Hey friends and family. Told y’all I’d be back. While I don’t usually say anything out loud to perpetrators, there are quite a few things people do that make me want to slap someone outside their head.
Loud, Public Cellphone Can’t your lower your voice or go take your call elsewhere? I don’t care to hear you laughing like a hyena, cursing up a storm, or sweet talking to your boo. There are other people in the room. Are we just supposed to act like we don’t hear everything you’re saying?
Two or more people talking to me at the same time One at a time is all I ask. If there are two voices coming at me at the same time I can’t decide who I should be listening to. Also, two multiple voices going at once are bound to get mixed up in my ear, and your message will not sink in for me at all.
People who interrupt We all want to be heard. We all want to have the mic during a conversation. But you can wait your turn. Too often, someone cuts across my words, assuming I’m finished or trying to finish my sentences themselves. If you try to guess what I’m trying to say, 90 percent of the time you’ll be wrong. All I ask is to be patient with me, just as patient as I am with you.
Backseat Driving. If I don’t know where I’m supposed to turn or where the destination is, I will ask you if you’re riding with me. There is no need for you to tell me to turn here or there, or slow down when I’m doing the speed limit. It especially grinds my gears when that person critiquing you doesn’t even have a license, much less a car. Unless I ask or unless we have a near hit, I would appreciate it if you would stop telling me what to do. If it makes you feel better, I always say a prayer before I hit the roads. Who better to let take the wheel than the son of God.
What are your biggest pet peeves? Let me below whenever you get the opportunity. Later. God Bless!
