English 3 People and Their Annoying Habits Misty 1/30/00 Have you ever noticed that some people do things that make you want to scream, and when you tell them to stop, they didnt even realize that they were doing it? Or maybe you tell them to stop and they say something like, I cant help it, its a habit. Well, I have and I am going to discuss the different situations and different ways people are annoying. Such as in the classroom at school and with friends, or while giving a speech or even when meeting new people. People can be annoying whether in a large group or just watching people, but these are a few places and atmospheres that I have noticed the most frequent annoyances. When in a large group such as at school, or with a group of peers, I often notice many things that people do that I find down right annoying. Usually they are not doing it to purposely get on my nerves but nonetheless, it does.
Is the classroom the most common place for annoying people? If you think no, read on and you will see why I think it is. Sometimes when sitting in class I hear this little tapping noise, after awhile my mind gets used to it I guess, then I do not really pay any attention to it. Then, the tapping becomes louder and faster, I look around the room, to see someone playing the drums with their pencils! I make eye contact and receive an innocent, What? I have failed to understand this response. Why do they think I am glaring at them? Could it be that I am trying to learn and they are playing Wild Thing with their pencils ? If I am not being serenaded by a pencil drummer, I am being shaken to death by someone who is shaking their leg under the table. Do they not realize that neither I nor anyone else can read or write Friends are very special people in our lives but that does not mean that they are free from annoying habits. When hanging around with friends day in and day out, you begin to notice the annoying things that they do. Ever notice how your friends are telling a little secret, and start to wonder if it could be about you? Mission accomplished. It may or may not be about you but nine times out of ten, they are trying to make you feel self-conscious.
How is love to influence our lives? Love-struck people do crazy things to express how they care for that particular person yet it is a long and windy road to these actions. It is down this path that experience spawns and trouble and happiness are felt.

It really isnt a hurtful thing as much as it is annoying. Another annoying thing I have noticed about friends, is when you greet them somewhere, they casually look at what you are wearing and observe the brands. I am thinking, My gosh, if you want to know that bad just ask, its not like I cant see you breaking your neck to see what kind of jeans I have on! These are little things that some people have grown up doing but it doesnt mean you dont want to There are also times when a person is alone or with only a few people like when giving a speech, and they do annoying things. Such as when someone is in front of the class, sometimes they stu-stu-stutter and I just want to say, Hey there, calm down and take a few breaths. Now, talk slow and calm. But, that would not be all that nice, so I dont. Or maybe they repeat words, like, uh, or um a lot.
I am sure these are only signs of apprehension but are still very annoying. Sometimes they are giving a speech with a friend or a group of peers and they argue. It is the same scenario every time, It is your turn, No it isnt, Yes it is! Meanwhile the audience is bored out of their minds. Usually they are given at least a week to get ready for this, so why cant they just be organized and at least not fight when they get up there? Another annoyance, although not a large one, takes place when meeting new people. The main thing is that sometimes people act different than normal, which I never understood. Sometimes when girls meet boys, they change their voice, or act like they are a bimbo when in fact, they are not. Why cant they be themselves? The guy is going to catch on eventually. Or when a guy meets a new girl, sometimes he will try to act all macho and mean, when in fact he is a nice guy.
A Coin To ssI suppose one could say there are two sides to every coin. The coin being myself, I know that this statement is true. Although I am a person of many different characteristics, I basically boil down to the person I am and the person I hope to be. What is the goal, I ask myself. So many people strive to be so many things. For some the aim is money, beauty, security, power, influence; who ...
Another thing I have noticed is something that both girls and boys are guilty of. That is when they meet someone new and pretend not to really like someone or pretend they are not there, simply to make themselves look better. Cruel? Definitely. Whether someone is playing drums with their pencil, shaking like a leaf on the wind, or putting the dis on a friend, to boost themself, annoying is annoying and if people could just work on these things, I think that would have some impact on their social standings. Some people do not realize that by being annoying they can actually build up tension in the people around them. I cannot say that I am not guilty of tapping or telling an occasional secret in front of someone, but I try my best not to be annoying and it really is not all that difficult.
