People who cut trees down. I don't mean dangerous, decrepit, leaning over trees. I mean perfectly good ones that look nice and aren't causing anyone any offence.

Poor trees sad

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 07-Jun-15 15:25:01

People who talk with their mouth full.
Middle lane hoggers.

I can probably get quite a long list together.

People who use their hands to eat when cutlery is conveniently placed right next to their plates, for example using fingers to get rice on to a fork.

Those sticker emoji things on facebook . Horrible!!!

Royalsighness Sun 07-Jun-15 16:02:42

People who stand inches away from my face to talk to me really annoy me, unless we are having a pow wow or kissing back the fuck up

Lolimax Sun 07-Jun-15 16:11:40

People who have no spatial awareness in the queue in supermarkets. I'm claustrophobic and hate it when me and my trolley are boxed in.

Lolimax Sun 07-Jun-15 16:13:00

Oh And those who chase their food around the plate with a fork. Knives are a very useful invention.

Wideopenspace Sun 07-Jun-15 16:13:57

Noisy eating
Scraping cutlery on plates

Yeah, the personal space thing

I'm also a grammar nazi blush

People taking up the pavement
People who think their handbag or shopping needs its own seat on the train or bus
People who talk loudly. Shut up, you're not in a school play
Autocorrect changing legible sentences to ridiculous ones
Shirtless men
People who say 'okay' constantly.
'I went to the shops today,'
'Okay,' hmm

fiveacres Sun 07-Jun-15 16:17:50

Oh and:

Alot (it's two words, isn't hard.)
Your when people mean 'you're = you are.'
I should of - no, you should HAVE grin

emmelinelucas Sun 07-Jun-15 16:26:43

Key rings of soft toys - bunnies and teddies etc attached to handbags.
Grow up ffs.
Buffets - yuk, it is all breathed over
Dogs as a fashion accessory

Perfectly able bodied people (with no children/suitcases etc.) standing still on escalators, as if their legs don't work. Stop being so lazy!

PattiODoors Sun 07-Jun-15 17:46:56

Ah now jewels I have an invisible impairment and walking on an escalator would be very destabilising balance-wise. So yup, guilty. Soz*

*moo haha at my inserting annoying txtspk

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 07-Jun-15 17:51:38

Aren't you meant to stand still on escalators?

It annoys me when people stand still blocking the escalators so people who might want to get up faster, but standing still itself seems fairly normal.

usualsuspect333 Sun 07-Jun-15 17:55:09

The whole point of escalators is so you don't have to walk up the stairs. So yes I stand still, unless I'm in a hurry.

Mine is people sitting on the outside seat of a 2-seater on a bus when they're going a lot further than the next stop. Or, if really fenestra-phobic, just don't wait to be asked in a crowded bus, move to one side so folks can sit down. And don't tut when I have to move you again when I'm getting off the bus - it was your choice to hog the outside seat.

fattymcfatfat Sun 07-Jun-15 18:01:03

ignorant women who think that just because they are in their 40s they can barge past the pregnant woman on crutches on the bus to get the last available two seats and put her shopping on the spare one refusing to allow me access angry

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sun 07-Jun-15 18:02:49

Today, the crowd of 5 people (all adults) who tried to pile onto the train before my DD and I got off.

I am the most placid person ever but it boils my piss and when it's my DD (yes okay, she's taller than me but still my child) that is pushed out the way, my inner tigress will roar.
"Let us off the bloody train first eh?" , we were at the doors to step off so hardly delaying them hmm

alsmutko Sun 07-Jun-15 18:05:26

McFat I agree. Seats are for bums not bags. And no excuse for barging past anyone to get the last seat.

Anyone who think "gotten" is a real word and uses it in writing or out loud!
