Britain's Best Home Cook, I've only seen a few minutes a couple of times. "We want you to cook a meal that reflects your personality" wtf does that actually mean?
And Claudia Winkleman, apart from doing a passable impression of Morticia Adamms, what skill does she possess?

Decided to drive to work today. Took me an hour and a quarter to drive 7 miles home today. I’ve run it quicker than that. When I was tired.

Raheem Sterling; and the commentators that constantly blow smoke up his a**e.

What a relief when he was substituted.

I tend to get irritated mostly by people doing simple things unnecessarily slowly and holding me up. Such as..

Cars accelerating too slowly when the light turns green.
Cars that always have to drive 10mph below the speed limit
Cars that start slowing down about half a mile before their turning, almost coming to a halt before they carefully turn the corner in slow motion.
People who are never ready when getting on the bus and spend an eternity rummaging through their bags looking for their buss pass or money
People who do the same as the above at the checkout in a shop
People too inept to efficiently use a self service checkout
People who walk too slow - especially groups of people who decide to walk in a line therefore blocking off attempts to overtake.
People who waffle on for 5 minutes before getting to the point.
1 hour meetings at work that could have been done in 5 minutes.

etc etc.

Try commuting and working in London, except that mine doesn't involve driving and I sometimes use the tube rather than using the bus, this is my day when working in the office.

I couldn't do that. That would be just far too many people to potentially get in my way. I'd end up having a breakdown.

You should have quoted Mega Rons properly formatted amendment by the way. He'll be upset that you're reposting my sloppily unformatted list.

Turns out the traffic's been mental round here the past few days because of this:

Should have their license taken off them for at least 6 months. No way was that driver paying any attention - staring at her phone, presumably.

I'm not working in Thames Ditton any more :( so shalln't be particularly affected by this. Shame, I did like that neck of the woods, especially running along the Thames this time of year.

You're absolutely right mate, it is a lovely part of the world; except for those seven days or so. Very irritating when The M25 is the lesser of all the evils.

But this is the "irritating" thread and then it wouldn't have irritated Mega Ron ;)

People who feel the need to constantly coat off a player trying his best at the World Cup.
