what do you do...

...when u realize that someone you were talking to was trying... really trying, to annoy you. and is now annoyed themselves. bcoz you didn't get annoyed.
in fact, you didn't even realize the attempt. but then, it's been brought to your attention by a mutual friend. and u're amused, at the most. by how much effort ppl need to put in simply to annoy you. and fail to understand why it would be worth the effort.

what do you do, then? do you...
a. go ahead and remain unaffected... annoying the person who was trying to annoy you.
or
b. pretend to be annoyed and let the person be happy with their cheap thrills.

hmm... the nonsensical quirks of human beings!

edited to add:
here's what i do: i blog about it, knowing fully well that said friend reads this space. and is going to be more annoyed now. THAT is how I get my cheap thrills. sulk not, my friend! such is life! :)

oh what? did i read it right? that someone tried on purpose to annoy you? HAHA...why would anyone want to do something like that.....

i would vote for option A ;-)...you know, stay calm, don't get annoyed and let that annoy that person...maybe i sound mean, but i think it will be fun that way ;-)

//pretend to be annoyed and let the person be happy with their cheap thrills. //
Guess this is the best way ! But is it possible !!Or will encourage the person to get more thrills by repeating it more often..Now ,I am asking a question instead of answering..lol..Perhaps best to ignore a barking dog & at best not look into its eyes as they say..Hmm

Option A if u want to get a kick n ur not exactly fond of the person !

option B if u think the person is actually nice but is going thru some crazzy times!

Depends... Like you said, you can keep calm (and blog about it) to pay them back with interest, if it's a really good friend. Or ignore if you don't care much.

Or seem to get annoyed, if it is a special someone. You never know what they have planned to de-annoy you ;)

eh...?!

Suruchi said...

LOL!! someone actually thought he could annoy you!!

Anish said...

there is little or no satifaction in doing this....and there is a lot or too much angst in failing to (annoy) ..... there is little or no point in wondering about it...and only "cheap" thrill in building it up (like u said).....it is one of those things you wake up next day and wonder you should not have done...no ? :)...why govern our lives by someone else's annoyance.

anish: sometimes things are just as frivolous as they seem. it's all in good humour. :)
and no, there's no "governance of life" happening. don't think this p'lar instance warrants as much thought. nice to see you here, tho.

suruchi: oh, well! it takes all kinds no? ;)

amey: special someone in my life knows EXACTLY how to annoy me. he's a pro. he sometimes does it even without wanting to! :D

pavi: yeah.. person's nice. friend, actually! :D

keshi: sometimes it's nice to let someone feel happy by thinking they annoyed you... :) esp since this IS a good friend. but well, i shoulda known before! :D

CU: wisdom there. and yeah, i like the advice. good to see you back here :)

@ all: you're AS evil i think you all are! :D
p.s.: sorry... not individually replying to all... kinda short on time.. will come back later and get to it!
