Meanness. As an Irishman, if you don't offer to buy a drink you are seriously outside of normal behaviour. I Know an Irish guy who's worth 50million, was dating a Spannish guy who was an ordinary joe. He was flown first class to NYC regularly and given every comfort. One day my friend said he had to break up with his Spannish guy, cos even after flying to NYC, if they went into a Starbucks, the guy wouldn't offer to buy the coffees.

Lack of boundaries and respect for others' personal space. I once had a roommate who, within the first day of moving in, rearranged everything in the living room and then opened my closed bedroom door and looked around for aspirin, despite having been told to never go in there unless invited.

People who ask intrusive, personal questions and then PERSIST when you give them a general or vague answer.

The persisting is actually the problem. Anyone can mindlessly or nervously ask a personal question in an attempt to make conversation. It's the people who double down and persist with the probing questions trying to extract personal information that I find rude and aggressive and instantly dislike.

Agree with all of the above. In addition:

Anyone who expects me to be impressed by their car. Cars can be beautiful things. But unless it's a classic you've restored yourself, it's just a way of getting from point A to point B.

Showing up underdressed for business or formal occasions. It's a clear message of "fuck you" to the host/hostess/other guests and I don't need or appreciate it.

Overt snobbery about food/drink/etc. I appreciate good food and drink. But sometimes a meal is just a meal. You're in a diner in Tuckahoe at 3 in the fucking AM. Deal with it.

If you are gay and call yourself A-list or if you are straight and call yourself Alpha, you are not and you are also not worth my time.

There are commonplace questions, such as "what do you do for a living"? , or "what part of town do you live in?" Those are perfectly fine. But when people ask you if you're married and you say, "no" and they do a follow up of "why not?' that's an intrusive question. Or if they start playing twenty questions to give them a fix on your age, that's intrusive. Or asking how much money you make, or why you don't go to church. These are just things that strangers have no business asking.

I would only smoke 1-2 cigs while drinking out at the bars.

She was also trying to lose weight and would eat my food, so I’d buy all kinds of delectable desserts as well.

In addition to some people being nosy and obnoxious, self-help books also contribute to some people asking too many personal questions immediately upon meeting someone.

Self-help books should be amended to clarify: 1. If someone gives you a general answer, that means they don't want to discuss it! No need to keep prying, it's rude and will not help you make friends. 2. You are not Barbara Walters or a reporter and you do not have the right to "interview" someone with a bunch of probing questions. The person is not a celebrity and did not agree to an interview with you! 3. Keep your questions general, you do not need to know if a person you just met leases their vehicle or if they own or rent their home.

That reminds me, R64, I was walking on Christopher Street many years ago on a weekday fall afternoon. I had just gotten a great massage (no release, alas) from a spa down the street. This old guy was looking in a shop window, while his little dog had walked a few feet down the street and was sniffing a hydrant. The dog was on one of those reel leashes that can go for many feet. Basically, the dog had walked about 10 feet away from the guy and lease was making the street impassable. I walked up to the guy and nicely and all smiley said, Hi, (he turns and starts to smile) the lease is blocking the sidewalk. His face instantly turned to a scowl and in a very fem voice, snarled, "Oh, go fuck yourself!!!" I couldn't help it, I burst out laughing.

“Like” every third word.

“LITERALLY!” when they mean figuratively.

SSHHHtrong instead of strong. (This is a thing with broadcasters now.) No such thing as an S- sound .. it’s always an SH-sound. Why did this happen? And why is everyone copying it?

Pepole who don't recognize sarcasm and pretend to be threatened.

Poor diction.

People who take a general comment personally. Nobody was talking about you, toots.

People who take AGES to back into parking spaces in lots near busy roads. Cars waiting end up spilling out onto the road. So dangerous. If they can't back in to the spot smoothly and quickly, they need to perfect their skills in quiet parking lots until they can. Also, people who take ages to back out of parking spots. If it's that fucking scary for them, they can walk or catch a bus.

People who do the speed limit in the right line in Australia. Do that in the left lane and leave the right lane for people overtaking.

R29, I'm with you on that. If someone fat has taken the initiative to go to a gym, then he's trying to deal with the problem and deserves the dignity of being welcomed. It also takes courage to go to a gym when you're 20+ pounds overweight.

R33, respectfully disagree on the questions about what you do for a living and where you live. Espevially for people of modest occupation and circumstances, these can seem like status-searching questions--i.e., are you on my level? I get instant cringe when asked these questions. Even when I had a higher-status job, it bugged me. Just let that information come out naturally in conversation. No need to specifically ask.

R48, I think people do that instead of earbuds because they're afraid the earbuds will expose them to greater amounts of radiation from the cell phone. Earbuds, rightly or wrongly. are perceived as a health risk. The idea is that the earbuds provide a direct path of cell-phone radiation to the brain.

1. People who are rude to waiters or sales clerks. I don’t understand having a chip on your shoulder towards people who are trying to help you.

2. If someone declines an invitation for Christmas dinner, asking them 10 more times isn’t going to make it any more appealing. It’s nagging. As I told one neighbor after her she refused to let the topic die, “‘No’ means no. Whether it’s about sex or a holiday dinner. As a woman you should know that and respect it.”

[quote]Strangers who interrupt me or try to talk to me when I am wearing my earbuds. The main reason I’m wearing them on the street or at the gym is because I don’t want to be bothered. Invasion of personal space and asking personal/too many questions are also at the top of my list.

Someone may be trying to get your attention in order to save your life, you fool. But you just go ahead and ignore them; no skin off their back, however the next music you hear could be a dirge.

someone you just met and they ask invasive and personal questions...

are you rich? how much do you make a year? This person was a friend of a friend and a whore from Serbia who is obviously trying to land a rich man, too bad she can't tell I'm gay.

When they do the agent look - seeing if there is someone else they could be talking to as they talk to you.

People who speak in the third person. I don’t need to hear anything else, they’re assholes.

People who drive the speed limit in the #1 lane.

by Anonymousreply 135June 3, 2024 5:37 AM

R135, in general, people who drive slower than the flow of traffic in any lane but the right lane. If the average speed is 65, I don't care what the speed limit is, you should keep up. It's dangerous to force everyone to go around you.

But then there are the people who tailgate even when there's traffic ahead. I can't go any faster than the car in front of me, so get off my ass.

by Anonymousreply 136June 3, 2024 8:00 AM

R136, sometimes people think because they're doing the limit, that they can be in the fast lane. But if they accelerate really slowly and everyone is using the left lane to pass them, they need to pay attention, speed up or ship out. Often when I pass cars like this, the driver is talking and using their left hand to make gestures. People like this need to get off the road!
