Minor Annoyances (Vol 2)

People/groups of people taking up all the space and walking very slowly in narrow corridors, supermarket aisles or staircases. Annoying 

I have a version of this, which is pavements. People who walk two abreast, see you coming the other way, but then put their head down and don't move over, forcing you into the road. I even have one of these when I'm walking with a mate, see people coming toward us and know there's not enough space, so I drop back to go single file, only for my mate to stop because I've slowed down. You might be a mate, but look around you, fuffuxake.

Getting the Countdown Conundrum or a 9 letter word when no one is there to see it.

People overtaking me on a footpath at 1.0001x my own speed, making no effort to put some distance between us as we stroll shoulder to shoulder for yards upon yards. Also, perfectly functional thr

Currys thinking “Black Fri-Yay” is an acceptable slogan with which to market to adults.

Because this happened to me this morning and I got stuck behind someone, people who use the self-service checkouts in supermarkets and shops, yet end up calling a member of staff over to help them because they don't know what they're doing or have made a mistake and don't know how to correct it.  Ends up taking you twice as long as it should have when the whole premise of self-service is to speed things up.

A minor annoyance of mine is people who refuse to use self service checkouts because it’s doing people out of jobs, or object to the automising of society etc and then go and get some cash from the ATM.

I like anyone who refuses to use a self serve for any reason, because it means longer lines on the proper tills and shorter ones for me. When they were first introduced it was brilliant because no-one used them. Nowadays scan while you shop is where its at for a checkout method that scares people away from using it.

Wait, there are physical banks with people working in them?

Jokes aside, my nearest bank is in another city and it's proper tucked away.

Not to mention all the free cheese you can fake scan through them.

Scan while you shop is great, except my experience is that you never quite manage to check out and pay when you SHOULD be able to, because my rate for getting chosen for a “quality check” by a staffer is very close to 1 in 1.

At a petrol station when people who don't realise or are scared to drag the fuel nozzle to the other side of their car where their petrol cap is.

Hint, the pipe is long enough.

As mentioned on here before, I always sing “No Scrubs” by TLC when pulling onto the forecourt to remind myself where my fuel cap is located.

Too many Partridge jokes for one thread.

I had a Pot Noodle for the first time in ages today. I very much enjoyed it but is there any way of eating without ending up with the sauce on your chin? It reminded me why I don't eat them very often. Do I just not know how to eat?!

Yes. Either put the water to the lowest line, so its drier rather than wet. Also sit the lid on for a good 5 minutes for more dryness. 

Or do what I've been doing lately, have it wetter and just whack it all in sandwiches. Living the dream.

My husband did give me a slice of bread to have it with today which was a first for me and I was quite impressed, it worked well in soaking up some of the juice @SuperBacon. It left me wondering what a Pot Noodle would be like on toast. Thank you, I will try a bit less water next time.
