    How can some people be

    so damn selfish? I don't get it... I simply need rent receipts from living with my ex-husband. That's all I'm asking for. I gave him everything in the divorce and walked away quietly... and I can't simply get a copy of our rent receipts? Really? I'm not sure if it's still a...

    I hate when someone says they've had a bad day

    and everyone, instead of trying to cheer them up, enters a competition of who's had it worse.

    Spoiled Selfish People Suck

    I just choose to spend my time with people opposite of that. I am a very generous and kind person, I don't enjoy the company of selfish people very much!

    I consider myself a patient person (especially

    where my close friends are concerned) but there comes a time when I have enough of the 'me-me-me-me' talk! I have problems too! We all have problems! It is ok to keep *some* thoughts/things to yourself. Full disclosure at every meet up is not imperative!

    There Are Some

    Some selfish people that will call You selfish because they don't want to admit that they are. I can be selfish but If you call me on it I won't get angry at You I'll just admit and apologise if i hurt You.

    Off With Their Heads!

    They need to realize that the world doesn't revolve around them.

    People like myself need to be encouraged to put

    her own needs first and to find a relationship that reciprocates. I have been way, way too selfless. A traumatic pattern of being a doormat, originating in being born as a very loving selfless person by nature, born to a severely neglectful and abusive mother and an absentee...

    I am repulsed by them.

    I have encountered many and our personalities don't mesh. I try to tolerate them but sometimes I feel we speak in different language and live in a different world. I have no tolerance for such people.

    You know those people

    that make everything about themselves and take everything for the literal meaning? Yeah I work with one, and if it wasn't for me she wouldn't have a place to live or a job. It's called shut up before you lose your only ride to work. Oh but wait, Five Finger Death Punch makes her...

    Browsing EP and disgusted by the many people

    who are actively in affairs. It's completely selfish to step out on your marriage without telling your spouse! If you are unhappy with your spouse, do something about it- communicate to them what is going on in your head. Nobody is a mind reader and I believe communication is of...

    Ego

    When someone is extremely selfish, it's an immediate red flag for me.It says to me, "This is a person who doesn't see the connection between himself and the rest of creation. This is a person whose ego is so inflated that he values himself and his own pleasure before that of...

    I have noticed more and more recently

    that society seems to be turning into people who are solely out for themselves without a single scrap of thought for others. A lot of people I come across have an inherently selfish nature- from something as minor as speeding up to not letting people out in traffic, to screwing...
