I don’t care how much of a people person one might claim to be, I am willing to bet there are people in your life; at home, at work, at school or at a business you frequent that you simply can not stand. I am not a people person so my list is lengthy.
My latest pet peeve is laughers. Sure it’s nice to hear the joy in a good occasional laugh, but I frequent a place where there is one woman who laughs are reminiscent of the sound of Flipper. Worse yet, they are non stop. It is like hearing a television from a different room. You can’t see the show, but you can hear the canned laughter erupt every five seconds.
When ever I visit this place I can hear this woman, never fail. Every five seconds Flipper comes to life. What could possibly be that funny? How can her co-workers stand it? My interactions there are brief and I’m ready to wield a hatchet and hack up cubicles and their contents until there is silence. I mean, damn…
One good thing is that it makes me appreciate the silence when I leave, but Flipper is now in my head.
