RANDOM THINGS YOU HATE

The results days being discussed all day (GCSEs, BTECs, T-Levels, A-Levels) - in particular them showing the students with mostly A*s, distinctions, or certain personalities just showing off getting their results on TV. Just take the envelope home and celebrate quietly if it's good...

I opened my SATs at school, but took them home for GCSEs and, A-Levels - mine were teacher-assessed, like the ones who got their results today. Exceptional at exams ≠ student who is actually intelligent.

I was stuck listening to Radio 1 in the car for 6 hours and they kept banging on about it. Felt for all the kids that gave a shit and didn't get the grades they wanted/needed.
 
Clicking on one ad on Facebook/Instagram and then getting nothing but adverts for the same product from different advertisers for weeks. Especially when you click on something by accident.
 
When a young girl has died and the parents/relatives make a public statement (sad of course :( )
The issue is when they mention things the girl never got to experience/they never got to see: 'boyfriends, first kiss, getting married, having kids'... :gross:
There are way better and more universal milestones they could've mentioned, but these still seem to be prioritised in society today. I might never experience any of that - so? 🙄
 
Yeah, if a 50 year old dies and they haven’t got married or had kids, is the same thing mentioned?
Exactly, no, not the first thing anyway, it's more about other good contributions by that point. It's silly that for a young-ish person those are considered missed opportunities.
By not having kids, it's technically preventing overpopulation for the future, but that's not celebrated 😅
 
On a human level, I understand it. Saying they will never get a chance to pay their first gas bill, rent bill, bounce a direct debit or go for their first STI test doesn't carry the same emotional weight.

I'd probably say partner rather than boyfriend, but in terms of thwarted possibilities I'd say the same for a missing girl or boy.

I guess the question is would they say the same for a boy, or list his life being cut short of possibilities in terms of profession or achievements outside of family.
 
More moaning about slow people, but I’m not sure if this is just a “polite British” thing. I went to a comedy festival yesterday and there was the typical bottle-neck of slow people trying to exit, despite there actually being plenty of space to walk around, but so many idiots strolling at a glacial pace like it’s a nice sunny afternoon with no sense of urgency, despite it being 10:30pm on a Sunday.

Then when you actually realise what happened to cause this - just one or two people with mobility issues being slow, which is NOT THEIR FAULT, but the people directly behind them seemingly being too polite to just overtake them. I’m sure the old man with the zimmer frame and the woman with the walking stick really wouldn’t mind people passing them, but then as soon as it piles up, suddenly there’s a good 1,000+ people walking at half a mile an hour :manson:

This drives me crazy. So I make my dissatisfaction audible by doing the chhh...oooof sound of extreme annoyance ->
to signify am going to overtake you all before I do.
 
Pelican crossings that take forever to turn the lights red and when they do, it's been so long that the road is now clear. WHAT'S THE BLOODY POINT?
 
I don't notice that at all- but I need gays who don't have a lot of self esteem (let's face it, it's usually the cubs and bears) to make that kind of "shrug" face in photos.

Which probably shows the differencein the gays we're looking at!
LEAVE BEAR FACE ALONE!

Queueing for shops. When did this become a thing?

The shop will be half empty yet there is a line and a doorman. It’s like somebody decided to press the ‘start hype now’ button.

Obviously I shop exclusively at Home Bargains so it doesn’t impact me personally.
