Yessss this : Claudia winklemans Fcking fringe. People that come out of doors first & people who stand too close to you when in a que & kids leaving rubbish next to the bin 😂 and plates next*
to the dishwasher. And talon nails and fake eyelashes…


Stressybetty · 19/03/2023 07:57

The whole speaking "my truth" thing and saying 100% all the time.


Lovelycupofcoffee · 19/03/2023 08:03

The word fundamentally. One of the people at work use this word in every conversation and it brings out a rage in me . Not sure why

The words soft play and safeguarding, both of which I hate but only ever see used on mums net where almost everything seems to be a safe guarding issue.

soft play always sounds like something a prostitute does.

Any public loo with no hook on the back of the door for your coat and handbag. Airports are the worst when you can’t leave your stuff anywhere. Drives me mad and cosy pennies to fix. I can’t get my jeans and knickers down, wee and wipe while holding up a coat and clutching a bag. I’m not putting my clean coat and nice bag down on the disgusting floor.


WillowtreeHouse · 19/03/2023 08:39

People who say they 'have anxiety' when they are just feeling nervous about something that anyone would feel nervous about (like a driving test etc,). Totally undermines those who really do suffer from it. I don't myself but I have a friend who can barely leave the house sometimes.

Folk who say draws instead of drawers.

Just people really. 😂

The words soft play and safeguarding, ...

Soft plays have been around for donkey's years, they're just places with padded floors and equipment, where small kids can run and climb, with little risk of injury.


SushiSuave · 19/03/2023 08:56

People who lean over their trolleys, basically pushing it with their elbows and usually walking REALLY slowly in front of you

But then someone might steal your purse, surely you don’t just leave it there for any passing baddie to pocket on their way out?
Like you wouldn’t walk along a street on your phone waiting for some mugger to grab it off you?

You don’t put it in an obvious place! I am 55 now and no one has ever half inched my purse doing the weekly shop!


BigButtons · 19/03/2023 09:10

I am getting increasingly irritated by quotes- usually some philosophical crap about life- on face book, telling you how you should consider things.


shouldhavetakenmorenotice · 19/03/2023 09:24

People that say 'pacific' instead of 'specific'

I just cannot correct them, but it's half my team at work. They're all the same age too. I suspect some sort of school book related conspiracy somewhere.


comingoutofmycageandillbedoingjustfine · 19/03/2023 10:06

Middle lane hoggers.


BeautyGoesToBenidorm · 19/03/2023 10:33

DP randomly disappearing in the supermarket when we're out shopping. I turn my back for a second and suddenly the fucker's at the other end of Tesco.

Most TV adverts. Nationwide adverts can especially get fucked, along with the over-50s funeral plan ones.

DS1 eating chocolate. He chews it making this awful sloppy, wet mud noise that makes me want to rip my ears off.

Men (it's always men!) jiggling their leg. It makes me SEETHE.


Whyisitsososohard · 19/03/2023 10:34

Oh no you sound very elitist and ablist regarding reading vs listening to a book. How embarrassing for you.

It's not something if personally say, but there's no difference.

Someone rummaging loudly through drawers. People who say 'somefink'. Everybody else on the road. My overly-talkative neighbour. The prudes at femvox. Trolls on AIBU.

You don't know what you're talking about. Women are not prudes because they object to being treated like second-class citizens who are merely sexual commodities.


ExpatInSlavikLand · 19/03/2023 11:50

People (almost always men) who whistle in public, whether they're walking around, sitting on the bus, waiting in a queue, hanging around at work (doing anything but working)... Seriously, are these people pathologically unable to stay quiet for a few bloody minutes??


Mushroo · 19/03/2023 11:51

People who join Teams calls 3 minutes early so it pops up ‘keen person has started the call’.

I don’t know why it annoys me so much, but always makes me wonder if they dont have anything better to do for 3 mins like scrolling the internet

Wow, wind your neck in, this is clearly meant to be a light-hearted thread!

Especially when they walk in the very middle of the aisle so they're blocking everyone else from getting past them, grrr!


SkyandSurf · 19/03/2023 12:26

Social media posts that assume everyone is waiting at their keyboard's DYING for the opportunity to provide information that could have been googled to the poster.

'Ok, Hive mind! I need a boy's T-shirt in size three with a triceratops on it. Bonus points if it comes in multiple colours....aaaand GO!'

Fuck right off, take you 'bonus points' with you.

Broom heads for eyelashes

Nearly always accompanied by trout pouts, fake tan on bumpy looking skin and hair extensions straight off the back end of a horse.


Imamumgetmeoutofhere · 19/03/2023 12:57

People who leave their curtains or blinds open with their lights on when it's dark outside. It's like looking into a goldfish bowl and I find it really tacky

The double toilet roll holders you find in public places (and my office!). The end always seems to disappear and I seem to spend ages rolling the roll around hoping the end will drop down. Drives me nuts.

YES! And the roll is so heavy that as soon as you start pulling it rips off in tiny pieces 😭


PrincessHoneysuckle · 19/03/2023 13:25

The white plastic film on milk bottles.

Mil and sil

People who say Pacific instead of specific

People who say generally instead of genuinely.
"I generally love you' fuck off you thick fuck


fandjango · 19/03/2023 13:30

When people are ordering coffee or anything from a menu and say.."Can I get xxx"

I don't know why they don't say could I order or could I have and I don't know why it annoys me so much!
