6 Habits of Highly Annoying Public Speakers
Cracked.com (America’s only humor site since 1958) always has great reads. Today’s entry was no exception.
As an example, Number 6 is “Blaming the Audience for a Lack of Enthusiasm”, illustrated above.
The most annoying thing, beyond being nagged to do something you don’t really want to do, is that the speaker is basically blaming you, the audience, for not being enthusiastic about something as stupid as his initial greeting, or maybe a catchphrase he wants you to repeat later, or maybe some opinion you’re supposed to get excited about.
Well, that’s his job. He’s supposed to get you excited by making the subject matter exciting, not by guilting you into pretending to be excited.
We’ve all been there. God help us.
