I can't stand.....

Recommended Posts

I don't have a cell phone, hate phones in general, the phone ruled my life at work when I was working.

Just got my snap out, made a mug of tea, just sat down, bloody phone rings, machines broke down, need you up here right away. Throw tea away, put sandwiches back in snap bag...Nasty "orrible" things phones are!!!

Missus gave me a cell phone, just in case anything happened to me while out on the tractor. Gave it a test out, and there was only ONE place on this 80 acres where a cell phone works. So that was the end of my cell phone ownership. Good riddence is what I say.

The trouble in my trade (property maintenance) nowadays is that estate agencies just won't employ you unless you have a mobile. When a call comes into them they phone/text/e-mail you and see that as the end of their responsibilities.

Hmmm... It seems that my "I can't stands" are being aired without my writing a word. It's very comforting to find one is not alone in one's grumps!

I hate the misuse of the apostrophe - green grocer's are the main culprit's 'banana's 70p, potatoe's 50p' or whatever. I remember the great sadly missed Keith Waterhouse was self elected president of the Association for the Abolition of the Aberrant Apostrophe

English language teacher's must be spinning in their grave's

As soon as the sun comes out some people have to play loud music in the garden for all the neighbours to hear !

A 1ltr Vauxhaul Corsa or similar small car being hammered & the driver trying to spin the wheels while pulling away from traffic lights !

I can't stand motorway middle lane drivers. They are converting a 3 lane m'way into a rolling 2 lane road. They should leave jam making to 'Hartley's'
