Small or random things that annoy you

Mon May 23, 2011 11:30 pm

Was thinking about this earlier while in Costa Coffee. Why do baristas or waiters/waitresses always ask if there's "anything else?" when you have given your order and finished with "that is all, thank you"?

Ugh, really gets on my nerves.

When till attendants say 'just' before the price, when it is anything but cheap.

That's just £1.90 please. Yeah, for bottle of mineral water? Cheers...

"is there anything else I can get you?"

"Would you like any thing else with that?"

"Do you have a *insert name here* card with you? No? Would you be interested in one sir?"

Those are the three most common lines I hate in stores/bars/cafes etc.. I came in here to get what I want, I don't want anything more and I'm not interested in any damn bloody cards! The staff hate saying it as much as we hate listening to it from what I've seen, you can tell they get fed up of it when you've got some miserable cow that sounds like a robot serving you at a till.

someone leaning on my lowered window, missing the BIG sign saying 'WARNING THIS VEHICLE IS 2.8m HIGH' and saying "Is this over 2 metres in hight?"

At work we are meant to say "can I help you with anything else?" or something similar when we have shown a customer where something is or helped them, most of the time they say no.

There are many little things that annoy me when im driving, one of the biggest is people who don't use their indicators! e.g they suddenly turn or they pull out without showing where they are going!

The people in Comet and Currys who try and flog you 'gold plated' and much more expensive HDMI cables, with a new TV.

For one, because it's a digital signal you wont get a better picture quality, and 2, they are only gold plated on the ends and have a copper wire in the middle, so if you did get a better digital picture from gold plated cables (which you dont) it will all be lost anyway due to the copper cable in the middle.

Putting together flat pack bedroom furniture annoys me. I'm slightly going out of my mind, decided to have a break. I realise it's designed to be as easy as possible, I'm just a bit of a useless fool when it comes to anything slightly hands on...

My BIL is getting a new TV and ordered him a humax freesat HD recorder on their website they have cables for £19 go on ebay and get one for about £4. Much better price!

Nail varnish/polish/paint makes me physically sick I can't eat or drink or do anything if I see it. That and buttons on clothing. Just saying the word makes me shudder.

If your socks are crusty and hard I would be very worried. I am sure you have all heard the issues with wafty cranking.

Yeah that really gets on my nerves.
The noises people make when they eat, sometimes it gets me really frustrated and annoyed, especially when people do that stupid thing when they suck their fingers and make a lipsmacking noise when it's completely unnecessary and possible to do it without making a noise at all. GRRRR. I guarantee some of you here do it. Well if you're ever eating around me, you better not, otherwise I'll stare at you very angrily and not do anything about it! :cry:

Lol Becky, and Ollie, that really irritates me, too.

The thing that annoys me ATM is when people use poor grammar or txt sp3/|k in an attempt to look cool. It actually has the complete opposite effect and makes that person look stupid.
