    I don't see the problem with the top one.
    If they're doing it loud enough for others to hear it's a problem.

    Why is it a problem? If I heard two people on the bus talking about needing bread and milk, I'd not think anything of it. If it's just one person on the phone saying the same thing, whys that different?

    I've not got a problem with phone conversations like that on buses provided that they're short. It's the needlessly long & loud ones that do my nut in. You can have that inane chat with your pal when you're off the bus; why make everyone else listen to it?

    Mobile smart phones in general. I never realised how stressful my life had become and how much work I do on my phone after hours until this last week or so in Tenerife when I left it in the safe for the whole time.

    Newspaper readers

    Men - and it is invariably men - who open and read a newspaper at the counter thereby blocking access to the papers.

    It's only 70p, just buy it cheapskate!

    I see that all the time and it really annoys me as well. If I want to read a paper I buy one. How tight can you be to stand reading a paper you haven't paid for?

    I used to do that before twitter arrived on the scene.

    Wasn't the cost, was the hassle of carrying the paper about when I only really wanted to check if there was any stories about the Hibs...........plus I used to save about 20p

    Sorry 😉

    As others have already mentioned, there's no need for everyone on the bus to have to listen to someone's conversation. I manage to talk on the phone at a reasonable volume so don't see why others can't.

    I will get my disclaimer out the way first as what I'm about to say can be used for good and really can be a help and is great when it comes to children but.......

    The amount of missing person/have you seen this person posts on social media, 3/4 of people have just been on a session and ended up crashed out somewhere

    In my late teens and early twenties my folks would have had me on the most wanted list if social media was about then

    As I would with my boy. No stone would be left unturned if anything happened to him.

    House and car alarms that go off for no reason.

    There's a car alarm going off right now near here - it bleeps for about 30 seconds, stops, then starts again after five seconds. Yesterday there was a house alarm going pretty much all day.

    Fix the ******* things you ******* *******s

    The price of toothbrushes. You can pay three quid.

    And they get more "Turbodynamic" all the time, like cars!

    I get the Tesco Value Four in a bag for a quid. Nice plain colours.

    As for the battery ones - forget it.

    Got to agree with you on this one. I mean how clean do you need your teeth to be that would prompt you to pay 149.00 for a Philips Sonic Clean electric toothbrush?
    Madness.

    I was given a new toothbrush as a gift and was using it for a couple of months before my wife enquired what I thought of the electric versions. After switching the bloody thing on I was somewhat puzzled as to what to do. Do you just hold the brush and let it do the work, or brush in the normal fashion with the buzzing noise being the only difference as to what went on before? The battery is long dead now and I will never replace it , but still use the brush as I am not a lazy bar steward. Oh, it has hard bristles which is it's greatest feature, and why are they so bloody hard to get hold of nowadays?

    Real men don't want some pinko commie liberal please em all betwetting soft bristles. I mean when i was a lad......................

    oh and shirley it should be Gnashers

    We don't have crime in Caversham.

    Seriously, I went out and looked for the car - nobody near it - and the house one goes off all the time so unless they're really unlucky with burglars....

    Those big toilet roll dispenser you get in public toilets. The paper lets out 1 sheet before breaking off and then it takes you about 10 minutes to find the beginning of the roll again.

    There will be a technical name and explanation for this but I'm not familiar with website design so I don't know - news websites like the Independent and the Edinburgh Evening News load up but take ages to configure so if you go to click on a headline too quickly you end up opening the next link up or down.

    You don't get it with the Guardian or BBC for example - is it just a cheaper set-up?

    That drives me nuts too, the technical term is "****" but it's just poor design.

    31 year old manual toothbrush user. Never had any work done at the dentist, no fillings etc. Scale and polish every 6 months and I'm good to go.

    A toothbrush in decent condition is far more important than a fancy price tag. Change it every few weeks and you'll be grand.
