Adverts that are technically WRONG.  There's one on the radio at the moment for a high pressure water teeth flosser, where the flosser tosser states that it has 90PSI of "power".  FAIL.

Oh, and signs and road cones in a cycle lane, warning or merging cyclists, where the only reason cyclists need to merge is that there's a bloody sign in their lane!

Similarly, vehicles who don't increase speed in merging lanes to match other traffic.  For some reason they think it is better to stop until there is a large gap.

You always get that one with rifles. If the media want it to sound bad it is a "High powered rifle" even though the rifle has no power, ever - the cartridge loaded in it does. Often, the very same cartridge used every weekend all over NZ for pest control, deer hunting etc etc - yet those are never "high powered rifles"....

Signs to nowhere. Quite common.

 

 

 

For example, a sign to an hotel not too far from here tells you to turn off the main road. Good - done that. It then tells you to turn again. Done that. You then come to a T junction...where there is no sign. At all. So left or right? Toss a coin....

At the gym: People who don't clean the equipment after using it. I don't particularly want to lie down in your pool of sweat, thanks.

Perhaps that means you've passed it?
