Colleague buys 2 bananas every Monday. Has done so ever since I've worked there (1+ year). They sit on her desk until they go bad and then get thrown away on a Friday. EVERY week. I've never seen her eat one of the damn things yet come Monday another 2 take up residence on her desk.

Otherwise she's a lovely woman and a great pal. But those bananas... just looking at them makes me ragey.

Anyone else have totally petty, pointless things that you should ignore but instead feeds the inner rage demon?

DS (5) does this annoying leany thing against the couch. His feet then push up the rug. And up and up. I can’t articulate why it annoys me so much. It doesn’t actually do any damage but it makes me absolutely lose my shit. Steam coming out of ears the the lot.

In the grand scheme of things it doesn’t matter but I really cannot grasp why, when there is a closed sign in clear view, so many customers still come to my till! I have to fight not to speak sarcastically. The other day I felt like erecting giant flashing neon signs! The same applies when it’s clearly marked as cash only & out come the credit/debit cards!

Right now, everything!

When people shortern words. I think there are some words I don't mind hearing shortened, though none are coming to mind.

Things like: delish, biccie, prep (food prep etc), choc.

People walking really slowly in front of me.

It's haitch that does it for me.

I can be having a perfectly acceptable day... then suddenly, out of the blue I hear someone say "haitch".


<See, even writing the offending word has sent me into a tizzy.)

A colleague who says “okey cokey” every fucking time in the phone instead of “ok” I don’t know why but it gives me rage grin

And people “sourcing” things rather than just buying them.

Socks down the side of the sofa.

Leaving one thing unwashed when washing up and not wiping sides down.

Remote controls left on the arm of the sofa.

Shoes next to the shoe rack

Coats on the kitchen chairs

Toothpaste tube left on the sink rather than put away

When I have folded clothes and my fiancee grabs something from the middle of the pile, without lifting stuff off the top first, making the whole pile fall and become misshapen. How hard is it to lift the other stuff off first then place it neatly back on top.

‘Weary’ when they mean ‘wary’ and ‘ect’ instead of ‘etc’

My DH stuffing his dirty socks under a sofa cushion EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.

People who cough and sniff instead of blowing their noses.

TheGhosts ..... my son does exactly that too!! We got rid of the rug as it drives me mad!

When my husband gets into bed and simply flips the pile of neatly folded laundry off and onto the floor! He will happily do this every day. Won't put them in the wardrobe!

I get in an awful temper with difficult to open packaging.

I know scissors will do the trick but that would be too easy. I insist on bullheadedly attacking it with bare hands and then get all sweary when it doesn't work.

boymum9 Mon 16-Apr-18 22:49:50

Theghosts, my 2 year old does this and it drives me and my DH insane! Haha

When clothes are put in the washing basket with one leg inside out, or one arm inside out.

SheGotBetteDavisEyes Mon 16-Apr-18 22:50:12

The duvet going weird and bunchy inside the cover.
Draining mozzarella - God knows why this irritates me, no idea.

The entitled generation.

NomadicMother Mon 16-Apr-18 22:52:29

Ugh! When my mum refuses to use google maps on my phone when we need directions and instead pulls out her giant book map from the boot and starts looking through the index!!

Mightymucks Mon 16-Apr-18 22:52:32

People who don’t let you off the bus/train/tube first

felicitythemangyfox Mon 16-Apr-18 22:53:44

Supermarket checkout assistant packing my yoghurts - the ones that have a layer of fruit and a layer of yoghurt - and shaking them or putting them on their side or upside down angryangryangry

I try so hard to be polite about it but omg!

People who drive merrily along at 30 mph, (no problem at all) BUT then they slam the bastard brakes on, to let some fucking randomer out into the flow of what was us all merrily doing 30 mph.

It does my head in.

A lot.

Really a fucking lot
