Default Sh*t people say

What are the most annoying things that people say to you?

This, as a service dog handler and someone who isn't outwardly disabled, is all too familiar.

Nothing quite that obnoxious, but I think if I hear "does the carpet match the curtains" one more time I'm going to go medieval.

Nobody asked me that when I was a redhead.

Then again I had a mean look about me then. And rightly so would've knocked their teeth out.

Ah, so many things.

Why do you want to help animals but not people?

Why would you move so far away from your family for a boy?

Why don't you just get a job?

(Reality: my immigration status is not worked out so that I can legally work, but people STILL do this after it is explained to them and it makes me want to punch them in the mouth area)

I always tell people that if my tattoos are my biggest regret, then I lived a pretty good life.

No problem, I'll just tell my date to forget about it.

"Your veganism is a choice, you shouldn't force it on people."
You are absolutely right, it is a choice, but my choosing to bring a vegan side dish is not me forcing it on you. Apples are vegan, do you not eat apples?

"Your dad/brother/uncle/relative is a weirdo/screw up/freak/poser."
What, what, and more what? Why are you telling me this? I don't give a rats ass what you think of them. It's not because I like them more than you, it's because this comment is so totally out of place and disrespectful, and puts me in an awkward position. We are not so close that you can say sh!t like this.

EDIT:

"Is it your time of the month?"
One day I just want to be like "I was born without a uterus asshole!!" My emotional state is not dependent on my period. I know some women do have serious hormonal/emotional issues with their period, but I do not. And when I kick you in the ass, it's not because I'm "riding the crimson wave" it's because you are a ****tard.

Also, jokes that a female President couldn't do the job right because she'd be deploying nukes once a month will get you strangled.

Drew Peterson talking about his wife asking for a divorce because of her menstrual cycle. I wanted to kill him. What an effed up thing to say.

Because for one thing, people can have a bad day even when they're not hormonal. And for another thing, I KNOW when I'm hormonal and I take special care to be nice those days.

I hate most songs by Katie Perry, but the worst one is "Hot and Cold." Because she insults the guy TWICE in the first two lines by calling him a girl. "You change your mind like a girl changes clothes, and you PMS like a b*tch I know." Why not just say, "I hate you because you're a girl." Seriously?

"You're Hispanic? Wow, you don't sound like it!"

I've gotten that several times, and I hate it. It's amazing how many people think that all Hispanics sound like a George Lopez stand-up. Accents are not genetic! Good lord, I don't even know how to speak Spanish! Why in the world should I have a Spanish accent?

I work in entry level construction in a tower so every morning we all squeeze into elevators to be carted off onto the floors (ratio of women to men is 55-1200) So sometimes my butt is inadvertently backed into some dudes' crotch. I've heard "Oh, that's just my hammer/marker/pen/drill/pipe/caulking gun in my pocket/toolbelt so many times. hur dur dur, clever boys.

WAIT a minute... Your tongue is pierced?!
I think that's hot, though I might be bias since TJ has his done and man oh man... ok I'll stop lol.

I think people saying stuff about you (or anyone's) ethnicity, is kind of rude.
I'm white. White as snow and paste. And when people ask me about having kids, I tell them if for some reason I cannot have kids (lots of problems in the family that seem to be hereditary) I tell them I want to adopt a mixed baby.
Let me tell you, the looks I get makes me want to punch people.

Then I get asked "Well how would your boyfriend like that? He doesn't seem like the kind of guy to want to adopt a mixed child, he must not tell you he is racist."
That right there makes me snap. TJ is a country/redneck guy, he looks like it and makes it known. But because of that he is automatically racists. Stupid @ss people.

Oh when Bear was alive, I always got asked what mixed he was. I would say he is a Scottish Terrier, not a mix. I actually had a woman YELL at me and CUSS at me because SHE was convinced Bear was a mix. I walked away. She was irritating me.
