View Full Version : What irrational things really irritate you!

05-12-2014, 08:25 PM
Its therapy to share ones annoyances and little quirks.

So what is it that is quite insignificant but really gets you riled.

One of mine is wanton abandonment supermarket trollies and particularly when people just shove their trolleys in the trolley bays without stacking them properly.

Its not that ******* difficult is it?

Little trolleys stack in with little trolleys.
The bigger ones with child seats stack with their fellow kin.

Sometimes I only pop into Tescos for a bottle of wine and then it takes me 6 mins to sort out a trolley bay!!!!!

Please just do it right.

05-12-2014, 08:28 PM
You do know they pay people to do that?

05-12-2014, 08:37 PM
They shouldn't have to!!!

Its costing you extra for your nachos because of wanton abandonment of shopping aids.

Its a public responsibility which appears to be being disregarded. Its a creeping malaise.

A man who refers to his wife as 'the' wife really irritates me.

05-12-2014, 09:01 PM
Yeah I know what you mean - I prefer the term "wifey"

I refer to Sarah as "the first wife" - it keeps her on her toes!

05-12-2014, 09:04 PM
People who moan about their allocated minute on the first goal sweep gets me raging and no mistake.

Oh alright then Spades. Just for you I'll change that to:

My current wife.

Really bodge? XD

05-12-2014, 09:10 PM
Thank you DiBraidio. I don't object to 'current'. Just like Casper, Mr. spades has always introduced me to people as his 'first' wife. I don't think anyone else would have him now :)

05-12-2014, 09:12 PM
People complaining about "the current wife" like they have them queued up (wheres the party?)

05-12-2014, 09:12 PM
You'd be better asking a Norfolk based poster on that one Casper, a lady who has come into a little bit of money after Danny Ings' penalty last week.


05-12-2014, 09:19 PM

Too many times she has masquaraded as a bloke on here!

Do you wish to share this aria?

Talk Sport, I'm in the car for near enough 4 hours a day, about 2 hours are taken up with PPI adverts and Vanarama.

05-12-2014, 09:35 PM
The way in which people misuse the verb "address".

I think you can address an envelope, or a public meeting, or even, if you're Scottish, a haggis.

It's not a verb that you can apply to an issue, or a question, or a situation.


05-12-2014, 09:58 PM
Computer booting up then waiting for the Internet thingy to do its thing. Like it takes 3 mins just to pi55 me off on purpose!

05-12-2014, 10:05 PM
People (generally working at bank call centres) who, instead of saying 'Yes, I think we can do that for you', say 'Yes, I think we can do that for yourself'. It just sounds so stupid.

05-12-2014, 10:07 PM
My dog barking like a nutter when the front door opens when she knows its me, the husband (Spades >:) ), my sons, our friends, the workman who has been in and out four times already. She continues for about two minutes after she has seen us.

Burnley fans who still stick up for Coyle.

05-12-2014, 10:14 PM
Shopping trolley leaners. Over the past few years, a new fad has developed where some people are unable to push a shopping trolley walking in an erect manner. They tend to lean their elbows on the handle and propel the trolley with their backs at almost a ninety degree angle to their legs. Someone somewhere must have been the first to do this and it has swept across the country. I have never tried it myself for fear of looking like an absolute pratt.

05-12-2014, 10:35 PM
You can order online for delivery or click and collect. Eliminate these trolly issues.

Its clearly a problem (well, since men have had to do the share of supermarket shopping >:) )

05-12-2014, 11:47 PM
I would say that the culprits would be about 65% female to 35% male. Very unfit types.

The incorrect use of the word 'literally' literally kills me when used wrong!

06-12-2014, 06:56 AM
Leaving a match before the final whistle, especially when it's still on a knife edge. I would say a good few missed Ings penalty v Villa and for the Newcastle game people were leaving a good ten minutes before the end.

06-12-2014, 07:08 AM
Reading on here how annoying TalkSport is yet the poster obviously continues to listen to it every day!

06-12-2014, 07:22 AM
When you're in a shop, paying by card, and the robot behind the counter barks out "Enter your PIN" when I'm already on the 2nd or 3rd digit.

What do they think I'm doing; practising Greensleeves or something?

Beer politics. It can't always be the job of the bar staff to know who is next, so if you've just got to the bar and others are waiting to be served, don't be a*****.
It might only be a minute but it's not the point.

The new way of queuing at the Bob Lord bar. The old way was fine, a straight line, not this daft bendy wave form that means folk have to muscle through to go for a ****.

People who call vacuum cleaners 'hoovers'.

So I reckon their are 99% of posters on here who literally wouldn't tell you this but I'm in the 1% who absolutely will do that for yourselves. The answer is to stop listening to talksport on your mobile at turf moor and tweeting about it to your mates who are sat next to you. They're you go, simples.

So, best go and help the wife push that their trolley, I'll show her how to literally use it like a zimmer.

06-12-2014, 12:28 PM
People who say PIN number. What's that then, personal identification number number?

David Pleat and his mad up words that are actually longer than the correct word he's trying to say. For example, tenaciousness instead of tenacity.

The fact that World Wide Web dot has fewer syllables than double yew double yew double yew dot.

The use of haitch instead of aitch.

When you're waiting to come out of a junction and you're waiting for a car to pass before you can pull out. The said driver instead of checking his/her mirror to see that there is no traffic behind them, take an age to slow down and then flash you to let you out. If you'd just checked in your mirror mr/mrs I'm being polite, you could have driven on and we'd all be on our merry way sooner!

Ooh, I feel better for that now!

The use of feudal and nonsensical terms such as "put a decent shift in", "gaffer","good engine" and "faithful servant" in relation to obscenely well-paid and transient employees of a football club.

06-12-2014, 08:32 PM
The traffic in London today. Nightmare! Especially the amount of buses on the roads. I was completely surrounded by them at one stage.

06-12-2014, 09:33 PM
The term "Ya know!".

No I don't and it's actually "you know". Footballers always use this term in interviews after every sentence.

"I had a good game, ya know. It was hard fought but ya know we came out on top". It's just not needed >:(

06-12-2014, 09:44 PM

1) People who drive up Tod Road after the match and use the right hand lane to skip all of the traffic (you know who you are).

2) Pedestrians when I'm in the car. Cars when I'm a pedestrian. Cyclists at all times.

3) The Amigo loans ad on Talksport - so you not only want to F@~# your own credit you want to take your loved ones down with you...

4) People who used to spend all match back in the day blaming Lee Grant for every failing under the Sun.

5) The people who pick the MoM awards at Burnley who clearly haven't watched the match 9 times out of 10. The fact that we still hand out a MoM award when we've been given a drubbing...

That feels better. :D

How about you look at cost of repair etc before buying the f'kin thing...

People who use the self serve tills in a supermarket when they've got a full trolley of stuff...it's meant for baskets only!!

People who don't like their job, spend a lot of their time complaining about it and continue to work there.
If you don't like it, either leave or stfu about it.

This one is usually women.
When people announce on fb that they are in a relationship and madly in love in a short space of time and then expect sympathy when they've broken up a few weeks later, announcing how they hate men.
Why expect sympathy?!?
You're only going to do it all again in a couple of weeks with a different bellend.

Then they do the status " From now on my kid(s) come first"...bet they feel really chuffed moving up the priority ratings now the latest bloke has been kicked into touch.

People who put the toilet roll on the holder the wrong way round. Paper should roll off the back not from the front.

2. In a similar vein when buying a last minute greetings card and sat in car in the dark (with no scissors) you realise that THE card is totally cellophane wrapped with no means of getting into it short of riving at it violently with your hands once again causing untold damage to the card inside. :/

3. People who are negotiating a roundabout as you are waiting to pull out and then flick their "left" signal to exit before they have even passed you hence tempting you to pull out infront of them! You know what I mean. :/
