What really 'grinds your gears'?

What really annoys you?

Mine is loud peoplE - The sort that talk over you, always think they're right and don't listen either when they do eventually shut up.

Second to that is noisy eaters & those that chew with their mouths open, basically bad table manners.

My wife, oh I do hope she doesn't know my login for the forum, otherwise I'm in trouble, lol!.

Managers who think because you haven't got kids that you have no reason whatsoever to work all hours god sends. (Yes this happened to me today)

Front foglights on cars that are on when there is no fog and visibility is good.


That idiot on the M25 last week that nearly drove me into the central reservation.

Foul-mouthed youths that hang around outside my place of work, scaring the hell out of my customers and will NOT move along!

Phew that feels better - now for a drive home followed by a nice cool pint.

Can you get one of those devices that make a noise that drive away teenagers?

The language of youth, 'borrow me a .....'

I cannot stand that question, it really grinds my gears, along with countless other abuses of English the youth use today.

Not all of us teenagers are "foul-mouthed youths" and those high pitched screechy things really give a headache!

For me its people who fail to grasp the concept of common courtesy.

And David Dickinson.

. . . . as with anything, it's the minority that spoil it for everyone else. As with football, cricket, motoring, manners . . .
