You know what really grinds my gears?

Everyone has that person that just seems to want to argue about ANYTHING. This is the person that will act like they know everything purely for the sake of telling you that you know nothing. Did you ask for their opinion? No. Did you ask to be corrected? No. Were you wrong in the first place? Who knows, maybe? What’s important is, you didn’t need that person’s opinion, and you sure didn’t need for that person to be a butthead about it either. And let’s say you are wrong all the time (a fair argument, I know). Do you honestly need to argue EVEN after you openly admit to having a faulty argument? NO.

It doesn’t matter what the subject is, they will literally fight you on whether or not the sky is blue. Often times, the argument doesn’t seem have room for other opinions.  Sometimes there’s not even time to defend your beliefs. At least, not when you’re arguing with an argument GENERATOR. You could have the most factual argument in the history of the world, but if there is a single misplaced period in your MLA source citation, prepare to have your whole fact base blown sky high.

Then, there are some people that will ask your opinion hoping to catch an opinion that they disagree with. You don’t want to argue about school. You certainly don’t want to argue about politics. What is the motivation behind this pointless bickering you may ask? I personally believe it’s all about being right. Sometimes a person will go out of his/her way to push you just a little bit too far, in hopes that you give up just to save yourself from a migraine.

I’m not saying that everyone acts this way, but it seems like the people who do are irritating enough to equal three different people. No matter what you’re trying to argue or state your opinion on, it seems like there is always going to be someone there who is just WAITING to argue with you on god-only-knows-what.  Don’t be that guy. Nobody likes that guy. That guy is a nuisance. That’s…
