My Annoyances

Published February 2, 2015 by Amplio Recorrido

I decided to write a list of things that annoy me. These are my own individual annoyances and not everyone will agree with them so here we go.

#1 – People who pretend to be someone they are clearly not. Example: I absolutely cannot stand people who pretend to be a different race, smarter than they really are, richer than they really are or part of a group just to fit in.

#2 – People who use their advantages to snob others. Example: Someone who is much better off than someone else putting on a smile but you know it’s fake. You know that inside they believe they are better because, they have more.

#3 – People who are loud in public. Example: Every single time I go to a store like Walmart for instance, there’s always someone in the store or in the parking lot who is yelling and making all kinds of noise. Seriously? I’m not talking about kids, we’ll get to that later but I am talking about, adults who cannot seem to control their self in public.

#4 – Random strangers who try to parent your kids. Example: I was in the grocery store a few months ago and I have a toddler who has Autism. I know and everyone who knows him knows, he cannot control himself or his emotions and it has nothing to do with my parenting or lack of. My son is making all kinds of noise and he’s being loud about it. He has two things working against him, he’s a toddler and he’s autistic. So anyway, this woman turns around at me and she says “If you cannot control your kid, perhaps you should consider giving him up for adoption instead of disturbing the rest of us”. I became quite angry and I said “Lady, you should probably mind your own business before I end up in handcuffs and you end up in the morgue. My son has Autism and he cannot control his behavior and neither can I”. She became quite angry but, walked away and said nothing else.

#5 – People who judge my husband simply because he’s Hispanic. Example: I have had multiple people say that he needs to go back to Mexico and he needs to stop depleting the system and he needs to take himself and all of his Mexican friends back with him. That sets me off really fast because for one thing, My husband has never lived in Mexico, he’s not from Mexico, he doesn’t speak with a Spanish accent and he’s the most American Mexican you could ever meet. I absolutely cannot stand when Gringo’s (white people) who have a racist attitude towards Mexican’s open their mouth because it’s nothing but ignorance coming out.

#6 – Speaking of Mexican’s, I hate it when people assume that Mexican’s are here illegally and don’t deserve to be in this country and that they should all speak English claiming it’s the “Official Language of the United States”. First of all, Many of the states now known as the United States were owned, created and taken care of by Mexican’s long before people from England who brought English with them came to the United States. There’s a little thing called the Mexican American war in which many Mexican’s lost their land and were bordered off into the remainder of Mexico. Despite what history books say, Christopher Columbus was not the 1st to discover the United States. The Native American’s who spoke many different dialects of their languages primarily Navajo and Kituwah, did not know any English as people from England had not arrived yet. Mexican’s spoke their native language Spanish long before English came along. There’s too much ignorance going on to even comprehend. So many people are hyped up claiming it’s “Their country” and “English is the only language”. That’s absolutely insane. The people “immigrants” from England who finally came over much later and brought English with them did not bother to learn Spanish, Navajo or any other language that was being spoken. They came in, took over and claimed the land for their self. Is that fair?

#7 – Assuming that all people who are on Food Stamps or Welfare are lazy, low life, drug users. Wrong. That’s another of the biggest form of ignorance there could be. First off, close to 75% of people on any of the government programs including Food Stamps have worked many hours in their lifetime and have paid their taxes which go to these programs. The majority remainder of those folks are people who are disabled or retired. A tiny percentage of those people are depleting the system and are lazy, low life drug users. Grouping that small percentage as being a whole group is just plain ignorant.

#8 – People who drive up against the center divider line on the road. In the first place, it’s dangerous because your side view mirror could easily graze their side view mirror and you end up side swiping that person particularly if, two people are driving up against the center dividing line, one in each lane.

#9 – People who write vague Facebook statuses. Example: I can’t believe this happened to me. Then of course you have the “Friends” who say things like “Is everything okay?”, “PM Me”. That’s incredibly annoying and shows that they only want attention.

#10 – People who throw everything they have ever done for you in your face. Most people know someone like this. Usually, you have someone who say you borrow $20 from and regardless of whether you pay them back or not, you will never hear the end of all of the things they have done for you. Sometimes, people can remember the entire time that they have known you and likely have a large notebook filled with dates, times and what they did for you. There’s no purpose in this, people like that are simply arrogant assholes who choose to be in control at all times. Those are the people that you would rather chew your arm off than to ask for help from.
