    I'd imagine that this is a good way to get some gropage action.

    I forgot to add window washers. If they start washing my windows without my permission I turn on my wipers and start moving my car back and forwards. A few times I have actually got out of my vehicle and yelled at them, but they really pissed me off.

    Not sure WHY exactly.

    Embarrassed FOR them? That's extremely good of you.

    I dislike it too - it's an intrusion on my personal space. If I want to listen to sermons and song, I'll actually go to church.

    In fact, I dislike ANYONE on the street approaching me for a signature or donation. If I want to donate or add my name to a list , I'll do it online.

    I especially hate those numb nuts in Westfield malls who come up to you offering hand cream from the Dead Sea. I hate that they are contributing to the continued deterioration of the place (it's drying up) AND get in my face demanding $50 for a miniscule tube of goo I won't use.

    BTW - Westfield have said they are not allowed to approach anyone. They are supposed to sit in their booths and wait for you to come to them. Complain to the management office if they do it.

    The only charity that gets my money is the SPCA. Their street collectors are so much more polite and unobtrusive. Besides, they often bring their dogs with them and I get to pat them and appease my inner child.

    Mates that get a bit pissed and start repeating themselves over and over again!

    Washing my dishes in the kitchen sink because my man hasn't got around to installing the dishwasher we brought TWO FUCKING YEARS AGO.

    People who think parking their trolley and chatting to someone in the middle of an aisle is a good idea, even if you are standing there trying to get through. Unfortunately I've found some people do this whilst they're driving a car too, and just stop in the middle of the road to lean out their window and have a conversation.

    People who don't indicate.

    Middle aged women who think it's cute to put on a baby-ish voice and act like a child. Honestly have come across a few 30 and 40-something year old women who think they're being endearing and adorable by doing this. Hope someone else has come across a similar type person, they're difficult to describe. Suppose they're not really hurting anyone, it just makes me cringe a bit.

    Being called by my full first name. Oddly it doesn't bother me if I'm being given shit for it, but I don't like it being used seriously (usually by family), because it's simply not the name I'm known by, or that I have been known by since I was about 5.

    People who bitch and moan about the same shit and don't do anything about their situation/lack of resourceful-ness.

    Two-faced-ness - just man up and say what you mean/are saying about someone behind their back.

    People who don't return shopping trolleys.

    People who stand too close in queues.

    ^^^ Also all of those.

    Peeling dirty vegetables straight into the sink. It's double handling. I like to peel them (if I peel them) into a container ready to carry to the compost.
    Dirty plug-holes with bits stuck there and slime.
    Kitchen compost buckets that are left there for days to go mouldy, and are then hard to clean. I stick the scraps into a glass or ceramic bowl, and empty it within a day; then it gets washed with the dishes.

    People who walk slow or cut you off when you are walking.

    I have just been to Sylvia Park (and bought the God of War collection) and experienced massive crowd rage.

    Ew, if I did that at my Mum's house I'd get a hiding.

    Or she'd post me all the empty bottles/packets.

    Or a bill for replacements.

    Toddlers, first and foremost.
    I don't mind babies, I don't mind big kids, but I fricking hate toddlers and preschoolers.

    People that don't indicate at roundabouts, and also, people that indicate WRONG at roundabouts (don't indicate right when you're just going straight through, you fuckstick. I just sat there waiting for nothing!)
    Also, people who think that just because its 5.30am they don't have to indicate at all, anywhere.

    People coughing.

    Loud breathing.

    People who smell. Deodorant was invented for a reason, seriously, there is no reason for you to stink that bad.

    People who email me in the weekend, then send another, than another, because I haven't replied. BUSINESS HOURS PEOPLE!
    People who get all offended when I tell hem we're open from 6 til 2.

    Gritty stuff on the kitchen floor.

    People who leave floaters in the toilet. How hard is it to check its all flushed away before you leave?

    When the radio station can't get their act together and plays ads and a song at the same time.

    When someone picks up the book I've been reading and starts reading it themselves. Hey! I'm not done with that!

    Lateness.

    unfortunately, they changed the rules re: roundabut indication, and whilst I agree with you, the law is on their side, not yours

    mostly, I am worried that I can smell myself - I hate the idea of people smelling me more than I hate smelling them

    Nope

    You don't signal on if you're going straight through.
    You signal off (which has always been the case), but not on.
    Only signal on if you're turning left, or signal right if going more than 1/2 way around

    If you are going 'straight' through a roundabout:

    * don't signal as you come up to the roundabout
    * signal left as you pass the exit before the one you wish to take. At some small roundabouts it may not be possible to give three seconds warning, but it is courteous to give as much indication as you can.

    People who can't use roundabouts, or fail to indicate correctly fuck me off too.
    I've had so many arguments with people about what the road rules are. LTSA website is on favourites on my phone and laptop now.
