    Charity collectors on the street.

    I'm clearly busy walking quickly to where I need to be, I've purposely avoided eye contact with you, avoided crossing your path by taking a detour and yet you still stop me?

    **** OFF.
    I usually wear earphones and do get ignored.

    I agree - once had someone who couldn't take the word "no" for an answer. He was like "it's only £7 a month". I was receiving around £142 a month at the time; so yeah, that is a lot of money to me.

    I've tried the earphones trick, it never works though. They still jump in front of my face with their irritatingly false enthusiasm and never do take "no" for an answer. It's not like there's only one of them to avoid on my way through town. There are millions swarming around waiting to pounce on their next victim.

    When people sit on the inside seat of a bus, taking up two seats!!

    It may have been mentioned before, but when people sit on the seat nearer to the aisle on a bus and then refuse to move over to let someone else sit down when the bus is clearly filling up :rolleyes:

    Oh and people who spend ages waiting at a bus stop but aren't smart enough to think "oh i'll get my purse/money out ready" so instead stand in front of the driver for about 4 minutes when it does turn up fumbling in their bag - either get your money out or let others get on while you faff around ffs

    Why? If there's two seats available then whoever wants to take up two seats can, besides the inside seat has more space if someone wants to sit next to you, more leg room into the aisle !

    Had one come to the door of a student house. When we said we couldn't afford it, they suggested going out one less night a week and shopping at Lidl. Already do and they still wouldn't go away...

    I tend to go for the, "I need to catch a bus/train..." excuse and just walk off.

    What happened to the apostrophe?
    I heard rumours a while ago that there were plans to remove it from the English language entirely as so few people can use it correctly!

    Guy on the train the other day who was talking on the phone about how he managed to avoid the ticket barriers. Also, guy on the train who stepped in front of me (and my suitcase) as I was about to get off the train, facing outwards so I thought he wanted to get off too. So I had to ask him to move, and then shout to the people who were trying to get on to let me off first. Thanks for making me look like a total idiot...
