There are a few types of people that I immediately switch off to. They are usually:
The ones that turn me off the quickest are the snobby types. You know the ones. They seem disinterested when you greet them for the first time. The ones with the lame handshake. The ones who don’t acknowledge you the next time you see them – that really riles me up.
Unfortunately for me, my social circle tends to be a little bit incestuous. Everyone is at most two degrees of separation away. I tend to bump into these people from time to time. So the way I deal with them is thus: they don’t give a shit about me, so I won’t give a shit about them. I don’t smile, I don’t look at them, and I certainly don’t care what they think of me. If they hear me bitching about them, all the better.
Sometimes our eyes will meet inadvertently and I will hold it for just a split second longer. They may have heard what I had said or had wrote here, and they know what I think of them. They hate me for it. And now it’s them who’s riled up, and I can see it in their eyes. Hahah!
Yeah I’m just callous that way. Life is short. I don’t need everyone to like me when I can count on my two hands and a little bit more, the people who really matter. They are the ones whom I’d bend over backwards for, and make an effort for. They are the ones whom I’d make up and apologise to if I’d make mistakes.
The rest can just fall off on the side. They are just not worthy of my time or my efforts to figure out why they behave the way they do. I know what is and who is more important, and I definitely want to spend my time being preoccupied by those things and people instead. 🙂
