Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

Recommended Posts

People who don't say "I'm going to check my email" but say "I'm going to check my emails" or, worse, in written form, "e-mails."

When you wake up in the morning, do you say "I'll just have a look and check if the mails are here" or "Are the posts here yet?" When you check your email you are checking a mail account, singular, for any conceptual mail, singular. You are not checking on mails as you would check a chicken coop in the morning for chickens and eggs.

Actually, I'll extend this: I really, really dislike people who cannot use a language correctly. It's unfair of me, and snobbish, but that's the way it is. People who cannot communicate in either one of written or spoken word (as I understand that some people who suffer from, say, dyslexia, are actually very structured and eloquent when speaking in person, and vice versa for some with speech troubles) are a source of constant annoyance to me.

Driving from Elgin to Inverness, getting picked up by the team bus and driven down to Denny, getting horsed 3-0 by Falkirk in your first game of the season and having to do the journey home again. :angry: We were keech.

Edit: And what's even worse is that they were a really average side too. :( Just better than us.

Do Shelly and Suzanne play for Caley now?

F***ing bus drivers. Why do they feel they have the right to pull out from a bus-stop at any moment they choose. If I'm parked beside the road waiting to join the main carriageway I don't just pull out into the middle of a line of passing cars and expect everyone to stop while I complete the maneouvre. C***s. :angry:

People who can do no wrong in the eyes of their parents. Like my mate. Always acts the arse, always making a tit of himself, but its always somebody elses fault. He gets a lickin for being a cheeky c**t and then goes and takes the lad who punched him to court and wins money for it.

Then this Saturday gets mortal, shouts a load of abuse at a girl and keeps on going on at her all night. She eventually smacks him one and he rolls around the floor like a tit and calls the police. But his girlfriend blames us for getting him drunk!! :angry: Didn't realise he was any different from us and needs us to look after him. He acts like a tit because he can get away with it, and he always does.

Another one. Watching Sky Sports News waiting for something to come on and when it does my mam starts talking to me. Tell her im trying to listen to it then she starts an arguement. So I miss the whole thing.

Plus, when my mam is speaking to someone and she gets me to turn the TV down so far that I can't hear it. I want to listen to the TV, not her conversation. :angry:

Shit loads more things annoy me but I wont list them all or I will be here all day :D

People who, in all probability, you will only meet once in your life, saying 'See you later' (i.e. petrol station attendants in Cornwall, bus conductresses in Outer Mongolia) Let's think about this. It is f***ing highly unlikely that I will see you later so don't get your f***ing hopes up. Twat.

Err..because they do have the right?

Rule 198: Buses, coaches and trams. Give priority to these vehicles when you can do so safely, especially when they signal to pull away from stops. Look out for people getting off a bus or tram and crossing the road.

They always try to pull out in front of me without even seeming to notice I am behind them. Annoys me and no way would I be letting them out just to sit behind them going along at 20mph for the next 5 mins.

Possibly, but there's so many of the Tweedmouth Ultras that could fit the bill! :P:lol:;)

There is a clear difference between approaching a bus at a bus stop with it's right indicator on to re-join traffic on the main road, and you slowing down to let them out. That's fine, I do that. What annoys me is when I'm closer and can't really slow down for them, and they put their right indicator on then pull out, and I have to brake sharply to avoid hitting them.

They should wait for the car on the main road to give a signal that they're allowing the bus to pull out, rather than to just think that the indicator makes it alright for them to pull out regardless of what's happening on the main road.

Cars on main roads always have priority.

It's a valid question, I rarely see you participate in depth in any Ross County related discussions. No point in mistaking it for being catty, it won't get you very far in life if you think everyone who is just asking a question is being horrible to you! :huh:
