Things That Shouldn't Annoy You - But Nevertheless Do
« on: November 04, 2010, 07:27:43 PM »
Something that shouldn't annoy me but nevertheless does is when someone walks down the street holding their mobile phone in an over - demonstrative manner. Not actually using it, just handling it in a manner last seen when Captain Kirk was about to use his communicator. And all this despite having a bag and pockets. Next.

Groups of 2 or three people who amble down corridors and walk in the middle.  FFS get in the slow lane and let me past.

drivers in the middle lane of the m'way when the nearside is empty.
drivers who stay out of the bus lane during the hours when the bus lane is open to all. Why don't they use those camera cars to nab them?   
drivers who don't say thanks when you leave a gap for them to get through


I think there's a pattern emerging here......

People who think the current Man band is still worth listening to..
Tribute bands..
MP3's..

drivers in the middle lane of the m'way when the nearside is empty.

Undertakers..
People who don't acknowledge you when you've pulled in to let them pass on the single track..
Virgin places don't mean a thing to people who never bring their hearts along.

In fact Drivers who have no idea how to use the lanes on a roundabout!! I really don't mind if you carve me up!!

Hmm, interesting suggestions....although in most cases mentioned so far I think these are things where feeling annoyed could be considered a reasonable response. What I'm looking for are things that shouln't be annoying.

In this connection I would like to add: Men wearing short trousers and and thinking it's alright. Shudder!

I thought that as I was typing, but I was on such a roll I thought 'bugger it'

I wear shorts most of the time. What's wrong with it?    Mind you, I s'pose you've got to have the legs for them, so answered it meself I think  ::)

...exactly, Rob. Nothing wrong with it at all. Practical and comfortable.

Wince, nevertheless.

How about: it's November and there's some people walking around wearing sunglasses. Not for eye protection purposes, but permanently raised in case of sudden super nova and posing value. Maybe it annoys me because I wish I'd thought of it first. Gnash.

... otherwise apparently intelligent people who use the non-existant word NUCULAR instead of the perfectly useable NUCLEAR ... it should not annoy me but I end up throwing shoes at the TV ...

People who can form opinions on music without actually listening to it.

Nick,

Think my list above fits this criteria quite well.
I shouldn't be annoyed that others can find pleasure in listening to the current Man farce..
I shouldn't be annoyed that tribute bands can make a living (and damn good one) sponging of off the creativity of others..

Some post just aren't worth responding too..

MD - As I'm sure you know, there's more to it than the music.

I'm biting, but only a little bit.

Tucky, it's an interesting one abut tribute bands. We've had this discussion before.  On the one hand,  are they taking the living away from young bands trying to get onto the gig circuit? On the other hand, are they keeping venues open enabling young bands to get on the gig circuit?   etc etc etc................

And there are 2 well known and highly accomplished musicians we know and love, doing their covers bit, and hopefully earning a good living doing it.....

which reminds me, surely somebody here knows whether Bob R is in Yorkshire tomorrow night    :)

I didn't think there was anything there to bite.    Mind you, women have been saying that to me for years  :o

So, does Mrs H know you've been offering for years, whatever it is you've been offering.

I think she needs to be told. In fact I'll tell her next time I'm at the Renfrew Ferry.

Mind you, I'll never find the b*gg*r, so not much for you to worry about there     ;D
