People on planes who start clapping like mad as soon as the plane touches down on the runway.

It's still travelling at 150mph (give or take) and the pilot has to slow it down, the job's not completely done FFS

Even when the job's done.
If he or she can't land a plane then he/she shouldn't be up front FFS.

(maybe acceptable if it's a howling gale/blizzard cross-wind)

Talking about politics. I hate election time, especially as I'm the only lefty in a house of ******* Tories. **** that for a laugh. I've had to make a no politics rule to save my sanity. It's hard when even Gogglebox has segments on the week's political news.

The cost of my Internet keeps going up... I'm sure they must tell me it is going up in the small print somewhere.

Why should it keep going up? Should it not go down in cost?

Then they temp you with special offers to "get faster" internet for less money, but then stick hidden cost on top, and in 12 months the "special offer" expires and you will be paying more than you are today.

As someone who learned Dutch for a year I can clear up the latter for you. Its van haal (Dutch g is similar to our h with a guttural edge to it). But in English its just pronounced wanker.

I want to expand on yours and say inconsistent pronunciation of player names in general. Bellerin in the Arsenal game today had about 3 different ways of saying it between the two commentators. It pains me they don't bother to learn how to say it correctly, even the Yanks get that right in sports.

It would appear that G's are pronounced as H's.

Think I'm losing my senses but here goes. Listening to BBC's 'Books And Authors' podcast, I heard an author mispronounce the word 'hyperbole'. The failed pronunciation loses the speaker every ounce of credibility in my books. Then, on another episode, I heard a Cambridge scholar use a rhetorical term I had never come across before and she failed to spell it for the listeners. The term is anacolutha and I spent the last fifteen minutes trying to find it. My story has a happy ending though. I thought to myself, I'm going onto the BBS thread, Things That Annoy You.

Especially considering the players have spent the previous half hour warming up only to be then made to stand around for 10 minutes.

Yes, Yes and Yes!
Exactly who is responsible for world sport being infiltrated by over the top pre-ceremony? National anthems go off at the opening of an envelope these days. FFS, the cricket World Cup sent teams out to the sound of their anthems at the semi final stage. :veryangry
However, God Save The Queen conspicuously absent on those occasions.

The stupidity of "the authorities" sometimes. From MSN:

"An Italian grandmother has accidentally poisoned herself and three children with hot chocolate that went out of date 15 years ago.

The 77-year-old woman, named as Mrs Rosetta, reportedly found the expired sachets at home and mixed them into warm milk as a treat for her two grandchildren and their friend.

She also enjoyed some of the hot drink, along with her partner and son, Il Mattino reported.

Her partner was the first to feel the effects, suffering sickness and diarrhoea, before the whole group had to be hospitalised with food poisoning symptoms.

One of the children, who were aged between eight and 12, reportedly remained in hospital for almost three weeks.

Suspicions quickly turned to the hot chocolate and when she was able to return home, Mrs Rosetta discovered that the expiry date was 5 June 1990, Il Giornale di Vicenza reported.

She had brought the drink sachets “a few years earlier” in the 1980s, the newspaper said, but forgot about them as they languished hidden in the bottom of a cupboard.

The hot chocolate’s expiry date was in the month when Italy hosted the start of the World Cup, the destruction of the Berlin Wall began, the US and Russia signed a treaty to end chemical weapon production and J.K Rowling finished writing Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Prosecutors are now considering pressing charges against Mrs Rosetta over the incident."

Not being able to bring and eat your own sandwiches to pubs. It's really annoying having to sneak off to eat them in the loos every time I go out, not to mention highly unsociable as I'm forced to leave the table for 10-15 minutes and sit in a cubicle to fill my boots. Add the time that I do actually need to use the loo and I must spend half of my evening in there. Plus why is it that everyone that goes in the next cubicle along seems to have a bloody great cold? Sniffing away unnecessarily . Unless it's a little hint that they are letting me know what I'm up to? Either way I'd like to eat my sandwiches with my pint please.

LOL. And why is it when I want to watch the Mastrs in a seemingly official site (CBS) it tells me I'm not in the right region, yet the adverts seem to be fine.

Sick of all this region bollox; BBC, C4 etc. What should it matter if a programme of little interest to the vast majority outside the UK is limited to UK only - radio, too.

Women who put their makeup on whilst on a train. That's like me brushing my teeth on the train.

Half and half scarves. The people who sell them and the people who buy them.

Slow walkers. I reckon I walk faster than 99.5% of the London population. It's particularly frustrating when trying to get over London Bridge in morning or evening rush hour. Hurry the **** up.

People who use the word "basically" when making a statement or in the middle of asking a question.

For me this borders younger people using the word "like" every 6 seconds during conversation as well as journalists covering a story (usually a bad one such as a member of a family losing relatives in a fire) and their first question being "you've lost your family in a fire, how does that make you feel?"

And the people that call them "matchday scarves" and ask where they can buy them,

My son was a mascot at the Man City game, and I was forced to buy one through gritted teeth as a keepsake.....

Three 'Hail Supa Al's due, and you are absolved from all guilt, my son! :D

No such excuse for any more though!

What, you mean you don't want the non-fruit based cider?

People who are clearly incapable of using self-service machines (ticket, supermarket etc) who insist on using such machines. You should need a licence

Estuary accents are annoying me today.

Agreed with ticket machines. I believe there should be a ban on tourists and day trippers from using these at mainline stations during rush hour.

Supermarket self service is a minefield though. A small change in air pressure will often see the ones in my local bark out that I should remove the unswiped item from the bagging area
