It Bugs Me When

  • Celebrities have nannies.  I know, it seems strange for me to think that they shouldn’t have them.  After all, these are people who spend so much time in the public eye just to keep their jobs.  I just think that people who have kids should actually be the ones raising them.  There might be a few situations where it would be okay, i.e. if Octomom wants anyone to raise her kids, then it should definitely be someone else.  There are others where I just get confused about why these people procreated.
  • People have an “I’m better/busier/etc. than you” attitude.  I get that everyone has some level of difficulty in their life, but there is a certain point where people just have to get over it.  No one is better than anyone else.  In an ideal society, there would be no queen bees or head bitches in charge or anything like that.  I know that we don’t have an ideal society, but I still hate the whole entitled attitude.  Entitled attitude tends to go along with people who have no clue what the rest of the world is going through.
  • People are allowed to behave a certain way because of some social more.  For example, the youth is allowed levels of ignorance thing.  If you’re old enough to have an opinion or act up in some socially destructive way, then you’re probably going to be old enough to deal with the repercussions.  Another example is the whole, respecting someone who is older because they are older.  Sometimes older people suck.  Some of them don’t behave well.  Some of them are complete assholes.  If a person is an asshole, they shouldn’t be told that they are the sweetest person in the world and that you think the world of their opinion.  Doing that encourages further stupidity.
  • People don’t realize just how bad they sound.  I have known people who will say things that are completely unacceptable and they will turn around and say that they didn’t say it.  Some folks will even say this when the proof is right before their eyes.
  • People will take some form of criticism and make it sound like a weird compliment.  Some people seem to have some narcissistic view of themselves and make flaws sound like the greatest compliment that a person could have ever given them.
