    I don't mind Y/M/D or D/M/Y, but M/D/Y for dates is ridiculous. I just think the numbers should follow an increasing or decreasing trend not all over the place. Every other form of measurement I know of works in such a fashion, so why not dates?
    M/D/Y does follow an increasing trend, though: 12 months, 31 days, unlimited years.

    Why must people leave the button tones on their mobiles left on? Sitting next to someone that is a text conversation would turn a Buddhist monk into a killing machine.

    Yep. There is absolutely no need to keep button tones on. Only perhaps if you're blind and need to make sure your button press has registered.

    The over use of "seriously?" And "Really?" In an american sitcom pause for canned laughter way. Its everywhere. Any american comedy, american kids programmes (which are all based on the friends formula - friends has a lot to answer for) the FC3 hype shit, skylander advert etc.......

    Oh another use of 'seriously?' Really?

    /canned laughter

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    Drivers, why are so many in such a rush all of the time, speeding, red light jumping, tailgating, not indicating, I see them all on a daily basis and it's getting more frequent. If you need to get there sooner set of earlier, if this is not possible then SORT YOUR LIFE OUT.

    If you were walking it would take a hell of a lot longer to get where you are going, SLOW FUCKING DOWN YOU CUNTS.

    You better watch out.
    You better beware.

    Attention seeking statuses on Facebook are truly despicable. Please tell the whole world more about your depression/how ugly you are/how you want a 'real' relationship. Woe is me.

    Hopefully on a race course where it's legal, if you're speeding in rural areas or near schools then you're the cunt.

    Completely agree especially the ultra attention seeking post my feelings with no explanation so everyone will ask.

    Facebook knob: "My life is such a mess :-("
    Friend of knob: "Oh dear what's the matter poppet"
    Facebook knob: "Don't ask I don't want to talk about it"
    Friend of knob: "Piss off then you attention seeking cretin"

    I saw a girl on a bike on a famous suburban A-road I was trying to cross giggling on her mobile phone as traffic streamed past her to her right. Gnnn!

    Totally agree re: bad drivers. When cars get right your up arse my natural response is to slow down to fuck them off. Unless you're going down the motorway or something, the likely time you save by driving like an arse is pitifully small. Worse is when a car overtakes badly, causing you to brake...then pulls in 100 yards down the road.

    Cyclists. 80% of them completely ignore red lights. Nearly crashed into one coming out of a car park a while back, completely his fault. Kinda amused me how I would have dealt with it had I sent him to his death - I'd have got out the car, completely ignored the idiot's brains spread all the over road, and knelt down to examine the damage to my car. The accumulated passersby going ooh and aah would look at me like I was an unfeeling psychopath, haha. Nope, natural selection. Same goes for anyone hit by a train, no justifiable reason* to be on the track unless you're a p-way worker.

    Bonus peeve - trying to get off a train and everyone on the platform is stood in the way as you get off. I often just stop, block the door, and hold my hands out incredulously to shame them into moving.

    Me me me culture.

    *With the exception of level crossings, foot crossing etc. I'm referring to the bellends who hang about in the middle of nowhere chucking bricks at trains.

    O_o

    I find that if you walk into people who are in the way and looking at you they generally move out of the way. Possibly helps that I'm taller and larger than average, so I'll generally win if they don't, I suppose.

    Well yeah, they get out of the way when I walk towards them - I'm hardly big at 5'10'' but I'd win the majority of jostles and can look suitably grim when I want to - but despite being in a mad clamour to get on, they leave a sphincter sized gap for 100 people to walk through, delaying everyone even more. Dunno, maybe I'm alone in thinking it'd be quicker if they, you know, actually exhibited some common sense and shifted out of the fucking way more than the barest minimum.

    Totally agreed, Yegon. I hate the rush. It saves them what... no time at all? Brilliant.

    A lady decided to use the self service checkout thingummy in Marks and Spenser ...

    ... with a big huge trolly load of food.

    WTF?

    Is human interaction that scary for her?

    As an everyday cyclist myself, I loath cyclists who think the red lights doesn't apply to them. I honestly wouldn't help them out if I saw one get hit by a car, bus, lorry, etc. because I would be more concerned about the shock of the driver unexpectedly hitting a cyclist.

    I also think Audi and BMW drivers are wankers. Why don't they ever indicate?!

    Not sure about Audi but I think BMW indicators are just for show similar to the ones on Transit vans.

    I fecking hate taking off my tie and forgetting to take the skinny bit out of the label loop behind the fat bit first. It usually knots up and takes ages to get off. After a knackering day battling the trains it makes me want to burn all ties.

    FCUTA!

    Nose picking, people not letting you out at junctions, people not saying thank you, people insisting on tipping even when the service was poor.

    Advertising/corporate hashtags.

    What's worse is the idea that people actually buy into using them.
