Default What makes someone irritating?

Ever have the urge to just slap someone, not they are doing anything wrong particularly they just get under your skin?

So what is it that makes them so bloody irritating?

senior managers who are unable to make a decision without asking their superior for their opinion gets me proper annoyed. these ridiculous puppet managers are everywhere in saudi. nobody is empowered to do anything except stall it seems...no wonder everything takes so bloody long!

usually it appears irrational and instinctual however on further analysis I think that somewhere deep in your psyche your subconscious realises that this person is bad for the human species and therefore needs a good hard slap as a warning. if such warning is not headed, it's perfectly acceptable to deal with the situation by any means necessary...

I always feel an urge to punch someone in the mouth if he walks up to me and says "Hi! I'm Bill Cosby!"

It isn't irritation, it is only the urge developed by looking at the slap-able cheeks...

Where do I start?

With some people even the fact they are breathing makes them annoying.

Totally agree..........

And the smug grin when the shop assistant is giving you bad news:

"I'm sorry, sir [smirk] but we don't have any of that in stock [cheesy grin]....."

Maybe it's an unwanted smartarsededness that grates?

Y'know, the 'couldn't he just keep his trap shut' factor?

The 'Christ, of all the crap he could have been doing at THAT hour he is posting here' coefficient.

The 'Coefficient? What kind of dick does he think he is?' angle.

Y'know.
