Annoying: "This video is not available in your country." |
Infuriating: "Skipped to the next available video."

When someone says "I ll get back with ya" and they never do and you think you know when they are saying it that they really were not serious but you're not 100% sure so you can't say I don t really think you mean that but then they never do so you lost your chance to say "I don t really think you mean that" or "why don t you just say nothing at all instaed of making a statement that is disingenuous". But then if you knew where they were you could call them up or go there and bring closure to the situation but then that would be time consuming so it just ends up being one of those little things that annoy you.|

Sometimes people do "get back" and you wonder why they bothered. I've just bought an exceptionally good black cotton t-shirt in my least favourite local supermarket, the one which begins with S and ends with bury. I could only find black ones for sale, but would like to buy some coloured versions too. No point asking at the customer service desk, which is usually one frazzled employee faced with a queue of a dozen disgruntled shoppers, so I waited till I got home and rang the phone number optimistically labelled Customer Careline. "What other colours does it come in?" |
I spoke to a grindingly cheerful young man, who told me that he wouldn't have that information on his system, but the Customer Service Team would know, and he would phone me back. At last, the message: he has an answer, so would I please ring him, on this extension, or any of his colleagues on this number between these hours.
So I rang, and spent five minutes ploughing through their outgoing messages and press this button and listen to some more and press another button, until I heard a human voice. She found my file, on which he had recorded my query, and the answer:
"It only comes in black."
itunes? sounds a bit modern to me! :p

Small but annoying things..|
Bags of pre-grated cheese in the supermarket.
(And the TV ads for this product that say "grated for your convenience")
I mean Seriously...how hard is it to grate your own cheese; how lazy must you be if you can't be bothered?! Sheesh!

Oh, and that goes for cheese slices too. |

I hate it when people point out every single thing you said that was only slighty wrong and makes a big deal out of it. It's like...leave me alone and get a life. I also hate it when you put in your point of view while not saying or implying that the person is wrong and when they find out that they were right they say in a very snotty way..."I told you so.." ARG|

I hate it when someone leaves the cupboard open after getting a dish or whatever out of it. It makes the whole room look disheveled and unkempt and it takes like, a quarter of a second to simply give the door a push shut when you're done. |

Not to mention (but I will!) that it's painful, when you walk in, and BAM! The door hits you in the head.|

Clicking a quiz on TV (or people or music or any other subject) and discovering that it's exclusively about American TV, or people or music... |
But perhaps not as bad as hitting your head on a cupboard door when you were the one who left it open.

When a quiz says easy and you don t know anything about it. Like Mandarin Chinese and is classified easy and so I think sure it s easy if you know it. If you don t know it isn t even hard, it's impossible. So you either guess or don t take it, or if you do take it you might learn a word or two in case you go to Mandarin China.|

I just hate the people who tell big lies and the people who boast a lot like my friend. She is nice but at times she boasts a lot.|

I just took a look at the thread "What badges are you working on". Surprise, suprise - a bunch of people who have posted basically nothing everywhere and a minute apart all said they are working on the 'Chatterbox' badge...grrr.|
Reply #434. Mar 29 09, 12:01 PM
How can you "work on" the chatterbox badge? It's like practising breathing. |
Reply #435. Mar 29 09, 4:42 PM
Exactly, Lesley. You CAN work on it by just going through every single thread in each category and posting 3 words, as you know. I'm still glad I didn't know there was a badge and we still had 'real' topics we could discuss when I was surprised at receiving it. I'm also glad the Chats got a thorough cleaning and very old, very inane topics can't be brought back to the front anymore - now just the 'new inane' ones can...;)|
Reply #436. Mar 29 09, 6:01 PM
Me too, Sandy - I remember saying I'd rather not have it, because people might think I was a chatterbox. [blush] Shame there are no longer any "real" topics to bring up. What happens when we've said everything there is to say about chocolate and kittens and Harry Potter? |

Don t forget Chuck Norris but then could we ever say enough about Chuck? You be the judge.
Reply #438. Mar 29 09, 7:29 PM
I reckon "Chuck Norris does not blend" just about covers it. |
Could we do beer, or is that too adult?

Constant carping about football v soccer - basically who gives a toss.|
supermarket check-outs for baskets which are used by those with a whole trolley load of shopping - shops are so desperate for their piece of the market at the moment, they don't challenge the selfish blighters.
