A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Do you annoy people on purpose?

by marymc on May 16, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Some people (Joan) annoy me without knowing it. Others (nameless) know damn well they are pissing me off. Both are aware of the crap I've been dealing with. Both are important to me, 2 of the very few who I consider in my inner circle, yet each has found a unique way to just get to me. One finishes my sentences. The other constantly invites me to do a bunch of outdoorsy stuff that I have absolutely no interest in, and relentlessly nags when I decline. I have (calmly) explained to each that I would prefer they not continue. Now that they know, they do it more. What kind of people do this? Gentle teasing is one thing, but constant harassment?
