Fvcking phone zombies! You go out of your way to dart out of the way of some oncoming freak, staring at the screen, only to put yourself in harm's way. Either a fat bird or a car, or some such.

People who listen to loud techno/dance music at 8am on their way to work with tiny little ear-buds, which effectively subjects the entire train, before anyone has even had time to have a coffee, to shitty drum beats coming out of tiny, muffled, scratchy speakers for the entire trip.

Gallant guy standing at the end of the tram tonight, like me, had plenty going for him. Apart for the fact he snorted his snot back into his cranium every five seconds. Fvck I wanted to murder him with my bare hands after five minutes.

People walking four to a footpath when you're on your own walking the other way.

And it somehow being societally unacceptable to give one of them the hard shoulder.

Had a close call after a ropey kebab in Verbier last week when I found myself down the high street with a 30 second warning that I was going to have 'an accident', there was zero chance of getting back to the hotel or even the nearest bar so had to dash into some bushes behind a carpark and curl one out, no mean feat in -12 temperatures. I feel slight guilt that said turd will not melt away until spring now. :blush:

3 movie ones.

It drives my missus to distraction when someone is walking with a suitcase or other luggage which is clearly empty (unless it is supposed to be). Although to be honest in the past I never really noticed that one now it makes me chortle when I notice as I know I will hear a very muffled screech a moment later.

This line (or similar) - 'I don't believe in vampires, I'm a scientist'! No, you are not a fking scientist, you're a superstitious fking cretin. That line would make sense in the real world where vampires (or whatever do not exist) but in your fictional world where vampires have existed for centuries and there is good documented evidence the scientific position would be to hypothesize that vampires do exist and start conducting research into their existence.

Thirdly, criminal goons who sacrifice themselves to fulfill their bosses idiotic orders. In the real world, a lot of criminals will turn on their associates if it is a choice been life and death (or 2 years in prison) so if you boss has told you to 'get'im', you might initially be inclined to fire off a few rounds, but when it becomes apparent that the indestructible super-cyborg/alien hero/Van Norris creature can kill 50 men with consummate ease (demonstrated by him killing 50 of your associates with consummate ease in the previous 3 minutes) you're going to run away.

Wondering why your running gear still stinks a few days after running in fvcking hot Melbourne temperatures, until you realise your Canadian mrs runs everything on cold wash.

It. Does. Not. f**king. Work. Here.

Not pleasant at all. I was running a half marathon last week when a lanky bloke up ahead shot off to the side and proceeded to squat down and grow a tail for all to see. Not pleasant at all.

Over fussy over zealous women at the self scan checkouts in Morrisons. They stand around trying to look busy, and most of the time that involves pouncing on you and telling you the f**king obvious.

Nope. I deliberately hold my line and hope they bump into me. I've had a few close glances as they realise my presence at the last second, but I'm hoping someone walks straight into me and drops his/her phone.


My newly found pet peeve are arrogant cyclist cnuts who put themselves and others at risk. We had a two massive dumps of snow recently and as it's so rare, the city doesn't have enough equipment to deal with it. I saw several out, riding on the slippery roads because the bike lanes were worse and a couple who had no lights and wearing dark clothes when it was approaching dusk.

Also, the rare drivers who are over-confident of their abilities / vehicle's traction and go way too fast for the conditions. Lastly, drivers who feel that 'gunning it' is the best way to deal with slipperiness, making the surface underneath icier. :?

Can I interest you in the TV Tropes website? It's full of examples of this stuff.

When you're shopping at the supermarket & require an item - but some old bint is looking at the same thing & blocking access to it with her trolley. No problem, you think to yourself - I'll come back after I've got the milk.....5 minutes later she's still there reading the back of the packet. Ok - a bit annoying - I'll come back after I've done a bit more shopping.......5 mins later go back for the item & someone else has assumed her position

Why would you get out of their way? A solid "accidental" shoulder to the face usually works.

You're a driver, nervously dealing with ice on the roads - it was a bit of a flash situation, so no plows, no salt, hitting the brakes too hard could put you in a spin - and up ahead is someone going 1/3 your speed on a bicycle forcing you to negotiate those slippery conditions and everyone everyone else around you to pass this person who shouldn't even be on the road. It's the arrogance of it all that annoyed me, and though I'm a regular cyclist there are too many who feel they're the most important person on the road regardless of the situation.

I also imagined the cyclist having an accident in the middle of the road, and a car not being able to stop quickly enough, plowing into him while he's sprawled on the ground. Buses were running and they have bike carrier racks. Lots of people were walking. No need to be out cycling.

Not so much a pet peeve (it did annoy me) but probably something more shocking is that I seen a woman pushing herself along by the wheels on her wheelchair on the road. I can understand motorised scooters being on the road at a stretch but this was fairly odd, considering she was right beside the footpath
