    Long sleeved t shirts.

    Very rare to find one that keeps a decent shape. No idea why adding material to the sleeves makes them more likely to fit badly so quickly.
    The ones i get out the kids section in asda keep their shape nae bother.

    People who borrow tools and use them for a different purpose than they are intended for. A chisel is not for taking a ****** screw out!!!!

    Conversely, a screwdriver is not a chisel! In a moment of desperation I used a flat blade to clean out the receiver of a mortice lock,,,,one deft blow from the hammer, the handle shattered and my hand got mashed.

    Lesson learned!

    You've just reminded me of actual corrugated nails (joint fasteners) from my apprentice days ;-)

    Film lids on packaging that are impossible to peel off. A particular pain when you're trying to open something piping hot from the microwave.

    Easy solution for that; instead of piercing the film lid, open it slightly before putting it in the microwave. Makes it much easier to open once it's as hot as the surface of the sun.

    I often do that but when you pull the lid back the escaping steam still burns up to your elbow.

    Microwaves in general.

    I only use it to heat up my cups of tea that I forget I have made myself :-)

    Supernoodles should be banned from the microwave. They stink to high heaven and the smells lingers in there for ages even after cleaning .
    Gies me the boat.

    Add in dishwashers too.
    One of the worst things I have bought .
    It takes up space , nobody empties it , people put dirty dishes in with clean dishes and it stinks if nobody has turned it on.

    I once put noodles in the micro when I worked in a garage. Forgot to add the water and left them on for 5 minutes whilst i went to do somthing. Noodles caught flame and the micro smelled of burntness to the point we had to replace it

    One of my (yam) mates split up with his wife and found himself living alone for the first time at 45 years old.

    During the first week he arrived home pished and stuck a family size frozen lasagne in the microwave at full power for 50 minutes (conventional oven instructions) then went and fell asleep on the bog.

    The smoke detector saved the day.

    Parents who hand their very young children a tablet/ipad to keep them quiet at every opportunity rather than spend time with them, then moan like hell because the kid won't listen to them or put the tablet down when tbey're told to. Lazy parenting at it's best.

    Yeah, or people who completely ignore the fact that you've paid extra money for the legroom seats or the front row which I always do then proceed to sit where they bloody well like then get all moody about having to move to their seat 15-20 rows back. If you want to sit at the front, pay the cash to sit there ya freeloading pricks.

    I did once see a member of easy jet staff shift a punter who just sat at in front row, you know one of the business type ********s. It was brilliant. This was on a flight to London about 6 months ago. I went something like this.

    Steward, excuse me sir are you sure this is your allocated seat?

    Punter, yes I'm sure it is I've double checked my boarding pass.

    Steward, you must be mistaken sir as nobody has purchased these seats today. Can I see your boarding pass please?

    Punter, well "they" usually just let me sit here if its quiet...... he protested as he hands him the boarding pass.

    Steward, I'm sorry sir you seat is in row XX towards the rear of the aircraft please make your way down to it unless of course you wish to pay the 14.99 upgrade fee for sitting in the front row seats with extra legroom.

    Punter, I'm not going to pay that to sit here but since theres nobody sitting here can I can stay?

    Steward, says with a frown, I'm sorry sir. If you won't pay then take yourself away.

    I was poorless sitting watching this. The steward was fantastic.

    Ive had that before too, I always book a window seat on the left hand side of the plane, I don't know why I just do. Woman was sitting in my me seat as I got on and said excuse me you're in my seat I'm 9 A window seat. Woman responds - does it matter? I said no, I only booked this seat so you could sit here and to confuse the emergency services if we crashed. She soon moved her arse to her own seat.

    Trying to explain to my wife for the umpteenth time over the phone how to attach a document to an email and send it.

    I'd have more luck explaining the offside rule to her.

    On the plane theme, when you're sat there in the aisle seat reading away whilst folk board and someone who wants to take their seat next to you just stands in the aisle as if you're a ****ing savant that's meant to know they want in.

    Or they could just say "excuse me that's my seat" and away we go.

    Middle management chameleons. Change their whole stance on things to suit the boss they happen to be trying to impress that day. I absolutely hate it when folk feel they have to agree rather than contest their point and explain why they disagree/issue is being dealt with incorrectly.

    Directly opposite me coming up from LHR some poor bugger had to seat in front of him go full ****er and fully recline. He was basically concertina'd up with the guy's head on his chest.

    Unacceptable behaviour.

    Was sitting behind a young woman who wedged herself in her seat and put her feet up onto the back of the seat in front of her. When the guy in that seat tried to recline it I could see her pushing for all she was worth so that he couldn't recline it. Guy thought his seat was stuck and never tried again. Neat trick, she did also recline her seat later into me.

    The second action cancels out the first. As she was well aware of the annoyance it causes, ignorance cannot be used as an excuse.
    She's just another selfish a$$hole.
