Here are the questions:
Are you easily irritated by people? If so what annoys or irks you the most?
This is like asking why we can’t be friends.
Easily irritated? Let us count the ways! As a start, you live too far away. There isn’t even a bus or train in this town. Merely getting to a grocery store is a big deal. There’s no way I’m traveling many miles unless we are already good friends, which we aren’t. Another reason? You won’t like me. Count on it.
Even if I like you, you won’t return the feeling. I talk too much and have a sharp tongue. If you say stupid things, I will snort derisively and won’t take you seriously. If you don’t know any history and worse, you don’t read books, what could we talk about anyway? Do you follow the news? Not minute by minute but overall, at least enough to have a grip on what’s going on in this world we live in?
If you take photographs with trash cans in the background, I will not admire them, even if the subject is your dearest grandchild. She or he would look better — I guarantee it — without a single trash cans. Unless you are making some kind of artistic statement about grandchildren and trash, and I sincerely hope you aren’t.
If you aren’t worried about the planet and can’t understand why I feed birds and squirrels because all those little animals don’t count? I will probably think you don’t count.
To me, the most irritating thing are people who claim to care about the planet and the world, yet do absolutely nothing to improve it. Not even the smallest thing. They contribute nothing and take everything they can. Their level of hypocrisy drives me bonkers.
So, I am not everyone’s cuppa tea. Sometimes, I’m not even my own cuppa tea. Actually, I’m not all that fond of tea. This probably makes me a bad person especially because with the hot dry weather, we not going to be able to afford coffee much longer.
Meanwhile, coffee anyone? How about a cookie?
