The other one that grips my s**t (and it seems to be mainly politicians) are the people that start their sentences with "Look", as if they're forcibly getting their point over in an instant.


You can add "Let's be clear" to that. (Again,mostly politicians)

"They turned around and said..." is a bugbear of mine, like ll these people do a full 360 spin before venturing an opinion.

hazard lights on cars being the same colour and flashing at the same speed as indicators
it bugs me when a car is parked in a bay on the high st and puts its hazards on, now to on coming traffic it looks as if the car is indicating and waiting to pull out

"I'm not being funny but" is another annoying one. Although to be fair they are usually correct, they wasn't funny.........

Saving stuff on the server? I constantly have to lecture people that a nonpersistent VDI session isn't a good place to save stuff - just like it says on the disclaimer when they connect. I'm usually sympathetic to the regular users that experience data loss that way, but anyone with "Senior" prefixing their IT job title (i.e. everyone my company employs in an IT position) gets no sympathy.

We are reprimanded for not doing everything on our server. Things save, when you save them. When they crash, they rarely seem to. And they've been crashing a lot recently.

It cannot continue.

We are told to save everything to the server.

I normally copy things across to the servers every week or two instead,

When people speak, it always amuses me (more than irritating me) when they talk a few decibels louder, and with a slightly stern look, as if the volume and expression makes them right/better than others.

Also was in a meeting today with a Doris who kept on cutting into every other sentence
with 'yes yes yes' .... that was irritating.

And before you ask, no pics of her saying 'yes yes yes' ..... miserable and sour faced are all the words you need to create a mental image!!

Stop talking when that happens and when asked why, reply with "you obviously know it already".

Microsoft recently changed the way that patches are done
It has caught out a few sys admins, some systems appear to crash if the required reboots are not performed

Just a guess of course

Yes, good idea, cheers - I had also toyed with the idea of talking complete mumbo jumbo as I am pretty certain that she is not listening when she is saying it.
