I am currently in a coffee shop with my napping 5 month old and everything is so fucking loud. Coffee machine, plates banging, people having the nerve to talk

Other things in this vein I get unreasonably pissed off by: DH sneezing loudly and motorbikes going past.

What things are you unreasonable about?

peppercold Wed 31-Aug-16 10:28:30

People walking slowly in front of me.
People queue jumping.
People parking on my street to save parking fees.

Ginger cats that are not my ginger cat. They are all ugly hideous beasts except my lovely gorgeous pretty ginger cat, the most beautiful cat in the world.

I don't feel the same way about my tortie and other torties.

Rozdeek Wed 31-Aug-16 10:30:24

Those things are reasonable, I think.

I get pissed off by tourists which is very unreasonable as I live in London.

People eating popcorn in the cinema. I didn't used to be this much of a snowflake, dunno what's happened to me.

Trifleorbust Wed 31-Aug-16 10:32:31

People walking slowly in front of me. People overtaking me. People being out in their gardens making noise. Passive aggressive road signs.

Other people on public transport sitting in my seat grin

Bad manners

When I do something out of courtesy like let a driver past, hold a door open etc I expect a thank you.

A thank you. Not flowers, trumpets and big song and dance. Just a thank you. Irritates the hell out of me when people don't say please or thank you.

I also hate music playing and people talking at the same time.

I've got less and less tolerant as I've got older and I'm only 27 so fuck knows what I'll be like in my sixties or whatever.

In the same vein as the OP, NDN hoovering out his car, every bloody day, it's not loud but it's annoying, surely no-one needs to hoover their car that much?

QueenofLouisiana Wed 31-Aug-16 10:35:52

People who want to take photos of old buildings.
People who want to pull over when driving to look at fields.
Mice in the garden.
Low mobile signals.

I live in Suffolk, I moved here because I like fields and old buildings!

Rozdeek Wed 31-Aug-16 10:36:32

That's the mark of someone with too much time on his hands pineapple

I also get annoyed with people sitting in my table at the cafe.

Rozdeek Wed 31-Aug-16 10:38:05

Why the fucking fuck do men have to sneeze so fucking loudly???

Nabootique Wed 31-Aug-16 10:38:57

I don't think being annoyed by queue jumping is unreasonable at all, pepper! It's so rude, and really winds me up too.

I hate people talking on public transport, which is obviously very unreasonable, and talking loudly next to/behind me at work when I am on the phone (less unreasonable, I think).

Also, people taking too long in front of me, whether it's walking, loitering for aaaaages whilst deciding which cheese to get in the supermarket, at a till, whatever.

Tinklewinkle Wed 31-Aug-16 10:39:07

People driving at 24mph in a nice, straight, clear 40mph road

Tourists - I live in a holiday area, it's the end of the summer holidays, I'm beginning to get a bit raggedy

MadHattersWineParty Wed 31-Aug-16 10:39:18

We are away staying in a (well, it was) very peaceful tranquil boutique hotel in a hot country.

Last night an American lady arrived.

Her shriek of 'HOLY BANANAS' when she saw the lovely pool area is still ringing in my ears. A phone conversation was conducted at shouting volume just above the terrace and totally shattered the ambience for people having a few quiet drinks.

She's not stopped shrieking since. The buffet breakfast? 'HOLY CRAP WHAT A SPREAD'

it's the sheer volume of it! I've never heard anything like it.

goddessoftheharvest Wed 31-Aug-16 10:42:28

People walking slowly in front of me. I feel ashamed of this one,because of the sheer amount of pointless rage I have.

Old people and those with small children- not a problem, they have a clear and defined reason to be walking slowly

People who take up the whole pavement as they stroll along for a chat - movemovemovemove

mummabearjustgotfierce Wed 31-Aug-16 10:42:51

I get the rage about so many things!
People who eat loudly
People who eat popcorn in the cinema, it literally makes me want to heave
People who bite their cutlery whilst they eat
People who slurp their tea
People who rustle tissues

I never realised it usually revolves around eating and food until iv just written down!

Tinklewinkle Wed 31-Aug-16 10:44:18

People at the beach who spread out and mark their territories with wind breaks, then get drunk and play loud music all afternoon

MadHattersWineParty Wed 31-Aug-16 10:44:29

People eating in the cinema is the reason I didn't renew my Cinewordd card, I just can't bear it any longer.

Why can't they go two hours without shovelling food into their mouths??!!

EssentialHummus Wed 31-Aug-16 10:44:36

bitty that usually prompts me to offer a loud, cheery "YOU'RE WELCOME!" after them. grin

Rozdeek Wed 31-Aug-16 10:46:59

I used to work in South Kensington where all the museums are. Every school holiday I got the rage.

Once, while queuing to get into the fucking station, I overheard a naice MC mummy say to her friend "the problem is all these bloody commuters"

Um no love. We're here every day. The problem is you and your DC on scooters.

Rozdeek Wed 31-Aug-16 10:47:43

I get unreasonably annoyed by a shitload of stuff dp does too.

CakeAndChocolate Wed 31-Aug-16 10:50:30

pineapple we must have the same neighbour. Mine is out the front hoovering/cleaning/polishing/admiring/fuck knows what with his car EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. WHY?

LurkingHusband Wed 31-Aug-16 10:51:32

Every day for the past 4 years (well, every day we've been here) a young (well, no so young now) lad drives his **ing exhuast-trumpeting Vauxhall past our house, turns around, and parks up a few doors down.

He doesn't live there - so it's a booty call shock ?

Around 11:00, 8pm and 10pm.

He's already been round today once.
