    At the moment it seems they do. They've both managed to drag a one off problem out for about 6 months.

    No, different problems. I haven't crashed my car into a telegraph pole.

    Ambulance chasing claim management companies; our car was damaged in a car park whilst we were shopping in Lancaster, at the time it was hit we were having a cup of tea in a cafe, yet we still got the obligatory "were you injured in your recent accident" call.

    Well you might have spilled hot tea onto yourselves due to the visual shock and the emotional stress.....
    And to think our parents and grandparents survived 6 years of global conflict without so much as a tenner in compensation..

    I used to have a Screwfix catalogue, which made do in an emergency but these days it’s been replaced by an app, which I find less effective.

    That's not what I typed! (and I did check at the time)

    Add auto-correct to the list of small things that annoy me.

    Councils or whoever it is who have the bright idea of putting pedestrian crossings 50 yards after a roundabout. The natural thing coming out of a roundabout is to speed up then you have to hit the brakes and risk someone slamming in the back of you!

    Vapeing - it's always that sickly strawberry smell that stays in your nose for hours afterwards after you've walked into a cloud of it. Aren't there any other flavours like fresh petrol or freshly spread silage on a newly ploughed field?

    The **** at work who decides to milk the work absence policy for every drop of time off and then claim he can only do light duties, at work, while the rest of us have to work extra hard to cover his lazy arse.

    People playing music, TV shows and games on their phone/iPad in public, without using headphones. No I don’t want to listen to your Spotify playlist and neither do the 10 other people sat in your vicinity.

    when going through a zone covered by average speed camera's (50mph), drivers who drive right up your arse and try and push you out of the way whilst you are doing 50mph....and they fly past.

    surely, they get penalised by the 'system'?

    Used to see this all the time when I was working on the road.

    People speeding along in these sections of road, slowing down for the camera and then speeding up again. Clearly oblivious to the importance of the word 'average' on the signs. Idiots.

    People that do not know how to use lanes properly on the motorway

    People that don't say thanks when you open doors for them, move out of their way etc

    People with ****e bar etiquette

    People that don't get out of the way when people are driving faster behind them, generally seems more prevalent when speed restrictions are in place.

    Staff who know the sickness policy and so are off the exact amount of time before it triggers a disciplinary.

    Staff who call in sick on a Friday but then go to a Spice Girls concert and stick it all over social media that evening.

    Staff who take time "off sick" when their manager is on holiday, and are surprised by the reaction when they bump into the manager at a local family leisure amenity.

    Zlatan f**king Ibrahimovic.

    Of all the people to score the winner against us in a cup final. He's hardly alone in being hopelessly in love with himself and thinking he's hilarious, what I don't get is why so many fans think he's some sort of legend.

    Double parkers.. not a cold mod but a style of car parking becoming the scourge of out time

    Double parkers, double parking where there is space beside where they've double parked...

    Double parkers, double parking where there is space beside where they've parked and opposite a junction. That's just dangerous you pr**k.

    People who park right outside an entrance waiting for someone just because they are too lazy to use the short-term parking provided 20 yards away.

    Outside Southampton Parkway station for example.

    When you are coming up to a set of traffic lights on green and then the driver ahead slows right down because they don't know where they are going. They then speed off as the lights turn red, leaving you stuck to sit through the next cycle.
