The idiots who try to get me to cut my hair!
The silly little cow who when i said I'd do it for the Matt Hampson Trust said "Do it for a REAL Charity" :smt013
My head of sixth form who banned me from the common room when I proceeded into a rant to the little cow who dismissed the Matt Hampson trust! :smt013 :smt013
The stupid BMW driver who tried to knock me off my bike as they came extremely close to me doing high speeds with an empty piece of road on the oppisite side!!

Sorry, not been a good day for me!

When holding the door open for someone, they give you a cheerful “thanks” but don’t take the door from you. Leaving you to stand like a plonker, holding the door open, waiting for the next person rather than slamming it into their face.

I'm glad you posted that. I thought it was just me that found that annoying!

I would also back up the rant about the tw*t drivers that overtake a long queue before trying to cut into it at the last minute.

They are obviously unaware of the mayhem they are causing. I've seen petrol tankers doing 60 mph down the M1 having to lock all brakes becuase some t*sser in a BMW has stopped in their lane and is trying to squeeze into a non-existant gap in the M69 queue.

People who don't thank you when you open a door for them. (Usually old folk). I always shout THANKYOU after them.

All BMW drivers. They should be shot along with all children.

People who put a toilet roll up with the flap at the back. Grrrrrrrrrr!

Now come on folks, we are not all bad you know :smt022

Even Clarkson has started to say not so nasty things about us.

My BMW is my pride and joy and so I wouldn't dream of driving it in a manner that might get it damaged!!

Besides, I am a really nice person, just ask my mum, she loves me :smt054

Good call madoqua. There used to be a lady in my office who wouldn't thank me for holding doors open (I hold doors open for everyone) for her, but worse than that, she wouldn't even look at you or acknowledge you. I took to making a very visible show of not holding the door open for her whenever I was in that situation.

Manners cost very little.

The driver of the white pick up, who didnt secure his load correctly, allowing it to come off and hit me off my motorbike - in the outside lane of the M4 whilst driving at 70mph in rush hour traffic.

Edit: forgot to thank him for not stopping

This is totally a mental thing, but I hate following a car transporter as it's about to go under a motorway bridge.

I know full well that they check the height of these things, but it always looks as though the highest vehicle is definitely going to clip the underside of the bridge and come hurtling down on top of me.

Hope you are okay, Tircoeds? And hope you got his registration and reported him!

People who cold call at the door and start by wishing you a happy Saturday. It was happy (watching rugby with a nice cup of coffee) until you came knocking wanting to talk about power and energy usage!

Okay - I have come in on this thread a bit late, but here goes:

1. People who smoke on buses - IT'S ILLEGAL! Is your addiction that bad that you can't wait until you get off?

2. Mobile phones with speakers - not just on buses, but anywhere!

3. People who stop you in the street to sell you something when all you want to do is spend money somewhere else.

4. Spiders

5. Wasps (both varieties)

6. Unnecessary swearing

7. Wrongly used apostrophes

That will do as a start - as I don't drive, I have no motorway rants.

What about the the plans of the Birmingham City Council?

On the news, I heard that they were planning to remove all apostrophes from all road signs.

How ridiculous is that?!
