I know you know what I am talking about. I am a pretty easy going person but sometimes people can just get on my nerves. It really bugs me when some self righteous person comes along and judges me simply because they don not understand the full extent of something. Give me a break. Everyone is different and reacts to things differently and has things affect them differently. No one knows what I go though, or what I feel, or what I think, except me. So don't try to say that you do know. This is, of course only one reason why people aggrevate me, but it is the one that is fresh in my mind right now. So what do people do that aggreavates you?

I sometimes get irritated by the arrogance in people.Even when they know what they are advocating might be flawed ,they never give others a chance to speak their minds.To them what they have learned is the final truth and no one can as much as make them listen to a new perspective.I find such strong headed people difficult to befriend because they have a made up mind about everything and can't be reasoned with.

You are so right. I mean, nothing is black and white anymore, and people really need to have open minds. I agree with you about befriending these type of people. I don't mind if someone is strong minded and has their own definate opinons as long as they allow others to have their opinions too. It is those that think their word is Gospel that really bug me. Thanks for responding.

I think the big thing that people do that aggravates me is expecting me to be "normal". Yes, I am weird. My life has been weird. I behave in ways people don't understand sometimes, and yet even when I am willing to explain, they thing I should "act normal" no matter what my reasons for not doing so are. I can't believe the number of times I haven't been told that I should just keep my mouth shut rather than offering my thoughts on something when my experience with it has been different from everyone else's, or that I should stop letting my personal history influence how I react to people. How does one do that anyway???? Grrrr.

lecanis, you go right on being weird. I think it is a shame that more people aren't weird. Weird people add character to the world. Besides, normal is relevant, it really depends on an individuals perception. Anyone who doesn't let their history influence them in some way or another is just plain living a lie. No one can have things not affect them in some way. Be proud that you are weird and don't worry about those who don't understand. thanks for responding.

I'm the same, I hate people who can't let things be and let others have their beliefs. I also don't like really stubborn people who just won't listen.

I don't mind stubborn people as long as they are open minded enough to listen to what other people have to say, unfortunately they usually are horrible listeners. Thanks for responding.

There are alot of things people do that gets me going. When people try to sneak before u in a line or que.. When people dont listen or just are ignorant. I guess there is a word to name them all though. When people do not show respect - that really annoyes me.

Oh yea, respect is sadly not something enough people show. I think it is one of the most important things to teach our children but I fear many people forget that, as they probably don't show respect either. Thanks for responding.

What aggrevates me are people who pushes their belief in you. I know a lot of people who likes to talk about their preachings and teachings about their religion. What I hate the most is when they become righteous and condemn those who doesn't have the same belief, think what they know is the only right thing in the world. It's really aggrevating when they start babbling about what their God or what Jesus said or whoever like I'm suppose to be scared and should join them. I have relatives like this and I'm so glad I don't see them a lot now since I got married. I

Oh I completely agree with you on this. My mother in law is the same way. I just wish people had more open minds about things. The worst thing about it is, that trying to stuff their beliefs down our throats is a sure fire way to make us walk away. Thanks for responding.

The truth is that some days...OK, many days, it is no safe to leave home. When you leave home and go out and deal with the real world you come back and you are so tired...your feet hurt...you have been insulted. You are frustrated with clueless people. It is better to stay home if you can. :)

I don't think you should let the stupidity, negativity and meaness of other people keep you locked in your own home. It is just all about controling what you can control and that is your own emotions. It is a hard fight but one worth fighting. I know that there are days that I fall and let others afect me more than I should, but I get back out there. That is not saying that I have had days were I prefer to stay home and not deal with the world either, but those days are few and far between. thanks for responding.

a certain friend of mine is acting like he's way ahead of me although he's not and absolutely the other way around... he always builds up his own capabilities and making remarks of me that is underestimating me in a subtle way.

The most aggravating thing people do (as far as I am concerned) is they don't listen! Most people only listen to 25 percent of what is being said (if that) and then go off with assumptions and presumptions - making comments about something they know nothing about!

That's a good one. You are so right. there would be far less fighting if people would actually listen. Good listening is a skill that has to be learned and maintained. it is a shame that more people don't try harder. thanks for responding.

I've seen many people here in mylot who thinks of them as superior over others, and that, really pisses me off. I think they know who they are, because I don't post to their discussions. Most of the times, I go for those posts here that needs guidance(for newbies) or for those that are confused on how this site works. I know and have read mylot's guidelines and FAQ's, and I hate people making their own conclusions but not referring to what mylot has provided for us. They are not helping, they are misleading them and others, as I've seen, are taking advantage of them. So for me, I do my best to give them the most possible explanation and help them understand more about mylot. Because I don't want them to be misguided by other mylot members here, who has other intentions rather than offering a simple help..

I hear ya. I think that all members should read all the guidelines and faq's at least once every month in order to catch any changes. I think it is fine if people want to give advice as long as the advice is correct. I have been known to give advice here about mylot, but my advice always comes straight from the guidlines and faq's. Thanks for responding.

ok this one is kinda minor, but really p.. me off. When a car pulls out in front of you, causing you to slam on your breaks. and when you check your rearview mirror, there is not another car in sight...they couldnt have just waited an extra 5 seconds for you to get past and then pull out in the clear....Ugh. No wonder car insurance is so expensive...

People get on my nerves when they tell me I can't possibly know what I am talking about, and that they know the most about everything under the sun. That irritates me to no end. I mean, hello people....I am not stupid and I don't appreciate you implying that I am, or that you think I am! (Sorry...just had to get that little bit off my chest.)

You vent all you need to, and don't apologize for it. I hear what you are saying. I think that when people do that it is because they don't really know the answers so getting your flustered and mad thinking that they think you are stupid helps change the subject so they don't really have to contribute. Did any of that rambling make any sense? Anyways, thanks for responding.

People get on my nerves when they don't pay attention, or do something totally selfish, like get in my way when I'm trying to walk somewhere. I watch where I'm going, why the heck can't they? Why do people stop and do dumb things without thinking, yet I am expected to watch where I'm going and pay attention at all times? Why do people do things that I know I would never get away with?

Oh I agree with you on that. It does surprise me sometimes, the nerve that some people have. tonight my husband was at McDonalds and the clerk said here is your order, when some big woman pushed my husband out of the way and the reached into the happy meal box, took out the fries, looked in the box and then put the fries back. My husband looked at her and said what are you doing, that is my order. She just rattled something off in Spanish and walked away. Then my husband asked for new fries since the woman had gotten her grubby hands on them and the clerk argued with him about replacing them. Some people. AArrgh! Thanks for responding.

I really have a high tolerance for people but there are times when this one person would come along that just rubs me the wrong way. I can't really pinpoint what it is, yeah, it may be that they're so arrogant and thinks that they're all that and the world revolves around them. Yeah, I think that might be it. I'm thinking of an officemate who sometimes irritate me by her attitude.

Yep there are people who just irritate you simply by breathing. I have really only had one person like that in my life and she just drives me nuts, and she is arogant too, thinking she has all the answers and that her sweat don't stick. Well guess what woman, you stick more than most. Just thinkng of her gets my blood boiling. So I understand where you are coming from. I wonder if arrogance is a common factor in these types of issues. I don't know, I always just said that we must have been enemies in another life which is why I can't pinpoint why we don't get along, but it explains the strong emotions that are there. Thanks for responding.

People judge me because I am a little overweight and because I go to the bars and listen to the bands thatI know and also people judge me because of who I hang around with I think there is nothing wrong with them but other people think different.

People should strive not to judge others by anything other than who the actually are. I do think that judging other people is something people do when they are not happy with or comfortable with themselves. Thanks for responding.
