Time and again, we come across people who are pompous and believe themselves to be the only descendants of Aryans living in this world. They act out like they are the only ones gifted with the best quality of all and believe that they are above everyone else. However, I am not suggesting that you think lowly of yourself.
No, rather, you should have confidence in yourself.
As our very own King Khan says, “If I don’t consider myself as the best, no one else will.” I completely agree with this statement. You have to be the one who is in control of your life, but many times, people tend to forget this and try to barge in and take control over the lives of others as well.
You are not supposed to bore people with the goods deeds’ you did in the past or brag about your strengths to anyone until you are asked.
No matter how badly you want to express your feelings to someone, one should be aware of the fact that no one really cares about what you are doing or did, except for your parents, of course, who apparently have no choice but to care. And if, in any case, people listen to such creatures, they only do so for the sake of being polite.
LET YOUR ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN YOUR WORDS!
For people like me who suffer a great deal from such people and have gone almost sick and tired of them, I am here penning down 5 of the most annoying people you will find in India who think that they are the best at every single thing they do or sometimes they don’t do.
1. English – That is just a piece of cake for me!
You will find such people almost everywhere nowadays doing ‘gonna,’ ‘watcha,’ and ‘what’s up’ without realizing that these words are not meant to be used at an attempt of a show-off, and they have been evolved out of Southerner’s vernacular towards which these very people look down upon.
Such speak in the most “affluent English,” something not comprehensible to humanity. It might be understandable to some of the aliens or people belonging to their kind itself! They think that they speak in the best way possible. Under this misunderstood impression, they tend to speak very fast whereby the person to whom they are speaking, do not understand even a single word. There are a lot of misunderstandings in the conversations undertaken by them. And when this happens, you will find a universal reaction from these types of people saying that” Oh man, People can’t understand my English.” Oh, yes, they can’t; in fact, nobody can.
2. Shut up! I know everything.
I believe that these kinds of people are suffering from a severe disease and need special attention, so they keep on asserting that they know everything. Even if you try to make them understand something calmly, they won’t give up. To the extreme, if you, as a matter of fact, get successful in proving them wrong, you still don’t win because then they would have something to say which will go beyond your head, and ultimately you will give up. They can stoop down to talking nonsense to prove themselves right. And if everything fails, they probably will faint to stop the show!
3. I am better than the Helen of Troy!
Now I would like to draw your special attention towards another category of these annoying people. These people are the most beautiful people found on this planet, but so only in their own eyes! What to do when someone says,” I am gorgeous, much more than anyone around”? You can make a poker face and nod your head in distress, maybe. This mentality evolves because of psychological issues such as a superiority complex or a major lack of attention. I think parents should keep assuring their children that they are beautiful. Otherwise, God forbid!
4. Hey, look at her dress! So cheap!
These are the most judgmental of the lot. They can comment upon anything and everything they come across. Even when they are not in their senses which I presume they never are, they can still notice something and pass on a comment. These are the people who look down upon everyone and think of themselves as belonging to some elite class. They don’t consider or think about the possibilities or consequences before blurting out their comment on someone. Most importantly, they speak it out in front of the person in concern, which is very humiliating. They have no control over their tongue and mind. Sorry! I mean tongue.
5. How can I waste my time peeing? I am studying!
These are the most pretentious people you will ever find. They pretend to study to a very high level, and the pretension reaches such an extent that they don’t score much in the finals. It doesn’t matter if it is a metro ride or a walk on the road; they keep reading something, even in the most pathetic conditions. Practically, one needs a minimum level of concentration to read and grasp what they are reading, but then you definitely don’t need any concentration if you are pretending. You will need acting skills!
Here is my list of the 5 annoying habits. God! Things I would do to get rid of such people.
