    That's been my pet hate for years.
    Also, I hate the various mispronunciations of sixth. I shout at the TV every time someone talks about someone or something as being in sick/sickth place or being in Sickth Form Colege. If you can say six, you can add a th sound to it, surely?

    Bought and brought! They come from To Buy and To Bring.
    "I've bought my friend with me." No, you haven't, unless you had to pay for them to tag along!

    There's a Schrodinger thing going on there. The leaflet doesn't decide at which end it is until you open it.

    The whole rash of 'new' posters who are clearly not 'new' but multiple iterations of current posters.

    That should indeed be a hanging offence.

    I'm pretty sure you get the same effect with usb sticks. They only go in the 3rd way round.

    It's a toss up between the need to ask who used the last sheet of toilet paper but didn't replace it and the denials that it was any other member of the household, especially as there are only the two of here.

    Parking you can only pay for by phone. And then it doesn't work.

    People who ask you a question, go "Yes... yes... yes..." vaguely while you are answering it - and then ask you to repeat what you just said.

    Phone calls:
    * The false bonhomie of the man asking me how I am today while I think "Like you care" and I wait for him to broach the subject of insuring my washing machine or satellite TV before I put the phone down.
    * The robotic female voice calling me every day to say that BT's "technical department" has found that that my "IP address" is interfering with a telephone exchange somewhere in California and that landline and broadband services are consequently about to be suspended. As soon as I hear her voice, I replace the receiver.

    When an adult with the anger-management capacity of a two-year-old sounds their horn.

    Anyone shrieking OMG!

    Everything vaguely pleasant or interesting being described as awesome.

    The sad knowledge that my inner Victoria Meldrew sometimes gets the better of me :(
