One thing that is small and anoying about my sister is when sI ask her to lead me ( I can't see too well and in unfimiliar surroundings, I hold a person's elbow) , she gets annoyed by it. She starts saying that I'm anoying and quite framnkly it aggravates me. I ask my parents' or boyfriend to lead e and they just do it without making a big deal out of it. This is wy I love them so much.|

I know that if I become a Gold Member again, I can avoid the ads on this site, but do any of you know how to get rid of the annoying "Smileys" that keep saying Helloooo! everytime I happen to scroll across the top of my screen?|
They make me cringe!

Web pages which talk to you without warning. Grrr. |
If I click a news link on my home page, there's an evens chance that it will be accompanied by a video clip. There's no way of telling in advance, so I've stopped clicking them now.
I've just clicked a link for a free sample - and I know that there's no such thing as a free anything - and I hear "Hallo - my name's Joan, and I want to tell you about..." Aargh! No! I don't want to hear! Close page quickly, back out of article... I suppose the answer is to turn the sound off if I enter an unfamiliar site. Try remembering!
Trigger - money is the answer to most questions. I think it's the simple answer to this one as well.

Annoying? Weather forecasts that seem to cover almost every scenario for the day. "Partly cloudy with a chance of sunshine, sporadic showers, possibly changing to thuderstorms with lightning and high winds, cooling later in the day with the risk of light snow."|
Off to work now, but I need to find my sun hat, umbrella, sandals, raincoat, boots, mittens and scarf. Oh, and should I drive the 4wd?
Reply #504. Jul 30 09, 3:54 PM
Yes, take the 4wd, open the sun roof and remember to pack the snow chains and aluminium blanket. |
Our beloved and esteemed Meteorological Office is now bleating about how hard it is to make accurate predictions 7 or 12 days in advance. The answer to that is that more and more people are now asking: "If you can't predict the weather next week, why should we take you seriously when you predict the weather in 50 years?"

If you live in Melbourne, you're pretty well equipped. Always an umbrella and cardigan in the bag!|
What annoys me is people taking my things without asking. Of course I will give it to them. IF they ask.

I totally agree about webpages that play videos without warning! Happened to me at work the other day! Must remember to mute...|

I hate it when I would say "yeah" and the other person would say "ok." I have no clue why though.|

Ok the number one thing on my small but annoying list is my little brother! Lol also alarm clocks when they wake you up in the morning. And ummmmmmmmmmm I can't remember what I was going to type type. Thats all that I can think of right now so sorry bye.|

Main one would be people who dont know how to check their spelling on things. Then some insects that annoy me.|

Moths and people who keep trying to convince you after you have agreed with them... 'yes, you're right, now could you lecture me on this very point for a while please?'|

flys coming around when I am on a picnic. The telephone rining when I'm eating my dinner or watching a good movie.(that is why I have to record everything)|
Reply #512. Aug 13 09, 12:19 AM
Worse:- the telephone ringing just as you've started playing a quiz on here! Then they wonder why you're so keen to get rid of them!|

ALWAYS coming second in the Sci-Tech easy quiz and not getting the speed demon badge. It's only a badge, but still...|
Reply #514. Aug 13 09, 2:46 AM
Actually getting all 15 of the Word Wizard questions correct and then being pipped for first place at the last minute by someone with the badge already... will keep on persevering, but sooooo frustrating.|

Why do you have to pick the phone up, just because it rings? |
Worst of all must be abandoning a quiz, a good film, a delicious meal, anything you're enjoying, and answering the phone just to hear "This is a recorded message - do you have debts?..." or "This is your phone company, energy company, think of a company, and I'd like to talk to you about how we can help you save money..." or silence, because you've been rung by an automatic dialler, and there was nobody at their end to talk to you when you answered.
I have my phone barred to withheld numbers, which stops a lot of the dross getting through, although it doesn't seem to have much effect on calls from overseas, but it helps. And I have caller ID. If I see it's the same number with a million zeros, that's been ringing at 3pm every day for four months, I will happily ignore it.
If I've settled down with a good meal, and a programme I've been looking forward to watching, and it's that woman who talks about herself for an hour and a half without listening or drawing breath, I'll let it ring. If she leaves a message, I shall ring her back. If she doesn't, it can't have been that important. Meanwhile, I'm really enjoying my meal and my viewing, and my blood pressure hasn't gone up at all!

Irresponsible management. This morning one of my co-workers called in sick but I never heard anything from the manager she spoke to. I will discuss this with the manager tomorrow morning.|

Most of the new programs on TV annoy me. Very few of them are any good |

Obviously fraudulent 'Please give us your clothes' charity stickers through the letterbox. I have so many of them I'm starting to suspect they can multiply. |
Four in the door. Since yesterday.
One of them tells me the clothes are going to 'Rowonda' - I suspect they were trying for Rwanda but can't be sure.
I'm considering staying up late to see if I can catch those stickers multiplying :)

Through my letterbox this afternoon was a postcard from Siemens telling me that they called to read the meter but that I wasn't in. |
I have a security system which beeps when anyone is on the premises for longer than a few seconds. I also have a doorknocker and a doorbell, both of which I can hear all over the house. And I've been in all day. I can only assume that some idiot, who is being paid by Siemens to do a job (ha!), ran up the path, thrust the card into the letterbox, and ran out again.
It says that they will call again tomorrow, in the morning this time. Perhaps they will be able to tell me why it's too much trouble to ring a doorbell but not too much trouble to make a second visit.
