Someone reading something out to me, like from a website or a newspaper. When they say "Hey, listen to this..." and then read out the story - it drives me insane. I have no idea why. A friend of mine has a habit of doing it with jokes he finds on the internet and that drives me even more insane.oh, i see you know my father! this drives me crazy - i tell him "dad, i can read! if i see something interesting in the paper, i just read it myself!"
Heh. I like that tack, I might try and take it myself next time.
My reading-out friend loves to read me out jokes that people have sent him in texts, on his phone. It drives me insane. He knows I don't like jokes, and I like them even less when someone reads them out to me and the delivery is lacking. The exchange usually goes like this:
Joke-Reading-Friend: *opens text, starts laughing*
Me: *tries not to encourage*
JRF: "Hahah. Bob's just sent me something really funny."
Me: "Oh, that's nice. *beandip, beandip*"
JRF: "You'll like this one"
Me: "But see, no, I won't"
JRF: "You will!"
Me: "Please don't read it out"
JRF: "Oh go on, just this one"
Me: "No. Please, we've had this conversation a million times. Don't read it to me"
JRF: "But it's really funny!"
Me: "I won't find it funny"
JRF: *starts reading*
JRF: *is still reading it out five minutes later*
Me: *repeatedly banging head against wall*
You get the picture, I'm sure.
I really have no idea why he feels the need to do this, but it drives me insane.
