Gripes Published Recently
Damaged goods on the shelf in the supermarket
It's not the first time I've ended up with a box of fresh orange juice but no plastic straw to push in the top. Why don't the staff clear away this stuff and either bin it, or sell it at a reduced price? They should definitely be removed though!
Teachers returning to work after absence due to illness
I have a general gripe about recruitment agencies and the lack of support from the Department of Education and TDA for teachers who have been out of the profession for a couple of years.
Beep! Beep! Read this you road raged road hogs
If, like me, you are a London resident you know that you don't just get behind the wheel to drive to work, arriving fresh faced and relaxed after a comfortable drive to start the day ahead. Instead, you brave the battlefields to get to work...
Stupid sayings that don't make any sense
Don't even get me started on stupid sayings. They are annoying, pointless and completely illogical. I think we should put a ban on all stupid sayings, perhaps then it would be easier for people to understand one another.
Commuters who dither at ticket machines
Every day on a busy commuter route on the trains I am met with unmentionable numbers of people that think a good thing to do is to stand right in front of the ticket barriers, at which point they begin to look for their ticket!
The Facebook generation think they know it all
I'm absolutely fuming right now having read a post online that's entitled 'When I see my parents start to type in 'www'. The Facebook generation think they're so smart, in fact they think THEY invented the Internet!
Lorry drivers deliberately blocking outside lanes
What a complete irritation it is to have to sit behind HGV drivers who have appointed themselves as gatekeepers of the road on the approach to a closed-off lane on dual carriageways and motorways.
Drivers who push in at the front of a queue of traffic
We're all in a hurry to get somewhere during the rush hour, for example going to work, dropping the kids off at school, shopping etc. But why do some drivers think their journey is more important than yours?
Ordinary people treated like criminals while villains go free
It seems to me that if only the people in power spent their time trying to sort out REAL problems instead of upsetting decent folk who often can't keep track of all the current bureaucracy, Britain might again be a decent place to live.
Flashing adverts on websites are a distraction
I understand that in today's competitive business environment, selling your product is important. And advertising helps to do that. Recently, though, I've noticed that more and more companies are using flashing ads.
