....... Especially those from countries that drive on the wrong side of the road...!

 

1) There is no right or wrong side of the road. Speaking from many years of driving on both sides of the road - e.g. in Russia (DL), Spain, Italy, France, USA (DL) and New Zealand (DL).

 

2) When one quotes huge post with pictures and reply to only 0.09% of that post is one little thing which is "really annoying" on forums. Does not add any value, fun, or information..IMHO.

 

P.S. Please do not take it personal as many people do that unintentionally...

Another annoyance for me is the way the keyboard on my Samsung S6 deletes .. if you tap the delete button it deletes one character at a time (great!), if you hold the delete it deletes back one character at a time with no tapping required (awesome!) .. if you hold that delete too long though it accelerates to light speed and deletes your entire message in a picosecond!  (fecking annoying!!!!)

  I once armadillo and then bought a bannister!  My wife surfed the washing and it came out like a donkey!
I recently signed off a text with an abbreviation of my name, 'Lin' and it went out with 'Lincolnshire'!

 

Ah lovely Lincolnshire!

In fast food drive thru's, people who cannot make up their mind what to order, even after they have been sitting in the queue with the menu billboard in front of them for the last 10 minutes ( as the previous car to them had also dicked around making up their mind as to what to order !!!!).

 

 

 

Then to top it off, change their order when they get to the pick-up window !!!

When each person in the car does that, and then when the 3rd person orders something the first didnt think about, the first person wants to change their order to include what the 3rd person wanted. And then at the pay window the machine is in and out the window 4 times because none of them have bloody paywave.

TV programs that run over schedule, and cause the DVR to miss the last important few minutes cliffhanger ...

Never a problem for me, the people that capture it and put it up on the trackers take care of all that, and removing the ad breaks etc too ;)

The coffee cup holders in my current car ( 2014 Toyota Corolla ) are in the wrong place - they sit right under the dash, requiring quite a reach to retrieve for the necessary slurp of coffee.

 

Previous Corolla had the holders next to the handbrake - much more intuitive ....

I do, occasionally, be honest and watch the FTA recordings, but when the schedule overruns, then I am again forced to return to the trackers, or watch it FTA streaming sites (once the adverts have finished ...... )

jonathan18: Those who think the use of the Oxford comma should be forced upon all others. 

 

I don't force it on others, but the Oxford comma (or serial comma) is awesome!
