Why do some people HAVE to speak out of turn? Contributing to conversation without being selfish seems like a skill not many can cultivate easily. And it comes at great irritation to the group. Often times you just want to shake them and scream, "NOBODY CARES!" in their faces.
u/D-Doss667 wanted a list of these things and asked Reddit: What's something people do that make you internally scream "no one cares"?
Here were some of the answers.
When my coworker opens their mouth to just repeat the same thing another person said in the meeting, but dumbed down and twice as long.
It just reminds me of SNL or MadTV skit poking fun of John Madden, "They would've won the game if they scored more touchdowns." or however it goes.
The Insecure Olympics
Excessive posts about their relationship. Like, we all can tell you're insecure af when your husband is clearly not happy with you, and you continue to gush about him.
The Rocks That I GotGiphy
I work in a jewelry store, and people come in every single day and brag about how much their engagement ring costs or how much money they have. It's always a little satisfying when they apply for our house credit card and get denied.
Toxic On Toxic
I have a friend who keeps track of what toxic people from her past are doing and gossips about it and I don't know a polite way to tell her how much I don't care.
Social Media Anger
Passive aggressive Facebook statuses. Just let that person know... no need to tell the world that you are "tired of not being appreciated!!!!!"
Stick To Your GunsGiphy
Crowdfund for their expensive wedding. Your family and friends love you enough to get you a nice gift. But nobody cares enough about your "amazing love story" to shell out for the wedding you've decided you deserve but can't afford. Amazes me how often I see this.
We're All In This Together
No one cares that you are late for work. if we are sitting in rush hour traffic in the morning, you bet your -ss EVERYONE just wants to get to work. Don't ride me when I'm inching along JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. I can't go anywhere. YOU cant go anywhere. We're stuck here until other cars move. I don't feel bad for you if you're late.
I Don't Know Her
People who talk incessantly about people you don't know: "I usually go to Jim and Darlene's for Thanksgiving, but this year, Ted, and Joe, and I are going to mix-it-up and go with Lars and Frieda to Ralph's cabin." Who are these people? I don't know, and I don't care.
When people on Facebook post a list of all the things they have to do/did that day and the whole list is just normal day to day things that everyone has to do but we're all supposed to be impressed that you did the dishes today.
Journey To The Past
When someone tells a story from their past, and they pause struggling to recall a person's full name. This mystery person's name is irrelevant to me. Please just continue the story instead of awkwardly making me wait while you exercise your memory in front of me.
It's NOT My Party
Telling me exactly how drunk they got on the weekend, what drinks they had and in what order, what stupid drinking games they played and how hungover they were the next day. Especially when its said with this great sense of pride.
Human Decency Tho?Giphy
When people are grieving or shocked about a celebrity's death and someone goes, "am I the only one who doesn't care?"
Yeah I get it, it's "just" a celebrity. But nobody cares that you don't care.
Get It Together Betty
When people complain about slow service (at a busy hour) or a messed up order at fast food restaurants and try to gather sympathy from those around you saying stuff like, "Can you believe this!?!? Unbelievable!!" while at the same time berating the workers behind the counter that are making slightly above minimum wage and have to deal with shitheads like you all day.
No one fucking cares you need to wait an extra minute to get your McGriddle, Betty.
Becky And Betty Should Be Friends
I think it's great when people lose weight and get healthy.
I don't think it's great when Becky loses 5 pounds every summer and then puts it back on in the Winter and begins to talk about her #fitfablife with #nocarbs and #nopainnogain.
No one f-cking cares, Becky.
Stop Selling Me Your Life, BrendaGiphy
"I'm soooooo blessed and honored to announce that blah blah blah blah blah!" Good for you, but you don't need to hold a press release to let people know about every little thing in your life.
