People that annoy me

People who say ‘we should do coffee’. No, no we shouldn’t. There’s a reason why we haven’t seen each other in years. If I wanted to go for coffee with you, I would have at any point in the past [x] amount of time in which we haven’t communicated.

Parents who exploit their children on the internet for cash. I’m not talking the mom’s or dad’s who post pictures of their kids just because. I’m talking about the parents who post pictures or videos of their children and go into very detailed descriptions of their physical or mental health issues or tell their child’s personal stories for things like Mr. Clean Advertisements (because yes, this does happen on Instagram all of the time).

People who are unwilling to do their job. If you’re being paid to do a job, please do said job. If you don’t like it, if you don’t want to be there, if you think you’re too good for the job, whatever the reason might be… you don’t need to make everyone else’s lives difficult because it

Guys that don’t call you when they say they’re going to. Don’t say you’re going to call if you’re not going to call. No woman, myself included, wants to be sitting around waiting for a man to call.

People who make everything about them. When you’re telling a story or reading or a story or simply minding your own damn business and that person always has to speak up about something that happened to them, or someone they knew, or something they did… yeah those people.

Drivers that hold up all the traffic in a parking lot so that they can wait 20 minutes for a spot close to the door. Heaven forbid they’re forced to park two rows away and walk an extra 200 feet to get into the store.

People who take all but the last two sips worth of the coffee, or the orange juice, or the milk, so they don’t have to replace it. If you drink the end of the coffee, make another pot. If you drink the end of the juice, get more juice.

People don’t care abut something until it happens to them. It shouldn’t have to happen to you for it to matter to you. Period.

Nosy neighbours that need to mind their own business. Nuf Said.

Litterers.

People that pretend to care. At least when people don’t fucking care and are honest about it, they have the guts to be honest about it. Someone pretending to care is such a waste. A waste of effort, a waste of thought, a waste of emotion. Just a waste.

  1. what things annoy me is the expection of the audience or people to keep making stuff and always give them something to see…

  2. I can tell you that when you reach my age, everything in this world annoys you. Thanks for pointing out this crap early on. I live in Texas, so this is almost sacrilegious, but boys that drive pick-up trucks and ride your ass on the highway..well, it’s a good thing I don’t carry.

  3. “Guys that don’t call you when they say they’re going to.”

    I also get impatient with people who don’t do what they say they’re going to do. I always do what I say I’m going to do, which rarely gets accepted at face value, as if there’s an expectation for me not to do what I say I’m going to do?? 😆

    “People who take all but the last two sips worth of the coffee, or the orange juice, or the milk, so they don’t have to replace it.”

    Is that really a motivation? Finishing a drink doesn’t imply you immediately need more! I hate sipping drinks, I either have a full cup or an empty cup.

    “People that pretend to care.”

    These are known as ‘People people’, lol.

    1. I think you misunderstood the coffee/juice comment.
      It’s like… when I had roommates, my one roommate would also take the coffee pot and pour their cup with all but two sips worth of coffee. They’d leave the two sips worth of coffee in the pot so they didn’t have to make a new pot of coffee and that the next roommate who showed up would have to make the coffee.

  4. Yup. They all annoy me too. And people who talk over what you are trying to say, Let me finish what I am saying and perhaps your question will be answered! Plus it’s damn rude.

  5. “People who make everything about them.” I was friends with a girl in college who did this all the time. At first, I didn’t see it. But then someone pointed it out to me. A group of us would be in a conversation and she would interrupt and say something like, “Okay, back to what I was saying about me…” Once I realized she was doing that all the time, the glass shattered and I just couldn’t be friends with her anymore.

    “People that pretend to care.” I’m sorry to say this is pretty much me on the job. Not all the time… And I feel like I should preface it with I don’t 100% not care about my clients. It’s just that… so many of them don’t give a damn about themselves. At least not enough to actually do something to affect change or growth in their lives. It’s hard to care about someone’s difficult situation when they can’t seem to care about it themselves.

    1. It’s amazing how much we’re able to look past for so long and then, when we realize it, like in the case of your friend from college, you can’t not see it.

  6. Guys…still call? Sometimes. I’ll get a number and pass. I’ll just, talk myself out of the precursor of love. I won’t think bad of them and maybe, wouldn’t it be worse if I did call to say I wasn’t interested? Like, if I told them I’d avoid having fun with you to stare at my wall. My wall wins. It’s a nice wall.
