    Trashy pop radio tunes.

    Lazy people. Whether they are teenagers who havent grown up or taken any responsibility for themselves or who are just immature.

    If you have something to do, do it now because then youve done it. simple

    But some teenagers seem to think if they just sit there and mum does everything that this life will last forever.. no

    Many people need a foot up their rear end, seriously

    People who get offended on the behalf of others.
    People who go out of their way to find everything offensive. My understanding of language can be, well, not the way it was intended; (that was an awkward conversation ) but I have never gone out my way actually find everything offensive.

    Having dogs who seems to take up so much room. Why oh why do I have to constantly fight to my squeeze my little arse into a small space, because you and your furry mates need to spread out?

    People who spill stuff on my floor back home. I literally don't mind anything else (My friends could throw up in my kitchen sink for all I care) but ANYTHING touching the floor just sends me into a rage.

    People who spell the word "definitely" as "defiantly"

    People who use the word literally when talking about something which is not literal.

    People who use the word literally in the right context but unnecessarily, i.e. when the thing described wouldn't be anything other than literal to begin with.

    People who don't know the difference between imply and infer

    People who write in their regional dialect, e.g. using "me" instead of "my". Fine when speaking, not fine when writing.

    People who tack "no offence" onto the end of sentences who's clear and sole purpose is to offend.

    People who stand around in the workplace doing nothing and getting in the way of those who are busy

    Bus drivers who arrive early and take off from a stop before the time it's due to be there

    Atheists who proclaim "Oh my God!", "For God's sakes" etc as figures of speech

    People who still find swearing offensive in the year 2015

    Customers in retail stores who ask of a person wearing the store uniform "Do you work here?". Duh.

    People who think quick fad diets that involve pyramid marketing schemes and not eating, actually work.

    Feminists who claim they want equality but actually preach superiority

    Anybody who believes in something without credible evidence to support their claims

    That old guy at the gym who walks around the changing room naked with his wrinkly old nut sack swinging around his knees

    Black Friday and Cyber Monday

    Fanboyism for particular brands like Apple, Sony etc who refuse to acknowledge the competitors achievements

    Celine Dion

    Give £x a month charity commercials, people who shake their cans in my face at the store exit, collection envelopes pushed through my door ... basically charities who harangue generally. If I wanna give you money, I'll find you.

    People who claim they can't tell the difference between HD and SD television and then claim they have decent eyesight

    People who feel the need to point out to pro wrestling fans that "its fake" as if we don't realise it, and then talk about soap operas, movies or scripted dramas they're watching which are also not real.



    Come to think of it, a lot of things irritate me!

    Teachers who act like we students are stupid and says everything slowly like they are talking to a bunch of 5 year olds

    Teachers who act like they are putting in so much effort into teaching us, but actually does nothing, while complaining about not having time to mark our work

    People who say omg I'm so ugly/fat etc. and is basically asking for people to say no you aren't.

    People who complain about my tenses or grammar, but have terrible grammar themselves

    When people tell me not to say something or do something, and yet they do it themselves.

    When people are super inconsiderate, yet when they want me to be quiet, we have to do it

    People who act like they own the world/the world revolve around them
