There Are Some People Who…

… Simply don’t want to get the message

Every one of us has been in situations where we want to avoid a person, but aren’t able to do so. The person concerned continues with their antics until they force you to respond.

This irritating lot belongs to the desperate for attention category, and suffers from the “look at me” syndrome.

The only thing they are interested in is the fact that they would like you to notice them, and they will stop at nothing to ensure that.

The fact that you find this attitude irritating or are trying to avoid them, is the least of their concerns. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t interested in either responding to them or getting engaged in a conversation.

What they want, they end up achieving, even if it is you who has to pay the price for it.
