Nobody is perfect sure but, some people are just too much to handle. Now it can take sometime to figure out the toxic people around you. They can very cagey about their true selves. If it turns out they're your best friend or sister that leaves you facing a conundrum. But if a brand new person strolls into your life and you can just smell their rotting carcass of an aura. You have the freedom to peace out there and then. Those red flags start waving immediately. If there is an IMMEDIATE dislike... just go!
Redditor u/9w_lf9 wanted to put everyone on notice by having the rest of us reveal... What is that one thing that immediately puts you off a person?
All roads lead back to them...
When they talk to you as if they're trying to have a conversation, but it quickly becomes obvious that they have no interest whatsoever in what you have to say and are just using you as a target to talk at.
Often they will start off by asking you a question, making it seem like they actually want to engage with you, but then regardless of your answer to the question they'll just start talking about whatever they wanted to talk about from the start. Even if you ask them a question related to their story, they'll often ignore it and keep going with the planned monologue.
"Hey giveuschannel83, what are you up to this weekend?"
"Oh I'm actually planning on -"
"I'm having my nieces over and I'm SO excited. Maggie is almost four now and she's just the cutest thing you've ever seen. They just LOVE my backyard pool."
"That sounds like fun, do they live close by?"
"The younger one is Sonia. She's such a troublemaker. She actually managed to throw her big sister in the pool last time! I mean can you believe it?!"
"That's funny, do you have any special plans with the-"
"Their mom is such a pain though. That's my sister in law. Oh my god I swear she became a vegan just to annoy me. She KNOWS I always make ribs every Labor Day weekend. It's like the only thing I'm good at cooking. At least her kids are ... (etc.)" giveuschannel83
We hear you...
When they constantly gossip and talk about people behind their back, you know they'll do it to you too. littlecookiemonster_
Oh god, my last workplace was exactly like that. It's infuriating, i used to really like the company too but the whole experience gave me anxiety. Littlefingersthroat
Never taking responsibility over their actions when it's clearly their fault. Funky_Nat
Not being able to own up to what you do is incredibly ugly in adults, that's something you're meant to grow out of in adolescence. SimplyUnhinged
Yeah but that's not really my fault because my parents raised me this way. -0__0
Clever conversation manuvuer...
More annoying? When they ask questions, but then try to talk over you constantly when you're attempting to answer (Like "How do I do x y and z?" or "What's your opinion on [some choice that needs to be made]?" type questions). And go way off topic, for no reason.
My go to with these people is, the second they interrupt, shut up and just stare them down with dead, annoyed eyes. And when they eventually stop talking, give a few seconds of dead air, don't acknowledge a SINGLE THING they just said, and continue talking from where you've left off. I've found that eventually they get the hint. Most of the time. LokiStrife
Have you met you?
Holding you to standards that they can't hold themselves. voldemortsnipple1402
My girlfriend is constantly holding me to higher standards then herself. It's really crappy. unicornsaretruth
I think it's worse when they downright refuse to even try. Like I can understand an addict saying "no addicts," but I can't stomach an addict who doesn't try to be clean and still judges other addicts. voltran1987
Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Insisting on taking selfies for the entire duration of a hangout. hello_friend_
I hate this too. I get it if you haven't seen someone in awhile and it's a special occasion but I had these work friends and three times a week we would get food after work and every few minutes we'd have to all stop eating so each person could get a few pictures up on their snapchat. Like moving seats to all get together in the picture. Not to sound like a baby boomer but jesus Ashley no one f***ing cares that you're getting Thai food again just let me eat. kiersis
Watch your tone...
Constantly interrupting during conversation. Mista_Madridista
For example, a friend that's on their phone when your talking and they look up after 3 minutes and say "huh?" Or when ur talking in a group of people and they just start having their own side conversation, not listening to you at all. Infuriating and rude. thehotmegan
The ones who talk over you as you are trying to say something . Bonus annoying points if they gradually talk louder and louder. solacekane
People who fish for compliments. Makes me cringe. Wehrwulf311
"New selfie today, I'm so ugly I wish I was dead. Will probably delete later because of how HORRENDOUS I look. Don't I look terrible?" radwic
"This sucks, but I don't feel like talking about it." cholita7
You ain't special honey!
Elitists. I've met people who can be snobs about anything and nothing is ever good enough unless it's their idea. AndyJCohen
I know this exactly, I had a bloke at my last work place who I got the impression that he looked down on me and other people. You have to imagine this camp guy, who through his work had worked with a lot of high ranking military officers. A typical conversation would be, person 1: 'i really like marshmallows' him: 'oh those marshmallows are not the best, you simply haven't have the marshmallows we have where I'm from, those are splendid, not like those,' now apply that sentence to a lot of the stuff he spoke about. Just an idiot pretending to be upper middle class, utter narcissistic twit. Cosmic09
Keep your cult!
Offering to let me in on an "amazing business opportunity where I can work from home."
I file those people under "decline the friend request they're going to send in five minutes." theonlydidymus
I had a friend from college I was trying to get back in touch with. I had messaged her a couple times. Radio silence. Even found the same last name as hers in my family tree, and my ancestors were from the same area where her ancestors were from. I thought that was really cool, so I messaged her about that, too. Didn't hear anything until a month later: all she sent me was a sales pitch for some MLM she was a part of. I didn't respond. strawberry36
