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

There is absolutely no justification for the price of a cup of tea. It's a teabag and some hot water. Maybe a tiny bit of milk.

I know there will be overheads to cover, but the profit margin on a cup of tea must be huge.
That's me on the way to work every morning. I don't know why I do it but I spend a shit tonne on coffee every morning at the tube station. Its also partly out of laziness

Coffee isn't quite as bad, there is some expense to it.

My Mrs will buy coffee if we need to get a train. Occasionally drags me into a costa or what gave you as well. I usually end up paying a fiver for a bottle of water and a biscuit because I don't like coffee.

People who spend £4/5 on a cup of coffee or tea at somewhere like Costa. I did it once outside Wembley Stadium as I was bullied into it by ex-missus Trail. Got a couple of slices of toast too. Best part of £15. Fuck that shit, never again.
I like my coffee used to get a cup wherever I could each time I was going somewhere, not normally anything fancy but even instant coffee from a machine is way overpriced in any given kiosk and it all adds up, bought a miniature steel thermos when I realized I was spending 50-100 euros a month on shit coffee in a papercup, one of my better moves

Even worse are those dills who get a vanity plate with the model or make of the car they're driving on it.

Not only are they wankers, they have zero imagination or creativity.
Case in point - driving to work today i saw a shiny black Volvo 4WD corporate-looking thing.

Vanity plate "XC60" white letters on black background.

1 foot to the left of the vanity plate in silver embossed letters- you guessed it - "XC60".

What about people who get car merchandise? Like a Ferrari jacket or something?

I wouldn't say it infuriates me, but it's a bit naff.

I could understand wearing a Ferrari jacket if you had a Ferrari, but I doubt you'd want to if you owned the car because it would take away from you looking a rich cool guy in a great car. I'm guessing some folk wear them if they are F1 fans. Seen a few Mercedes F1 and McClaren shirts and jackets out there at different times.

It would be having a Ford or a ordinary make of car jacket that would make me confused. Antone who spends money on making average road cars into something off Fast and Furious make me laugh. Really embarrassing.

I love those private car reg numbers. Trying to guess what it is meant to say then repeatedly saying TU88 GHU always makes car journeys fun.

Naming storms. Storm Brendan on the way in this week. Who decided this nonsense?Pretty sure you used to just say, "yeah, gonna be a stormy one". Now even the weather wants to identify.

People who do a full shop in a small Tesco/Co-op/Spar, wherever. It's a fucking convenience shop, no reason to get five baskets full of food.

Sneezing - I fucking hate that.

Hiccups - They have ruined a few nights out for me.

The Meghan - Harry thing. Just fuck off to Canada and don't come back. Take little Archie or whatever he's called and just stay there.

So you’re incensed at every single human bein... nay, animal on earth, yourself included, for an automatic action performed for general well being!? :lol:
Then people who use a convenience stor for, you know, their own convenience!?
Fuck’s sake trail, any wonder you like hitting the bottle, you’d be a fucking mess if you didn’t.

I can relate to being incensed by every single human. Part of what makes life great just thinking what absolute cunts other people must be just from seeing them once for a split second with no other interaction at all.

Does anyone even do that anymore? When I left school in 2002 it was all the rage for 17 year old lads to fit a Vauxhall Nova with massive alloys, an exhaust back box with the circumference of a dustbin and a stereo with massive speakers. There even used to be a scene for it where they'd all meet up on a Friday or Saturday night in a car park.

That still goes on. Boy racers. I work with a lad that's mad into all that. They're usually the type of lads blaring out hardcore dance music and go out with 16 year olds despite being 28.

It's bigger now than ever. The Fast and Furious franchise has given it huge mainstream exposure too.

That's surprising because I can't say I've seen any of those types of cars for a good 10 years, I know there was a massive craze when TFATF came out in 2001 but I honestly thought insurance costs would have put paid to that scene by now.

The bumbling fool of a doctor who works with me on Wednesday’s is so bad today that a patient asked if he was the same type of doctor as me and I’m seeing about 3x as many patients as him.
