annoying people

November 12th, 2006


  • laugh at stupid jokes, accepting a low standard of conversation.
  • tell stupid jokes.
  • are slow to catch on to things that are being said, and once they do they don't just keep quiet, they say 'oooooh' every two minutes.
  • ask you to repeat what you said. Again. (A keen observer would realize that they're not getting this particular point and just let it go.)
  • understand about 30% of what you said, but insist on having the remainder explained in every little detail.
  • hang on to some little expression you used and when you explain it in different words [to give an equivalent statement], they still make you explain the expression.
  • constantly mix languages in a conversation for no reason (because they need/want an expression they often use).
  • switch languages in a conversation for no reason.
  • make what they think is a witty comment that makes no sense at all to the context and when called on it insist that 'it was a joke, lighten up'. [this one seems to proliferate lately]
  • try to make you laugh and when failing accuse you of not having a sense of humor.
  • are so loud you can't not hear them in the other room if you try.
  • engage you in conversations about the most pointless issues.
  • have their own 'signature expressions' that they insist on using in just about every sentence.
  • use common expressions, incorrectly.
  • completely dominate conversations, even those involving a group of people.

    Think their personal pet peeves are generally true statements (see above blog for examples).

    Hey, the blog is what it is, an expression of personal opinions. Sometimes stated as 'facts' for emphasis. I didn't think it needed a disclaimer to state this explicitly.
