Pet hates

We all have them.  I've seen some of them expressed on a few threads.  

What are yours?



  • I don't hate pets.

  • Too many to mention - but people who stand on the left of the escalator come pretty high on the list. 

  • WilkieWilkie ✭✭✭

    Journalists who can't be arsed to think of something other than "getting on the housing ladder" to describe people trying to buy their first home.


  • Neighbours playing loud music or parking across your driveway. You know who you are you b*****ds as your car now has 4 flat tyresimage

  • housing elevator?

  • That's very very specific, Wilkie. As a journalist myself, I'm getting sick of people using 'impact on' to mean 'affect'; and of people using the word 'journey' to describe any sort of process whatsoever - as in 'helping the patient through the cancer journey' (I've really seen that one).

  • WilkieWilkie ✭✭✭

    Journalists (in print and on the telly) are the people I hear using that term.  

    Every time there's a mention of house prices, first time buyers, the help to buy scheme.... they just have to say/write it!

  • You wouldn't find it where I work. Mind you, we don't report on housing.

  • people constantly chewing. Even worse if they chew with their mouths open. 

  • People who drop litter. I saw a guy last week who dropped his sandwhich box on the floor two feet from a bin. What a scumbag. 

  • People who do not have manners

    People that are so busy and important that they have to steam up an elevator on the left to save 30secs in their precious lives image

    Agree. Saw some motorist chuck litter out of his car the other day.

    Just keep it in your car until you have a bin to put it in! Scum!

  • Mr PuffyMr Puffy ✭✭✭

    People who put on their fog lights when it's raining, like dazzling the person behind will help.

  • Mr PuffyMr Puffy ✭✭✭

    People who "do" places.


  • Mr PuffyMr Puffy ✭✭✭

    Better stop now!


  • When supermarkets put 'BIGGER PACK BETTER VALUE' on a big bag of something that is cheaper to buy loose. It's only better value by comparison with the exceptionally poor value of your small bags, you bastards.

    Also, people who write 'subsequently' when they actually mean 'consequently'.

  • Umbrellas, especially the golfing ones.

  • JindaleeJindalee ✭✭✭
    I have go agree with Kev and Mathschick, I hate people without manners and top of the list is chewing with the mouth open, making horrible noises, and if someone can't say hello/morning, for example when they walk into the office. Be as grumpy as you like for as long as you want but say at least hello

    Drivers who don't indicate. I'm not bloody psychic!

    Ooh yes, especially on roundabouts. And drivers who don't think that cyclists and pedestrians need to know what they're planning to do just as much as other drivers do.

    People on here who seem to seem think we are all telepathic and when they start going off on one the rest of us are supposed to know that it's because of something written in that place called FB. Some of us aren't on FB and try to read the threads here as stand-alone conversations.

  • The man at the front of the queue at the traffic lights.What is he expecting to happen.

    Motorcyclists who pull in front of you at the traffic lights and then are on their mobile when the lights change.

  • People who use the word "Like" all the time. Listen out for it. "It was like the best thing I've ever seen" Either it was or wasn't!


  • People who get on the tube and then stop dead just inside the door, blocking the entrance for everyone behind them, while people coming in the other doors take all the spare seats.

    And anyone who uses 'iconic' when they mean 'quite well known'. 

  • People who park on the yellow zig zags outside the school gates. Put there to protect all of our children, somehow there is always some parents who think that their needs greatly outweigh the needs of everyone else and park there to avoid having to walk an extra few metres. 

  • Cats. Why do people have cats as pets? They let them out most of the time anyway so what's the point? Are they pets for lazy people? And they s**t in my garden constantly.

  • I love cats image

  • Cats - horrible little buggers.

    Screaming kids - why do kids feel the need to scream constantly? Not all of course and I've nothing against kids having some noisy fun but screaming for attention like you're being stabbed? Presumably they have learnt it from their shouty parents.

  • Last one before I head off for work (another pet hate) - forums that are supposed to send you an email notification when there has been a reply on a thread you've posted on...
