    This thread is starting to get on my tits.

    So negative.

    Two roadies I saw in the Purbecks yesterday. Riding two abreast on a country road, with a double decker bus crawling along behind them, followed by at least ten cars. Tools!

    People who say refuge bins when they mean refuse.

    People who leave their refuse bins out on the street all week and the others who have nicked my last two glass and plastic ones.

    Junk mail that the RM “must” deliver.

    Junk mail that the RM “must” deliver.

    I now put junk mail in an envelope with no stamp and send it to the sender’s “contact us” address on their web site. Matbe if everyone did that, cheap mail shots wouldn’t be so cheap.

    threads on STW where English people who live in England and don’t get to vote in the referendum tell me a Scot living in Scotland how awful life will be when we go for self determination

    Driving home, turning off the main road just before the village beacuse that’s how you get to my house when I get stopped by someone telling my I couldn’t go that way becaose of the “cycling event”. Arranged through the council? Nope Police notified? Nope. Any official notification whatsoever? nope. just thought you could close the road without telling anyone ? Want to know what i think about that?
    EDIT on second thoughts, I don’t class that as “petty”

    Audi’s, especially the more expensive ones, always driven by cocks. White ones, even more so.

    Nissan Almera’s, especially green ones, always driven by people in no rush what so ever.

    Being disturbed by a phone call only to hear that long pause before some twonk starts trying to sell me something I don’t want.

    Wish washy parents who allow their offspring to run riot seemingly oblivious to the havoc, noise, disruption to others made by their little darling.

    Telesales people who insist on finding out if you’ve been having a good day and so on before they try and flog you some rubbish you don’t want.
    I DON’T KNOW YOU, I DON’T WANT TO KNOW YOU. HURRY YOURSELF UP.

    One more thing, unsubscribing from an email mailshot list which immediately sends you another email.

    When the film trailer guy says numbers rather than the date.

    eg. Coming February fifteen.

    It’s the 15th, you clempit.

    Oh, and people who talk in Scott Mills idiot language, and say “off of”, rather than “from”.

    People beginning a sentence with “Reason being”. What’s wrong with “The reason is” ?

    That’s a valid point about Norton Canes why go on a toll road to speed up the journey, then stop for an hour for a brew ?

    I’m sure it’s also one of the busiest in the country.

    Posters outside shops that say something along the lines of “Apples and oranges, 25p, your choice”.
    Of course it’s my choice!! I’m not going to go into a shop and then be told what to buy, FFS !!!

    Morrisons self service tills ….the least reliable device ever made.

    Over-stirring driven clinking of teacups, as is happening presently.

    Y’see this is petty and perfect! By any chance is the over-stirrer also bashing the spoon from side to side from some kind of morbid fear that there may be a dead-spot of unsugared, unmilked* tea lurking at the bottom of the mug?

    *verbing: “Can you milk my tea..just a little please?”

    People at airport security that get to the front of the queue and only then start thinking about taking their computer out of the bag, their liquids out of the bottom of the suitcase, take their coat off. And how deep of a cave do you have to live in to not know that you can’t take bottles of drink with you?

    Also .. and I’m looking at French people here … what sort of idiot gets to the front of a supermarket queue and then starts rummaging in their bag for a cheque book? Oh yes – the same idiot who’s now casually bagging their groceries while yakking on their mobile.

    The guy in front of you in the queue that…wait for it…puts his elbows on the counter. Then sometimes cranes his neck round to look at the computer terminal. ๐Ÿ˜†

    You’re in for a long wait.

    I’m sitting at the puter trying to think of a petty annoyance, unfortunately i can’t think of one.

    Bloody annoying.

    People trying to sell you stuff and starting their pitch with ‘What it is right’.

    Oh, and people cutting in at the bar when you’ve been waiting ages to be served.

    Ahhh! When the barman/barmaid calls you first even though you just got there, and you say “This dude/girl here’s been waiting longer” and they say “Ok, thanks” and serve them instead then another 500 people before they come back to you aaarahrghagrhgarhgrah

    When I was 18 I worked in a pub. I found it quite annoying when, on a busy night, people thought that waving a ยฃ20 note under your nose, like you’re some sort of poll dancer would somehow make them get served faster, irrespective of where they were in the queue.

    That’s not a petty annoyance, it’s the very worst thing in the world.

    People blocking pavements, cycle routes and chewing up all of the verges with their cars ‘cos they’re too bloody lazy to walk 30 seconds!!

    You buy a house with one car parking space and have 2 cars that’s doesn’t make the pavement your personal car park!

    And! that’s hugely compounded the the useless local and county councils, police, and a couple of local councillors who have done sweet FA about it when I’ve complained.

    Actually maybe not petty, makes my blood boil when I can’t get past with my son in tow in his buggy and the only choice is miles round the houses on narrow roads with cars park everywhere or a fast dual carriageway ๐Ÿ‘ฟ โ—

    My ex used to mispronounce things all the time and then absolutely insist his way was right even if shown the correct pronunciation in a dictionary!

    Seeing the words “contains milk” on a pack of butter

    People changing their kids’ nappies on cafe/restaurant tables even when a baby changing room available – totally grim and offputting.

    So true. Though there is a sub set of women who when it comes to the paying bit act all shocked and then rummage through 3 or 4 purses in their bags to find that coupon for 5p off only to be told it ran out 2 months ago. There then follows a debate about which card to use and then when they make their mind up can’t remember the bloody PIN so have to go through every combination outloud to the now muttering shoppers waiting to get through the till!

    My step mother being one of those women ๐Ÿ™

    They’re the same people who answer “no” when asked if they’d like a hand with their packing, then pack one item a fortnight.

    Parking is a major annoyance of mine, I don’t think people should be allowed to buy a car unless they prove they’ve got an off road parking spot for it. I’ve no problem with people visiting friends or whatever and temporarily parking at the side of the road, but the habitual parking on some of the streets ’round here is ridiculous.

    It’s made worse by people being too lazy to reverse into their driveways and people who insist on parking their work van at their house. Your house is not your workplace, park your van at work and drive there in the morning to pick your van up. The suburban residential streets in the vast majority of the UK are simply not designed for or capable of handling the volume of cars or the width/weight of commercial vehicles.

    My ex used to mispronounce things all the time and then absolutely insist his way was right even if shown the correct pronunciation in a dictionary!

    I once used to really fancy a girl until I realised she used the word ‘brought’ instead of ‘bought’, went right off her after that.

    Also people that write ‘to’ when they mean ‘too’. Argh!

    I did wonder about that. Given the extra effort we all know it must require, it all seems a bit ‘Loooooook at meeeeeeee’!

    LED headlights. Is it only me that can see them strobing? the light is far to harsh for road use, just look at the crisp edges on the shadows.

    In my opinion illegal, as they are a clear distraction and nuisance to other road users
