    I'm sure there's a reason for it but packaging that has 'for best before see.....'

    Or you could have just printed it here.
    It may not always be the case, but in some instances it's because the language on the packaging will change but the date stamp stays the same.

    TV Adverts for upcoming programs. Every break for 6 weeks before the program starts. Then every break with a "continue watching " tag once it's broadcast. E4's Holden Girls being the current worst. Side peeve, if it's not a mocumentary then we have jumped the shark based on these ads.

    Neighbours (especially those in apartments) who start DIY projects without giving you a heads up.

    Kevin Nisbet....signed for us July 2020, rumours/talk about him from the previous January transfer window. Mentioned many hundreds of times on here and elsewhere and people STILL can't make the effort to spell his name properly.

    Any photographers amongst us? what's your views on some of the poetic, arty, plain gobbledegook text that accompanies photos on FB, Instagram etc?
    For me its utter pretentious nonsense which only serves to detract from the photo.

    Dog poo. Just been downstairs to get a cup of coffee but hadnít noticed that my girlfriend had stood in dog poo on her morning walk (she hadnít realised) and dragged all through the house. I didnít initially notice it (as we have brown wood flooring) and I was in my bare feet. Just had to wash my feet and now my coffee is cold!

    Orders that never turn up. My infrared sensor on my smart TV was broken so I ordered a new sensor. My TV has been lying on my workbench in the cellar for 6 weeks now and after several emails to the company where I placed and paid for the order, I've just been told they don't have the spare part to deliver it. ****ing fuming.

    Shop staff who tell you they donít have a particular product and have never stocked it, this is then backed up by a supervisor who tells you they have never stocked it. Adamant that I have seen it on their shelves previously I look myself one more time and find the empty space on the shelving complete with shelf edge ticket, they do sell it!!!!!!

    You should have just washed your feet with water instead.

    Lazy staff backed up by incompetent management been going on as long as I can remember. Take them to where it should be and they'll shrug their shoulders muttering something to try and baffle you with their superior knowledge of the art of not filling shelves.

    Greedy petrol stations, unfortunately my mk4 golf has to use super unleaded, went to put fuel in and the garage wanted £1.57 a litre, sane petrol at Craigleith is £1.38.

    I've probably said it before, but posters using pejorative nicknames for people they're posting about (usually politicians on the Holy Ground).

    Irrespective of the actual politics, it makes me stop reading their post instantly. At best it's immature; at worst it's trolling, "look at me" type behaviour that makes me think the post won't contain anything objective or insightful.

    I wouldn't mind as much if the nicknames were somewhat witty. Wee Nippy, Bozo etc is just chronic though.

    I once took Hibbyradge to task over this and he said that he trusted the views of .netters far more than random websites

    I was thinking more of the official website for places that were being asked about. 🤔👍

    Towels - Went into the bathroom earlier to find 6 different towels lying either on the floor or in the bath, aye they're gonna dry there right enough! Thank goodness my oldest daughter has just moved out otherwise there would have been about 10 of them.

    My wife and I solved the problem by having 2 bathrooms, a boy one and a girl one. Cleaned on a Monday morning top to bottom and I am always finished first, 30 minutes tops 😁

    The downside to only having one bathroom. Apparently women are supposed to be tidier than men, well certainly not in my household.

    Extremely diplomatic that you've classed this peeve as "towels" when you actually mean "my wife".

    My daughters eventually learned when, instead of hanging their towels for them, I told them to do it themselves straight away. Being woken a couple of times at 6.45am during the summer holidays (but when I got up to take my shower to go to work) soon sorted them out.
