5 traits in humans that make me naar.

I know this list is much longer, but here are my top 5 for the past few weeks.

Drop me a comment to let me know if you think something big is missing.


We all know one (or a few) – “I can do ALL OF THIS” or “I know this famous dude” or “Oh you write a blog? That’s cute. Well I have been asked to write novels but am too busy”



That person that tells you about ALL THE HARDSHIPS that they have ever been through in the first 5minutes of knowing you and then throws in the “Oh but I am such a blessed person and so lucky”

Shush. Real hardships happen on idle Tuesday at 4 in the afternoon. Didn’t you listen to what Baz Luhrmann said?



These people are my favourite to blankly stare at. – “Oh well I am such a giver you know, that’s just how I am. Always taking care of other people.” “Ill always do my best to help anyone and everyone you know?”

Real kindness does not think its kind. It gets worn like an apron while dealing with others hardships and then hung up behind the door. It’s not a flashy dress that you show off to the world while you are helping someone.



Different to the boaster, this particular breed of douch recites his or her CV when you see them. EVERY.TIME. “Hi my name is dick and I am the CEO of Dreamland and I have a masters in bullshit management and Oh would you look at that? Here is my golden diploma of douchness.



People who respond in “K” to anything. They are a special kind of dick.  The worst of this species are the ones that say “K” to you in person. Use the “O” for goodness sake.  If you don’t use proper words speaking to me I am just going to stare at you.

    There are two things that aren’t exactly traits, but figures of speech, that are all too common here right now that I CANNOT stand. I wonder if you’ll recognize them as common there too?
    1. This one is found at restaurants, coffee shops, even fast food: when, after you order, your server responds with “no problem”. I know it’s no problem, I’m patronizing your business, and your job! (I know it’s not meant to be taken literally, but I find it annoying.)
    2. When you bump into someone accidentally, apologize, and they reply with “you’re fine”. I know I’M fine, I was actually apologizing because I hope YOU are fine. Saying “you’re fine” is the most common response these days, and it makes no sense to me. I have no idea how it started. A proper response is “it’s ok” or “that’s all right”!

      I am so glad I am not alone. No problem is an annoying one, I agree.

    I agree with your list. I would add the “me’s”. Those people that take about themselves all the time and also manage to bring the conversation back to them.

    Those holier-than-thou people on social media who always post negative stuff giving the impression that they somehow sit above ‘all of that’. No matter what you do, or how hard you try, you’re always rubbish because of that one thing you either do/don’t do or are ignorant about. Left wing vegans who read a lot of other left wing vegans theories (whose concepts go over most reasonably educated people’s heads) are guilty of this…

    Great blog post, and sadly the truth is that we know, have been and are still in contact with people like this on a daily basis!

    Great list! One of mine is “Look how charitable I am, I just bought this bracelet, badge, scarf to show how supportive I am”. If you have to show off about it, your heart is in the wrong place. Kind of ties in with your boasting and kindness folk above!
