    People sitting at the entrance of a petrol station waiting to see what lane comes free first, blocking anyone else from entering and eventually blocking the road.

    People pulling up to petrol pumps just to go in to the store to buy stuff.

    BBC news when handing over to another correspondent having to include their job title like Asian Editor, no one cares. And then you have the ****s who correct their colleagues "no John I'm the Asian Correspondent', we don't give a **** about the BBC job hierarchy we are just mildly interested in what the ****s in China are up to.

    Petrol stations that are now Supermarkets, which makes everyone take about 10 hours to pay for fuel whilst they browse for Aberdeen Angus Steaks.

    That’s if you can find a petrol station. We used to have over half a dozen in Chandlers Ford and now we’re down to one. I don’t count Asda’s because its tanks are full of water.

    Supermarkets who open coffee shops which means that their car parks are full up because everybody who has finished their shopping is sitting in the coffee shop.

    Scrap that. Coffee shops in general. What a waste of a life.

    People disparage people who shop at Costco, despite shopping there themselves.

    TVs and other electronic devices that take an age to ‘warm up’. When I were a boy in the 1950s a radio would take 8 seconds to warm up and a TV 20 seconds and we thought that was a long time. Mind you, that was a modern tele which we didn’t get until about 1957.

    Well unless you've got a cooler or something for your perishable shopping you shouldn't be hanging about with it getting overheated really. No wonder people get sick after leaving meat and stuff in the boot of the car or the shopping trolley for half an hour whilst drinking coffee.
    I don't remember that many petrol stations in Chandler's Ford actually, must have had pumps at Hendy's I suppose but other than that I don't recalll many, perhaps behind Selwood's or something, never adventured there.

    BBC Radio 1.
    Just listened to it on a fairly long drive. Every piece of content was deemed 'awesome' or 'amazing' by the presenters.
    do they not have an opinion?

    So basically 60-70 % of the population of the UK then . That's a conservative estimate by the way.

    Oakmount Road now Oakmount motors
    Simpkins in Hursley Road
    Hiltingbury Road near the Tabby Cat. Now a block of flats.
    Eddie Perry ran one opposite the Methodist Church
    The one that’s just closed at the Picador garage at the junction of Leigh Road / Bournemouth Road

    People who use the phrase “spoiler alert” outside a film/tv context. Another silly amercianism and monumentally self-important.

    Brings to mind the 1980's film, The Tin Men. Selling aloominum sidings in Baltimore, think that's what we'd call a veranda or conservatory. Good film though.

    Anybody in a British establishment asking "can I get.....".

    No excuses, no prevarication, just immediate execution without trial. That hideous yank phrase boils my p*ss like no other.

    After nearly 20 years of resisting it, I now find myself using it accidentally. Every time it happens an angel loses its wings and kills a small part of me.

    TV channels showing the same episode of a show every night for about two weeks. Not even a new show either, a repeat of something which came out 5 years ago.

    That's slightly more forgivable because I'd never heard of that word until a bunch of hippies started extolling its virtues a few years back.
