I don’t consider myself to be one who is easily annoyed. But I do get that way when I experience one of three things.
My pet peeves.
Sure I have little ones that I can usually just flick off without much trouble but it’s these three that get under my skin big time and cause me to pause or scream. I hate it.
Today, I’m experiencing one that is causing me to pause, be uncomfortable, slightly nervous and a little bit anxious.
Have you ever sensed that a friend is mad at you or upset with something and you have absolutely no idea why? Your attempts to communicate, reach out to them, are met with silence.
It’s happening to me this week. One of my girlfriends that I haven’t spoken with in a while is completely ignoring me. With most of my friends, I wouldn’t give this one second of thought knowing everyone is busy with their own “stuff” and their lack of communication is not in the least bit personal.
So here is where I tell you one of my BIGGEST pet peeves that irks the heck out of me, passive/aggressive people. I cannot read your mind. I don’t know why you would be upset with me because I haven’t really spoken to you in a while.
Or is that it? I haven’t given you much attention over the last few months. If you needed something, my time or attention, would you please just tell me so? Don’t ignore me. Don’t refuse to respond. I find that, in and of itself, rude and unfriendly-like behavior.
I got your point, I think. You’re bent out of shape with me for some reason. I can read into it enough to assume this is the case. That is exactly what I don’t like doing. I don’t like to assume one single thing. I want to know.
Do I call you again tomorrow and make you tell me what the problem is or do I let it ride until I see you over Memorial Day weekend?
God, I hate thinking about this kind of stuff. Total waste of time I could be wasting doing something I really like to do. Instead, I’m bitching about it on my blog!
Some people just have to get over themselves.
Rant over. Damn that took me 10 minutes! 10 minutes I can’t get back now!!!
