6 Types Of People That Drive Me Crazy

Last updated on December 9th, 2019


If I were to ask you, “Are there certain types of people that drive you crazy?”

You would most likely say, “Yes!”

Do not worry. You are not alone; we all are driven crazy by certain types of people β€” people whom we would rather avoid at all cost.

And, I am going to tell you about the types of people that drive me crazy.

1.) People Who Are Always Late

At an early age, I learned that punctuality is a discipline.

During my schooldays, I had to be early for school and if I turned up late for no good reason, I would face the wrath of my schoolteacher, the dean of discipline, or the school’s principal.

And, in my adulthood, I had no choice but to show up early at my place of employment; reaching late would have resulted in having my paycheck altered for the worst, taking a lot of heat from the company’s supervisor or manager (And, if that sort of thing happened too often, I would end up being fired).

If I could learn how to be punctual, other people can learn how to be punctual too.

Now, I am fully aware of the fact, that people can get stuck in traffic, or find themselves back home to retrieve something that they forgot.

But, when a person is always late, it shows that they are horrible at time management and that their life is topsy-turvy.

I hate it when people tell me to meet them for a certain time and they do not show up for the time that we both agreed upon and when you call them on their mobile phone to inquire about their whereabouts, they tell you, “I am now leaving home.”

2.) People Who Think That They Are Always Right

We all encountered people who thought that they were always right; it might have been in the form of a friend, a parent, a boss, or the neighbour across the street, etcetera.

From experience, I know that it is a waste of time for those types of people to be open-minded; especially when you are discussing something that is opposite to what they believe.

It is a waste of time talking to them about religion, spirituality, philosophy, psychology, etcetera (Unless, they happen to think similarly to you).

From a realistic point of view, we all have gaps in our knowledge; we do not know everything. A person who possesses a Ph.D. in physics may not necessarily know how to go about preparing a simple meal.

A person who thinks that they are always right is obviously living in a state of self-delusion.

3.) People Who Steal

No one would knowingly do business with a thief because there is a high probability of purchasing stolen goods from them.

And, believe it or not, thieves would even go as far as to steal from their friends.

The majority of us know, that stealing is an immoral act (And, that it is illegal too).

There is a proverbial dark shadow that always follow people who steal; which is the reason why I want nothing to do with them.

People love to beat up thieves and if I am around in the same place that the thief is in, they may wrongly think that I am another thief and beat the hell out of me too.

I once knew a thief who lived in the same neighbourhood as I. People where always looking for the thief, because he regularly stole items from the people within the community.

Also, thieves do not care who they steal from. If they know that they can get away with stealing your personal belongings, they will do it.

4.) People Who Lie

We all know people who lie.

Liars are no fun to be around, because they enjoy telling untruths about people.

Liars cannot be trusted because they will lie their way out of a situation. They will deny ever saying or doing something even though there were dozens of witnesses around when the incident took place.

Then there are those people who lie to impress others; such as, telling people that they live in the rich side of town when they really live in an impoverished area.

There are people who lie so convincingly, that people are mesmerised by every word that they say (Con artists fall within this category).

Do you like being lied to?

Of course not!

Nobody likes being lied to!

Liars are a nuisance to themselves and they are also a nuisance to society.

5.) People Who Never Keep Promises

I had friends who promised to do certain things (They never kept their promise).

If you lent someone a small (or large) sum of money and they promised to pay you back, you would expect them to keep their promise.

Now, the God’s/Goddess’ truth is that some people will genuinely forget the promises that they made to others (Those are whom you can forgive).

Then there are those people who knowingly break their promises (Those are the ones that you should not trust).

Personally, I will not make a promise if I know that I would be unable to follow through with that promise.

People should stop making vain promises.

6.) People Who Are Impolite

We all hate impolite people.

A lot of us were brought up to be polite and courteous to others; but there are those people who have refused to put it into practice.

Do you know what it is like to tell someone, “Good morning,” and they acted as though you did not exist?

Do you know what it feels like to be shoved out of they way by someone who never gave an apology?

Do you know what it feels like when someone utters a rude remark to you?

I have experienced those things in the past (And, maybe you did too).

Impolite people can send us crazy if we dwell too much on what they did or said to us.

Impolite people should be sentenced into taking a mandatory course in human relations.

  1. I agree with how you categorized people. I can add next category: pretenders. Double-faced people are the worst species. I faced such people at my workplace, they will put a knife in your back and ask you how are you doing.

  2. I don’t hate anyone, I do discount the ones mentioned here and in the blog. I am really down on hypocrites that go to church on Sunday and talk the talk, and not walk the walk.

  3. These are all my bug bears and as for false promises I have had a lot of those, including this year, which also happened again when I needed it most. (You will remember possibly when I talked about fucking coffee promise.) So from that, I am doing quite a few cut offs from these so called family. Friends have been more family these last few years than family.

  4. I think you nailed it, Renard. The only types of people who drives me crazy that you didn’t specifically mention are those lemmings who blindly follow Donald Trump and believe all of his lies, or worse yet, know that he’s a POS, but still, inexplicably, support him. Sorry to get political on you, but those people really do drive me crazy.

  5. That’s a good list Renard. I try and distance myself from people who have those types of character traits. I tend to avoid them where possible and keep interactions minimal if they are nesacerry.

  6. lol – I just love people.
    I am aware of who is habitually late (public transport can make anyone late occasionally, but some of my friends are very manana manana).
    I don’t think anyone drives me crazy.
    However, racism, aggression cruel gossip etc – they are quite another matter. I would speak up and explain that kind of behaviour is unacceptable.

  7. I agree with this list. I don’t like people who are NEVER punctual. I’ve encountered so many of them in this lifetime. Although as much as I detest their habit, I still appreciate the ones who are honest about their whereabouts and ETA, just like the one you gave as an example β€” the one who would say he’s just leaving his home. (Of course, this could still be a lie).

    I mostly get angry at the ones who would still be at home, perhaps even yet to take a bath, and yet they’d lie that they’re in a bus or just a few minutes away.

  8. Dear Renard, in South Florida, nobody is ever late. That’s because we have several different types of time: Standard Jewish time, which is 30 minutes late, and don’t you dare show up in someone’s house before the 30 minutes are up, because they are not ready and will be flustered; Standard Latin time, which is an hour late, and if you issue invitations for mixed company, you actually put different times on them; and finally, Standard Caribbean time, AKA “catch you later time.” The one kind of time that doesn’t exist here is the one shown on the clock.
    Yes, it was driving me nuts when I first moved here, but one gets used and adjusts. As to impolite (rude) people, some of them are incorrigible, and I find it better to avoid them, if at all possible.

  9. Types of people I don’t like: Those who talk too loud, too fast, and way too much. Those who wear loud cologne. Those who don’t wear deodorant. Those who poke you when they talk. Those who squeeze you to death with hugs you don’t want. Those who are condescending toward me and others. Those who are feminist and chauvinistic. Those who can’t forgive a wrong. Those who dump all their problems on me and others. Those who think the world owes them a living, plus the 6 things you mentioned and a whole lot more. But I’m stopping here. Great post, Rernard!

  10. I fully agree with not standing people who think they’re always right. Me personally, I would say people who swear excessively. Once in a while is fine, but when every other word someone says is a swear, that I can’t be around.

  11. People who offer services with their email address as a contact point and then they seem to hardly ever check or return their emails

    This type might not be exactly in line with the spirit of this post, but just been trying to contact someone and their emails aren’t being answered and don’t have alternative contact details
