Same ol' ***** still sticking milk into a cup with the teabag in, leaving it in there for mins whilst letting the kettle boil. Heads in phone, distracted, kettle has boiled and been left for at least a couple of mins, then they pour not boiling water into cold teabag milk, barely pay it any attention, stir a few times, then lift teabag out without even straining precious flavour and walking away without even once contemplating the horror they've committed.

I want to slice their faces off.

Absolute ****ing troglodytes, the lot of em.

Don't worry mate, I had to try 3 or 4 jackets myself before I found one that didn't leave me looking like 3 linked sausages...

Every time you use a blast of screenwash the wipers go across twice, which leaves the windscreen nice & clear. After a couple of seconds when the screen is almost dry, it goes across AGAIN leaving a sh!tty smear across the screen. I must have used half my bloody reservoir of the stuff tthis morning.


My 14 year old Audi does that, it's very annoying.

Little trick that works on mine though, if you wait until the windscreen wiper has settled after the second "pass", flick the control to make it go up once again immediately and it won't go up a few seconds later.

You want a decent cup of tea, you have to drop out of the tea round and say "I'm making my own all the time, and no-one else's, ever". Once you've got over the offence and sarky comments you can just make tea how and when you want it.

Unless you are the boss and they are the minion making your drink because it's in their JD, in which case sack them for gross misconduct.

Battery terminal on the bike coming loose at 60mph and me rolling to a stop on a really busy A road with no hard shoulder. Yeah that was fun.

Horsey types in supermarkets.
You can guarantee bumping into one of these at the weekend in Tesco's. Walking round a food shop FFS plastered in mud & god knows what else. Usually a big red faced old boot that makes you fear for the horse if that gets on its back.

Yes, quite a lot of the information they 'teach' you on PT courses are years out of date.

People that say "listen" before they are about to make a point. It just makes me not want to listen at all, as if they think their every word is so important..

"As I said" or "Like I said" is used by every broadcaster and interviewee in the UK now.

In fairness, that is required when you're dealing with a particularly feckless employee and you're cc'd into other people, to gently remind them that you have already told them once previously exactly what they needed to know.

Little drop of loctite on the end of the bolt after you have tightened the terminal on will stop that
