    After my journey back up the motorway today after attending rehearsal with Burbage Silver, I was rather put out by the amount of roadworks, 50mph speed limits with average speed cameras, and closed slip roads which must have added another 50% onto my journey very annoying!

    I suppose you could call it a pet peeve of mine

    Does anyone else have a pet peeve?

    No not you Rob, people throwing rubbish willy nilly. WHY?
    I spend a lot of my time maintaining gardens on industrial sites and a fair amount of time is spent picking up litter left by incosiderate morons! how hard is it just to pu it in bins provided or take it home and bin it?
    Sorry, your pet peeves thread made me fell a little peeved.

    I've got a couple of recent additions ...

    (1) people not paying attention where they are walking when chatting away on their mobile phones.
    (2) cyclists who use pedestrian pathways and think they own that space. I couldn't believe it when this cyclist told me off for not watching out for him.

    Irresponsible dog owners who dont pick up after their dogs have "been" on the blooming pavement/grass verge!

    Boy this thread could run and run..

    Council tax. It's unfair and we don't get value for money. (In my area anyway).

    ANdrew, thats probably due to us law abiding folk having to pay for those who are not. We won't go down this route, another thread me thinks!!

    Pet Peeves!

    Dog fouling, owners not clearing up

    Car drivers still using their mobiles, several times last week nearly had a pile up with them....

    Dropped litter and spitting!! the foulest of them all, do people know what can be passed on that way! no wonder tb is on the rise!!

    Could carry on for quite a while but I won't. Grumpy old man eh!

    I agree with the rubbish dropping thing, why WHY?!?!?!?! There are plenty of bins why just drop it?! Why?!

    Oh, and people that try to cross a busy road when there's a crossing about 10 feet away! Ridiculous! And then they look at you like you should've stopped for them! USE THE CROSSING!

    What a great thread!

    Drivers turning without indicators!

    When I am crossing a road at a junction I always look for the indicators to tell me if anyone is coming into the road I want to cross. The amount of times I have nearly been run over when crossing the road because a driver hasn't indicated they are turning is unbelievable.

    I find it so annoying when you take the lid off of a yoghurt and it spurts yoghurt at you.

    Second post on this thread! (I'm just getting going!)
    People that dont re-cycle. Travellers who think they are ****** exempt from road tax and insurance... Lying politicians...Binmen who wont empty the bin if the lid isnt completely shut... and lastly (for now) string players who marry banders, get roped into playing perc and pull their faces! (Rant over for now)

    People who pull out in front of you when there's a completely empty road behind you. They then pootle down the road at 35/40 where you were previously doing 60. :mad:

    I don't see why people get so uptight about this. What's the big deal? I just use the right hand lane to overtake them :confused:

    People who turn up to 9am lectures like its a fashion show...while I'm sitting there looking tired/hungover etc....its a lecture people! No one cares what you look like!!

    When people are rude for no apparent reason....used to get this a lot when working in a shop. Doesn't kill you to say please/thank you!

    Blowing water out your instrument really loudly, there's NO NEED for it!! Particularly in solo contests, because you can really hear it. Detracts from the overall performance!

    These are just a few....
