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

All that get to know the person garbage on tv, especially quizzes. I do not care where they come from, how many pets they have, how long they have been married, how they plan to spend any potential winnings, their family history from the 15th Century onwards, where they go for their weekend break or any other nonsense - just get on with the show.

Wheel of Fortune is especially bad about that- "I've been married to my high school sweetheart David for 23 years, and we have 7 wonderful kids and 2 amazing grandkids! And we live in a three story house in Fargo, North Dakota! David works for UPS and I run my own dog grooming business!" Maybe not to that degree, but some get close to that kind of ridiculousness. Just once I want someone to say "I sniff glue and cook meth in my basement, Pat." Let's see how Pat Sajak responds to that one.

I'd be one of those cutthroat competitors who'd do James Brown splits upon winning a trip to Bahamas and would probably punch my fellow contestant in the ear if they solved the puzzle after I hit bankrupt. Plus I'd hit on Vanna. It'd be interesting, that's for sure.

People who say, "let me aks you something". It's only 3 letters - how do you screw that up?

So I don't go to Tescos then? :P

Saying "Are you going to Tesco later?" sounds a bit strange to me

Idiots on quiz's.

You have a set time to get the questions right/solve the puzzle so dont stand there for an age having a discussion about whatever pops into your head whilst doing nothing and have a think before you give an answer, dont just utter syllables in the vague hope a word will form that might be correct.

Cool

I'm from Mississippi. I use Belks because just sounds strange to me to say: "I went Belk or I'm going to Belk". On the other hand, when saying Sonics or even more so with shrimps it sounds strange.

That took me some time to get right when I started writing/typing/speaking in English. In Dutch it's not plural either, so I thought it was pretty strange.

Oh that's something that annoys me: when people tweet or post a status in English with a lot of mistakes in it. If you can't speak English, then don't. You'll only look like an idiot.

@Linde @AppleScruffJunior It's not plural. It's like if I was going to see Linde tonight, and I was asked where I was going, I wouldn't say "I'm going to Linde", but rather "I'm going to Linde's". So ASJ doesn't go to "Tescos" but rather "Tesco's". Unfortunately, when it comes to companies, we tend to forget the apostrophe before the S.

WOOHOO SAY YES TO MICHIGAN! I've never left Ontario, but I've lived in THREE cities that were all right on the Michigan border! Upper and lower peninsulas both.

That The Beatles never recorded 'Where Have You Been (All Of My Life)' properly. I love the song and the bootleg Star Club version but if it was properly recorded it would definitely be up there in my top 20 (at least) of favourite Beatles songs. The Gerry and the Pacemakers cover is the closest to the way The Beatles sang it but it's not the same :(

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.
