Re: What Is Something That Really Annoys You..

oh my god @StarLord thats mine too. ESPECIALLY people on tran station escalators and there is a VISIBLE train RIGHT THERE about to LEAVE. I once had a woman shout at me because "people should learn not to be impatient" and "I want to stand next to my children", never mind that if I miss this train I'll be late to work ._. 

 

Another pet peeve is people taking pictures without asking. It's so rude - I've had someone point a camera right in my face just casually, then got upset when I swore at him. When people do that I've started taking pictures of them back, and now my friend and I have a blog called 'Don't Take My Photo' dedicated to these pictures. I've also had it happen during photoshoots when we're taking Good Professional Pictures - like, you could take my business card and get better quality than your iphone???

 

You just need to ask. Most of the time I get really excited, I'll pose, I'll look happy, etc. I love it when kids want to get photos with me. It's really just being polite that makes the difference. 

Re: What Is Something That Really Annoys You..

@ivory I totally get you on the photos thing. I'm not even kidding, but I once had a complete stranger take a photo of me and a few friends when we were posing for a photo my mum was taking. The stranger had their phone up and pointed at us, so rude.
And the escalators! I hate it when people just stand there and block the way. Sometimes, you'll have one person on the right and on the next step, a person on the left and there is no way to slip through them. I hate it on stairs too (and anywhere really), when people are walking waaay too slowly and I can't get past them.

Re: What Is Something That Really Annoys You..

This isn't a pet peeve, so much as a guaranteed way to make me furious. I absolutely cannot stand it when someone not only escapes responsibility for doing something wrong, but actively pins that blame on someone else (without their consent), so that all punishment falls on the scapegoat instead. Like if someone speeds and gets ticketed while they're driving your car, and then unabashedly forces you to pay the bill, because "hey, you can't prove it wasn't you driving, so what are you going to do about it?". Or if your sibling breaks something in the house and says you did it, so you end up getting grounded with chores for a week, while they're free to go out and do whatever they want.

 

The first time this happened to me, I was spitting fire and blood for days. I mean, I get wanting to escape punishment. Being fined or scolded sucks, because it's supposed to suck. But it's one thing to dodge a bullet, and another entirely to drag someone in front of you to use as a human bullet shield. Ugh, I'm getting a bit irritated just thinking about it now. Thankfully it doesn't happen much, but when it does...

Re: What Is Something That Really Annoys You..

@ivory gee that escalator woman must have been running low on empathy that day!

 

Seems like a lot of people want to take your picture! Why is that do you think?

 

I used to busk and it always surprised me how many people wanted to take my picture. Sometimes it used to annoy me a lot because I didn't feel good about my appearance (it's not the kind of job you dress up for too much) and I'd just think - "it's music! Just enjoy the sound and be in the moment, not taking photos!"

Re: What Is Something That Really Annoys You..

I look very colourful/alternative, and so do a lot of my friends, so I can understand WHY people want pictures.... but not why they don't ask -___-
