No matter how long I live and how many situations I will get into in my life, there will always be those people who pay absolutely zero attention to what it’s like to be a decent human being.Â And the funny thing is that it’s not terribly difficult to think of others.Â Just try a bit please.Â Just a tad.Â That’s all I ask.
But I tell ya, it really pisses me off when some tasks that are incredibly simple to carry out aren’t.
Here are five common etiquette issues that really piss me off
People Not Saying Thank you when you hold the door open
How hard is this?Â Seriously, is it that difficult to simply say thank you when someone does a nice deed for you?Â I was never asked to hold the door open.Â I didn’t have to hold it open for you.Â And yet you have the complete assholishness as to not at least give me a courtesy for helping you out here?Â Are you always expecting the door to be held open and will you be snotty when it’s NOT held open?Â Next time I see you I’m smashing the door in your face after giving you the impression that I’ll hold it open.
People Not Covering Up when they cough
Sure, just invade my air here.Â No worries about the rest of the humans out here.Â Â If you’re sick, we can be sick right?Â If you cough out snot, no big deal if it gets on my shirt right?Â Give me a break man.Â Just cover your mouth please.Â It’s not hard.
People that smoke and blow smoke in my face
Intentional or not, I think I’m just griping about the fact that I can’t stand smoke from cigarettes.Â However, if you’re a smoker and you see someone coming in your direction it’s really not hard to blow smoke the other way.Â And sometimes when a smoker is in front of me and the smoke comes back to my face?Â Good God I can’t stand that.Â Just smoke in one spot or something.Â Don’t do it while taking a walk with other people around.Â It’s a bad enough habit as it is.
People talking really loud on cell phones
Unless they’re doing something REALLY funny (and 99% of the time they aren’t) then do we really need to hear this?
Over the Top Public Displays of Affection
And unless it’s two unbelievably hot lesbians (which 99.9% of the time it’s not) then do we really need to see this?
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
