Run...when you see these kinds!!

There are some people who make life worthwhile and then...there are some who make you want to run miles – away from them….! They can be your family, friends, colleagues, or people you just know. But they can be a pain in all the wrong places, and make you wonder why you bothered with them in the first place! Here are 5 types of people, whom if you happen to spot- Run…just run and don’t turn back….later don’t tell me that I didn’t warn you!

1.The agree-me-nots- 

These are the people who will never agree with what you say. Anything you opine will elicit an equal and opposite opinion from them. They love to contradict, and whether they actually agree with you in their hearts, at least sometimes, you will never know. It is like a game to them. They will differ on every subject you breach, and it will make you wonder if they just do it to put you off! From the mundane to the exquisite, they will have an opinion on everything and will do their best to make you feel like you know nothing! These people consider themselves to be God’s greatest gift to mankind, and presumably have very high opinions of themselves. 

2.The Photo Negatives

I call them the photo negatives because their colours, like those in a negative, are inverted. These people will find a problem in every solution. You just cannot convince them, they have a counter argument to every argument and a negative view to every positive one, and prefer to see the world as black. You cannot even offer them a glass of water, without them telling you, how water makes them feel bloated. Every advise or solution you give will be met with, Oh no, I cannot do that because.." They will give you the impression that the world is out to get them and will suffocate you with reasons why they are in such deep shit.

3.The Sugar Coated Pills- 

They will kill you with their smiles and later with their statements. While you have been fooled into thinking that they have your best interests in mind, they will quickly take out their sharp and pointed daggers and lunge it into your heart. You must remain alert at all times, because you never know when they will turn an entire conversation against you. You will have to learn to look beyond their deceptive smiles and their double meaning words and double edged swords. 

4.The leaking taps- 

Nothing stays in their leaking mouths. Every word you utter will be passed on with salt and spices to the next living thing they meet. You will soon find casual utterances turning explosive, or find yourself being misquoted every now and then. They love to bite behind your back, and you will have to learn to keep your mouth shut at all times when they are around, if you don’t want to get into trouble.

5.The Poor Souls-

These are the people who think God always hands them a raw deal. They will make you stall all your work, and give them a patient hearing, and ask for your opinions. Once they have your sympathy and your ear, they will hound you at all times with their problems, without boundaries on time and people and even get upset if you don’t make space for them in your life. They will accuse you of being "like all other people". They pity themselves so much that they make themselves seem like the most unfortunate people in the Universe.


  1. I loved this list, have met all 5 of them and you are right all of them are misfits and ungrateful!!
    Nicely done!

  2. Please add your twitter handle to you twitter button @titli17 so its easier to share and you will be able to retweet too. thanks.

  3. Oh yes, I have known people who fit all of these descriptions! One former (notice I said "former") friend would offer a litany of complaints every time we met. Often the same ones! It got to the point where I could recite them by rote. :P
    Toxic people are everywhere and should be avoided whenever possible. Life is too short! Thanks for the insight. ☺

  4. Yes, yes, yes! I too have known people in these categories, I really like how you describe them so perfectly :) Great post, Titli, and written in the interest of human race and our collective sanity!

  5. Spot on!!! If I have pick one of the devil... it's the poor souls that I would absolutely avoid.

  6. NOW I know why you run from me :) I am all five :)

  7. Met all the people you've mentioned on your list in these sixteen years. And truly, I too will advise any one to stay away from such characters! Totally negative souls who suck out the positivity out of your life!

  8. Ha ha ha - that was one fun post. I'very met them all - the leaking taps, the photo negatives... ha ha. Loved it Parul.

  9. Hahaha..I have met most of these types, but have come across the leaking taps and the sugar coated pills more often than the others. Perfect description. :P

  10. Shubhangi ma'am, This is a great post with so much relatable human behaviors Lol...

    Yes, there are people who will never agree maybe because they think a bit different than others or purposely contradict others. I guess the sugar-coated pills are the most dangerous ones...

    OMG I can't stop laughing. Seems like I met a poor soul just today. Lol...

    You're such a creative writer. This post brought a laughter and smile on my face. Thank you and have a great week ahead. :)



At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person..deep gratitude for those who have lighted the flame within me!! your comments will be appreciated..
