Headache Makers - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why is it that headache makers,
Are the first to participate in the generating...
Of annoyances wished to inflict,
And knowing this?

Uncomfortable with social etiquette,
Headache makers have their own priority list.
And it is studied to make sure,
Those in their presence know they exist!

Number 1...Be the center of attention.
Number 2...Name dropp and embellish.
Number 3...Speak loudly and laugh at own jokes told.
Number 4...Disrespect with opinions not solicited.
Number 5...Create nicknames to call others when socializing.
Number 6...Pry and be a nuisance.
Number 7...Tell everyone present what is wrong with 'them'.
Number 8...Interrupt and interfere with other conversations.
Number 9...Suggest to host and/or hostess what needs to be done.
Number 10..Pretend to be something that one isn't.

Why is it that headache makers,
Are the first to participate in the generating...
Of annoyances wished to inflict,
And knowing this?

As they wonder why,
Very few people wish...
To be in their presence again,
Consciously!
