The way I get around it is to only check the Unread and recently updated topics pulldown menu at the top; since the Games are located at the bottom, I can ignore them more easily. It's too confusing to try to navigate the topic list at the bottom of the page now, because then I inadvertently click a topic on Paul's albums, thinking it's a discussion, only to find another game.

That's what I use anyway. My concern is if too many Heal/Hurts are posted, it knocks discussion threads that I care about off that list, so I miss posts

My inner grouch is going to be revealed

Knots (both in hair and shoe laces)

People who walk slow, right in front of me

People who walk side by side blocking the corridor/footpath, whilst walking slowly

People who are walking then stop abruptly, causing me to either hit them or having to stop abruptly also causing a domino effect

Very long queues 

Wanting chocolate but there's no chocolate in the house

People (especially teenage girls) who put on American accents (why I do not know, to sound 'cool' perhaps?)

People who say 'like' too much "and I was like yeah right and she was like yeah I know like..."

Annoying radio/television ads

People who assault their keyboard so when ever their typing it sounds like guns are going off (for example my local library)

Boy racers

People who don't hold the door open for you, if you're only about 4m behind them

People eating food that reeks on public transport 

Ice cream van jingles 

People being surprised by it raining (it's Ireland ffs not the Sahara)

Hold music

Cold toast

Attention seekers

Telemarketers 

Buying a packet of bobbins for my hair on Friday, on Sunday all of them have gone missing paul-mccartney

Chuggers

People complaining on Facebook and another eejit replying back "u ok hun??? xxxx"

Pictures like these

 

And finally

People who complain a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

Yes I am a grumpy bast*rd a-hard-days-night-john-1 a-hard-days-night-george-10

ahdn_paul_06 I really don't like those three. Back in high school these two girls would purposefully block the stairway and walk down at a snails pace so it takes me a while to get down the stairs

Never say never, cause it's never 'never'

Going along with ASJ's post:

  • People who are walking into a shop and then stop in the doorway to check their phone.
  • People who stand in the middle of the escalator all the way blocking those who are wanting to get by.
  • People who stand around in the middle of supermarket aisles chatting or just leave their trolley there blocking the path. 
  • Adults who let their 3 year old kid help pay at the checkout, even worse when its by card.
  • Chatty people at the checkouts who have to have a conversation. Be pleasant and cheerful but don't discuss your neighbours affair, how tasty the Supermarket Extra Special chicken curry is or how soft and durable the luxury toilet paper is.

I hate shopping.

As for the third: Super annoying, and then when you ask if you could please just grab some chicken out of the freezer they're standing in front of, they often get mad as well, as if you're actually the rude one!

As for the last one: That's my mom. She'll just hang up this whole story which probably starts with how good some product is and why and that she really likes it, and then moves over to something completely uninteresting, and I often think ''Why the hell are you even sharing that?'' and then I look at the cashier's face and I know he or she just thinks the same and is completely bored. They don't give a crap. They just want to scan your products, take the money and move on to the next costumer.

I also hate it when I'm grocerie shopping with my mom and we're standing in line for the checkouts and it's almost our turn and then my mom realizes all of a sudden that she forgot something. And then she'll get it and she'll be gone for long and it will be our turn. That's just really awkward.

Another thing I hate, is when people are in a break up or just in a fight and they put the whole thing on Twitter. Seriously, if you're so mature, just sort it out in real life.

One of my many pet peeves (I could type out a list ten times longer than AppleScruff's) is when I jaywalk across a street and I want to walk across at a leisurely pace and not rush, and I can see far, far away perhaps the tiny dot of a car coming -- but by the time I'm only just past halfway across the street, that car has somehow zoomed so fast it's now feeling like it's on my ass and I resent having to hasten my pace even the slightest.

Oh, another pet peeve is when my nose wants to explode in a sneeze, but I am NOT in the mood to sneeze at that moment, thank you very much.  Then I have to spend like 20 seconds stemming the sneeze by putting everything I was doing at that moment on hold until it subsides.

Thanks; this is better (and cheaper) than therapy.blue-meanie

  • People who give incredibly long answers to simple questions. It's akin to asking someone "what time is it?" and they proceed to tell you how to make a clock.
  • People who answer a question with a question.
  • Rules airlines have that were never thought all the way through. On a recent trip, a US Airways employee was going to charge me an extra $50 because my bag exceeded the 50 pound weight limit by two pounds. Seriously believing this could be a real problem if everyone checking a bag exceeded the weight limit, I asked her what my options were in regard to claiming the items left behind. Her answer was (I swear I'm not making this up) "just put the items in your carry-on bag". Ummmm...aren't they the same two pounds? Do those two pounds defy gravity once they reach the cabin? Would my paying the extra $50 somehow defy gravity? Who wrote this rule? Who hired the person who wrote this rule?
  • People who walk right at you, expecting you to move. While shopping one day, this happened to Zag at least four times. To the poor unfortunate SOB who did it to her last, she raised up on every inch of her 4' 11" frame and loudly remarked "Am I  f_ _ king invisible?!?!". God, I love her! 
  • Reality shows. I'd be willing to bet my house that there is a reality show that exploits every pet peeve in this thread. And at this very minute, some mindless sheep is watching the re-runs.

Yeah, that second one's particularly infuriating. Idiots too lazy/too busy playing with their damn phones to bloody MOVE THEIR FEET. There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who escalator-block, and those who complain about it on web forums.

That has happened to me quite a bit. It also peeves me when two or three people are walking your way arrayed side by side as though they own the sidewalk.  One time I saw it coming and instead of stepping widely out of the way like some 2nd caste person in Calcutta as they apparently were expecting me to, I simply barrelled forward and with the whole half of my upper body plowed into the person -- a young woman in her early 20s.  As I kept walking on my merry way I heard her shout from behind some curses, which only made me smile all the more.

HERO!

Here's one that'll make me sound grumpy and ungrateful, but...like, when I'm drinking something (let's say coffee) and I swallow it wrongly and start gasping and coughing to clear my throat, somebody will always ask "Are you all right?" And it's enough of an irritation of just choke the coffee out of my trachea, and now I have to make an extra effort to gasp "Yes, fine thanks, just swallowed my coffee too abruptly like you've heard me do often, and I'll be fine in a minute, nobody's ever drowned in a mouthful of coffee, but I'd recover slightly faster if I weren't forced to expend my temporarily compromised lung power in formulating a verbal reply to your irritating question, thank you!" (Of course, I only speak the first three words of that aloud and think the rest.)

Yeah, I know they're just being polite. But that just makes it more annoying. (I promise that if any of these well-intentioned folks are around to Heimlich me if I should happen to choke on a piece of food, I'll never complain again. I promise.)

There was a slug on my bed today, how the hell it got there the Lord only knows but I know I'll have a nightmare of slugs infesting my bed tonight :/

Which leads to ASJ's Pet Peeve #424

Insects- pretty much all kinds, spiders, butterflies (they scare the living s- out of me, one time I was reading my brand new Harry Potter book outside in the sun and a butterfly landed on the book, I screamed and shut the book on the butterfly leaving a squashed butterfly's innards on the pages of my book. Yeah I threw it out and bought a new one. I was about 7 ok, not like I would do that now or anything ahdn_paul_02a-hard-days-night-paul-4ahdn_paul_02. Bees and wasps don't really bother me that much surprisingly.

 

I was buying some vitamins today on recommendation by a lot of people and while I was queuing a woman in front of me turned around and said "Oh *the thing I got* what are you getting that for? Is it any good?" WHO THE HELL DOES THAT?!?!

 

When I'm abroad and trying to practice a different language and the person insists on speaking to me in English, I give them my dead-pan look a-hard-days-night-ringo-11 and say "I only speak Irish" teeheehee a-hard-days-night-george-9

 

Trying to watch things online and they keep freezing and always on the key moments a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Also that this George smiley looks so creepy >>>>ahdn_george_06 you can just imagine him thinking "I'm imagining you naked"  paul-mccartneypaul-mccartneypaul-mccartney

^ The majority of insects I'm grand with but things that move rapidly and fly I'm generally a bit weary of. There is a lot of beetles around my house atm and I have not problem with them, so beetles are on the good list I guess
