<strong>"He was pretty much an A-hole to everyone"</strong><br><br> This would accurately describe like 20 people I know but I'll still never read it in an obituary.
I bet you interact with at least 10 annoying people everyday. They might be outright rude, or just inconsiderate. Maybe they’re painfully bad at their job and it grates on you.
