I can go one better/worse. Iíve got a mate who constantly whistles the same bloody tune, the theme tune to mash, after putting up with it for 2 hours on a fishing boat with nowhere to escape from the dirge he looked miffed when I told him to STFU.

Iím a musical fellow and like to listen and absorb a song, but all I get to hear is Mrs Bubbs (whoís not so musical) warbling over and ruining song after song. She also does that thing where she doesnít know most of the lyrics yet still attempts to sing them, starting off with the wrong words then changing them mid word when she realises itís wrong. Arghhhh!

My older brother had the same infuriating habit when I used to be a passenger in his car in our younger days. Problem is Iím too bloody polite to ever say anything. Donít want to ruin their obvious over enthusiastic enjoyment and burst their tone less bubbles.

My ex-wife used to tell me off for singing out of tune all the time - including at the football. Ruined my enjoyment and confidence, so good on ya.

People who sit in the middle of a 3 seat bench. It's the fully clothed equivalent of breaking the unwritten urinal law.

Also, washroom designers who think squeezing 4 urinals into a space that's only big enough for 3. Idiots.

I broke the unwritten rule the other day, wasn't thinking due to jet lag, and used the middle urinal. It caused chaos and everyone diving into the cubicles

I am increasingly noticing that hardly anyone seems to press the button at traffic lights anymore(well certainly in Sutton anyway) - people just seem to have forgotten its there and I always seem to have to press it even when several different people have been stood there for a while ahead of me.

You usually find that the button works at remote Pelican crossings but often doesn't do anything when at crossings next to road junctions. In the latter case they often just change to a green man whenever the sequence naturally gets round to stopping cars at your location regardless of whether the button has been pushed. it may be a placebo effect in that it makes you believe you have initiated something so you will wait rather than go for a gap.

The ticketing re-seller (touting) industry apologist on the radio this evening who was defending the extortionate prices they charge. His excuse was that they cater for the people who's desire to be at the concert is the greatest. Granted he did say there were market forces to justify these prices but then said touts take great financial risks in securing these ticket for our benefit!

Not exactly Jedinak or Leadley like. Got his supervisor over and they were holding up the photo next to me umming and ahhing as to whether it was me. I think they were just having a bit of fun with it, but after 11 hours on a plane, I didn't see the funny side to it.

Getting a new vehicle which comes with a free 6 month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio (Do you have that in The UK?). After 3 weeks I'm hooked on it, and know when the 6 months is up, I'm going to have to join up to continue to get it.

Because the "U" in ute is not pronounced as a vowel sound.

Actually felt sorry for the guy, it was 8:00 by the time he got here, and had an hours drive to get home after being here 45 minutes. I commend his dedication, but I was pretty pissed off, and he did call me at the end of his allotted window to say he was going to be an hour and a half late and offering to reschedule.
