    How difficult a concept can "wallpaper" possibly be to get your head round?

    My most specific pet hates are people that let their dogs off leads in parks and people who treat cats like people.

    Oh good God does this piss me off.

    It's even worse for me in a betting office, since the customer is the one who determines how much they are paying! They actually write the amount on the betting slip, and still some of them wait to be told how much!

    One particular guy in my shop is a nightmare; he spends 40p a time and always takes upwards of 30 seconds after I ask for the money to actually get it out of his pockets. Meanwhile, he's getting in the way of people trying to get anything from 5-500 on.

    Stamp duty. What does it actually pay for, and why do I have to pay it twice?

    Whoops!

    If it helps, I use that term not derogitarily (if that's a word, it's spelt wrong) - I use it to confirm how I imagine builders like their tea, which is the same as I do - sweet, piping hot and strong enough to melt the spoon.

    Ah, that's not so bad. I had always thought it was meant to imply it was a drink for people with unsophisticated tastes, and was somehow inferior to blends like earl grey or darjeeling.

    Well, not by me. Heaven is a cup of Yorkshire tea, with semi-skimmed milk and soft water.

    oh and fucking polesmoking cockmitten cyclists that you overtake (as your natural pace is a little faster than theirs) then at traffic lights they pull up to a stop in right front of you, so you then have to risk overtaking them again, and it happens at the next set of lights.

    That's one of mine - cyclists on the fucking pavement, huffing and puffing at pedestrians in their way. GET IN THE FUCKING ROAD WHERE YOU LEGALLY BELONG THEN YOU CUNT.

    Also, I absolutely cannot abide computers in movies that make diddlydee noises as text appears on them, or that get viruses that make the letters fall to the bottom of the screen and then dissolve into a laughing clown going HAHAHA YOU'VE GOT A VIRUS, or suggestions that negotiating the internet is an exciting rollercoaster rideof plasma effects and fractals etc etc etc.

    People that use the word 'literally' as hyperbole.

    I literally want to rip their heads off, and shit down their throats.

    I literally can't believe you posted that.

    Just because it may / may not be accepted use nowadays, I still think it's stupid.

    If it's good enough for James Joyce and Scott Fitzgerald, it's good enough for me. ;)

    What about one of the examples he uses, "really"? Have you never used it to exaggerate something, "I've really been through hell today", or whatever? It's the same.

    I do what all people around here do, when I need to use hyperbole, I substitute the word 'fucking' for 'very'.

    It's fucking useful.

    Not only dubious, grammatically (shouldn't it be "fuckingly"?), I also assume there's not literally any sexual intercourse taking place, between who- or whatever?
