...not understand that to be late is an abuse of the other persons time.
...watch horses die in jump races.
...place cycles, wheelchairs or luggage in the exit doorway of a train.
...somehow always blame the police no matter how horrific the crime.
...root around in a loaded handbag for a purse AFTER loading their Asda trolley at the checkout.

I'm probably one of those that stop at the top of the escalator, for the simple reason that I hate going down them :smt001 Need to pluck up the courage to get on, so be patient :smt002 No problem going up the escalators and there are not always stairs, especially on London Underground. And what are "normal" people? And I don't congregate in a supermarket - can't wait to get in, do the shopping and get out again :smt001
You get the 'not guilty' verdict - I was talking about going up when the objects of my hate stop-dead after getting off with the others behind them approaching with nowhere to go!

.. and queue for 5, 10 minutes etc in a car park to pay but only start looking for their ticket and money when they get to the machine.

Most of mine appear above. I'll just add

...go into a pub, knowing they are going into a pub, get to the bar and, when asked what they would like to drink say; "Ummm... " as though the idea that drinking something might be involved has come as a startling revelation. (I don't mind the "What real ale/cider/gin/wine have they got?" question it's the starting from scratch "Oh - a drink?" question.
