Why the fuck would that be annoying!?


#3

#4

Because nobody tells eric what to do yeah? He’s his own maaaaaan man.


#5

You should do


#6

there’s gotta be a few misanthropes who’ll side with me. epimer? sad? anyone/???


#7

Oh no?


#8

totally with you on this. I take all small pieces of advice like this as a personal insult


#9

phew!


#10

You’re a monster :joy:


#11

I mean, I’m genuinely not sure what bit is potentially annoying here, is it the fact you had to run the tap for a second or the fact that a human being spoke to you without your express permission or what?


#12

was it the way she said it or something? because the information she’s given you is just useful isn’t it, why would it be annoying?


#13

just to hone that a bit: I think it’s when someone advises me to do something that I was going to do anyway. can’t bear it.


#14

just tell em to brown off.


#15

very poor joke


#16

i generally do my best to avoid any form of unnecessary social interaction and i’m still struggling to see how this well-intentioned bit of advice could possibly be considered annoying…


#17

to road to hell is paved with well-intentions


#18

ah yeah, this makes sense. I do get wound up a bit being told to do something I’m already in the process of, but I don’t think this particular example would bother me


#19

but wouldn’t 100% of people run the tap anyway whether she’d been there or not? i’m not going to fill my bottle up with hot water am i?


#20

not now she’s helpfully told you not to, no
