Stupid things people do and annoy you

That reminds me of a local botanical garden, which has many narrow walkways. People bring their cameras and tripods to take photos of stunning, unusual blooms and/or family members. At first I feel patient, especially if it seems they are visiting from another country. But you get trapped. Again and again. Then I'll come back an hour later to the stunning plant, because I want to look at it too, and they're still there. Or they spend so much time getting the perfect shot. One day I couldn't take it anymore and even though I saw that someone was trying to video a lizard, I just kept walking. They thought I was rude. Maybe I was but I just couldn't take it anymore. Stop and wait 5 minutes, but multiply that by a couple hundred acres. . .I begin to think they're the rude ones because it's a public place with an enormous number of visitors. When I take photos, I always prioritize others over my photos.

I'm very angry at people who pretend to be celebrities online, and then prey on the mentally ill to get their money.

How do the criminals justify this? They deserve jail time with no computer. I want their photos enlarged on billboards for them to be exposed.

It is low, sickening, to prey on the elderly and the mentally ill.

Thank you for letting me vent.

There are scammers on Twtter, Instagran, etc.

They pretend to be celebrities, like Johhny Depp or Uma Therman. They contact fans and trick them into giving money.

But most of us recognize the scam. We perceive that it is a scam.

But someone with schizophrenia or psychosis believes it is the real celebrity.

The "celebtity" says, donate to my charity, or I want to hire you, and gets their ID to sell or their bank account number from which to steal money.

Ι despise it when some people don't accept or at least respect other's opinion and think they are the only people who have the right to judge something. It is bad when you judge someone else's opinion because you think you know better than him or you think your opinion is better and it's the only truth. Everything is subjective. Relax.

I hate it when people say "'I'm not a racist, but ..." Wink smile

This is so stupid.

But isn't criticizing idiots, a form of racism ? Why shouldn't a human being have the right to be an idiot, could you tell me ? Is he responsible to be an idiot ? I love idiots, they make me feel bright Regular smile

I hate people who talk to me when I'm clearly trying to read a book.

What I might consider stupid might be different from what you do, but I honestly don't put much thought into what others do around me. My rule has always been that if it doesn't affect my life in any shape or form, then I could care less. But are there "stupid" things that people do that might be considered annoying to me? just the one: people who refuse to acknowledge they don't understand something well enough (a nice way of saying they don't know jack sh*t about the subject and their opinion stems solely on their ignorant prejudice) and want to keep arguing with someone who does know what they're talking about (or refusing to admit they're wrong when given the facts). We all make mistakes, no one is perfect and we're constantly learning; even the most educated minds can always learn something new.

I hate people with too high self-confidence which is not within the limits of their capabilities. Also I am very irritated with people who mock the others. Lacking of respect to others annoys me too. And superficial people who don't want to think and see the things in depth.

The French writer Boris Vian once wrote : "Dans la vie, l'essentiel est de porter sur tout des jugements a priori." (In life, the most important thing is to always make 'a priori' judgements). Considering that his humor was rather weird, you might interpret it just as you like.
