for me it is people who dont say thank you when you step of the pavement into the road so that they can get past.
people who step on the back of your shoe and dont apologise.
and people who dont use caps correctly wink

and im sure i will be back with more!

When you're driving and let someone out, and they don't thank you.

OR, when driving, if someone lets you out and you go to thank them but they're not even looking at you, just gazing ahead, stony-faced. If you didn't want me to drive on, don't fecking flash me, you arse. Grrrrrr

When you are standing looking at something and your ds is in the pushchair, and then some stupid bitch comes along with her puchchair and pushes it right in front of your ds so that now he can not see anything.

On schoolrun: when you're late, and hurriedly shuttling your child towards the school gates, and all the smug mothers who got there on time are wafting back through the gates with maddening slowness, chatting to each other about cupcakes, letting their 2-year-old ride sideways on its tricycle, dragging a toy dog, etc, and don't step aside to let you come in, despite your hopping around on the other side of the fence, red-faced and panting

When people don't wind the cord back up correctly on the vacum cleaner.

When people squeeze the toothpaste tube from the middle and not the end.

Completely irrational I know!!!!

coat hangers

I'm with DustyTV on the toothpaste; same for putting the caps back on bottles/cans etc.

people who have conversations in the middle of supermarket aisles with their trollies pretty much blocking the entire aisle who then TUT at you when you move their trolly to get past; likewise people who block shop doors having conversations

drivers who stop on the main, free-flowing traffic road to let people in from a side road

LOL @ Beautiful - yes there are many things DH does that irrationally piss me off

lazarou Sat 28-Jun-08 16:17:37

When dh decides to buy something 'because it is cheap'
'oh look, thos plants are only 50p' 'yes, that's because they are dead'

When dh decides to make something and it costs more than if we had just bought it ready made, and it looks crap
