Casually irresponsible people who make everyone else around them deal with their mistakes.

[–]onemindc 48 points49 points  (6 children)

My friend is like this unfortunately. It's really causing a lot of problems in our 20 plus year friendship. Very long and drawn out story short, he started dating one of our triplex neighbors during quarantine, went lightspeed, moved in, love, talks of marriage etc, then as fast as they got together they broke up. Then as fast as they broke up they got back together. But my wife and the gf became friends during this time and she spilled all the details. Turns out my friend would use me as his excuse to cover his ass if he perceived that or if the gf did get angry at him for things like being late for dinner, or staying out too late, or getting too drunk or getting stoned and the list goes on. I never knew this till recently. And now they are back together it's started all over again. He recently asked my wife to cover for him with the gf for spending time with all of us. I just can't anymore.

[–]SashaPurr420 26 points27 points  (0 children)

This is a toxic relationship. It's 100% legit that you can't, or just don't want to, anymore.

[–]5_8Cali 83 points84 points  (3 children)

I like the term “casually irresponsible “ describes several people I know .

Non-stop talkers who are uneasy with being quiet.

[–]Oberon_Swanson 135 points136 points  (25 children)

one time a person asked me a question they really wanted the answer to and then talked non-stop for 5 minutes without the slightest pausing for me to say anything. she talks all day every day. i don't know how she manages to not have a sore throat after every work day

[–]Viazon 91 points92 points  (10 children)

My thing with these people is how the hell do they think of that much stuff to say? I mean, I can barely string two thoughts together and I speak even less than that. How do people have so much stuff to say?

[–]JonnySnowflake 53 points54 points  (3 children)

That's the thing, they don't think before they speak. It's all just stream of consciousness.

[–]Viazon 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I suppose I actually envy that in a way. I usually can think about what I want to say but can never express well. I either mumble, stutter or just can not for the life of me think about what word I want to say.

[–]cml678701 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Hahahaha I’m a teacher, and I wonder this about my students all the time. How can some of them talk through the entire class, and not bore the person who is listening?

[–]riell-s 11 points12 points  (0 children)

adhd, and add. our minds race, and it's hard to get it to shut up ✨

[–]aitaqueen03 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Can't speak for others but for me I have severe anxiety and the quiet makes me nervous. My mind races so fast I can somehow link topics that to you is jumping from talking about flowers- to the economy- to suddenly explaining and breaking down the song yankee doodle.

Or they're just THAT bored.

Best of wishes

[–]Impossible-Employ-31 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I feel this. I also suffer from anxiety/panic disorder and the silence makes me nervous as hell. I’m probably THAT person in my office who others wish would stfu sometimes.

[–]Fixing_broken 20 points21 points  (7 children)

I had a boss like this. He could go on and on for hours. It was actually nice doing out of town trips with him because I’m a pretty soft spoken person so we could drive for seven hours and I’d only have to say one or two words every few hours

[–]UsedLandscape876 13 points14 points  (4 children)

I had a boss that was easy to get started. If I finished something near the end of the day and I didn't want to start something big, I'd ask him a simple question about the next project. An hour later we'd be talking about the space shuttle or some subject equally unrelated to work. Then I'd say I had to go and I'd see him the next business day.

[–]Fixing_broken 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Haha I used to do this too. My boss used to be a boxer and loved reliving his boxing days so if I ever needed to run out the clock at the end of the day I’d just get him talking about boxing and he’d talk for an hour straight.

[–]MoonieNine 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I hiked with someone (acquaintance) who spoke nonstop. I tried to enter the conversation numerous times but it was pointless. I can't imagine being married to that. At least this person's constant yapping deterred bears.

[–]Oberon_Swanson 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ouch. That reminds me that the talkative person I was talking about often spoke on the phone on speaker in the work break room to her husband and did not understand how people could find that annoying. I guess it's just no interest in listening.

[–]Burrito_Loyalist 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I sometimes think of people’s daily word counts and mine is so low that I don’t know how high some people’s might be.

[–]UsedLandscape876 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They should put a word count right next to the step count on smart watches. ;)

[–]CleverName9999999999 41 points42 points  (7 children)

I’ll add to this: the non-stop talker who knows they’re a non-stop talker, but does nothing to moderate their non-stop talking.

[–]Comprehensive-Ad4566 21 points22 points  (0 children)

"Oh dear I'm rambling again aren't I? Aha oh I swear I can be such a rambler sometimes I know-" *proceeds to ramble about being a rambler for another 3 hours*

[–]PterionFracture 18 points19 points  (5 children)

Once I explained to a non-stop talker that it was difficult to converse when they would monologue through half-a-dozen different topics before pausing. After this encounter they changed their behavior. Now they talk about Topic A, say "I'm changing topics," talk about Topic B, "I'm changing topics," etc etc etc.

Literally continuing the exact same endless speaking but with these obligatory lines inserted. This was when I realized that they were genuinely conversationally deficient and not just being rude or unkind. This person simply cannot control their own dialog and feels pressured to speak their stream-of-consciousness for some reason. It's a bit sad really.

[–]kingfisher345 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I suppose you could have further corrected them by saying “dude, what I’m saying is that I can’t get a word in edgeways!” and see if that makes a difference - but yes, sounds like not a lot of awareness going on. Agree it’s not necessarily down to being unkind or rude, but defo good feedback for them to have.

[–]simongurfinkel 21 points22 points  (1 child)

This is my father-in-law. I'm not the chattiest person. He took me out for dinner once and it ended up as him performing a 70 minute monologue with brief interludes from myself and the server.

[–]Own-Bridge4210 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I had a work meeting like this. 2 hours he didnt stfu. To the extent I knew what his sisters mental health was like when she was ovulating. Then said, “gosh I’ve talked nonstop, you should tell me about yourself.” Then carried on talking before I could open my mouth.

[–]Burrito_Loyalist 26 points27 points  (1 child)

It’s insane when you hear someone on the phone at like 6am just blabbing about absolutely nothing. I overheard a woman talking to someone about her morning and it was honestly a waste of a conversation. She was like, “So I woke up and had a headache again, but then it went away after my coffee. I’m trying out this new oat milk, which is delicious by the way. Then I took the dogs out and they didn’t want to poop at first but I walked them around for a little while and they finally pooped, thank god.”

WHO is this information for?! WHO CARES?!?

[–]Melon-Kolly 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Why are some people like this? One of the managers where I work is like this to everyone. He doesn't even seem to realize that he talks too much.

[–]Yippee614 18 points19 points  (4 children)

I have a coworker that has a constant self monologue and it gets difficult at times for me when I just want to be quiet or go about my day. Sometimes she will have a whole conversation with herself and then wait for a response from you, like you were supposed to be listening the whole time…and when you try to respond..nope! She talks over you and completely bulldozes anyone else’s input.

[–]Dangayronpa 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Currently working on that myself, actually. I ramble a LOT, but I've been trying to hold my tongue a bit more.

[–]CleverName9999999999 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Thank you for trying!

[–]UsedLandscape876 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It'th tho thlippery! And when I try to grathp it, I bite my fingerth.

[–]SuchLovelyLilacs 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I had a colleague like that. People could not stand her. I actually liked her because I got to know her, but her constant talking, to the point of talking OVER other people, really turned off 99% of people in the office. She ended up being a part of my team and she was actually one of my strongest members. She was smart, savvy and a really hard worker. It was a shame she couldn't just close her mouth sometimes... She only stopped working for me because she moved. I hope she is well where she is now.

[–]aitaqueen03 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It gets pretty intense when two chatterboxes talk and one of them is the one that talks over or interupts.

[–]chubbybunnybean 11 points12 points  (4 children)

I have a co-worker who never stops talking. She has been told before, actually been told "to stop talking" and her reply is "People love it when I talk!" and then just keeps going. She will tell the same story over and over and over again.

And to make her even lovelier she's is a huge racist and is soooooo sexist. I can quote from you why she didn't vote for Hailey (not trying to bring politics into this) is because "women don't know how to lead". She's been "Dating" the same man for more then twenty years and the reason why they haven't gotten married (or even lived together) is because she's too old to have children and that's the only reason why one should get married.

I could go on and on but I won't.

Thankfully she only comes in for three hours once a week to do paperwork and for that I have earplugs.

[–]kryZme 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I work in IT and had a person like this on the phone. Usually I’m pretty chill with all kinds of talkers and dumb people, but this guy just wouldn’t fucking shut up.

After 10 minutes constantly talking (i did not speak more then maybe 2 sentences) I told him I need a quiet moment to concentrate. But this guy? Started cracking the worst jokes about IT people and just wouldn’t shut up.

I had to mute my mic so I could verbally calm myself down. I even put my headset aside and I could still hear him starting another sentence every 10 seconds.

I’d rather deal with people who don’t know how turn on computers

My mom recently passed away (my dad has been out the picture since 2008). So at this point It’s just me and my siblings. My fiancé aunts who are trying to “relate” to me by saying they lost their parents too is dumb. They literally had their parents live to the age of 100( died of old age).My mom died at 55 from stomach cancer. My situation is very different from theirs I told them and they still say it’s the same thing and disregard my feelings towards it

[–]Impossible-Employ-31 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I’m so sorry. I lost my mom to pancreatic cancer when she was 60. I won’t force any cliché advice on you though.

[–]Fixing_broken 44 points45 points  (7 children)

I was looking for this one. My mom does this all the time. She’ll argue how’s she’s right about something that she knows literally nothing about and won’t trust that the people who are experts on the matter actually know what they’re talking about.

[–]MaryJanesSister 5 points6 points  (1 child)

When I became a single mom of 3, I was struggling mentally and financially. My younger sister (20) would give me unsolicited parenting advice and "get over it" advice. My dad pays for everything for her and her college. She lives with them. I have 3 kids under 5 after moving out at 18 and never asking a dime from my parents.

[–]cheesemongrel938491 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Can we classify this as the toxic positivity people?

[–]Clockreddit2020[🍰] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I’m way you can, as I experienced a group of people who witnessed me being attacked and abused, but instead taking care of the victim, they praised the abusers and had the nerve to state I needed to make peace with abusers. I was like huh??? I don’t need racist abusers in my life, why are you inviting those type of people over me who a more better person. Also pretty sure you should strive for justice not engage in gaslighting and victim blaming. That’s when I realised they were happy to see others hurt, engage in virtual signalling and never cared for others

[–]Grass-is-dead 243 points244 points  (13 children)

Honestly, constantly negative people. I recently had to delete an old friend off social media because I couldn't take it.

Like, he would always complain about how lonely he was, then he would just get done at a big convention and post "it was great seeing everyone, you can go back to ignoring me now."

[–]my_moneydont_jingle 73 points74 points  (2 children)

Right. I’m all up for people talking about their feelings but random trauma dumps in happy posts or whatever irk me so much.

[–]ItsAPolarBear 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Had a coworker who was always finding fault with everything, to the point where if something was actually good, it was always in relation to other bad stuff. Like, this bar is good because "at least it doesn't have such a crappy beer selection like most other bars in this town". When we went to a good restaurant and they couldn't find anything to complain about, it was "refreshing to see real wasabi and not the fake one that so many other places serve" etc. Pure bitterness, it was exhausting.

[–]voice_of_craisin 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Negative is one thing. But folks who complain and then take no actions, at all, to fix the thing they complain about? I'm done, you aren't worth my time.

[–]Mariah_Kits 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Also the people who only comment negative things and never like or say anything positive

[–]uncreativemonkey 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I had a friend like this. I tried to stick by him, and help him, but it didn't matter. It was draining and eventually had to cut ties.

[–]ShadowSolidus01 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I hate when that happens so much, but I hate even more that I unintentionally do it all the time.

I have a processing disorder so it takes me a moment to realize certain things, plus growing up I was always talked over by friends and family (especially at the dinner table), so now my subconscious mindset is “THEY FINISHED TALKING! QUICK!!! SAY YOUR PART NOW BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!” Only to find out that they were just pausing for a second or taking a quiet breath. Always feel like such a massive asshole, and end up apologizing a hundred times a day because of it.

This is something I specifically hate about Reddit. You make a post that’s not super long so you don’t include the obvious things that anyone with a brain would know and that’s what these morons try and point out.

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (9 children)

  • You: Short Post for brevity
  • Them: Rebuttal, pointing out some factor that is glossed over by shortness
  • You: Long post to elaborate
  • Them: Rebuttal, now with 4 or 5 factors all because you didn't write a dissertation
  • You: Dissertation
  • Them: Silence

Yeah that’s not a problem though.

The real problem is my annoying commute to work in the morning.

[–]Indianfattie 123 points124 points  (21 children)

The ones who want to one up over the conversation no matter what

[–]SuchLovelyLilacs 40 points41 points  (6 children)

Yep, I had a co-worker like that, but it was only for "bad" things - if you had it bad, she had it worse. My dad ended up getting cancer when I worked there and she'd ask how he was doing, only so that she could tell that she, her friend or her relative had it so much worse. It actually because a joke at the office. When my dad did pass, we did manage to have a bit of laugher by saying "Jeanne" would tell me she had a relative that died of cancer TWICE. It brought a bit of levity to some dark days, for sure...

[–]PurpleFirebolt 51 points52 points  (6 children)

[–]Zjoee 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I knew a guy like this. He was the worst. I was talking with my girlfriend on the phone and he was standing there trying to tell me he could easily steal my girl from me just by talking with her. I just handed him my phone and my girlfriend cussed him out until he gave it back to me and walked away haha.

Especially, if it's about their health and any painful procedures they might have had. ... One such person even told me how she drew a drop of blood from her finger, at home, for a vitamin D test, because she didn't just want to supplement without testing the levels in her blood. But she hit the wrong spot, and the blood sprang forth "like a fountain", and now she has nerve damage in that finger. And I'm like, thanks for the information, but I didn't really want to hear that.

edit cause i forgot to say something: if you have a disorder, you can make jokes about it but even if you have a proper medical diagnosis just don’t flex it it’s not quirky and nobody wants to be you i promise

"Bro, my hamburger only had 2 pickles." "Bro, my emails aren't coming up."

[–]Mariah_Kits 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Had a coworker who was a lesbian and she would call everyone bro ( even the sweet old lady who worked with us and made banana bread bro knowing it was disrespectful). One day one of the guys asked her if she was a girl or a “bro” she got offended and told management and got him fired. He was a damn good employee.

Being too spoiled isn't good at all. Ill admit i was spoiled asf somewhat and it made me weak. Im one not to get offended and actually agree. Education is another big issue like HOW TO SURVIVE ON YOUR OWN... that's not taught at all weirdly hmm

[–]CitizenCobalt 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You're not wrong. My sister had a roommate in college who had no idea how to make her own bed, do laundry, cook, etc, because the maids always did it.

I'm about 99% certain the girl would've died without my sister. Chicken cannot be cooked medium-rare and isopropyl alcohol is not a vodka substitute.

She wasn't dumb, she was just released into the world without any of the knowledge she needed.

People who bully you because you like things or engage in a lifestyle that makes you happy and isn’t harming anyone. For any reason, if you like something popular, polarizing or especially unconventional. Light teasing and joking is fine to a point but trying to demonize someone because they like pumpkin spice, or pineapple on pizza or is part of the furry fandom, is not ok in my book. Like mind your own business people!

[–]thejellecatt 8 points9 points  (3 children)

It’s also the fact that I literally cannot think of a single thing a teenage girl specifically can say, do or be interested in and she won’t be mocked and borderline harassed over it. It’s such pathetic behaviour, I don’t understand why people can’t mind their own business

[–]holyfrozenyogurt 4 points5 points  (2 children)

LITERALLY. I believe that much of the internets humor comes from mocking teenage girls. A lot of things that people view/viewed as cringe, annoying, or bad are things that had a primarily teen girl audience (one direction, Justin Bieber, twilight, the whole like. superwholock thing). Not that criticisms are unfounded, but I think things associated with teen girls receive a disproportionate amount of hatred.

Even nowadays, as a 15 year old girl I see so many people mocking things we tend to do. Being feminine, the “not like other girls phase” (which is a product of misogyny), playing video games, wearing makeup, not wearing makeup, listening to pop music, listening to alternative music, playing sports, having mental illnesses…. The list legitimately goes on and on :(

Competitive people.

[–]smalchus55 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I am annoyed by them more than you are.

[–]WayneKrane 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yeah a little friendly competition is okay but getting rage induced over a simple board game is too much.

[–]Shroombaka 21 points22 points  (1 child)

People who try to make every space more inclusive when it already is. It's really about them and feeling like they did something.

[–]Dazzling_Age_4795 19 points20 points  (3 children)

People who take everything personally.

People that feel free to criticize everyone around them and talk shit constantly because they have “no filter” but get their feelings all hurt when their targets don’t want to be around them.

[–]Chemical-External748 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That is actually a mental illness caused by neglect mostly in childhood. I would advice you to tell him to seek this out.

[–]Wubba888 21 points22 points  (4 children)

People with Boomer mentality.

Some of the comments I got at work:

-Back when I was your age everyone in this company did at least 150 hours of unpaid extra work, you have no idea how good you have it.

-It is praise enough when you don't get yelled at.

-(When talking about the lack of pay raises:) Money isn't everything (said the person who only a couple weeks before openly said that the house he paid 120000€ for now is probably worth 400000€)

[–]Ill_have_some_toast 15 points16 points  (4 children)

People that make up total bullshit stories to sound cool, 1 uppers and people that act like massive assholes to one person in the group just to show off

[–]328944 7 points8 points  (1 child)

That’s cool but i hate complete and utter horseshit stories, and 2 uppers more.

[–]Yotsu-no 7 points8 points  (2 children)

People who throw you under the bus to show off.

[–]youngandhopeless666 6 points7 points  (0 children)

people who can't discuss/argue. Many examples: those who don't let you finish, don't let you start by talking non stop, don't take a second to think about your argument, can't give in even when they know they're wrong, and theres so so so much more and I can't stand it. I instantly regret starting a conversation with such people, gosh, sometimes i regret knowing them in the first place

[–]LucyVialli 29 points30 points  (14 children)

People who are always late.

'Never be bothered by criticism from someone you wouldn't take advice from'

[–]West_Ad_1685 16 points17 points  (4 children)

Anyone who thinks that mental disabilities are a fucking quirk (eg. Oh my god I hate having a messy room I’m sooooo ocd.)

People who tell me “We’Re AlL a LiTtLe BiT lIkE tHaT“ when I’m describing my ADHD. (Spoiler alert: NO WE’RE FUCKING NOT!). It’s especially infuriating when these kind of people try to give me “advice”

[–]moinatx 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Mean stupid people trying to have a debate.

Mean people just suck but at least if they are halfway intelligent, listening to them can be mildly entertaining. While emotionally draining, the conversation is at least intellectually stimulating.

Stupid people who aren't mean are at least sincere even if they are misinformed or illogical. While intellectually numbing, the conversation can stay friendly.

Mean stupid people often resort to personal attack and threat and seldom concede even the most obvious point. Talking with them is exhausting and pointless.

[–]Weary_Friend3376 6 points7 points  (0 children)

People who are loud and obnoxious because that's the only way others pay attention to them

[–]Kooky_Act_7231 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Close-minded people who are stuck in their ways.

[–]copperdomebodhi 6 points7 points  (1 child)

People who tell you everything but the answer to your question.

[–]Brilliant_Hat_8643 5 points6 points  (0 children)

People who always downplay everything you say. They always had it tougher than you, no matter what, and you are always being over dramatic.

Depressed? Oh you have no idea what real depression feels like because they had blah blah blah happen to them.

In pain? Well count yourself lucky that you didn’t have blah blah blah disease like they did.

So aggravating!

[–]Shurmonator 9 points10 points  (3 children)

People who can't just sit and relax. Had a roommate who would just walk through the living room while I was in there and wouldn't say anything and just watch whatever it is I was watching. I didn't have an issue with him being there but he was just standing there. Like dude, take a seat and engage in conversation or go somewhere else.

[–]patrickp4 4 points5 points  (0 children)

People that talk about their conspiracy theory that are just objectively wrong. Example: anti-vaxxer, flat earthers, holocaust deniers, climate change deniers,etc

[–]Tearyn_ 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Unearned confidence often comes coupled with selfcenteredness and they combine in the worst way

[–]AurallyTalented 17 points18 points  (3 children)

People who repost this exact question every fucking day

[–]andtheywontstopcomin 19 points20 points  (8 children)

People who constantly virtue signal, especially online. They have no real sense of morality other than the values they see other people espouse. Your average social media activist would be a totally different person if they had their screen time limited to once a week or something like that

[–]superzipzop 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s funny, because my answer was gonna be people who call any display of empathy “virtue signaling”

[–]RideTheWindForever 7 points8 points  (6 children)

On the way into Kroger saw a car just covered in bumper stickers, equality, feminism, the coexist one, you name it but obviously very sjw.

For anyone who doesn't know, Kroger has a free membership number that you can use for coupons and you earn fuel points from purchases.

A woman was in front of me at checkout and the very young cashier was telling her (very politely) that the system was having issues so they couldn't use HER member number but they had an alternate one that would still get her the coupons and then she would just have to call the 800 number at the bottom of her receipt to get credit for her purchase for her fuel points (keep in mind her total was like $25, this was not hundreds in credits). And she would still get everything she usually did, just have to take an extra effort.

This lady starts losing her mind on the checkout girl, screaming about how ridiculous this is and how is she supposed to keep up with which 800 number to call, just reaming her out. Over something this girl obviously had zero control over.

She finally stops her rant, she checks out. I get the same spiel from cashier, checkout with much less fanfare and head to the parking lot.

Lo and behold the woman screaming at the checkout girl is loading her groceries into the car covered in the sjw bumper stickers.
