Who do you know that annoys you to no end?

Okay, it's a lame title, but my ramblings went on and kind of morphed, until I realized I was complaining about one person in specific. It doesn't really enter my mind until I have to be here at work and deal with her. It's partly my fault for being cordial and talking to her.. lately I've been trying not to. Feel free to breeze by my thread, but this is just today, and a few other random elements from knowing her.

I work with this girl who isn't the bible thumping type, but apparently is a lot more religious than I thought. I realize I can't take her as a general example or religion though.. she's also very racist. I brought up to her for some reason that Christ probably wasn't born on December 25th, and she got all defensive, asking where I heard that and all. I told her originally I had heard it from a college teacher. Her response was "Your college professor was probably a Jew." That baffled me a bit, as I saw no corrolation between the two sides. So I deceided to Google it, and came upon this http://www.ucgstp.org/lit/gn/gn008/gn008f03.htm right off the bat. I found it interesting, and printed it out for her to read. She hasn't looked at it yet in depth, but then asked me if I ever attended church in an accusatory tone of voice. I asked if she ever attended school, and then asked what the point of her question was. Of course I didn't get an answer. But I told her I went to Bible school.

Admittingly, I purposefully pushed her buttons earlier though after reading the thread here about whites being a genetic mutation, and told her basically just that, and she goes "We were here first, God's white." I told her that's because the typical image of God was created by white males. Her response to that was "I'm not arguing about this." I didn't think it was an argument.

This, today, coming from a girl who wears pants that say "bootylicious" on the ass, had her first of four kids when she was 14, and uses the word "them" anytime she talks about multiples of something (i.e.: "them people"). I've corrected her a handful of times, and she just says she graduated school, she can say what she wants. (actually, I think she got a G.E.D.).

She also curses non-stop, complains to customers about what she gets paid and cheats (or cheated, I don't know about that anymore) on her husband who was in jail at some point in time for something violent.

Sorry for the rambling, it was just time I blew it off, and what better place to do it than here?

I know someone who is really annoying. I don't want to name names, but it starts with a "G" and ends with an "o" and has an "ouch" in the middle.

Here is my list (so far....and in no particular order)

1. Young firls who wear sexualized clothing (halter tops at age 8, booty shorts on 12 yr olds, etc)

2. Shitty drivers in FL. Pretty much everyone driving is a shitty driver.

3. This lady in my program. She is opinionated, bossy, prickly, and talks down to people younger than her (she is in her late 30's or early 40's) She is constantly negative and she feels like everyone needs to know her opinion and she pretty much dismisses anything that doesn't agree with her position. Oh, and for the record....you aren't suppose to get hammered at social events in front of peers and faculty! (At least at events that happen mid-week when everyone else is having maybe 1 or 2 drinks)

4. The French. (ok...that is an old joke )

Well, you can tell her that Christ definitely wasn't born on Dec. 25th...the celebration on the 25th actually comes from the Roman holiday Saturnalia that was celebrated from Dec. 17th - Dec. 25th. It was a pegan holiday...conjection is that the Christians made Christmas on the same day to try and "snuff out" the Roman holiday. The Romans also came up with the Christmas Tree before the Christians did. They cut down evergreens to pay homage to the god Saturn. They exchanged gifts on Saturnalia as well. So tell your friend to put that in her pipe and smoke it.

Clearly you are making that up because you hate Christians.

You know who annoys me? Jesus. "Oooh, look at me -- I'm too good to go swimming. I'm just gonna walk - on - water."



And the whole loaves and fishes thing? Show off. "Oooh, I just wanted to point out how awful it is that there's not enough food... I think we all know who to blame for that, now, don't we? It sure is a good thing that there's everyone's favorite personal messiah around!"

And then he gets crucified, and it's just whine, whine, whine, me, me, me.

Y'know, originally I was going to post something about a debate over belief vs. history, but then it just turned into me complaining about the girl I work with! The reason it's mostly religious sounding is just because that's what it was today with her. Well, and just a little bit ago I can back up front and she was complaining about having to get a book for a gift exchange, and saying "who wants to read a book?" Reminds me of Bill Hicks talking about eating at a waffle house and reading a book while there...
(paraphrasing)
The waitress comes up to me and asks "Whatcho readin' for?" Not what am I readING. What am I reading for. "Well gosh, you've stumped me. I've never been asked that before. I've never really thought about it, but I guess the main reason I read is so that I don't end up being a fucking waffle waitress. Yeah, that's got to be pretty high on the list."

I know, I know.. sometimes I just ask for it.

Oh, did I mention she has a confederate flag flying outside her house? She was upset when someone stole it.. but it's since been replaced. Oh, and that she lives on the outskirts of Detroit?

And you passd up a perfectly good retort, such as, "I think Jesus was a Jew also, because I'm pretty certain there were no Christians around before he was born."

And you call yourself an otter...

Buzz-zing!

I have a lady in my grad school classes who will spend the majority of any class period with her back to the instructor, looking at everyone else in the room. When she does decide to make a comment, she'll take over a conversation by making the first thing she says on-topic, then she'll go off on a tangent about some personal story or delimma. And this is in a class of 30+ people!

A wife of one of my friends is also obnoxious. Her family comes from a part of town that many people look down on (which is bullshit, btw) and I think she's really defensive about it. Whenever she is around people from my neighborhood she always introduces herself as "I'm Soandso, I'm from one of the wealthiest families in Suchandsuch County." Then she'll spend the rest of the evening talking about how people from my "county" look down on her and how they're all stupid. Nice. (if you know the Kansas City metro area, you can probably figure this out)

But the most annoying people in the world are Christians who act like they're oppressed in the U.S.

Okay, I call bullshit. I understand how a tree makes sense in the context of the son of God being incarnated on this plane of existence, but how the hell does a tree honor a god associated with the earth and harvest?

To be fair, people from Johnson County are <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richest_counties_in_the_United_States#100_highest-income_counties_by_median_household_income">rich assholes</a>.

Though to be fair, I never have called myself an otter. I suppose I'll have to work harder if I want to earn it.

That sounds like it needs more elaboration! Or would doing so cause this thread to be moved to the Adult forum?

And could I make up bonus points for otterdom by being the first to say: "pics?"

Nothing quite so exciting, unfortunately. She just does things like go through my drawers (not those kind!) without asking to find a pair of socks to wear. I'm also pretty sure she has looked around in my bedroom closet.

In other news, she smokes pot, which I really don't care about but I have asked her to not smoke it in my apartment because I don't like it. I have also asked my brother to reinforce the issue with her. So what does she do? The next day, she goes into the restroom to smoke, turns on the exhaust fan and blows smoke out the restroom window. I gave my brother one last chance to put her in check, before I threw her out and the problem wasn't repeated.

She is also extremely passive aggressive which drives me up the wall but I tolerate out of respect for my brother and since I only have to interact with her a couple of times a year.
