    State your pet peeve that happens almost everyday.

    For me it's when you're walking down the street and the person in front of you just stops to check their phone. Like MOVE

    My friend calls that a method of natural selection

    Similarly, people who walk in (threes or more) and don't make space for others on the pavement :rolleyes:

    People who smoke at bus stops as well.

    When people tell me to do something I clearly was about to do. I could be standing over a spilled cup of water with a paper towel in my hand, an inch above the puddle and my mum would STILL tell me "I hope you're going to clean that up". Well, that just makes it seem that I'm doing it because you told me to

    Just everyone in general lol.

    Also, people who stop right infront of you when walking. People who eat too loudly, or slurp their drinks really loudly - no need.

    When people block a door way or take up most of an aisle in a shop while they talk to someone and look at you like you've offended the gods when you politely say "excuse me"

    - people who stand in the way and feel the need to hold their social gatherings there
    - people who talk to me when I didn't initiate the conversation (with the exception of 5/6 people)
    - when I'm clearly trying to avoid interaction with anyone (I'll have earphones in and a book open in front of me) but someone still insists on making me talk


    there are more; i'll edit as i remember

    omg tell me about it, especially when you are in a hurry.

    i was coming off the tube one time during rush hour on my way to work and of course - out of all the times for them to be there - there was a bloody old lady with a trolly walking up the stairs in front of me. and on THE BLOODY STAIRS she decided to stop mid way to put something in her ****ing trolly!!! ohh man i almost bit her ****ing head off, then i tried squeezing past her and then she was all like 'ohh sorry' if I was a violent person I would have punched her in the ****ing head. honestly it should be a ****ing law or something, pensioners are not allowed on public transport during rush hour. and if they decide to still take it they should at least have the ****ing decency to get off the train last!!!

    Keeping with the walking theme, ANYONE who walks slowly. I will literally tailgate them until there's a gap. Especially annoying when they walk in wide groups and block the whole path, or when they block the apex of any corners, forcing me to deviate from my racing-video-game-honed path.

    People who smoke in crowded bus-stops. Of all places you choose to light up, you do it THERE? If you're going to do that, at least have the decency to understand that not everyone wants lung cancer.

    This one guy who takes the same bus as me who hogs the group of 4 seats facing each other. He'll sit on the one closest to the aisle and put his feet on the one opposite, blocking off the two window seats. He isn't saving them for anyone else - those seats are just wasted.

    People who talk about personal stuff too loudly. No, we do not want to hear about your relationship woes/sex-life/make-up-schedule.

    People (usually girls) who queue up in the college canteen just for a bar of chocolate. Vending machines exist. Use them and make the queue shorter for others.

    People who know I'm into cars who point out a flashy-looking car and ask "What car is that?". It gets boring real quick, especially when half the time the answer is "Porsche Boxster".

    When someone asks the teacher a legitimate question relating to the topic of the lesson and the teacher can't answer it. Makes me think the teachers only know the A-level syllabus and nothing else.

    When teachers pretend to be cool, use words that teenagers use or pretend to understand teenager things. 99% of the time it comes out as cringe.

    Loud chewing and people who eat greasy food on the bus. I don't mind if you take it with you, but I don't want someone to spill a nasty kebab all over my schoolbag. That, and people who think that Shakespeare wrote in Old English.
