10 Things That Annoy Me

I’m pretty laid back until I’m really pushed. I usually just take things in my stride or may have a little under the breath rant but normally move on unless it’s something I’m passionate about. These are ten things I really struggle to turn away from:

1. Lies

I hate people who tell lies. There are no need. Lies hurt people and in the end benefit nobody. They also wreak lives and often mean the trust in you had in someone can never be regained. It’s sad, when people have to resort to lies.

2. Spitting

It’s a very filthy habit and I see no place in a modern society for it.

3. Litter Dropping

Simply find a bin or take it home. There’s just no need for it.

4. Know It Alls

I hate when people think they know what is best for me. I think it’s very difficult for anybody to have walked in exactly the same shoes as another. Yes, you may have had similar experiences but there is usually something that differentiates you. Often, this advices is given without being asked for. Why?  Why do people feel the need to do that?  Tell another what they should do without being asked?

5. The Media’s Influence

Why does the media feel the need to tell us what we should do. Tell us what we should feel. Then criticise us when we don’t conform to what the Media dictates is right. I am a firm believer in being my own person. I don’t want to be like everyone else. Is that so wrong?

6. Bad Manners

Quite simply there is no need.

7. Doctors Surgery Receptionists

Are they a different breed of person to the rest of us?  Having said that the ones at my new surgery seem quite nice and very helpful.

8. Supermarket Self Checkouts

Do I need to say anything?  One of the worst things invented.

9. Add On Sales

I’m an adult. If I wanted to buy something extra I’d have picked it up. I just despise pushy sales people.

10. Old People At Bus Stops

Have they never heard of queuing?  Have they never heard of a little extra traffic and sometimes a bus is late?  Why do they get so worked up about it?  I just don’t understand how they suddenly turn in to strange creatures I vessel with the time keeping of a bus.

But what I do like are pretty flowers and every post should have a picture. This post needs a photo that cheers me up!

What things don’t you like?  Do you agree with my list or would you pick other things?

    All of these things annoy me, I would probably expand from just old people and buses though, I pretty much despise everyone else who is on the bus or waiting for the bus with me, hence I avoid buses!! #TheList

    No.7 OMG they are rude… whenever they ask what I want to see the Dr about, I always ask if they have a medical degree, when they say “No” I say “Then I still want to see the Dr” x

    I agree with you, especially with No.1 i have no time for liers.

    I’m not usually one to complain but I agree with most of these. Old people at bus stops – oh my goodness, it’s always the same! If they’re not complaining about the buses being late or the ‘disgusting tardiness’ then it’s ‘oooh dear, it’s cold today, put the hood up on the pram’ or similar. Sssshhh!

    Omg old people at bus stops I know what you mean, I have the exact same experience on my way from work today! One even tutted at me because she could see my uniform and decided that I was single handedly to blame for the countries gambling problem. She got an eye roll, today was grand national day, I worked for 8 hours straight no break not moving from my till and at 6.30 pm I was still yet to eat! Also I ave a know it all sister so I feel you there!

    Hee hee old people at bus stops! You’d think they’d have learned by now and not get so irate when the bus is late. I have spitting too, absolutely disgusting 🙁 x x #TheList

    Lies annoy me too and internet trolls! I’m being trolled at the moment by someone who’s determined to make my life difficult and spread lies about me and it’s even having an effect on my real life because I’m afraid to leave the house and when I’m at home I check four times that the front door is locked. I’m having to move to get away from him.
