    People YELLING in posts. :Bag

    I think a lot of these complaints aren’t petty though. People using mobile phones whilst driving isn’t petty, it’s dangerous and causes accidents and death.

    I didn't realize this had expanded to be about all petty things not just on line stuff.

    You want to know what bugs me? People who drag their feet when they walk. Scuff scuff scuff scuff. Ugh it makes me crazy. Just pick up your damn feet for crying out loud!

    I wish I could but after having two strokes I can't, I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Possibly not. But I doubt the vast majority of people I encounter dragging their feet have had strokes. And (next part said with affection and humor, not snarky) it is you who started this thread inviting us to share our petty annoyances so it's no good trying to take it personally! :)

    I wasn't and wouldn't, I was just making the point not everyone does it on purpose.

    I have a partially blocked toilet (bowl does empty but slowly) and apparently it's not urgent, not having a repair until the end of the month! :mad:

    I guess @lorilu was referring more to the youths of today shuffling about with their jeans exposing most of their underpants.;)
    And while we're on that subject - youths shuffling about with their jeans at half mast !:D

    “Putting the baby down” instead of “putting the baby to bed”.

    yes, you did take it personally based on your reply.

    I am sorry you have suffered strokes of course but it was my impression that this was a light-hearted thread for people to post their petty annoyances and laugh at them. When you start taking it personally and telling people why they shouldn't have this or that petty annoyance....well it opens a whole new can doesn't it? Most of these could be taken apart and be said "well you need to look at it from the other person's point of view" thus the word "petty". But that wasn't the point was it?

    I truly don't mean any disrespect to you at all HP, I think quite a lot of you and would not want to cause you any distress But your reaction to my post doesn't seem quite fair, or in keeping with the spirit of the thread.

    Practically everyone in the building I work in walks like that, dragging their feet, scuffing their shoes. It drives me crazy. Including my boss. :)

    LOUD birbs in spring mode - specifically a particular wood pigeon with a megaphone who starts at the crack of dawn
    Similarly loud human neighbours who start gardening and DIYing with power tools galore as soon as we get some sun and longer days. It's all of them. All day. Shhh.

    My bloody neighbour has starting strimming his lawn 20 minutes ago! It's lovely out yes but it wasn't even 6.30am when he started!
    Didn't wake me or anything, I've been up since 4.30, and Woody and I are just about to go for our walk, but there are many people who aren't up at this time, especially on a Saturday, have a little consideration eh?

    That's thoughtless, how does anyone think it's OK to make so much noise that early in the morning.
