Posted:I was replying to another thread and one of my pet hates came up (lip balms). Just wondered if anyone else had any wierd pet hates / compulsive things they do?

Mine are:-
Twisted coil phone cord.
I have, and mean HAVE to untwist any phone cord that gets all twisted around itself. Not sure why.

Lip balm:-
Too addictive and horrible to kiss

Posted:It took him a while to die, Dr. Klamut said. She must have stabbed him 40 to 80 times with that iPod. His death was not instantaneous, thats for sure

I hope the ipod is ok.

Posted:yep, unfortunately that's how it is, yesterday i went into one of the cool shops in town, saw some poi. They didn't have 'em or even know what i was after when i went in 18 months ago!



ahh well, don't worry, trendy ppl haven't the patience for poi, but if i keep talking i will end up in some sort of philosphical conundrum about people who are just spinenrs waiting to happen, eek!



pet hate of the moment:

when you go for a pooh, and half way though wiping when you're all 'ah, finished' a little bit more pooh comes along. ARRRRRGH and then you have to wipe all over again! frown

Posted:Speaking of iPods I detest the people (mainly kids) walking or standing around with the iPod in hand - not actually changing the song but just holding it in their hand to show off.

They're just asking to be mugged...

Posted:I hate it when you're out walking your mutt and its got the squits, even with a poo-bag, you cant pick it up as it's all watery. and every few yards the doggy stops, sqats, and squits. Watery.
And people just stare at you and mutter what a horrible dog owner you are. frown

BTW-this happened yesterday as i was rescuing a poor dog and taking it to the vets, update-its owners were found this morning biggrin

Posted:Managers or Supervisors who ask you 'Would you mind doing this for us please?' in a manner that suggests that you even have a choice of saying 'no' without consequences.

What really gets me is when they apologise for giving me a job to do as if I am unwilling or previously incapable of doing the job they are paying me for.

I know they're only being polite but there are times when I wish they would just cut to the s**t and just say 'do that please!'

Poor spelling and punctuation. If you want us to read your post, at least make it intelligible. It doesn't HAVE to be perfect, but at least recognisable as English.



The driving equivalent of not using punctuation - not using indicators.

Posted:bmw drivers! I'm sure there are some considerate and defensive 5-series drivers out there but a lot of them don't half make me swear.

I think it was mentioned near the beginning but people in busy shopping centres or high streets that stop dead in front of you for no apparent reason angry

another one that's already been mentioned, bad manners and rudeness. I was brought up with 'please and thankyou cost nothing and hurt no-one'.

Idiotic lawsuits brought against companies that have ended up in things like warning notices on bags of peanuts that say 'This product contains nuts'

I don't know, there's a certain way that some people talk which really gets to me. Where did all these silly words/phrases come from anyway?!
