    Guys who insist on the hottest curries as if it's a badge of courage or something.

    Why don't they just carry a tin of curry powder about with them and ladle some in?

    After all, that's what the restaurants do!

    The lack of consistency in the flavour of pringles. Some are laden with flavouring others pretty bland even though they are supposed to be the same flavour.Does my nut in

    Everyone leaving a Lothian Bus says thank you to the driver these days. What's that all about?

    They'll be giving them tips next, just for doing their job - not very well either in many cases. Jerking folk around and causing arm and shoulder injuries.

    I thank everyone that serves me and provides a service including bus drivers. Just because they are doing a job doesn't mean you can't thank them.

    Likewise. People thank me everyday just for doing my job and I appreciate it.

    I'd say people who don't show basic manners like saying please and thank you is a far bigger peeve for me than people that do.

    Its good manners, I've been doing it since I was about 3, must just be the way I was brought up.

    Aye, and see what kind of response you get when you do the same to her when Constipation Street is on.

    I think it's more common now that you exit the bus beside the driver - not like the old days.

    I know what you mean.

    Imagine paying for a meal and wanting it to meet your expectations. ****ing ridiculous behaviour.

    That's very true. I might thank the driver for a good ride but I so seldom get one nowadays.

    I worked in a newsagent in Portobello for a couple of weeks as a kid. When folk used to do that the owner had a variety of catchphrases for the situation. These included:

    - Sorry sir, you appear to have taken a wrong turn. The library is actually on the other side of the road.

    - I make a living from you buying it, not standing in my way reading it.

    - You can watch the news for free, but you're going to have to pay to read it.

    - If you're checking your horoscope, it says beware short, fat, Asian men launching you onto pavements.

    These phrases were inevitably followed by something like, "now buy it or **** off".

    Old thread this (and not going to go back through reading it all just now).

    I assume the use of "lol" has already been mentioned? Irritating as ****.

    It is.

    I prefer to employ Ha Ha instead but I don't get much chance to use it I'm afraid.

    The utter rubbish that advertising and marketing people spout.

    I've just looked at a box of BelVita breakfast biscuits (decent enough biscuits but nothing special) and the first line in the wording is:"At BelVita,we're passionate about breakfast biscuits." Who in their right mind could be passionate about breakfast biscuits? And if they were they'd be mad to boast about it.

    Another one off the top of my head (almost literally) - "Your hair looks so nourished." WTF does that even mean?

    I hate when sales people are over familiar with you. i.e. "we really care about you and since it's you we'll give you a 'special' deal"
    Eh, no pal. Actually, you're trying to sell me something so you can make a living.
    FWIW, I have no problem with you getting your cut, but don't come on to me like you are my fairy bleeding godmother.

    Folk that work in shops that think its fine to rock up at 5 minutes to close in restaurants and eat a 3 course meal but have the shop doors closed at 445 and look at you like **** for coming near the place just before 5.

    This new trend of using the term "bullying" as a positive.

    Football commentators an pundits are the worst.
    " He has bullied him all over the park"
    "bullied him out the way"
    Etc.

    Companies who are happy to take your money, even taking money that they shouldn't, but will do nothing to resolve any problem that arises. McNicholl Van Hire springs to mind.

    Following on from this, commentators who constantly go on about players being unlucky when their efforts on goal are saved, eh no, the keeper is just doing his job.

    And it also gets on my thrupnies when commentaters say "He had too much time" when a player makes a erchie of an easy chance.
