(Un)intentional Annoyances & How To Avoid Them.

We all have certain habits that tick off other people. Sure, its normal. But more often than not, they make little sense. People may not be as blunt as they ought, out of the niceness of their heart, but its like the itchy feeling around a scab. You know you must itch but your wound probably wont agree. So the longer you keep repeating such ridiculous behavior, the sooner you can bid your friends goodbye. I’ve tried being nice for the longest time, now I’m just going to be incredible snarky on here. Enjoy, grouch, rant and even turn away, if you have to.

Those that ask you “whats up?” thrice a day. For Heaven’s sake, quit it. I’m just not the party animal that you are. My day comprises of mundane things like going to college, coming home, assignments, eating, sleeping and if I’m lucky then a few minutes of reading or TV. Pardon me, if I don’t have hot updates about the five different parties I attended in a single day. Also, if something was “up” I’d tell you the first time, your question is not going to miraculously make my day more happening.

Two faced rogues. I find tons of these – those who behave enthusiastically face to face and couldn’t bother to reply with a “K” on text message (or vice versa). Now I don’t know how much of their friendliness is a show. Cause, buddy, if I was looking for some drama, I’d switch on the TV. Why you’d, so evidently, want to display your colorful side is beyond me. Its bothersome. Really, it is.

Those that send you their headshots. How beautiful. You’ve grown a minuscule mole since the last selfie you sent me yesterday. Its another matter if the selfie actually shows what you have been upto. And that’s totally fine. As a friend, I want to know whats been keeping you up and happy. But what was the point of zooming in on your nose? And that too, on a daily basis…?

Them negatives. People who are constantly whining about their pathetic lives should know better than to burst our happy bubble. We, positives, could smack your sorry faces and make you see the silver lining. But your gloom wears us down too. We are all for helping you as long as you want to change. If that’s not going to happen, why are you still here?

Insistent, stubborn mules. You really don’t want to encounter these species. They will make you learn new aspects of sign language cause in their presence, that is the only form of communication you’re going to put forth. They will chase the words, forming in your mind, in the opposite direction. Even if the their argument is wrong and the truth is a wide-open-eye distance away, they are going to shake their pesky little head at you, till the ground swallows them up.

What do you do if you identify yourself with an annoying habit? Reflect and put a cork on it (or not, whatever floats your boat) 😛 This post wasn’t meant to hurt anyone, just a few thoughts I’ve been having for awhile. I hope I didn’t scare you off with all that jazz. I do enjoy making new friends 😀
