Usually I don’t need help in deciding if something is annoying or not, because OBVIOUSLY everything is super annoying (related: everyone is also out to get me), but lately I haven’t been myself (although, bad news, I also haven’t been Angelina Jolie) and need some help getting my bearings. So I need your help in helping me decide if something that someone has been doing lately is annoying or super-annoying. Sorry, I mean, if it’s annoying or not annoying. Lives and bond applications and a career as a Snapped star hang in the balance, so I’d appreciate your honestly.
As always with I’m Right, You’re Wrong, I don’t tell you which party to the disagreement holds what position, so that you can judge the situation on its merits and not on the fact that I am your favorite.
Here we go!
Dilemma: Is it annoying when one party to a marital relationship, suddenly and for no good reason, starts walking around the apartment while brushing his/her teeth? For example said party may walk to the dresser to check his/her smartphone, all the while brushing, or watch the news on TV. Then that party, walks back to the bathroom sink, rinses, and gets some Listerine in his/her mouth and proceeds to circle the apartment again.
Disagreers: Marinka and Husbandrinka
Position One: Multi-tasking. Saves time.
Position Two: Nails on chalkboard have become so cliche, and this is a fun substitute. So. Annoying.
What do you think?
UPDATE: Thank you for everyone who answered or tried to send me a telepathic message. As you may have guessed, I’m in the annoying category. Hmm, it’s entirely possible that I need to reword that sentence. But my beloved Husbandrinka has recently started regarding teeth-brushing as a moveable feast, much like Paris, and walks around the apartment brushing his teeth. Over the festive holiday weekend I told him that I was going to ask the people who read my blog if it was annoying or not and he said, after spitting, “and ask them if it’s annoying when someone talks to you while you’re brushing your teeth, too” which makes me think that he and Dad’s Primal Scream are on the same wavelength.
