What really winds you up?

My starters:

People that tell everyone they could have been a Royal Marine because they passed selection. (Sometimes only the recruiting test!)

Motorists that turn into a side road and sound the horn at pedestrians already crossing.

People that start sentences with the word "so", followed by a word that is totally adequate without a preposition.

I've got a mate like that! I've got my Selection next weekend, since starting the process myself any conversation with him has really begun to grind my gears because he "went" to PRMC then came back and told everyone he passed but didn't go ahead, now he's a Tesco Commando.

My pet peeves are:

People complaining that their diet doesn't work and I'm "lucky to do so well" even though I turn down cakes and stick to a glass of water while they eat constantly like the sugar is running out.

Awkward gym guy who watches you in the mirrors as you lift.

Chavs on buses.

Pay and Display car park machines that don't give change - and why is it always something like £2.80? - who's got exactly £2.80?
The voice on the Self-Service checkout tills - why does it have to be so Loud?
Cyclists who wear the full 'Tour de France' Lycra kit just to go down the shops.
The 24Hr Tesco that won't serve you before 11am on a Sunday morning.
Robbie Williams.

There isn't enough time in the world to list everything that annoys me, as simply more or less everything does. But I can try;

Fat people, bad drivers, David Cameron, people who don't acknowledge you after letting them out of a junction, fat women in the gym swimming pool that wonder why they aren't losing weight by standing in the shallow end talking about the menopause with there friend Margaret, people who cycle on paths, people who walk slow, people who can't win an argument with facts so turn to insults, men that have to use weapons in fights or a group who pick a fight with one person (the days of a good old gentlemanly one on one is over), fat people, fat people who wonder why they are fat because they only have a few 'treats' occasionally, men who self tan, women that wear high heels then proceed to walk like newborn giraffes, fat women in leggings, Lorries overtaking on a dual carriageway, people who put spoilers on front wheel drive cars, people who think the measure of a good time is how many pints you can drink on a weekend, the government, people who don't respect other people, jobless scroungers, Leeds united fans, Facebook, people on twitter using 17 hash tags per tweet, fat people who ask for diet advice then don't take it, people with terrible form at the gym, personal trainers who clearly don't know what they are talking about, people who spell of with a v - 'ov', people who type using text language (hey bbz, u k? Wubu2? Luv ya), people who treat animals bad, David Cameron, footballers and the amount of money they earn, people who think nutrition is simply calories in vs calories out, lazy people, fat lazy people, fat lazy people on mobility scooters, fat lazy people on mobility scooters that claim disability because they are too fat and lazy to work..

There's just a few, I could spend hours reeling off more.

When people ask you what you want to do with your life, you say that you hope to join the Royal Marines, and they proceed to reply 'cool, semper fi and all that'.
Extortionate bus and train prices!
Junkies breathing.

People who apparently revolve during conversations. For example: "So she turned around and said..." and "You can't just turn around and say that to me..."
Did either actually turn around? Somehow I doubt it.

People who tell me that they "parked up" their car when they simply parked it.

Businesses now advertising poppy-related merchandise to cash in on the 2014 anniversary of the start of the Great War without even a penny of their profit donated to the Royal British Legion.

Things that annoy me are:
Lazy Fat gits
People with no manners
Smokers
Back stabbers
People who are shy getting their round in.
People who only speak to you when it suits them.
People who gob off, but don't know the facts of the subject matter.

People not from the North West calling me a scouser.

People who've been on the dole for years telling me there's no jobs when I'm close to having two.

People telling me there's no time for fitness when I have 4 kids and a full time job but I still find time to get something done.

People who brag about having money, as if anyone gives a toss.

People who hog gym machines to coast along while they chat to their mates rather than actually putting work in.

People that check in on Facebook, nobody cares that you'rein McDonald's!!

I'm done for now

Which reminds me that it is almost impossible to avoid TV shows about food and cooking, especially those that attempt to introduce an element of competition. “But will Janet’s artichokes, served on a bed of rice impress the judges?” Does anyone actually care?
The format has been done to death but we are still fed the same tired old tripe (no pun intended) by broadcasters determined to wring the life out of a format that actually died about two years ago.
And naturally the food is always "plated up".
