People who pretend to know Irish/poorly translated Irish:

The European Parliament elections are coming up and as usually the candidates are out begging for votes. Some wan got an ad out on the tellly and at the end she says "Go raibh míle maith agat"- 'Thank you (singular) very much'. 

Agat- is singular it's like 'du' in German or 'tu' in French to a group of people. It's wrong, she should have said 'agaibh' you plural. Now generally I wouldn't be a picky-Irish person, you're trying

to speak the language-good on you. However, this woman is a political candidate, why would you be making extremely basic mistakes if you are trying to portray a good image of yourself? Also apparently no-one in her campaign caught her mistake, which is a bit a-hard-days-night-john-7.

 

The idea of 'cool' and people who judge others on whether they are 'cool or not'.

People who don't say 'please' and 'thank-you'.

People who don't cover their months when yawning (it isn't that bad if it's silent but the ones who do the massive YAAAAWWWWWWWWWW that sounds as if a fog-horn is in their month. It makes me want to say mean things a-hard-days-night-ringo-13. Ploppers. 

Bitches (the girls not the female dogs). 

When I go to see a film and: Someone is talking. Someone who is opening food packets as LOUDLY. AS. POSSIBLE. People who use their phones, just shouldn't be allowed into cinemas. 

People who say 'I seen' or 'I done'. Jesus no don't get me started on them a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Public spitting

Celebrity mothers (who think they are qualified in children's health just because they've sired a couple of babies) who influence gullible people not to vaccinate their children (this one irks the living bejaysus out of me. Smallpox is not rampant anymore because of-----) 

People who say 'it's always in the last place you look'. Of course it is why would I look anywhere else for an item I've already found?!?!?

People who say "lol" "OMG" etc. in real-life

 

Phew I think that's enough- for now

When people say the know The Beatles just because they heard of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, or Ringo. Som  people even think Ringo is his real name. Actually earlier this week, my teacher plays pandora in class and Imagine came on. Someone comes up to me and says, hey, it's your favorite band The Beatles. I say it was not, but they just do not know any better.
