Why Are People So Annoying?

Apr 9 2007

I don’t normally do this, but I’m having one of those days. I will admit that I’m easily annoyed, but there are just some things I don’t understand:

Phone Eaters: Why do people think it’s OK to eat while on the phone? Even when you think you’re chewing quietly, those disgusting smack slurp chomp noises are just plain rude. If you’re that hungry that you can’t wait, please hang up and call back later.

Ice Chewers: Oh my god, please make them stop! They have a whole forum dedicated to the joys of ice chewing, and they even share recipes for the best tasting ice. I think it’s time that you folks recognize that you have a problem. A very loud obnoxious problem. I just don’t understand how ice chewers don’t realize how RUDE and annoying their habit is to everyone around them.

Gum Chewers: I myself like to chew gum. I’m not suggesting that we outlaw gum. But if you snap, pop, or chew like a cow with your mouth open, you should be shot. For those of you who, like my sister and mother, say that it’s just not as satisfying to chew politely … I have no words.

Whistlers: Ok, maybe this one’s my own personal issue. But I want to kill all whistlers. Don’t they know it’s ear piercing and annoying? Here’s a fellow blogger’s take on it. I couldn’t have said it better myself:

I hate whistlers. I think they are all not so secretly insecure attention seekers, who demand affection and interested notice from those around them in the most unsubtle and nerve riding way known to man. [from Blah Blah Blah]

Finger Snappers: I think of finger snappers as would-be whistlers who just don’t know how to whistle. I just can’t get over how on point Chrysalis from Blah Blah Blah was about these attention seeking types. It’s TOTALLY true and can be applied to every single whistler and finger snapper I know.

I could go on…office nail clippers, open mouth eaters, lip smackers, loud typists, you all make me want to gouge out my eyes.

Whew. Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, I feel better.

    How about guys who clip their nails in their work cubicles while on the phone! LOLYou may think I’m kidding, but I really did work for a guy who did that. And he was a salesman. He also liked to eat cheetos while “closing a deal” with clients on the phone. How he managed to sell a single thing, I have no idea.

    Actually, if you’re walking and breathing with your mouth open, you’re a member of the annoying club, too.
