Trolls who think they're better than you just because you're different than them. And it really pisses me off when they call someone else a troll after someone calls them out on their behavior, which happened to me last night.

Someone calling me a computer expert. Just because I'm under 50 years old doesn't mean I'm a wizard with computers. It may not be an ISTP thing, but that's mine and I'm an ISTP.

When some old bitch gets it into her head that I'm her friend, and that I want to be kept in the loop on every fucking detail of her life. I don't know how this happens, but it does. I've always been a magnet for these people and they're extremely difficult to shake off, like disgusting parasites.

The latest one is by far the worst I've ever had to deal with. Sometimes all I can do is stand in amazement at how much she rambles on. It's always about herself and her own problems, never a thought for mine (she doesn't even know anything about me because she's never asked). She jumps from one boring tangent to the next without so much as a breath between them, often going around in circles to join up with previous topics so she can repeat the same shit all over again, for good measure. She can keep this up for several hours at a time and when I say I have to go, she just keeps talking.

Fortunately she'll be moving to a different town in a couple of months, so I'll be able to ignore her calls without having to worry about her showing up at my house. I hope I can resist the urge to murder her until then.

:laughing: Did you let someone from the internet irritate you, or you call people trolls "in real life"? How did this argument go? Can I get a link to laugh? I love e-fights.
Alleged troll: You're different. You are a troll!
You: No. Nun un!
Alleged troll: Yes you are.
You: Nope. I am not! You are!
Alleged troll: No. You Are so! Not me! I said it first!
You: *flustered and angry, goes to bed upset*

He thought he was better then me because my beliefs differed from his. And the argument was on SodaHead.

Edit: He resorted to insults and accusations/assumptions cause he couldn't prove his claims.

When people refuse to take responsibility for their actions.
When people make the same mistakes over and over again even after watching someone do the same thing before they go and do it.
When people cant use their eyes to see the answer that is right in front of them.
When people ignore reality and believe nothing is wrong.
When people spout off their problems or complain about every little thing.
When people cant accept the fact that no matter what they do or try will have no effect on what it is that they want to change.

Oh my fucking god, I hate people like that. Anybody who just talks to me non-stop about anything and everything, as if I give a rats ass. Never even shuts up long enough for me to get any word in edge wise. Was at work and this new guy just got hired, and I made the mistake of actually talking to him a little bit on break one time, he took that as I cared what he had to say about everything. And I use to hate it when the boss would have him working with me. Most of the time I would even try to make it look as if I was not that interested in what he was saying, and just doing the halfass polite thing of going 'yeah..', 'hmmm hmmm', 'right' at appropriate times just to feign that I was listening. Huge mistake.

Anyways I started getting really irritated by him and eventually just started walking away from every single time he came by, and just told him I was working and had shit to do. If it wasnt at work, or somewhere else where I would have to see the person every single day, then I would tell em I dont care and dont feel like talking then just continue on and ignore them. Sucks when its at work though, just that much harder to get rid of them without it getting around somehow that you're cold/rude.




When people try to show me pictures of their children. Sure if I was a kidnapper it might be useful to know what they look like, but since I am not I have absolutely no interest in your kids. Had this girl at work, she was pregnant for a while and then went on leave when she was getting close to being due, when she came back she was showing everybody pics of her baby. Well we were in the back and I was gettin my shit together getting ready to start work and she started to pull out her wallet and asked me if I wanted to see pics of her kid, and I jsut gave her a very simple and flat 'no, im good'. She didnt show any signs of taking it the wrong way, but I still always expect that and feel awkward afterwards, but whatev.

Exactly... it always starts off inoccuously, where you think you're just being polite to a newcomer... except they're thinking it's because you're absolutely fascinated with them. And they don't know what introversion is, so they assume that because you don't say much, it means you're hanging on their every word. ...Goddamn freaks.

And IRL I only deal with people in a cooperative way, like if there's something they can do for me in exchange for something I can do for them... so these "friendships" gain momentum on what is nothing to me but a practical arrangement. As you said... big mistake. I have to get better at screening people, before I make the mistake of even saying hello.

I hate ignorance. But I hate it even more when people spread ignorance. I know a girl who doesn't know what a cervix nor a uterus is, nor why she bleeds during her period. AND she was telling people that if you pee after sex that you can't get pregnant.

General immaturity really.

Minor pet peeves:
I seek precision and it annoys me when others do not.
I hate when people do the "I want you to talk to me but I am not going to call for your attention, I'm just going to make sigh noises until you talk to me."
I strongly dislike it when others talk to themselves at just high enough of a level** for me to think they are talking to me and I have to stop what I am doing either in my head or hands and wait to be told that they were just talking to themselves.
** There's the I am talking normally level and the temporary I'm calling for someone level. They border just at the I'm calling for someone level.

@Era @Roland787

wouldnt it be easier and less annoying to you to just be direct with the person? I dont see how they will ever get the point if you arent telling them.

LOL i had no idea there were certain levels for talking to oneself. Also i am curious at the age of the girl.

No, it's impossible to reason with people like that. If they had an ounce of objectivity, they'd be able to see for themselves how inconsiderate their behavior is. When you inform them of it, they simply don't understand what you're saying and then there's a huge song and dance about it as they try to convince themselves of their utter blamelessness. It always ends up generating more discussion, not less.

I speak from experience.

if you want to annoy me, question my decisions, autonomy, or thought process.

That, and not to mention the fact that in some cases you are stuck seeing this person day to day at work. And being one who was already non-social (although not unfriendly) and avoiding of people, to come out and tell somebody to practically shut up, especially somebody who went around and talked to everybody about everybody, then it would have just come across as me being rude/cold/anti-social. To me the easiest thing to do was just start outright ignoring the person and start walking away everytime he came by.
