Default Miserable old gits thread. Your opportunity to moan about the modern world

People who use a mobile phone hands free wire and then walk holding the mouthpiece up to their mouth !

People who buy rounds of drinks in a bar on their debit cards

People who put their shopping on the black bit that moves the items towards the cashier. and then p**s off cos they have remembered something they had forgotten and hold everyone up until dickhead come back.

And worst of all.............White kids talking like 50 Cent or some Rastafarian !!

People who take pictures of their families in a shopping mall - WTF it's a store front - a fountain maybe, a monument, yes, but in front of effing Borders - now seriously. Note, spelling has improved - it's the tea.

People who play music on their phone on loadspeaker while walking down the street or on public transport. FFS.

NO, you are not being cool and we are not looking at you in admiration, we are thinking of how to snatch the phone off you and throw it into the nearest wall.

Tailgating...

that annoys me. Well, it doesnt...it just makes me wind them up by driving REALLY slowly then speed up when they want to overtake.
