Pathetically Annoying Things Wednesday


For those of you who have read my blog for awhile now I’m sure the title of this post doesn’t surprise you in the least.  If it does, then you’re obviously not spending enough time reading my posts.

I should point out that it’s not that I’m trying to be negative here, I’m just helping you get to know me a little more than you already do by sharing a few of my innermost thoughts and feelings. 

As I share these thoughts, the more you get to know me and the deeper you delve into my mind.  The deeper you delve into my mind, the more you’re trapped in my twisted, pathetic world.  And that…is all part of my evil diabolical plan.  

(insert evil-plan laugh here)

Okay…in reality I’m not smart enough to have a evil diabolical plan, so you have nothing to worry about; but I still want to share a few things that annoy me…

Things like…


Sitting next to a passenger on a plane that doesn’t want to talk during the flight. 

Yeah, I hate it when I’m on a plane and the person sitting next to me doesn’t want to talk to me.  Talking on a flight makes the time fly by (no pun intended).  Since I can be an extrovert when I need to be (according to Myers-Briggs I’m an introvert), I enjoy the time spent asking people about their lives and sharing stories about mine.  So it’s clearly annoying when someone decides that the hour-long trip should be suffered in silence. 

Just a word to the wise…if you ever end up sitting next to me on a plane…TALK TO ME…otherwise I’ll be annoyed with you the entire flight and afterward you’ll end up being a blog topic of pathetic proportions!   

Seeing or hearing the words, “love, love, love“.  

‘Love’ is already a really strong word so it doesn’t need to be repeated. 

We all get it.  You really, really, really love something or someone; so you feel it necessary to say or write the words repeatedly to stress your deep feelings.  However…it’s annoying, annoying, annoying as hell!  I hope, hope, hope that you’re getting my point because it’s pathetic, pathetic, pathetic!

British people hosting American TV shows.

I don’t know how the brits feel about Americans hosting tv shows in their country, maybe a few of you from Great Britain can shed some light on that topic, but I’m annoyed with British people hosting American television shows. 

I don’t know why it annoys me so much, but it does.  However, Gordon Ramsay is the only exception.  I like his ‘in your face’ style and his accent isn’t as annoying as say…Cat DeeleyEvery time I hear that woman speak it makes my skin crawl. 

Dating a pretentious woman who doesn’t know she’s pretentious. 

I’ve dated a number of women over the years, and I seem to be attracted to the ones who are pretentious and don’t know it.  If you’re not familiar with the term, which most people aren’t, it means that someone is attempting to show or communicate the unpleasant quality of being more impressive, successful, or important than they really are.

In a nut shell, pretentious people aren’t humble when they describe what they have done or are doing in life.  They brag  … a lot …  and when they brag, they do it in a manner that seems to hide their pretentious personality.  Their words come out smooth and silky but have an undertone of fancy-pants hyperbole. 

These are the women who talk a lot about absolutely nothing and have very little to actually share with me about the person beneath the person who’s hiding under all the layers of pretentious crap spewing from their mouths. 

I just want a down to earth gal…someone who I can go to a movie with and spend the evening talking to on a human level…oh…and maybe get a back massage at the end of the evening.   Is that too much to ask? 

The Geico Gecko and Progressive’s FLO.

I would give a very inappropriate hug to anyone who would end the reign of pathetic that these two characters have on my television. 

Personally, I hope that someone runs over that stupid Gecko, and Flo gets fired.  I know it’s a brand thing with all the marketing and whatnot, but honestly, when I see Flo…I don’t think of insurance, and I definitely don’t think of Progressive.  I think of changing the channel as quickly as my brain will allow my fingers to press the button on the remote.

And if they need further proof that Progressive’s marketing isn’t working very well, I had to Google “flo” to find out what company she represents.  How pathetic is that?

I know! … I know!  … I know! … 

All the things I listed are pathetic, but that’s the theme of my blog, so you should be used to it by now.

If you’re up to it, feel free to share what annoys you in the section for mooing.  I’m sure it’s just as pathetic as the things I listed.

  1. Oh, you make me laugh! Pretentious women…yes right there with you and boy have I had my fill. As a woman, let me apologize for the poor excuse that compensates for our insecurity. Hope you find yourself and nice humble movie going gal. And yes, a back massage is a quite acceptable request. 😉

    • 🙂 I’m happy to hear that I made you laugh. We need that in this world of hard work, depression and doubt. lol…okay, maybe it’s not all that bad, but some days are worse than others.

      I appreciate your comments and the apology. I don’t take it personally when I hear the pretentious words…I usually just let them talk and then smile and nod a lot. I try to give them a month to settle in and be normal…but a few weeks into the relationship I realize they aren’t changing and this is going to be their personality for the long haul, and that’s a deal breaker for me. Can you pass the word onto your single female friends that being pretentious isn’t a good thing? 🙂 lol … Down to earth is more attractive.

  2. I’m pretty outgoing but I am that girl who does not want to chat with my neighbor during a flight. What irks me, is when people don’t pick up on the clear signal of my nose being stuck in a book. I read so that I don’t focus on the fact that I’m flying through the air in a tin can. I hate flying.

    • LOL…I love sitting next to people like yourself! It makes my flight more enjoyable knowing that I’ve pulled you out of your book and talked you through something you don’t enjoy. 😉 lol.

  3. I love, love, love Flo! LOL! Come on, she’s funny! And when it comes to talking to people on airplanes, it depends on who sits next to me. If you’re nice, don’t smell funny, not a close talker and attempt to respect the rules of small airplane seat boundaries, then we can talk. I sat next to a woman on a plane once and she kept leaning over into my seat area to talk to me, and her breath was so terrible I thought I was going to be sick. It was a rough two hours!

    • ugh…that would be a horrible plane ride especially for two hours!! I think I’d have to say something if that ever happened to me. I’ve been blessed on my trips thus far…but ugh…I can’t even imagine.

      And please, the ‘LOVE LOVE LOVE’ has to GO GO GO away. …sigh…

  4. What do you mean by Americans hosting British TV shows? The Gordon Ramsey shows began in the U.K. (I’m American, and my husband is English. Generally speaking, the UK has better TV shows than the United States – quality over quantity.)

  5. Our local supermarket has a polite notice at the checkout asking customers not to build “goods mountains”, i.e. not to stack stuff eight levels high on the checkout belt. Fair enough.

    Some people take this simple request to the logical extreme, placing everything on the belt in a single file, ultra straight, line. One. After. The. Other. No matter how much space it wastes.

    To aggravate sensible people even more, these lunatics actually arrange all their stuff on the belt so that the bar codes are all pointing the same way, towards the scanner.

    I want to grab them by the collar and remind them that blind obedience as an excuse didn’t wash at Nuremberg, and work work now, either…

  6. When people tell me something and then ask, “do you know what I mean?”
    The last flight I was on a few years ago, after initial pleasantries and 30 minutes of silence, I turned to the guy and said, “I’m sure glad you’re sitting next to me, don’t you hate it when people have you trapped on a plane and want to talk about their kids and grand kids?” He and I chatted for the next 3 hours. It was great.

  7. One of my greatest peeves is people who sit next to me in any form transportation and act like we need to talk to each other about our lives. I mean, I sympathize that they’re bored and in silence and whatnot, but me… I have voices a plenty in my head… And trust me no one wants any part in that conversation. >.>

    Bottom line, we better not sit together on a plane. 😛

  8. I hate to be called “sweetie” by receptionists, salespeople, check out person at supermarket. It is beyond annoying. BTW, in keeping with not being a “sweetie” I won’t talk to you during flight either.
