The Hater: I hate people who…

…misuse busy people’s precious time. One of these days I may be forced to start moving around with a big stick. Some people really forget that some of us have serious work to do.

…misuse busy people’s precious time.

One of these days I may be forced to start moving around with a big stick. Some people really forget that some of us have serious work to do.

For example, I recently jumped onto a motorcycle for a quick ride to a destination but along the way, the crazy motorcyclist stopped to greet an old acquaintance of his and this took more than five minutes.

I was so riled by this sudden action of time wasting that I almost removed my helmet to bite the fool in the neck like a vampire. These people need to understand that the customer is king even when it is a woman! Yes she is king! Ok, Queen.  

…are always wearing their ID tags everywhere they go.

The corporate world seems the way to go and so workers are expected to wear ID tags around their necks like exotic dogs! The trouble I have with some of these people is that they forget to remove the tags once out of the office.

Why on earth do you think I am interested in knowing whether you are a procurement officer when we meet in the taxi?

I met one such fellow in a restaurant and I was about to tell the fellow to get me more meat when I realised the ID tag he had belonged to a bank not the restaurant!

The good thing about my work is that I do not need such badges to get to work. I always hate you with or without a badge and I do not need an office as well.  

…think that carrying an umbrella in this rainy season is a luxury.

There is a way in which African weather makes our few qualified meteorologists to appear incompetent by changing as it wishes. Well, there are signs that the rains are around and it could be wise to carry an umbrella these days.

But The Hater is having issues with people who choose to let the rain soak them before entering a taxi dripping like a homeless dog. And annoyingly these are the same people who jump onto a taxi full of sweat when it is shinning.

I am praying for the day snow comes around to give these fools a lesson for life. Next time carry an umbrella even if it is one of those huge ones found at bar tables!

…think it is cool to pick their noses in public.

I must admit that this habit is so disgusting that I almost throw up in front of my dedicated Dell machine. The mere thought of this habit drives me nuts.

Those people who do not even deserve mention in such a newspaper have got an annoying habit of pushing one of their fingers up the nose to bring out the nastiest substances that nature has in store.

Some even have the crazy guts of looking at what they have just mined out of their noses! For sure, I think I need a firearm to deal with these people especially when they attempt to offer me a handshake soon after!

…wear attention grabbing ‘cheap’ shoes.

It is not easy to determine whether these shoes cost much but I have this feeling they don’t. As The Hater, I am starting to hate so much all those females (and some males) who wear shoes that make a lot of noise as one moves.

There are certainly better ways of seeking attention than disrupting national peace by knocking on the floor with cheap footwear. I think such people should stick to the basics and do without shoes in order for sanity to prevail.
