Can you tell what is wrong with this Venn Diagram?

So he can be friends with the set of people with whom he both annoys and is annoyed by?

People who he does not annoy and people who do not annoy him seem like the more appropriate set of people with whom he could be friends, but these sets of people are no where to be found in this diagram.

You could assume that those are people who he could be friends with, which would go inside the center area of the diagram. But that would make "People he annoys & and is annoyed by" include "people he does not annoy and is not annoyed by," creating a paradox.

This is what I was thinking at first. But isn't that what makes this a paradox? It seems like a diagram demonstrating a poor choice in friends doesn't necessarily demonstrate bad math. But if that's what knight427 was going for I guess the issue would be that the middle portion is treated as it's own category rather than where the other two overlap. And if that were the case then it looks like the diagram's creator was trying to show some sort of proportions with a Venn diagram which would also be bad math.

Yes, that's it.

I don't know, I know I annoy my friends and I sure as hell know they annoy me. That's why we're friends.
