    People who fail to realise that this thread is for trivial things, and not just things in general that annoy them. The government, for example, is not a trivial thing.

    Zip ties, which appear re-usable but you actually end up snapping the missus kitchen knife blades off trying to prise the fecker lose.
  • The phrase 'main protagonists'. Not strictly incorrect as a weakened form of the word, but to me you're either the protagonist or you're not, and it gets my goat, I'm afraid.

    Writing 'loose' when you mean 'lose'.

    Those sentence fragments Americans use when they're trying to be all portentous:

    'The best bicyclists in the world were lining up to take the wounded Armstrong's crown. Couldn't do it.'

    People who stand and huddle by the entrance of trains when they are busy, but the aisles clear.

    People who get up ready to leave trains about five minutes before they actually stop.

    Tasteless bananas.

    Apples when they are a bit ‘mushy’.

    The phrase ‘safeguards’ when used by politicians etc.

    The one that strangling my rabbit at the moment is fecking brake-lights (and so Capt Slog opens the motoring can of worms to all comers :lol: ).

    Most cars on the road have MOTs, so it follows that most have working handbrakes, so why don't they use the buggers instead of sitting for five minutes in a queue with their foot on the brake? :evil:

    I have to sit behind one of these arseholes seemingly everyday and I'm dazzled by their brake-lights, often enough to bring on a head-ache.
    The older I get, the better I was.

    Call it "booty" if you like, to me it's still a fat @rse.
  • I am the calmest of men, as people at the Anger Management course would attest, little disturbs me. But using 'definitive' when you mean 'definite' does.

    exhale....... tranquil.

    Yep, they're trivial (shouldn't it be 'intolerance of other people's culture and the Dutch?).
  • But using 'definitive' when you mean 'definite' does.
    Ah yes, that reminds me. People writing 'defiantly' when they mean 'definitely'.
    Is the gorilla tired yet?

    Remembering how to spell the word 'definitely' is quite annoying actually.

    To return to the earlier bogroll theme: those institutional toilet roll holders that have a massive roll locked in a big metal/plastic cover. Yes, I know they're so much more hygienic, rolls don't go missing etc., but do they have to be designed so that the perforation ALWAYS breaks off deep inside the cover, leaving you scrabbling around inside it to try and find the end?
    I spent, oh I don't know, maybe half an hour, maybe a fortnight, in Ikea the other day after a hurried trip to the bogs with Bompetta (who's doing, errr, fairly well with toilet training at the mo) saw me put her on the seat without realising there was no paper in that cubicle. So I quickly went to the next one, and by the time I had eventually got some paper out, almost without swearing or shrieking, she had managed to slide off and toddle round to find out what the delay was, with her pants round her ankles. Cue need for rather a lot more paper to clean up the mess...


    There, glad I've got that off my chest. Next episode, drivers who ambiguously wave you on when it's not actually safe for you to do so, and everyone would have got out quicker if they'd just gone first when they had priority...
  • And another thing....

    People who call me "mate" when they want something.

    So so shallow.

    I once overheard a conversation between a waiter and a customer....
    Customer "oi mate get me this"
    Waiter "mate? When have I ever sent you a Christmas card"
    Customer "?"
    Waiter "I'm not your f*cking mate then!"

    It's like those who are on facebook saying "I have 50000 friends". They are not really your true friend. A true friend will help you with anything without question or motive and always be there for you. I have lots of acquaintances and work colleagues but how many will be a true friend?

    People who chew with their mouths open.

    People who breathe loudly.

    Fat people who breathe through their mouths.

    People who sniff constantly, especially on trains. Blow your f*****g nose!

    No, but the things they do are Trivial, but make them oh so annoying!

    So it's not just me then. Good shout - extremely irritating.

    People on this forum who refer to newbies as 'young padawan'. How patronising.

    People who just have to unclick their seatbelt on a plane before it's finished taxiing to a stop and the seatbelts fastened light is still on - Do you really think you're going to get off quicker by doing this you complete ar5e?

    Some usuals:
    People who don't say thanks when you hold a door open or let them through - no excuse you rude feckers
    People who tailgate me in the car - were you born without a braincell?

    Oh and people who put the phone on speaker when dialling a number in the office, or listening to hold music.

    Seriously. I contemplate the many, varied and painful ways they will die.

    Mine are all flying related

    1. New parents who think theyre the first people in the world to have children... "Look at me wandering round the plane with my screaming child - bet you've never seen one of these before"

    2. The look you get from people in club/business/premium while you make your way to row 265 in economy

    3. Sitting next to the morbidly obese in economy

    Perhaps I should travel by train in future

    The way Fiona Bruce moves her head as she reads the news.

    Drivers who use fog lights when there is no f*cking fog.

    Petrol Stations that double up as supermarkets, so forcing you to wait in a queue while someone does their weeks food shop! Go to a bloody proper supermarket and just let me pay for my fuel please!

    I swear, if I see another f**king meerkat :evil:

    They're in every shop I go to. I can't get away from them. Even on holiday in museum gift shops. Who's f'ing buying these things?

    Every time I see his smug little face I think of what weapon I would use to shoot his head off?
