    We all get irritated by certain things in day to day life. Most of them are explainable, for example, I commute into London every day and my biggest gripe is the complete lack of consideration the majority of people show for others, ignorantly blocking people's way and making the process so much harder for everyone else but themselves.

    But what about those things that irritate the hell out of you that have no 'real' reason behind them?

    Some of mine:

    Women who carry their bags in the crook of their elbow. What's wrong with your hands? You look like a pretentious **** walking around like that. Stop it.

    Men in skinny jeans. Seriously, do you have any idea of how fucking retarded you look? In a few years time people will be looking back and shaking their heads... the biggest fashion faux pas since the male perm.

    Horizontal stripey clothing.

    City business men that start drinking on the way home on the train. Can you really not wait an hour before starting your stella binge? You look worse than a tramp when you do this.

    Pretty much anything elderly people do.

    Children.

    Anyone that drives a 911. Get some fucking imagination and stop buying them, please. They're the new TTs. You can't go 5 minutes down the road without seeing some smug **** thinking they're the bollocks because they drive a car that Top Gear likes.

    What are yours? I can't think of anymore off-hand, but no doubt something will gripe me soon again for no reason and I'll be sure to let you know ;)

    Pretty much every journalist ever for not giving two figs about the truth if they even have the wit to figure it out.

    (Except Ben Goldacre)

    People who have no understanding of statistics.

    People who don't understand that correlation is not cause.

    Twats who encourage that point of view to sell papers/get laws passed/turn us into sheeple/sell us useless guff.

  18. Arnie 2Tone

    Arnie 2Tone Fledgling Freddie

    People who play music on their mobile phones in public without using headphones, especially the ones that even do it in shops and bars.

    People who spit. Everytime I see someone spit I want to smash their teeth with a brick so they've actually got a reason to be spitting.

    People who try to make you feel inferior despite having nothing that should make them feel superior. Many waiters for example.

    People who throw in "like", "know what I mean", "at the end of the day" and other such meaningless and unnecessary embellishment in to every conversation, every two words.

    People who use the word 'literally' incorrectly, i.e. "I literally died when I heard!". If only!

    There are probably many, many other examples of types of people who annoy me. I'm a bit of a misanthrope really.

    Jupitus Old and short, no wonder I'm grumpy! Staff member Moderator FH Subscriber

    No, I can't, but it's Fosters not Stella :(

    Irritating?

    The fact that when I highlight text in a 'quoted post' to delete the additional crap, it always tries to highlight the '[/' part of the post.

    Those fucking annoying little cases on wheels with long handles that lazy people insist on dragging around the tube system to try to trip you up.

    People stopping at random when walking down the street ahead of me.

    Celebrities who shouldn't be - e.g. Posh, KK, Jordan, Jade Fatbags Goody and so on....

    Staff in tescos shopping for internet orders.

    Ghurka drivers (you need to live in Sandhurst for that one).

    Chavs.

    Parents with no control of their kids.

    Sales calls.

    That'll do for now.

    Oh - and I have been spitting recently, but only because I have had a really clogged up chest and it's 'better out than in' as they say... ewww :(

    Trem That there, that's not me. Moderator

    Wow almost exactly what I would of said, I removed cricket because I quite like that sometimes.

    I also hate selfish people.

    I also absolutely fucking hate the scum that would fight at a football match for their country but would shit a brick if they actually fought for their country. I actually quite hate all this British and best bollocks, its a shit country filled with shit people for the most part.
