People sitting beside me on buses. Strange, I know but everyone who sits beside me on a bus annoys the life out of me. They always have something annoying about them. A smell, a bad cough, sneezing fits, they talk sh*t to me, they have a million bags and I miss my stop when I try to get out past them. It's probably just me though.

people on buses that when you sit beside them they wince and look like you've just slapped them across the face or if you have done something wrong by sitting next to them.
Then also peoples reactions if you sit beside them and you blow your nose, or cough- jeez it winter 9 months of the year in Ireland, flu and colds are always going around.
Plus you have to wear a couple of coats to shield you from the rain or cold, so there is bound to be a bit of a niff from the sweat or drying damp on the clothes - again these folk you sit beside expect folks to be going home on the bus/train etc as if they have just jumped out of the bath.
If you dont like public transport- then f**king walk or take your own car...

100% agree, if they were so high and mighty as to look down on the common people why are they on the bus?

People who cough and sneeze in public places without covering up and doing it into a hankie/tissue or something. Where have they been since science discovered the transmission mechanism for colds and flu? Right - coughing and sneezing! Their attitude seems to be "I've got it, so I don't see why everyone else shouldn't have it". Selfish, inconsiderate hoors. There used to be a law against spitting to restrict transmission of TB. Why not a law against sneezing and coughing out into the air we all have to share in a confined space? It would save the public purse a fortune.

(Maybe I missed your irony there Lynchbhoy).

It's my charm and good looks.


I can't stand people breathing heavily through their nose, it drives me mad!
Someone sitting beside you in mass coughing and sneezing into their hand and then it comes to shaking hands....ffs!
The worst I've ever seen was standing in a cue at a Deli counter.  It was a few summers ago and a really hot day.  The fella was rushed of his feet and you could see the sweat sitting out on his forehead.  He goes to make up a sandwich for the person in front of me, puts on those plastic gloves and THEN wipes the sweat of his forehead with his covered hand and dips it in the chicken!

I walked away!

 Or when they're short handed in the deli and the lad making the sandwiches is also dealing with the money
 then right back to the next poor b**tard without washing his paws >:(

Not sure if its been motioned but this is the mother of all gear grinding as far as I am concerned

People whom wont pull over when holding up traffic. If it’s an old person I don’t get as mental as I would if it’s a younger person. Can they not see that they are f**king holding everyone else up? They are the people who cause accidents, not the lunatic flying down the road!. It leads to road rage. Well in my case anyway.

I agree. I hate all this pretentious kissing shite. I never know now who I'm supposed to kiss or handshake at so mostly I just grunt and back off and look very very unkissable (which isn't hard). I see young wans now and they're kissing each other three or four times and making that f****n awful "maw-mwa" sound even when they're just coming back from the jacks.
