Or do other people have THAT PERSON as well?

That Person who you irrationally dislike be they a celeb, someone you know, or a family member, the criteria being they are harmless and have done nothing to warrant your dislike of them except their very personality?

And you know that the fact you don't like them is really unreasonable but they make you absolutely seethe?

I have more than one blush

not BU. Happens to us all sweetie!

Personally I fucking hate Lulu. A whole career built on one crap song!

I work (in a voluntary capacity) alongside 2 people once a week who are both very needy in their own different ways. They are sweet and nice people, but they are so needy and just want to keep checking things with me.

When I give them answers to their problems, I try to encourage them to do things for themselves but they would rather I did it for them. By the time the day is over I could scream, they just don't want to seem to learn how to do certain tasks.

On the the way home I always feel guilty for feeling so irritated by them, and I know it sometimes shows

I felt that way about Robin Williams and then felt strangely guilty when he died.

Yes i do. Its a woman i have never met. Her child goes to the same school as mine so i see her on the school run/in playground and sometimes around town. Her DC is Much older, never had any interactions so nothing to do with DC but from the first time i saw her i just instantly disliked her. She was doing that teeth itchingly infuriating half assed "for show" parenting. Her DC was arseing about bolting onto the road and she was doing the "come on X, off the road" but not even looking at him, just carrying on chatting with her mates. Child took off up the street and she didnt notice for what seemed like ages. It was school pick up so cars everywhere. Since then i've seen her do the shittiest selfish parking on corners/driveways/school entrance etc. I've overheard her conversations and she is a whiny moan. And never ever cracks a smile. Always looks like someone just punched her kitten. And yet when i see her FB posts on mutual friends' FB pages she seems so nice and friendly. I find myself wondering how she ever managed to smile long enough to get someone to talk to her.

I suspect I may BE that person for some. Can sometimes really upset me as I don't know what I'm doing wrong. blush

looks like someone just punched her kitten

Hahaha grin

Amongst my DSis's friends these people were called a 'dry lunch'. No idea where this term came from, but we've all got them, people we hate for no good reason. YdefinitelyNBU.

DBs ex was definitely one for me. She never really did anything wrong but her presence generally just pissed me off. I also feel this way about Noel Edmunds. I'd really love to kick him in the knee.

Mine is a perfectly harmless woman who never the less endlessly shits on about her FitBit and her Muscle Whatever it is delivery (protein thing) and her so so sexy hubby who is sexier than anyone's hubby and her five star holiday were they made sure they took the time every day to work out and how much she loves the Kardashians and how watching X on TV made her cry and cry and....

SilverBirch if your irritation shows I'm concerned and not sure that working with vulnerable people is for you.

MunchMunch Sun 24-Apr-16 02:02:52

I really can't stand Duffy (female singer) I hate her songs and the crap Coke ad where she murdered the song! I even felt like punching her when I spotted her singing in the film Legends.

I have no idea why, it's totally irrational but there you go! I also have a few RL people that I hate but can't get into the reasons why with out an epic post. grin

RudeElf Sun 24-Apr-16 02:04:44

Where did silverbirch say she works with vulnerable people? confused

Baconyum Sun 24-Apr-16 02:07:22

Few celebs (who I obviously don't really know so that's unreasonable of me) and a few people IRL, but the ones IRL...I've been proven right!

Giggorata Sun 24-Apr-16 02:15:22

A comedian, I won't say who, because it is so irrational, I've switched off before I've heard any of his jokes, or heard him say anything at all. It's purely based on how he looks. Until recently, when he did something for charity on TV & turned out to be a thoroughly nice, bright bloke. Still don't like him, though, just more ashamed...
RL people, too, but based on slightly more information.

EverySongbirdSays Sun 24-Apr-16 02:16:31

Silver does not say she works with VP - when I was volunteering going back a few years now, the Lead Volunteer was so needy and high maintenance that 4 people i worked alongside quit. I still suspect now she is not NT just undiagnosed though, so I kept in touch and didn't just phase her out as others did

EverySongbirdSays Sun 24-Apr-16 02:18:46

I dislike Jack Whitehall - is it him? If yes, TOTALLY rational. He did this sketch show bloody ages ago which ripped the piss out of people with LD. Black mark against him in the Songbird house!

I am dreading someone describing me on this thread.

I dislike very nosey people they make me clam up.

MattDillonsPants Sun 24-Apr-16 03:59:17

Mine is a friend of a friend. She's a hippy-ish woman of 40 or so who has this weird demeanour where she FLOATS instead of walking.

Her arm movements are Kate Bush-esque ...everything she says or does is SO considered and ARRANGED that she must be bloody exhausted when she gets some alone time!

She winds me up so much but my friend LOVES her and thinks the sun shines out of her organic arse.

LadyCassandra Sun 24-Apr-16 04:10:05

There is a lady in my sports group who I find really annoying. Can't put my finger on what it is, she's very sweet and never mean to anyone. She is a little lazy when it comes to training but we're in an individual sport rather than a team sport so that shouldn't affect me, so I can't work out what it is.
Other people feel the same though, so it can't be totally irrational!

Sootica Sun 24-Apr-16 04:22:59

Myleene fucking Klass

Overconfident people who don't readily show their flaws I do not warn to so there's a whole group of alpha mums at school I dislike. And a posh girlfriend of DH's friend

Ickythumpsmum Sun 24-Apr-16 05:17:05


I know he's beyond talented. I love his music - he truly is brilliant. When I hear him talk on TV I feel the rage. I honestly feel like I would punch him in the face if I met him in the street, and don't even get me started on his wife.

I am aware this is completely assholish of me.

curren Sun 24-Apr-16 07:05:47

There are a few famous people that make me switch the channel.

I work in the fitness industry and a lot of work is on Instagram. I work with bloggers etc. One girl I just don't like, met her briefly still didn't like her. But oddly lots of people don't like her either. Just from her Instagram posts.

I did feel bad until I met her and she looked me up and down and told me I needed to squat more. confused

Pilgit Sun 24-Apr-16 07:20:16

Yes. There are quite a few! Although I am sure I'm on at least some of their lists too.... the worst though was a guy who has a really good friend of an ex boyfriend. He didn't need to open his mouth and I just wanted to scream at him! He was a total fantasist - told everyone he was a spy - which was about as likely as the Queen doing a striptease on live TV!

SlimCheesy Sun 24-Apr-16 07:20:51

i think I am one for someone! grin A father at school who I always smile at and say 'hi' but who scowls at me and/or rolls his eyes. I have never had an actual conversation with him, so not sure what his issue is. I find it a bit disconcerting!
