I better stop, as I'm now getting annoyed just thinking about it!
Guilty. Though it was only me in it at the time, I got out straight after, and sent it down to some poor unsuspecting victim.
My problem is, I look guilty (even when I'm not)!
"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again." André Gide
There's a skill to looking innocent, and I've mastered it.
I haven't, and that's why it made my list.
Lack of lane discipline. People who drift out of their lanes, oh my god I hate them so much I can't put it in to words. Not with this sites swear filter at least. Hate hate hate.
50 shades of grey. Wrong for more reasons than Gel has creme eggs.
My inability to remember peoples names under pressure
People who go WHEEEEYHEEEEY when some one drops a glass in a pub
Invaders of personal space. Especially the ones who when you retreat backwards a foot they follow, and your conversation slowly crawls backwards across the room.
Top 100 most influential album lists that only feature guitar based music. There are other ways of making music chaps...
People assuming just because something is animated that it must be for kids.
People saying "Hashtag" in real life before making a point. I actualy heared a group of late teens saying "Hashtag Hottness" and "Hashtag Fit". I hope that does not become a thing...
EDITED cyclists making drivers think we are all EDITED.

Old proverb: when there are two men in a lift and one of them f*rts, both men know who did it .
My pet hates - don't get me started....
Buying a loaf of bread & finding you have an odd number of slices which means you are one slice short of a sandwich
I've often been called one sandwich short of a picnic, but never one slice short of a sandwich....
You're supposed to hate "yoof speak," it's an inevitable consequence of getting older. For what it's worth, I share your pain. Fortunately most will grow out of it...

Aaah, that explains why I've only got 5 of them, must admit scanning through the list I did start feeling like Jack Nicholson in Batman "Cr ap, cr ap, cr ap, cr ap...".
I'm not going to list mine as I think I contributed the first time this thread came up, might be wrong. "Everything" would just about cover it though...
Edit: bloody swear-filters that are too clever by half, let's put that in there as well...
No signature worth mentioning...
Hahaha! Brilliant! I love it!
That was deliberate wasn't it?
I don't think so!
I'd like to claim credit, but I'm not sure what I'd be taking credit for. Was it the suggestion of "growing pains?"
Err, no, it was the irony (I think) of complaining about annoying phrases by using one of the most irritating phrases of the last 30 years (there's a reason Team America included an empath...). Oh well, not to worry!
I'll plead ignorance on the basis that there's at least some distinction between "yoof speak" and grammatically correct hackneyed phrasing.
