Things that piss you off that shouldn't


Recommended Posts

The solution to the holidays issue is obvious:   I'll work during the holidays when school's out and you take the time off and take my kids with you on your vacation.   Everyone wins!

Working from home has only heightened the problem with partners naming people you have no interest in or recollection of.

We’ve sort of come to an agreement, that I’m happy to be told all about what Tina said to Mandy about Kevin in HR, on the understanding that I don’t actually have to listen and will never be asked to repeat any of it back, or ask after a health update on Greg’s mum.

I just have to wait until it sounds like the bulletin is over, and make a noise to acknowledge that I received that bulletin.

By the same token, I am at liberty to explain the recording techniques in mid 70’s Jamaican dub whenever I feel the need. I make it clear when I’ve finished my monologue by always ending with ‘...and I can burn you a copy, if you like?’

There was a meme going round not so long ago that sums it up that says 

"My boyfriend is the perfect person to gossip with about people from work because he doesn't know who any of them are and he wasn't listening anyway"

OK this complaint is in itself worthy of pissing people off, as somebody boringly does it every year, but... 

Saw my first Christmas stuff in Morrisons today.

People who are sitting on public transport playing games, videos or listening to music or taking calls, without headphones connected. I am not a violent man, but sweet jesus. 

Usually the yoof of today. A right good clip round the back of the head would do wonders.

People listening to music in public out loud in is undeniably annoying, particularly while commuting. However once last summer I was walking down the road and two young lads were heading towards me, one with his music blaring from his pocket, no headphones. 

As we got to within 10-15 yards of each other he, unprompted, turns it down while we pass. I then heard the volume go back up after a few more paces. 

Sometimes the little considerate gestures stick with you longer than the thoughtlessness of others.

There's a pair of trainers I like the look of and check to see pics of how they look with jeans on but they only have the model wearing turn ups and no socks ffs.  I'm never going to go out looking like that so no help whatsoever.
