    This is easy enough.
    post your hate/peeve of the day...try to make it amusing
    I'll start:

    Perambulatus Cacaphonis

    The condition whereby mainly the females of certain sectors of society are capable of perfectly normal walking, running, jumping or climbing; however when descending a staircase sound like a frenzied, iron-shod warhorse galloping over brass pots.
    In a thunderstorm.

    Score by Richard Wagner.

    I saw the title and thought it said "Pet Perve of the Day". How disappointed I was :sigh: :lol:

    Today's pet peeve: the "Estuary Accent". Guaranteed to grate wherever it's heard :grr:

    The girl beside me in clanky high heels who refuses to sit down and pace back and forth. After 45 minutes of hearing those thinks clunking you just want to quote the bus driver from South Park "SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP!!!"

    Noisy technology evangelists.

    @ the aforementioned evangelist: I've seen your cute little digital microphones before. You don't need to sound like a salesman. Also, don't even try to tell me they "sound better" than my conventional (big, but still digital) mics. I have ears. Yours sound like crap, mine actually sounds good. Seriously, when your products are unquestionably inferior, shut up. Kthxbai.

    people who spend 15 minutes in the supermarket queue and when they finally get to their turn spend the next 10 minutes counting the change out of their wallet or hunting for their fricken debit/points card.

    For christ sake people, you know what you bought, you know how you intend to pay.... some people have better things to do than stand behind you in sainsburys all day....

    The amount of "friends" one can suddenly get when there are big nature/science oriented papers due tomorrow. I help my friends, sure. But F-OFF you stupid bitch I never talk to.

    Old people who drive along a 50MPH road at 30.... and then STAY at 30 through a 20mph school zone! They're too scared to actually multitask and look at road signs... so they just look ahead, and make sure they're doing 30.. therefore they're good drivers because they've been driving for 50 years yadda yadda.... I hope they crash.. into something inanimate and non valuable.. no reason for anyone else to suffer... but I hope they crash soon... and hard. Serves them right.

    People not indicating when turning... or better yet overtaking, then turning left in front of the thing they just overtook (usually me)

    Another microwave one:

    I hate my Kenwood microwave it beeps 5 long beeps when the timer has counted. One beep would be perfectly fine, and to make matters worse you can't cancel the beeping, so you have to listen to a good 8seconds of stupid beeping.
