    Two words: “coming up”
    Talking over the credits at the end of films.
    Shrinking the credits so you can’t read them just so they can tell you what’s on next.
    Recapitulating the story so far after every advert break
    People who say “would of”
    Drums at football games (actually this is a big thing for me)
    People who don’t thank you when you hold the door for them or let their car through before you.
    That irritating uptalk?

    How long have we got?

    People who smoke weed - it stinks and we can all smell it!
    Drivers who drive 10 miles under 50 mph limit, then drive 10 miles over 30 mph limit
    Fans who say "we, us etc" when they have never even been to the city of the club they support, let alone seen the team live.
    Anyone who uses the phrase "Low-hanging fruit" or any business speak. I would quite happily kill them on the spot.
    Vox-Pops on News programmes: I am pretty sure hearing the thoughts of Tony and Sheila outside of Greggs on a Tuesday afternoon is not necessarily going to be that enlightening.

    Let’s not forget that a cyclist on a bike and not in a car is leaving the road that little bit emptier for the rest of us.

    The Daily Heil always fails to process this. “Road tax” based on emissions, unless I fart on a ride I’m not contributing to climate change. Does that bellend Always.SFC have similar issues with golfers wearing golf stuff, park footballers playing in footie kit, or Judo players doing Brian Jacks impersonations? BTW I Also have third party insurance, another Heil misconception. Oh and B o l l o c k s to Brexit

    I hate noticing how easily I get annoyed over the littlest thing these days. Seriously, I showed wifey a few episodes of One Foot in the Grave a little while back. She said he was just like me.

    Southampton doesn't have 3 telephone area codes, it's (023). It's not (02380), (02381) or (02382). Maybe it's just because I'm f'kin old.

    People who use the word "myself" instead of "I" or "me". "David and myself are going to London." "It was just Dave and myself." ****ing idiots.

    People who start every other sentence with the word "So". (That'd be everyone who ever appeared on Pointless.)

    Still don't see what was wrong with 0703 or why they had to change it.

    How do you know where the camera is? It takes me an age at St. Mary’s trying to see where Kenzie is doing her interviews.

    Yes! People who drive larger vehicles like big 4WDs should take a separate test. If you aren't able to park your vehicle between the lines, it's too much car for you and you aren't able to control it properly.

    Not sure that that's the point of parking in 2 places. Where I've seen it it's obviously done to stop people banging your very (far too) large car with their doors when trying to exit their far more reasonably dimensioned vehicle, correctly parked in an allotted space. Round here we have a bloke who has a Peugeot 308 Coupé Cabriolet which is pretty wide so he parks it in 2 spaces to avoid getting it banged by car doors. Purely selfish. Governments just need to ban SUVs and have done with it, most of their owners just don't need them anyway.. If you've ever been to Geneva airport you'll know the problem. There most of the vehicles in the car parks are extra wide SUVs. No question of taking up 2 spaces there so you really have to be supple to get out of your car without banging the neighbouring one.
