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

People who don’t like you and claim to ignore you but they always check your profile. 

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

I bloody hate it when I've settled down for the evening and I'm engrossed in my favourite TV programmes only out of the corner of my eye is someone leering in through my window watching my TV with me.

If it’s the wanking that bothers you I’ll try to be more discreet.

When someone lazily parks their used shopping trolley in the bay without bothering to put it back "in place" in line with the other trolleys. Only a problem with trolleys that don't require a quid or euro to lock/unlock but the ones at my local Asda are the most annoying.

Ah, "The Shopping Trolley Theory" is a fine indicator as to a persons moral compass.

It’s starting to bug me how the phrase “point(s) of difference” is starting to get everywhere like it’s the new buzz phrase. There was one episode of Masterchef last week where Egg Wallace and Marcus both used it, and it’s popped up several times, and the other day I heard football commentators use it re : Mendy being this years improvement for Chelsea and improved defending for Spurs. I don’t watch Michael Cole any more but it strikes me as the kind of nonsense he’d shoehorn in anywhere he could. Like “create some separation.”

Basically my minor annoyances are all due to my chronic impatience.

In the latest installment of this, today I walked 10 minutes to another shop at the other end of town as I couldn't be arsed joining the four person queue at the bakery right near my house.

When a character on a TV show is texting someone they obviously talk to all the time, like a family member or friend. It shows their phone screen and it's always the only message on there, no previous conversation. Like everyone in Albert Square immediately deletes every message as soon as they send them. Winds me up far more than it should.

I mentioned somewhere on here about the way some programmes and films do that thing where they show a live animation of texting and it deletes and corrects spelling mistakes. It was in a documentary about a woman and her kids disappearing. Ruined it for me, it did. 
Also, no fucker has the click noise when you type on their phone turned off. Only nonces do that.

This is absolutely true and rational. The only person I know with touch tones is my mother, because she can’t figure out how to turn them off.

One of my favourite parts of the shit film Don't Breathe, which is a film about some robbers stuck in a house with a psychotic blind man who has enhanced hearing, is one of the robbers texting for help from an airing cupboard - with their touch tones on. Masterful.
