    Dogs lying with their back legs stretched flat out behind them rather than being tucked under them. They look run over or dislocated and it's just wrong.

    More irritating still...they now want you to pour the soup 'into a suitable container' before heating it in the microwave!

    People who faff about reverse parking into spaces in car parks. Either drive in or learn how to reverse...either is fine, but don't spend twenty minutes blocking the car park going in and out.

    The increasing number of so-called educated people in the media who mispronounce the letter T, the letter TH and the word 'the.'

    Plastic bubble packs that are impossible to open.
    Fast food leaflets through the letter box.
    When it pours with rain half an hour after the window cleaner has finished.

    Incommunicado, I am at a loss.
    I agree with al your examples but I am The Wife who not only leaves a home-burned CD, so everyone has to put up with my choice, in the passenger door pocket of both cars, but even gets annoyed at myself with the shaky rolly noise when I'm driving.

    Bless me Father.

    I'm getting into this now …. miles and miles of traffic cones, roadworks signs and lanes cordoned off on the M25 - and no sign of anyone working there!

    Yeh speed restriction sign "obstruction" or "debris in road" when there hasn't been any for 40 miles.

    My dog does that, I think it's cute. I think it's a terrier thing.

    I know where you're coming from Ivar, but it's high time there was something other than Brexit to discuss.

    Brexit has been done to death. This forum needs new ideas to spark the imagination and you never know where they might go.

    For me that used to be a can of WD40, in my own car, until I wedged it in to its door-pocket with a car manual. Result.
    I have since removed the ice-scraper from the passenger door door-pocket, because that used to slide around and irritate me.

    For me its house p.o.r.n. - I love all the property programmes - such excellent fantasy.

    People who say 'sh' instead of 's'. It's getting alarmingly common.
