1. Slow walkers on pavements
2. TV channels putting credits of shows into small boxes/ruining nice theme tunes with voiceovers
3. People who take trolleys full of items to supermarket self checkouts
4. Queue jumpers
5. Southern Railways touch screen ticket machines - one of the worst touch screens I've encountered

Oooooops I have instagram, do the bag thing unless its busy and I tend to use automatic doors instead of normal ones cos I'm lazy :|

What makes me grrrrrr

Snotty customers
Customers who take their trollies home with them then call us up to go get them o.O
Dodgy SPG in any language I know
The Smiler spending almost as much time closed as open
People who text you when you're asleep and wake you up :(
Queue Jumpers
TV Voice Overs
Keith Lemon...

You'll find it'd the scouse accent you hate, not the Liverpudlian accent, which is more softer and has a slight Irish lilt to it ;)

  • Snotty serving staff in shops/restaurants etc
  • Bus drivers
  • bad customer service
  • people who take forever to get on or off the bus
  • Old people who demand special treatment. We're all human ;)
  • Slooowww walkers!!!

Keith Lemon...

grrrrrr


So glad I'm not the only one who finds him annoying!

Where do I start?

People who think they know everything about teaching because 'they've been to school'
People who take no responsibility
Queue jumpers
Phone companies when you send your phone for repair
PPI cold callers calling you every day at all hours when you've never even brought PPI!
Customers who treat shop assistants like slaves/dirt

GRRRRRRRRRRR

I'm sure I'll think of more

Those who are prejudiced to those who don't like the bigger rides
The reversing lorry beeping noises
Fastrack
Clocks that chime every 15 minutes
Those that don't think about manners when on public transport
Realising how long it took me to realise that this topic existed
Really bad weather when you go to a theme park.
Really good weather when you go to a theme park
The way theme parks are run nowadays
People who behave badly at thorpe park
When people say brought instead of bought and vice versa

    Here's my eternal list of things that make me go GRRR!


    • Twitter posts, where there's a pic.twitter link, and you click it, and then it goes to some website, and you close the tab that's just opened, and then you realise that the link said pic.twItter or pic.twtter etc.
    • People (and what's more, companies) who don't use apostrophes where one's needed.
    • Companies who use the word 'till' instead of until. It should be 'til.
    • Old people who insist on having their lunch at 12:00 at the latest.
    • What's more, people who have their lunch before 12:00.
    • People who are in front of me in queues at a theme park. (Everyone behind me is cool.)
    • People who don't sit in the seat they're allocated to in a Vue cinema. It causes a riot when they're asked to move.
    • People who take babies/toddlers into the cinema, and they cry/fidget throughout the whole thing.
    • When YouTube ads buffer.
    • When YouTube ads play, and then the video buffers straight away and you have to refresh and watch the adverts again.
    GRRR

    (Watch this space.)

Bullying is my most hated thing, but the current thing making me go "grrrrr" is my friend flirting with someone she KNOWS I really like.  NOT COOL.  NOT COOL AT ALL.
"I'd love to stay here and be normal, but it's just so overrated..." ;)
