Pointless people

August 20, 2007 at 9:10 am (annoying, private personal space)

People annoy me. Ok, not all the time but there are days when I just don’t get the point of people. A few examples this weekend again reminded me why I wouldn’t be sad if I had to sit alone in a room for most of my days.
And dear reader, I kid you not, this in just two days. Just two.

At the cinema: If you’re paying to see a film why the hell do you play around on your cellphone and chat in a dark cinema? Go away. I want to see Homer be dumb without having your annoying voice/light in my space.  

At a mall: Don’t move my stuff out of the way if I’m ahead of you in the queue. Wait your turn. Don’t stand so close to me. And, PLEASE, don’t cough on me while you’re moving my stuff to put your hideously kitsch teddy bear on the counter.

On the road: If you don’t understand the meaning of “safe distance”, let me point out you will fuck into my car if I slip even a centimetre. Do you understand that? When I roll forward to get away from you it does not mean I want to get closer. My car is not some Main Road prozzie looking to get her bum rubbed by you.

In the bakery/restaurant: Lady, what part of I-was-here-first did you not get? I. Was. Here. First. That means you have to wait until I am done before you can be helped. Do not scream at the girl behind the counter because she was helping me. She was doing her job and you, fake tan and all, are a waste of human space. 

At the garage: Is your big-ass, killing-the-environment vehicle trying to compensate for something else, Mister? Don’t bully us little cars just because you’re in a hurry. The pumps aren’t going to run away you now.

    And now we have Hummer coming to South Africa. Just what we need in times of high oil prices, global warming and climate change … a nice gas guzzling “americano” vehicle to stick up your ass on the freeway.

    Keep in mind it’s a spin off of an american military vehicle … anything to do with the US military is laced with blood, anguish and the destruction of innocent peoples lives. All for money and greed.

    Fermit, you don’t even want to get me started on the Hummer. I could go on and on about how ridiculous and dumb it is to have one. Really, if people don’t get the whole global warming thing by now I hope they fry in the blistering sun after nearly being washed away by a freak storm.

    LOL. Had a good laugh at this. Thanks Toby. I SO agree with you. Especially with people in movies. OMG. That really annoys the crap out of me.

    If I wasn’t so thirsty, Gnome, I would’ve emptied my glass of Coke on the kid.

  10. Toby Hanks said,

    Oh no Kash. That’s shocking!

  11. kash99 said,

    Yes, my friend it is THAT bad..it is the reason why we just dont go to movies..jirre but mark is irritating..on one occasion, he was irritating other people so much by talking to me that i went to find another seat…

  12. Toby Hanks said,

    Ha, ha, ha. That’s hilarious. I haven’t ever heard of a girlfriend getting up because her boyfriend was annoying others! I would’ve shouted at him if it were me.
