Sometimes Drive Us Crazy
can't believe the things they do!
people ever annoyed you or gotten on your nerves
because of something they did? Whether it's
something big or something small, people's actions
can create hassles for us.
cut in line upset me.
Chen from Taiwan
am ticked off when I am asleep at midnight and the
telephone rings. Sometimes, I am too tired to fall
asleep. Finally, just when I fall asleep, the
telephone rings suddenly and interrups my sleep. It
upsets me because I have to fall asleep again. I
will not be full of vigor and vitality the next
day, so it really irks
things annoy me.
Dale from Colombia
are some things that I hate. I hate when people are
late, or, when they keep me waiting for a long
time, or they don't show up. I also hate when the
phone rings at midnight and wakes me up. I hate
when someone calls me for nothing and talks about
who cut in line drive me crazy.
Limin from China
hate people to cut in line when I check out. I
think that people who cut in line are selfish. They
are always concerned about themselves and never
respect others. In my opinion, those who like to
cut in line are not able to arrange their time
appropriately. Usually they are absent-minded
people who do not do things in an orderly way.
Consequently, when they remember to do something,
they always rush in and out and forget people
around them. I think people with this kind of
behavior will not have good friends. In China, we
always say that if you don't respect others, they
will not respect you.
things annoy me.
Seok Kim from Korea
be honest, many things make me angry. For example,
it ticks me off when I have to study and somebody
makes noise. I can't stand it if I get caught in a
traffic jam when I need to go somewhere very
urgently. What annoys me most is when young people
behave impolitely to older people. For example,
when I took an class recently, I saw a teenager
behave impolitely to my teacher in the class. It
wasn't that I couldn't imagine that. I know it
depends on each person, but sometimes I can't stand
that younger people don't respect older
calls are annoying.
Angel from Colombia
are a few things that annoy me. One of those is
when someone calls me on Saturday or Sunday morning
and the call is not important. This ticks me off
because I love to sleep, and Saturday and Sunday
are the only days that I can sleep late.
ticks me off? My noisy neighbours.
Volante from Venezuela
of the time, I listen to people arguing late at
night. Those people are my neighbours. They had a
little dog that barked all the time, and sometimes
I couldn't concentrate to do my homework.
Fortunately the dog is not there anymore. Normally,
on weekends at 7:00 in the morning I can't sleep
because I can hear some children upstairs running
all over the place making a lot of
things tire our patience.
Pauperio from Brazil
small things that should not happen really tire our
patience.One of these things that really bothers me
is impolite people in supermarkets or in stores.
They do their jobs like they are doing a big favor
for the customers. They should realize that it is
our shopping that is going to pay their salaries.
My point is that we go shopping because we have our
needs and sometimes we are tired and concerned
about problems. The last thing we need is strangers
being rude to us when we are trying to be polite.
The worst is that I keep thinking I should answer
in the same way, but I'm glad I resist and do not
behave like these
behavior irks me.
Goksel from Turkey
I went to the library at the hospital. It was very
crowded, but I found a seat and sat down. The man
who sat down next to me was talking to someone
loudly. He bothered another man because his book
was torn by another man's carelessness. Everybody
looked at them, but they wern't ashamed. Such
inconsiderate behavior usually irks
