little things that annoy the shit out of you

Recommended Posts

TV shows in which the volume goes up, down and all over the place. Especially galling if you’re trying to watch telly in bed and don’t want to wake the kids up. I have to lay there with the remote in my hand so I’m instantly ready to higher it up or lower it down.

 

This annoys the shit out of me. Either I use headphones or I keep the volume low and use subtitles.

The ubiquity of podcasts is getting annoying.  Either you have something hugely important to say that has never been said before or shut up and stop contributing to the noise in the world.

Or when the adverts come on and suddenly the volume increases +20

I often use both headphones and subtitles at the same time.I'm also waiting for my bus pass to come through!

I'm sure this has been mentioned but when people ordering coffee say 'Can I get a...?'. My sister in law is a fucker for it. The other day we went to a cafe for lunch and she orders everything normally until the coffee which she apparently wants to 'get'. She's not up for getting her sandwich but she really wants to fetch her own coffee.

 

Oh, and Americans who say "I could care less" when they mean the exact fucking opposite.

Just ring the cafe in advance and set it up so they reply, yer can get fucked love, but you can have a coffee.

 

Should chill her out a bit, it is a very Australian phrase though.

 

I was talking to an aws engineer today in work, he started on ‘ you’ve been on the journey’ as I cut him short and said ‘no fucking journeys, no reaching out, we’ve successfully deployed an app in dev and we are gonna deploy in test.

To be fair he started laughing, and said fair enough.

People cry arse about the weather in the UK all the time but then when we get a nice bit of weather no-one sits outside to have their lunch in the seated, astroturfed suntrap my work has created for this purpose.  They sit in the break room with sky news on loop listening to other boring cunts talk about work whereas I'm outside listening to dark side of the moon getting a tan.

You posted the same thing three hours ago in a different thread. You must get a decent dinner break in your place.

Flying insects. Annoying fucking cunts. I've just spent the last half hour chasing a wasp and a bluebottle trying to catch them in a tub. It's not so much them being insects that annoys me. It the fucking noise they make, especially when they're hitting the window.

Invest in one of these. Reserved only for wasps and those really annoying flies that never fuck off when they get the chance. Not to be used on spiders, bees, cats, dogs or children as that's just barbaric.

 

They emit a mild electric current and make a satisfying crack when swatted then proceed to cook if you keep applying the button.927fb9d1b620c364de1b5d11f2890147.jpg

When those fancy foreign types in Brussels decided to change privacy laws, did they give any thought to those of us with 10 different betting accounts?

I've got at least three or four times that many myself but its not just for bookies and casinos etc. Its insurance companies,banks etc too. It does have an upside though as those companies who keep spamming you after you expressed a brief interest in their products now cannot continue to pester you,I hope.

This GDPR shite is doing my head in at the moment, 7.5hrs a day at work with it & then e-mails from every website I've ever bought anything from coming into my inbox all day.

 

Those pensioners who avoid computers like the plague will be having the last laugh after all, the grave dodging twats.

Jeans that have pockets seemingly designed to let all your change fall out whenever you sit down.

 

That seems to be the way most trousers and jeans are made these days. Useless for holding anything and only suitable for those with Beadle hands.

People who think rules don't apply to them.

 

Cunts who park their cars on yellows on busy corners, cunts who skip queues, cunts who park in disabled bays because "I won't be long".

 

Cunts.
