When people position their TV facing the living room window. 

I'm in the opposite position, in that my TV is directly under my living room window, facing away from it. But my window looks out on to a walkway to my neighbour's flat, and she spends half the day stood out there having a fag and either watching videos on her phone or playing mobile games with the sound on. So she's annoying enough anyway, but then it's just made awkward by the fact that her or anyone going into her flat just gets a clear view of me seemingly staring right at them.

Articles that are formatted like fake Q and As What are they then when their at home? They're annoying little articles that attempt to explain something new to , like an iPod or something written

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

A woman in work a couple of weeks ago complained that her fucking bog standard floppy ass bank statement/phone bill/dog shelter letter was folded when posted through her tiny postcard sized post box.

The new sofa's faulty and needs to be sent back. I found this out after already getting it up a flight of stairs. They'll come and collect it before Xmas, but they can't deliver a replacement until after, and the old sofa's already gone to the tip.

All minor problems, all sortable, but I'd be lying if I said I hadn't considered just setting everything on fire as a potential solution.

I've caught a few episodes of Richard Osman's House of Games over the last few weeks and THE WAY HE PRESSES HIS BUZZER IS INFURIATING!! You're 8 feet tall press it properly for f***s' sake!

A woman in work a couple of weeks ago complained that her fucking bog standard floppy ass bank statement/phone bill/dog shelter letter was folded when posted through her tiny postcard sized post box. She beckoned me over with her finger and pointed to an essay on her door that amounted to “Do not bend Mail”.  

I get petty complaints all the time but the thing that’s bothered me most is that her letters are already twatting folded inside the envelope! She also told me she used to deliver papers so she knows how easy it is to post things carefully. I assume they were the worlds tiniest newspapers as she can’t be folding things now can she! I’m thinking about baiting her in to an argument so I can raise these two points. That or making stamp addressed origami and paper airplanes with the words “DO NOT BEND” written inside them and sending them her when the other postie is on the round.

Maybe not so ‘minor’ on the annoyance scale.

Welcome to hell, Knievel.
Your resentment is just going to grow and grow, until even the way her mouth purses as she sups from a cup of tea will give you an eye twitch.

@Mr_Danger Fight pettiness with pettiness but within rules of your job.

Tape her letters to the letterbox or tape one side to the outer edge and post half through tearing shit up as she pulls it through. Bang the door/letterbox and scurry off every so often. Leave a sorry we couldn't deliver card citing the letter/package too big to post making her have to travel to get her shit. Take a photo her door/letterbox as proof so you're covered.

Alternatively just tell them to fuck off.

She’ll happily travel 5 miles to our office to pick up an a4 sized Dogs Trust promotional letter. She’s weird but you’ve got to admire that commitment. I did card her for a letter and she came and found me so I sent her to the van to wait 20 minutes in the rain when I already had the letter on me.

I’m contemplating taking the round on permanently when the opportunity to do so will come up later this year just to dedicate myself to shithousing her. It’s probably the second worst round in the office.

I like how everyone's got a "woman at work" story. There's always one, isn't there? The one at my work causes minor annoyance by getting sayings wrong. Today's slip-up came when she was being overly dramatic and trying to express how nervous she was during some non-event or other that probably didn't really even happen in the first place. "My heart was in my chest", she said, two times within as many sentences. Isn't that where your heart usually is?

I know it’s as minor as it gets but over the last couple of years a lot of people seem to have started using “optics” as a synonym for visuals/appearance and it just sounds a bit wrong to me. In the workplace especially, feels like a word people are throwing out to sound smarter. Although it pales in comparison to the number of morons I encounter using “revert” in an email because they think it means “reply.” It doesn’t.
