On the morning of June 28th, 2014, I was sat on an uncomfortable chair on a huge plane waiting to take off. It was going to be a long flight from England to Minnesota, so I decided to try and get some sleep. As I was about to fall asleep, there was vibration in my chair that didn’t stop. Suddenly, I realized that the person behind me was kicking my chair. It was very evident that I was going to get no sleep and that it would be a very long 9 hours. It was in that moment that I found out that there are certain behaviors that really annoy me. Two of these are people kicking my chair and people pushing others of the way in the hallways.
First, I find people kicking my chair, especially at school, extremely agitating. This is because it vibrates my chair while I am trying to work and write. This makes my handwriting very sloppy, which could lead to the teacher not being able to read my work. Having to make the teacher work that hard to try and read my paper is not something that I want to happen and definitely not if it puts my grade in jeopardy. In addition, I am also a little bit of a neat freak so my work and notes looking messy makes me very panicked and stressed out. Also, I find it hard to study from notes that are not neat. This means that if they are messy, I end up rewriting them, which wastes time that could be spent doing something more productive.
Another thing that makes me annoyed is people pushing others out of the way in the hallways. I find this not only annoying but extremely rude and uncalled for. Most people do it so that they can get to their classes faster, but while they are saving themselves time, they are they are putting other people at risk of getting injured or just simply making them feel like they aren’t as important as the other person. Furthermore, people often feel like they don’t belong or that they are invisible. If someone already struggles with self-confidence like this, adding to the problem by pushing them out of the way is inconsiderate. I don’t think that other people should make anyone else feel insignificant just because it conveniences them. It also shows a lack of respect for the people around them which makes them look arrogant. That is a quality that most people don’t like to be around and can be interpreted as being a bad person.
To conclude, there are a lot of habits and behaviors that really get on my nerves but people kicking my chair and people pushing others out of the way in the hallway are my top two. I think that these things could be avoided if everyone thought about how their actions would make others feel. This would mean that the world as a whole would be a lot kinder because people wouldn’t consciously hurt other people to make things better for themselves. Overall, small things like that annoy me the most because it is just people having a lack of respect and awareness for the people around them.
