I really hate it when the toilet paper runs out and the last person to have used it is too lazy to replace it with a new one. :(

I love this idea and I have plenty of them. I have to go to a public policy class and once I leave there I'll have more.

I hate it when there are no more rolls left in the bathroom! And you have to scream for help! Or you have to umm... drip dry. Ew.

Too much info, no?

Aside from:
When someone totally capable of winning Davis Cup matches, fails to win them. 4-17 now Jurgen! ;)

*When electrical outlets are switched on, when there's no plug. (Is this uncommon!?)
*TOILET SEAT -put it dooown!-

1. That avatars take forever to load
2. Old people in big american cars who drive in the passing lane @25mph and break every 2 feet.
3. When people eat out of my plate
4. When a group of people walk (slowly, most of the time, engrossed in conversation) side by side and take up the entire sidewalk

Bjorkman Girl, it could be worse...a friend of mine had to go in a portapotty w/o tp, she left without her underwear :o

# When you are stuck in a shopping centre and are going up an escalator and the person in front of you gets to the stop and just stops dead and looks around and you bump into them.
# Also walking down the street and you are about to pass someone and this person walks quicker and in the direction you are going to pass.
# The phrase "Now, let me tell you something".

UGH. I know. These people are every bit as obnoxious as people who make ap oint of having conversations in stairwells and doorway. Seriously people, it's called common sense.

# Another one which irritates me and shows how much of a guy I am. The whole hipsters thing irritates me in a big way. It's funny as sometimes the job I do sometimes requires me to move around the venue quite a bit. I see women holding up their pants when they are walking up the stairs, wouldn't it be easier to wear something that doesn't require it.

# Women pulling down their mini-skirts is another peeve and leaves me shaking my head.

-Women in those big 4 wheel drives, (even my mum says they shouldnt be on the road, they cannot handle the big cars).
- 60+ Drivers, get them off the damn road. They cannot drive
- People who walk around in lines (instead of single file) blocking off the pavement, come on people you can be separated by 1 foot from your friends once in your life.

#another very annoying one...when I'm in a cinema, watching a movie and that the guy beside me has his cell that rings right in the middle of the movie. And that he keeps on repeating for at least 1 minute "I can't talk to you now, I'm in a theater". :mad: This is also very annoying in other situations. Last time it happened was last Sturday, when I was in Strasbourg, watching the DC doubles.

People that leave their indicators on for too long.

Argh! Bring on the 2-ply Toilet paper!!! (Though I draw the line there. 3 ply is just a waste of paper IMO!)

As for newspaper, I once dated a guy whose parents were happy to use that :eek: OMFG... I mean, they weren't well off... but still. If you're going to splurge, splurge on toilet paper. I hope he uses sandpaper now though. The asshole (no pun intended) cheated on me... repeatedly, incl. on my birthday with a 'friend' of mine. :devil: All's well that ends well though... I used him a little and made him buy me clothes afterwards! :lol::yeah:

4. When a group of people walk (slowly, most of the time, engrossed in conversation) side by side and take up the entire sidewalk.

WOW. And I thought I was the only one who absolutely hates it when that happens. What I usually do is sneak up really close behind them and then say 'excuse me', interrupting their conversation. It reminds them that there are people behind them and that they are blocking the ENTIRE sidewalk :mad:

I also don't like people who don't indicate... but I have been known to be guilty of it myself so...

Also... tourists.. :mad: My University College is used to film Harry Potter (the Dining Hall where they all eat is my Grand Dining Hall!!), and loads of tourists come round.

I don't mind, but I DO start to mind when they get loud (hate to say it but the Americans are the worst offenders from experience) and begin to forget that it is a place of learning and not just a tourist attraction built for their amusement....

I lost my temper BIG TIME at one the other day.... thought I was going to get in trouble, but my tutor saw and came to my aid.. he knows just how close I am to mental breakdown at the moment....

rant over... feel better now... :angel:

Oh i hate it when that happens to me too, but more when they do "piropos". Which is when strange men kinda whisper lewd things to you when you're walking past them or something and all you can do is pretend u didn't hear them cos if you say anything they just laugh. Who the hell do these guys think they are? :mad:

I hate it when people saunter along the road chatting and taking up the whole pavement when I'm in my lunch-break and in a hurry :devil:

I hate young drivers (usually male I'm afraid!), who have just passed their test and show off, thinking they're so much better than people that have been driving for 10 years or more :devil:

I hate it when people swear for no reason - "F*** off" in the middle of a heated face-to-face argument is one thing - but using the f*** word in normal conversation really annoys me :devil: :devil: :devil:

Aha, what are the kind of things they usually say/ask?

They start off by asking me what´s up and so on and then they move on to cheesy bullshit like:
You are beautiful, let´s have a drink together.
Are you single?
I think I like you, do you like me too?

As reponse to such things I usually tell them I´m busy or smile and say nothing. Don´t know what else to do. I believe in karma that´s why I don´t want to be rude. It might come back to me sooner and later. I don´t treat other people like crap because I also don´t want to be treated like that. :angel:

I see women holding up their pants when they are walking up the stairs, wouldn't it be easier to wear something that doesn't require it.

This I agree with, to a certain point. Although it's worth noting that I have pants that I have to hike up sometimes... they aren't exposing ass crack, so it's not for that reason. It's just a nervous habit :p

# Women pulling down their mini-skirts is another peeve and leaves me shaking my head.

This actually makes sense. If you have hips, skirts sometimes ride up - mini or not. In which case you pull them down. If you haven't experienced this then you wouldn't understand.

I can only agree with many of the things mentioned on here already, and add a few of my own:

People who stand in the middle of the pavement chatting, completely oblivious to any passers-by. I was labouring up the hill towards campus a couple of weeks ago (oh, that's a good location for a university) and these three vacuous female students were just talking to each other, taking up the entire pavement. They didn't even notice I was there. I had to scrape round across the rather muddy verge. Yes, I should have said something, but I really don't feel confident enough in these sorts of situations to do that.
Settling down in a good seat in the cinema, the row in front of you is empty, and then at the last moment some family with howling kids will occupy it and ruin the experience. Naturally, the man with the large head that blocks off most of the screen will sit right in front of you (mind you, I'm quite tall myself so I am probably causing similar agony to those behind me).
Bland, pointless phrases peppered into conversations. People who call up radio phone-ins and always say to the clearly irritated presenter, "How are you doing, you all right?" before getting to the point. People who keep saying "At the minute"! It's not a phrase, you dolts! It's either "At the moment" or "At this minute", not a mixture of both.
The entire British railway system. I suppose that's too general to be considered a pet peeve, but its overall incompetence is the net sum of a vast number of little, annoying everyday things.
Virtually everyone who travels on said railway system. I've been told that I'm being antisocial, but for some reason I will always find myself in the same carriage as a) a screaming baby, b) an overenthusiastic dog, c) a group of schoolkids who make you lose what little faith you had remaining in humanity or d) a couple of loudmouth yobs whose only purpose in life is to threaten you.

Especially when said people can't get their credit cards to work, dig through their pockets looking for $.99 in change...worse still when ,they decide they don't need two loaves of bread after all (so take that off the bill), this can of peas is dented so can i exchange it (how in the hell they don't notice this when they pick it up is beyond me :mad: ), Oh no! they forgot the milk :rolleyes:, arguing with snotnosed Bobby who's screaming because he just has to have those four boxes of fruit loops......and all this while they have like $1000 worth of groceries in their cart :mad:

Ok here's another pet peeve of mine --a grammar mistake. (Sue me!) But I really, really, really hate it when native speakers say "I did good", its "I DID WELL!!" :mad: Only objects are "good", when youre describing an action through verbs, youre supposed to use "well". I played well. I sang well. I did well. No one "does" anything "good"! :( It really drives me up the wall.

Americans are particularly guilty of this -there was a whole restaurant chain in Washington DC whose motto in big fat letters was "Eat Good".
Shameless.

03-12-2005, 01:58 AM
I'm the sort of person who will always pick people up on bad grammar, it never makes me popular but with the rise of text messaging I don't want to see the English language bastardised any more than it already has been. I can't believe some people are seriously suggesting that kids should be taught to spell phonetically however they like! But then a good 25% of the generation before them is illiterate, thanks to the great changes to the education system made in the past 30/40 years.

Oooh it works then?? It's called sarcasm... and it is SUPPOSED to irritate you :p

I find myself doing this constantly at work when rude customers don't say a single word to you during the entire time you are serving you!

Me: Hello, how are you?
Customer: *silence*
Me: That's good
Customer: *raised eyebrow*
Finish transaction
Me: You're welcome
Me: Have a nice day!
Customer: *silence*

Either that or the grumpier the customer is the brighter and chirpier I act towards them... that tends to irritate them too :p

Ohhh...my kind of thread!

#1 - People who spit on the sidewalk. Seriously, it's absolutely disgusting and there is no need for it. I can understand that sometimes a person just has to spit and it can't be avoided, but at least have the courtesy to spit in a garbage can, or move off of the sidewalk so other people don't have to walk through it! Yuck.

#2 - Smokers. Particularly people who will stand right next to you and light a cigarette, then get offended when you move away. Second worst are the people who just throw their cigarettes on the ground when they're done with them, sometimes not even putting them out first. I always want to pick it back up and give it back to them, saying, "I'm sure you didn't mean to throw this disgusting piece of trash on the ground, so I thought I'd give it back to you so you can throw it away properly. Dumbass."

#3 - People who talk on their cell phone when they should be paying attention to something else. This includes having a purchase rung up at a store, driving a car, and going to the bathroom.

#4 - Parent who don't attend their children in public. Ugh...I can't even elaborate, this annoys me so much.

I have A LOT more, but those are the big ones. (The first three are also killers for any man who might want to ask me out. If I see any one of those things, then we're done.)

or... why can't they just spit it into the grass or bush or something! anywhere where i don't have to walk!!

also, people chewing with their mouths open. SO disgusting. i don't want to hear it! (this is where i need a smiley shooting himself in the head)

Another pet peeve of mine is when customers phone me at work and I can hardly hear them because their TV is blaring away so loudly in the background - and then they dare to ask me to "speak up- I can't hear you!" If they want my help (which in my job usually means they want government money :devil: ) - they can have the good manners to turn it off before they phone up -or at least put it on "mute" for 5 minutes..

Oh - and I hate people who write in text-speak too - it's difficult to read and for anyone over 30 almost impossible to understand!!!!

I've got quite a few--

--For students: Please turn off your cell phones or complete your calls when approaching the registration desk to ask questions or complete a transaction. I hate it when students come up to the desk with questions and they're talking on the phone. The very least you can do is complete the call first before approaching the desk.

--Parents who have annoying and "unprofessional" voice mail messages. "Heeey, sexy..." I don't think so. A simple "I'm sorry I'm not able to come to the phone right now" would suffice.

--Students who call the office and hang up. OK....nice talking to you.

--Students who call and instantly get an attitude because they are not getting the answer they desire.

That's just work-related. I have more, but I won't bore you.

I can only agree with many of the things mentioned on here already, and add a few of my own:

People who stand in the middle of the pavement chatting, completely oblivious to any passers-by. I was labouring up the hill towards campus a couple of weeks ago (oh, that's a good location for a university) and these three vacuous female students were just talking to each other, taking up the entire pavement. They didn't even notice I was there. I had to scrape round across the rather muddy verge. Yes, I should have said something, but I really don't feel confident enough in these sorts of situations to do that.
Settling down in a good seat in the cinema, the row in front of you is empty, and then at the last moment some family with howling kids will occupy it and ruin the experience. Naturally, the man with the large head that blocks off most of the screen will sit right in front of you (mind you, I'm quite tall myself so I am probably causing similar agony to those behind me).
Bland, pointless phrases peppered into conversations. People who call up radio phone-ins and always say to the clearly irritated presenter, "How are you doing, you all right?" before getting to the point. People who keep saying "At the minute"! It's not a phrase, you dolts! It's either "At the moment" or "At this minute", not a mixture of both.
The entire British railway system. I suppose that's too general to be considered a pet peeve, but its overall incompetence is the net sum of a vast number of little, annoying everyday things.
Virtually everyone who travels on said railway system. I've been told that I'm being antisocial, but for some reason I will always find myself in the same carriage as a) a screaming baby, b) an overenthusiastic dog, c) a group of schoolkids who make you lose what little faith you had remaining in humanity or d) a couple of loudmouth yobs whose only purpose in life is to threaten you.

Especially when said people can't get their credit cards to work, dig through their pockets looking for $.99 in change...worse still when ,they decide they don't need two loaves of bread after all (so take that off the bill), this can of peas is dented so can i exchange it (how in the hell they don't notice this when they pick it up is beyond me :mad: ), Oh no! they forgot the milk :rolleyes:, arguing with snotnosed Bobby who's screaming because he just has to have those four boxes of fruit loops......and all this while they have like $1000 worth of groceries in their cart :mad:

It bothers me when I'm at work -- I work at a Chinese Restaurant -- and I am very busy...then the next thing you know, the phone rings,and I have to answer it. Instead of having the order ready, the customer starts yelling things like "Bill, did you want chicken fried rice or Shrimp Chow Mein?" Then they take absolutely forever trying to decide on the order. All this time, customers are piling up on me and it makes me very frustrated.

I am with you on that. I don't see how people can drink something that smells so bad. I also hate to be in crowds of drunk people....My school shuts down the road for big events on campus and I never stay for long because of the drunks who can get out of hand. I will probably never go to a club for the same reason.

Also, I hate when people "dog-ear" pages in books.

Dog-earring, highlighting etc. I mean, if people REALLY need to underline stuff, go and buy a pencil. And hey...use the eraser too.

I like to drink occasionally, and I'll go to bars, and city pubs to scout the eye candy there, but not clubs (unless I'm very drunk, and it's a gay bar. THEN I will dance, because noone's watching anyway! :tape: ). I don't get it. I've seen enough drunk people dancing at work, I don't need to BE one of them. :)

EW totally agree with the people who need to barge onto the train before you get off. I mean, sometimes there's a big gap between the train and the platform. Big enough to fall down for some people :( Catching trains in peak hour is horrible. *Note to self: Avoid getting on trains from Granville, at 5pm :o [sometimes you don't fit on the train])

:lol: @ the books. I have so many bookmarks its not funny. I don't even finish reading the books. When my mother lived with us I would yell at her for the way she treated my books (I am a book-fan) she'd bend the spine back, and even rip the bigger ones in half, because they were too big and 'hard to read' like that.

its also annoying when the idiots who go out drinking/clubbing till like 3-4am. for example when they have work/college the next morning (they turn up looking a mess, start complaining they are tired, and some even fall asleep). Quite simply do not go out if you know what you have to do the next day!

Also i really hate smelly people, body odour, bad breath, smelly clothes, smelly hair you name it! i really hate it. I always like to be clean, and smell nice! i simply couldnt date anyone who didnt clean or take care of their body to the extent they smelt :eek: That reminds me of my friend from uni lol, she has really bad breath and its been like it for months, its really annoying when you sit next to her and suddenly think what the fuck is that smell! and then i realise what it is :D

It's the time of year to be annoyed with all the people running around with no heads at Xmas time.

- Christmas carols, they were shit then and they are shit now.
- Valentines Day
- People talking on mobile phones while driving cars, go get a set and put in the car and talk hands free. Better for you and better for other road users.
- Parasite housemates who don't contribute to bills.
- Ignorant tourists who just blurt out requests and questions in English in a non-English speaking country, without the decency to ask whether locals speak the language.
- Follow up to the above, is when tourist says it in English the first time and is not understood, then the next time they shout the same thing louder. A tip more than likely unless they are deaf and they didn't hear the 1st or 2nd time, shouting isn't going to help.
- A lack of quality of deodarant products for the male crown jewels.

Christmas is just an excuse for shops to make money for one month to pay the rent and cover the rest of the 11 months.

Valentines Day is the same as Xmas except that it's florists making more one day than they do for the year. If you love your partner it should be every day and appreciated daily and not celebrated on a specific day in the calendar.

What a co-incidence that you should say that now. in Thailand it seems they all do it. And worse, after the meal, while still at the table, they suck their teeth loudly.
I have noticed that Thais concentrate on their food while eating and are not much given to conversation, so they rarely have to actually watch their fellow diners chew. Their eyes are too busy scanning the table for something tempting that they then reach across your plate to spoon up.
What they think of the noises I don't know, but are probably accustomed to them from birth and don't notice.
Anyway, that is not much if it is all I have to complain about in Thailand. Peeves are supposed to be trivial, aren't they?

- Ignorant tourists who just blurt out requests and questions in English in a non-English speaking country, without the decency to ask whether locals speak the language.
- Follow up to the above, is when tourist says it in English the first time and is not understood, then the next time they shout the same thing louder. A tip more than likely unless they are deaf and they didn't hear the 1st or 2nd time, shouting isn't going to help.


Ditto (sorry, can't really relate to the male crown jewels :p )

Also:

* ignorant roommates who leave the lights on, don't do dishes, don't take out the thrash, shower at 5 in the morning (happened to me tonight :rolleyes: ), forget to close windows when they go home (I'm surprised nothing has been stolen yet) etc etc.
* Dinner etiquette: chewing with your mouth open (while talking), filling up your plate when there is still enough of that same food on it (my brother does this all the time like he's scared he's not gonna get enough :rolleyes: ) and the worst: smoking in a restaurant. Should be banned and as of 2007 will be in belgium. Finally.
* As tangerine dream said: people who don't control their kids. My aunt let her kids run around in church when we were celebrating the 50 year jubilee of my grandparents. The kids even went behind the altar and were talking etc. The only thing they said was 'shh' but the little buggers don't listen to that anyway. And I'm talking about kids who are old enough to listen (age 4-6). I wouldn't even have dared to do that. If we were told to sit still and shut up we did. (or else our parents would show us something after church)
* people who enjoy embarrassing other people in public because they think it makes them funny.
* people using my towels. I'm not overly hygienic or something but the idea that my brothers/dad use my towel is just ewwww :shrug:

Oh yes! It seems like nowadays some parents don't want to make any effort to make sure that their kids behave.

I'll add some-

* Really skinny people who ask if an outfit makes them look fat. Sometimes it just seems that they want you to tell them that they are thin. And I have noticed that they often ask this question of people who weigh more than they do. I just don't like it.

* The sound of plastic chip bags. The sound when someone is just scrounging around for chips drives me bonkers. That and the sound of candy wrappers.

* When you are at the gym and two friends or people who are flirting with each other have decided to camp out at a couple of the weight machines forever and no one else can use them.

* When men wear shorts when it is less than 50 degrees out. I have to wonder if they were born in Antartica and so have special skin or just didn't pay attention to the weather report.

* When people take soooooo long to make a right hand turn. It should not take 2 minutes.

*When people litter.

* When I am at a concert and there are people around me who are using the concert as social hour and talk/gossip with each other the whole set. I just think it's rude. In particular because people paid good money to go see the concert and enjoy the music- not to hear details of soandsos date that went bad.

A lot of things annoy me when I drive, here are just a few:
When I’m on the main road driving quite fast and there’s no one behind me, and suddenly someone drives from a side road onto the main road just in front of me and then goes reeeaaaally slow, forcing me to brake and then overtake them, or turns into the next side road immediately. Why can’t they wait ten seconds longer?!? :fiery:
At a crossroads, when drivers in front of me don’t know the right of way and I have to either wait an eternity or honk at them. Learn the damn rules! :smash:
In a traffic jam, when drivers in front of me leave enough space between cars to fit a short train. I always yell: “That’s one of the reasons there is a jam, dummy!” :mad:

What a great idea. Our trains in England only have one carriage designated as a "quiet area" with no mobile phones allowed, and that is not enough in my opinion.

I also totally agree with some of the former posters' comments about noisy, unruly children - they might be their parents "little darlings" who can do no wrong - but they sure as hell aren't mine - and I don't want to hear them screaming and running around in a restaurant and generally annoying others. I particularly hate parents who let their kids chase or paw at animals - you know pullings dogs' trails or ears or whatever. Animals are not toys for their kids to play with - they feel fear and pain too - and if the kid hurts them they'll naturally turn round and bite or scratch - and then all hell will let loose.

Unfit parents who refuse to control their kids in restaurants.

I had the same opinion until I'm a parent myself.

My son is diagnosed with AD/HD and Asperger's Syndrome (a very mild kind of autism) . On the surface, he looks like every normal kids but he just can't sit still for 5 seconds, no matter it's at home or at a public place. He dosn't have the ability to observe and learn what's acceptable or unacceptable social behaviours. Everytime we go out to eat, I am exhausted.

You can say, don't go out then and I believe this is shared by lots of people here. Well, imagine that you're not allowed to be served a decent meal in a nice restaurant for one year (I'm not asking much, right?). Or, when your other family members are having dinner in a restaurant but you are not allowed to go because you have a kid having problems sitting still.

Yes, over the years, I had many people giving me dirty looks and I don't know how many talks about how unfit we are as parents. I had an old lady told me in my face that I should smack my son's bottom for his behaviour in church.

"Hey, it's a narrow stairwell in a crowded library that's constantly used by people all day long - it's the only way to get to the upper floors. So here's an idea, why don't I stand here at the top of this flight of steps right in everyone's way and have a casual chat with my friend? I know that you're there and you want me to move, but I think you can manage to squeeze awkwardly round me and not disrupt this very important conversation about my drinking routine tonight. Anyone would think you were in a hurry or something!"

Mobile phone ringtones. The mobile phone, that insidious blight on modern culture, has about 2 useful functions and at least 10 completely pointless or indeed harmful ones (e.g., the delightful way in which thugs use them to make modern-day snuff movies, better known to some on here as "happy slapping"). How we all love the feeling of sitting slumped on the train in the morning in a state of drowsiness, bleary-eyed and fatigued, and then having our ears assaulted with a soulful melody of electronic pap that goes on and on until the owner either answers the phone or else switches it off, after having fumbled with it for about 20 seconds so everyone on the train can hear the whole wonderful dirge from beginning to end.

I also love the way in which the mobile phone completely removes people's sense of individuality after repeated use. I was once on a train going to university that got stuck on the line in the middle of nowhere, with irate students sitting all around me. Within the space of a minute, I heard three voices declare, one after the other, "Yeah, I'm stuck on the train", as if one person speaks and then everyone else thinks they have to do exactly the same. They might as well sellotape the thing to their ear, that way they can always call someone during a lull in proceedings and avert the horrifying prospect of sitting still and staying quiet for a change. I don't own one, never have done, and it hasn't made a blind bit of difference to me - I imagine I will need one in the future, though, when (if) I have more responsibilities.

Very true. And I would like to add on to your pet peeve. I hate when someone is out socially with a group of people and yet they still feel feels the need to yak on the phone with someone else. (I'm not talking about a 1 minute conversation to coordinate futre plans, etc. - I'm talking about a full on extended conversation. ) What- are they not entertained? Does the company that they are with bore them? Why did they come out with Group A if they just wanted to talk to person B? They could have just stayed home and talked on the phone.

I have occasionally been guilty of trying to barge onto a train sometimes, but I'm more sinned against than sinning, I have to say. They come right up to the door as they stand on the platform, then try and march on as though you're not there.

About the button-pushing thing, a similar situation occurs on the trains when people get off. They're the new-fangled variety with automatic doors, which only open when the buttons at either side start flashing and bleeping once the train has come to a total stop. But, never ones to be deterred by the evidence of their own eyes and ears, people still insist on clicking these buttons dementedly before they start bleeping, sometimes even when the train's still pulling into the station and it would obviously be dangerous if the doors opened. I wait as they continue punching pointlessly, then when the doors can actually be opened I press the button on my side and hope that they took some notice. Of course, they never do.

Do read on...

"f*ck."
"c*nt"
the above mentioned words being used constantly by 'fully sik chiks' at the local college. Same girls wearing clothes that are too small, which leave massive love handles/rolls of fat hanging over the edge. Being curvy is fine. Squishing it into that anorexic girls pair of shorts, is not fine. Clothes which are so small they reveal 2 inches of arse crack when said girl sits down. And, the fact that these girls probably own enough belts to avoid this visual pollution, but choose not to wear them. Instead, they wear stupid stilettos to their local college. f*cking c*nts.

(Also, people like me who whinge about these other people, and come off sounding high and mighty. I have two eyebrows, and wear clothes which fit. Go me. I listen to my beloved iPod to drown out the disgusting language of the above mentioned wastes of time and/or space)

People who insist on boarding the train before I leave it. Particularly, stations on the City Circle. Needless to say, I enjoy wearing a scowl and pushing through the ignorant tossers.


That is quite common here! Really pisses me off too!

I also hate these stupid people who walk in groups and take up the whole pavement, when I go shopping it is full of these idiots! Not everyone likes to walk at a snails pace, and by making it impossible for you to get through, you are stuck :mad:

Just after posting my pet peeve, I found this article online:

31 July 2006
JAMES BLUNT YOU'RE IRRITATING
Pop star James is 'more annoying than wardens'
By Victoria Bone
SINGER James Blunt has pipped traffic wardens and noisy neighbours in poll of pet hates.

The star - who rocketed to No 1 last year with You're Beautiful - came fourth in the list of 100 things that get up people's noses.

He was banned by radio station Essex FM last month following "listener pressure".


Ex-Army officer James, 32, defended his music at an awards ceremony in May, telling critics to simply switch off if they don't like his songs.


But the survey of 2,059 tetchy adults rates him as more irritating than stepping in dog poo. He also topped "celebrity" ex-Big Brother couple Chantelle and Preston, Craig David...and illusionist David Blane.


People's No1 hate is cold callers, followed by caravans and queue jumpers.


Ex-smokers are in ninth place with Carol Vorderman twelfth and Americans at No 46.


Men in flip-flops, people who read over your shoulder and dieters who moan that they are fat when they are really skinny also made the list.


The study reveals that women are easier to wind up than men, with more than 80 per cent admitting that little things can send them into a rage.


But Victor Meldrew-style blokes are also alive and kicking - as 33 per cent of men say the older they get the more crotchety they become.


The survey was commissioned by health drink firm Lactofree. Spokeswoman Louise Barton said: "It's the little things beyond our control which seem to annoy us the most - like novelty ring tones and noisy eaters."

Had the wonderful experience again of doing the pedestrian tango and it's still irritating.

Walk down the street, you are about to pass someone and they either speed up or go in the direction you are going to pass on and then after this happens once you change direction and then they go the same direction.

Also, food claiming to be vegetarian, but when you bite into them, clearly they are not. (Thanks to the Adelaide 'Next Generation' Tournament, for their Vego spring rolls :D!!)

I'm a waitress. It irks me when you are walking around a cramped room, serving the main course, and people are either sitting with their chairs far from the table (wish i had a go-go-gadget arm!) making it difficult to put the plate in front of them..... or they put their crap (phone,wallet, drink, camera) where the plate is supposed to go, and instead of helping me out when I ask them they just watch me struggle as I try to move their sh!t whilst holding onto 3 (usually quite hot) plates. I am polite and apologetic for disturbing them with my request, but they just stare, dumbfounded. Idiots.

A little thing that annoys me sometimes very much is if I'm at university, sitting at a table in a library reading or searching for something in books and then people walk past or nearby me who are wearing flip-flops or other annoying noise-making shoes that produce a kind of loud and bothersome nerve-racking smacking sound like "fwap, fwap, fwap" or similiar on every step :mad: On some days this upsets and unnerves me a lot :banghead: If I were in charge, I would not only ban the usual things like switched-on mobile phones or food and beverages, but I would also only allow such people to enter the library barefoot :(
