart (especially if your friend is a repeat offender). Skinny's a ballboy, there's no other. He loses it, for a duper. If it's the woman who misbehaves, the terms change, but that's already the subject for a separate note.

So, you fool, you fool, you don't. Never. They seem synonymous, but they're not. The boludo is more versatile, it is applies to different contexts, is used with different shades, is more naturalized. The sucker is still a scumbag, an insult, a bad guy. word. An assault. Let's be careful, it's not gonna be a thing that we get confused. and take a jerk just for a jerk. Because it's not the same. No, it's not.
