Minor Annoyances

by Steve

  1. A road closure accompanied by a CYCLISTS DISMOUNT sign that is misread by most cyclists as CYCLISTS MOUNT THE PAVEMENT AND RIDE AT GREAT SPEED.
  2. A coffee machine that used to pour too much coffee so that it spilt out of the mug that has been recalibrated so that it now doesn’t pour anywhere near enough coffee.
  3. People on hands-free who are holding either their phone or the hands-free kit when taking a call.
  4. Office laughter.
  5. My neighbours’ house alarm that is set to beep every time they go through their front door.
  6. My neighbours going in and out of their front door, and thus setting off the beep, all the time.
  7. Any sort of email marked urgent.
  8. Facebook.
  9. Complaining about Facebook.
  10. Not complaining about Facebook.
  11. People sitting in an aisle seat on the train when the window seat is free, who then refuse to move when you say “Excuse me” and try to sit in the empty seat.
  12. People sitting in an aisle seat on the train when the window seat is free, who then refuse to move when you say “Excuse me” and try to sit in the empty seat, who then glare at you when you inadvertently knock into them as you try to squeeze past.
  13. People sitting in an aisle seat on the train when the window seat is free, who then refuse to move when you say “Excuse me” and try to sit in the empty seat, who then glare at you when you inadvertently knock into them as you try to squeeze past, and then sit on the train for the entire journey so you wonder why they needed the aisle seat in the first place as they didn’t need to make a quick and easy exit and then they pin you in your window seat despite the rest of the carriage freeing up, so it can’t be that they don’t like feeling penned in, as the two of you are now squeezed together in an otherwise empty carriage.
  14. People who feel the cold yet sit by the air-conditioning.
  15. People who are always hot who sit by the radiators.
  16. People who define themselves by their temperature.
  17. People who get annoyed by minor things.
  18. List posts.
