Have you ever been so annoyed by someone that even the sound of their voice makes you cringe?
You see a missed call, a text or a message on your Aim and you immediately shake your head. Sometimes you wonder why they decided to contact you in the first place; you never return any of their calls anyway. On one hand, you want to be a nice person so you don’t say anything and hope they get the hint. On the other hand, you want to answer the phone and say, “look here buddy, stop calling my phone. I am not the least bit interested.”
Now this person may have never done anything wrong to you, technically, but just the thought of them makes you want to pull out all your hair and run the other direction.
I was on the phone with one of my girlfriends when I got a call from a guy I had been on one date with once last November. Although I never return any of his calls, he can’t help but continue to contact me. I recall another time, I went on one date with a guy and he called/texted me for 7 months afterwards trying to set up date 2. The first time I answered told him that I was not interested. He continued calling hoping I might change my mind and insisting that he only wanted to be my friend. I then answered 2 months later and told him I had a boyfriend. He gave me the same lame line, “we can just be friends.” For another 5 months he called, only to listen to my voicemail or sent me messages telling me to have a great day.
Yeah right! The only time a guy wants to be your friend is when they are hoping you will change your mind.
“I don’t think that would be appropriate,” I said and rushed him off the phone.
He continued contacting me for 5 more months. I guess when 2009 came around, he finally got the hint.
I came to the realization that I may (I don’t know how it would be possible since I’m such a loveable person) have this affect on a guy. He may see my phone number on his caller ID and say, “Damn, she won’t take the hint,” and answer out of pity.
Although I value myself on being attentive to someone's disinterest, I acknowledge the possibility of such an occurrence.
Do you ever think that someone could be annoyed by you?
No one is perfect, remember that...
