    taxi drivers who use their hazard warning lights instead of indicators

    so Mr. Taxi Driver, are you turning left/turning right/stopping/about to perform a U turn or have you broken down?

    I may not have been entirely serious.

    Besides, I have a man bag so have no room to complain.

    Drivers who cant reverse into parking spaces, and drivers who reverse out of driveways onto main roads.

    Train pasengers who ask me to move my bag of the seat oposite so they can then bang knees and legs against me and breathe their germs over me,the bag is on the seat to stop that.

    Women drivers who use the mirrors on a car to do their hair and makeup.

    Poeple who still think the condems are doing a good job of the uk plc

    People who I know a quite well off answering all of those “Post a comment for a free bag of air” posts on Farceboak. I’m not sure why but I get irrationally annoyed.

    Well paid footballers who pretend to be injured after being even looked at by another player.
    If I was a manager I’d say, ‘right, every time you fall down & hold your leg & cry, I’m fining you 50K’
    Pussies!

    People who say pants when they mean trousers.

    Men wearing hats inside.

    People who say edit when they mean film. Especially older blokes who are trying to sound ‘hip’ and ‘trendy’ etc.

    The phrase ‘have a listen’ makes me wince as to listen is a verb so it is therefore impossible to have a listen.

    Oh and the use of ‘plane’ when they mean aeroplane or aircraft. Planes make wood smooth.

    Luggage with handles and wheels towed by a ‘man’. If you can’t lift and carry your luggage for 20 yards between car and airport trolley, you’ve got too much stuff.

    People who say ‘simples’.

    having to add your own salt to swarfega to make it like to used to be made. Average without, great with. Not an issue really, just a bit annoying. Although it could be I have a weird variant.

    I agree about the reduced effectiveness of Swarfega.. And it is bloody expensive. Try laundry power to de-gunk your hands!

    add some salt, it’s great then. Proper 80’s style. Try to use latex gloves now mostly. Thanks, might try that at some stage.

    Man bags.

    It’s either a brief case, laptop bag or a rucksack. Maybe at a push a messenger bag if it’s a proper one and your on a bike. If it looks like a woman’s handbag, it’s a handbag.

    Coffee.

    When I order an americano, I want an americano. No I do not want milk, I’d have ordered a flat white if I wanted milk. And it comes in three British sizes, small, medium and large. Not short, tall, grande, venti. I’ve no idea what your menu means because I didn’t go on the “barista” training course like you did for half a day.

    I could go on, but my blood pressure is on the rise…….

    People who say “off of”.

    Yoots who half wear a wooly hat and / or sunglasses inside. Its not cold inside , we dont live in the 1900’s , we have a wonderful thing called central heating , Why is the hat mostly off your head anyway?
    If you move at anything more than a glacial pace your silly half on / half off hat will fall off anyway.

    People who have their **** nav stuck right in the middle of their windscreen !

    ITS NOT A BLOODY HUD !!!!

    Following someone the other day and she had to slow down every time she had to dip her lights because she couldn’t see out the windscreen because of the glare ! I could read it behind her !!!

    And also,

    Red light jumpers !! Even started doing it myself a few months back, after witnessing so many near misses and noticing how many people were also doing it I decided to stop immediately and learn to be patient again.

    Oh so many many many things – although most can be grouped under the heading “showing an utter lack of respect for others”.

    Currently top of the list is having a disembowelled rat dropped onto my head whilst asleep.

    Sort of covered already with the bag situation, but in the past few years there seems to be a need for loads of people to take a a wheelie case to work, and a small case at that.
    Carry the wretched thing, it’s only got a notebook, packet of monster munch and a kit kat inside.

    There will be more to add..

    People who put photo’s of their dinner, etc, on Facebook. Divvies.

    Even a Tesco carrier bag is better than your wife’s handbag.

    Right now: iTunes. Why does Apple have to make everything so bloody difficult?

    Android – plug in the tablet, drag and drop the avi onto it, done.

    Apple – plug in the tablet, wait for iTunes to fire up, work out which tab to use, discover avi not supported, download decoder, try again, add video to playlist and finally…

    buying tickets getting charged a service fee and then a credit card fee and then getting the option of having tickets posted for a massive fee or having to pay a slightly less massive fee which seems to represent the cost of renting half the internet and paying the bar bill for a code writers convention in Honolulu so I can print them at home

    Alot. This annoys me way more than it should. I see this has been extended to abit these days. It shouldn’t bother me but it makes me think the writer is a total tool.
