10 Groups of People Who Need to Hear, "Hey, jerk! Enough is enough!"

"I say, my good reader. The information contained in this piece might prove helpful to you as a warm, caring citizen. I suggest that you read it carefully."

Beware certain groups

There are among us, groups of individuals who do or say certain annoying things that make us, the quieter folks, the folks who had rather mind their own business than get into a quarrel, get instantly edgy, irritable, and unable to make sense of the rest of our days.

Hear that? That is the sound of a dangerous can of snakes (not worms) that can slither back to me and bite me on the buttocks. But we only live once and why should I protest a few snake bites on my butt for the cause of making a point? Doctors have loads of anti-vernon on hand.

"Karl," the buzz kill appears

I know that some of you are confused at my topic, so I shall give you a simple explanation. There you are, a mild-mannered, God-fearing, flag-loving American and you are about to meet the president of the United States, a dream you have had since you were 10. But before you can leave your home to keep your appointment, the phone rings and guess who it is? Your super-annoying, verbal-abusive, selfish-natured next door neighbor, "Karl," who hasn't called you in months. Now he wants to expound on why he hates Europe and more asinine subjects. You want to hang up, but you know that "Karl," has a vengeful temper and will get even with you if you follow your heart.

Wouldn't you love to shout at "Karl," "Hey, enough is enough! I got the appointment of my life in 30 minutes and all you want to do is grind your jaws on stupid subjects. Stop it! Now good day!" If you did, would you not feel more empowered as a man? Well, "Karl" is not the only member of an annoying group that can push our buttons. Believe me there are more.

And here they are . . .

Undisciplined dog

Barking dogs

who bark at you for no reason should be reported to their owner(s). Now I love dogs and other animals as much as the next person, but when I leave or enter my home and all I hear is this humongous dog barking at me for no reason is grounds to say . . ."enough is enough."

Neighborhood big mouth

Drunk in bar

Gluttony equals stupidity

I shouldn't have to

say anything here about this subject. Big mouths are not to be trusted. You cannot confide in them for they, for reasons of self-security, are always breaking vows to friends and running their mouths and adding false information to true stories. If you know a big mouth who has pushed you almost over the edge, just tell them in a firm manner . . . "Shut up!"

The very next time

I run into a person who has drank more than their fill of booze and taking up space in a bar, I shall, for their own good, shake them, wake them and say, "Friend. Have you not learned that abusing alcohol is no way to have fun or solve conflicts?" "Please stop this! Enough si enough."

I was sincerely hoping

that the photo I chose for this topic was fake. I really don't know, but if there are people (like this guy) who is trying to consume this giant burger, I shudder with fear for the obesity rate in our country will rise to a point to where health issues will dominate our lives. So people who love to abuse their bodies by being a glutton, "Enough is enough."

This is super-lazy

The Holy Bible is correct

when it states that "there are seven things the Lord hates," and one of His hated things is laziness or slothfulness. I never understood this when I was young, so when I became a man with a wife an child, it hit home. Men (and women) should be productive and help make society a safe, warm place to live. I have never seen a lazy person do anything but lay around. May I say to you lazy people . . . "Stop this. Enough is enough."

Moderation, Mr. Cop

Mr. Policeman and woman

I want to point out to you that there is not a secret amount of tickets you need to write on your shift to just keep your job. Besides, some of your misjudged tickets will be thrown out by an angry judge, so why not be moderate in your law enforcement? Or you will hear from the spectators in the court room . . . "Please stop this asinine act, Mr. Cop!"

Self-centered

If you know a self-centered person

then this topic will appeal to you. How many times has your self-centered friend embarrassed you with his or her gazing into a nearby mirror while you are talking? This made you angry, right? It should. Just my opinion, but a friendship or work relationship has no room for a self-centered person. This trait is nothing but toxic to productivity. You saying, "Stop it," is appropriate.

Brutal displays

Source

Is it carved in granite

that men, and today, aggressive women, just have to get into barroom fights or fights in general? I am serious? Now I am not against a man fighting for his wife or children against a low-life who means to harm them, but to just get into a fight to prove his manhood or a woman her security? I do not get it. But I do wish that someone would tell these people, "Enough! Stop it. You are humans."

Unruly students

Teachers have enough pressure

on them to educate your children without having to deal with students (and I use that term loosely) who do not know how to behave because their parents are way too busy making money to teach them respect for authority. Seriously. Teachers, just say in a mild tone to these poor, misguided kids, "Stop it! I mean it or you will be expelled." (then back-up what you say).

Innocent victim

Are you

living like the woman in the graphic above? She is always being accused of something she did not do or something she did not say by people who are not worthy of the name, "human." She has endured this stupidity for years and it is taking its toll on her. So what would be the harm in her saying to her tormentor's face . . . "Stop it, jerks! I have had enough." None I see.

"Thank you for reading my hubs upon my return from having a heart cath a few days ago. And I ask your prayers as I try to get better a day at the time. Thank you."

Kenneth

Wonderful list! Unfortunately, I've encountered many of these people. The one I'm currently dealing with that could be added to this list is the "Just a little more, for me, please?" guy. You know, the one that asks you for a favor, which you agree to do, and then that favor grows, and grows and grows, until you are making huge sacrifices you can't afford and you want to strangle him. And, for some reason, your relationship is such that you cannot tell him or her no without paying serious consequences. Yeah, I'm getting tired of that guy too!

You are right, but somehow the message just doesn’t get through to the offenders. You may appreciate this story that a friend told me. He said his own outdoor dog liked to bark. One night in the middle of the night his phone rang. When he answered, all he heard on the line was a dog barking. His dog. The neighbor had put the phone out the window. He said got the hint.

Note on lazy people. They don’t just lie around; they bitch about the way you go about getting things done. You don’t do it their way, so they work their mouths.

Kenneth, praying for your speedy recovery and sending Reike healing to you.

Love and light.

Kenneth, This isn't the list I was expecting, which was a relief. I read so much political whining, I assumed this would be another bit. Thanks for expanding your imagination to include actual, factual annoyances!! When I read about the drunk, I wondered if you ever ordered them a taxi? As a grandmother I worry constantly about drunks on the road. Hope your recovery goes well, Barbara

kbdressman:

Oh, how right you are. And yes, I have encountered "your" annoying person during the years I have lived on earth.

They are so nice, polite, and yet, so sneaky-greedy. Three helpings of ice cream is just not enough.

And they hit you, if you are the chef, with a pseudo compliment to soften your heart, "I cannot help it, Miss Jones. You sure have a way with ice cream." He does not know you just bought it at the local market.

This person deserves a private ministering to tell him how uncomfortable his/her habit of glutting all of your food that you worked for hours not just for him, but the entire party, makes you.

Please keep writing to me. I love it

MizbeJabbers,

Right on! You and I can talk our heads off and the ones you want to not hurt, but teach, never get it. Biblically speaking, they are like the ones with a "plank in their eye trying to get a mote out of someone else's eyes." Only a tough talk to them will help.

Thank you, my Dear Friend, for making this hub worth the writing.

God bless you.

Wish you good health and speedy recovery Kenneth.

What a wonderful and funny list!! Made me chuckle :D These are all highly annoying types of people who just waste our time. I think I hate the selfish type the most, and my solution to deal with them is to be overtly insensitive to them just to make them angry and worked-up. Awesome hub! :)

Yes Daryln, Kenneth has a great sense of humor,

He is really a sweet heart, he has always shown a good example of HP, etiquette. If he disagrees with something he is quiet but expresses the truth in his hub, most humorous I must say, what good therapy he provides to us as a kind jester. I want him to heal and get through his recovery , I know what he is up against I have been faced with the same thing in my family . So when he writes again

I will happy to know he is feeling better these days

To his family I wish you all blessings from Jehovah.

Hi, Temptor94,

Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. Selfish people also annoy me too. And if they would not do it so openly, I guess that I could cope with it, but most selfish people who I know make a show of it just to keep that title of "Selfish Jerk" stapled to their shirt lapel.

Kenneth

DarylnCochrane,

Hello. How are things in New York? I bet you have a great time every day, right? I have never been to New York, but my late daughter did on her senior trip years ago and she loved it.

Thanks for your comment and I want you to be safe and have a peaceful day. Come back anytime.
