Top 18 Most Annoying Types of People (Part 1)

Humans are social animals. This means that we have to live both as individuals and as members of a group. Sometimes, however, we just find ourselves not getting along well with some types of people. No matter how much we try, we find it extremely difficult to like some people for reasons ranging from little nasty habits to utter viciousness.

Throughout the day, we encounter countless types of people. While some are truly delightful, others are just plain vexatious. They may be our friends or family but there are just something we love to hate about them. Here are the top 18 most annoying types of people we encounter everyday.

18. THE WIZARDING GUARDS

I don’t know about other countries, but here in the Philippines, we have a lot of security guards who really do magic. What am I talking about? Well, these guards are those stationed at the entrance to the mall or train station. What’s really magical is they just point their “wands” to your bag, a little flick and voila! You’re bomb-free!

And when something happens, like a bombing or something, the management claims they perform security measures thoroughly. Thoroughly, my ass.

17. THE INDECISIVE ONES

Don’t get me wrong, I’m also one heck of an indecisive guy but not when it comes to frivolous things. I love my friends but when it’s time to eat out, I hate them.

Me: So where are we having lunch?
Friend 1: You decide. I’m ok anywhere.
Friend 2: Me, too.
Me: Aright, Kenny Rogers.
Friends: Eeeeh. I don’t like their food there.
Me: Sbarro.
Friends: It’s too costly. And I’m not in the mood for pasta.
Me: Food Court.
Friends: The place stinks. And too crowded.
Me: KFC.
Friends: Again?! We’re always there. And don’t say McDo.
Me: Well, you decide!
Friend 1: No, you decide. I’m OK anywhere.
Friend 2: Me, too.

Gaaaaaaawd. Why are these people my frieeends?! Why me, why meee?!

16. THE ‘CHANGELESS’ CASHIERS

Remember this post? I just hate it when cashiers tell me they have no change and ask persistently if I have a smaller bill. Ask once, it’s okay. But when I tell you I don’t have a smaller bill, it means I don’t.

Cashier: Do you have a smaller bill, sir.
Me: I’m sorry, I don’t.
Cashier: Really, sir? Because I don’t have change, sir.
Me: Really. I don’t.
Cashier: But sir, I don’t have change.

Why in the world does that have to become my problem when I’m the customer? And as Odin said, “What’s even worse is after you had that annoying conversation, after you’ve gone all trough your pockets and dug inside your bags and the cashier finally gives up, she would then open some sort of secret compartment or pull out a bag from under somewhere. Turns out she had change after all!”

15. THE MOONWALKERS

Rush hour. Everyone hurries to where they are going. For example, from the train station to your office. But the pavement is just too narrow. You’re in a damn hurry but there’s a couple in front of you. The couple — holding hands, taking their time walking. Two things you wanna do: Either you push them aside or just sing “Ave Maria” because you just feel like you’re in a damn procession.

Come on, people. if you wanna walk slowly, romancing each other, go to Luneta.

And no, I’m not being bitter. Haha.

14. THE SAVAGES

It’s okay to drink as long as you can handle it. But when my friends (or other people) start puking their way to the restroom leaving a trail of unsavory meals on the floor, I just want to leave right away. It’s just mortifying.

And then there are some people who just spit anywhere. As in ANYWHERE. On the pavement. In the parking lot. At the MRT station. Inside the mall. Gosh, why do they have to be so uncivilized? They have to know that there is a new invention today that scientists call “restroom.”

13. THE LINE WEASELS

Have you ever experienced falling in line patiently and then suddenly, someone cuts in front of you in line? It sure happened to me as narrated in this post.

Line weasels are especially irritating if these inconsiderate individuals have a shopping cart-full of junk while you are in a hurry, holding a can of coke. Line weasels are selfish people who do not respect the right and time of others.

If you are really running out of time or chasing something and you really need to be served within the next 10 seconds, ask the people in line to let you cut in. For sure, someone with a good heart would let you. What is getting to people’s nerves is the idea that these weasels act as if they are not aware that there is a line or they just couldn’t care less.

12. THE MOVIE TALKERS

Have you ever been to the theatre and just when the movie starts, someone makes a lot of noise you pray to God that he/she dies for 100 minutes and resurrects when the movie is over? Movie watching is like a sacred activity for many people (including myself). We watch movies to escape the real world, be entertained and relax. But how can you relax when there is someone sitting behind you who coughs or blows his damn nose like there is no tomorrow?

Another irritating people inside the theatre are parents who just can’t control their kids who cry and ask a million questions. There are also those who answer their cellphones and talk loudly. And then, there’s a group of friends who are talking about how hot their new classmate is while the film is rolling. Add those people who talk to the screen as if they are heard by the characters and reacts exaggeratedly to scenes. Put them together in one theatre and your movie-watching nightmare is complete.

11. THE GREEDY DRIVERS

Be it a taxi driver who collects more than what is flashed on his meter, or a jeepney driver who “forgets” to give you your change, or a trike driver in a strange land who doubles the fare, greedy drivers never fail to irk me.

I usually give drivers a generous tip. But whenever they ask for or impose some more before I even make the initiative, I just forget about generosity altogether and give them the exact amount they should be receiving in the first place.

The top 10 will be posted soon.

  • http://www.antipatica.org/wp/ Eina

    Hahaha, I feel guilty cause I’ve been #16 at times. We really do have change, we just intend not to use it because it’s our last stock and we might need it in case we get short when we count the money lol. But I just give smaller change, which I think is more annoying LOL.

    I walk through moonwalkers, because really, so annoying. I sometimes yell “Excuse me!” and run pass by them. Rude, I know, but I was going to be late, haha.

    on the other hand, there are overzealous guards who can be even more annoying. one time, we went inside national bookstore and my friend had a book with her that was old, like with yellowed pages already old and the guard wouldn’t let us leave because he thought we were shoplifting it. hello?

    more irritating than line weasels: their friends or the cowardly/oblivious person who lets them cut in line. erg.

    haha, i like your list…obvious ba? my list (and hopefully the rest of yours) would include strangers who have no concept of personal space, seat hoggers, lazy asses who pretend they’re blind/deaf when you’re trying to pay in jeepneys, people who park in handicapped spaces, parents who buy those shoes with wheels for their children and let them loose in malls…haha, that’s all i can think of now

    Regarding “Movie Talkers”

    I also had an experience while my sister and I went to watch Harry Potter, then there’s this couple who kept talking about the movie and the book… F*cking spoilers, you think you know everything!

  • Selene

    Can we include the “pasosyal” people? I have encountered one time wherein a friend of a friend invited us to Starbucks. We thought he just wanted to have coffee or buy a frappe, so we tagged along. I was first in line to the cashier and I ordered a frappe. Before I was able to say “To go..” (I don’t normally stay/hang around at Starbucks), he butted in and said “Dine in”. I stared at him open mouthed, tried to compose myself and just smiled at the cashier. Turns out, he just wanted to hang out at Starbucks because it makes him feel “conyo” and he really didn’t buy anything. He just sat with us while we were finishing our beverages, and he just bitched around, commenting on how other people looks like, their clothes, etc. It was really a 2-hour hell for me. :(

  • Lina

    WOW! I hate those same annoying people!!! WT…??? Re: the people who can’t make decisions. I work with 2, and one in particular will make the whole table sit at a restaurant while she rereads the menu… and says intermitantly: umm, ummm. PATHETIC. seriously, how hard is it? to make a damn decision? Sorry, I’m a little angry thinking abou it. But it’s no only with that, it’s with EVERYTHING. Literally. Do you want to use the blue pen or the red pen.. um um um um um… I have no tolerance for it. Thanks for posting. I don’t feel annoyed alone anymore.
