    Michael Swan, in his "Practical English Usage," says "With you, will is often used to make requests or to give orders."
    According to the "Oxford American Dictionary," jerk is slang for a stupid or insignificant person. I suggest that you use "OneLook Dictionary Search," an excellent resource for word definitions.

    Re: question

    By the way, please try to give a more helpful title to your question; 'Question' doesn't tell us anything. 'Meaning of jerk' would have been more useful.
