Should you be annoyed with me?

Filed under: Philosophy,Psychology,Scrammo — davidmbrowndotcom @ 8:56 am

I think that sometimes persons are annoyed when I express my annoyance at something, or disagreement with something. They are annoyed by my annoyance, which can only annoy me. I’m not saying that they should not be annoyed at the things which are truly annoying; but when they’re annoyed at me merely for being annoyed at something which is in fact annoying, then they are are not only wrong but annoying. So, first I get annoyed, rationally, at something annoying; then sombeody else’s irrational annoyance at my rational annoyance tumbles onto the scene; then I have to slather on a second layer of rational annoyance to bolster and affirm the first layer; which only irrationally annoys them all the more; which is annoying. You can see how these people go to great lengths to work themselves up into a lather of substanceless annoyance when they never had a sound point to begin with. It would be better if they hid in a closet, albeit one commodious enough not to elicit their contrived complaints.
