I think worrying about it is just a waste of time.

Considering the way you shun "that annoying friend," I'm hard-pressed to believe that you two are actually friends. Just make it official that you don't like him. It's a dick move to string the guy along like that, both for him and yourself.

I'm quite often the "annoying friend" so suck it up and get used to me.


On a serious note...

I usually have a pretty long fuse so I just give them their shit back to them.... One guy I knew I put up with for a while 'till he started dating a girl half his age and told everyone in our group I was full of shit.... He was 25 at the time and I had a witness to his bullshit.... Generally I flipped him off every time I saw him after that.

Sometimes you just gotta find a new friend....

Ah man.. I've had a couple of those.. I noticed that once I got in to high-school, that seemed to become less of an issue. A lot of my "weird" friends, I am still somewhat friends with.. Over time, most of them became more mature.

I'm sure I have an annoying friend somewhere and I feel bad (a little?) for not really being able to remember which ones are which, but I guess it's good that I don't see them that way.

The reason why is that I tend to draw a line between whether it's worth keeping them as a friend or if it's necessary to burn the bridge.

Because if I have a possibility of seeing them as a valuable friend, then I shouldn't just drop them but I will try to grow with them instead. Because a good friendship is one where you can grow and change together with the one person you can call a true friend. There's a way of understanding each other that no one else will be able to understand the same way.

If your friendship is that volatile that you can't see a way of progressing together as friends and still consider the time you spent on that progress worthwhile, then I think it's necessary to consider what the best way of changing the situation is, either you change your approach in dealing with the situation together or you decide that the friendship can't continue.

My friends get sick of him a lot too but he has ADHD and refuses to rake his pills some days. i was wondering if anyone else has an annoying friend and how they deal with it?


no I don't but just tell him he's annoying when he doesn't take his pills. You've tried being nice right?

Someone who belittles you, makes fun of you, and constantly tries to make you feel down isn't a friend. They're a parasite. Does he ever do anything nice for you? And if he does, is it only when you're alone together? If so, don't allow him to use you in attempt to be "cool" in front of his other friends.

When he calls you a "weeb" I suppose he's trying to say you're a "weeaboo". A person who acts as though they are Japanese (along with being obsessed with Japanese media and culture) while completely disregarding their own personal culture, etc.

As for ADHD, I don't believe having that learning disability would cause him to act out in such a way. As someone with ADHD, it's kind of rare for someone who has ADHD to act out in such a way. At least as someone who has it and teaches children who have it I have never seen such a behavior. I suppose it could happen... but ADHD is just Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. He has hyperactive tendencies that make it difficult for him to pay attention during class or during times when he should. He's probably got a twitch or something (or always has to be moving... tapping his fingers or foot, squirming around in his chair, playing with something like a pen, etc).

I can understand his desire NOT to take the medicine because it doesn't exactly feel good when you take it. I used to take Ritalin and then later Adderall. They calmed me down and made it easier to focus, but I felt so drained from it and at the same time my heart felt like it was pumping so fast. Normal side-effects, though. My friends said I almost seemed depressed when I took my medicine. I was disconnected from my friends, lost my appetite; but my grades improved.

From a different perspective, his lashing out at you (or others) could be his way of dealing with all the uncomfortableness of fighting not to take his medication, his attempt to try to "fit in" when it seems difficult for him to do well. There could be underlining family issues at home causing him to act in such a way -- it wouldn't hurt to approach him and ask him why he treats you the way he does and ask if there's anything going on at home. I think if he refuses to open up or answer for anything then you'd have a sure reason to let go of the friendship... but I'm assuming since you are calling him your friend that you care for him some.

Long story short. Confront him when you're alone together. Tell him that the way he speaks to you makes you feel hurt. Be sure to use that sort of sentence pattern: "I feel _________ when you _________." This will sound as though you are forcing blame on him and he'll be less likely to get defensive. Especially if you open up with how you feel first. Ask him if there's anything going on at home.

I hope this helps.

Kind of cruel. You don't really even understand how it feels (side-effects wise) to take the medication they give you. Not everyone feels the same side-effects as others, either. I don't necessarily believe that people who had ADHD are annoying. ADHD doesn't necessarily make people cruel towards others either...

It's also important to note that when it comes to teenagers with ADHD/ADD medication isn't the only thing prescribed to them. They must also go to behavioral therapy sessions with a therapist. Keep in mind that it may not be the teenagers fault if they aren't going. It could be the parents as well.
