    Massive Overreaction

    i used to work in a pub as a cleaner, and one morning i was about 10 minutes late.  i rushed in, and the landlady of the pub was absolutely hysterical because she thought i wasnt coming in, and she thought she would have to do it, and she hated cleaning.  As i got in, she let...

    I absolutely hate when people overreact,

    especially when they don't understand the situation completely. I was told to go on this chat app to join a group conversation my friends were having with some other people. Anyways, a girl had come in and was just watching our conversation.. so my friend had blocked her from...

    Just had another encounter with someone on EP

    who is way over-the-top sensitive. I asked one question and was promptly accused of being unkind. Then following my explanation for why I asked, I was told to get out of their profile (what? Hello, this is a public forum, you're on display to the entire planet!) and was accused...

    To Prove A Point

    I don't hate it when people overreact, in fact, I'm usually the one over reacting.  I'm a passionate person and when I see hypocrisy, or more proof that I'm being lied to... I just fricken hate it.  I hate having to come to terms with the people I think I know... and who they...

    Wow. I just got blocked by someone whom I was

    merely encouraging to think for herself and not let people put ideas in her head without understanding why she accepts them. I'd hate to think what would happen if I criticized her. She really got pissed and went off on some weird rambling tangent as if I was attacking her...

    Calm Down.

    I am a very anxious person, I worry about too much stuff.  But for some reason, I am always the one calm when other people are freaking out.  My mom is the queen of overreacting.  She just now got mad and stormed off because I couldn't wave my magic wand and make...

    I hate it when you do something small,

    and people end up screaming at you or giving the silent treatment. If you do something really bad, that's one thing. But you can't be upset by every little thing that people do.
