My bank writing to me offering a loan, a weekly occurrence to be fair. The irritation is that this one is specifically offering a loan to buy a car and "You are eligible to borrow £18.500 and could own a BMW 3 series" like that is something to aspire to! Why the **** would I want one of them, I wouldn't lower myself to own one of them if it was free.

Even by modern banking standards, that is disgraceful behaviour.

A very minor thing, but people who call lunch 'dinner' and dinner 'tea'.

The evening meal is dinner. It's not negotiable.

Only in 1936 it is.

Lunch is lunch. Dinner is dinner.

People at boxing "Wooooing" a la Rick Flair and his fans in WWE when a boxer they support lands a punch against an opponent as per the Smith V Skogland fight tonight. Bloody annoying.

I originally put 'midnight feast' but that always sounds a bit Billy Bunter to me.

Currently on holiday and surrounded by whippet racing, gravy drinking, wife beating northerners who look at espresso martinis with a sense of bewilderment and distrust. Its becoming tiring having to educate these cave dwellers that dinner = evening meal and tea is a hot beverage or had on Sunday's.

The expression "oh my days". I have no idea why it annoys me as much as it does.

Hear hear! It's one of my major bugbears and one I always correct northerners on at every opportunity.
