Pet hates - NOT about pets!

    DVDs not put back in their cases.

    'I could of' instead of 'I could have'.

    Somethink instead of something.

    Putting empty cat food pouches on the worksurface instead of in the bin.

    I could go on and on and on and on...….

    I should have said everyday mundane issues.

    My pet has a lot of hates. He hates me. He hates birds and mice. He hates cold.

    I'll poll him and get you some more.

    "We was" instead of "We were".

    When I turn up in good time for an appointment to discover they are running an hour late - and then either don't apologise or spend so long apologising that they are running even later.
    Surely in this day and age they could use their automated texting system (that sent me no fewer than 5 messages to remind me about the appointment) to tell me they are running an hour late and suggest I turn up perhaps 45 minutes after my appointment time! I understand why people who lose money when not at work get cross.

    That's not a pet hate, is it? It's a rant.

    The use of the word ''consistency'' as used by SLT and their minions.

    People telling me what to do. I'm retired and 67 years old - if I want your advice or opinion I'll ask for it.

    I really should - but I already have only a small circle of friends.:D:D

    People who write "drawer" as "draw". Or "saw" as "sore". Or "our" as "are". I saw all three today, but "draw" crops up again and again:

    "Chest of draws for sale" - Ebay (hey, at least it wasn't "chester draws for sale"!)
    " I sore on Facebook" - umm, Facebook
    "Learn to speak are language" man with a placard, Twitter

    I have many other pet hates. One of them is the expression "First world problems". ;-)
    I may be back soon.

    You'll get better responses when you tone down the aggression.

    Hubs feeding the cats in new bowls but leaving the old ones on the floor for me to clear up!

    Yes. "Street furniture". Necessary, but I often look at a road and imagine it without the lines, cables, bollards, traffic lights, signs...
