Generation I can't be bothered annoys me.


People that don't clean up after themselves at McDonald's and people that pull stuff out of packaging in retail stores and just leave a mess lying around.


That's just pure laziness and no consideration for others. Usually followed by 'it keeps someone in a job' justification for lazy man logic.


I noticed the future north you go, the worse is it.


I notice this one all the time.  Particularly at the movie theaters.


One HUGE little thing that pisses me off is idiots on the footpath walking two abreast.  When I'm walking past, they refuse to budge and essentially force me on to the grass.  What the hell is up with that?  I'd do some "educating", but I'm usually walking during work hours with a uniform on close to home base and we suffer terribly from tagging and general vandalism already.  Last thing I need is to be the reason for an arson attack or something.


Aside to that is people riding their bikes on the footpath.  I actually don't mind (and don't blame Auckland cyclists one bit for doing it) unless they're coming within millimeters of me at 20KM/h and then cussing me out for being in their way.  When you are passing a pedestrian, get off your damn bike!



 


Yep, I have had occasion to have to go on the grass with my chair or stop so they can go their way. I to have been verbally accosted by cyclist for being in their way in my chair, most recently on Oriental Parade.


That's shocking behaviour. No cyclist I know behaves like that, but like most things it only takes a few..

Consumer goods on sale at major retailers with pricing that indicate a premium product.... but then you check the overseas websites and find that it is a low-end budget model selling for 1/3 the NZ price. 

 

Looking at you Harvey Norman!!!

Any product advertised as "European style." Utterly meaningless babble.

Unknown subcontractors of Chorus leaving rubbish behind by the UFB cabinet in my street. There's a cardboard box, cut off bits of fibre and other UFB related stuff left on the footpath and in the gutter this week. Not a good look guys.

 

 

Someone must have read my earlier post. All the crap that was left behind has now been cleaned up.

When the Dunedin City Council show on a map which streets they grit during winter...and then don't do it.

 

"I'm sorry Sir I cant put you through to roading right now, I'm sure you can appreciate how busy they are clearing up accidents after last nights frost..."

 

Well, if they had done their job in the first place..???

All the pedestrian crossings in Lower Hutt that are much too close to the roundabouts. If someone's approaching or on the crossing and you stop at the line (like the Subaru in the pic below) you end up blocking the intersection.

Very poor design.

Actually I was going to write, all Lower Hutts roundabouts in their CBD  annoy me. They have all these horrible tiny roundabouts, which even buses can hardly get around. Round abouts need to be large to work well.

"RSP"

 

Yes I know why - but I'm finding the religious zealotry a bit much to take.
