    Too-sticky sticky labels that leave residue which is a PITA to clean off.

    The reason I gave up watching them.
    No rhyme, reason nor flow to the episodes.

    Petty password rules.

    If my account gets hacked due to a "weak" password, then it's my fault. Don't dictate how "strong" our password is by making us put a uppercase, number, symbol, square root, fraction and àčçèñtéd letter in it.

    By all means put a strength meter on there, but I HATE it when they force you to make things complicated.

    Out of shape people in tight fitting clothes.
    I don't understand people with pot bellies and rolls of flab wearing skin tight dresses or muscle fit t-shirts. I walked into Staines yesterday afternoon and half the people there were overweight but wearing completely inappropriate clothing.

    Stop it. It's not attractive !

    They probably mistakenly think that their tattoos and piercings somehow negate all those rolls of flab and make them look more attractive!

    Thinking you have a great "annoyance" to share in the thread, then type it out over a couple of lines only to think it's crap and delete the whole thing. What a waste of time that was!

    Yup, the current climate seems to be that it is 'your' problem if a fat girl in a mini skirt turns your stomach.
    Maybe it is, maybe I'm just old skool.

    yeah, fat women in tight leggings... it's hard to think of a more horrible sight...

    why do they do it, do they honestly think it's a good look?

    think I may ask this question on mumsnet... :)

    Trying to get an unbelievably tight screw out of the wall ...... knowing that each time you try and fail you are making it worse. But still going back and trying again, making it worse.

    Repeat.

    Been there and done that :( The last time I did it I managed to shred the screw head so that there was no way to get it out. So I got annoyed and tried to force it out and ended up with a fist sized hole in the plasterboard :facepalm:

    I'm almost there ! Got a bracket in the ceiling for my projector and one screw will not come out ... so tried a different screwdriver .... still wasn't having it. It really messes with my head so much that I think, "I can't give it another go with that screwdriver, will have to get another" and then "this one will work". I'm the same, the head is nearly shredded ....... aaaarrgghhhh !!

    ;)

    The problem I had was that it was one of those fixing things that spread out behind the plasterboard. But mainly the problem was me being a useless ****!

    On an internal one that works OK but on an external wall it's dot and dab so not enough space between the plasterboard and the breezeblock behind it.
