I Hate Nosey People

Nosey people irritate me.

Sometimes I wonder if they even stop and think to themselves, "Self, is this REALLY any of my business? Should I butt into this conversation and give my unwarranted advice/opinion on the matter when no one was talking to me in the first place?"....I'm going to go with, no, they NEVER ask themselves that question because they interrupt so quickly. It is almost as if it is second nature for them to butt in where they are not wanted.

I was at the salon this past weekend...minding my business...reading The Watchmen (for the 4th time...CAN'T WAIT FOR MARCH 5TH!!!)...sitting under the dryer. Along comes one of the stylists to ask me if he can see my tattoo on my arm. No problem. I show him and he says he wanted to see it because he plans to go get a tattoo in honor of him and his wife being married some 30+ years. Awwww, how cute! So we are chatting it up about how many tattoos I have, what they are, when I got them, where I got them and here comes NOSEY, rudely interrupting with her unasked for 2 cents:

"You need to stay away from them thangs. All this Hepatitis going around. Don't make no sense. Tattoos are a fad that needs to die and they're dangerous"

Really lady? First of all, who in the f*ck was talking to you? Second, you're rude as hell! I politely turned around and said:

"Ummm, I've never gotten hepatitis and I have 12. Anytime I've had work done, it was with a brand new needle and if I personally can't determine that the shop or instruments are clean, I just don't get it. But I think he was talking me though. Who are you?"

"I'm a nurse honey"

"Anyway (turning towards the man), as I was saying, I can refer you to some reputable tattoo artists when you are ready to get yours. I promise you won't be disappointed or get hepatitis from these folks".

We finished up our conversation and he wasn't a bit phased by her hating azz. When I said "Anyway" and kept talking to him, she looked at me like I was THE MOST disrespectful person in the world. Granted, she was old enough to be my mother but so what? I'm 29 years old. Just because you are old enough to be my mother, it doesn't make you my mother nor does it AUTOMATICALLY give you the right to jump in a conversation that has nothing to do with you. You don't get a rude pass ma'am. She better be glad she interrupt 29 year old Synitta and not 19 year old Synitta. The conversation would have gone something like this:

"You need to stay away from them thangs. All this Hepatitis going around. Don't make no sense. Tattoos are a fad that needs to die and they're dangerous"

"Who was talking to you old lady? No one so shut the f*ck up, stick yo head back in that bowl, and mind your damn business. All up in mine!"

And I wouldn't have felt the least bit of remorse for barking at her. She need to mind her own business.

So moral of the story is...if no one is talking to you, mind yo damn business.

Awww man, Syn. I'm at work and I literally want to clap SO LOUD AND HARD. It's eating me up that I can't (and I'm serious too; no exaggerations like Teef said in that blog that time lol)

I can't STAND nosey people. I swear in all of the pet peeves that I have, that has got to be in like my number ONE peeve. Move on and up outta MY shyt!

Sheesh. Nearly had a moment! lol

For real though: Old folk EVERYWHERE try to take OPP (Old People Passes) whereever they go. It's unreal how much they think they can get away with. And then when you tell them about how offended you are by THEIR recklessness, it's, 'YOU are soooo disrespectful'. Um...what? Did you hear what you just said to me? (or in this case: Do you have a right to butt into my conversation and give me your UNSOLICITATED (sp) advice?)

Okay okay Im done. lol

This is so true. People always butting in when no one is talking to them. Your blog got me laughing so hard but the reality of it is, you got these I-got-to-get-into-your-business-biddies everywhere (young and old).

Solomon said...

Yes they are everywhere, I myself just ignore them. They ain't got no business in my business anyway!

I have been out stalking the blogs and found yours...I am so glad I did! I liked your response as a 19 year old, you must have been tempted to haul off and revert back to a teenager. I must send you pats on the back for showing such restraint! Great blog, I think I shall become a follower today! Love from "Mrs. Slug" in Oregon

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
