irritation

I don't think I've ever mentioned here that I'm quite an irritable person by nature. Since we are talking about this..I think its only fair that I tell everyone that I'm actually quite an irritating person myself. Yes..it is genetic. ( and yes..that's the only excuse I can think of at the moment.)

Of late, there are a few things that seem to be irritating the hell out of me!

For one..there's the elevator. Don't get me wrong, anything that doesn't require me to move my butt anymore than it has to, is a certified blessing in my book, but have you ever ridden in an elevator that talks more than you and all the other people you know put together! In India (I'm not sure if there's this phenomenon of talking elevators in other countries as well) we have these elevators which find it absolutely necessary to tell you to shut its gates, every time you get in or out of it!! Forget that it tells you that..what is really pissing off is the fact that it repeats the same sentence in three different languages!! I mean, now, I even find myself contemplating walking up 6 flights of stairs just so I can avoid that irritating voice. that's how bad it is!

Another thing that's starting to irritate me are happy people. Not all happy people..just the weird souls who put on their smiles early in the morning. I, for the record am in no way a morning person. Truth to be told..people who are happy and chirpy in the mornings ruin my entire day. At home, its a known fact that I will not make conversation until after a hour after I've woken up. In college however, all my friends happen to have plastered smiles instead of faces. Aren't smiles supposed to spread joy?! Sadly..at 8 in the morning, this does zilch for me.

More when i can keep my eyes open. As much as I want to enlighten you on the daily annoyances of my life, my fingers are itching to click on the 'Publish' button....so here goes.........!!!

When I was in high school there was this girl that rode my school bus and whom I'd ALWAYS run into in the halls that was always really freakin' cheerful. I HATED it, and I HATED her. But then I got to know her a bit the next year as I realized that I couldn't avoid her very easily and she turned out to be pretty decent.

I haven't really encountered talking elevators but yea, there are trains like that. The Delhi Metro for instance keeps giving you instructions in Hindi and English. If I travel in it like 2 more times, I could easily do the instructions instead of the automated voices. Solution can be that you stuff cotton in your ears?

I'm really grumpy in the morning too. Hell I'm grumpy all day sometimes. I can't see how somebody who studies his books for 16 hours a day smile. They aren't human I believe. It's just some wrong "smile" command executed in the brain.

you know what?
happy people irritate me too...
this junior of mine in MA, from another dept, seemed to possess this never ending supply of cheeriness which ALWAYS got me! I don't know how he managed it, my univ was by far the shittiest place to study in EVER! and then here was this absolutely happy character... I don't know how some people do it...
I like being happy ok... but not all the time.. like some people like being...

Blogger Adorable Pancreas had this to say:

Talking elevator? Oh, that sounds so irritating.

I don't know whether I'm a morning person or not, since I don't usually get up until the morning has passed. What I can be sure I'm not is an afternoon person.

Blogger Irreversibly Screwed had this to say:

oh i had to call the elevator company and have them send over someone to stop that irritating voice that echoed into the small elevator in my house...
and mornings are not my power hours either.. all i can think about most mornings is the comfort of my bed.. and the only times i feel happy or smiley in the morning is if i didnt sleep at all the previous night so i dont feel the need to hit snooze..
