    When you hold the door open for someone to walk through and they dont say thankyou

    Or, when your walking down the street and you move to the side but carry on walking and the other person just continues in the middle of the path like theyre gods gift and its like arghh, and actually if your walking and someone just cuts right across you, that really p*sses me off!

    Also if your queuing in a bank, and some other people in the bank start complaining about the queue and using 'all of us' as if youve got the same complaints and its just really embarassing!

    Im sure there are lots more, but those have bugged me the most over the past week!

    I don't understand people who actually find that annoying, so assume most people with such sentiments just want something to say. Does it burn years of your life to read an extra FB status?

    our whole youth, and the 'we have to get completely wasted to have fun' culture.
    the fact that everyone looks the EXACT same, literally clones, like droids from star wars :') but with topshop and fake tan.

    It annoys me that:

    - Due to the prevalence of the Internet and suchlike, it has become the norm for people to use smileys and emoticons in normal writing, or for lol and other basic abbreviations to be used in conversation. We've lost the ability to express ourselves with the broad and beautiful vocabulary that we've developed over so many centuries.

    - The general population has become either become so deeply depoliticised that "politics" is considered separate from life because poeple don't relaise that their elected representatives are there to do just that, represent them, or have been radicalised into extremist viewpoints which engender hate in the community and cause further disillusionment in those remaining because they see an extremist minority gaining popularity.

    - Any sort of viewpoint considered to be in anyway "traditional" or non-secular or non-mainstream is viewed with automatic distrust at best and at worst outright derision, regardless of what the viewpoint may be. These opinions are trivialised with haste and disregarded out of hand without knowledge, wisdom or in depth examination.

    - The media outside of the BBC have given up making any sort of meaningful television resorting instead to a collection of knitted-brow crime dramas or base and demeaning televisual trolling which is disrespectful to both the viewer and the people on the screen. That even the BBC has fallen victim to this culture and has begun trying to produce similar tripe but comes up with the impossible- a copy which cheapens even the original which itself seemed to be the lowest point television could reach.

    I think that's probably about it.

    For now at least...

    Well, it isn't really a problem to do with modern society

    Unless you want to talk about anthropogenic environmental effects which might be altering precipitation cycles?

    Yes I deliberately worded that the way I did to make myself sound clever.

    1. Too much reliance on the internet - what about books/ talking to people face to face etc
    2. Throw away society - make do and mend? (admittedly China and NICs are to blame)
    3. Health and safety concious
    4. Lack of respect for elders
    5. Fashion repetition
