What type of person gets underneath your skin? Several types of people are infuriating to deal with in life. Here are the top 12. Do you agree?
1. People Who Are Inconsiderate
Inconsiderate people are the worst to put up with. Some common examples include littering, not picking up and disposing of dog droppings, and not returning your shopping cart.
2. People Who Lack Awareness
People with zero conception of the world around them are challenging to handle. They walk slowly, stop in the middle of walkways, hold up traffic to chat with friends, and slowly push their cart while blocking most of the aisle.
3. People Who Are Entitled
Entitled people are some of the worst. These folks have a “The customer is always right” mentality and frequently want to speak to the manager.
4. People Who Base Their Opinions as Facts
YES! This is pretty much the entire internet at this point. The audacity of people to argue about something in a field where someone with two degrees works every day. But check out any comment section. People do it. Good luck having a conversation with them. They never open their minds up to different perspectives of things because they believe they are always right.
5. People With Victim Mentality
It’s one thing to vent and get frustrated easily or have many legitimate problems causing frustration. However, never having a plan for how to handle their issues, or never moving forward or challenging the obstacles in their way? It’s challenging to be around. “If you tell two people, you’re just venting. If you tell four or more, you’re looking for attention.”
6. People Who “Tell It Like It Is”
In other words, people who have no filter of respect, care, concern, or consideration for other people’s feelings. They dismiss being rude and insensitive as “Just being honest” without a sliver of compassion.
7. People Who Lie to You
When you know someone is lying to you, it’s a massive insult to your intelligence, making them insufferable to be around. Especially when you catch them in the lie, they begin backtracking or gaslighting your interpretation of what they said.
8. People Who Speed Up When Trying to Pass
People who won’t let you over when trying to merge onto the freeway or switch lanes are the absolute worst! They see you are trying to get over, speed up to avoid letting you into the lane, and then are only a car length in front of you at the exit. Regardless of how hard you stare, they keep their head facing forward while your eyes burn into their soul!
9. People Who Are Political Extremists
Political extremists on both sides are terrible and insufferable to be around. They manage to turn everything you say or do into a political talking point. I honestly think it’s to feed their ego as they spout off their favorite news anchors’ talking points as if it’s their independent thought. News flash: they are all corrupt at the top, and it’s not going to get better.
10. People Who Are Religious Extremists
I’m looking at you, Westboro Baptist church. Anyone who can protest a military funeral in the name of “God’s love” is a deplorable person who doesn’t represent Christ. People who use their religion to justify the hate they give are doing it wrong.
11. People Who Bully Others
Bullies ruin lives and create broken people. Many people associate that term with middle and high school, but adult bullies exist in the world of business, too. All of them are horrible, and many have driven people to do drastic things, including taking their own lives.
12. People Who One-Up Everything
People who one-up everything in conversation are the worst! I’m not talking about people trying to relate with their own stories of understanding. I mean the people who hear you say, “I have a headache,” and reply, “You think you’re in pain. I have a migraine, and my neck hurts.” People who participate in weird one-upping competitions instead of empathizing or bonding.

So many things that were once true in my lifetime are no longer true today. For example, my math teacher told us we needed to learn math because we wouldn’t carry a calculator in our pocket all day. While it’s still true that you need to learn math, you do have that calculator today. Here are several other former truths.
