Posh people who say 'orf' instead of off.

I prefer that to posh people dropping aitches. Gaz Coombes on Saturday Kitchen this morning, for example.

I'm really starting to get annoyed by the woman next to me at work who insists - no doubt advice from some shitty lifestyle supplement - on drinking a litre and a half of spring water without a cup or other vessel to pour it into. You got the noise from the initial gripping action, the noise of the water being poured downward, the noise of the suction, the noise as air rushes in to fill the vacuum left by the displacement of liquid, the noise of the plastic bottle as it resumes its original shape, and then the thump of it as she replaces it onto the desk.

I know it's trivial, but it's starting to grate.

People who think the world wants to hear their conversation when they're on the train. Usually they are on the phone.

You probably need to make a game of it. Next time she goes for a pee, drop something inside the bottle. Then you can run a sweepstake on which swig she will notice it.

Sunday Brunch or whatever the **** it's called on Channel 4. Interviewing a celebrity then asking them to cook a ******* risotto at 9:30 in the morning... I just don't understand the relevance. And why cooking? Why not have a chat with Judy Dench then ask her to help change a head gasket on a 1973 Ford Escort? Coming up, Seasick Steve plays live in the studio then tiles the bathroom.
Gets right on my tits.

Its not trivial. I once lived with a bitch who did just that but at 4am when she would wake up thirsty. Pour it in a glass or beaker and place by bedside you f*cking inconsiderate whore. Needless to say I never held back on farts whatsoever after this. And deliberately snored loudly.

The next time she does it pick up your keyboard and whack it right across the end of the bottle so it crumbles and bursts in her face. You would be laughing all the way to the dole office.

Places that add a service charge automatically to a bill that the waiting staff and/or chefs see nothing of.

If it's a service charge it's for the actual people that provided the service not the people that own the place. Cheeky bastards.

The 'bing-bong' bell noise every time you either go through or even get near the door to a 7-Eleven or Family Mart.

similar sort of thing. when I was at school I had a Saturday job in Debenhams. By the end of the first Saturday in December I wanted to kill everyone who had ever written a Christmas song. But especially Paul McCartney and those sodding frogs.

Much rather have a bucket/basket than have the chips stacked jenga style like some places do. That really is stingy and doesn't cover up the fact that you are getting about 6 chips with your burger.

Joggers/runners trying to negotiate London Bridge southbound at 08:15.

People who try and beat the queue at London Bridge by walking down the inside of the train to the front then push in front of you.

Prople who aggressively barge in front to get the last seat and then barge in front again to get off as you stand all the way in the aisle.

If you do get an aisle seat, then the people standing in the aise who keep brushing the top of your head with their newspaper and bashing you with their rucksack which they leave ontheir back.

And then... the people that have been queuing for ages for the ticket barrier decide its time to search their pockets for the ticket only when they are actually at the barrier.

And...dont get me started on wheely suitcases at packed railway stations.

You may be able to sense it's been a joyous commute today!

People (almost always women) who try to maneuver their way to the doors of a train just as the train has left the previous station. Extra points if the person does it at a big station during rush hour.

In a similar vein...

People who push the "Bus Stopping" button just as it pulls out from the previous stop. At least let the poor bloke get back into the traffic FFS.

People who try and beat the queue at London Bridge by walking down the inside of the train to the front then push in front of you.

Prople who aggressively barge in front to get the last seat and then barge in front again to get off as you stand all the way in the aisle.

If you do get an aisle seat, then the people standing in the aise who keep brushing the top of your head with their newspaper and bashing you with their rucksack which they leave ontheir back.

And then... the people that have been queuing for ages for the ticket barrier decide its time to search their pockets for the ticket only when they are actually at the barrier.

And...dont get me started on wheely suitcases at packed railway stations.

You may be able to sense it's been a joyous commute today!

My one real commuting gripe is when those sitting expect to be able to get up immediately and off the train, pushing their way in to the queue to get off before those who have been forced to stand. I am usually able to sit, but will never move to get up until those who have had to stand in the aisles next to me have at least had the opportunity to move before I do.

These people get on my tits.

As someone who is usually standing on the train, I make a power play as we are pulling into the station and support myself with my arm on the shelf above the seat of the person I suspect will do this.

I have twice got into arguments on crowded trains with people who have tried to stand and get in front of me and I haven't let them. Good thing about most English people, and especially work commuters, is they get very embarrassed if you cause a scene about their behaviour and they back down (I myself have no shame).

Nissan Micra's and the idiots who choose to drive what must be the worlds slowest car.

Good for you - when I do stand I will do the exact same and put myself into a position that stops them getting up. Not had an argument yet, but would be happy to were it to happen.

Not sure about this one. Surely it's better to do it early than late to give the driver time? What is annoying is when loads of people press the button repeatedly.

Yep. Then despite the sign being lit, other people repeatedly pressing the bell afterwards

God I miss London.

People who press the open button on the train door before its even stopped. How desperate are these people to get off the train half a ssecond quicker?

People who sit in the outside seats who when you ask them to get up so you can get into the inside seat, look like you've just asked to **** their Mrs whilst fingering their arsehole.

Tony Montana 12-06-2015 09:08 PM

Snorers on trains, show a bit of decorum you fat mess

Not when there are at least 5 minutes driving along the motorway in between stops it isn't.
