Sometimes I can be a bitch. Seriously.

I get so irritated by people and the things they do.

Sometimes (most of the time) it’s not even their fault. Or there’s no reason for me to be annoyed by it. But I still get so frustrated.

I wish I could be more laid back about some of these things. But here are some things that people do that irk me to the core…

things people do that annoy me

Things people do that annoy me

Coming out of a junction

Pesky humans, why are they doing this to me? When I’m in traffic, usually late for work, and there’s a car trying to get out of a junction. I should be a nice member of society and let them out. But no, I remain bitter, get as close as I can to the car in front of me, avoid eye contact and drive on.

Not letting me out of a junction

As above, but in reverse. When I’m wanting to come out of a junction LET ME OUT PLEASE. PLEASE.

I sometimes even wind the window down, take off my sunglasses and GLARE at them to make them feel the guilt.

Why can’t I have it both ways?

Holding the door open for me when I’m not quite there yet

Oh the pressure! Someone is there, with the door open and you feel like you’re forced to walk faster to get through the said do to avoid the kind person waiting longer than they have to.

It’s awkward.

Asking me ‘how are you?’

This frustrates me for two reasons:

1: My answer is usually TIRED AND HUNGRY and it makes me feel boring and predictable to say that.

2: I then have to ask them ‘how are you?’ and run the risk of being trapped in a conversation I don’t want to be in.

Humans in the gym changing rooms

I need to take a #gymselfie in the full-length mirror and can’t. Because they’re there. Being all.. human and stuff.

Get out.

Offering me a sweet

I want the sweet. I want it so bad. But I say no because I feel awkward.

Then I feel like I’ve missed out.

Random people

Okay, I actually like random people. But what I don’t like is people that refer to themselves as being random.

IT’S OHHHH SO CLICHEEEEeeeeegoijsogosjogjsjiojsorfgd.s

People that text with the sound on their keyboard

CLICK CLICK CLICK.  You know you can silence that, right?

When people don’t laugh at my jokes

Hey, I’m funny. and so misunderstood.

When people think they’re so misunderstood

It’s like being random. Everyone thinks they’re misunderstood. And random. And don’t fit in. And are like.. super deep.

People tell me what to do

I think the most common thing I say to my boss is ‘why are you always trying to tell me what to do’.

I just want to do the opposite. He has started taking two painkillers an hour before one-2-ones with me in an attempt to cope.

Even if it’s your job to tell me what to do, I still don’t want to do it. I have regular arguments with my sat-nav.

What ridiculous things annoy you about humankind?



  1. The most annoying thing is when people tell you what to do,
    I know.. I feel like I’m a robot when I already know what I’m doing and it feels like you’re less appreciated.

    Have a great day, Corinne!

  2. Haha this post was hilarious! I really enjoyed reading it! On the subject of drivers, I hate it when I’m a pedestrian crossing a busy road which might also be a junction, and I have to run to get across safely because a car will come out of nowhere when I think it’s clear and not bother to slow down (the Highway Code States that you should give way to any pedestrians who are crossing your path) it’s like, so you’re okay with possibly hitting me then?!

    Another thing that irks me about humans (and I don’t really know why) is when you’re on a bus or train with plenty of free seats and they choose to stand anyway and make the place look untidy. Continuing from people who say they’re random (I used to be one of those people…the shame) I dislike people who say they’re so quirky or people who just generally try to act like a special snowflake about things.

    1. *Forgot to mention as well: if the driver who comes out of nowhere is also NOT SIGNALLING. Not signalling drives me up the wall (pun unintended) xx

  3. The sweet comment made me laugh haha! Also SO true about the doors. I get annnoyed at loads of little things… Like when strangers on the bus make really loud noises or comments to themselves because they want you to talk to them but you’re enjoying your nice quiet time with your music. THANKS but no thanks. #StrangerDanger

  4. Slow walkers – people who take up the whole pavement walking in a massive group at about 0.2mph when you’re in a rush and you don’t want to push but you sort of awkwardly walk behind them.

  5. I also HATE being told what to do, especially by someone who is younger than me. It irritates the life out of me. Also when people say they are random. crazy etc. It’s just UGH. You know? Very funny relatable post!

  6. LOL this is to funny and I hate traffic and when someone cut me off without a signal oh boy that takes me to another level.

  7. I’M SORRY!

    I am one of those people who hold the door and make you walk fast and feel awkward! I know I’m doing it and I really don’t mean to, but I always think what if I hold it a little, but not long enough for you to reach the door then let it go in your face? What if I misjudge how fast your walking/your distance from the door and let it go in your face?

    It’s difficult!!

  8. Hahah! I love this! I am a ball of rage most of the time so I wouldnt even get started on a list for fear of being here all day longgggg

  9. I feel your pain, the clicking when texting drives me mad too.Travelling on the tube in london the following seriously annoys me, the person who doesn’t use headphones, oh yes I love listening to your crapy music, so glad that you are inflicting it on me. Last week had a man that sat sprayed deodorant, if that wasn’t bad enough air freshened his shoes. Seriously in a carriage with no free air Lucy x

  10. holding the door while I’m not there yet HAHAH this happened to me like a million times! So rushed indeed just to get to the door 😛

  11. LMAO! I think this is definitely one of my top 3 favourite posts from you, Corinne! LOL! Completely with you on the text with keyboard sound, drives me up the bloody wall!

  12. I love this post! I’m also one of those people who holds open the door haha… I just don’t want people to think I’m a bitch if I don’t! But it is always awkward when people have to run to get it. I also agree with both of the junction things- it’s kinda like when you overtake someone because they’re going too slow for you and it’s so annoying, but then when YOU get overtaken you’re like “whoa there, slow down, what’s the rush?!” I get that a LOT!

  13. Such an awesome post! I cannot stand how people on cell phones, texting with the clicking noise! Doesnt that get on their nerves?! My personal fav, when you’re getting in a vehicle to clearly “go somewhere”&someone will always ask, “yall going somewhere?!”

  14. People walk too slowly drive me mad. Even if I can walk round them it still drives me mad. As do all of the things you have mentioned and probably a load more which I can’t think of right now- I am easily irritated!

  15. I do not like people telling me what to either, and I so feel that pressure when people hold the door open for me when I’m still a few steps away.

  16. you always have such thought-provoking posts!!

    I get annoyed of the “how are you” BS as well.. I usually just say “good” if someone asks and I don’t ask in return. I mean really, I don’t care how they are, so why should I ask?

    as for junctions.. here in America, there are traffic lights by the Junction when there’s a lot of traffic. people cannot read to save their lives.. when I’m running late, I want people to follow directions. if it says “2 cars per green light”, that means I expect two cars to go every time! but no, people are so stupid, they take a yellow light to mean “stop.” it doesn’t mean stop!!! grr…

  17. Haha Corinne this post made me giggle! I HATE it when people refer to themselves as ‘random’ too- grrr! Everyone is random. I hate noisy eaters and people who have really strong mouth noises when they talk. It grosses me out

  18. The people who think they’re super deep, or super random – THEY ARE ANNOYING AS HELL! Like, you’re not special so shut up. Hahaha I know what you mean by all the annoying people everywhere who really aren’t meaning to be annoying but their presence just is.

  19. I can relate to so many of these! Especially the door opening one. It’s so frustrating. It’s the same when someone is showing you around somewhere and they walk up the stairs really fast and then wait for you at the top….I’m sorry I’m not fit enough to be right behind you every step of the way! I hate it at work too when we’re in the kitchen and people are under your feet and they apologise every time they turn around and notice they get in my way. Just shut up and get on with it already!!!

    Thanks for this post as I’ve been able to rant without feeling guilty 😛
