What screams “that person that everyone hates?”
By - Pornflakes122
You ever make a friend and slowly all the other people you know drop off out of your life? You've just made friends with "that person everyone hates".
“Drama free!! Fuck the haters! I’m so real everyone else just can’t handle it, people are just soooo fake.”
Usually embroiled in drama nonstop and their personality is about as deep as an inflatable toddler pool.
Usually if your a “real” genuine person you don’t need to go around screaming it and declaring it either
Pple who talk shit about others behind their backs and act all friendly towards them when they are around.
I knew a girl who talked shit about everyone in a group. It’s shitty because I knew she talked shit about me too but I was too shy to say anything against her. Some people never realized she did it though and still think she’s the best person ever
Calls all mandatory meetings at 4:30 on Fridays.
My last manager arranged meetings to end at 3:30 on Fridays so we could all leave early, he was fucking excellent.
I see that we are coworkers. She will also push those meetings last minute to 5:30 because she's on client calls and regularly schedules shit at noon because "that's when everyone is available, you can just have lunch later"
No, we can't... The one hour we're all available is lunch is because we're busy the other working hours of the day. The lack of respect for the team's time is wild.
When we suggested maybe noon and 5:30 weren't great times for all hands meetings that should have been an email, she started scheduling them for 7:30am to respect our time. So considerate.
“You’re cute for a…”
That’s a low bar.
I was hanging out with the cute co-worker in the dining room between service. I guess the sunlight was shining on me, and she says, "Y'know Bokb, I really love how you have such bright blue eyes and brown hair!"
I simply nodded and smiled really big, and she continues:
"I bet you were really handsome when you were younger."
Yeah, big oof.
My god. My brother at 20 to a 40+ woman: "You must have been good looking when you were younger"
She smiled then cried.
Some people just seem to have a problem with *everyone*
“He’s a piece of shit”
“She’s a bitch”
9 times out of 10 they are completely ignorant to the fact that the only common denominator is *them*
“If you run into an asshole, well you ran into an asshole. If everyone you run into is an asshole, odds are you are the asshole.”
Yea and that leads to awkward conversation
"Uugh don't you think this guy/girl is so dumb and lazy too."
"uhm, no not really.."
If a person makes a big deal out of doing something that they should be doing anyway EG: "I take care of my kids", "I always tell the truth", "I'm always on time for work", "I shower regularly" etc etc that person is best avoided. They're usually anything but what they claim to be.
You're not SUPPOSED to go to jail! Ya low-expectation-havin motherfuckaaa!
I have a co-worker that will cut your story off mid sentence to one up you with their own story that's barely even related to the topic at hand. They are so self involved (and long winded) that people will see him in the break room, and decide to take the elevator to one of the other break rooms on another floor. Lmao...
Edit: To clarify; Most of his stories are about how awesome New Jersey/New York is and how stupid Washington Staters are. After a while of being made fun of by him, I just wanna scream 'If you love Jersey so much, then MOVE BACK TO JERSEY!'
I recommend using a technique I learned years ago when you run into someone like that. When they do it to me, I wait for a little bit for them to pick up steam with their story, and then loudly and obviously interrupt them beginning with "That's nothing!" followed by continuing with my previous story.
They may not get it the first time, but after the third or fourth time you do that to them, they'll generally stop the behavior altogether.
I've had success interrupting the interrupter with, "Go ahead, I'll finish my story when you're done."
I'm sorry the middle of my sentence interrupted the start of yours.
Aye I'm not gonna lie, I tried using this and the dude got SUPER heated, like he was ready to throw hands.
Sounds like a stable dude
He's not. Not in the slightest. Buddy lost the cheese off his cracker a while ago
Well hello new favorite insult
I'm way less passive haha, usually a "well fuck what I was saying, right?"
FUCK I wish I could say this to my co-worker and not get fired for it.
We would intentionally play this game at parties in college. As a group of friends if someone did this to one of our friends, we all began cueing up to interrupt with a more extravagant story.
Friend 1 talking to a girl: Yeah I've actually starting going to the climbing gym on campus, it is really fun. They have -..
Rando interrupts: Oh man you really should climb outside, I do real climbing outside all the time...
Friend 2: You climb outside? Me too, I just climbed the longest route in north America.
Friend 3: pfff who hasn't, last summer I climbed Denali the tallest mountain in the world.
Friend 4: I've climbed Everest
Friend 5: I summited Olympus Mons on Mars
The goal was to see how far you could go until you got someone to crack. The Oylmlus Mons on Mars is an actual example that definitely made me bust out laughing at the time.
I just ugly laughed imagining myself shouting out “That’s nothing!” in the same tone as “But wait - there’s more!” 😂😂😂
Yes! You understand perfectly.
The more over the top, the better!
I once did night shift with a one-upper like that. Just the two of us at a call center. He was the shift supervisor, and I was the only employee, and it was usually dead for most of our shift. So he had a LOT of time to one-up me.
Everything I ever did, he did one better. Everything I ever ate, he knew hot to eat it wayyy more awesomely because *his* dad uses a *smoker* to bbq, and [long winded story all day] it's just much better.
We also used to play online Scrabble against each other (it was just the two of us for almost 7 hours and no one was calling) and he would always come up with absolutely brilliant words. He would tell me what they meant with such pride. He was very smart and proud for a 20-something call centre night shift supervisor. Well, it was winter so the windows were condensing, but one day it was mild out, and the windows were clear, and in the reflection I could see him looking up words on a Scrabble cheat website.
Edit: Josh from 20 years ago - if you’re wondering, yes, it’s you.
>I once did night shift with a one-upper like that.
That's nothing. I once worked with two-uppers. LOL
I have a coworker who cuts people of saying "I know I know I know" when she wants us to stop talking. If she wasn't interested she could at least say "sorry gotta do this right now" and walk off but no this is more infuriating. I did do a silent cheer when her sister went off at her screaming "you know nothing" though.
People who just keep talking about themselves.
They talk and talk and talk, they’ll ask you a question and while you’re mid- answer they will cut you off and start talking about themselves
Man, I hate that I do this sometimes. I think it’s because I try to relate to someone’s experience to show that I can empathize with what they’re going through but it totally just comes off as me being self centered. I’m workin on it though!
Edit: y’all, I realized the irony of my comment while I typed it, but figured that since it was a comment and not an inescapable conversation, it’d be fine. A lotta folks seem genuinely annoyed at this comment, so, uh, sorry. I never said it was a good thing, and tried to make it quite clear that it’s a thing I’m ashamed of and want to fix. I just wanted to show the other side of the coin. But yeah. Ultimately the same reasoning as my original comment.
This is also a neurodivergent thing, if anyone was curious!! A lot of replies were talking about it. a lot of people with ADHD/autism/neurodivergent disorders do this.
My best friend and I both do this and are both aware we do, so when we can’t think of anything else to say, we’ll literally type like “NOT TRYING TO MAKE IT ABOUT ME JUST TRYING TO EMPATHIZE!!!!!” before our response
So there's a guy in my class that everyone hates, which I feel bad about now. The thing with him is that when you meet him, within the first or second question he'll say something negative about you. It could be he's trying to be sarcastic but to play it safe keep to positive things on the first few sentences back and forth.
I'm all for ripping on friends, and it's fun. But you dont do it when you first meet someone.
Not everyone has that kind of humor and you gotta feel it out first. if you're the kind who has to be an asshole because its who you are and cant tone it down around people who dont like it then, well, fuck you.
He could be trying to neg you in a social way. A lot of those pick-up artist sort of things also advertise themselves as a way to get friends too.
Or it could just be he thinks that's how you socialise or even he just doesn't want to be the bottom of the pecking order.
If you want to help him point it out don't make a big thing of it just say "Huh that's a bit rude" the next time he says it.
I think a lot of people do this kind of thing just because nobody has ever pointed it out to them. I find half the time if you point it out they generally stop.
Yup. We've all had an encounter with that guy who meets the friend group and goes too hard on the banter before earning the right
The person who turns everything into a heated argument. Like my brother, who has no idea how to formulate an argument and just ends up insulting the other person. It's annoying as hell and I'm surprised he has friends.
This is my uncle. Everytime you disagree with him it's eye rolls, condescending tone of voice, explanation about how you haven't "lived enough". It's not much of a defense of his position and more just insults.
Edit: typing issues
> how you haven't "lived enough"
People confuse experience with expertise way too often.
My sister is slowly turning into this. Annoying AF
Yelling at a checkout clerk at Walmart.
I mean like seriously what could they have done to you to make you that upset. Maybe you need some anger management training.
Edit: This happened at the self check out lane so I don't know what the Walmart check out clerk could have even done. I was in the next lane and my back was to this woman so I didn't see what happened. But this women kept yelling at the clerk "I want to talk to your manager right now !!!" Eventually they both walked up to the service desk together to get a manager. I felt sorry for the clerk ( and the manager !)
I dated a girl back in the day that absolutely lost it on a Taco Bell worker because of some sour cream. I couldn’t believe how something so insignificant could lead to her being so rude to someone who was making absolute shit food at 2 am for next to nothing. I let her know how I felt about it and we basically stopped talking all together that night.
They tell literally everyone how strong they are and that if they wanted to, they could beat your ass. It annoys the piss outta me and I can’t stand when people do it.
Edit: thank you for the upvotes :)
I know a guy like that. Radiates insecurity about his masculinity. Any times he sees a person park slightly too close to his car, he starts going off about hypotheticals where if they scratched his paint, he'd slash their tires or he'd pull out his collapsible baton from his trunk and beat them up.
He generally lies about anything and wants everyone to know that he is the strongest person in the room. He once told us that he did 100 lb arm curls with his shoulder dislocated. And how he has to constantly fight his sister every time he goes home because she is always trying to stab him, and that's how he learned hot to knife fight.
Of course he also get really angry any time you even hint that he is exaggerating. He no kidding once punched himself in the face 5 times and spent the rest of the day pouting when someone told him that they didn't believe his stories.
Needless to say, no one enjoys talking to him.
Loudest man in the room is a bitch.
I bet I'd win in a fight against you
A person who constantly has to make every thing about them. They will always re-direct with an answer about them. Wasting time in meetings so they can tell you about their B.S. that no one cares about or announcing how awesome they are. Yuck.
Someone who constantly needs to say “fuck the haters.” In my experience, that’s the person who (whom?) everyone despises.
And it’s always seems that it’s those people who are the ones who are doing the most hating also.
Overly competitive for no reason, even on co-op games.
If you win they get butthurt, if they win they throw it in your face.
Makes jokes at other people expense. Also can’t ever take a joke back.
Never grew out of the middle school days of bulling (wet willies, bean dips, wedgies, etc).
Yells in arguments of any sort in order to “win” the argument or not letting the other person talk.
Pretends like they have never done anything wrong, even if they just did 10 mins beforehand.
Finds the most low self esteem person in a group and puts them down to make themselves feel better about themselves.
Will literally say something along the lines of:
“Yeah I know I’m an asshole, you can ask any of my friends.”
Edit: a bean dip is when you scoop/flick up someone’s underboob and yell “bean dip!”
The first two, my god. I'd sometimes go to play a few casual matches with friends and these mfs would be SEETHING over losing against... Well, anyone. Just accept it and move on we can at least chat and laugh together if you aren't sour.
The kicker was that *I would carry most often*. It devolved into a toxic shitfest for me where I would try to carry harder and harder without complaining because I just wanted my friends to be happy and have fun with them. Wasn't fun at all.
Then it even got to the point where one decided he would have a tantrum mid game and not continue playing when I'd been giving it my all again... Didn't keep playing the game long after that.
People who blast their obnoxious music out loud on public transport
my younger brother does this but in the house late at night, even when my parents or me tell him to stop he continues anyway, so yeah i would definitely agree this trait is the trait of someone everyone would hate
Time to change the wifi password
On a couple of occasions I’ve gone into my router’s QoS settings from my laptop and capped the download speed of my sister’s Amazon Echo to 0. I’m the only one in the family who knows this is even possible so no one suspects it, and the rest of us can get some sleep.
Sounds like your parents you should actually do something about it tbh. If I even thought about doing that my parents would take away any speakers or other noise-makers.
Or hiking, no one wants to hear the Katy Perry club remix while trying to enjoy nature
If their entire personality is based off of one factor
"Hey guys I smoke weed."
"We get it, Jerry. Can we talk about something else?"
"... Did you know you can make rope and paper from hemp?"
"I used to smoke about four feet of rope a day."
\-Thomas Jefferson's Head
The students who try and argue with me about any and every little thing because their entire personality is built off of wanting to be “smarter than the professor”...
Most students hate that person too. It's like c'mon we can get out early if you shut up.
People who base their entire personality around being “edgy” and “brutally honest” when really, they’re just assholes.
Oh you mean people who shit on you and act like saints.
And they expect you to be thankful with them for shitting on you
"no need to get angry I'm just telling you how it is"
They just generally identify as a «victim». Every encounter in their life victimizes them in some way, and they fall out with new people all the time.
Had a boyfriend for years who's ex wife was constantly making "new best friends" with everyone. I finally met her, she seemed nice enough. Next thing you know she's inviting me over, wants me to do all kinds of stuff with her.
My bfs mom called me and said don't trust her. His brother said don't trust her.
My stupid self trusted her.
Our "friendship" posted about two weeks before she called CPS on my kid for mooning her kid. They were both 7.
She said "What about the trauma my child and I suffered because of you and your child?"
And that's why I think you should be able to go to court and lobby to whip another's adults ass.
I was not expecting that much escalation.
Sounds like someone who's parent's let them get away with everything, and once they were gone they replaced parents with laws.
This is exactly what my brother’s ex is like. She is one of the most evil people I have ever known....
She was ultimately the root cause of me ending our relationship. It hurts my heart that we can't see their son (he was a part of our family for 8 years) but we're better off not being involved with them at all.
We laugh about the rotten things these people do but she really caused me allot of heartache and trouble.
One of my college roommates was like this. Took a couple of years to really see it. Even if you’re a “friend”, if you hang around these people long enough, you’ll eventually become the enemy when they run out of other people to blame for their misery. She picked off the friend group one person per semester. The sad part was that you could tell she was a victim when it came to her family constantly choosing her sister over her but then “victim” became the only way she saw herself.
I knew somebody like this. She was utterly insufferable and used this victim mentality as an excuse to get people to do favours for her. Both narcissistic and Machiavellian at the same time.
Know a guy like this. He’s burnt his bridges at his job and now has to drive for Uber because he can’t get hired anywhere else. He’s also been 86’d from every bar in our area because he’s loud and obnoxious. But the reasons for these things are never HIM, it’s ALWAYS a conspiracy of some kind.
If they talk about how “nice” they are, huge red flag that they’re in fact the opposite
Reminds me of "I am the _most_ humble person ever".
"And, trust me, it's difficult to remain humble when you're the best."
I'm a million times as humble as thou art!
my old roommate was always trying to tell me how nice of a person he was. his version of nice was doing me favors I didn't ask for and then getting upset and hurt when I couldn't reciprocate. nice people don't have to tell everyone how nice they are, Andrew!
"I'm an empath."
I don't remember who said it, but I remember reading something along the lines of , "People going on about being empaths but somehow can't sense how annoying they are."
It's so hilariously, painfully accurate.
The one-upper who often invalidates others instead of supporting them.
When you tell them that something bad happened they gotta complain how they have it worse than you like they're in a pain contest.
Or instead of being happy for you when something good happened they gotta brag about how they have it better than you.
*Edit: revised "olympics" to "contest" because it's not what I thought it was, thank you for the replies. To the people who've shared your stories I'm sorry you had to experience that or deal with it. Also to the people who are trying to do better, good luck!*
I see you know my sister in law
My sister in law is far worse
I see what you did there... And it still pissed me off lol.
It pissed me off more
Oh you wanna talk about being pissed off? You don’t even know what being pissed off is until you’ve been me and experienced the things that piss me off more than you could ever even imagine being pissed off.
You guys, this is how it's done. Not just a one-up, but the one up that attempts to invalidate you and your experiences. Bravo stranger, you managed to legitimately capture the essence of being an ass with constipated diarrhea.
Edit: some weird grammar mistakes
I struggle with this so much. Not as a malicious “my pain is worse!” Type of thing, but as a way of trying to show I understand. Or if you tell me something happy I feel the overwhelming urge to say something happy as well so we can try to be happy together. Unfortunately though, I learned this from my incredibly self centered, toxic mother who actually does use this as competition. It’s so so hard to unlearn this behavior. It’s like unlearning your personality.
I’ve learned that asking questions or commenting about their story first there’s a way to avoid this.
Yes and after like two questions (without knowing nods) you can carefully mention your relatable experience
Nice, we have the same magical number. I’ve found asking a super relevant question and then a more general question gives a person all the prompting they need to tell me everything they want. Then when I share my words, I’m already confident that they are done talking and ready to engage in listening to me.
Good advice, thank you. I find I have this problem a bit, but when I remember to ask questions I actually help to provide the kind of support I want to be to my loved ones.
I think this is FAR less bad though, like if you know how to phrase it I don’t think there’s anything wrong with telling people “hey I’ve been there too”
I think what happens is we learn bad behaviours (talking about ourselves after someone expresses their problem) but we learn that that is where you should be supportive as well, so we find a way to do both
And I do think the whole “you’re not alone” sentiment IS supportive
I can relate, my ex friend was really close to me, and I had enough trust in them to talk about my trauma, where I got *raped* and they fucking started talking about their mother not letting them do something like its on the same level.
My dad is exactly like that, my grandfather (my mother's father) got hit by a car and after leaving the hospital had a stroke, guess what my dad says? "That could have been me" his exact words were that it could have been him, like dude, What is wrong with you? Your wife's father is in the hospital due to a stroke and was hit by a car and the only words that dribble out of your mouth are about yourself? He is by far the most self centered person I know.
When I had my hysterectomy three years ago, my mom was there with my husband after surgery. They got me to my room, and the pain started to hit me. It was pretty bad. Like my insides were on fire. I was crying and in pain, and my mother stood there, looking at me, and said "well, I guess some people just have a lower pain tolerance." My husband, not wanting to cause a scene, kept quiet. I couldn't even tell her to fuck off in that moment, but I'll never forget it.
There was a guy I went to school with up until the end of high school, and everyone (even teachers) hated him. He would constantly annoy everyone. He'd start shit with people for absolutely no reason. He'd interrupt the class regularly. He tried to act tough but when someone stepped up to him, he'd run away. He was nearly universally disliked everywhere he went.
I had the misfortune of running into him a few months ago and he's still the same shit disturber he always was. He hasn't grown up, and he tried dragging me into petty drama that I frankly don't have the time nor patience for anymore. I told him not to speak to me again, and blocked him on everything I could think of.
I knew a person like that in hs and just put up with talking to him so that the class could continue to function, otherwise half of it would just be their shit. We ended up becoming kind of friends and he told me how he was adopted and sexually abused as a child which put a lot of the shit he was pulling into perspective. After that I don't really judge 'that kid' as much, they could've been through something and at that age there's basically no way to get therapy. When teachers have students like this I swear they should just get the school's social worker person to deal with it, it's not up to teachers to be able to deal with all that
people who SCREAM at their LOUD speakerphone while talking on the phone. WHY?! mic enabled earphones are so fucking cheap. NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR YOUR DAMN PHONE CONVERSATIONS.
The person at work who acts entitled and superior to most their coworkers but leaves early or takes off for entire shifts more often than anyone can hardly count. Then complains about being behind on their work when they are actually AT work.
Had a coworker like this. She was the oldest person at work (and not at all a good representation of her generation, she was abused her whole life and was seriously kind of crazy), and she constantly told me about how lazy and entitled and spoiled my generation is. She worked the least hours out of all of us because she would leave early, not take on extra work, etc. man I could rant forever about her lol.
*me looking through comments to see if I’m annoying*
Dude im fucking learning, its great
10/10 comment. Would read again
Me: oh yea this is going to be good…
Also me: ah fuck I do some of these things…,
If you are self aware enough to look through the comments to see if any apply to you, that's probably a good sign.
'Only God can judge me'
And God thinks you're an asshole
worked at a male juvenile facility (maximum level offenders) for years. little shits would always say "only God can judge me." my reply-well, it looks like the court system and the penal system can as well. dumbasses, every one of them.
LISTEN HERE YOU LITTLE SHIT, I AM EMOTIONALLY INARTICULATE AND SO YOUR CHALLENGE TO MY WAYS WILL BE TAKEN PERSONALLY AND I WILL END UP SAYING SOMETHING REALLY FUCKED UP THAT ISNT BASED IN LOGIC SO I CAN CLING TO THAT AS A DEFENSE MECHANISM. TRY ME, BITCH.
Otherwise, gold star for you, Buckaroo!
"People have a problem with me because I tell it like it is"
"No offense, but..."
*proceeds to say something incredibly offensive*
Also, "Respectfully," *proceeds to say something disrespectful*
That's because they're using the wrong word. The phrase you use is "with all *due* respect" with the implication being that you're not due much.
People who are “brutally honest” only ever have bad things to say. If they were really invested in “telling it like it is” they would give awesome compliments too.
Also, watch them lose their shit when you get brutally honest about how unlikeable they are.
You know what the one thing all people who “tell it like it is” are incapable of? Hearing it like it is. I practically caused WWIII because my in-laws are such fuckbuckets.
The Big Lewboski covers this: “no, you’re not wrong, you’re just an asshole!”
The overly nice, sickly sweet public personality with venom underneath. Especially uncomfortable when the person is terrible at keeping that nice act up. My mother was one of those, I didnt realize how many people actively disliked her until I cut contact and opened up a bit.
Edit: thank you for the anonymous gifts. Thank you for the awards. First time resonating.
I’m certain these people are just hoping somebody says something to them so they can start shit. It’s always a very specific kind of person that does this.
That never occurred to me. I figured that they are probably looking for somebody to notice how cool they are.
They are certainly looking for attention.
As a larger, somewhat intimidating man, I did this once when a dude got on the train, sat across from me and put his music on full and without thinking about I I loudly asked “can you turn that off?” He looked at me like I just shat in his hat, a long glare. But then said “sure man, how’s your day going?” And proceeded to make small talk with me.
It was weird.
"Oh fuck. Small talk. Put the shitty music back on."
A few years ago in the city where I was living, a man was stabbed to death in front of his young son because someone was playing loud music in public and he asked them to turn it down.
When people flaunt their lack of boundaries and consideration for others, there's no way of knowing just how far that extends.
Please tell me the stabber went to prison
The stabber went to prison
I blew up on a customer doing this once when I worked at a cafe. Completely unprofessional, but I was so fed up.
"I need to know, what is going through your head right now? We're already playing music on the overhead speakers, why are you playing your OWN music out loud? Really, I want to know what your thought process is. Do you not realize that nobody wants to hear that?"
I never got my answer, and I honestly want to know what they're thinking. Is it a fuck you to everyone else? Do they just not care that people think they're assholes? Does it not occur to them that anyone thinks anything of it? I still don't know.
In the end, I gave him a pair of headphones from the lost and found.
> I honestly want to know what they're thinking.
This music is so awesome I need to share it with everyone else so they know how awesome I am that I listen to this awesome music.
Hey, Hey, Everyone!!! LOOK AT ME!!!!
I have a friend who does this with a Bluetooth speaker...big enuff to have wheels and a pull up handle...takes it with him EVERYWHERE!!...grocery stores ...restaurants ...you name it....if he sees people looking at him he thinks it's because he's got good taste in music.....he doesn't....ive tried to explain to him that it's rude and he just stares at me like I'm crazy.....i don't get it.
Edit: forgot "it" at the end
Edit 2: Welp...Because of the attention this comment has gotten, I decided to show it to him and let him read the comments...i believe it might have helped...he was mad at the "taste in music" part and I get that..someone replied that music is subjective and it most certainly is..I actually feel like a douche for writing that part...so thanks everyone for the comments...maybe there will be peace in WinCo and McDonald's in the near future..
I’d be embarrassed for him if I encounter that in a grocery store.
Sit behind them or next to them and play your own music louder. Make sure it's exclusively anime themes though.
Or just blare Ievan Polkka over and over.
Here’s the one I remember as the earliest one I ever saw:
I feel like Ievan Polkka is an honorary anime theme.
Extremely sloppy parking in a crowded lot, making the empty space next to them unusable.
Sometimes that’s the result of a shitty parking job, and sometimes it’s the result of being forced to park *next* to someone who already did a shitty job. Depending on the day, it could take hours for balance to be restored to the universe.
Any IG photo captioned, "What's YOUR excuse?"
Like, I'm so glad you've devoted your life to whatever you chose for yourself. But being unable to even conceive that others have different priorities makes you clueless and insufferable.
That person who thinks they know everything
"ok and? " "who asked"
Christ, my brother does this shit constantly, and then immediately complains about some random bullshit or the person who said the inciting sentence. Or starts going into gossip about people I have literally never met.
Recently stopped talking to a guy who would do this shit all the time. It got to the point that whenever he said it everyone else present would immediately tell him to shut the fuck up.
The people who drive through residential neighborhoods late on weeknights with their ridiculous sound systems blaring music so loud that it shakes the windows of your house.
you just don't understand how important bagpipe music is to me and that I must share my love for it, with everyone in 2 mile radius.
There's a colony of guys in my apartment complex who all drive shitty, 15-20 year old Subarus that they've dropped to the ground and installed mufflers the size of dinner plates. They all live in one building and park their cars in a row. They seem to at least be courteous about time of day but I can't tell you how fucking sick I am of my whole apartment rattling as they drive by going brrrrrrr BRRRRRRRRRRR ***BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR***.
It didn't really bother me until I was working from home 40 hours per week due to the pandemic. It started pissing me off after the 15th occurrence when I was talking in a zoom meeting and would have to mute because they decided they needed to rip past my apartment at 50mph with their mufflers blasting.
I luled at colony
I never understood the point of that; are they that self-absorbed that they think people want to hear their shitty music? It's never anything cool.
Saw a dude on a Harley gun it in walmart parking lot past the front. Was loud as fuck and I was so confused because he gunned it as loud and fast as he could to a stop sign 100 meters away. Like why?
It's about drawing attention to them. To find a mate.
When you're telling them about something that happened (like you getting hurt) and they interrupt and go "oh you think THATS bad? well i *proceeds to complain about them getting hurt worse then you as if it's cool and better* "
People who are rude to servers/ retail workers
If they use quotes such as "If you can't accept me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best" completely seriously.
When they try desperately to be 'grown up' all the time, and end up just being a boring person who complains about everything.
Everyone knew the one kid who thought they were more mature and grown-up than all the other kids but they were just a giant buzzkill
The people that leave their cart in the middle of the parking lot. Those people are the worst.
Entitled people who think everyone owes them something
That person who always assumes that if you have the friend the opposite gender you fancy them or you're dating.
In the same vein, people who think if you've a close friend of the opposite gender, you're friendzoned.
I fell for the whole friend zone thing when I was younger but it’s such bullshit. People like who they like and shouldn’t be pressured to date anyone for any reason
bisexuals arent allowed to have friends because obviously we cant control ourselves from crushing on every one of them
This one annoys me a lot. My mom and sisters do this all the time because half of my friends are girls.
Do you know who my dad is!?
Yes draco, we know
Finally, a post about me
Username checks out
Kid get hurt or sick? Fighting with a partner? Your 2nd cousin's cat died? Better post it alllllllllll on Facebook- in real time
Lots of bumper stickers meant to offend. It goes across the political spectrum too.
This pretty much just overlaps into people shaping their entire personality around a single aspect and deciding it defines them.
The person who starts rushing up the aisle once the plane lands rather than waiting for their row to exit
People who tell other people to smile more.
The person who never lets anyone finish talking
Edit: Damn! I literally wrote this comment right before I left for work and am on break now and seeing this! Thank you all so much for the upvotes and awards for something I literally just thought of off the top of my head lol
Whenever I’m helping a customer and they ask me a question, i will start to answer, but my coworker (who is nearby) will loudly cut me off and finish saying what I was saying. It always leads to awkward interactions since the customer doesn’t know who to look at anymore
edit: do you guys think it’s a good idea to gently bring up to her that it makes me feel really bad when she does that? she has ADHD and i don’t think she realizes how rude it comes across as. but also she’s kinda my manager and we work together daily so i don’t want to create tension
This just kills me. It escalates too. So now in meetings the only way to get a word in is to interrupt someone and it becomes an endless chain of interruptions.
Edit: oh wow it’s my cake day _and_ my most upvoted comment is one where I vent about work! Thank you my dear fellow redditors 🙏
My sister does this to herself. She goes off on a tangent which then has its own tangent and on and on. Also speaks very quickly and doesn't draw breath. If you try to say anything then you are interrupting. Very frustrating.
I worked sales/customer service in the bicycle industry for years. The amount of mechanics that would call from bike shops with questions about our products was insane. And ALL OF THEM KNEW MORE THAN ME! Every call would be a question about our product, and less than a few words in to my answer they would cut me off to let me know how much more they knew about the product than me………That I sold. Eventually I started using an amazing tactic. Any time I got cut off, I’d just go silent. And then when they were finished talking I’d just stay silent until they said ‘are you still there?’ And I’d answer with ‘oh yeah, just wanted to make sure you were finished, I don’t like cutting people off mid-sentence.’ Usually it just made them more upset and it was actually one of the best small victories life could offer.
Or the person who never lets anyone else talk. My husband doesn’t understand why I don’t hang out with his best friend’s wife more because she is funny and nice. She IS funny and nice but the “conversation” consists of me listening to her talk at supersonic speed and me rarely getting to say a word. I’ve tried just waiting until she runs out of steam but she never does. I’ve tried interrupting her but she just interrupts me. It’s a lost cause.
God, same situation here only I'm a guy. I had to basically put an end to hanging out with this couple because it would just be hours of the dude talking at me. Even if I could get a word in, he was awful listener so you could tell he was ignoring you and thinking of his next bout of verbal diarrhea.
Who else is scrolling through this making sure they don’t do any of these things?
Its even worse when i know i do some of these things like argue a lot and interrupt. Im working on them but this makes me feel even worse
This is usually towards a group of these people but those group of kids at school who are always obnoxiously loud and interruptive towards the whole class and don’t seem to give a rats ass about their education and others too.
"Do it this way. Do it this way. I know you're doing it this way but I want to make sure you remember to do it this way."
A person you’re just meeting or only recently met dumping all their personal drama and stories on you.
"May I speak with your manager? I'm a friend of the owner"
When I worked at a restaurant people would always try to pull that card when I told them that they'll have to wait for a table.
"I know Bob!"
Well I know Bob too, and he's going to chew my ass out if I let you jump the queue. And please, just because Bob comes over to your table to check in on you doesn't mean you "know" him, that's his job.
Once a classmate told me "I have a lot of pride. Even if I'm wrong I will never apologize". She seemed to find it totally normal. Big red flag... she was also very insolent toward teachers and thought it made her cool. 2nd big red flag... Also, she told me once her parents taught her how to steal. 3rd big red flag... and others. Almost everyone in my class hated her. She is so annoying and I don't see her changing a bit in future years. Should I specify that she is legally an adult ?
The new hire who, for some reason, talks to you like they're your boss and are full of ideas of doing things better.
If they use the word "diva" to describe themselves in any capacity.
Grown Person smoking within inches of their kid.
When I smoked I wouldn't even smoke with my DOG in the car, but my Grandpa wouldnt let me crack the window.
