DaithÝ O'SÚ.

The new version of Excel on Windows Vista, especially when it won't make my files compatible with the 2003 type (and therefore most computers as of now), and when it corrupts existing files upon opening them, for some reason unknown.

f**kers who drive at 40-50mph, or even less, in 60mph zones, i.e. main roads, missed the first quarter of the game in Ballina last sunday after getting stuck behind these. It's particularly frustrating because a line of cars driven by people who aren't necessarily reckless but are left to take risks due to these, on the kind of roads where you have to think long and hard about making a move. E.g. you get stuck behind someone outside Tubbercurry heading for Sligo, expect to be stuck behind them til after Ballinacarrow, if traffic is steady heading the other way. As bad as speeding drivers, though obviuosly in a different manner, IMO.

Edit - I might add re the N17, the one place where you can get an opportunity to pass (at the Achonry creamery) also happens to be a spot where the Guards of fond of being located, in their usual 'catch the ordinary Joe and ignore the boy racers' task.

You go to the express checkout and some auld biddy is there in front of you, she thinks its alright to go the express checkout (10 items or less) with her entire weeks shopping. In fairness she is chancing her arm, your one behind the till should have told her to sling her hook and go to another checkout!

I do that all the time and nobody says anything.

How about people who go into a massive supermarket to buy 3 things they could get in the corner shop and then expect special treatment?

Deciding upon yourself that an unwritten courtesy rule put in place by the people who run and design the supermarket, so that people with a smaller shopping list dont have to queue for a long time - doesnt have to be abided by your good self and that you have no problem with jumping in there with 365 packets of cookstown sausages and god knows what else and fecking up the whole fecking system which without people like you would work quite well?

No? Must just be in my head then!

But if you go to a big supermarket expect to cue.  You go to the trouble to going to a big supermarket, looking for a space, parking, walking maybe 100yards to the shop, walk around the shop picking up your 5 items and then suddenly you're in a massive hurry and need special treatment?  Doesn't make sense to me. 
And some of us need to get out of the shop before the car's clamped.
