    I think every bag should be put in the hold on aircraft. Even folk with small bags trying to get organised is just an almighty pain, and a clutter free flight has to be more enjoyable surely. On an off the planes quicker and let's face it, lugging bags about an airport is also no fun at all.

    Not possible, there's too many items on the dangerous cargo list that are ok to carry on your person or in cabin baggage that are prohibited to be carried in the hold to make that viable.

    When someone at work wants to annoy you with some arsey question but starts off with just messaging "Hey how are you?"

    You don't care how I am, I don't care how you are, cut the bull and get to the point.

    Cigarette lighters, gas cartridges, lithium batteries and lots of other combustible, explosive or corrosive items that could be hazardous but be controlled in the cabin because the crew have the necessary training to deal with them but would be lethal for the aircraft in the hold should they be faulty, because emergency actions couldn't be carried out due to the hold being unreachable.

    It's ridiculous the amount of carry-ons these days. What ever happened to handbags?

    Another gripe is the folks who stand side by side on the moving walkways or escalators.
    To them I say, "like you appear to do your brain, use half of it and let other people pass".

    Flew to London last year for work. The airline allowed 2 pieces of hand luggage, all fine. When coming home, some of the ‘frequent flyer, business traveller’ types starting boarding with 4 to 6 carry ons, from medium suitcases, huge suit carriers, massive laptop bags etc. The plane was barely half full when parents with young children, older passengers, etc, started to be told by the crew that they’d need to get all their hand luggage checked into the hold as every overhead locker was completely full, while those who had taken up the space are sitting ignoring this.

    The crew should be telling these folk as they board they have too much and will need to check some of it.

    People who begin speaking by saying "So" as though they're about to relate something really important. When did that come in?
    Worse are folk who preface statements with "I tell you what".
    What vacuous American TV show has spawned this way of talking?

    Also "so" at the end of a sentence. I'm going to the shops so.... so what?

    There was a Glasgow version popular at one time when sentences ended with an unnecessary 'but'.

    They like an unnecessary "just" at the end of a sentence in Northern Ireland. Tbf it's not their worst crime against the English language... so it's not.

    Another is adding ‘so I was’ to the end of setences, or a similar phrase depending on what was said.

    i was freezing at the match so I was.
    it was Baltic so it was.
    i was so happy so I was.

    and on and on

    I moaned about this very thing on this thread not so long ago. I also included the annoying affectation of starting a sentence with ‘ You know what ....’, so we’re singing from the same hymn book. I can't understand folk who are slaves to language fads and fashions. I squirm now when I hear it.

    I'm very guilty of that, but my family on my dad's side is from Donegal and they all did it too.

    It's certainly an Irish thing at least in part, so
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    I thought it was "sure" at the end of a sentence in Donegal or "hey" or indeed both 😊 lovely place though sure

    I often get banter from mates down in London for adding ‘about’ when, for example, asking somewhere where they live.

    Happened Tuesday night in local boozer ‘ where do you live about?’ caused much hilarity! I have no idea what’s they’re on about!!!!!!

    The smugness of people who tell others they watch "TedTalks" videos, absolute roasters who think they are up there with Ghandi because they've watched a YouTube video.

    People who ask where do you stay rather than where do you live.

    Isn't that a regional dialect thing?

    It irritates the life out of me when people say "I sawr it", but I'm told that's regional too.

    It's not Scottish that's for sure.

    I wish there wasn't a swear filter for this thread.

    'Kin adverts for toothpaste or brushes when all the 'kin models have perfect 'kin teeth and and perfect 'kin smiles.

    The one that's doing my head in just now is the Oral B one when the perfect 'kin model is brushing her 'kin perfect teeth with an electric toothbrush which has no 'kin toothpaste on it at all!

    No sign of saliva dripping down her chin, no tell tale slavers on her 'kin perfect dress, just a 'kin toothbrush against one 'kin perfect tooth.

    Aaaaargh.

    A bit like the ads for keep fit equipment. Everybody's a Slenderella on them. No sign of any fat bar stewards like meself sweating buckets just trying to climb onto the damn apparatus.

    I had a colleague who grew up and studied in the south-west of England and subsequently came up here to work, settled down with a family etc. He realised he was becoming naturalised when friends from down south pointed out he said he stayed in Edinburgh rather than lived in Edinburgh.

    The clock above Frasers at the West End hasn't worked for years despite being an iconic landmark.
    Meanwhile the sound of redevelopment thunders everywhere around.

    Sums up the new Edinburgh for me.

    The endless stream of feedback requests for everything you do.
    I suggest that they hire more folk to do the front line stuff and stop wasting time and money on questionnaires.

    Reminds me of the lion and ant story.

    On the few occasions that my companies IT department gets something right and fixes your issue, you get an email telling you the issue is resolved instantly followed by another asking you how well they had done. These don't seem to appear when they have taken days to resolve issues or wiped 12 years of Archived material like they managed to do to me about three years ago!!

    People who don't talk straight and try and manipulate you. I've just spent 2 days fighting to get someone's education holiday (It's a German thing) sorted after they were planned to work the weekend between the 2 weeks school they'd been granted. Turns out the didn't expect me to be able to rescue the situation and were counting on me failing so they could get a refund for the course. Result is now they have to take and pay for a two week French course that they don't want and I spent 2 days fighting to get them what they are entitled to and now I'm the bad guy.

    I hate films that whenever there’s a scene in a garage or a building site or an adventure/spy type film when everyone’s getting kitted up for a mission at night there’s always somebody with a grinder making sparks. Does my head in.

    Thanks! Now, of course, when us netters watch films where there’s scenes in a garages or a building sites or an adventure/spy type films when everyone’s getting kitted up for a mission at night, we'll spot the bod with a grinder making sparks and think OMG, there's Alfiembra.
