Re: Pet hates - what are yours?

People whose driving fails to meet the basic standard set in the Highway Code - who then get upset when you flash them or sound your horn because they now pose a danger - such as pulling out under your nose & driving along at 20mph when you're on NSL roads & have had to seriously brake from the 55 - 60mph you were doing

Ooh I'd forgotten about them...everyone has been in the situation where pulling out onto a busy fast moving road, you end up going for that half a gap after sitting waiting for a chance for 5 minutes. But if you're going to at least have the decency to get up to speed quickly so you don't end up stacking everyone up.

Re: Pet hates - what are yours?

And then there's the opposite, you wait to pull out - you see a gap but you can see that gap actively closing...
You eventually get a huge gap, pull out & break your own record for doing 0-60 - but the dozy tawt you pulled out on has finally managed to catch you up (took him 5 minutes) by breaking every speed limit - he now wants to hug your rrse & make gestures because you have just cut him up or ruined his braking distance "only a fool breaks the 2 minute rule" - completely forgetting that, by hugging your rrse, he doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of stopping.

Re: Pet hates - what are yours?

So many bad driving habits, so I'm not going to put myself through any specifics & get myself all annoyed at this time in the morning.. For me, some of the pet hates regarding the English language is the way it's delivered/sounds. It's a toss up between upward speak or vocal fry, highly annoying to say the least. Listen to the American female of a certain age & the raspy speaking style just sends me up the wall.

I'm at the old grumpy/cynical stage & laugh at myself for the very fact it tends to be all the silly things in life that drives me bananas. To quote Billy Connolly...I've turned into the man that I used to try and avoid....

Re: Pet hates - what are yours?

Does people saying "can I get" in shops when they mean can I have, please, do your head in? It really infuriates me. Poor little snowflakes don't know any better though. A bad American import.

Brought when they mean bought.

'Like' scattered within every sentence. Why don't you tell me what it actually is, rather than alluding to something similar?

Re: Pet hates - what are yours?

As a care worker I'm out & about in the community & come across all types of people, good bad & indifferent just about sums things up these days. You just never know who you're going to come across. The English language is evolving/changing all the time I read & perhaps there are times I just despair, take for instance when I'm out with a client in a wheelchair helping him with his shopping in a certain small supermarket coming across several small primary school boys on their lunch break causing havoc & coming out with....."yo bro! wats your problem man?!!! when I ask, mind the wheelchair boys. "Dude chill! is the reply.

No big deal & not the end of the world, but in so many levels this is a bit sad & wrong.

Re: Pet hates - what are yours?

1 of my pet hates? Being overtaken: if I know the road, I travel at the speed limit. It seriously annoys me when people flout the speed limits, and overtake me. Quite frankly, it's utterly moronic: speed limits are there for a reason. It's especially annoying if they overtake me only to a) stay directly in front of me, or b) turn off about a minute later. 😠

Something else that infuriates me is when a moron overtakes me just before a speed limit increase: I know I'm only driving an old Fiat, but it will only take me a few seconds to get from 30-60mph, and I'll be able to do 50-60 round most of the bends!! 😠

Oh god yes.

My job involves a lot of client contact coupled with law type stuff, so you can imagine what I have.
