  • Small things that annoy you

    You know those little everyday general things that are so annoying? How many can you think of? For example...

    Waiting in the "10 items or less" queue in a supermarket and somebody has about 20 items.
    Discovering there's no milk left and you can't be arsed going to the shop.
    Being behind someone driving 30mph in a 60mph zone.
    Traffic lights that are on green for 5 seconds and then on red for 5 minutes.
    Perfectly capable singers (i.e. Girls Aloud) that constantly mime.
    Sitting down on the sofa to realise that the TV is switched off at the plug.
    Paying for a cheap item with a 20 note and being given a dirty look.


    Can you relate to any of these?

    I don't normally worry about people who do stupid but petty little things like that.

    One pre-Christmas lunchtime at Asda though, a couple were in the express lane in front of myself and a colleague.

    They had two trolleys stacked full!

    When somebody complained they refused to back down, the manager ended up being called. How pathetic.

      People who just stop and start chatting in the middle of the pavement. Oh my god, that gets on my nerves so much. They don't even make an effort to move. :x

      And I hate people who throw strops in shops because they're overcharged by something tiny like a quid. Fair enough if you mention it, but don't get all huffy and nasty. :x

      And don't even get me started on tantrum throwing kids in shops. :evil:
      i know love doesn't change a thing

        When you're due at work in 10 minutes it's crucial!

        I hate people who stand in the middle of pavements too, or walk really slowly and take up all the space. You go to walk around them and they go in the same direction :x

              And when I'm not quite so near the posting limit, I'll add a few more.
              This post is highly unlikely to be serious. Please treat it accordingly. Unless it's music-related, in which case I'm damn well right.

                  People who decide to charge up their bus cards on the bus and it takes forever.
                  Buses that don't turn up on time.
                  Paying with notes on the bus and the bus driver glares at you.
                  Slow bus drivers.
                  When all the seats are taken on the bus and the only seat left is next to some weird looking person who you'd rather NOT sit next to.
                  When somebody comes and sits next to you on the bus and you have to get off in a few stops and you can't be arsed asking them to move.

                  Look at that, all my annoyances are about the bus! And these all happened today...

                    People with their mobile phones on that ring during a movie.

                    Kids who are constantly talking throughout a movie their parents/grandparents/some adults are trying to watch (this is what happened when I went and saw Love Actually at the cinema - to add to that, the kid starts wriggling around and crawling on the cinema floor :evil: and I told one of his grandmothers twice to control the damn kid, he still mucked up :evil: )

                    People who walk really slow (ok if they're hobbling along then that's ok, but for others, it's not acceptable).

                    Stupid parents who take their kids into libraries and then the kids don't shut up or they start throwing a tanty & crying (the latter thing happened today - I could've killed the kid - haha, so much for me wanting kids when I'm older ).

                    Train delays (got stuck in one the other day cos of a signal failure ).
                    Let's embrace the point of no return.

                      Bus drivers in general, they're all so bitter.

                      Teeny boppers who think they've got a great taste in music, and think they're "rockers" when they listen to The Rasmus, and 50 Cent. And that's it. :x


                      People who obsess over phones, like "My phone's better that yours, because it has a camera, and MP3 player, Java, bla bla bla" I don't care, I have a camera and an MP3 Player, so I don't need one on a phone.

                      Cars - not cars in general, but my best mate is so obsessed with them, it's unbelievable. According to what he's said, he wants about 60 cars when he's older, so yeah, I'll leave that one to him/
                      this town was meant for passing through but it ain't nothing new

                        In order of degree of annoyance:
                        1. Old people.[/*:m:1hdeisk2]
                        2. Really young people (children).[/*:m:1hdeisk2]
                        3. Young people (teenagers).[/*:m:1hdeisk2]
                        4. Everyone else.[/*:m:1hdeisk2]

                        That pretty much covers it.
                        For every chance you take, spare a thought for the thousands you don't!

                          People who start talking to each other in stupid places like STAIRS(!) and I even saw 2 cars stop at the corner of a busy road so they could have a chat!!

                          Getting all settled to watch TV before realising that the remote is over the other side of the room

                          Couples that have been together 5 minutes saying 'oh shes the one we're gona be together forever' when you know they are gonna be the first ones to break up

                          'Friends' who only get in touch with you when they want something

                          Ill think of loadddds more later

                            My parents' table manners.

                            My Dad eats loudly, eats with his mouth open and talks with his mouth full, I can't stand it, I have to go out of the room when he does that!

                            My Mum is more or less the same, just not as bad...
                            Don't explain yourself 'cos talk is cheap,
                            There's more important things than hearing you speak.

                              Hee hee, ranting, yay!

                              My ideas:
                              People who think Evanescense is real music.

                              Bad drivers (I know I wrote off a car but I'm a good driver normally!). Also slow drivers. Grannies usually. I tend to go as fast as I can right behind them to get on their nerves. Childish and dangerous yes, but they're SO annoying.

                              People I serve at work (I'm a waitress) who blatantly haven't read the menu properly.
                              Pleb: "I'd like the potato shells, please."
                              Me: "with cheese and bacon or salsa and sour cream?"
                              Pleb: "What?! Oh... um...."

                              I'll think of more soon.
                              Monday - humiliation;
                              Tuesday - suffocation;
                              Wednesday - condescention;
                              Thursday is pathetic;
                              by Friday, life has killed me...

                                That would be #1 in my list.

                                I can't stand any noise that will distract me from a movie I really want to watch. So I either

                                a. avoid going to the cinema
                                b. choose a film that I suppose only a few people will go to
                                c. choose some time when the cinema won't be crowded, after midnight or at noon
                                d. get involved in fights inside the theatre.

                                    However, there are far greater things to be annoyed by, than the fact someone thinks a pop song is "proper music". You really do need to get out a hell of a lot more if thats your number 1 gripe. How judgemental? :evil:

                                        Or how about people who are still attached to a 60s TV show and won't shut the f**k up about the movie version they don't have to go and see anyway?
                                        i know love doesn't change a thing
