Coupled with this, undertakers. (No not the ones that plant you) people who fly past you in the inside lane while you are waiting for one of the outside lanes to clear.

On the same subject, (warming to it now) people who are turning right in 600 miles time but get in the lane as soon as the dual starts. You then have the dangerous option of passing in the inside lane, when you are not sure if it is either legal or safe, or hanging around at 35 mph for an hour or so until they reach the turn off

we went to see an early showing of Woman in Black (90 minutes of Harry Potter doing one of his 'tortured soul' faces), but after a couple of minutes realised that the trailer for the Muppet Movie wasn't going to finish any time soon. The fact that two thirds of the cinema was filled with kids should have been a bit of a clue, but I didn't notice until we were on the way out - in the end I wish we'd stayed put and watched the rest of the Muppets.


Hahaha amazing! Did you hear about the cinema that put on the wrong film? They were meant to be showing Madagascar 3 (As you can expect it was full of families and small children) and put on the most recent Paranormal Activity film instead!

Another one I've thought of - people that turn up just as the band starts and stand right in front of you (I'm pretty short so this is a problem) and proceed to talk throughout the entire show. Then when asked (politely might I add!) to move over just a little so I can see, looked at me like a I was scum and turn around.
Yes this may have been a specific time but people that don't pay attention at gigs annoy me when they're so inconsiderate towards others.

Once had a time where me and my brother were both driving back from somewhere on the motorway, and there were numerous middle lane drivers. Suffice to say it was quite fun watching them all pull over after two cars in convoy pulled all the way out from the inside lane overtook them and pulled all the way back to the inside lane.


Also, I'm guessing you are a fan of the Plain English awards - http://www.plainenglish.co.uk/

:D :D :D

I actually did that.
I was about 13 at the time and an 'assistant projectionist' (To whit, I rewound reels and cleaned electrodes) But was actually incharge of the box much of the time as the projectionist had much to do, such as anything electrical in the place, put up flyers for forthcoming films, start times etc.

I had been rewinding returns and he dashed out calling to me 'change the reel will you?'
No problem I had done it hundreds of times.

I finish what I was doing, lace up the reel that was by the projector and wait for the bell, which told me a change was due, and look for the synchronization 'spots' (look at the top right of the screen to see these when you are in pics)

I dont recall the film, but switched over to go into the advertising reel. 8O

It took about 2 min to put the correct reel on the other projector and restart. There were some comments about adds in the middle of the film, but thank goodness nothing too bad.

Its a good job it was not an X in the middle of a kids film like the one above though :]

Women who, after having a bad relationship with a man, go on to state that all Men are this, that, and the other, and refuse to believe that any other Man is any different. The only good thing about it is that when I say something nice, I get the 'Wow, you're such a nice guy.' card. ;)

Brain cancer. Not the cancer itself, but the comments I get, like "Why aren't you dead?" or "Why aren't you in hospital then?" - and the second is not a concern for my health but rather that whoever is asking it does not believe I am being truthful.

Flashing Christmas lights (see above). Everytime I walk through the house at night, when every light is off bar the Christmas tree lights, I seem to get annoying headaches. Apparently I should just look to the ground but that just makes it even worse.

'Friends' who make a meal out of trying to assert their dominance over you, particularly when in the presence of the opposing sex.

Goodwill gestures gone wrong. I walked to the shopping centre closest to my house yesterday, which is a 15 minute walk. Just around the corner from my house was a stray shopping trolly, so I pushed it along the road, bumpy grass, rocks and dirt so that it would be returned to the shopping centre, knowing that an employee wouldn't know it was there. As I was getting closer, I took a left turn, headed straight to the shopping centre. Feeling all good about myself, I was looking around the streets and there I saw, to my disbelief, an older man crossing the road, returning about 4 trollies.

People who think that going to the gym is the be-all end-all.

People who unnecessarily abbreviate words and/or deliberately spell words incorrectly.

Now that's a difficult one. I think they both share responsibility. There are car drivers that are plain stupid, cutting across cyclists like they were not even there.

But equally, cyclists some times behave like idiots. Just like the cyclist going down the wrong way yesterday, in a one way street, not even on the side; instead he was in the middle of the frikking road. I was in the car with my colleague and he almost crashed in to him, no helmet either. And in case of an incident with a car, guess which of the two doesn't have insurance.

Common sense is needed, and many drivers/cyclists just don't use it

People who invade my personal space, who sit close and shake their leg or talk loudly, or accidentally step on my shoe while walking behind me. Even though it rarely happens, it ticks me off.

People who check facebook every 15 mins.

Hip hop and everything involved with it.

Steve Slater and his every word.

American reality shows that revolve around one's daily life, I don't wanna name names because I don't want to bother trying to remember.

Hypocrites.

Over compensation of any kind.

Indian auto rickshaw drivers. I plan to kill some.


more to come..

Oh dont get me wrong.. cyclists in cities and german cyclists are nightmares in general (can't de side if they are pedestrians or vehicles).. but my pet hate is drivers who beep angrily just because you are simply there and they have to wait a few seconds before they overtake..

I know what you mean. When I cycle on the road I always try to be as near the kerb as possible, however this is not always the best; all the drains and potholes seem to be on that side, so makes it difficult to cycle there. But I always try to be the least of a nuisance to the cars as possible, if there's a long uphill with cars behind me, I'll stop to let them through. Makes sense really. I'm also extra careful because in case something happens, I am sure the car will not have the most damage compared to myself!

The thing is that it is 50-50 in my opinion, both sides can be silly. They both need to respect each other, but rarely happens

That reminds me of a time I was driving along the motorway once, nice and quiet, minding my own business, before somebody decided to circle round and round me... in the end I moved across just to stop it going on... ;)

Having to come home for when the landlady is showing prospective tenants round. There's an empty room to show them, why does she need to use mine? I already told her I can get along with anyone, and as long as she doesn't get anyone with a complete lack of respect for that fact I'll be in my final year next year, potentially with an MA student in the room next to mine, then it's all good.

So why does she still figure I need to be here??

The guy on his mobile phone who is lucky or rich enough to have a pit lane / Paddock Club pass for the Grand Prix and wanders into camera shot during a live show and then insists on staying in shot despite the cameraman's and directors best efforts.

I would put money on it that there is no-one on the other end of his phone, and the daft poser has been following the cameras around all day and has missed the race.

How about posting something really considered and thoughtful that gets swamped and ignored in the middle of a thread whilst trolls would rather reply to each others posts and just keep arguing with each other rather than to pay attention to these other posts that have information which would probably render their argument null and void...

I have to put up with so much of this at work and it makes my blood boil. 'Leveraging' is the worst one. Firstly here in the UK it is supposed to be pronounced with an elongated 'e'. Secondly 'leverage' IS NOT A F***ING VERB!!!! IT IS A NOUN!!!! The endless stream of acronyms also drives me up the wall. They are useful abbreviations when typing/writing, but anyone who speaks in acronyms just sounds like a complete tosser. I hate them and try to avoid them wherever possible. It took me nearly a year to (reluctantly) start saying 'DRS' in conversation.


Oh and I also hate it when people put crisps (or chips for our friends in the US) in sandwiches. Horrendous combination.

People (mostly politicians) who make a statement by asking themselves a question and then answering it, for example rather than saying...

I do not want to put crisps on my sandwich...

They say:

Would I want to put crisps on my sandwich? Of course not.

That reminds me of people doing something similar here:

Did Narain cheat? No
Did Alonso pass Newey on track? No
Did Webber eat a cake? Yes


And then the verdict, as if it is a court or something!

People say that they're a sport fan but only like football. And people that say they're a tennis fan but only watch Wimbledon. I'm going to say that's a pretty personal one to me but it just rubs me up the wrong way!

Technically this is not wrong, football is a sport.

I am a massive tennis fan, assuming of course Sharapova is playing Ivanovic. Other than that I tend to lose interest.

Oh I know I just find it annoying. I would refer to them as football fans not sport fans because sport in my head is a pretty collective term.

I've heard someone once saying "LOL" instead of actually laughing... I wanted to punch him!
Ooh, that's a biggie to me. My elder kids do exactly that. Obviously I am not allowed to punch them but if you would like to pop over for tea sometime..!

To expand on that: textspeak. And I mean those who actually speak the way they text. I don't even text the way people text, let alone speak that way so it really gets up my nose. I'd probably be a complete loss on Twatter (although I do actually have Twatter account - must be a touch of the hyprocrite here!).

Never have lunch with me :blush:

What sandwich isn't made better by the addition of some form of fried potato?


Ham, Cheese and Crisp sarnie. Pretty hard to top that.



adds that extra dimension to the dish, brings out the flavour of the ham and cheese

Well... I guess Jamie can stick his 15-minute meals where the sun doesn't shine then!
