Things That Annoy Me: MEME

I have been tagged by MummyMatters in this one, and the aim of the game is simple; to tell all about what annoys me, so here goes……

1. The way people talk to their kids. I mean seriously, swearing at a 2year old is not going to do anything but teach them those sort of words are ok. And belittleing kids in public is no form of discipline. I’ve seen kids dragged around town by parents, screaming their heads of yet getting told off because they have no right to be bored! It makes me wonder if people treat their kids like that in public, how do they treat them at home? I mean, don’t get me wrong, my 2 are no angels and they play me up in public, but I would never shout and swear and drag a child about! Argh!!!!

Ok now I’m getting annoyed just thinking about what annoys me so this could be a long one!!!

2. People who don’t drive properly. Ok, I was going to agree with MummyMatters and just say people who don’t indicate, but on second thoughts it’s not just that. People who stay in the middle lane on motorways, they don’t move to let you past and they won’t move out into the third lane to let you pull out, they just sit in the middle! Then there are the people who cut you up, on roundabouts generally, and look at you as if you were the one in the wrong. And the other thing is when people refuse to filter. Come on people if you’re stuck in traffic and there is a cue of traffic trying to merge what real delay will it cause you to let 1 car in, I mean if everyone let 1 car in, everyone would face the same delay. I could go on about driving but I don’t want to bore you! I guess with the driving I do, I notice something every day so it feels worse than it probably is.

3. People who say “basically” all the time. I’m not thick and I’m sure if I can’t handle the details I’ll ask questions! Oh and “obviously”, if it was obvious you wouldn’t need to tell me!!! I find these words most annoying when used by sales people and if they annoy me with these words, no matter how much I want the product, I will buy it else where!

4. So, thinking of sales people has made me think also of customer service. Ok lets not beat around the bush here. These days it’s crap! Not just in shops, but everywhere. Just one example, I took the girls to the zoo today and while there we stopped for lunch in the cafe. When I went in one of the staff members were filling the chocolate on the counter. So I waited patiently then me and B went to choose what we wanted. Whilst deciding, I heard “excuse me” from behind and it was the same woman with more chocolate to fill up. She then pushed past to fill up said chocolate even though I didn’t move. How rude, she is paid to do the job and that includes customer service. You don’t move a customer out the way to fill up some chocolate, you wait! I think I will follow MummyMatters lead here and start writing letters when I am not happy!

Right, I could go on and bore you more but to be honest, the other stuff is not as annoying!!! I’ll save it for the next time I’m tagged! So over to you. I’m passing this one on to:
