Default Things people do which drive you nuts !

- People who yawn without covering their mouth

- People standing on the wrong side of an elevator

- Back home when a bus came late, there was always some old codger who decided it was his duty to have a right go at the driver, stopping other people getting on behind him, and actually delaying the bus even more !

- People who don't carry cash, so pay for a AED 20 Sandwich on their Bank Card, causing a huge hold up !

- People who walk slowly in crowded areas cos they are texting , talking on a mobile or reading a ****ing newspaper.


Your turn....

Default Re: Things people do which drive you nuts !

people (generally Germans) that get out of the ski lift and have a nice little talk and admire the view instead of getting their arse out of the way...

kids with those shoes with wheels underneath...

people that stand in the queu at a fast food restaurant and only start thinking about what they want to order when it's their turn...

people that dance in a wild and inappropriate way in front of me at concerts...(this happens a lot)

people that wait until there are no cars in the whole of the UAE before they dare to pull onto the road...

people that fuss over a joined barbill cause the had one drink less than the others...

That is a pet peeve of mine.
Along with....people that wait until their groceries are all tallied up before getting their wallet out and sorting payment. Even worse at a fast food outlet. What...are you surprised you're going to have to pay or something?

Default Re: Things people do which drive you nuts !

people that try and get into the lift before you have a chance to even get out.

people that walk out of a shop and stop dead in the mainstream of pedestrian traffic in a mall.

people talking on mobile phones getting in your way..I think they think that the "mobile" part means that you have to be moving when talking on a mobile phone
