What do you think are some of the most annoying things some people do?


Could it be someone who is a very discourteous and even an unsafe driver?

Someone who leaves a very small tip or none at all to a hard-working server, when the tip was not included in the price of the meal?

Someone that swears or is a bigot and you are subjected to having to hear it before you can leave or ask that person to stop that talk or to try to educate that person (that last option is hard to do in practice because of that person often having a lack interest in hearing another’s viewpoint)?

Remember, even if you find something annoying, perhaps something you do is annoying to others!   :)

Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Taking sweets with noisy plastic wrappers into the movies.

Rustling around forever trying to get those last hard bits of popcorn at the movies.

Repeatedly talking during the main feature at the movies.

In fact, anything that distracts me from what I have paid to see at the cinema, is the most annoying thing ever.

Visiting the movies and treating myself in that way is one of the things I really look forward to, but don't do as often as I would like. I don't get people who feel compelled to make annoying noises when they should be getting transported to another world on the big screen.

Honestly people who are rude inconsiderate and act stupid even though they're not oh and people who like to borrow stuff without asking

As far as what I do to others that would annoy them I would have to say and I'm not trying to be conceited because I'm not conceited at all really but I'm intelligent I know I'm intelligent and I probably used too much of that intelligence in conversations and it comes off rude I think or perhaps stuck-up

If you can't accept yourself,  how can you expect others to accept you?

Yes, rude and arrogant people can be annoying.

Yes, it would be much nicer if people would make less noise in the movie theatre.

I used to love going to see movies but now if it's a cinema that's gonna be full of kids on phones in front of me and people dying of consumption, forget it. The plus side of seeing obscure films, being the only one(s) in there.

I have bad luck in cinemas. I always seem to end up between a candy-eating kid behind that wants to stick their feet on the back of the chair and a middle-aged guy in front narrating the movie to his elderly mother.

Had someone say that he found it very annoying that while he was texting and driving, that some driver would quickly swerve and cut right in front of him.

I did not have any sympathy for him as he should have not be doing both texting and driving at the same time.

And don't you just love the people that don't have to wait at red lights or that don't move over when you're trying to merge onto the expressway

When some one demands some thing and snaps their fingers.
It's so infuriating!
Unfortunately I get it a lot in the job I do, I can't say too much for confidentiality reasons.
How ever, when they know better it's just really annoying lol.

When anyone treats transpeople bad, or actually, anyone poorly.

Bugs me when people wander about so engrossed in shopping or whatever they have zero situational awareness and usually walk right into other people.

People on 'planes who put their seats back and tip up the trays of the passengers behind them, during mealtimes.  A large percentage of passengers do it as soon as they have finished eating themselves.  They should have their passports revoked.   (I'm feeling benevolent or I would say "Bring back the cat.")

Personally, I think that it is rude to put one's seat back at any time other than when the cabin lights are dimmed, unless one has asked permission from the passenger behind.

There is a certain type of obnoxious person out there that keeps showing rudeness and disrespect in conversation. For them its a constant game of one-upmanship and put down for the next guy.

 The other part of this is they go out of their way to get to get an annoyed response & when they do they get incredulous.

 When they get called out or pulled up they always insist
-"  I was just having a laugh "

 or "Im not obnoxious"
 
 Unfortunately for these people their social lives suffer as a result. They always continue to rub people up the wrong way and are oblivious to their annoying habits.

Unkind, rude, and boastful people can be annoying.

We had a boss like that last year. I always handled the situation very professionally, the emotion suppression techniques I developed over the years to hide my true self came in very handy. But this guy was so annoying, he pushed my buttons constantly with his behavior, even my co-workers noticed that I was not as calm as I usually am and they wondered how I did not hit him in the head with something. They didn't know how close I came to this :D
In the end I got recognized for handling the guy the way I did and he got fired.

Ooooo girl, I would have blown up probably.  >:-) Might even have given him a 9 pound sledge between the eyes.

I need to learn how to handle unruly people better.

You know I think the emotion techniques that I have developed are working for me but not advisable for others and the techniques that I use are I let people have it I'll tell him what I think where they can go have a can get there and offer to escort them it's funny because I was talking to my mother and telling her about this and she said that this is normal for my family because all the women in our family are bitches that actually made me feel good that my mother knows that I'm a woman and acknowledged it

I don't always practice what I preach but action has to be taken against that kind of annoying person.  They are not just hurting feelings but damaging other people's careers to make themselves look good.  If they humiliate you in your presence, they are probably doing something worse behind your back.  If all attempts at reasonable communication fail, one can as a last resort join in the game and recognise and counter  aggressive or passive-aggressive behaviour.   If absolutely necessary, the passive-aggressors own techniques can be used against them, as in Pope's critique of the critic:

"Damn with faint praise,
Assent with a civil leer
And, without sneering,
Teach the others to sneer."
