I find them to be rude and obnoxious. I'll let them know it too. I really get irritated by people who insist on telling me their opinion or view on things when they were not asked for it. What is worse are the ones who just come on over, who you don't know, and start telling you everything you are doing wrong. That to me is beyond rude and they need to learn to butt out of other people's lives.

I think it's rude. There are a lot of those people at work and it's just crazy rude.........I guess their parents didn't teach them manners, but it's something you just don't do unless invited to a conversation or situation. It's just poor manners period.

For me that's simple, if there is someone like that I simply say "MIND YOUR BUSINESS, BECAUSE I WAS NOT TALKING TO YOU" Sometimes you have to be like that to get your point across...I don't bite my tongue for know one when people seem to want to invite themselves into something I'm conversing with someone else about. Makes me wonder do they just not have a life or simply no respect...Whatever happened to excuse me yanno...good topic thanks

I guess that depends on who it is. If it's a friend, then I usually assume they are doing it because they care about me. I think nosiness and curiousity are just natural instincts although there are definitely times when I'd like to tell people to butt out, lol

OMG they drive me nuts!!! I know to them, in their own minds they think they are being helpful. I give them credit for that, but man they are really a huge pain. Bless their hearts, you just want to show them a new hobby to get into or something, you know?

hmm~ maybe they are really concerned with you? However, overdoing it can mean nuisance .
