Minor irritations

Quote

People who brake for speed cameras that are ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD. Gah.
I've done that a few times, it's not stupidity, it's the issue with speed cam warnings on GPS devices.

People who wear sunglasses on the tube.

Just got back from son's swimming lesson. Car park was packed and one car was straddling the last two remaining spaces. That's justifiable homicide.

top_spin, If u r very stuck for time  read first and last chapter, or if u must first and last paragraphs of specific chapters. Intros and summing ups should be all u need.
One for you?
Academics who are sarcastic and supercilious just because they've spent their lives at universities and know more than you do in one tiny area.

People in Oxford St and other touristy and hideously busy areas of London who either walk INCREDIBLY slowly or stop in the middle of the pavement or have mini cases on wheel (not gonna lie, I've kicked a fair few of them....)

The sound of people eating.

W**kers on buses, usually in small groups, listening to music without headphones - usually from cellphones. It's always the most awful gangster rap or some sh*t and everyone on the bus has to listen to it.

People who get onto a bus, tell the driver where they want to go then proceed to hold up the bus for 5 minutes while searching frantically through every section of the bag/wallet/jacket/pockets for their money. You know you're going to need your bus pass or some money to get on the bus, so have it out ready (or at least easily accessible in your pocket) while waiting at the bus stop.

Living with flatmates in a house you don't own and thus cannot make the rules yourself. From my experience since moving to Wellington, when you live in someone else's house using all their stuff (and they live there too), you just have to accept that there will always be things that are not good enough for them and you will always be blamed. Whether it's a mark on a new frying pan, or the household goes over the monthly internet bandwidth limit and gets charged more or something is cleaned with the wrong product or not to standard etc or the monthly power bill goes up a lot, it must always be entirely your fault. It's nothing to do with them leaving the pan uncleaned for 3 or 4 days (thus making it quite difficult to scrub) or them using the clothes drier all the time and leaving computers on overnight and the TV and all lights on when out for hours combined with the fact they you basically half live at your girlfriend's place and are never home more than 2 nights in a row etc.
