Re: Those little annoying things....

People who complain about people in middle lane who are sitting at the maximum speed permitted and cannot legally be overtaken!

Yes... Grrrrrrrr
In Aberdeen they are very clearly marked the times they are operational, but folk still queue in the right lane with the left lane clear but not a bus lane at that time, I have avoided mega queues by simply using the "left" lane because its not a bus lane at that time but folk sheepishly follow each other in the right lane.

This is one of my pet hates. I often keep repeating the dryer until someone else opens the door so that I can slip out without touching the handle.

I guess that when you are out on the rig for weeks at a time you have to make your own entertainment.........

Re: Those little annoying things....

AND another peeve, I've been buying "non reflective perspex" for my picture frames, just as good as glass but not breakable except it has a shiny side and a coated side, so I've just realised, but try to tell the difference until you hang the picture......grrrrr

and why can't Americans use English spelling and drive on the left???
In fact why doesn't Europe drive on the left... and speak English natively, things would be so simple if people were more like us.

What if the fire (or the gunman ) was in the foyer and people were trying to escape through the rear of the cinema? The doors should swing both ways.

As soon as I find a product at Morrisons that I really like, they don't stock it any more. I wish they wouldn't do that.

Yes, why can't all photographers use Four Thirds cameras?

Yes, Tesco do that too. It's even more annoying when you ask the staff about it and they claim never to have stocked the product. Grrrrrr
