I actually don't get annoyed much. I mean stuff like kicking the back of my chair or something annoys me but I will just politely ask them to stop and then remember that they are only a child so if they forget and kick my chair again, I don't freak out about it. I can always move if i need to.
I also try to remember that I don't know what is going on with that child at that moment so it's not right for me to judge their behavior.
I do get annoyed with rudeness from teenagers. And I get pretty annoyed when teenagers say inappropriate things when there are young children around.
I get more annoyed at rude adult behavior than I do at rude child behavior.
children behavior doesnt usually bug me, because generally they arent trying to be rude or misbehave they are just frustrated, bored or tired of being out.
Adults, older children and teenagers rude behavior bothers me, like using bad language (though i dont have the cleanest mouth i try to behave in public) or just generally not having concern for other people around them or the fact that they are in public
I think the one thing that really bugs me if kids spit or throw sand on each other. I would definately say somethig to that child to have him/her stop. And I don't care if the parent is within ear shot. And of course any foul language coming out of teenager's mouths.
I think what bugs me the most is when the parents aren't paying attention to what the kids are doing. There have been 2 instances at the park where older children (usually girls around 4 years old) try to block access to the slide or other areas of the play ground equipment, and they tell my LO he can't go that way. I usually have to step in and say "the park is for everyone to play". I don't know what it is about girls around this age group but i have seen them be really mean to my LO. I don't see this problem with boys though. I am having a girl next so I will be extra cautious to make sure she plays well with the younger kids.
I was going to say it's the parents that annoy me most of all.
At Maggie's birthday party, we invited our neighbour and her daughters/grandsons to join us. Her one grandson is about the same age as Maggie, and while we were opening her gifts, he was in there running the show, stepping all over us, and opening Maggie's gifts for her while they just watched him do it. We were jammed in like sardines and I was trying to block for Maggie but they wouldn't intervene. Not the kids fault at all - totally the parents fault for not getting control of their kid.
