I love people. I enjoy meeting interesting folks and getting into discussions about everything from Jesus to The Wire to the day’s news. I love how with some people you have an instant connection no matter their race, age, or background. But as much as I love people, sometimes they annoy the hell out of me.
We all have things that get on our nerves. Bad drivers, rude customer service workers, loud neighbors, spotty bus service are just some of the things that will set us off in a quick minute.
But instead of telling someone off who is working your very last nerve, take a moment and vent.
When someone—a student, impatient drivers, or even my momma—tap dances on the last good nerve I have left, I text, tweet, or post an angry little Facebook note. Not only does it keep me from strangling someone, it reminds me that I’m not the only one who has dealt with such foolishness before.
So Clutchettes and Gents, what are some of your biggest pet peeves and how do you deal with them? Sound off
