Little disclaimer, this post is not going to be about crafts, memories, joy or any of those good things. It is going to be one random rant on 5 things that annoy me.
OK as the disclaimer is out of the way let’s get started, in no particular order five this that annoy me and thank goodness at no point people close to me indulge in any of these:
1. SMS Lingo/jargon/slang
sum ppl dnt knw hw 2 wrte – Oh my brain and fingers hurt after writing this. Grrrrr!! to make it worse some people would even use improper case with uppercase and lowercase anywhere and everywhere – it is not only difficult to read it is time consuming and annoying. As I like to reply to anyone who takes pains to write (but why? I don’t have to?…keep reading) I so wish there was some sort of SMS lingo translator!
2. Not replying to text/email/call
While I don’t expect a lot from people (whom I know), it bothers me when they don’t believe in getting back to me, specially when I have asked something. Even if it is a No, I don’t know, I will check and get back to you later – I do appreciate a response – just ignoring the message (when I know they have read it) is rude to me. Is it too much to ask for? Looks like it is time to declutter my friends list – delete/ignore and move on! Less clutter = less time to manage & dust = less gumpf = happy me!
3. People who judge others
Some people pass judgments on others without ever really trying to look at it from the other person’s point of view and on top of it they will start offering you solutions, you should do this, you should try that…hey hey hey did I ask for it?, how much do you know what I situation I am in?
4. Websites with background music
I do most of my shopping online and a chunk of my work involves browsing website (let’s call it research!) I often come across website with background music, what is it are we still in 1990’s? and if that is not enough they will even have videos which play automatically when a page loads. A humble request to web developers, please please please people don’t like music to auto-play when browsing, first of all we all have different tastes in music so chances are high you will get it wrong and secondly music on webpage (of ecommerce website) is not a substitute for music played in store but have different impact while one is loved and aids shopping experience other is just annoying (I have research to prove this – way part of my MBA dissertation)
5. Not turning up on time
I am a very punctual person and I am proud of that, no it’s not anxiety I just like to give myself enough time to get ready and commute to get to an appointment on time. It is understandable when you are late once or twice but please don’t make it a habit, especially when I am paying you for your time…I would like to get what I was promised in terms of time!
Ahhh I feel so much better now …well done if you have made this far!
