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.

That's right Fellatio, it's never an uncomfortable and tedious journey that seemed to drag on forever, like the Tube during Friday rush hour, is it?

I'm with you on the milky tea, or coffee.....hate making anyone a cup, as it makes me wretch blush

People who smoke in the street...okay, I know you have to smoke somewhere, but it still pisses me right off blush

Low fat anything....its a con, full of inedible crap, other fattening stuff & water, & fools no-one hmm

People who think because I'm polite enough to say "good morning" means I always want to have a chat, even though some days I might, others I wont grin

people who still speak in baby talk/voice to School age kids...FFS let them grow up, it was annoying at 2 is F'ING annoying by then

when people online say
<and breathe>

especially when surrounded by those stupid arrows.
Also when people on mumsnet make a witty or ironic remark, then say "ahem"

Honestly, makes me want to puke.

And as for
"<passes large gin and slice of cake>" or whatever.
It was MILDLY witty the very first time, before any of us were born. Now it's just annoying

People who say "my bad". I don't know why but it really grates with me.

Why can't they just say something sensible like "sorry, my mistake"?

When my uncle's girlfriend parks in our spot in the driveway even though I know DH won't be home for hours and she will have gone to work by then. blush
