When you're picking your nose and you're trying to get a hard to reach bogey, then you catch your nail on the inside of your nose and it bleeds a little.

Reggae music, and stoners obsession with it.

I don't give a fark how much weed you get through, no one on earth enjoys the sound of Reggae.

There should be a like button on this forum.... Some cracking posts on this thread!

When people finish their meal and don't place the cutlery back properly on the plate.

People who leave a table and don't push the chair back in.

Bad etiquette on the golf course or people having the shirts hanging out either on the course or in the clubhouse... add jeans and trainers to that in the clubhouse too :D

Drivers in large queues of traffic and see you waiting on a side road to join it but act as if youre not there so they can save 5 seconds on their journey by not letting you in.

People riding bikes who are quite obvioulsy not cycylists and riding around either with no lights or have headphones in, in fact just generally being around me on their cheap Halfords branded bike :roll:

The locking of Thebigbee's proto classic thread and the Mod Police deciding that you can't talk about Wiggo being knocked off his bike except in pro cycling. You know who you are Nicklouse - stop it. There's a good boy. :lol:

Bits of food preparation left blocking the kitchen sink, left for me to clear out.

People who eat crisps/nuts/biscuits and/or greasy food over key boards that you have to use after.

People who use toilets and don't wash their hands before leaving, the door handle at motorway services/airports/supermarkets must be the equivalent of being radio active.

Personal stereos that are anything but personal, particularly on public transport and in particular next to me when I'm flying.

People who habitually spit.

People who habitually swear.

People who when arriving in company with others in a restaurant for instance then spend the first 15 minutes playing about with their bl00dy smart phones (it's rude) cut it out, you know who you are.

Football and "passionate" football supporters. What the hell is missing from your life that the outcome of a b!00dy game will affect your mood for the rest of the week? And why devote your life to supporting a team that's a completely different set of people every few years? It's like claiming that you only like films made by Warner or MGM. And don't bother with all that "passion and history" c@ck - that's just a large number of people who haven't figured out the previous point.

Golf, golfers, their anecdotes and their "practice swings". I'm with Mark Twain on this one, except he forgot to also call golfers a gated community of effete drunk drivers who manage to get offended by the sight of a pair of jeans on their beloved course. And God help us, are they bad at taking hints or what?
"Do you play golf?"
"No."
"Well, me and my mate were playing the other night and we'd just got to the ninth . . ."
"Is anyone going to get struck by lightning in this story? Because that's what it will take to get my interest"
And what, what in Satan's great and glorious name is the deal with practice golf swings in the office? Why? Can I claim that I play rugby, and start randomly tackling passers by?

Dogs. I don't like dogs. I won't suddenly like dogs if I meet your dog, it's a dog. I don't care if it's being friendly, you wouldn't accept that excuse if I nuzzled your crotch. I don't want to pat it, I think they're filthy animals. No I don't want to see a picture of your dog, it's a dog. That sign, one of twenty along this path that says they have to be kept on leads? That applies to your dog. "Close control" does not mean forty feet of extendable washing line. Don't hang plastic bags of their cr@p on trees or hide it under bushes, take it home with you. You've already shown that you don't aspire to human standards of hygiene by letting the dog in your house, the bags of cr@p are a logical next step. No, I have not got to agree that that's cute, it's a dog

Feel free to add your own swearing while reading it. Other rants in this series include:

  • Motorists who think they're a persecuted minority
  • Anyone who drops litter
  • People who believe everything they read in the newspapers, especially the Express and Mail. The only insight you'll get from reading the Express is how Der Sturmer would have turned out if the Nazis had subcontracted it to a pornographer

This is not a trivial matter. Litter can pose a threat to humans and wildlife and really ruin the feel of a place. People who litter are tools who should be whipped with barbed wire.

I can feel a rant coming on but will restrain myself to a few:

- people eating food from certain well-known establishments on public transport as it usually smells like dog food
- people reading/texting/blackberrying whilst walking and not looking
- people who think that they can cut across everybody else crossing the road at crossings
- wheelie bags/suitcases as they're usually piloted by cretins with a sixth sense of how to cause maximum inconvenience to everyone behind/alongside them

This. Also, teenage white kids who when they talk seem to affect that annoying accent, a sort of hybrid between Ali G and Dennis Bovell like day is from de slums of Kingston Jamaica or somtin'.

Also, on the news when a reporter or a weather girl hands back to the studio and they say thank you very much INDEED - why indeed ?

Or when the reporter faces camera with the Houses Of Parliament in the background, like this Image

across the river, then finishes their report by saying " this is Andrew Neil (or whoever), Westminster"

Er, no you're not. You're in Lambeth you div!
