    My gran - she will talk right over me and make it obvious she isn't listening to what I'm saying. She can also be quite stubborn, everything has to be her way or the highway. She is very highly strung too and makes you the same as well after a while. I love her and she is a great person but everyone has their flaws

    My mom disturbing me, especially when I am trying to sleep/relax. So inconsiderate especially since she doesn't like when people do it to her.

    Like I type really fast and she would blame the sound of my keyboard for waking her up.

    When in actuality, you woke yourself up.

    That's about it.

    My mum tends to assume a load of things when I say something really small to her, and its negative a lot of the time. E.g. if my friend is 20 mins late she will say something like " well maybe she doesn't value your time". omg...chill out.

    She's also really sensitive, so takes offence to everything. So you can't be sarcastic or tease her without her taking it to heart.

    My dad just thinks of me as a child and will still come into my room at 10pm and turn off my light saying I need to go to sleep...I'm 24 years old, give me a break.

    Dear mother will come to visit and point out all the things she doesn't agree with or that she thinks I'm doing incorrectly. I once had to remind her that as she was in my house we would be doing things my way.

    My father is famously poor at timekeeping. He will without fail be at least 20 minutes late to everything.

    I'm doing something somewhere in the house. Someone opens the door and comes into the room for whatever reason. When they leave they just leave the door wide open even though it was closed before they came in, forcing me to get up and shut the door.

    My brothers were pretty bad for this.

    My mum always asks "stupid" questions knowingly as she knows it irritates me to high heavens.

    Also, they open all of my mails.

    My sister likes to over talk me :hmmm: Like last time we had a plumber to check the bathroom and as she asked me to explain the situation to the plumber, once I've started, she started too :erm: I ended up going to my room annoyed :erm: To be honest, either one or another speaks, not both at the same time :facepalm: Or if I talk on the phone on behalf of her, she sits and comments or talks as well and then blames me that I can't communicate over the phone .... I can't listen to 100 voices at the same time :erm:
