(((WARNING—IT’S A RANT!!!…with no real purpose…)))
DO YOU EVER JUST GET ANNOYED!? Do you get to the point that you want to scream or even punch someone when this happens? I’m not going to admit anything about that today. I’m just rambling, really. This is what I do most all the time, I know. I have no problem with it really and if it annoys you, well, don’t read any further. SERIOUSLY. Stop.
If you have decided to read on, here goes…
There are a few things in this life that bothers me. Actually, if someone made me sit down and make a list, I’m sure the list might get longer, but no one is doing that so I will stick to the short list.
#1 INCONSIDERATES (in·con·sid·er·ate: adj. 1. Thoughtless of others; displaying a lack of consideration. 2. Not well considered or carefully thought out; ill-advised.) I won’t call names or point fingers, but in general, I will refer to those I have observed and perhaps studied at well length at times with no real intent to do so in the first place. When you find yourself pinned up, stuck to or just haphazardly placed with such people, it’s almost torture. A person who expects you to do things for them with no thought of the time it takes for you to do such things for them. An individual who wakes up and just calls you no matter HOW EARLY in the morning it is on YOUR DAY OFF is a typical inconsiderate. Those who assume you have absolutely nothing else to do at all ever besides take care of their needs, but when you need something, it seems to them a chore. A THANK YOU would be nice every once in a while; although, I know we are supposed to do things for others without expecting anything in return. I know this. *sigh* I’m sure you have seen an inconsiderate before. You have been tied to one. You may even live with one. (Lord help you!)
#2 HABITUAL NOISE MAKERS (makes the same noises over and over and doesn’t even realize it’s happening) Again, no fingers pointing, no names typed. These are the SIGH-ERS, the coughers (not the ones who are really sick!), the grunters, yawners, gigglers, etc. You know them. You have been with someone who laughs at everything you say when really, everything you say is NOT funny. You say, “Wow, I had a real bad hang nail this morning. It hurt so bad!” The HNM starts giggling. Perhaps they don’t realize that giggling is not what they should be doing, but they do it because that is all they know to do. It’s a habit. It’s a mechanism. It’s a cover even! They don’t know how to communicate. I know it’s not good that I find this annoying, but I do. I should help them find a twelve step program or something. Ug!
#3 MESSY OBLIVIOUSNESSES (those totally oblivious to the OBVIOUS mess) There is a pinkish colored, slightly sticky round spot on the carpet the size of a truck tire —they do nothing. They might of even made the spot with the pink-lemonade they so love to drink, but they don’t get the wet rag or even gasp when it occurs. There is a trail of clothes that seem dirty since they are on the floor that spans from the bathroom to the hamper, but not one piece is placed INSIDE the hamper. There is a stack of mail on the counter that has accumulated over a 3 or 4 week stint, yet it doesn’t budge, because no one has the will, strength or most of all COURAGE to take a venture through it. Geeez! Even though this is #3 and seems the lesser of the three, I feel as if I could go on forever about this one. All three, though, to me, are equally annoying. Just saying.
Ok, so that is the short list. There are several behaviors and personalities that would fit under one of these and in a lot of instances, some fit under more than one–even under all three!
So, do you EVER just get annoyed! How ANNOYING!!!
