Every morning DH asks me to check over his face for random missed shaving bits and blemishes. Then when I tell him he's fine, he says 'Are you sure?'. angry Just look in the fucking mirror you dick.

I speak to my mum everyday on the phone. She always asks me what we're having for tea. I tell her then she tells me whether she likes that particular meal or not (usually not). I'm not inviting her round so why do I care if she likes my tea or not? angry

I'm an unreasonable person.

Seriously, I fucking hate it and it makes me irrationally angry. Gentle breeze is fine though.

Steely Dan - no idea why but their music makes gives me the rage. If it comes on the radio, it gets switched straight off.

Wind makes me irrationally bad tempered too. It's always blowing in your fucking face! I hate that feeling angry

And the Gala bingo advert. I'm not a bingo player but if I was I'd never set foot in one of their clubs purely on the back of that advert!

People who start their sentence with 'So'. I've noticed this creep in a lot more recently. Why. It makes you sound like a dick. angry

Oh God, where to start.

DH cuddling up to me in bed and making me too hot. Or, in winter, DH failing to cuddle up in bed and therefore making me cold hmm

Kirsty Young's voice.

People in the work kitchen throwing milk away exactly on its use-by date. It's their milk so none of my business. But still angry

The fact that there is a load of washing up from last night. It is there because I was too lazy tired to do it. But it still makes me cross.

Melania Trump's ridiculous gurning face whilst plagiarising Michelle Obama.

I'm sure there are more........

Sniffing!!! Just get a hankie and blow your nose...grrrr....

Every single guest on Radio 4 on whatever programme has it written into their agreement that they MUST start the answer to any question with "So...."

Come the revolution I'm going to have all of these people shot at dawn!

New Year's Eve parties. I am in my 50s and there has been no age or stage of my life when I have enjoyed them.

BrotherBeer Tue 19-Jul-16 09:13:32

ABloodyDifficultWoman YES! I listen to Woman's Hour everyday evening and have noticed every single guest they have on does this. Bastards.

londonrach Tue 19-Jul-16 09:13:33

Fast dancer..with you there!!!! Perfer a quiet one with family instead of making small talk waiting for a certain time. Normal parties are fine as you not waiting for 12pm.

My stomach. WTF happened? One moment I was 38 and hating on my thighs for being pale and chunky, next moment I'm 42 and my thighs are the least of my worries, compared with the ever-expanding doughy horror that is my midriff.

Also, why WHY do Virgin trains book families into the Quiet Carriage? I totally get families are seated where they're seated but the reason I've booked into the Quiet Carriage is to do some work, not listen to a performance parent teaching three under tens how to play BRIDGE.

And 'Dancing in the Moonlight' by Toploader. Who knew xylophones could make you feel so vicious.

Music by Royal Blood.

No idea why, it just taps into some rage seam in me and makes me hurl abuse at the radio while diving for the off switch.

Finding glasses & mugs after I've washed up, dh leaves them all over the house. Oh & that play that sax song that was all I heard over Christmas - I've never hated a song so much in my life!

People who own cars that have an insignia that covers the keyhole for the boot, and who leave the cover flicked up so it does not actually cover the keyhole.

Brushing my hair and straightening it 😂 don't know why it makes me angry because its my choice to do them haha.

When politicians start every fucking sentence with "let's be clear about this". Like communicating clearly is some massive favour.

Bread. It leaves fucking crumbs fucking everywhere. It's not worth it.

Sonders Tue 19-Jul-16 09:54:28

I hate it when people crumple up wrappers and napkins/tissues. Either leave them flat or fold them!

For some reason in my head they are dirtier when crumpled.

TheCatsBiscuits Tue 19-Jul-16 09:57:07

People who say 'to be fair', all the time. You do not need 'to be fair'. YOU ARE NOT JUDGE JUDY.

PinkissimoAndPearls Tue 19-Jul-16 09:57:40

When people end perfectly sensible posts on Mumsnet with the word "no" and a question mark.

Makes them look like twats, no?

God it gives me the sick

cheapandcheerful Tue 19-Jul-16 10:00:15

The incorrect and ridiculous overuse of the word 'on'.

- I'm waiting on my friend. NO! You're waiting for your friend.
- I'm hating on my job. NO! You hate your job.
- I'm going away on the weekend. NO! You're going away at the weekend.
- I'm not sure on the options. NO! I'm not sure of the options.
- Can I get back to you on it? NO! Can I get back to you about it?

My DH regularly does it. It gives me the rage.

cheapand this is closely related to the 'I'm excited for Christmas/my new labia piercing/Brexit' rage - no! You are excited ABOUT it. It's not up to you whether Christmas or your labia or the EU requires you to be excited on their behalf.
