The Skill of Knowing How To Tick People Off!

You know it's true! We all get annoyed or ticked off by things that people do. But have you ever just wanted to intentionally tick someone off because you feel like being a brat? Sometimes I do, I admit it. That way, I'm not the only one in a bad mood. I know we're all incredibly busy and so really don't have time to worry about ticking others off.  But when you just have that really bad day.........Here are some great ideas to do just that!

  • Specify that your drive-through order is "TO-GO."
  • Insist on keeping your car windshield wipers running in all weather conditions "to keep them tuned up."
  • Reply to everything someone says with "that's what you think."
  • Highlight irrelevant information in scientific papers and "cc" them to your boss.
  • Make beeping noises when a large person backs up
  • Finish all your sentences with the words "in accordance with prophesy."
  • Signal that a conversation is over by clamping your hands over your ears and grimacing.
  • Adjust the tint on your TV so that all the people are green, and insist to others that you "like it that way."
  • Decline to be seated at a restaurant, and simply eat their complimentary mints at the cash register.
  • type only in lowercase.
  • Buy a large quantity of orange traffic cones and reroute whole streets.
  • Ask people what gender they are.
  • While making presentations, occasionally bob your head like a parakeet.
  • Sit in your front yard pointing a hair dryer at passing cars to see if they slow down.
  • Go to a poetry recital and ask why each poem doesn't rhyme.
  • Ask your co-workers mysterious questions and then scribble their answers in a notebook. Mutter something about "psychological profiles."
I hope you enjoyed this list as much as I do.  Do you have anything that is sure to annoy or tick someone off?  Would love to hear!

The drive-through people have easy ways to get you back. Like asking "Is that it?" after every single item you order.

"I'll have a Big Mac"

"Is that it?"

"No, I'll have a large fry."

"Is that it?

"NO, I'll have a large coke".

"Is that it?"

[sighs heavily] "YES, that's it."

"Would you like 2 apple pies for a dollar?"

I'm going to start bobbing my head like a parakeet and redirecting traffic. But I'll probably steal the cones.

That is to funny. My Old Man has these moods where we go to starbucks and he wants to confuse the kids behind the counter. "I'll just have a coke"
I on the other hand like to say "small"
the poor kids look at me "venti?"
NO THE SMALL ONE! You can tell the frustration by the tone they use....

How about when the drive through asks"Would you like to Super size it?"Ticks me off every time Most likely ticks them off when I say "No' "I will have what I ordered"!
