12 types of ASKHOLES you encounter in your life daily
Been there and been that; no regrets so far, but since the clock’s ticking and there are a lot of ‘uncomfortable’ people and situations to deal with these days – steering clear from ASKHOLES, makes life easier.
ASKHOLES are funny people to be around with at times. Every circle has one or two or maybe more; we love to hate them and hate to love them – sometimes we cannot do without them. They get on our nerves and can ruin our mornings, or maybe steal the night snooze as well and show no gratitude at all – we are amongst them all.
You may laugh and chuckle at the 12 signs of being friends with askholes, but hey, that’s what they are all about and sometimes we are them too.
Without much ado, here are the 12 askholes you shouldn’t be;
The lecture is almost over and yet you have one of them raising their hands to question; while you desperately want to run of the room – it seems their own voice turns them on and they want everyone around to praise them for their ‘smartness’.
Don’t you just hate it when one of them simply asks the same question over and over again – irrespective of the same answer coming back to them, every single time?
From failed love stories to the world conspiring against them, the askhole in question seems to have issues about everyone and everything around – wouldn’t listen to your advice, but would come back with the same story to tell, AGAIN.
The ‘Do-I-Look-Fat’ question can irk many brains around; especially when the answer is but to obvious and they have done just what you’ve asked them not to do – binge in unhealthy eating habits and lifestyles.
You told them not to do something; they did it nevertheless and the price to pay is high. ‘Why Me – Why Me’ and the ranting goes on – need we say more!
So your BFF knows that her beau is cheating on her; denial is the name of the game for the lass. “But he says he loves me” is the rebuttal for every thing you advise her on, against him! The next moment she texts “He’s an a$#@, I caught him do this” – the same evening “We both decided to get tattoos of each others names on our hands”. Should we facepalm or should we go ‘head-into-the-wall’?
You tell them something to be wary off or not to do at the moment; they do it or indulge in it anyways – “I should have listened to you”, the reply seems so candid when they come back to you for emotional succour.
Wouldn’t care if you lose your job by bunking work for them that day, but would ask you to help with something ‘urgent’ nevertheless – they’d not allow you to touch or do a thing when present at the venue; in that case, “Why did you call me?”
Fighting for social causes or standing up for equal rights; kudos to you, we are in for the same – but having it done just your way without hearing the group out; Grrrr, why did you ask us for opinions then?
“I am my own confident individual and I care less about who thinks what about me” – heard your friends saying this a million times? So have we, but they would come back and ask you the same question again “Why do they hate me?” or “Do I need to change myself?”
“I am happy as I am, as what I am and with whatever little I have”, say many in our circle of friends and family members. “How is it that I didn’t get to make so much and she did?” – such comparison thieves are always around and your answer to them would be the same – STOP COMPARING!
“My resolution is to lose weight in 2015”, “I would like to be happier”, “I want to buy a new home”, and the list can go on. Such people may or may not exist in your circle, but for sure they wouldn’t get up their behinds to manifest their dreams. In the end they would crib, whine and lament on another year wasted – even though you showed them a million ways on how to do it!
Have you spotted the ASKHOLE in your circle, or are you ONE – let’s not judge. Nevertheless, we hope you liked this post, as much as we loved compiling the 12 stalwarts for you. Tell us, Oh please tell us if you liked us!
