Lazy people. Just generally. I work in a three-storey building and people genuinely wait and get a lift from the ground floor to the first when the stairs are right next to them.

I can understand those with disabilities etc, but I know for a fact some of the lardies I see getting into it everyday are fine to walk up

Has anybody seen the woman in the Ricoh Tesco who has the really good mullet? Sometimes she has it crimped as well.
Lived near her since I was a lad and she has always always had this style of haircut, from the 70's

Sat in the office tired and bored, so here goes...

People who spell lose as "loose" and vice versa
The one that pees me off is aloud.

My daughter is on Instagram and WhatsApp and obviously text and I kid you not, there must be at least 70% of the kids who says 'I am aloud to go,' or 'I am not aloud.'

Only seen my daughter and one other kid spell it properly.

Nearly as bad as 'your' instead of 'you're.'

Hence why I said mate given to them because they are fat , I just think that it is the worst thing to give them health wise ,not a lot of encouragement really,

But my point is they may NOT have been fat before being disabled.

BBC says 'outside the UK'
People who write or say "Would of" and "Could of" instead of "Would have" and "Could have".
People who write or say "Good" as an adverb instead of "Well" e.g. "He did good" instead of "He did well".

I've never corrected anyone's grammar. I would say more than annoying me it makes me sad that people can butcher the English language and not care.

I feel "the boy did good" is a natural football saying!

Right here goes:
People who start sentences with So. Really is my number 1 hate
People who say pacific instead of specific
People hogging the middle lane on motorways
Young mums more interested in their mobile phones than talking to their kids
White lads, in fact any lads, who talk and act like they're from the hood
Nobs on their phones whilst driving
People who dont give any space to cyclists
People on bikes who ride 2 abreast in traffic
People who dont indicate in their cars

That'll do for now.

So, I agree with all of those.
What about the couples I've seen out to dinner where both are checking their mobiles instead of talking to each other.
When I was dating, there were no mobile phones and couples actually looked at each other and talked.

I was going to put that one but got disturbed and lost my train of though. Had to change a lightbulb upstairs to be pacific!
It really gets my goat when I see a couple sitting there over a meal texting. I fell like going up to them and starting a conversation with them just to break the silence.
I must be getting old.

Maybe common but not correct English.
"The boy done good" should be "The boy did well".
Thanks for clearing that up, Gaz.
I'll sleep better now.

Shop assistants/checkout girls who start a conversation with someone else while they're in the middle of serving me and suddenly act as if I don't even exist any more. :grumpy:

Ditto if you are next in queue & they are chatting to the previous customer about nothing job related.

People who say the word pacific or pacifically when they mean specifically...
And people who mispronounce the word pronunciation as pronounciation....
