    People who dawdle. Have some purpose to your pathetic little life & walk FASTER!

    Went i'm out on my ride, other riders who check my bike/wheels/kit/gear /whatever out & just totally ignore me. It's just weird. At least have the gumption to say hi. Concentrate on your own bike & f**k off!!

    Call centres, all of them, especially those based overseas when you can't understand the operater.

    Everything Everywhere coverage where i live. Yeah right, more like Nothing Nowhere!

    Men who wear skinny jeans. Just no.

    Agree with so many of the above suggestions. My personal grammatical hatred is the swapping of the word "have" with the word "of" in the phrases would have, could have, should have. That really grates with me.
    Poor manners in general but especially to shop staff or waiting staff. Yes, it is their job to serve you, but a simple please and thank you is not too much to ask either.
    Something else that winds me up on a daily basis is people who can't park their car properly. The number of times I pull up to a space and see the car in the adjacent space at a ridiculous angle with the wheels at full lock and think to myself, " if I park my car there they will almost certainly clip it on the way out before they get a chance to straigthen up" and then end up choosing a different space miles away from where I want to be.
    So many trivial annoyances to choose from, probably won't be able to sleep now. Grrrr.

    Virgin Fibre for cabling the first 100 metres of our street but not the rest - and then continually sending me junk mail telling me I live in a cabled area and can get super-fast broadband. How about you spend some of the money you are wasting sending out pointless leaflets to actually run a cable up to my house?

    And on a similar theme, BT constantly boasting about how they are upgrading Infinity from Super Fast to Mega Fast, and then six months later, Even F**king Faster Infinity, all the while ignoring the fact that they haven't upgraded half the country to "basic" Infinity. Here's a hint, sort that out first before before giving Johnny City-Dweller the ability to download a whole HD movie in 1 nanosecond instead of 2.

    Smokers. Don't come and sit next to me after you've just had a cigarette. YOU. STINK.
  • The way that one of my housemates insists on making a pot of tea in the morning, puts it on the breakfast table and takes the carton of milk out of the fridge and puts that on the table so she can make multiple brews as she watches telly. Angers me that she has the milk on the table out of the fridge.

    In fact, anytime anyone keeps something that belongs in the fridge out on worktop/table.

    The bloke I know who rides 15-20 miles a week, and talks it up like he's in the pro-peleton. Complete with personalised frame decals with his name and Union Jack and the race number mount for his brake boss.

    The way said tool, 'carb loads' (pre 45 min ride) with a gel and energy drink, taking energy gels and bars with him.

    Aaaargh! FFS - just get some miles in!!!!

    how some people get so caught up and intense over trival arguments especially on the web. Reminds me of the play I saw last night (A chorus of disapproval) in which the main character ponders on why he gets so worked up over little things in reagds to the play he is trying to direct when out in the real world there are bigger issues going on.

    People who talk on their mobile phones on trains & buses. Especially when it is REALLY F**KING loud. It is never about anything important, just banal drivel. Have your silly little chat in your own privacy, you rude annoying moron.

    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?

    On that theme, I once took the Eurostar from Paris and when the gates opened people started running to get to the train. The train wasn't due to leave for another 20 minutes and everyone has a reserved seat, so what's the f**king point?

  • People in supermarket car parks who don't park in the designated bays. They either park right by the door or in the marked off area's at the end of each row.

    People who can't put trolleys back properly. They either leave them in a parking space (usually the one you want) or they casually chuck them in the general vicinity of the trolley bay and end up spilling onto the road because they have been slotted in to the one in front. The bay probably holds about 100 parked properly, instead there is 15 randomly chucked in.

    BMW X1, X3, X5 and X6 drivers (i could go on and on about these [email protected]) who for some reason have to have a personalised registration plate containing X1, X3, X5 or X6. It might be just in my area but there's loads of the feckers up here doing it. No other marque drivers seem to do it so why do these [email protected] have to?

    Where did these come from?

    I passed early stages a few years ago! The shirts even have to be in a certain order pertaining to colour and shade ( :oops: ) which is fine until I buy some new shirts and then it's an hour re-organising them (there are about 60 or so) until I am happy again.

    Another I was reminded of today - plug sockets turned on when there is no plug in them.

    I'm with you there. :)

    However, I prickle when people talk of "plug sockets" (aren't they all?) instead of electricity sockets. :D:D

    20 bags, 2 pushchairs and 6 kids? Really? On an Edinburgh-London train? Did you really think there'd be room for all that - with unreserved seats tickets - when it eventually passed through Grantham? Oh you did? Well then you're as f***ing stupid as you are f***ing annoying.

    So...

    People with too much luggage and/or too many kids on public transport.
    Tourists.
    Wheelsuckers (one in particular who I see regularly who sat on my wheel down to 13mph before I waved him on, in a little experiment I did).
    Charity Muggers. F*** OFF.
    Women who think they can flutter the eyelashes and get what they want. BLOW ME!
    People who dawdle.
    "Oh you're going to London? Which show are you seeing?"
    Pedestrians who are so arrogant they simply walk out in front of traffic. One day, someone will become pavement art at Euston Circus and I'll be stood there with a 'told you so' look on my smug face.

    Not in a good mood today, lads.

    "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!"

    Remember when the government sparked panic buying of fuel a while ago? I thought I was going to witness a murder on a gridlocked garage forecourt in Nottingham which also housed a Tesco Express. Woman emerges from shop with 3 huge bags of shopping and totters to her car parked at the pump. Puts the shopping in the boot, and as we were all expecting her to drive away, instead she then commenced filling the car with petrol. I honestly thought a taxi driver was going to attack her :shock:
