Ok, I saw this discussion topic a while ago and have spent a few days pondering over what annoys me! So here is what I have come up with- this is the short list!
1: The sound of hair rubbing against something- such as someone being sat with their head leaning on a wall, moving their head around- this invokes the same reaction in me as finger nails being scraped down a blackboard.
2: Rude sales assistants. I am starting to think it is me and I must provoke extreme reactions in sales people I have never before met or spoken too. People have asked me if I know the cashiers in some shops (no) as they had caught them glaring at me! I find Morrisons is the worst culprit for sale assistants grunting at you and glaring. I cannot put my finger on it as I do not complain and I am just a normal shopper. I should really take names and complain each time but I don't like complaining!
I also had an incident in McDonalds where I went in and asked for a milkshake and the girl behind the counter glared at me and said "We don't do milkshakes". I pointed at the milkshake machine and my ex who was in there was just stood laughing saying "lets just go".
3: Hot fruit and dark chocolate. I love the crumble topping part of apple or rhubarb crumble but I cannot bear the slimy hot fruit section. I just cannot get on with Dark chocolate. I find it way too bitter. I have tried to eat it for health reasons (I read it is loads better for you than milk chocolate) but I always return to milk chocolate. Milka is my achilles heel.
4: Office politics - office jobs in particular. I was off work a few years ago for 10 weeks with severe anxiety and depression. After 7 weeks off, I tried to go back to work and I lasted three weeks before being signed off again. In the three weeks I was back at work, I was not asked if I needed any help or if there was anything the company could do as I had been off with something that could have been a result of my job. My team leader he asked specificially what medication my GP gave me (I have since been told he is not allowed by Law to do that). 95% of people in the large open plan office did not bother to ask me if I was ok. About 4 people did go out of their way to ask how I was but most people just ignored me. I have worked there for three years so I found this quite rude. It the petty emails you get from middle management- from people who get a title at work and then start acting like a dictator when you just want to tell them to get a life!
5: Procrastination and people who say they are going to do something then do not do it. I am very to the point so by the time I say "I am going to do this" then I have thought it through and made the decision and it is happening (when I mention I am going to do something it is more for your information as my mind is made up). People often do not believe me or take me seriously and this annoys me no end as I am very direct. Why would I waste my time lying about something? I'm too busy for that. So if I say "I am going to buy x", I will be on route to buy it then.
6: The culture of No Win No Fee suing. I think the whole "i'll sue you" culture needs to be abolished. I do not think you should be allowed to sue someone for example- the robber who fell on a kitchen knife in the home of the person he was robbing HE sued THEM and he WON when he had broken into their house. I think people suing the NHS should be stopped too as the NHS is strapped enough for cash. I think if there was an error, the NHS should have to correct it and give you priority care but you should not be able to sue the NHS for £500,000 because a nurse looked at you wrongly.
Well, I am going to stop there as this is going to go on and on and on! I hope you enjoyed the above and some of you agree with my points!!
Summary: Just a few of my opinions..the short list...
