What annoys you?

I heard an item on BBC radio5 live the other day about what sounds really annoy you. There were recordings of people throwing up, sirens, babies screaming, mobile phones, etc............My personal hate is screaming kids in pubs!

What's yours?

The alarm going off on a dark Winter's morning. . . . .

Kids, 90's techno music tinny sound, angry voices, Arsenal supporters singing, chalk on blackboard and bones cracking to name but few.

You had to get Arsenal in didn't you , KB!!

Grumpy old git said...

People who stand at the bar drinking and preventing me from getting close enough to pick up the pint you just bought me!

Blazing said...

All of the above, bar one.

*clears throat and prepares to belt out a chorus of Good old Arsenal*

"Diet coke"

- uttered by the fat bastard who has just ordered one million burgers and fries in front of me when all I need is ONE pissy shit-burger to satiate my craving for crap food in a bag

I had to jg! *LOL*

Blazing,

*sticking my fingers into my ears and proceed to hum "We Love You Tottenham, we do"*

My 'sound', more like a phrase!
I have seen your garden blaze
And the photos are so cheerful and delightful.
That if anyone said 'Yuk!'
They would soon be out of luck
For I'd think that word dishonest and quite spiteful.
Yes, that 'Yuk' word would sound awful,
Almost criminal, unlawful,
If applied to the profusion in your garden.
All the flowers that you grew
Mean 'Yuk!' just will not do!
It's an awful sound! And so I beg your pardon!

The sound of the words "like" and "you know" being used repeatedly in one sentence. It just sucks the brain cells right out of my skull!

With you on the screaming kids John, but with me it is cats purring - don't get me wrong, I am a cat lover, but when they purr it triggers all my fear sensors and I hate it.

sad for dubaibilly about the purring. Agree with screaming kids, waiting statf who place you right next to said kids, parents who don't remove screaming kid.

Person that arrives very early for a bus, chats to friend, then waits until gets on bus before starting the bus fare/ticket hunt - in voluminous overfilled bags. You knew you had to pay before leaving home..........Arrrrgh from me

Pommie blogger whinging "Why didn't you tell me your blog was open?"

When Whinger had already been sent his own, personal, individual email the previous week, telling him the new blog was finally set up and its address.

Hmmmm, a maybe half ration huggles only

john.g. said...

Mickle, be careful!

Rinkly rimes! Welome to insanity!

#debi, I'm with you all the way on that one!

Goth, the diet coke can go with the diet J.D.!

DB, I hate cats!

irreverentmama said...

Totally with you all on the screaming kids. Then there are the whining children. UGH.

Possibly even worse, because less avoidable, those damned crows greeting the dawn outside my bedroom window.

Sylv said...

Screaming kids I can fade out by switching off hearing aids :) blessing in disguise!

Mr Farty said...

Unattended mobile phones, unattended car alarms, Barry Fucking Scott, that bloke on the radio who asks if you're a Venn owner, old people, young people, yappy dogs, shoppers who stand in groups at the intersections and entrances to shops with their trollies discussing the weather.

But mostly people who complain about things that annoy them ;P

btw, I adore the sound of cats purring.

Keith said...

mr farty - and everybody calls ME a Grumpy Old Git! I think you have just stolen my crown. Oh, HELL!

Keith said...

I heard that John G once had a job as a "stand-up comedian" in an old peoples home.

They didn't understand his jokes, but they still pissed themselves.

Touché! (That's for the "Keith Joke")

More than one sneeze from the same person, loud nose blowing and teeth sucking.

Wasn't it sounds?

BarbaraS said...

What really gets on my nerves? Funnily enough I'm not bothered by other peoples' screaming kids. Once I know they're not mine, I just zone out and don't hear them.

What really bugs me is smelly feet, or in fact any bad body odour. I was born with a very sensitive nose, which isn't as nice as it sounds. And snoring. Snoring like a chain-saw. Yep, that really, really gets on my nerves. And car/house alarms that go off at two in the morning and stay on all night. Did I mention that I'm a bit sensitive...? ;)

john.g. said...

You're ALL brilliant!

You're ALL brilliant!

Mickle in NZ said...

Dear Cat Loather, you have some amazing moments too.

I'll stay firmly with my cat as first current love. Who else would put up with me and my designer innards?


Huggles and care, Michelle

Babies screaming over a long period of time is quite trying on my nerves, I must say...

It's funny...I've seen three movies recently---one right after the other---where someone was throwing up! It's like it's the NEW thing in films....There has to be at least ONE Scene in every film now where someone throws up...I find it makes me nauseous to see and HEAR that! UGH!

People who ingest air at the same time as their food. e.g. ice lolly slurpers.

Jayne said...

Inane 'soccer' songs that go on & on & on with the simplistic words "'ere we go 'ere we go, 'ere we go". A dentist drilling teeth. Screaming brats......

It's Tuesday, where's the joke?
