Petty irritants in life that get you way more furious than is justified?

Folk ho leave their trolly in the middle of the aisle at the supermarket. I usually give a good hard shove right down the remainder of the aisle of boot it away into the person who left it or drop a few things into it. Some folk get road rage. I get supermarket rage.

Sometimes by the time I've got to the check out and it is self service only and the self service is working like an amputee child trying to make my new Nikes I just leave everything there and walk off like the bloke in Falling Down. Done that to the wife a few times which has been the closest we've ever come to ending it between us.
I enjoyed this post very much.

I quite enjoy going into Morrisons when there's two hundred people queuing up, one person on fags, one on checkout and all four self-service checkouts flashing because they're fucking useless and no cunt can get anything to scan.

When you experience some Petty but truly infuriating thing while busy at work thinking you'll remember it for later so you can post it on chb but when you finally get here you have no memory of what it was...

1) That annoying American epidemic of prefixing every adjective with ‘super’. Unfortunately it’s made it’s way over here and it super annoys the fuck out me.

2) Women that treat dogs like babies, essentially ruining them. My wife has done this with one of our dogs to a point that when she leaves the house, even for a minute, the dog wines and cries until her return. I’m almost at a point of disowning the pathetic arse, and the dog as well.

Totally agree about the super thing. A lot of the time it isn't even grammatically correct to use 'super' instead of 'very', which is what most people do now. "Dave Grohl, I love his songs, do you know he used to play the drums too? He's super talented".

You can be a supersub.
You can be a superstar.
You cannot be super cool, super awesome, super chilled, or just stick it in front of any adjective to exaggerate it.

You cannot leave Americans alone with the English language because this is what they do.

Same as if you bought a car you wouldn't put TRAIL 1 on the registration plate.

I have a load of reservations about Anthony Joshua. One good win on his resume - a shot Wlad, Parker I'll give him a pass for, though he wasn't really a powerhouse of modern boxing.

The HW division is so shit at the moment.

Michael would have cleaned the lot straight out.

Working with people that have children, for some strange reason it's really expensive to be home from work when sick but not if you have sick kids since you can be home treating sick children with no deduction from your paycheck whatsoever, somehow people with children are the healthiest motherfuckers on Earth but apparently their kids are all chronically dying...

Driving; I see someone ahead trying to make a right turn or turn left onto the road I'm on, there's enough distance between me and them so I flash my headlights at them to let them go... but the gormless fucker just sits there like a spacker staring at me. Invariably a woman. Flash them again, nothing. By this point I've slowed right down- now I either fucking stop or I have to speed back up and risk them finally going, which would mean a collision. I hate those people. Sometimes, to make it worse, they're muttering to themself as I pass, as if it was me that fucked up

You are the one who fucked up mate, like the people who stop at round about to let cars twenty meters away on, or the fuckers who stop at at cross roads at the stop sign opposite you, they’re going straight ahead, you’re turning in front of them, they have right of way but they sit and wait, waving you through, it’s confusing, it goes against what we’ve all learned. You need to travel along at a safe and legal speed, you have right of way, if they have enough room then they can make the decision on whether to go or not as it’s not your problem.

Often the level of traffic means somebody has to let someone else out, or they'll never move. People should be ready to go immediately when they get the chance- I give them the chance and they sit there with a gormless look

Best off taking a look at the drivers as you come up. Sometimes it is pretty clear they are divs so I just put one hand up and thank them for letting me through even if they've been sat waiting like tards for awhile.

Trial by social media annoys the fuck out of me, I rarely go on it but when I do there's usually some post about some petty crime that's taken place and every cunt turns into Judge Dredd

I hate thieving bastards as much as the next man but fuck me get some perspective.
