    People still say it if they use BIN.

    Also, people don't come out of sothebys and say 'I won this Van Gough in an auction!' :rolleyes:

    People trying to do something while talking on their mobile. E.g. attempting to go through a supermarket checkout, but they must have a 'he said she said then he said which was well out of order then she was a bit funny' phone conversation. They can't perform the simplest task - e.g. finding their purse in the handbag takes an age while they stare into space yacking away - it hasn't suddenly become bottomless!!

    Why people think it's okay to talk on the phone a drive I'll never know.

    Drivers who upon entering a public car park (typically at shopping centres) simply must try and get a space nearest the entrance, rather than heading straight for the far end of the car park whereby there are plenty of spaces. They would sooner stop near the entrance and await someone to evacuate their space, causing a huge tailback whilst we all sit behind them.

    SWMBO does this and it drives me wild!

    "Right, so you want to park within a gnats nutsack of the entrance to the shopping centre, so you don't have to walk too far? But you will then walk about 32 miles, over the next 8 hours dragging me into every shop? EH?"

    Meerkats. They come out of nowhere and suddenly they're everyone's favourite animal - what the **** is that all about? When I was a kid there was no such thing as meerkats, now they're everywhere. Give me a good raccoon or squirrel any day. Hell even a stoat.

    I think meerkats would call that a somewhat kav-centric view :)

    Seriously though, they were never on any wildlife programmes, or used in ads, or in children's books as "animals of the jungle", nor were they in zoos or the like 20-25 years ago. I think they were created in the 90s when someone mated a squirrel and a raccoon. Like labradoodles.

    Course they were! I remember being greatly amused at how they stood up and scanned the area.

    Admittedly there weren't any stuffed toys floating around or spectacle wearing versions flogging insurance, but they definitely made their TV debut well before Aleksander and co.
