Women driving big, shiny, "recreational" vehicles that they simply can't handle.

Neighbour music can annoy, but we all have an understanding here.. and I'm skooling them in classic house anyway.

That said lived in a block of flats once and one dweller played some kickass junglist tunes, but at 2am. Asked him to be considerate for his neighbours but got the best justification ever: 'But the tunes are bad man!' Unsurprisingly he got his door kicked in and other parts shortly after by my other biker neighbour.

I always get a nervous twitch watching Saturday kitchen, when it comes to the bit when the guests finally get to sample what's just been cooked.

It's that dread of imagining oneself lapsing into a tantrum or walking out because someone's talked too much over the dish or a bit of spital's gone into it; or someone's taken the best bit or moved the plate along before I'd had a fair go with it.

I don't understand why they can't just dish it up fairly and equally.

I won't have a bad word said against that class of restaurant chain. I like them all - Nandos, Bella Italia, Pizza Express, Cafe Rouge, Wagamamas - they're all exceptional, and probably better than any of their more expensive counterparts. The only one's s___ is, Miso, which I call Miso-horny.

I just wish there was an equally good and ubiquitous Indian equivalent.

Most books that, on the cover, say something like "A [insert name] Novel." The only exception to this are the John Corey books by Nelson Demille.

Blokes who go into the cubicle and then let rip with what is clearly a scatter gun explosion, that you just know will have sprayed the rim as well as the bowl, and then give an audible-to-the-next-cubicle sigh of satisfaction.

Going in to a shop to buy a sandwich - and they are all containing mayonnaise. Fck right off.

What happened to egg & salad cream, for example?

CPFC2010ANDON 11-03-2015 02:11 PM

A big pet hate is this.

Customer Service - you want a "Hello" and a smile from the person serving you. So, why do you have to be so ****** rude and come to the till, talking on your mobile frigging phone, and remain having a conversation throughout the whole sodding transaction. You cnts can fck off because I am not serving you. Wankers. Even worse when they can't even break their conversation to say "Hello" or "Thank-you".

The other day i went to buy my lottery tickets and the woman serving me was eating a packet of crisps. She handed me over the tickets and they said "sorry there might be some salt and vinegar on those."

chrisophiex 12-03-2015 08:36 AM

People who continue to eat on the phone, especially when you say "I can tell you're eating so I'll call you back" , which is a polite way to have a go at them, and they reply "No, it's ok" and carry on eating !

Take the hint you div !

To an extent, when I was at uni I worked as a tillgirl, you don't expect people to be polite to you or say hello etc. and for 5.80 an hour Asda weren't going to get much out of me, but once I had a customer that was so rude I refused to serve them. There's a difference between rudeness and ignorance

Selhurst Celtic 12-03-2015 11:13 AM

I was a being trained as a till monkey at Texas Homecare back in the day (part of my warehouse staff role was to be able to cover the tills if required) and when a what appeared to be a vagrant approached my till clutching two bottles of white spirits my supervisor whispered in my ear: "Don't serve him, he's going to drink those" and then scarpered.

So I said to yer man that I can't serve him. He looked shocked and explained that his appearance was due to gutting a house and the painters needed white spirits for the gloss paint work they were doing.

That was fair enough for me, especially as I'd been abandoned, and as I was putting them through the till he gave me a wink and said: "You haven't got any in the fridge have you?"

I was back ragging the forklift around the loading bay in about 10 minutes & was never put on the tills again.

On the contrary, I'm quite looking forward to the early kick off tomorrow. Out the ground by 3. Then either in the pub, or home to watch the late kick off and the rugby on TV and iPad.

Drivers who dither at junctions
Drivers who go 25mph in a 30 on a clear road.
Drivers who do not use their indicators.
Drivers who do not acknowledge when you have been courteous to them when you give them the right of way.

So basically all drivers.

Right on brother.

Non indicator wankers make me do a primeval scream.

Also annoying are the people who stick to 40 in every speed limit. 40 in 30, 40 in 40, then out onto bigger roads, but still 40 in a 50, ooh a national speed limit, let's still do 40.

Arseholes.

Oh, and poor road positioning. At a t-junction for example. If you're turning left, then position yourself over on the left, especially if the road widens at that point. Similarly, if you're turning right then move across closer to the middle of the road.

I get so pissed off on the roads.

God yeah, me too. Driving really isn't pleasurable at all anymore is it, for all those reasons and more. Average speed cameras manage to remove even the slightest amount of enjoyment there is from a long drive somewhere.

I miss the days of taking your time, driving out to the coast in summer. If you try it now on a country road you get a bmw up your arse within 5 minutes.

People that write on Internet forums about their wife and put Mrs 'insert their own username'

Eg. "I asked Mrs Skiddo the other day to pop along to the green grocers."

Cringeworthy.

I miss the days of taking your time, driving out to the coast in summer. If you try it now on a country road you get a bmw up your arse within 5 minutes.

It's even worse now with "smart motorways" - an oxymoron if there ever was one.

The feckers will book you without you even knowing for minor transgressions of the speed limit. The argument against raising the speed limit was that people would take the piss and exceed the new limit.

There has to be an even stronger argument to raise it now if you get a ticket and points for a few mph over 70 on the M25. It's plainly a revenue generation exercise and nothing to do with safety.

This annoys me as much as people who sign off complaints as "Angry/disappointed of Surrey" or some shit like that

So basically all drivers.

Not indicating at roundabouts has to be the crime of the century. If you're at a particularly busy, small one like the Ravensbury in Mitcham, the potential to actually get onto the ****** is severely hampered if people don't indicate when they exit. I mean, they must sit there getting ****ed off by exactly the same thing before then doing it themselves, surely?

They've introduced them on the a9 between perth and inverness (120 miles). I dont know if its reduced accidents but its certainly reduced the enjoyment of driving on that road even more. The problem is still people getting frustrated by following lorries or caravans for miles of single carriageway and then overtaking towards traffic. If anything the cameras are another distraction as people spend too much time looking down at their speedo and out for the bloody cameras.

Did you also know that it is an offence to go round a roundabout 3 times

People who lie annoy me. There are no green grocers left and if they were they'd be called greengrocers.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 14-03-2015 12:26 PM

People (mainly women) who can't reverse park.

art malice 15-03-2015 03:10 PM

People talking about 'execution of passing' instead of just 'passing'

gadford4th 15-03-2015 03:42 PM

These new small-flush/big-flush toilet buttons.

I don't understand them. They don't work. They stress me out. I JUST WANT IT GONE.

SA Eagle 15-03-2015 03:44 PM

People at bus stops who don't realise they're standing blocking the pavement that others are trying to use

Me too. That stretch of road is the bane of my life. :(

Kids that hide in the trees and "egg" your car in the middle of the night, nearly making you crash.

It's the same at T-Junctions. Actually worse in my mind.
