    What things really annoy you beyond reason. Mine has to be cling film, surely someone should have invented something better than this by now or at least something to make it less infuriating to use.

    Yes I have to agree, cling film is so disobedient most times. I'd have to say leather sofas. I hate having to slowly indroduce inches of my skin to the material.

    I quite like cling film, I just wish it came with a better device to cut it with, without having to search the house for scissors or using your hands and then its not neat.

    Yep I totally agree I always seem to grate half my knuckle when doing it. Although recently we have picked up a cheese grater from Ikea which is really quite good.

    Agree with this also especially in summer, never understood the appeal of leather sofas.

    That's the worst, especially when you're at a self-scanner and there's a long queue. I feel like everyone's judging and hating me for taking so bloody long to open the bag :mad::mad:

    Headphones all of them.

    I want music in my ear. But I don't want:
    wires that tangle, and take an age to untangle
    wires around my neck
    headphones that fall out
    a wire going from my ear to my jean's pocket, that restricts movement
    when you're sitting down, and got music on in the library, you get up to get a book, and you forget you're wearing headphones because you're in the zone, and your iPhone/ Mac goes flying
    bulky headphones
    wireless headphones where the battery dies
    wireless headphones where they unsync from the device of their own accord
    wireless headphones when they wont pair with a device
    wireless headphones and people saying 'oh, wow, are they wireless?'

    :sad:

    Bed sheets. I have a normal bedsheet and one between me and my quilt. When I wake up the fitted sheet had come of and gone across the bed and the sheet in between has become twisted and messy. Fixing this involves moving the bed and mattress away from the wall...

    We have something - the clung fling is in a thin plastic box type thing and there's a cutter, which means you can cut the cling film straight.

    Apologises for my rather poor explanation.

    Something like this

    the film ontop of microwaveable items, and sometimes sliced meats like bacon, sometimes you pull the corner and it just rips off, leaving the item sealed without a way of opening it (without a blade of some sort)

    vacum sealed hard plastic packaging as well (the like around some electrical items, usualy computer related items like pen drives) usualy requires a knife to remove it.

    spring loaded doors and seats (porta-loos have them (to stop guys walking in and pissing on the seat I assume)) I could tell you all a story relating to those things but its disgusting.
