People who have the right of way driving and wave you ahead of them.

If you would just drive by the rules and conventions then it would be a safer smoother drive. Now the people behind you are breaking unnecessarily and unexpectedly. Your kindness while appreciated is really causing more harm than good. Thank...but just drive like you're supposed to.

jonathan18: A lack of "pleases" and "thank-yous' on this forum - how hard is it you use these words when asking for/receiving help/advice??!!

A misuse of the term "percentage" when the writer/speaker actually means "percentage point".

People who don't signal.

People who signal incorrectly at roundabouts.

People who whine about small things that really annoy them.

People that list multiple things that annoy them when they have been asked to provide a singular example, by way of the use of the word "something", rather than "things"

In saying that, I share most of these gripes, too.

Thank you, please.

Not sure if this is small but...I have to take medication. Most of it I will have to take every day, forever, and will soon cease to be if I do not.

Why, then, must I pay a doctor to issue a repeat prescription every 3 months?!

Because some people don't need to take long term medicine forever, and the change required to differentiate means someone will likely get missed.  

 

Also gives you an opportunity to raise any other concerns you otherwise might not.

Oh, I just took it that the "s" missing at the end of the word "something" had accidentally got lost along with the apostrophe...

You're welcome! (Edit - should that be "your welcome"?)

You have lovely manners and surprisingly good grammar, considering you're on the internet.

That's also something that annoys me...when people simply forego grammar, manners and other basic human niceties, the moment they get on the internet.

AND PEOPLE WHO SHOUT AT ME IN FORUMS.

I envisage a day when supermarkets won't let you buy a trolley full of stuff, so that you have to come back the next day. This will be a service to customers who otherwise might not have come back if they forgot something.

That should be "when people simply forego grammar, manners, and other basic human niceties, the moment they get on the internet."

You're welcome.

The term "could of" or "should of" etc...

As in "I could of finished high school, but I don't think I needed to".

Handsomedan: People that don't like kids.

They are small humans.

Were you never a kid?




I don't mind children but when I am trying to mind my own business and a child is being a little sh* t or screaming and the parent isn't doing a damn thing about it that is when I hate children.


Respectful and polite children I don't have an issue with. Good parenting is becoming a rarity because people are so involved with their phones.

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

and - back to something i do find really if irrationally irritating - the writing of those who can't seem to find the shift key on their keyboard.

That should have been a capital I above - you use the shift key for that I think..... :)
