Lazy people

The lazy People

I know of a few lazy people the kind who often will use an excuse to get out of work.

They pretend to be the hard workers, and when it comes to helping out at functions, they don't offer their help instead fake illnesses.

Around where I live the local people get together when in need of manual work.

  • For example:

The local people would help neighbors when there are planned functions.

The usual helping out with making of the lunch or coffee, and in making the home look attractive and neat is required.

  • I don't mind helping out!

It is understandable, if one has lots to do or other plans with family, and if they have kids to take care of that is not easy to help out all day.

It is common for people to pretend to be sick, or to say that they have a painful back or headache to get away from helping out.

When the tough gets going the going gets tough that is how it is with some people.

  • Lazy people are afraid to stand all day or to be energetic and help out.

Whenever there is a function she makes an excuse about her health.

  • Her excuses are as follows:

Her back or arm is sore, or she is not feeling well from a headache.

That woman makes herself incompetent as often as possible especially, if there is loads of work to do.

In her own way she gets out of many situations.

  • How would you recognize the lazy traits in Individuals?

  • What does it mean when you call someone lazy?

The lazy person does not try to do any more work than what has already been tried. Nothing gets done unless if totally necessary.

I know of people who would only clean their homes only when towards Christmas and the New Year holidays. Another time when their homes actually get cleaned properly is when it is time for spring cleaning.

They leave their homes untidy. Clothing all over the place except for in drawers or cupboards. To find a T-shirt or a pair of jeans is almost impossible.

The dust accumulates around the home, and the only the visible places stay somewhat clean.

The daily chore around the house barely gets done.

  • What is the laziest trait of all?

Lazy people enjoy blaming others for their faults. They won't take responsibility for what goes wrong.

The less organized life they have, and with no thought of how it affects their daily lives, is what makes people most lazy at times.

People who don't get any work up to date, and who don't get to appointments on time blame others for their time being wasted.

  • For example:

When late to work people blame the traffic.

Laziness can also be blamed on several kinds of addictions.

The commonly mentioned like such as the following:

''I am out of control with my addiction.''

''What can I do my life is helpless?''

My addiction is killing me and I have failed to stop it.''

They use the addiction to get out of their bad behaviors.

Smoking is a bad habit, and can be stopped if one puts their mind to it. With laziness smokers don't try hard enough.

The non-lazy person will find a way to get work finished, or would try something useful to stop smoking.

Laziness leads to many problems in relationships.

The lack of attention with your partner is another lazy habit. Partners who have busy schedules fail to make time for each other. Lazy people do what they can to put up with and won't go beyond that life.

  • It is called unethical.

Lazy people tend to lie on one another.

The honest person will go to great lengths to make an effort to get work finished, while the lazy person shows no honesty.

It is like the spoiled kid who does not behave in public, and throws tantrums to get what they want without an effort.

The lazy person throws tantrums and is not a happy person. Those who work and who make the effort to get along with others are the non-lazy people.

The lazy people are the kind who make an effort to get to know other people, and those who are happy to be with each other.

  • Have you noticed in the workplace of a co-worker often turning up late for work?

Lazy people don't know how to be punctual, and are slow to make decisions just like procrastinators.

The excuse to them is always a valid one. Even when you know it is a lame excuse. When lazy people they don't use traffic as an excuse it is something about their car that did not work. Also, a flat tire is another excuse.

The not so good feeling is often the excuse for arriving late, or not turning up at all which can a make a situation look more serious.

In many cases you are not able to confirm their lies.

The non-lazy person is always on time and shows an effort. The lazy person is not on time. The individual won’t even bother to call and let you know if they are coming to you or not.

When it comes to laziness it is not easy to make out. The inner quality of the individual tells you if that person is the lazy one.

What makes an individual make an effort, and what makes an individual so genuinely lazy depends on how you understand the lazy person.

Lazy people make the effort if they are threatened by someone.

Lazy people often take breaks to move on, and can't wait for all the work to be over with.

If only one individual is required for a certain activity, the person doing this will ask for the unnecessary help of another.

  • I have seen this happen and it really annoyed me. If one person can do the job why ask for the help of another?

  • What is the real issue of laziness?

The lack of motivation allows individuals to be lazy.

Something holds you back from getting up from that chair. Sometimes hurt can make you feel lazy.

You need to be focused on the problem that is making you feel this way.

Tiredness can bring you down. Being afraid of showing up at an event can make you feel lazy to get up and about with your plans.

Lazy people don't exercise regularly.

The achievements are poor.

The planned diets are not always followed.

They don't always do what is on their list.

Their activities are chosen and in time are forgotten about.

Lazy people dress differently or untidily and not much thought is put into the way they are dressed.

People without an ambitious mind don't have any plans and follow the lazy path.

Laziness spreads and makes people like couch potatoes.

Lazy people talk about what inspires them and about their new ideas. Don't make an attempt to get their plans in motion.

Interesting enough the lazy person would take days to start or finish a job.

  • For example:

In Europe if one needs a handyman, a bricklayer, a plumber or an electrician these guys won't come to you as planned.

When eventually they do arrive at your home to get the job done, it would still take a number of days, or sometimes even months to complete.

  • That can be frustrating.

It is a today or tomorrow issue that hardly gets to be completed.

Often the lazy person won't go forward they fail to see what is wrong with their lazy behavior.

Laziness pulls them back and sitting down to watch television is another bad habit, and prolonging the task is worse.

A television in the bedroom lures laziness immediately.

No effort, no work, and no social life mean more lazy people around you.

Making an excuse of one’s health not being good enough to help out should not be the way of getting out of work.

  • Be true to yourself.

I have come across many lazy individuals and they think using their health as an excuse is the best way to get out of helping others in need.

      This is so true. I worked with someone once who was so lazy that she emptied books from bookcases on the floor and then proceeded to talk on the phone to her friends all day. When the boss would inquire about the messy books, she would say she had to organize them and it will take a while to get them all back in proper order. But she told me that she did it for job security. She said they'd never be able to get rid of her job if her area was a constant mess! LOL

      Lack of motivation seems to be the main problem for a healthy person. A lot of other conditions are mistaken for laziness such as depression, fatigue, malnutrition or substance abuse.

      I never understood lazy people until I read your hub. Interesting as always. I have to keep busy when I do get lazy I throw myself into the toughest problems and it snaps me out of that temporary mood.Usually if I am catching a cold or feeling sick I feel lazy. Then I find out the reason why and shake it or break the habit real soon.Loved another one of your hubs. Voted up.

      Fellow hubber such a problem can be fixed if one participates more with working together in hleping each other out. Using illness as an excuse is terrible. Thank you for sharing your thoughts here.

      Interesting hub about excuses for lazy people! You explained some interesting points here.

      Some persons are by nature lazy and no one else can help them, but themselves. I am not lazy and I do not like laziness at all.

      Thanks for this interesting hub!

      Thank you for the this article. How do we fix this problem? You did an excellent job of describing the reality.

      Interesting article, Devika! Whenever I go somewhere, I like to do my share or help. It's in my nature. I think "lazy people" are missing opportunities. It's great to be with other people, participate and exchange ideas while working with others. On the long run, people who don't want to help or participate, will end up by themselves.... and that can be quite lonely.

      Ejoy your weekend, Devika!

      Laziness is unforgivable. Although I don't agree with all of you statements I do think people need to do their share. I know there are people who at times have thought I was lazy. These same people years later have come back to tell me they understand.

      Wow I am impressed that you could write a whole hub on this very unpleasant characteristic trait. I feel that it is a mental di-ease. I don't really know of anybody who I would typecast as being lazy. Not after I read your hub.... Oh yes, I know of a couple, we call them bone idle. Terrible.

      I have a very low tolerance for laziness. No patience at all with it. I was raised to value hard work and I can't stand watching people sit around and do nothing. What are they waiting for? Do they think they will get another shot at this thing called life?

      Laziness is a terrible character trait for sure and people soon know who to not ask for help from as they know it is futile! God has much to say in his Word about laziness and those who are idle. Interesting article. Love your photos lol. Up and more. Have a great weekend, Faith Reaper
