Ordering food for delivery and giving your address, often to someone who doesn't master the language and should have no business being near a phone, spelling it out and making sure he or she notes it down correctly, only to have them call you back 15 minutes later because they can't find it and give you a bizarro world version of your address.

People walking along texting or checking emails. Invariably if you bump into them they look at you like you're in the wrong.

Drivers who seem to have forgotten what indicators are for.

I really hate waiting at a junction only to find I could have gone because the moron who is now turning right failed to indicate.

Tractors! Tractors drive me insane on the roads and ALWAYS seem to be in front of me, driving at 10 miles an hour, oblivious to the mounting chain of traffic behind them.

Farmers always bleat on about how early they have to get up in the morning. So if they're up so early, how come they drive their tractors in rush hour?

I also hate lorry drivers on dual carriageways who overtake other lorries and they realise that they are limited to the same speed so spend ages chugging alongside the lorry they are trying to overtake. pig ignorant!

Basically I pretty much hate anything else on the road!

I vote Mike J as the candidate for "even grumpier than me" in this thread!

Oh God yeah - mobile phones and texting in the street. That gets right on my tits. And I hate the way (I'm always saying "I hate", but it's just a device to exaggerate my grumpiness) that mobile phone users walk towards you in apparent silence, then just as they're passing, bellow out some shit down the phone. Almost as if they're proud to be maintaining a conversation.

And I hate the way how in restaurants, bars - and even round the dinner table with the extended family, half the people are texting. Sometimes I think they're even texting the person opposite them.

And I hate how people often stop to chat on a narrow pavement, completely blocking the way for others, who have to step onto the road to get past them. And it's worse when they've got umbrellas up. They poke your eye out, then force you onto the road in front of speeding lorries. Or tractors.

And I hate those phone calls from call centres in Calcutta. I don't get them here, but my mum is continually pestered, telling her how to fix her "slow computer." She doesn't even have one.

Bloody hell, I wouldn't be happy if I couldn't be grumpy!

If Graham and Mike will take the honors the grumpiest old men, I want the moniker of the grumpiest old woman!! smile Lots of things drive me nuts.

As previously mentioned, I hate the fact that people are always on their cellphones. I can’t sit down to lunch with my girlfriends unless they have the phones out. They constantly interrupt conversations to check their phones. “So Joan, tell me how.” Oops, their phone pinged, so they must check out the pings before resuming a 30 second conversation that happens before the next ping. I went golfing with 3 of them a few weeks ago. They put their phones in their golf carts. They would take one golf swing and then rush back to the cart to see if something was posted on their Facebook accounts. Cheez, it drove me nuts.

I hate certainly reality shows where ignorance and stupidity earn morons tons of money. I’ve know many literate fine Southern people; however, reality shows portray so many Southerners as stupid, stereotypical red necks and hicks. If they say, “Me and him are gonna go shot some there raccoons,” they get a reality show. If they are all overweight, even better. What is worse is that they attract a viewing audience. I feel sorry for teachers who try to instill literacy into their students’ writing and speaking. Those students see that having the IQ of an amoeba can earn them millions on TV.

(And I would smite my eyes and ears before I’d ever keep up with the Kardashian.)

I agree with Graham about those Scottish women who spew disgusting language around their three kids from three different fathers. However, to be equally fair, I am equally repelled by those bloody wankers who impregnated those women.

I hate that the media and paparazzi keep posting stories about totally talentless people like Lindsay, Jessica, Nick, Kim, Khloe, etc. Eeewwwwww!

It is hot here this summer. I’m tired of seeing dogs locked in cars with a slightly cracked window while people shop. Even worse are the stories we’ve read about babies and kids being locked in hot cars. What is wrong with these people? Many years ago, it was a pain for me to put my twin babies into car seats and load up a double stroller. Then I had to get them out to go into a store, and then back again. However, I would have NEVER left them in a car.

Okay, rant over for a little while.

Joan you old grump, I was implicitly referring to those bloody wankers when I ranted on about how much I hated the way young blokes drive, smoke and take their shirts off in winter. I should have added, "and I hate the way they impregnate stupid fat Scottish lassies who eat lard for breakfast."

By the way, where did you pick up that expression "those bloody wankers" anyway?

I thought I was the grumpiest member on this board? I'll add another-tattoos. Hate them. It defaces the beauty of the human body. Worse yet now people are writing passages on their bodies. When did we become walking note pads? There's not a single girl (or probably guy) in my neck of the woods over 18 that doesn't have tattoos. From 18 to 80 and I kid you not.

People who check and write text messages at stop lights. They sit there with their heads down and fail to notice when the light turns green. When I toot my horn and they see it's time to go, they look in the rear view mirror and give me the finger.

LOL, Graham. Glad you "implicitly" condemned those "blokes." Sorry I missed the message. I loved the TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Spike, a British vamp, always used the term "bloody wankers." I kind of liked the sound of those terms.

The person who drove the car before you leaves the radio blasting and the fan on high speed.


Bloody hell! What's my Missus doing driving your car??

One amusing example is a guy at my gym who had a hand print tattooed on each butt cheek (with opposing thumbs even). They look like hands today, but imagine what they'll look like after he's 40!

Hey - I know that guy! But I'd have thought my, uh, those, handprints would have disappeared by now!

'...I hated the way young blokes drive, smoke and take their shirts off in winter. I should have
added, 'and I hate the way they impregnate stupid fat Scottish lassies who eat lard for breakfast'. WELL, as someone who's lived in Edinburgh for over a year - I can attest to that! From Edinburgh, I'd frequently travel Scot Rail up to Stonehaven and further as I had friends there. But, there was no difference really, just they didn't have the 'posh' Edinburgh accent. When I now go over that mental image of 'stupid fat Scottish lassies who eat lard for breakfast', well, there's a Scotland you don't see on post-cards!

A more important question. What gym allows a member to show off ones bums?!

Solium, shhhh. He said it was a guy from his gym. He didn't say specifically he saw the prints AT the gym. wink

LOL! My gym (like most, I thought) has a locker room with showers. One occasionally sees bums there!

tv shows that have season finales with a lot of unanswered questions with the promise of them being answered the next season, only to be canceled prematurely. "Mob City" and "Boss" are very recent examples.

when you're in a long line at a store and the person in front of you pays for $3.50 worth of items with a check and takes their sweet ass time writing it.
