50 Things that Annoy Me

Today in the news they were talking about a list that has been released of the Top 50 Things that Annoy People. This got me thinking and so I thought I would list a few things that annoy me. So here is the list. Add your things in the comment section. (I also am aware that these are first world problems so you probably don’t need to point that out).

  1. Call Centre operators who can’t speak proper English
  2. Banks with 10 teller spots and only 2 tellers in operation and a queue of 15 people.
  3. People telling me I am being judgmental – because they are being judgmental by telling me that, ignorant in not knowing they are being judgemental and hypocritical by the very act.
  4. The behavior of the Politicians in Question Time
  5. The short term memory of the electorate
  6. The short term memory of the media
  7. The relative value of western lives compared to African and Asian lives in the media’s reporting of accidents and disasters
  8. Reality TV
  9. People that flash their lights at you when you are driving – to get you to turn your high beam down – but they are already down.
  10.  People who complain about how poor they are
  11.  People who complain about our medical system
  12.  People with bad breath
  13.  Individually directed public posts on facebook – like “I am over all your lies – you know who you are”. Sorry but I don’t know who they are and intelligent people know about Direct Messaging.
  14.  Anonymous hate posts on blog comments. If you want to share you vile, vomit of an opinion – have the guts to put your name to it.
  15.  Pictures of cats on Facebook. They should be banned and they have no place in a public forum
  16.  8 cents discrepancy in petrol prices between two servos 300 metres apart and I have just used the dearer one.
  17.  One Direction
  18.  Beiber fever
  19.  Daytime Television
  20. Simpson repeats for the 10th time
  21.  Dollar coins – bring back the dollar note.
  22.  Parking in Sydney and not having coins to put into a coin only parking meter. Its 2013 Sydney Council – time to get eftpos.
  23.  Being declined in a shop because my account has no money left in it.
  24.  People who get way too intense on Facebook particularly commenting on a post that I am clearly not being serious in.
  25.  Facebook friend requests from people in India or Africa that carry the title Apostle – I know that I am going to be bombarded with requests for money dressed up with a lot of Christian jargon.
  26.  People who think I am joking about being President of Australia. I will remember who you are.
  27.  The Dallas Cowboys
  28.  People who say coupon with a Q
  29.  Aliens
  30.  Coke Zero – I mean really?
  31.  Jetstar and Qantas who think that Coke Zero is an ok substitute for Diet Coke. Its not.
  32.  The cost of Parking at Sydney Airport.
  33.  50 Shades of any colour
  34.  Tosh.O
  35.  Long Good byes on the phone. Ok see ya. Bye. Yeah talk to you later. Bye. Just hang up already.
  36.  Hiring a DVD and you are most of the way through and then it jumps and skips and you cant watch the end
  37.  Getting a coke out of a fridge in a servo and realizing that the ones on the shelf in the middle of the store are colder.
  38.  Wives that never ever answer their phones. Ok its not plural here. Let me be more specific. Melanie never answers her phone.
  39.  Phone systems that start off by saying Press one to do this and two to do that. Wish there was a number that said Press 8 to go to our competitors who actually do care about you.
  40.  Disgusting Service Station restrooms
  41.  Running out of tea bags and not realizing until you go to make that first cuppa in the morning.
  42.  Horoscopes
  43.  Poker Machines
  44.  Any conversation that starts with “I don’t mean to be offensive but..”
  45.  Booking into the Doctor or Dentist for the first appointment of the day – and still having to wait for 25 minutes. I mean I AM THE FIRST APPOINTMENT FOR THE DAY – HOW CAN YOU BE LATE ALREADY?
  46.  Blogs that say there is a list of 50 things and then the list only goes up to 49.
  47. Graphic Horror DVD covers being displayed at the height of children’s eyes at Blockbuster Video
  48. People who overshare on Social Media.
  49. Running late.

So what things annoy you?
