Chebby gave me the idea for this, he clearly got out of the wrong side of his bunk this morning ...

Things that annoy me;

When it's cheaper to buy two separate items, rather than one large one, of the same thing in the supermarket.

Drivers that hog my tail bumper, usally, though not exclusively, young women and probably due to that phenomenon more attributable to females; A lack of spatial awareness. Yes I know, I probably have to apologize for that one too ...

Re: What annoys you?


On the contrary, I find it is men who do that, more often than not. Though admittedly it may be something lacking in their masculinity which leads them to do this.

But to answer the question - vending machines that eat your money and then andicate responsibilty and tell you to phone somebody in Preston. I'm thirsty NOW!

Of course, Red 3 is now a woman, Flight Lieutenant Kirsty Moore, so that theory may not hold up to well under scrutiny ...


Perhaps she is on steroids Big Smile

Not always the case. I never drive below the speed limit. Why don't they overtake from the right side instead?

Re: What annoys you?

Bad driving that impacts and risks other people.

Bad wine.

Wine marketing.

Rudeness. Prime examples are cold callers.

Cold callers.

Petrol prices.

A gov't that thinks that earning £44k makes a household rich, making it their 'duty' to subsidise everyone else.

At last, some politics!

For me:

1) Clegg & Cameron's mantra/twaddle about governing in the "national interest".
2) When Michael Gove opines on education.
3) Baroness Warsi - class and race traitor!!!
4) Vince Cable*


* redemption clause applies when he resigns and the Con-demned coalition crumbles.

5) Labour's electoral college depriving the party of it's Prime Minister in waiting.
6) Joss Stone. Just because.
7) not being able to readily purchase the New Statesmen yesterday in Wakefield.

Re: What annoys you?

In no particular order, typing as I think of things...

Robbie Savage

Reality TV  (in fact the whole "Celebrity" obsession these days)

People who don't understand mini roundabouts and yellow box junctions

Robbie Savage

 CD packaging (still!)

Radio phone-ins (particularly 606 see also Robbie Savage)

Companies who say "well at least you've got a job" when you've not had a rise in 3 years

Robbie Savage

Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole et al (music "experts" indeed Sad)

and finally on every Hi-Fi forum, people who comment "expertly" on kit they've never heard.

Re: What annoys you?

A culture that elevates the prosaic, manufactured, and banal to lofty artistic status through marketing and critical hyperbole (and the ease with which some buy into it).

Notably bland examples: Coldplay; Snow Patrol; all reality TV; any film directed by Christopher Nolan, oh, you could go on forever...

Re: What annoys you?

1) Middle class stay-at-home mothers (whose OHs earn a small fortune)  bleating about the possibility of losing £90 a week Range Rover petrol money/Filipino servants wages  child benefit for Tabatha, Jocasta, Raoul, Julian and Siegfried. "Don't they realise that even b####y Bedales is £28,000 a year now?"

To which I say... "Get a job you pampered parasite!"

2) Enormous sports Range Rovers, full of unbelted and straw boater'ed & be-blazered kids, driven at 60mph down 20mph residential roads by Hermes scarf wearing women too busy arguing with their domestic help agencies (or Bedales admissions office) on their mobile phones to notice how many wing mirrors they have knocked off or how many baby strollers are flying through the air in their wake.
