People who say the word absolutely in slow motion.

Wolfnipplechips 13-03-2022 04:25 PM

People who leave gaps in a conversation and expect you to ask them a question.

F*ck em.

LN1 13-03-2022 04:45 PM

Similarly people who leave long gaps in their conversation but haven't actually finished speaking yet who then annoyed that you've interrupted them!

This weekend's annoyances:

eBay sellers who still can't take a decent picture of what they are selling, just how good are phone cameras nowadays?

eBay bidders who bid way more than many 'buy it now' options for the identical item (not annoying just stupid).

My recycle big bin got a label attached to it saying I had put a brown microwave meal tray in and would face consequences if it happened again. Way to go local council means more stuff in the landfill bin just to make sure now.

What council has got the time, people and money to go through your recycle bin contents?

Won’t you get a label on the other bin then? Hope the label is recyclable …..

More seriously, I don’t think our binmen look in the bins, the wagon barely stops moving and I can’t imagine them doing that without being left behind.

Most of the stuff in the black landfill wheelie bin is in bin bags from my kitchen swing bin so if they're willing to tear those open then good luck to them. Being on a dead end road our bin men walk ahead and wait for the bin lorry to turn around at the end so maybe they have more time to investigate whats in the the bins. I wouldn't be surprised if they issue one or to threats out every now and again to keeps us in line?

We live in a culture where a person can lose their job for allegedly, back in 1981, complimenting one of their colleagues for possessing a nice set of teeth. So it does make you wonder how Carragher managed to keep his job after the gobbing out the window incident.

We've had our recycle taken today, but not our bins, which usually happens every monday

Not a major annoyance as we do a lot of recycling and not as much landfill.

Not sure if the dustman are on strike (coventry is) or cutting back to fortnightly.

Are you sure it wasn’t as a healthy reminder.
What could the consequences be? Obesity?
Why do you think it was the dustman and not a recycling vigilante
How many labels do they carry if they had one printed for ‘brown microwave meal tray’ one.
Why don’t you put a sticker on it next week and say if they ever spill the cat food cans, that there will be consequences?

It was a multiple choice check box label so they tick the offending material and then write the exact description on the dotted line space on it. They are introducing a second recycle bin soon so I think they are trying to get people into line? I'd be more impressed if it said ' stop eating microwave meals you fat b.....d!

bubbs11 16-03-2022 03:42 AM

Driving along on a busy street yesterday and stopped to let a parked car, indicating to come out, go in front me. They do, then politely use their hazards to thank me. All fine. But this is when it got awkward; I felt the hazards stayed on a little longer than was comfortable or certainly I would leave them. Two flashes, maybe three, suffices. This one went on to about five and quite frankly, strayed from a thank you to sycophancy. Lost all respect.

Hedgehog 16-03-2022 05:06 AM

Maybe a flash of the headlights to acknowledge you had seen his acknowledgment of your gesture would have lead to a speedier turning off of the hazard blinkers?

Yes. What happened to a polite wave?

And pedestrians on Zebra crossings who don't have the courtesy to acknowledge you when you stop for them (yes, I know stopping is the law). It's just being polite.

Ha ha - I often wonder about this one in some of the narrow country lanes around me. I always wave to thank those who let me through in daylight, but what to do at night-time ?

Seems rude not to thank someone who pulls over to let you through, - but I am aware that, in flashing my headlights, I am causing discomfort to the kind person letting me through. What is the correct etiquette here ?

When I stop for someone, I always look away from the front of the oncoming car because I am aware that (mostly ...) the person coming through will flash me to thank me.

Drivers use their less blinding hazards to say thank you when being let out at a junction, or when changing lanes.

Hedgehog 16-03-2022 02:11 PM

Boy, I hope some of you guys didn't watch the light show at Selhurst Park the other night!

Not sure "flashing" your hazards when behind someone would get noticed by the driver in front.

On the country lane front, another annoyance would be people who don't dip their main beams when coming at you. Probably another whole post for that one.

You should of course get out and thank them.

I've noticed a few people now dip to sidelights and back to normal as a thank you.

And that's against the Highway Code, isn't it? Hazards are only to be used if there is a hazard. Not sure about using them to change lanes either?

There was a whole discussion on Radio 2 about this the other day. Some of this is due to people having LED headlights that are actually dipped but very bright and people driving vehicles that are much higher off the road now e.g. SUV's.

Easier to do that when on single-direction carriageway, rather driving towards a narrow gap on a country lane !

This is a good point. Many headlights are so bright these days it can be hard to tell if they are on high beam or not.

Same issue when the headlights of the car/SUV behind you are blinding you in your mirrors.

Archiebald Leitch 16-03-2022 04:41 PM

Annoyance, people who drive cars that don’t have auto main beams or auto dimming rear view mirrors.

My rear view mirror auto dims, but not the wing mirrors... which is worse for blinding you.

Was not aware that vehicles could have auto main beams... I assume they dip if they sense a car's lights coming at them?

Archiebald Leitch 16-03-2022 04:56 PM

Yes or they locate a moving car in front travelling in same direction.

The weird guy who used to act as Christian O'Connell's sidekick on Absolute Radio came up with the concept of the 'light mitt' for just such an occasion. Essentially a glove with low wattage LED lights on which a driver could raise in appreciation to briefly acknowledge an act of kindness by another driver in darkness.

There needs to be a universally accepted hand sign, and I don't mean the middle finger or the v-sign, or wanker sign, that lets a driver know he (or she) has had their turn indicator/signal on for the last 5 miles!

Women of a certain age (over 50 let's say) who refer to their friends or group of friends as "Girl Friends"... I'm looking at you Mrs. Hedgehog!

I cannot think of a situation where a male would refer to his friends as "Boy Friends" unless they live in Brighton or Soho and are of a certain persuasion.

I may have done this one before, which unto itself is annoying!

Rugby fans down the pub, never been to a game in their life either international or domestic. Couldn’t name the domestic team of any of the England players but somehow are experts during the six nations.

Needing to be up at 3am ahead of a motorbike tour in France, and being stuck on the bog with gut rot.

Having lunch today having the people next to us constantly on their phones watching videos on their speakers.

Then a 12% service charge for food which was unbelievably slow.

There is a restaurant over here that makes you put your mobile in a locker when you arrive. Bit of a pricy place so can get away with it.




Note. Never been there but the young Mineagle goes there a bit.

I have few approaches to this in the passive agressive English way.

- Stand over them and watch along, they can't really ask "do you mind?" given that they are disturbing you but if they ever do you can just say "it sounds great, wondered if it was worth watching too"

- Offer my headphones to them, another confusion move. If they ever took that offer up them they could keep the pair of earphones.

- Just stare at them.

It is particually annoying when they are watching brief loud and screamy or musical You've Been Framed style tik tok clips.

In a similar vein, on the 194 going to Croydon pre-match and some bloke with his daughter thinks it's a good idea to have a chat with some woman on his phone on loudspeaker. Very irritating. Now they've got off to get the tram. Hope they miss it.

Shouldn't that be in the "Properly Piss You Off thread"?

Being asked to take my cap off at the turnstiles by a couple off knobesses.
Wtf do they think I've got under it?

Hedgehog 20-03-2022 06:59 PM

Maybe for the CPFC Bird watching thread, but 2 doves have decided to hang around under the eaves over our front door. The annoyance is they keep setting off the security camera and I get a message on my phone every time - 8 times this morning during the Palace game. And secondly their "cooing" can get bloody annoying.

I fear they maybe thinking of building a nest up there.

I did all the above.
My mrs had been ill for the last couple of weeks and it was her first time out of the pad in a while, sit down to a nice lunch to get out and all you can hear is the offshoot of some tick-tock video.

Problem was they were Russians here on a holiday and had absolutely no manners. Extremely rude to the staff as well.

Jeez, that looks like something a kindergarten kid would use!

Which unto itself would make it appropriate I guess.

That advert with the old prick who rubs a pea sized amount of Voltarol in to his back and then builds a f*cking motorbike.
