Hi everyone! I got the idea for this post from an Alfie Deyes pointless blog youtube video where he spoke of things people do that annoy him. I think a few of the things he said on the video could have come across as offensive to some people and I’m sure he said that too 😂 so I don’t mean for this to! (It’s not meant to upset anyone).
This isn’t me talking about things that would annoy me, this is me talking about things that people have done to me before that offended me ontop of annoyed me, so I think that softens the blow a bit 😂 This is what I meant when I said I would do rants on my Welcome post 😂. This post may not sound so positive like I portray my blog as being, but I’m only human. My blog is a place for me to escape from my not so positive chronic pain so I like to add happyness to it! Think of this post as a way to vent (venting is positive right?! 😂) It still has an air of positivity about it I think while talking about stuff that is anything but 😏. People that talk about things other people do that annoy them might have once annoyed me before but it’s all done in light-heartedness.
1. Assume that I don’t know things.
I understand how to keep a conversation going I have to understand what people are talking about but when they start the conversation by asking me “do you know what a KitKat is?” I zone out 😂. Of course I know what a bloody KitKat is! They are delicious 😍 some people may not know what they are (they are a nestle chocolate bar) , but the person who asked me had bought them for me before 😂 so they knew that I know what they are (sorry for the confused writing 😵) and have probably seen my secret stash in my bedroom 😏😂. This has happened a few times but I thought that when the person asked me do I know what a KitKat is and went on to give a quick description anyway was the best one so you could all see how ridiculous it really is 😂
2. Be openly nosy
Okay so I’m a little nosy myself 😂 and I would love to be invisible to wander around people’s houses (I would make a fabulous poltergeist 😂) so I can’t put people down for that because I don’t think anything is so wrong with it to an extent (I wouldn’t go as far as walk in people’s houses without their permission) Makes sense as to why people like soap operas so that we can all see what is going on in strangers houses 😂. But some people take it abit too far and put you on the spot throwing rock sized questions at you that make you feel uncomfortable. Well they have me anyway…So I just assumed (damn it!)😂.
I felt the full force of those rocks when a lady who was also volunteering at a charity shop when I was, started questioning me where I was from. Even I can tell it’s obvious that I have a British accent as people have asked kindly before about it, but this lady was persistent! She wouldn’t stop until she got it out of me where I was from (London), she didn’t like it when I said both my parents are from England too because she wanted to know where I got my skin colour from (I’m mixed race), she asked me why I live in Ireland and I said I have Irish relatives on my mum’s side (so then she realised my dad is black and not my mum), she asked me if my dad lived with me!! And if my parents had jobs (they do but why would she want to know? I’m there, not my parents) this was all so hurtful.
She shut up when I said I’d lived in Ireland for 13 years, and I still don’t get it? She looked like she was getting angry with my answers like I wasnt the stereotypical person she expected me to be. I know that it sounds odd I would tell her these things but I don’t think I’ve ever felt that much pressure before 😂. plus I didn’t go as far as tell her what type of knickers I was wearing as she was good at hiding her ultimate nosyness …Plus that would have been weird and she didn’t ask me😂.
Anywho! It felt like interrogation at the time as I don’t think she would have asked me if I was older and looked like I would tell her to mind her own business. I told my mum, who spoke to the lady who I worked under. The lady I worked for told us that this other lady had done this kind of thing before and she would speak to her about it…As you can imagine I got out of there quickfast! 😂😅. Stapled my finger with the tag gun a few times aswell 😬😫 let me just tell you..The sting was unreal! 😂..So yeah great day! 😂 I’m glad I got the work experience though and the customers were lovely.
3. People who say that they apologize if they did something wrong.
Is it only me that this annoys? When people know that they have done something wrong they say “I apologise if I have offended you”…Yes you have offended me, not “if” thats why you are apologizing. It makes it seem like they don’t care or dont even realize what they did wrong and are leaving problems unresolved….There’s me leaving this post on a high! 😂
Thank you for reading! 😉💗 What kind of things has someone you have met done to annoy you? (nothing that will offend other readers though 😂).
