    Speaking of email, people that sign off an email with just 'Thanks', no fullstop. What's that all about? Are you too busy to finish it properly or do you deem yourself far too important?? It's the equivalent of walking away during conversation - twats.

    I'd rather have an unpunctuated thanks than no reply at all.

    Presumably a comma is acceptable? As then combined with your email signature would be:

    Thanks,

    Daniel


    I don't - I write my name again even with the signature below.

    I once received a "krgds L" though - I imagine that wouldn't go down well.

    Probably mentioned already... folk that skip the queue at a bus stop.

    When I got to the bus stop this morning there was only one other person there. The stop was quite busy when the bus came but the first guy was waiting for another bus so I went to get on the bus when a French family came running up to the stop and pushed me out of the way to get on the bus! Luckily the bus wasnít full, Iíd be raging if it was full (as it usually tends to be by my stop) and I didnít get on.

    Which brings me to another point... bus drivers who have a strange way of managing the maximum number of passengers on the bus. For example, five people get off the bus but they only let two off. Then they go mental at you, swearing at you when you point it out.

    Soup.

    More precisely these big plastic containers of soup, some of them look (and taste) lovely but I donít understand the size of them. Theyíre too big to fit in a normal size bowl and thereís not enough to stretch over two bowls. Got a can of soup yesterday and it fitted perfectly into a normal size bowl, why donít these soup makers all make them that size?

    I normally find myself making it, pouring it into a bowl, eating a bit of it to make room and then pouring the rest in. Nobody else ever seems to have this problem and I donít know what they do to make it work?!

    Obviously I could just eat it from itís container but that doesnít seem right to me.

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned in the 214 odd (for me anyway) pages on this thread:

    People who do not know when and appropriately to use the "reply all" function on a bloody email.

    Yes, we're a large group of people. Yes, we've all been invited to the same event. No, Andrea, I don't ****ing need to know you're going to try your best to make it along. JUST EMAIL THE ****TING ORGANISER!!!!
    This.....

    Similarly an email where the question is "can the person who spoke to Mr/Mrs xxxx please let me know by return" and everyone in it replies "not me"...

    Did you read the damn question

    We have three toasters in the work canteen - one for bagels, and two for toast (one for lightly toasted, the other for well done).

    There are signs on the toasters explaining this and on each sign there is the instruction to not adjust the settings.

    People adjust the settings. Does my head in.

    Thats nuts! I would adjust the settings just to annoy people. Why not just let people do their own settings?

    They go on fire - well, the toast does for a start which then triggers the fire alarm. It's a very big building to evacuate for someone's toast burning.

    They also take multiple people's toast at once so if everyone's adjusting it then folk would be waiting ages.

    And there is the thing that really bugs me, your suggestion to get rid of them is a common solution to similar issues where ******g idiots canít follow an instruction.

    Itís not the toast I am talking about, itís the common theme of folk not following instruction that ruins things for everyone.

    People who dump all sorts of stuff around the recycling bins at Tesco. After the weekends there are mattresses, tvs, furniture etc all over the place. Lazy tossers.

    Though slightly less lazy than just tossing it all on the roadside, which isn't that uncommon.

    Charities who only accept a minimum contribution and a regular one at that. Iíve just had Red Cross guys at the door looking for a minimum weekly contribution of £3 per week. I said I wouldnít sign up for a regular donation but would give them a tenner one off. They politely said no thanks and moved on.

    My dad used to do this until I reminded him his "free" bus pass may well be free at point of use to him but his local authority picks up the tab(they don't pay the full fare but a significant percentage).
    He no longer jumps on the bus for short journeys, even to the point where he now walks from Bonnyrigg to Eskbank Tesco most mornings, from the sublime to the ridiculous!

    Me and the good wife have an 11 week old so getting a couple of hours to watch a film together is a rareity. So the wife spends ages going though every subscription service we have to find a film and then tells me just to choose one as sheís not bothered what we watch, which I do. Then moans at the film choice (Papillion, the original not the crap looking remake) 😒

    I haven't seen this happen anywhere but Edinburgh, and it's very common within the city as well. Some folk must wait longer for the bus than it would have taken to walk the distance they travelled.
