    I was going to have a picture of Family Guy, but unfortunately I couldn't find one small enough :ashamed2: But lets begin the morning off by getting our frustrations out in the open, before they consume us :banghead:


    I shall start us off. What really grinds my gears... well I have two that currently annoy me quite a lot. The first is elderly people - don't get me wrong, I love old people, but when they push in front of you in a queue and just generally think because they're older than you that they can do whatever they want

    The second has to be people that cross the road without looking and then act all surprised when a bus is about to run them over... :bhangra:
    It just frustrates me because it is something so simple, something you are taught when you're small but yet you see grown adults still doing it. It is only a matter of time before something dangerous happens!!

    So many things about politics. Especially political snobbery and insulting stereotypes.

    e.g. "If you voted leave then clearly you're just a poorly educated racist who doesn't understand economics".
    Or "if you want stricter environmental laws and care about conservation you must be some naive hippie and/or luddite who doesn't understand how the world works."
    Or "if you express any mildly left wing views you must be a raving socialist and/or communist who wants to destroy capitalism."
    Or how you're a so called "nimby" if you want stricter planning laws or want to scrap HS2."

    It annoys me so much because it reduces complex issues to pathetic propagana soundbites no matter how reasonable the demands are or how important the issue is. The environment one annoys me the most.

    A shorter list would be what doesn't annoy me :laugh:

    I'll go with the latest though which is some people on FB. Last night all I saw on my page was " going to have a clear out. Like this status if you want to stay on my page". Clearly fishing for likes and wanting attention to see if anyone actually likes them. Also annoy me when people moan that no one ever talks to them, mails or texts them but when you do contact them, they read the message and never reply and then make another status about how no one ever contacts them!

    Dunno why I'm still on FB when people like that annoy me so much :laugh:

    People who still think Corbyn is electable, even more annoying is people who think Eagle/Smith are acceptable alternatives. The latter group annoys me more because they're not completely stupid that they actually might have been able to come up with something better.

    Yes I have had plenty of people like that on my feed - they get swiftly removed Facebook is full of rubbish in reality, but it is something to look at when you're bored

    When someone decides to use a spoon to spread mayonnaise/jam/butter instead of a knife when a knife is clearly the most efficient utensil at that moment. Especially when they leave the spoon there to waste away inside the mayo jar, and since the handles of all spoons and knives in my home mostly look the same, I can't tell if it's a spoon or a knife and when I set my expectations high, thinking it's a knife and it isn't, it hurts so bad. - Honestly, i hate that **** but I've learned to live with the fact that some people just like spoons better than knives when spreading.

    When some muslims on this forum defend
    -beating/execution of homosexuals
    -FGM
    -husbands beating their wives
    -Palestinian terror attacks in Israel
    -telling other muslims they'll be punished for not obeying their parents or whatever

    Also when people just scream "Trump is raycistttt" and say he has no chance of winning!

    It grinds my gears when people talk too much and you can't get a word in edgeways. I can't stand one way conversations, and conversations where the other person is clearly content with talking non-stop and not allowing you to have a voice.

    Same! And then they end up telling you that you're too shy and you should speak up more!!!
