Things you absolutely hate by raistlin (Page 1 of 2)

This is meant to be light-hearted and tongue in cheek :)

So, what do you really hate?

Top of my list at the moment is being asked to peel the foil from a Creme Egg which has become stuck to the surface of the egg with sticky gooey sugar residue.

Somewhat later than I'd thought Paul, ... but no less predictable ;)

Contact centres, poor customer service, extortionate parking charges, high utility bills, trying to do something simple and straightforward on a PC and it becomes anything but, mobile phones, going to Pride of Longbridge to find that the 75s/ZTs are parked in 3 different places mainly due to the politics at the top of the various groups, arranging 75/ZT meets to deliberately clash with other groups to the detriment of owners, the choice on TV (57 channels and nothing on ) , poorly kept beer in pubs, the growing gap between the haves and have nots in the UK, inconsiderate drivers, Jeremy Clarkson, enough for now ......

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

When somebody doesn’t know how doors work. Car doors. Front passenger car doors. And then, every time, close it so hesitantly (as if expecting the worst and with those ridiculous pursed lips and expectantly raised eyebrows) it fails to strike fully. So they have another go, exhibiting such massive amounts of energy nPower would be jealous, causing such a depression in the cabin (atmospheric pressure - not my mood) air scrambles for a merciful exit. So severe, the radio unerringly changes channels from Classic FM to Rap Radio Rotherhithe.
Then come the recriminations. The Apportionment of Blame rigmarole.

Somebody: You said you’d fix that.
Me: Just because we’ve been married 50 years doesn’t mean you’ve got the
job you know. Not ’till you get the indentures signed and returned is is the apprenticeship over.
Somebody: Oi! FBS*. Don’t push your luck.

I hate all that..

The Co-op convenience stores have all of their bitter in fridges. Bottles of beer and cans, all in the fridge, complained to the staff in the Bunbury shop, orders from head office Guv !

No wonder they are losing hundreds of millions of pounds, genuine beer drinkers are avoiding them like the plague.

Mike, there's always a solution. ;)
Why don't you put it into the microwave? It's as easy as that! :stirer:

Treading on that lost drawing pin in your bare feet after putting up a birthday/xmas decorations, missing that little bit of foil from the cream egg and sending a shock through your fillings, of which you will have many if you keep eating those cream eggs :lol:

Over-use of pixellation and/or blurring on TV.

I'm not talking about anything dodgy (!) rather things like Coca-Cola logos, telephone numbers on the side of a truck in a US documentary such as "Ice Road Truckers", number plates etc. There's no need for it - we all recognise the logos even when they are fuzzy (and seeing them is not going to make me want to buy things anyway), we're never going to phone U-Haul (and even if we were, we'd find the number ourselves), and hopefully the vast majority of us aren't going to stalk someone or clone their car because we've seen it on TV (and if we were, we'd be able to find the numbers just by driving around)

It's even got to the point where paintings on the wall of a house in a documentary are being fuzzed!

I hate it when check-out staff try and strike up a conversation, especially when I have already heard the same from the customer in front. I just want to pay and get out fast. I understand that they are trying to be friendly, but they could at least be taught how to judge whether a customer wants to chat or not!

BTW; I really like chilled beer :-D :cheers:

Child proof containers that with the absence of a child and with arthritic fingers are impossible to open.
In fact packaging generally. :twisted:
