True & Honest Fan

Anyone who talks down to me like a child. It's a common theme with the left and all their cult bullshit lately, they speak to you like you are a simple minded neanderthal who is simply to uneducated to understand why a joke is akin to slavery 2.0. This attitude lets me know before they finish their first sentence that talking to them is a completely pointless endeavor and telling them to shut the fuck up will get to the same destination much faster.
if you focused this much on retarded grammar rules and constructs your accent probably sucks, which is honestly worse when trying to communicate with people.Right off the bat if you cannot speak English properly IRL, and your accent clearly betrays you as a native English Speaker, I'm disregarding whatever you have to say. It's not hard to follow the basic rules of grammar, nor is it hard to phrase what you want to say clearly and concisely, if you put half a second of thought into it. It results from speeding ahead and tripping over yourself, especially with "um," "like," "y'know," mutilating the basics of subject-verb agreement, noun-adjective agreement, and the syntax needed to get your point across. For all I care if you haven't thought out what you're going to say such that you avoid these mistakes, then whatever shit you're spewing is probably not worth my time.
T. Native Gaelic Speaker that had to learn all of this twice over. You can do it at least once.
O/T ALERTStaring at their smartphone any time they have a minute of free time. I notice this a LOT with co-workers and age doesn't really seem to factor in the equation. I see men and women of all ages do this, from teenagers all the way to 80-year old boomers.
Also, girls - seeing your face glued to your smartphone is a huge turn-off. It makes you look vapid and superficial. Stop it.
Garrulousness.I can understand the sentiment. If someone is talking about discipline but they can’t stop stuffing their face it can be infuriating. It can also be hard to think if someone smells like garbage.
That being said, I don’t disregard what anyone says because even if it’s not correct, it often reveals something useful about themselves. You never know when someone can do you a solid or be of help. So, it’s useful to know what a person thinks, believes, and how they behave so you can approach them as diplomatically as possible. Sure, there are people who disgust me, primarily individuals whose only identity revolves around something tribal like a particular sports team, politics, or consumerism. Personally, I prefer well rounded and traveled individuals who have lots of interests and don’t have a black or white view of the world. It’s not that I hate politics or fandoms but I dislike people whose only identity is a singular political view or interest, and they paint their whole world via that singular obsession. However, even if I think someone is saying something batshit insane I’ll listen to them, if for nothing else but to understand where they’re coming from or for the lolz. Knowing what people think about the world is useful even if their conclusions are completely wrong. I’m not bothered by people being dumb and I don’t get fussy about being wrong myself. Furthermore, people like to be listened to. Most of the battle of getting someone to like you is to show interest in what they have to say. I’m not saying it’s best to be a Machiavellian prick, people can often tell when you’re insincere, but I think it’s foolish to burn bridges needlessly. It isn’t that hard, just actively listen, swallow your pride and/or disgust, and ask questions to guide them along. This is especially true of autists who are intelligent but don’t realize they still have an emotional need to socialize.
I am also under the assumption that I don’t know everything and every person I talk to knows more about something than I do. It could be something professional like plumbing or sales, or it could be information about a state, city, or country I’ve never been to. In the end, I try to learn something useful from everyone I interact with because you never know when or what they say can be useful.
