Day 3436: Irritations

I don’t want to be irritating, but have you noticed people experiencing and expressing more irritations lately?

Maybe I’m more keenly aware of trends in irritations because of all the people I encounter in my therapy groups and on social media.

This reminds me of something I read about irritations recently: “If you meet a jerk every month, you’ve met a jerk. If you meet a jerk every day, you are a jerk.” I’ve been quoting that in my groups, expressing my amazement at discovering that I am a jerk (which people don’t seem to find irritating).

What irritations can you find in my images for today?

People sometimes express irritation with the National Days (although most people seem to enjoy knowing about them). To celebrate today, I’m going to share a photo that demonstrates all of today’s National Celebrations.


Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “irritations.”

Feel free to express irritations or anything else in the comments section, below.

No matter what irritations I experience, I am grateful to spend another day on this earth with people who don’t irritate me, including YOU.

  1. I seem to be meeting more jerks these days as well, Ann. Uh-oh.

  2. if you see a jerk in the mirror….)

  3. It does feel to me like people are easily irritated. I almost think it’s become habit. I’m irritated by the sound of other people eating. Popcorn in a movie theater puts me on edge. LOL! But I work at it because I don’t want to be one of “those” people. 🙂
