humor for the annoying


A good friend of mine has a friend who is an annoying combination of confidence, flirtation, and goofiness. Not a good combination, which inevitably leads to the annoyance factor. Ok, I let annoying guy flirt with me without brushing him off so I could see if my good friend had any reaction. No reaction, and I was done with the test. Annoying guy thinks I have an interest in him, but I don't. I was talking to my friend while he was visiting annoying guy, and annoying guy wanted to talk to me. I made it clear that I didn't want to talk to him, even went so far as to say that I would hang up if he came on the phone. Beer takes its natural course, though, and my friend needed to set the phone down for a second. Annoying guy picked up the phone and said hello, and I hung up the phone. He doesn't take a hint well, which is another reason why he is annoying.
Indirect isn't working, so the next step was coming up with a polite way to say that he is annoying. I was shopping for a get well card for my friend's mom and saw the perfect card. There is a flasher in his raincoat, doing the obvious in front of a woman in a grocery store. She is looking at him and thanks him for reminding her to buy the baby carrots. A sketch on the back has her remembering the cherry tomatoes too. The note inside has an admission that I think about him occassionally, but never in a good way. Now there is only the waiting for my friend to see him and tell me his reaction. For some reason, bursting his bubble is entertaining to me. It is an entertaining thought.
Anyway, he wouldn't be as annoying if he just admitted to himself that most women won't actually be interested in him and that he should count me among that crowd. My friend claims that he can be a great guy, but I think you only get to see that non-annoying side of him if you aren't female. Just a thought. Annoying guy will probably remain annoying for all the time I know him. *Deep sigh.*
