I know it's a bit trivial but when your standing waiting to cross a road at traffic lights and you've pressed the button for the green man to come on. While you stand there waiting to cross, why does every person who arrives afer you proceed to press the button 3 to 4 times. Do they really think the people standing there haven't thought to do it already?

Less of the fermanagh bashing ONeill. Talking of english far be it for me to stand up for the great language but what about 'American English'? Putting Z in words instead of S and leaving U out of words like colour and behaviour. Always pisses me off when I'm reading stuff written in the States. Also there use of offence instead of attack and uniforms instead of kits when referring to a team's colours.

Does anybody else hate the mobile phone joke phenomenom. I just dont get it. My Brother in law was at it tonight. Hands me his phone with a stupid smile

"here .......read that"

then he starts to laugh as I start to read and laughs louder when he knows I'm at the punchline  ???

Now I would guess that 90% of people don't find the jokes funny enough to laugh out loud but they do because they have to

I hate any type of fake social networking bullshit. This is the latest
Itís a lot easier to sing karaoke than to sing opera

Good example. Detest this as well - usually read the first line and say, 'aye I've seen that before', even if I haven't.

They do the same with recordings of prank phone calls. Pisses me off.

For once, I found one of these funny the other night. I had a few pints on me, though.
How does it sound at ten in the morning?

People who slow down/brake coming up to a green light. Especially when it means you either have to skip the lights or stop all together.

For f**k sake the light is green. Green means go, so f**king go!!
