Slightly Out Of Place
Have you ever felt really annoyed when someone doesn’t realise you’re annoyed? That really ticks me off.
Sometimes, I just have to tell people, “Yes, I’m pissed off. At you”. Because they just can’t take a hint.
I have friends who understand when I’m angry. I have these sort of telltale signs that show that I’m mad. Other people don’t notice. I was discussing this with my hostee Diamond yesterday. Sometimes you can tell when someone is annoyed or in a bad mood – they just tell you. Others just keep quiet. Others get snappy.
In real life, when I’m annoyed, I keep a pretty blank face. Depending on where I am, I will get out a piece of paper, or my scribble book, and start scribbling and doodling. It helps me get the anger out.
But, since a lot of things annoy me online, and you can’t see my face, you can probably tell from my words or from the way I’m typing.
Typing in perfect English with perfect grammar.
I do that especially on MSN. I capitalise every sentence, I use commas, I use full stops. I capitalise names, I don’t leave a sentence unturned, and no way in hell do I use emoticons. Normally on MSN, I don’t use chatspeak, and I spell my words correctly. If I make a mistake I usually don’t bother correcting myself. I use many emoticons. I don’t always capitalise my Is.
When I’m annoyed on MSN, I usually only speak eloquently to the person I am talking to. I don’t want to seem annoyed at anyone else, especially when I’m talking to friends. I tend to snap, and write in short sentences without explanations. Take “Yes.” and “No.” for example.
And I forgot to mention. I use a lot of big words, like verbiage, pejorative, maudlin, and floccinaucinihilipilification1 Which, for once, is a large word I can actually use.
Usually on Twitter, a lot of people annoy me. They try to argue with me or continually ask for help. Ahem.
As I mentioned in a previous blog, I like to help people. But when it comes to the point I’m about to lose it, no. Some people just don’t get the hint that I am pissed off. On Twitter, I tend to tweet one-worded statements like “bitch”, “idiot”, “snap”, “annoyed” (oh no, you would be surprised how many people don’t understand this)…
On the other hand, I curse my head off with a multitude of tweets filled with f-words, s-words, c-words and b-words.
I end up writing a blog going off on a big rant about something. Often you can’t really tell that I’m annoyed, but the entire blog ends up being a rant (not too appealing).
I’m not a naturally angry person, but some little things do annoy me. Lately people have also been rather ignorant to what I say… It’s like, did you not hear what I just said? Now there’s no need for floccinaucinihilipilification.
But, don’t be fooled by that. I’m actually in a good mood. :) I got approved for four fanlistings. I have only created two, and they are the fanlistings for two songs by Nirvana – Polly and Drain You.
My fanlisting collective at Eyethief.com also has a new layout so please take a look and tell me what you think – here or there, doesn’t matter. :D
