The Jerk Alerter

Ump, there it is

Mountable device

Imagine sitting at a bar and having a nice refreshing brew. And then comes in your boss from the office. He comes over and starts bullying you. Now do you really have to take it? Are you afraid of losing your job? Well, not anymore. Now there is a new app that can prevent such a situation. You can make a list of people who you don’t particularly care for. Then when they come into your territory it alerts you. 

 This App is fairly simple. You should have no complications in your construction. You touch a button on your screen and it flashes on and off and announces, “Jerk Alert, Jerk Alert!”. This in general announces to others in the vicinity that a jerk has entered the room or has said something unwanted.

Perhaps with some ingenuity it can be used in your vehicle where others can see, maybe on the dashboard like a button. And maybe alerting others in the vicinity utilizing blue-stuff that would alert other drivers with the same software.

Mine, I created using a Quick Shortcut Maker in cahoots with Touch Alarm Protector and Ringtone Maker. 

My friend was in the car repair business when he said he wished he had a dashboard button that said, “Gook Alert” and I said that wasn’t politically correct. And I said what about “Jerk Alert”.

The Jerk Alert is a simple button I believe will become a big hit with phone lovers. It might even advance to more apps that have their own exclamations, such as, “Oh Shit” or “Happy Birthday” or “You’re the Man”, etc.

This is a really simple app. Your youngest engineer should be able to design/build it. But, it has potential to expand from a simple app to a dashboard button to other exclamations as stated earlier. The most difficult part is probably the patent search, but, I have proof of my idea going back to 1987.

If you are a jerk, then be ready. We are not coming to get you. But, when you are around we will know. No more bullying.  Then, at the end of the day a person could enjoy a cold beer in peace. As long as there is not an app for “stalker alert”!
