For my own mental health, I truly hope this list will remain short & my list of likes will be much longer. I’ll update this as I recall things that annoy me.
1. Abusive Bosses
2. Evil Co-workers
4. Beetroot, Bamboo, Raw Beansprouts & Oysters
5. Hot Sticky Weather
6. Arrogant, Fake or Mean People
7. Guilt Trips
8. Facebook invading my privacy
9. Phones ringing loudly, especially in the wee hours
10. Being mocked for someone else’s amusement
I see that #1 and #2 are all over the world. I hate those too. My mom is good at giving guilt trips, but I’ve learned from her and can now use them against her!
the problem with me is that I am hyper sensitive and easily guilt tripped!
i don’t like bamboo shoots in my ramen either
I thought I was the only one. Great to know I am not alone.
I like that list you come up with and I agree with #11 because it makes my blood boil every now and then to hear of arrogant, insensitive doctors who think they are gods and more supreme than their patients and nursing colleagues (I highly respect nurses a lot). Just because they have a medical doc title to their names, it does not give them the right to be monsters and I say if they want to be arrogant and have that god complex, I truly believe that they have stupidly violated the Hippocrates’ Oath. Secondly, if I were the head of the hospital who gets wind of this kind of doctor from the patients and nurses, I will not tolerate that nonsense and see to that he or she can kiss goodbye to his or her medical career, Dr. title, and licence to practice on the spot.
that sounds great to me…on the other hand I do respect doctors out there who are truly humble. Usually the humble ones turn out to also be the best doctors and the most experienced – and they relate to patients with genuine empathy. Arrogance is something I really cannot tolerate. It’s terrible especially when your family member is critically ill and you have to deal with the cold hearted abruptness and just plain rude treatment. You just feel so helpless and at their mercy. Something needs to happen at a Societal and governmental level to make sure this doesn’t happen.
I love the movie ‘Doctor’ with William Hurt, which showed how an arrogant doctor who becomes the patient learns about humility – it’s a case of a taste of his own medicine (pun intended). It was just brilliant and all doctors should watch that one, plus Patch Adams (Robin Williams shows us an example of a wonderful doctor). I also take exception with shows like Grey’s Anatomy where the surgeons treat patients like pieces of meat and talk about their inane stuff during operations. It freaks me out to think that happens in real life too.
The 1st 2 points are so common in SG offices. Especially number 2. Sometimes you did things out of good intention but ppl misunderstood you of being yah yah.
it’s sad that it’s so common huh? Didn’t used to be like that for me back in the day. I only experienced wonderful angelic colleagues and kind bosses then. That was before the millenium and then things got crazy. It was everyone for themselves.
Oh gosh I suffering in the humidity here and I do agree on the mean peeps
it was scorching hot yesterday…hoping for rain today.
