All of us somehow enter the public environment at some point.
Whether it’s at the bank, supermarket, airport we are bound to get irritated by
someone who doesn’t respect the public domain.
We asked our Health24 users what irritates them the most.
This is what they had to say:
Matlhaba Ledwaba: When someone stops suddenly to converse with
another right in the middle of the street, and you get this 'who do you think
you are look' when asking them politely to make way.
Susan Tashiya: People who are so well dressed up, but
discard any leftover of what they were eating at anywhere else beside a bin,
that may just be few meters away. Then they demand cleanliness from somebody
Chewing a gum like someone clapping their hands.
Rosemary Pluke: When
you're walking to the bus stop after a long and
tiring day's work when you are confronted with either a "
pssssst" coming from a moving taxi or a "hello gor..jus"(obviously
toothless) that get's my blood pressure rising!
Rianna Wentzel: What annoys me is when I’m sitting on the train (after a long, hard day at the
office) waiting for it to leave the station
and the same guy (everyday) gets on begging for money for the night
Not only does it irk me to know that he got past the
barriers where everyone needs to show tickets, but he smells like he’s been
dunked in a bucket of offal and urine and left out to dry (yes, that’s how he smells!) It’s disgusting – and there are those who
will actually help him out (not like a night shelter will let you leave without
you at least having a bath and handing you a change of clothing).
Thabo: What really annoys me is seeing someone in a restaurant, of all places, digging their nose so freely, not bothered who is looking or where they are. My son said "sis" daddy look at that man he is digging his nose. Even my 5-year-old knows its improper.
