I sort of get you, but end of the day, it's up to them.

The thing guaranteed to get on my nerves is similar to OleJanx - someone calls you and just says "Hello", of course you reply and pause waiting for some more information, they pause and then just say Hello again, by this point your are "Yes, hello?", this goes on for several f**king centuries while my brain is screaming "you called me! f**king tell me who you are and what you want" and then you have to ask "Yes, hello, who is this and what do you want?" and 10 times out 10 it is useless time sucking shit....

Agree with all of these. Manners cost nothing, yet mean so much.
People who need help to even take a piss irritate me.
Get up and go - what, are they related to sloths? Which imbecile gave them a job?
Too many people whose idea of lateral thinking is to lie down and have a kip.
ARRRGGGHHHH!

People who -
Choose to sit down next to you on a train or a bus when the carriage/bus is completely empty.
Use LOL ROFL and all other text speak.
Speed up and almost cause a trolley war when they see that you are heading towards the same checkout as them.
People who name drop.
People who sneeze without covering their nose
People who pick their nose in the car and think that they are invisible to all other human beings.
And so the list goes on ...................

The old chestnuts over here include the inability of many people to understand the concept of the queue, people who insist on entering a lift or train before letting others out first and the failure of most drivers to use their indicators properly or even at all.

When I'm on the phone in the car, and another occupant then makes a call. Especially when I'm driving as well.
