^^^ THIS. I cannot stand it. For example, yesterday I passed a woman in the grocery store; she was smiling, so I smiled back at her. Then I realized that she wasn't looking at me at all. She had a wire thing in her ear and was talking on her phone to someone while pushing her shopping cart. She was smiling at her conversation.
I truly felt like slapping her.

I am looking forward to the day when there are support groups for cell phone addicts, because I believe that's what it is - an addiction.

What sends me up a wall is when my husband or someone in my family tells me "A normal person wouldn't say, do, react that way." Who the hell died and made them king of the universe to decide what is or is not a normal reaction from me??? Oh it just burns my biscuits.

More cell phone stuff. People who talk REALLY LOUD on their cell phones in stores.

I have been trying to work on letting go of things that bother me but I do find things get on my nerves. I don't understand, for instance, why people often don't keep to the speed limit, and when I do they tail gate me. I get irritated when people let their small children play close to the street. I also don't like it when bank tellers get all chatty. Just give me my cash and let me leave, already!

Default Re: What incomprehensibly ‘irks’ you?

people that start conversations with

" hi, I'm bored."

I usually want to say... and what do you want me to do about it?

or people that think what you're doing is " boring", then when you ask them what they are doing they say " oh, nothing much."

also people that insist on being late or lazy, with no real/ valid excuse

and people that want the world given to them on a silver platter

people that work in UK shops or on UK telephone lines that can't speak the language.

I mean fair enough- people come and work here from all over the world and english isn't going to be their first language all the time.

that's fair enough

what's not so good is when people take on the job and can't speak it at all

even simple words like "hi " and " bye" are challenging

I recently binge-watched the series “Dexter” and I became so annoyed with the series because of the cell phone overload; and this was a work of fiction. Probably paralleled in reality, though.

I am pretty much irked this very moment.

I attended a job fair near three weeks ago. I passed the screening interview and went on to a second. I was told I would hear back about a final interview yet now there has been not a word.

This really upsets me as I have cancelled plans and set things aside so as to make myself available. Apparently, I am now guessing, they have decided I don't pass muster after all and have set my application aside. How rude though to not contact me to advise me of such. How dare they leave people hanging on the edge. How unprofessional. Even an email would be nice.

I would never do this to someone else. When I myself was part of a hiring process, we ensured every individual who made it this far in the process was contacted regardless of the decision.

So yeah, I find this incomprehensible that a company of this size would be so rude.
