Humming! I hate it, it makes me irrationally angry and my hubby hums during the supermarket shop.
People saying ...
Thish year / lass year / necks year / this wee kend/ this mumf / lass mumf /axe instead of ask ...
I'd thought of something for this thread and now I've forgotten it. It's really annoying...
Men in low slung trousers so half their underwear is on display. It makes their bodies look too long and their legs too short. I'm always reminded of weasels up on their back legs.
The "I've just filled my pants" look. Not very becoming.
My friend has a really irritating habit of pointing out that I have a stain on my t shirt, ladder in my tights or spot on my chin. That annoys the hell out of me
When I walk up the carpeted stairs in my house you honestly can’t hear a sound (except the odd knee creak). My kids thunder up like elephants. I don’t even understand HOW they can make that much noise, let alone why. Another reason why I want a bungalow.
The sight of anyone using chewing-gum.
I used to enjoy watching coverage of Poker on the TV, but if any player is chewing, especially if their lower jaw swings from side to side in the process, I switch channels IMMEDIATELY!
Also, listening to anyone who carries on eating while making a phone call. Can't turn the phone off fast enough!
Another thing that annoys me is when my children write in shorthand and I have to work out what they mean. This is what I sent to my eldest yesterday, and the reply.
Hearing people eat. Grounds for divorce here. Misophonia.
At least you got a reply, a nice polite one too.
Predictive text. I spell things correctly on my phone and tablet and then find that predictive text has changed things to absolute nonsense. Why does it thinks that 'Gerry is calling in this afternoon' makes more sense as 'Gerrymandering is ....'?
Yep and people who phone me when they are cooking the dinner/ emptying the dishwasher etc. All the clattering down the phone does my head in. I usually terminate the phone call fairly instantly, by saying, “ You sound really busy, so I’ll let you get on.”
Spitters. I hate them. If you need to spit do it into a tissue or a toilet or something.
Especially those 'gobbers' who honk up loudly before they spit.
Those who eat cheese and onion crisps in a enclosed space.
