People waving their irons about and pointing with them whilst at the table.

Couldn’t find an iron emoji so did a laundry basket instead.

Sticky labels that won't come off

Noise of any kind including ‘music’ in shops.

Apostrophes used wrongly

Drivers who don't indicate or thank you for giving way

Hi nina!

My phone adds apostrophes to all sorts of random words if they happen to end in S.

Drivers behind me who are far too close for comfort!

The word 'gotten'

It’s an old English word, first used in the 4th century. Much nicer than some of the words in common use today I think.

Lillie repetition!
Newatthis has already said it!

So we have to choose a word that hasn’t been mentioned before rather than say what actually annoys us?

Juliet27 Wed 09-Jun-21 17:03:10

Ah yes...I see ‘no repitions’. In that case...

Some rules

Chewbacca Wed 09-Jun-21 17:05:09

grin good one Juliet27!
