#AtoZChallenge DAY21: U for UMBRAGE

Day: #21 || Alphabet : U || Theme: Emotions || Word: Umbrage


We are into the final sprint of the ‪#‎AtoZChallenge‬..say whattt!! Just six more alphabets to go including today’s and the energy feels the same as the first day.

So for today’s alphabet am gonna make this one a more personal kinda post and am gonna talk about an emotion which is kinda similar to one before I had discussed(Irritated)  and that is UMBRAGE


Before i begin, the difference between being irritated and umbrage is that the latter is a more serious one and tends to hurt you  most of the times or just amplifies your emotions to a whole new level. Most of the times it’s on the offensive side as well. So you get the meaning now huh?  If yes, then here i go with 25 things that annoys me the most and makes me feel like UGHHH!!! (cause killing is illegal and so if physical violenc)


1. When i text a whole paragraph specially when something very serious and the opposite person replies after ages saying “k” or “hmm”
2. When someone uses abusive language specially during arguments
3. People asking for justification for the choices i make rather than respecting it
4. Being ignored – this is not cause the opposite person is busy but i am actually being neglected and ignored
5. When people continue to talk to me even though they can see i have earphones plugged in
6. When i am not interested to talk and still forced to continue conversation just for the sake of it
7. People commenting anything about my family(and you are so dead)
8. Men urinating in public – i just feel like punching them right on their face. Just because you can hold it straight and aim standing at some corner you have the liberty to do that
9. People judging me even without knowing the human being i am in person
10. People who drag their feet, and continue doing it even after being told about it
11. Faking over facebook – all those lovey dovey pics and knowing that there are also friends in your list who know whats happening in your personal life then why the superficial romance? Don’t discuss your personal bedroom problems with your friends and the next day you upload a profile pic with your wife or husband with too many kisses and hugs and other emojis
12. People talking at the top of their voice specially personal talks in a public transport. I have no interest listening to your personal life story duh!
13. When “woman” use feminism as a means to gain sympathy and actually demean the word which is so powerful and stands more for equality irrespective of the gender
14. When women and men are discriminated at workplace, for example women can’t stay back after 8pm in offices but men can no matter its the woman who has slogged her ass in that project
15. Couples with kids talk about diapers and play school all the time and the friends who are single or newly married have nothing to contribute
16. People don’t make an effort to be in touch but say they have maintained friendship cause you are still friends on Facebook
17. People at ATM’s who take a lot of time and simply waste time of everyone else for example – i have seen people(again mostly woman – why why do you make a fool of yourself lady??) first check their balance then withdraw money and then again check the balance so total of three transactions and all this while am standing out of the queue arguing with my male colleague that women arent that technologically dumb
18. This one i am offended the most – when people ASSUME things in their own shitty head and then don’t even bother to clarify or confront me and decide on their own what i am thinking
19. When people misunderstand a No for a Maybe! Trust me every woman knows when its a YES, a NO and when a MAYBE
20. People honking for no damn reason on the road!Ughhhh
21. When people don’t say a thank you and sorry when it actually needs to be said
22. People who send forward messages specially the ones saying – forward this to another ten people or something bad will happen to you!
23. People taking me for granted, a weak attitude doesn’t mean i don’t have a say !
24. When I am made to wait. I avoid making people wait(unless it’s the traffic in bangalore)
25. Men not knowing what PMS is all about. When you learn the physical attributes of woman during your growing years it’s important you learn what PMS is .And when a girl says she is not keeping well instead of the exact detail like cold or fever etc then please understand its that time of the month and she is being cranky don’t just keep asking what happened

So did mine match any of the things that annoys you? Let me know what is that annoys you the most and how do you deal with it? Happy blogging until then lovely people!!! \m/ peace love and hugs <3

  1. This was a good read. I could relate to so many, special mention to 11 😉
    Best way to deal with something that annoys me is ‘to ignore’ 🙂

    1. Glad you liked it! 🙂 Yeah ignorance is bliss

  2. //5. When people continue to talk to me even though they can see i have earphones plugged in// does this mean you arent respecting the other person when they want to tell you something?

    1. I thought u were intelligent enough to understand what I was trying to say? it simply means people talk to me knowing that I wont be able to hear them cause of the music being played in my ears. This happens more at workplace. Hope u get it now??? 🙂

      1. i thought you would accept the change in the opinions gracefully ..but nah. ok they might have something important to share.. so then you wouldnt be so kind enough to unplug your earphones for a moment to listen ??

        1. i am accepting the opinion…just that u didnt understand my point. its obvious when someone is trying to talk to me i would unplug and listen to them..u still didnt get what i was trying to tell so lets just agree to disagree there.

  3. i hate being abusive.. im with you in this ..

  4. honking has become an attribute of a typical bangalorean . less patience

    1. less patience agreed… bt sometimes there is no other option also besides honking atleast in bangalore

  5. I could identify with several of them but I think the one that annoys me most is the same as yours, #18! Can’t believe the challenge is almost over! Can’t believe I’ve actually stuck with it!

    1. Thanks Gayl for stopping by 🙂 Yeah just four more days to go i was not sure at all if i would be able to complete it. And yeah #18 for both of us..so cheers to that!! Happy blogging

  6. This post was so relatable. Hi-five for the uugghhh!!!
