What annoys you most about a person?

 Pages 1 2 3 4 NEXT
 

So, who's that one guy or girl at the party/in the classroom/wherever, that no matter what they do just seem to annoy you?

Personally, I can't stand cocky people. Particularly people who are loud and cocky. Confidence is great, but the "Hey, look at me, look at me, look at ME" attitude just sets me off. Not sure why yet. The reason I'm starting this thread is because I've just come across such a person who seems to think the entire world revolves around him. And now I am irked.

Tell me, escapists. Is it the know-it-all, the sex freak, the guy who just can't take a joke? What sort of personality just always seems to grind your gears? Do you know why?

Argh, yes, always the person that doesn't realises the world doesn't revolve around them, and need to remind everyone they exist all the time.

In the beginning of last year, had a guy like that in a course, forever telling everyone how much he knew without knowing anything. He later dropped down so we didn't have to deal with him anymore.

Second half of last year, had a guy like that, only he really did know what he was talking about most of the time. Still annoying, but not nearly as bad.

Self-righteous people. People who can defeat me in arguments come a close second, but the worst people I know are jerks who come up with excuses and suchlike. Like my brother, who unlike me is a Christian. (No offense to other Christians.) When it comes to for instance gay love he's against it, claiming that after all the Bible is pretty clear on the matter. Thing is, this brother of mine never ever donates to charity if he can help it. Now, let's ask ourselves: What did Jesus say about how to treat the poor? He was pretty clear on that point, right? Yeppers, he sure was... And still in that case, this brother of mine never ever tries to share anything with anyone. (Okay, so he did get me a couple of packets of cookies once, which was nice of him, but that's it.)

Overly happy and overly confident.
I find sadistic pleasure when they absolutely flub up and get the blues, if they're a disagreeable individual.
Otherwise I pity them and their tragic construction.

Oh, and when people can't hush up.
They continue on when it's unnecessary or they fail to notice that it's really not the time.
But...I suppose we're all guilty of that at some point.

overly cynical pessamistic and miserable bastards who like to spread their misery around under the guise that they are "smart/real/edgy"...

I'm pretty certain that you entirely misread that, because I'm a pretty happy person myself.
Being too much of one or the other is simply bad for one's health, but the cynic would probably be more accepting of misfortune.

I trust that you've never had somebody extremely confident and optimistic as a good friend and then witnessed them being pretty much destroyed by events that a person closer to a more neutral disposition would recover from? Because that's what I was getting at. It's truly a sad sight to behold, entirely deserving of pity.

happyness and being niave are not the same thing, same confidence and dellusion (though they can go hand in hand)

Stupid people, rednecks, and passive-aggressive people.

To quote a dear friend from another forum, "Stupidity deserves punishment."

You just described my circle of closest friends.

OT
People like this annoy me:

People who take "sadistic pleasure" in other's misfortune, no matter who they are.

It's just, if the sorrow of other's is what gives you a hard on, then you are the most "disagreeable individual" in existance.

Even worse when they smear their words in pseudo-intellectual babble.

Hey! Your new avatar! When'd you change it? I like it :)

OT: Arrogant people. Especially the ones who think they're cleverer than they actually are. On both sides of any issue it seems. They're the bane of all political/religious "debates" everywhere.

Haha, really? I find the know-it-alls sometimes possess a certain charm (in a Hermione Granger sort of way) and I don't really mind the other two.

I don't like arrogant people. One of my older brothers is full of himself, I grew up with him being a dick and it's made me really averse to those kind of people. If I get all armchair-psychiatrist on myself, I would say it's been a big factor in me growing up with very little confidence, partially from being constantly belittled as a kid and partially because I tend to immediately equate confidence to arrogance. Of course I have no idea what I'm talking about, so that's probably a load of horseshit.

There's not a lot of people I can say I really hate but I do dislike people who are always negative, pessimistic, cynical. I can totally understand the pain of some people and everybody as gone through harsh time but there comes a time where you have to take control of the boat that is life and enjoy the scenery while you're at it. Life is great, even better when you take the chances that are given to you :)
There's some people who seems to never grasp that and makes excuses on everything they can find. Or they just don't care which is worse. I know one or two person like that, it's sad and frustrating really.

Other than that rude and arrogant people but I'm pretty sure that's the case for everybody.

I'm going to go with pretentiousness.

Misanthropy and people that try to act cynical to be "edgy" or to come across as "mature and intellectual".

They call themselves cynics and misanthropes but I have another word for them ..... tossers.

Walking wastes of oxygen.

One phrase that seriously gets on my manly tits is "I have lost faith in humanity".

We all like a good rant, I love a good rant, but at the end of the day i'm a pretty jolly fella. It's when people try to hard to be cynical and humanity hating it just comes across as verbal shit. The world and humanity would be a much better place if they just shut the feth up.

Pretentious people who judge everything about you, tell a joke, they call you out on it if they don't find it funny by going "wow, so funny" sarcastically.

Have one in my class and she is also a paranoid wreck who believes a guy she fought with ages ago (who has long since forgotten about it) is talking shit about her when all the guy was talking to me about was what he did over the Christmas holidays.

She is not fun...

Arrogant "funny" people.
A friend of some friends of mine is the type to vandalise stuff for fun and be proud of it. (examples: destroy the faucet at a restaurant and proudly show us the the parts he stole. Or breaking of a friends windshield wipers, because that's real mature... Asshole (he's 32 btw...))

I don't know how to describe the situation in a more eloquent manner.

When an individual says something stupid, is called on it then responds "I was just joking".

Makes a little part of my brain twitch and I lose considerable respect for that individual.

Arrogance and condescension.

I believe the best way you can judge a persons character is in how they treat those around them, as a result I really don't care how intelligent or clever you may think you are, don't ever dare presume or act like you are better than anybody else for any reason.

Loud crass people, specially when they talk to me, there's this guy at work that's like that but he's always talking to me and he stresses me a lot, the other he asked me if I ever raped a girl and I was really close to punching him, and then he just went on and on asking me questions about sex and I didn't know what to do, I was really happy when he left because I was already starting to feel like I was going to cry, kinda odd that I feel like that very often but I rarely ever actually do it.

People you just won't shut their fucking mouths. Seriously, you go on and on talking shit about everyone, with little regards for the feelings of those around and you are surprised that I snap at you.

I'd like to make an addendum to that old saying: "If you don't have anything nice OR INTELLIGENT to say, don't say anything at all."

black and white thinking. where everything is either the best thing in existance or the worst thing that will end the world

A few of them can be directionless, yes, but others do raise/have vaild points and concerns. What exactly is wrong with not liking other people? I don't know if you are stereotyping or not, but it sure sounds like it.

Me, I can't stand it when a person is either 1. Too clingy and doesn't know it or 2. Incredibly hostile towards X view without hearing the reasons behind it (in otherwords, most people).

I can not stand people who talk about "the future", when they say that they really mean their future. I am currently a senior in highschool, and I am surrounded by everyone who has a "full prof plan" which always involves college, and an arbitrary job they will get with their college degree that will make them "tons of money". Nothing is wrong with planing for the future, but people who are say they are 100% sure that they will find success and that success will bring them happiness. I hate people who do not know that literally anything can happen, and life will sometimes just take a massive dump over their hopes and dreams.

Ooo, that's a tough one...

See, there's one type of people that really grind my gears, but defining them is kind of difficult.

I'm alright with you thinking differently to me. Especially if we're talking matters of opinion.
I'm also alright if you have some things based on faulty logic or evidence. That's fine, but I'll most likely correct you on said faulty evidence/logic.
I'm even alright with you reclassifying your argument when I show the flaws in your previous one. I'm not saying continuing your argument is bad.
But it's when you totally ignore everything I said, and continue to blindly say "No, I'm right" without even addressing me at all, deliberately, with NOTHING new in your argument - in essence ignoring what I say - where I start to get a bit annoyed.

... Thinking about it, I just sort of hate being ignored in general. Except when the stuff I say isn't really that important.

Mostly it's religious views or conspiracy theories, and especially views that have no substance or backing, but as far as behaviour, condescending, superior (except when it's true, praise be to Jim), thinking they know what I think and what I am when they don't, responding to a well thought-out point with stupidity by way of misdirection, mindless dickishness, casual intimidation by being loud, and not having common courtesy. In the case of the latter, it's mostly because I don't know anything else about them, the only contact will be they run in front of me then slow down to less than my walking pace or something trivial, and that being the only experience I have, I think of them as an asshole.

So this. I have a friend who's going out with a guy who is big into computers and logic. He's really smart at some things, but he seems to think that he's smart at everything, and thus, talks down to me.

I hate that guy. Just because I don't know how to code a function doesn't mean I don't know how to BREATHE, asshole.

In my friends? Persistent self destrucive behaviour.

Otherwise it's people who judge people instantly.

Loud people. Seriously my biggest office gripe, when people for example seem to forget that a telephone doesn't require them to yell.

The type of person who only talks about doing things to help themselves, complaining about everything and yet never actually doing anything to resolve the issue.

There's someone like that in my English class. What makes it well and truly aggravating is that she's also, without exaggeration, the single most inanely stupid person I've ever met who didn't have to have a carer with them all day to stop them licking passersby.

Like, someone (often me) will make a joke, or remark, and she starts acting all judgmental and condescending. Then we'll be getting on with class work, like discussing an assigned text and she'll suddenly blurt out something to do with her personal life, etc without any context.

There's also this girl that I was very good friends with last year, and we have a lot of friends we both hang out with and this year, every fucking time we're together as part of a group, she starts taking every excuse to literally shout at me. I've been quite polite so far, but I'm really getting sick of it.

I can't stand my roomie when he sucks his thumb during the day and when he sleeps since it's a childish thing to do and he knows it but won't do anything about it which half the time makes me want to punch him in the face because of how immature and irritating it truly is.

I also dislike arrogant,smug,cocky,show boating,attention whoring kind of people.

Also the kind that just plain swear at you from the very beginning for no reason at all, those people are the weirdest I have ever come across.

People who can't shut up and must yell when something is only mildly aggrevating anything. Only One person have I met with these two characteristics; and I hope he gets hit by a truck. Or goes back to whatever alien planet he came from.

People who think they're better than you because they've learned a martial art.

It's not really a problem for me any more, but back in the days of the old school yard, oh boy was it annoying.
