WORLD'S MOST ANNOYING & THINGS PEOPLE DO

Follow Me on Pinterest


Most us can actively admit to ourselves when something or  someone is annoying us, but many are afraid to come out in the open and let a stranger know what they are currently doing is annoying. The list below is for people who may or may not have any clue that doing the following things are just ANNOYING.










#10.
" I AM SORRY, 
I CAN'T HEAR YOU! 
YOU ARE BREAKING UP!" 


For some reason these few words are super annoying to the average person.  This is simply because when someone says this, it is usually repeated what seems like 100 times in a row.

" I AM SORRY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU! 
YOU ARE BREAKING UP!"

" I AM SORRY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU! 
YOU ARE BREAKING UP!"

" I AM SORRY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!
 YOU ARE BREAKING UP!"

" I AM SORRY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU! 
YOU ARE BREAKING UP!"

" I AM SORRY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU! 
YOU ARE BREAKING UP!"

" I AM SORRY, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!
 YOU ARE BREAKING UP!"

If the repeat pattern above annoys you, then how much more annoying is it if you happen to be sitting next to someone who continues to do this. 

HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS:

If  you are the victim of being around someone who is constantly saying this, your best bet is just to try to ignore them and hope that their cell phone just completely shuts off. If you are really bold you can quietly tap them on the shoulder and ask them to please end their phone conversation for the sake of the sanity of those around them. However, if you are the culprit, just understand that you are annoying everyone and if you are truly unable to hear that person, do the world a favor. Hang up and try again later when you have better reception.

 CC TO: 1,000 PEOPLE
 AND THEN YOU!
 To anyone who does not know what this means, CC refers to copying others when SENDING EMAILS. Notice that I said sending emails with an s. When you receive an email that you are copied on,  likely  a person  was just trying to send a personalized email WITHOUT taking the extra time to make it personal. They just decided to send  the same email to everyone on their email list.  NO ONE LIKES THIS!  For those of you who are unaware, this is actually a form of disrespect to your personal friends and family. If you are trying to send a message, do yourself a favor and send them individually. Unless it is a company wide email, people will quickly lose respect for you if they discover that you are spamming them with non personable emails.

 Is it egocentric for people to feel this way?

ABSOLUTELY, however, put yourself on the receiving end. How does it feel for you to get a so called “private” message with 1,000 other  names attached to it.

BE KIND, BE COURTEOUS, 
DON’T USE BCC…

"I AM THE MOST WONDERFUL 
PERSON YOU WILL EVER MEET!"

Believe it or not complimenting yourself too much is NOT a good thing. Although you should always tell yourself that you are a wonderful person, it is not exactly appropriate to shout this out to everyone you hear. At this point, someone may have to ask you, “Who are you trying to convince?”  If you are a wonderful person, people may or may not acknowledge it openly, but sometimes it is better to let another man praise you and not your own. There is nothing more annoying than a person who just cannot stop talking about themselves. If you happen to be on the receiving end and you have to deal with a person like this….IGNORE THEM.  Hopefully they will stop but unfortunately this is usually a tactic to get other people to agree with them. People like this generally lack self-esteem and they are always seeking outside validation.

#7.
SOUND OF A BABY 
CRYING ON A PLANE!

WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Although this was put at number 7, honestly it should have been much higher on  the list. The only thing that is keeping this annoying sound or habit at number 7 is the understanding that babies cry.  However, when you see a five year old screaming and crying on a plane (ESPECIALLY on an early morning flight) that is where most people draw the line.

HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS? 
It all depends on how long your flight is. If you have a 24 hour flight somewhere, you may want to kindly address this to the flight attendant or the parent.  (BE PREPARED FOR AN ARGUMENT IF YOU APPROACH THE PARENT). However, if your flight just happens to be two hours or less, then maybe you can ignore it. Always bring a pair of headphones for a plane ride, trust me when I say they can come in handy…

 ASKING A PERSON HOW THEY ARE DOING....AND THEY REALLY TELL YOU....

In America asking a person that you do not know (or even those they are well acquainted  with) how they are doing, is similar to saying hi. Many people just want to quickly say hi or ask how you are doing and move on. BUT, sometimes this does not go according to plan. When you suddenly  actually get a full report on what they have been doing since the 1950’s this can be, well, ANNOYING!

HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS?
If you are a person who is constantly asking people this question and honestly expecting everyone to say  fine so you can move on with your life, I would highly recommend that the next time you ask a random person EXPECT that some person  may actually answer you. Be prepared to take a seat.

But, if you happen to be that person who is constantly telling people in detail how you are doing, it is time for you to recognize that there are some people who do not care. Always save those private moments of agony for the people who are closest to you or someone you know does not mind hearing you babble at the mouth.

BOTTOM LINE: Don’t ask someone something unless you genuinely care enough to know.  ALWAYS BE GENUINE.




#5. 
NEGATIVE NANCY!
Constantly being around a negative person is just….EXHAUSTING!  Some people enjoy the misery of others, but even after a while, THEY get fed up with the negativity that is constantly running through a person's veins. There is a point where anyone would get fed up with this behavior. NO ONE ENJOYS CONSTANT NEGATIVITY!

HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS?
On a serious note, this could actually be a sign of a more serious problem such as depression or a mental illness if a person is always being negative. If you are the one who is doing the negative speaking then you may want to consult with your mental health provider and discuss why there is so much negativity that is coming through your mouth. However, if you happen to be on the other side of NEGATIVE NANCY, it is best to try to negate every negative word that comes out of that person’s mouth with a positive word.

"I LOVE YOU, YOU ARE MY BESTIE!!!!"

FAKE PEOPLE can really flat out be annoying.  Many of us are fooling ourselves by believing that everyone likes you. This is not only not true, but it is not possible. DO YOU LIKE EVERY ONE YOU ENCOUNTER? Probably not and that is okay.



HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS?
You do not have to like everyone, but respect is mandatory. Respect includes being cordial, not kissing their rump. Honestly, on both sides, at the end of the day you gain respect by NOT faking your attitude.




#3. 
"I CAN NOT SEEM TO LOSE WEIGHT!!!!
 I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY! 
YOU ARE SO LUCKY YOU CAN EAT ANYTHING YOU WANT!!!!! 

CAN YOU PASS ME A DONUT????"



 HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS?



#2.
    IS THAT A GOOD BOOK?
For the people out there who are in love with reading, like myself, this question ranks as the most annoying thing someone can do. Why would you ask a person if the book they are currently engaged in is a good book? Chances are, if they are in the middle of a great novel, they do not want you interrupting them.

HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS?
If a person puts the book down, then you can ask. And if you are the one who is being asked in the middle of a novel, ignore them. REMEMBER  you are reading a good book. Sometimes good things are distracting.




#1. 
REALLY??? WELL....
YOU DID THAT BUT I DID....
This is the comparison game. It made the list for the number one most annoying things a person can do. There is nothing more annoying than having an innocent conversation with someone and all of a sudden they turn it into a game of competition. You innocently want to share a weekend trip get-a-way with your family, and the next thing you know they are talking about a much much better place that they just recently went…BETTER THAN YOURS…

HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS?
Stay away from people who are constantly playing the game of comparison  Not only are they miserable individuals but whether they want to admit it or not, they are trying to make the next person feel as bad as they do. This behavior can be intentional or unintentional,  but the results are still the same. Comparison creates hate and destruction.


If you are currently the person who is constantly comparing your life with others, take a moment and thank God for the blessing that you have and stop comparing. It will only lead you to a life full of unhappiness. 



"And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them (Luke 6:31)."
