Names with umlauts in them, unless you live in Germany or nordic lands. I don't mind accents in names, or that funny dot above the i in Irish names, but names with umlauts in get on my tits. Especially Zoë. Everyone can pronounce it when it is spelled Zoe. It is just attention seeking.

Which you ARE unreasonably unreasonable about.

When a poster misses a word out of the title wink

I hate made up spelling of names. Knatalee etc.

Je suis une dumbass.

People who get married and have their 18 month old son as the "best man".

Eating noises. Burping that sounds like a 'pllllllllllllf' with air coming out the sides of the mouth. People who talk to young babies in a teacherly manner: "now, Johnny, mummy has told you about this before. What do we do with rubbish? Throw it in the bin. Remember that young man". That sing-songy tone of voice that Early Years professionals have when talking to children (and which I have adopted accidentally over the years). People negotiating with toddlers and giving them choices about stupid things (like what underwear they put on) - (and before anyone says anything, I don't mean children with language delay or behavioural issues or SEN, just toddlers). Unconditional parenting.

Or any child in a suit.

Actually it is perfectly reasonable to don your judgy pants about that one.

OOH OOH mothers who go clubbing with their teenage daughters. Loads of people say to me (my dd is 14) 'soon you will be going out clubbing together' hmm

Um, no. She can go out clubbing with her mates.

This may have something to do with when the last time I went to a club (Christmas 2009) I moaned about there not being enough seats to sit down, and 'why is the music so loud, can't hear myself think'.

Sloany, that is so nauseating. Friends of ours had their seven year old as the best man and three year old as bridesmaid. It was very mini me. Both children had copies of their parents wedding clothes.

My dog licking her bum ANYWHERE except her bed. I get it needs to be done, but if she won't use the bathroom with the door shut she should go in her bed behind the cupboard.

Manys the time I've walked in on her and she's let out a long suffering sigh and plodded to her bed to resume her cleaning grin

Frocks from Monsoon or Phase 8 worn by women who are younger than 50.

You may as well buy your dresses from Country Casuals and announce to the world you have given up.

Newborns in jeans.

People who 'smack their lips' when eating.

See through leggings. Makes me feel sick seeing someones fat, cellulite riddled arse through their clothes. Disgusting.


People who do fuck all with their kids and palm them off to family members whenever possible.

EccentricaGallumbits Mon 13-Sep-10 11:11:52

people touching me uninvited.

Honeydragon Mon 13-Sep-10 11:12:31

ooooh and parents who send their children to school with really dirty ears - uuuuuurgh. If I can see it from 4 metres away - they need cleaning!

"People who do fuck all with their kids and palm them off to family members whenever possible"

I'll join you on that one - I'd get flamed on any other thread but this one - but I really agree with you.

GetOrfMoiLand Mon 13-Sep-10 11:16:24


Now honeydragon, it is unreasonable tio send your kids to school with dirty ears, so is perfectly fine for you to go urgh about it.

This thread is for normal, everyday things which are fine, but which piss you off for some unfathomable reason.

People who order their steak well done. They are normally the people who go 'urgh' at my blue steak. I don't go 'urgh' at their plate of shoe leather.

Making milky tea. It is disgusting. Why have your tea milky?
