just driven past 2 women power walking and one of them had an IPOD on. How rude would you have to be to invite your mate out power walking and then listen to music all the way round instead of talking to them!! Wierd!!

I once sat in the cinema behind 2 teenage girls who both had walkmans on all the way through the film - now that is just bizarre!!

sorry - just needed to share!

How rude


Boco · 09/05/2007 10:24

I don't like it when someone you're with is constantly texting their friends, then reading their texts and roaring with laughter or smirking without sharing the joke. Makes me want to fling their phone into the road.

(yes Durdle YOU do that)

people who spit
feel like running over and rubbing their head in it


LieselVentouse · 09/05/2007 10:28

I once put somebodys mobile in their pint cause they sat all night at a night out texting their pals. So rude

Its not anything that really gets in the way of my life, but the thing that bugs me is woman who are still standing at the school gate chatting at least half an hour after the kids have all gone in! I can't understand it, why don't you just go home with each other and drink coffee together!

My mum asked me to go on holiday with her to keep her company as she had no-one else to go with. It was ferry and coach to Italy and I get very travel sick. She spent most of the journey (all of the ferry crossing) with her ipod on, reading magazines and eating the snacks she'd packed herself..... (while I sat there like a wally feeling sick..)

When people ask for help, advice or ideas and then just dismiss your suggestions as cr*p.


Bucketsofdynomite · 09/05/2007 10:32

People who put dirty cups on the wrong side of the sink. Surely it's clear that the side with the draining rack is for clean ones. I don't get I much.


Bucketsofdynomite · 09/05/2007 10:33

Oops 'Don't get out much'. I don't get I much neither, few do.


GrumpyOldHorsewoman · 09/05/2007 10:33

I'm with you there, Powder. Especially those who post on the 'Am I Being Unreasonable' threads, and then jump down the throats of those who dare to say 'yes, you are'


Manictigger · 09/05/2007 13:54

Dancingtina - I don't think the 2 powerwalking women thing is either that rude or unusual. I know of women who go out running in pairs for safety but who listen to music because they find it helps motivate them. Afterwards they go to the pub to chat I agree the teenage girl thing is bizarre - obviously too much pocket money for their own good.

God I must be having a good day, I can't think of anything that is bugging me,(apart from 3 flies that keep buzzing around and landing on lo's toes).


scatterbrain · 09/05/2007 14:03

What gets me is people who post "What x said" - why bloody bother - "x" already said it !!! And it seems very childish to me ! Grrrr !


IcingOnTheCake · 09/05/2007 14:11

Bucketsofdynomite i agree with you. I hate it when my dp puts all the dirty stuff in the washing up bowl unrinsed instead of leaving it on the side,so i then have to take it all out the bowl to fill it with water and rinse off the cups and plates etc. Its petty but annoying.


NoodleStroodle · 09/05/2007 14:13

Ooo that is annoying icing.
I also have DP leaving washing up half way through and then leaving cold washing up water. Ugh.


scatterbrain · 09/05/2007 14:15

Oh yes - mena nd washing up - that bugs me !!

dh will put greasy oven trays and pans in hot soapy water and leave them there all night - so I get to clean the solid fat off the bown and sink - AND wash the bloody stuff up !!!

AND - he still cannot wash the outside of the suacepans !! WHY ??


Fimbo · 09/05/2007 14:15

OOh Scatterbrain, I have just posted that on a thread for the first time ever!

I hate the "for sale" threads and especially the ones who link to they stuff they are selling on Ebay and yes I know I don't have to look but there could be something I do actually want to buy.


scatterbrain · 09/05/2007 14:17

I'll let you off so long as you promise not to do it again Fimbo !!


IcingOnTheCake · 09/05/2007 14:18

And then when they have washed up, they like to remind you all week by saying 'well i did wash up on Monday' and you wanna say 'well i [email protected]*king wash up everyday so stop going on about it, what do you want a medal!'


Fimbo · 09/05/2007 14:18

I promise Miss Scatterbrain

scatterbrain · 09/05/2007 14:18

Jolly good young Fimbo - run along now then.


RGPargy · 09/05/2007 14:19

GGRRR!! I'm with you, Icing! My DS and DP both put their plates, cups, cutlery into the sink, only for me to remove them and stack them neatly with the other mountain of washing up that no doubt i'll be mug enough to do.

My biggest bug with DS is not bothering to wipe the side down after filling it with bread crumbs (after toasting) and spilling a pound of sugar over the side because he cant put his 5 teaspoons of sugar in the large hole that is a cup!

Oh and people at work who USE YOUR MUG without asking your permission!!! I HATE other people using my mug at work and some bloody snobby lawyer used it the other day right in front of me FOR HIS TEA!!!! I felt like staring at him and saying "Nice cup. Do you mind?" and demanding he give it back to me!


rabbleraiser · 09/05/2007 14:19

When you're on a thread, and give your opinion on the subject, and someone swoops at you and tells you you're wrong. FFS, how can an opinion be right or wrong?


expatinscotland · 09/05/2007 14:20

Mobile phones bug the shit out of me.


rabbleraiser · 09/05/2007 14:21

Ah yes, mobiles get me too.
