    People who don't take out support contracts or anything but then expect things to be supported.

    "This doesnt come with support"
    "its ok, I can do it"

    An hour later they are on the phone trying to get support for free.

    Acronyms - 'Brexit' and I think I heard the classic 'Indyref2' the other day referring to our skirt wearing cousins north of the border. WTF, just use proper English!
    Another is people on the phone whilst getting served in shops, pubs and restaurants. SO So rude.

    People that can't grasp that a cut in opening hours for an organisation means a cut in staff too, and who keep telling you how lucky you are to have all this time to do what you feel like!

    People who have 30k in their current account and then leave the slip on the top of the machine so you can see it.

    I just bought a box of Nestle milk chocolate. I don't buy it very often since I just use half a packet in a cup of coffee to make a mocha.
    When I got home, I compared it to my previous box. The previous box had eight 26g packets. The new box has six 21g packets. So the amount of chocolate powder has gone from 208g to 126g. Same price, same size box. Also, I know for a fact that the first time I started buying it there were ten packets in a box.

    How on earth can you confuse an abbreviation of initial letters with a large traveling bag?

    Personal Space, especially in a Mens sports changing room and no one else is fookin in there!

    Mind you it was a Student of Warwick Uni, clever as fook, but no common sense.

    He could see my gear/bag on the bench and decided to sit right next to it while I was showering, just because his locker was there instead of moving.
    Plus I don't wanna see his ginger arse while I'm trying to get changed.

    In French. In English it's pronounced Paris. Just like in English the correct pronunciation is still halapeeno

    The blame culture which appears to be rife in U.K. society! It's his fault, it's her fault, they didn't do this, he didn't do that....

    Take responsibility for your own actions!

    Dog walkers who let their dogs randomly jump up on strangers. Then they approach you smiling like we all want random dogs dirtying our clothes, it's such fun. I don't want to have muddy paw marks on my clean trousers, ta very much. Shall I smile as I pass you a dry cleaning bill? A simple apology would surfice but rarely offered.

    My dog does that. She is a puppy though and I do always apologize.

    My apologies are never greeted with anything other than a grunt or sneer though.

    Trouble is I can't say to them in a Basil Fawlty style rant "Are you blind by any chance?" "Should I have made the text bigger so your awkwardness about wearing glasses or contact lenses isn't shown up by your inability to read?"
