    Similar to @Tiamolly123, people who decide to have a chat and block the pavement. Fair enough, you're walking your dog, you see a chum, you want to catch up. Move somewhere that's not blocking other people's way or be aware that others might want to use the path and move aside when they want to pass!

    I live in an old area of a small town where the pavements are quite skinny and the roads are twisty and get annoyed when forced to walk in the road because someone's so caught up in their chat that they can't see someone wants to walk by. I don't get road rage as I don't have a car, but believe me, there are as many inconsiderate pedestrians as there are drivers :))

    Haha no need to apologise! I don't stand near people if I can help it XD

    But the people I do wanna put in the room is the ones who stand next to you (or are nowhere near you) when you're smoking outside and then complain about it and cough super loudly :))

    That's me :)) But ONLY if it's a bona fide non-smoking place (I'm too timid to tell people to stop, but passive-aggressive enough to be a coughing nuisance!). Bus stop shelters and train stations are non-smoking, and I use them often. I don't mind if I can't smell/taste it, i.e. they're far enough away, but it's generally a personal space issue - I don't want to be near enough to an actual person to taste the inside of their mouth (I find vape trails even worse). The other day a guy was smoking at the station and a train man asked him to stop or leave. The guy was like 'You can't tell me what to do!' and the train man was all 'Yes I can', called for backup(!) and him and THREE other platform men escorted the guy out of the station! I love the fact I live in such an unremarkable area that this 'crime' was dealt with with appropriate severity :))

    People who see you waiting patiently for a car to reverse out of a parking space and then drive at full speed the wrong way round the car park to drive into that very space while you watch in disbelief. And no - I did not take to swearing at full volume, hitting the horn or throwing my hands up in dramatic disbelief - that would have been just childish :whistle::inn::whistle:

    People who leave a shop and stop dead just outside the doors, usually to look around or to fuss with bags. And because I'm behind them, I bump in to them.

    I also cannot stand any form of unnessessary fussing for no reason...

    I'm like that. My OH's mum is a fusser, a huge fusser. Everytime she visits... without fail... she will grab my hair! I hate it and last time she did it I had just got out the shower and she felt the need to complain that it was all wet... well I have just had a shower duh!

    Let me see...I didn't look through all the pages so I hope I don't repost. I would put...the "not my problem" people. Y'know, they think they can stop caring about the environment because everyone else does it too. Also, people who find out you're vegetarian and are like "but meat is delicious! How can you live without bacon?!" I don't wish to eat a dead pig, guys. And also people who force opinions on others- you know when someone is certain that they're right and everyone else is wrong? Awful.
    I can't pick just one thing:(

    People who hold the door for you when you are about 15+ meters away! Causing the awkwardness of you having to run or have them stood there waiting

    People who queue behind you at a supermarket checkout when there's plenty of other checkouts free. It makes me feel rushed, and I'm quite a slow, methodical packer (I don't have a car so can't just bung it in a trolley and be off; I have my 'thing' with my rucksack and various special bags). Now, I'm sure some of these people don't mind, they're in no rush, but I can't understand why anyone wouldn't go to an empty till - are we that obsessed with queuing?!? Worse is when they give a 'passive' tut or sigh. GO TO AN EMPTY TILL, ORGANISE YOUR TIME BETTER TO HAVE MORE TIME IN THE SHOP, OR EVEN BETTER, USE A SELF-SERVICE TILL YOU IMPATIENT MEATHEAD!

    I hate feeling/being rushed :))

    :) In all honesty, that's genetic, the British Queuing Instinct.

    People moaning about busses. Specifically, old people for whom the busses are FREE, who have all day to get where they're going, and who don't realise the effects of TRAFFIC on transport (possibly because the last time they drove there were only 4 cars on the road). The bus is 10 minutes late, it's doing a 60 mile round journey along busy roads, it is not a catastrophe, do not berate the driver as it's not like he just decided to be late through his own laziness, busses are not immune to traffic, they cannot just extend wings and soar over the jams!

    Or... you coul pay the concessionary train fare of a massive £2.85 and get there direct in 9 minutes... but then there'd be nothing to moan about :))
