Who else finds some ads. irritating?
Our top 3 favourites, which draw comment every time are:- The female who can find nothing to wear, ends up wearing husband's shirt. 2. Female belabouring male regarding 100% compensation. 3. Young rep pushing banking ideas too big boss in the swimming pool. Products not mentioned - just in case!!!

Anything that contains animated things such as telephones, and anything with walking talking animals - normally used for selling insurance etc

Irritating TVAdverts

Yes they ALL are, hate the way the sound doubles when the adverts are on never mind the shouting (Cillit Bang), irritating jingles, twisted pop songs, adverts for cars that have totally nothing to do with the product they are selling etc......

Have you been injured at a work place, or hurt in a public place.
You could be intitled to compensation.
God i hate those ads,for some reason they get right up my nose.
Ok rant over.

It's the timing of some of those ads that annoy me.. Usually when the husbands are at work. designed to tempt the little lady into parting with her money.
As for the double glazing adverts. How they sell anybody the product I do not know, because I would avoid them like the plague. shouting and bawling irritates the hell out of me. I'm such a quiet peaceful sort of chap.

The deodorant advert in the supermarket.... "bow wisha bow wow"..... or something like that. I have to turn the sound off, or even change channels. Don't know why it irritates me so much but it does....

How about consolidation loan adverts during kids' TV programmes, or, even worse, on kids' programme channels.

You can just hear it.

Kiddie: Mum, I want the latest xxxx toy/gadget. It only costs £(lots)

Mum: No, we haven't got the cash.

Kiddie: But Mum, it's not a problem. There are lots of companies who will GIVE you money :-((

Pester power...

All of them.

The woman who puts on her husband's shirt isn't just irritating it's downright daft. Everyone in the restaurant would be sniggering about the silly woman who forgot to put her jeans/trousers/leggings on.
