Following on from the modern dining trends that annoy you what general modern stuff annoys you?

Mine are:

People taking selfies in toilets

Being asked for my email address at a till

Wasteful plastic tat in the shops

Not having straws. Sorry but I can more about my teeth than the environment.

Grumpbum123 Sat 10-Nov-18 16:11:36

Yes all of those and people who stand behind you and don’t say excuse me and just huff instead

HundredMilesAnHour Sat 10-Nov-18 16:13:49

People taking selfies full-stop. It's all just so shallow.

EmpressAdultHumanFemale Sat 10-Nov-18 16:14:42

People's loud phones on public transport. Blaring music / sound effects or having a call / Facetime with someone on speaker, all equally annoying.

The Essex blow dry
Eyelashes on cars
The Joules yellow mac
Every ‘celeb’ that has a baby now being an expert/writing a book/on every TV show

saganorenscarandcoat Sat 10-Nov-18 16:16:55

Everyone seems to have a massive sense of entitlement.

The bollocks/bullshit social media, especially instagram and facebook.

Duck lips
Rose gold
Over sharing

Smoresleepplease Sat 10-Nov-18 16:18:40

Massive lips!! You look fucking ridiculous!
‘You ok, hun?’
Why must every top be ‘cropped’? Do one, I’ve had kids!
Standing so close to me in a queue that I can taste you!

mimibunz Sat 10-Nov-18 16:19:03

I refuse to give my email at the till!

Magmatic80 Sat 10-Nov-18 16:19:05

Particularly selfies in toilets where they don’t put the lid down first.

NonaGrey Sat 10-Nov-18 16:19:34

People checking in to hospitals on Facebook.

Vloggers using their kids

Excessive packaging

HD eyebrows

dementedma Sat 10-Nov-18 16:28:30

you can get paper straws you know...or not drink fizzy drinks if you care about your teeth.

NancyDonahue Sat 10-Nov-18 16:29:24

Those selfies with the big freaky eyes

Stephisaur Sat 10-Nov-18 16:29:32

Excessive makeup.

The tangoed look was amusing, but now some girls wear SO MUCH MAKEUP. It usually looks fabulous, but my god what a waste of time.

I only do a full face of makeup (which is somehow “natural look” according to some blogs) if I’m going somewhere nice. False eyelashes are only for VERY special occasions!

Bellabonkers Sat 10-Nov-18 16:30:19

Alexa and the like. People can't even turn their lights on without help....

EmpressAdultHumanFemale Sat 10-Nov-18 16:31:13

People take selfies in toilets? confused

I work in Central London & there's one particular red phone box, with the Houses of Parliament in the background, that nearly always has a queue of tourists waiting to have a photo with it.

NOTthepinkranger Sat 10-Nov-18 16:31:48

Going to have to google the Essex blow dry never ever heard of it!!

I’m just sick of fake celebs and their ‘clothing lines’

NOTthepinkranger Sat 10-Nov-18 16:32:39

Whys it called an Essex blow dry?! It’s just a curly/bouncy blow.

makeitalargegin Sat 10-Nov-18 16:33:35

When someone posts a photo on Instagram and has a million hashtags

It gives me the rage
