    @meme ...I love you! you show me my failings and inadequacies without using them to your advantage...I am used to my ellipses and random use of 'to' and 'too' and 'it's' ...although 'it's' should only exist because it is an abbeviation!!

    When, in response to someone disagreeing with something, a person goes "you don't get it", or "you just don't get it", or "looks like someone just doesn't get it", as if just saying that is enough to win an argument.

    I've seen this quite a lot on EG recently, and it's beginning to shit me.

    Ticking clocks.

    Drives me fucking mental, especially if there's one of the twats in the room I'm trying to sleep in.

    should "of" instead of should've.

    also a petty one but i've seen it here a couple of times; when people acronymise something without context. for example, if there's a new thread about comedy panel shows and someone writes "hignfy is really good", most people would know it stands for 'have I got news for you' but to the uninitiated it requires doing an internet search just because someone was too lazy to type out the full name.

    Women's bags and shopping!

    Yes the train/tube is crowded, yes I have a seat next to a pole and yes you are squished up in close proximity to me. But dangling your massive handbag over my lap is not ok, not only does it occasionally tea-bag me like a giant leather ballsack but now I can't read my paper.

    Also woman with a bag full of shoes, a giant handbag and loads of shopping, the guard is telling you to step back because all your shit is up against the edge of the platform, so rather than getting ripped off the platform and dragged down the tunnel, how about you step the fuck back behind the yellow line, don't pull a face and don't get mushed.

    Of course when correcting punctuation it has more impact if you use correct punctuation yourself. ;)

    If you use a proper browser like Firefox then to search the web for an acronym is as simple as double-clicking the word to highlight it, then right clicking and selecting "Search Google for ".

    Spaghetti: too annoyingly difficult to eat.

    I have a low threshold of tolerance towards almost anything if I'm trying to get anywhere.

    People who are on the same pavement as me and invariably will get in my way. Embarrassingly I've caught myself muttering loudly when this happens, but it is ridiculous how often people just take up a pavement without thinking if anyone needs to get by and might have to go into the road to do so.

    Cars that have the fucking temerity to be travelling across a road I want to cross.

    Cars that just seem to slow down to the exact speed where it's not possible to cross without being run over, but ensure the car behind has been given enough time to catch up so I'm now standing there for ages.

    People who use the ticket machines at the train station who don't know what they're doing. I arrive usually with ten minutes to get a ticket, but on weekends that can be blown to shot just by one old biddy trying to use the search function on a touch screen to find Worthing. I've missed god knows how many trains due to this in the last few weeks. I've even given myself more time and still been done over. And even if you order online you have to collect tickets from the damned machines.

    it's not really punctuation though, it's using an entirely different word just because of a phonetic sound. not using capital letters doesn't detract from the meaning of my words.

    and the acronym thing is more about courtesy, it is easy enough to look it up but there are some acronyms that may have multiple... things it stands for (sorry, just woken up and couldn't be more eloquent there!) I really don't mind if it's been referenced before or if it's obvious what the acronym is,

    People, usually women, who get to the end of the checkout process and discover that they are going to have to pay for everything they just bought.

    This new revelation in how you live has them then opening their bag and rumagging around for whatever holds the form of payment they were completely not expecting to have to use while they stood there gormlessly looking at the cashier for the last few minutes.

    The person I sit next to at work must answer "cosmic" when she is asked on the phone if she is ok.

    She apparently does this because it has a dual meaning of good and bad.

    How do I know this reason?

    Because she has fucking explained it to me many many times RAGE!

    Small one first - when people use the microwave in a communal kitchen, and take their food out early there is like 24 seconds left on the clock but they don't reset the clock. Just reset the fucking clock. That microwave is poised, ready to delivery its last 24 seconds of magical heat. Reset the fucking clock! Also it makes me double take that the time might in fact be 00:24.

    Air travel. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST IS THIS YOUR FIRST TIME ON A PLANE???/ fFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKK.

    YES the belt you are wearing is metal. SHOCK. And yes, that massive handful of change will set off the metal detector WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU THINK IT WAS MADE OF. Coming in to land everyone, seats up, tray tables up, ipods off. But EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME some CUNTS needs reminding. Sir can you switch that off please. Sir can you put your seat up please. for the love of god how hard can it possibly be. Flight crew must have the patience of saints. Seriously if I had tell 50 idiots the same thing every day that they KNOW already and have been TOLD multiple times... Actually it should work like natural selection. Seats to the upright position please!. Oh, sir is your seat not in the upright position? Fucking ejector seat then, boom. Jettison the twats into the channel.

    This, and eating with chopsticks. Why should eating your dinner be like taking a test?
  • Deleted user 2 December 2012 20:52:24
    Chopsticks are easy. You just use them basically as a shovel with the plate close to the face, rather than treating them as replacement forks.

    In some parts of continental Europe where the populous don't have the personal space issues Brits have they all pretty much barge, brush and knock into each other all the time without anger or repercussion. During a particular visit to Oktoberfest "friends" i went with decided to join in the spirit and barged our German friends all over Munich. They turned it into a sport with points for artistic impression and each time they barged, the Germans happily ignored them and carried on walking. I found it very embarrassing and being a coward tried to lie low during the stupidity.

    I don't like spaghetti either. It has no place with bolognese sauce. Tagliatelle would be more appropriate, and it's nicer. Spaghetti is too rubbery.
