Ex. : You hate judgmental people but you know that you can be just as judgmental.

Obsessing about misspellings. (ruminating)

The things I dislike in others are not characteristics I possess. Polar opposite.
I dislike boring small talk, I do not care that you made pork chops for dinner last night or mowed your lawn or are going to wash your car today.
I dislike trying to listen to people that can’t spit their words out and are not articulate.

I dislike those that have poor social skills and conversational skills, that do not acknowledge what you say, shift the conversation back to themselves and fail to ask questions. I especially dislike those with no sense of humor or playfulness.

Self-righteous religious irk me to no end because I’ve been around them all my life and I hate to see myself in them.

@JimTurner Yes! That too! Bah!

Everyone needs a witness goose to keep the Jehovahs away, my goose Marwyn relished his witness protection duties. Once I had a JW come onto my property and ask me didn’t I want to live in paradise? I replied, ” I already do and you’re trespassing in it right now!” lol

I hate it when my husband is always being melodramatic about things… apologizing fifty-eleven times about something that not only wasn’t an issue, hadn’t been complained about, but wasn’t even his fault in any way (the recycling not being picked up and I me saying that we have to find a place to put the excess until next week, that sort of thing). Yet I always feel like everything is my fault and he’s always mad at me, and I know I end up being melodramatic about it.

My horrible temper. I see anger and temper in other people here and it drives me crazy, yet I find myself losing my own at times and regretting it.

JimTurner's avatar

@KNOWITALL ditto. I’m guilty of the same thing.

@JimTurner Two peas in a pod! Shall we agree to always forgive each other? lol

Coloma's avatar

Oh dear flying spaghetti monster, I forgot my number 1 hatred…passive agressive people!

Houmours here, not in real life.

JimTurner's avatar

@KNOWITALL Most definitely.

Thank you.

I am guilty of this myself more than I care to admit.

Coloma's avatar

Oh, I failed to mention nosy people! If I ever become nosy just shoot me. lol
@cookieman Compared to all the other possibilities procrastination is a non-issue.
I procrastinate too. :-)

Passive aggressiveness and the silent treatment.

Self-absorption and know-it-allness.
