Things that really annoy me
« on: July 22, 2018, 12:22:14 PM »
Scottish people who start EVERY sentence with "erm"

Drivers who drive into a parking space only to struggle reversing out {'cos they can't see}...reverse in, drive out.

People who stand at a bus stop for ten minutes then when they get on the bus THAT'S when they start fumbling for their fare.

Dustbin men who leave rubbish on the road because they can't be ars*d to pick it up.

People in shops wanting the person behind the counter to check fifty lottery tickets for them.

Parcel delivery drivers who use scanners.

Scanners.

Phoning premium numbers.

Booking a holiday and being asked to "buy" your seats on the plane.

Phoning the doctors for an appointment and talking to a none medical receptionist.

Self service "tills" in supermarkets.

Blue badge holders.

Going for a meal {in a pub} and having to pay for your meal before you get it.

Noise {of any description}

Football fans who don't understand you don't really like football.

Appeal commercials on T.V.

Politicians.

Too many tattoos.

School holidays.

Body odour.

Mobile phones that give out that silly "whistle" when they get a text.

Mobile phones.

List OC, I haven't even scratched the surface yet:-

People nearly walking into you because they are checking their phone.

Women's magazines.

People who can't string a sentence together without swearing.

Pubs charging the same for a pint of shandy as a pint of beer.

People who give their kids stupid names because celebrities do. {Please tell WILL.I.AM. that spells William}

My wife finally finding the shopping list at the checkout.

Lack of law and order.

A trail of litter leading right up to a litter bin.

Fast food and drinks cans stuffed down bus seats.

Metro's strewn over bus floors.

People who think laws were made for other people.

Not being able to finish a crossword as I can't get the last clue.

And finding a fag end on my drive EVERY morning {and none of us smoke}

O.k so I'm a sad old codger!! but it keeps me out of trouble.

What is it with women and shoes????????

We were watching an old episode of Who wants to be a millionaire the other night and one contestant a young woman possibly late 20's early 30's was asked what she would do with the money I think she said towards a deposit on a house and buy some shoes, when asked about shoes it turns out she already has 50 pairs, Chris Tarrant's reply was a gem  "Why?.... you've only got two feet" EXACTLY!!!
I said to the wife {shows how much I know} "50 pairs she must have spent at least two grand on that lot", my wife said "And the rest!"

It's the same when they are going out somewhere "special" they HAVE to have a new dress, but do they buy a dress that will go with a pair of shoes they already have, of course not that's too easy, they buy a dress THEN look round for a pair of shoes that will go with it.
Oh I forgot they'll also need a new handbag...and a hairdo...and a manicure...and pedicure ad infinitum.

Victor - sorry Sorastro

Shoes  - as long as I have a decent pair I'm not interested in buying another pair, same goes for handbags as long as I have a handbag in black brown or white - I'm happy.

Smelly people - this hot weather has brought out a large number of people who stink, stale sweaty bodies and clothes. No excuse.

People who let their children run riot in the GP waiting room -
Moodiness
belching loudly
- and the other end as well
That chuffing cat which got into my hedge hog house for the food.
Lazy people

Fake news and b**l s**t  (y)

I've seen quite a bit on social media today, never mind the supposed news agencies !
Over 90% of all computer problems can be traced back to the interface between the keyboard and the chair

I have mentioned before stuff all over buses, but it's got to the point now where these buses are just like mobile canteens. I get on a bus now, especially coming back from town, and these passengers get on with humongous cups of coffee and Greggs sausage rolls and sarnies and proceed to stuff their faces during the journey whilst droning on on the phone. Most of these people then alight from the bus leaving the remnants of their beano strewn all over the seat and floor, I've lost count the number of times I have got up during a journey to pick up a bottle/can that's rolling around on the floor of the bus and held it till we got off and put it in a bin.  We caught a bus to town about 3 weeks ago and one [double] seat no one could sit on as it was covered in what looked like cola, the bus was busy so a few had to stand.
My wife says I wonder if they treat their houses like that and I say YES of course they do they are just animals in human form.

I think the bus companies need to go back to basics with some ideas, things that are rare nowadays on the buses.
No food or drink to be consumed on the bus.....
Please have exact fare ready.....
Any troublemakers will be banned from using the service....
Able bodied must give their seat to the elderly or disabled......

Until at least those four rules are reintroduced the buses remain foul mouthed smelly mobile pig sty's, not a pleasant experience.

You are unfortunately very correct with your comments. I have been a bus driver for close to 13 years & have seen a lot of changes during that time. No food or hot drink to be consumed on the bus - we should be sponsored by Greggs!                                              As for having exact fare - that is not a problem. We are not issued with a float by the company so if you can't give change we give them a change voucher - like an i.o.u. to be redeemed by another bus driver. They look in their hand like you have pooed on it when it's issued despite being around for a few years.Trouble makers (serious) do get banned- all buses now have audio and video cctv.As for able bodied giving up seats for elderly or disabled-that's usually the discretion of passengers & I find on the whole that they will sort it themselves. There is an official guide which I guess virtually no bus user has ever read and here is the link.https://www.stagecoachbus.com/conditions-of-carriage
