An insignificant thing that has been a niggle for decades: I hate the word 'organic'. (Too near 'orgasm' for my ears, though in some cases, the result is similar... :wink: )

I wish there was a better word, something a little more apposite. We grow food 'conventionally' - ie organically but sadly that word has been effectively hijacked.

Parent's who think it's cool to take their offspring into trendy pubs. The kids don't enjoy it - if they're really that cool a parent they'd be over the park on the swings!

Insurance companies!

I have had to make a household claim for the first time in ten years (then it was flood damage) to have guttering repaired (this time snow damage) and I was shocked that they basically treated me like a bloody criminal. Because I had the work done in Feb and was making a retrospective claim it was like an interogation by the FBI.

Their attitude was a bit like "I know you have been paying your premiums for the last 10 years without making a claim but NOW YOU REALLY WANT TO MAKE A CLAIM? HOW DARE YOU? I don't believe you - I think you are trying to rip us off"

Why do they think we pay these extortionate premiums? It's so when we need to claim we can. So don't sound so f***ing surprised you annoying little beep beep telephone on wheels!

Another thing to watch out for which is in the small print and very underhand is if you make a claim and you are paying by direct debit then they make you pay the next years premium in full up front before they will process the claim. Sneaky b*st*rds!

Well, poking yourself in the eye with a twig is annoying.
It's given me conjunctavitis, and I look like the boy off of Angela's Ashes now! And I can't say that ailment without using a Geordie accent, hence I keep replying to people asking how I am as "Mint" Damm you sycamore twig!

This is soooooo annoying particulalry when its a lorriy and the driver also flashes headlights at you!!

Delivery companies who say after you've paid £7.50 p&p 'we come between 8.30-12.30, you'll need to take the morning off work tomorrow or collect yoursefl from the depot before 7.00pm or we'll rerturn it to the supplier' This happended yesterday with my new garden tiller. Also DHL have changed their name to YODEL on the depot and lorries but not on the We Missed you Card they leave on the mat so when I got to the industrial estate couldn't find DHL.

:banghead:

Now that I've finally read all the way through this thread ... all of the things which have been mentioned.

But, most of all, OH insisting that I told her quite clearly yesterday that I really fancied a jam sponge cake just so that she could justify making a great big fat one she could eat herself. I hate sweet things.

I'm not sure it's a little thing but I hate couriers - all of them. They all demand a surcharge for delivering to the Highlands and, it seems, some of them have realised what a perfect scam this is and have started a surcharge for Wales and Cornwall too. They particularly p!$$ me of when they refer to us as being "non-mainland".

Historically (I've been told) the couriers used to terminate at Inverness and "a man with a van" used to make special deliveries once a week or fortnight. But now every courier firm has the infrastructure to deliver up here - we see one or other of them every day!

We've even been charged the extra by firms in Perth - and not the one in Australia :lol: :lol: :lol:

And sorry if I've mentioned this before :roll:

The noise, supposed to be music, played down the 'phone line when you wait for very slow people to come back to you.
The toad, hiding in my neighbour's downpipe drain, who "beeps" all night, some nights.
The leaves from the same neighbour's eucalyptus tree, which cover my garden and pool, all year round.

But, many more things make me happy - so I can live with the little things that annoy me.

1.Junk mail
2.People who ring you trying to sell you something at all times of day and night
3.T***o's seem to be trying to take over the world.
4.The waste of paper in our local schools and their refusal to look into recycled paper

Ok I have a new annoyance!We moved house 18 mths ago and for the most part its been good!However.....after we had been here for around 3 mths,we noticed our cat(who is 11 years old)was putting on weight.At first we thought maybe it was an age type thing,less active or whatever.We took her to the vet for her annual booster shots,and the vet was horrified after weighing her how much weight she had put on.We assured her she was only fed twice a day!Not long after,the couple who live 2 doors up mentioned our cat(they have 3 themselves),and in convo we mentioned her weight gain.They then announced they had been feeding her(they knew it was our cat and not some stray moggy).Our cat's weight continued to climb and even though we reminded the couple not to feed her,they would pass it off as a joke,and made stupid jokes about us starving her? :angryfire: Consequently our cat ended up with the runs,and £70 at the vets later had to be medicated!!! :banghead: We told them about this but to this day they are still feeding her!So last week our cat same home for tea(yes we do actually feed her!!!)and she had two nasty wounds to the back leg.We took her to the vet who gave her a shot of antibiotics and painkillers,and I jokingly said to my OH "I wonder how long it will take for the neighbours to come and tell us?No sooner had I said that,when yes up they came up the front path carrying our cat.After we greeted(?)them at the door,they went to tell us about OUR cat,to which I replied "Yes she has already been seen by the vet" :angryfire: We met the said neighbours outside on the street yesterday,and they kind of apologised for insinuating we had'nt had her treated,to which I replied "I think we DO KNOW when our cat needs the vet!Personally I think they should bloody mind their own business! :iconbiggrin:
