    So, Just Give Suggestions.

    Ordering me around gets you nowhere and besides, it's disrespectful. If you have suggestions, that's fine. The moment a sentence starts or ends with "You Should..." or "You Will...", my brain shuts off. People "could" STFU :)

    To an extent* if I don't want to

    but I know I should I'll do it, but if I don't want to and I don't have to I'll get out of it somehow unless it would hurt someone else's feelings. If I'm in a "mood" and someone tries to boss me around I'll probably snap

    My Way

    I never give people the so called advice untill they ask me. I never tell people to do something unless I'm really in charge (a chairman, president, etc). It should make it clear that in return, I don't want people to tell me what to do. I do what I want. It has nothing to do...

    I really don't like being told to smile.

    I'll smile when I darn well feel like it! If I walked around with a giant grin all the time, I'd look insane. It reminds me of this story about a bet between the sun and the wind and whoever can get this guy to take his coat off first wins. So the wind starts blowing and...

    Especially by people

    who I have no respect for, I just want to snap and yell 'get off my back already!' but I can't. Unless I want to have even more problems than I already do, and well. I don't feel keen on being forced to visit psychologists. I hate authority so much... I just don't really like...

    Me, Too!

    Nobody can boss me around and just give me instructions the hard way. Unless he is my superior in the work. And I give my respect to those who is Senior that me and older that me. Otherwise, i have an ear like a white elephant.

    It's just really annoying,

    the way people tell you to do this and that it's as if my Mum just wants me to do chores all the time. I don't really like a CLEAN room if you know what I mean. Well, I am an Aries after all

    I Hate Being Told What to Do.

    I figured out that I didn't like being told what to do when I was a child. It was right around the time my sport coach told me how to do something and I quit the team instantly. It might be considered 'rash' but I hated it from the word go. I just feel that if I have to act a...

    "did I Ask You???"

    I have trouble taking advice when it sounds like a command. Eg: Me: I feel so tired, I could just come home from work today. Other: Stay at work and finish! Argh! Stuff like that makes me start to bubble inside. I don't care if you give your opinion. But say that IT'S YOUR...

    I am a "I do what I want" kind of person.

    I have my own perception on how I see things and how I view life and would greatly appreciate it, if people would stop trying to get me to believe otherwise. When you have a kid it literally seems like every illiterate dumb *** comes out of the wood work to tell you what to do...

    At my "new" job I'm getting stuck dealing with

    the other servers acting like I'm not doing things right or that I need help when doing things. Yet, I have worked at the exact same restaurant prior to working here. Just because I have my way of doing things doesn't mean I'm not doing it right. For example, if someone orders...

    I Don't Like Being Told What to Do, Or How to Feel

    Whenever someone tells me what to do or how I should feel, it produces a negative feeling inside of me, even when I know logically they are telling me for my own good! I found this really good article, on what to do, if you don't like being told what to...

    Only when I'm trying to do something my way

    rather than somebody else's way, if I'm open to being told what to do I'll be fine with it, but if I'm in the middle of something and a person just spouts instructions there is a high chance my temper will get the best of me and slap them hard, that or I'll tell them to stop in...
