Which vice or bad habit can you simply not abide in others?

I can’t stand people who smile and look happy while they bring you bad or sad news. I guess they do that to soften the impact of the news or to show how strong they are when confronting adversity. But what I perceive is that they are wearing a mask covering their real feelings. It’s like a big lie. A performance. Makes me extremely angry and I distrust them. I can’t hide my feelings like them. When there is something sad going on I can’t help myself and I usually cry. When there is something bad going on I get serious. Maybe this is why I can’t stand them.

They say I’m a perfectionist, but I don’t abide perfectionists. Get me nervous. Maybe because I’m one of them. Who knows?
