What offends you? Lately, I have been getting peeved off  for some odd reason. Maybe it's just hormones.

Anyway, I was just curious.

Interesting question...
I am offended by injustice, mistreatment of those that are unable to fight back, and I think most of all by people who have "opinions" about things that they have no knowledge about... regardless of the subject... and who will scream at the top of their lungs to make you forget they have no clue what they are talking about.
I am also offended by the infield-fly rule, Pete Rose is not reinstated, and that John Wayne was only ever given one Academy Award.
I tbhink that should cover it.

Not a lot does to be perfectly honest. Things annoy the hell out of me quite frequently but to be offended...nah. I'm offensive to some people but they get over it.

I'm not being rude. You're just insignificant.

I am offended by people who lie to me.  That tells me that they think I'm stupid.  What makes it even worse is when I do believe a lie, not because I'm stupid but because I trusted them.

I am also offended by the "know-it-all" types.  I can't stand people who think that their life, their information, etc. is SO MUCH MORE important than my (or anyone else) life....I hate when people don't listen....I take the time to listen, and if I have a friend who doesn't reciprocate, that offends me....

LOL I guess you caught me on a bad day....

Poet deVine, those are things that I think offends all of us, I wish we don't even have those.

Ringo, I agree wth you. I can't stand when people think they know what they are talking about but really have no clue, or who spread harmful lies. And, personally, I refuse to watch the Academy Awards anymore.

anonymousfemale, I don't think your offensive.  Unless you refuse to never shower. lol

KristieSue,  Never, ever let anyone tell you that you are stupid.  I have had that happen in my life and took it to heart.  Then I relaized where the sorce was coming from and and decided not to feel so bad after all.  Some people need to put others down to make them feel better about who they are.  

I think, for me, it is a fine line between being peeved off and being offended.lol  I guess lately it has been that way.  I live in a small town in Pennsylvania, populations about 8,000 if that.  Most everyone is either a blue collared worker, poor or retired.  I have no problem with any of these considering I am in the blue collared catagory.  I do however am annoyed with some people that are on welfare and wic yet have a huge swimming pool in their backyard.  They will buy a huge screen TV yet no shoes for there kids.  Some of them live better then most hard working Americans.  I happen to be the one that lives next door to almost all of them.  The way they abuse the system and our tax dollars OFFENDS me.


Don't get me wrong I have nothing against public asst.  However, I do have a problem with people that abuse it.  They work a job here or there, just enough to keep the goverment happy but not enough to be taken off welfare.  And there I am struggling to keep my head above water and they just bought a brand new living room set.  UGH!! give me a break.


Thanks everyone.

Inconsideration--

this seems like a simple thing, but as I was raised with thoughtfulness, so much so that the lack of such is not only offensive, but much to my naivety---a shock.

Manners are just rules for people who don't think of others--that is what I was taught anyhow.

Offends me? Lately, not much, but EVERYTHING irritates me to no end.  Why? Not a clue, but I hope I'm done with this moodyness soon. People are starting to avoid me now

If I love you enough will you feel it over the distance?

There isn't much that really offends.  The only one I can think of is lying to me. Lying is SO disrespectful there is no way it can't offend me.

Ok I thought of another one... LOL.  

I really really REALLY dislike ppl who are hypocrits.  I hate when somebody tells me or anyone they cannot do somethng, and then turn around and do the EXACT THING. I have very little tolerance for ppl like that. I see it happen here in the forums alot.. and I'm proud of myself for being a good girl and keeping my mouth shut about it *chuckles*  That is part of the reason I haven't been here as much.. but.. such is life

I don't get offended anymore, I'd rather not give the person trying that power.

I try not to offend people, I try to be tolerant of their beliefs and ideas, even if they don't align with my own, however there was one time when I hope I DID offend a particular person...
When I was in highschool a teacher yelled at me, 'you will never make anything of yourself and will get nowhere in life.' That stung. Years later I saw him again at a convention. I walked straight up to him and said, 'When I was your student you told me I would get nowhere in life, now I'm a teacher like you. Think about that." and I walked away with a big smile on my face.

The fact that society and peers expect me to grovel at every member of the opposite sex that has big 'jugs' and 'rumps'. Im a romantic, not a playa. I dunt care if you got da goods, I judge by your character (and your eyes. Eyes tell everything).

Ok this is easy - everything offends me:

1.  bad manners
2.  inconsideration for others feelings
3.  bashing of another persons' writing
4.  gossip
5.  giving up the fight
6.  organized religion
7.  wearing a mask
8.  lack of responsibility
9.  prejudice without knowledge
10. education without experience
11. being taken advantage of
12. the color orange
