People Who Need Annoying People…


Okay…I admit it…some people annoy me…I hate to say it…but…it’s true…and…some people…well…they go way beyond annoyance…all the way to ticking me off…they aggravate me…seemingly delight…in…putting flies in my ointment…getting under my skin…and…tap dancing on my last nerve…

Thankfully…there are very few of those people…and…in all honesty…I haven’t been involved with any of them for a while now…at least not the…really…annoying ones…

I’m not even exactly sure what made me think about it this morning…I was checking email and listening to the radio…so…something sparked my attention…

Regardless…my first response was to whine…why do I have to deal with that kind of people…why can’t my life just be…smooth sailing…only interacting with people who adore me…being fully supported…wherever I go…

When…Bertha’s…eyes stopped rolling like a roulette wheel…she asked me if I remembered the TV show…Bewitched…well of course I did…but what did that have to do with the price of eggs in China…

Further probing…on her part…what did I enjoy most about the show…

Tops on the list…was…Gladys Kravitz…there was just something about…the way she…snooped…meddled…connived…and…just all around made a nuisance of herself…that made the show…funnier…for me…I mean really…how entertaining would the show have been without her…

She went on to talk about…Indiana Jones…how exciting would the movies have been…without an antagonist…or three or four…just some men…digging around in the dirt…

I had to agree…not very…

She finally stopped giving examples…before my eyes started doing the roulette wheel thing…but…her point had been made…

As much as I hate to admit it…those people…have a place in my life…they are almost like fertilizer…they help me grow…sometimes in directions that I hadn’t even thought about before…they help me be clever…thinking of all the things…I wished I’d said…and…just help me be a more well-rounded…person…

I wish…they just weren’t…so…annoying…in the process…geez…

  1. Jane, they’re everywhere, they’re everywhere! I think I may even be one of them. I had been worrying that I had annoyed my neighbor, but she brought over her extra zucchini last night. Then again, maybe that’s my punishment!

    • Peggy…you are so funny…and…although…I hadn’t thought about it this morning…I’m certain I am an annoying person…

      Zucchini…sounds delish…especially…when made into bread…enjoy!

      Thanks for your thoughts this morning!

  2. Jane, you so are so right, and it is so hard to remember that even those that aggravate us are there for a reason…somedays harder than others. I needed to read your post today as I am dealing with something that has me so ticked off the past three days…hard to sit here and smile and not get upset…but after reading your post I am going to sit here and think how does this person, who I just want to tear her apart, how will she actually help me to be a better person? What lesson am I suppose to learn? From that if there is no lesson well than I guess it’s just another bump on the road that will make me more aware of my surroundings and above ALL start listening to my GUT…something the universe keeps sending my way, so I think I need to start listening so that those “lessons” will stop lol….great post once again!

    • Thanks, Rebbekah. Funny how those people show up exactly when we don’t need them…or at least we don’t think we do! I think listening to our gut is vital…I’m learning to trust mine more. Good luck with your situation…you’re already a wonderful person!
