 Little things that make you mad….
Topic Originator: EEP  
Date:   Fri 27 Aug 18:57

On my way home tonight(after a bad day) driving down the road with no other car in site this woman presses the button on the crossing and I have to stop like a gimp…. WTF would you do this? And before anyone starts she looked mid 30’s with no problems visible😅 Surely she could look to see if there was loads of traffic.

My kids seem to think the house should have lights on 24/7 even during the day🤷🏻‍♂️ That drives me insane!

People who don't indicate

People that don't acknowledge when you flash them through

People that walk down the path , speaking on their phone through loud speaker

Cyclists who ride 3 or 4 wide

Damn EEP , I was in a good mood 5 minutes ago

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

People in noisy cars, especially middle-aged men. No need.

People who enjoy tailgating. For whatever reason it is almost always a white Mini driven by a daft wee girl with serious road rage.

People who park beside you in an empty car park.

That first exit/entrance at the Duloch Tesco which has witnessed more close shaves than a Turkish barber.

People who don't indicate then turn off leaving you looking like an idiot.

People who do indicate but indicate the wrong way.

Away from cars:

People who say "Oh did ye aye?"

Glaswegians who take the pee out of any accent that isn't Glaswegian

People who declare Scotland as a hole yet probably haven't ever left Airdrie.

People who have undiagnosed conditions that are definitely made up or exaggerated to avoid doing things. Everyone knows someone like this. "Oh, I can't be doing that. Not with my knees/back/feet/ankles".

Who is Ken? Only in Fife.
Brought up in the west coast and “but” at the end of a sentence: so you wait for the next part of the sentence that never comes but…..
Not really annoyances but definitely confuse our southern neeburs, which is highly entertaining.
All the above about cars. That is annoying.

They say ken in the Lothians and Ayrshire too. Another example of the weegies who dinna ken there's a whole lot more to Scotland than Springburn.

With the indicating haters I bought a mondeo and the indicators were wired the wrong way….. so my drive home was to say a lot of folk going mental and I didn’t have a clue😅

When you go to a job and the customer has already looked on YouTube to how the job should be done……. Does my man moobs in when their standing over watching you🤷🏻‍♂️

As my old dad says, when a driver indicates it only proves the indicator works, not that the driver intends to turn that way.

I literally squeezed past a car that had parked on the pavement at the bowling club Arthur street yesterday. As I did I inadvertently hit the car with my zip. The driver was still in the car and got out to give me what for?!?! That really gets my goat. What if I had a buggy or was disabled?

One of our neighbours friends doesn't just park on the pavement, she parks the entire car on the pavement. I'll quite happily "accidentally" walk through their garden with the dog each time she does it.

Forgot one - people who laugh loudly. It's not that funny. Shut it.

The driver of the private-hire taxi who who wound down his window and threw his empty coffee cup on to the road when I as looking out of my window today. Disgusting behaviour; do folk like that think it would be OK if everyone acted like them?

Driving:
People who overtake and then slow down to less than you were doing.

People who don't understand that mini-roundabouts are roundabouts, not t-junctions.

Other:
Glaswegians People who take offence when you say something positive about somewhere other than Glasgow else and leap to the defence with examples of how great Glasgow their place is.

Midges.

Car drivers who get angry that as a cyclist, you’re even on the road and give no room / respect to their fellow road user …and worse complain if your not in single file - which when you’re in a group is the safest way to be (and in a large group the easiest overtake for the car driver - as the spread is much smaller)

People who feel the need to be really loud on the way home after a night out… the person you’re talking to is still only two feet away!

Dogs let out that just bark and bark

People who claim to be an animal lover but then will happily put them in their oven (obviously only love the cute ones)

People who walk across my front garden to the door rather than using the path (which would take them about 10 seconds longer)

Cyclists riding two abreast are generally absolute roasters who don't know the code. They should only be two abreast (never more) and should only be two abreast where safe to do so. So not on country roads, going round bends, busy roads etc.

Drivers are just as bad or worse though. As mentioned, these absolute idiots who slow down for the bridge. Stop it.

I know how this may sound but in my experience people who tailgate the most are always always female. Anyway…

People who think they “own” their own spaces in the street if they’re outside their houses.
People who throw rubbish out their vehicle windows.
Competitive drivers. Get a grip!
Charity folk who try to stop you when you’re walking down the street.
Loud people.

To be honest, most of the things that bother me are driving related. People are dumb, ignorant and generally just total ring pieces.

Own their own spaces, yip I have a friend that is totally all this. He has a garage and a driveway but also insists on parking outside on the street in ‘his space’😡

For all those car drivers who think we should only cycle behind each other - worth a watch

Driving ones are pretty well covered so I`ll go with:
People who support football teams for glory hunting reasons. Usually got no connection to the city and watch games in the pub with replica kit on.
Fly tippers. Parts of the countryside ruined due to selfish people.
Pot holes on roads and time it takes to repair them.
People who think Scotland wouldn`t survive as an independent country.
Reality TV shows like Love Island and I`m a celebrity.
Dogs put in the garden to park constantly. Here`s an idea. If you`ve got a Dog try walking it.

People,(smokers) who think the ground is their ashtray or rubbish bin, and just flick their fag butts anywhere they like, or just tips the ashtray out the car window, absolute filthy habit. Does my head in.
