Thread: Pet Peeves IV

  1. #4711
    Adults in a crowded place who insist on waving to each other and twisting into weird positions and jumping about to try and get each others attention.

    I just about get it when kids are involved but adults who are aware each other are in attendance doing it is both weird and annoying. At the game on Saturday a group of guys in front of me spent most of the 1st half depserately trying to wave to their mates in the East. 'I think he's looking', 'they said they were at this end', 'jump up now he's looking this way'. What does is achieve?

    Absolutely everything to do with the modern use of the phrase "cultural appropriation".

    Living under a rock as I do, I had no idea what you were on about until this news item regarding a recent talent show winner and their recent restyling,,,,
    I'm not sure what's more worrying, the fact that folk aren't allowed to style there hair in such a way as it might offend because they're "not from that cultural background" or the fact that the commentators seemed to have missed the fact that people have been stealing/borrowing/mimicking the fashions from around the globe for millennia.

    That is astonishing. Is that what it's come to? We might as well ban white soul singers while we're at it.

    People at sporting events that recognise themselves on the big screen and proceed to jump about and wave like a mad man/woman. (It can be forgiven if a child does it).

    Crazy. This would have been perfect for the right to offend thread!

    Rugby fans do that especially. It must be because they are enjoying themselves I suppose!

    Why do they always wave at the screen rather than in the direction of the camera?

    Why have cars got bigger when I thought society had determined itself to become more environmentally friendly? We parked behind a new Mini yesterday which was bigger than our Toyota Yaris!

    Fiat are taking the piss with the 500 range. I remember when you could change a wheel on one them without a jack. Some of them are the size of a Range Rover now.

    When youíve got a passenger in the car and they are sort of half singing along/half mumbling the words to the song on the radio.

    Shut up and let me listen to the song instead of having to listen to someone that cannae sing drone along out of tune.

    Thing that annoys me about that is I inevitably turn out to the the bad guy for being grumpy when either giving dirty looks or tell them to shut up when itís them thatís being the nippy ones in the first place.

    There is an advert with almost the same strapline on every morning when watching Sky Sport News.

    I don't remember what it's for but it appears to be "acted" by disabled people striving to be a can rather than a can't.

    I'm not aware of any parents taking offence at that one.

    People saying the most obvious things during meetings, things I'd be embarrassed to say because they are so obvious. Some bosses seem to absolutely love this utter ***** though!!

    Also people that can sit in meetings and talk about the most trivial point ever. Just had a meeting (as you may have guessed) about our new filling line at work and someone was complaining and asking about the colour of the coffee machine in the break room!!!

    I hate meetings at work in general.

    I'd wager about 85% of the ones I have attended have been organised by someone wanting to avoid real work. Most of the content could have been discussed in 2 or 3 emails.

    Also get the opposite at my work. Why have a 5 minute meeting face to face when 3 weeks of back and forth emails can drag things out for no reason other than it would mean someone having to actually organise themselves

    That awkward silence after the "great to put a face to a name" moment with a colleague you've got f all to talk about with.

    Yep, let's have a meeting to allow those people who can't manage their Inbox a chance to turn up late with obligatory Costa in hand, nod their heads a lot, stray off topic several times resulting in absolutely nothing being decided with the next folk knocking on the meeting room door waiting to get in.

    That awkward moment when someone walks up to you, addresses you by name, shakes your hand and asks how you are doing and you haven't got a scooby who they are. Happened to me on Sunday, still trying to work out who he was.

    Radio stations that announce a 'brand new' song by an artist that they have been playing for weeks if not months. My partner insists on having Forth 1 on in the car and they are particularly bad for this. Not only have they been playing it for weeks they also play the same song about 10 times a day.
    Forth 1 has went downhill rapidly the past 2 years. It used to have a good variety of old and new songs but seems to have slipped into the "24/7 top 40" niche that so many radio stations already have.

    Fed up leaving a meeting and having to ask for confirmation that there are no action points.

    That's because "popular" music has gone downhill as well. When you have charts made up from different sources and and artist with 6 songs in the top 40 that all sound the same. It was bad enough for a few years when all they played were talent show winners but when Ed Sheerin releases every song from his album as a single what chance do you have of getting a bit of variety.
