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.

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. 😂

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 do it before you start packing- I put my purse next to the bags.
DelphiniumBlue · 18/03/2023 17:54
But how can you get your purse out at the same time as bagging the shopping? You can pause the bagging to get your purse out, but that's the same amount of delay as doing it at the end.

People that wait till they're at the till and all their shopping has been beeped through and the assistant has told them the total and then, and only then, do they start rooting around in their bag for a means to pay. What? Did you think you were getting it all for free? Aaaaaargh!!!!!
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!

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.

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.

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??

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

People who lean over their trolleys, basically pushing it with their elbows and usually walking REALLY slowly in front of you
Especially when they walk in the very middle of the aisle so they're blocking everyone else from getting past them, grrr!

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.

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 😭
