This is a question The Little Things

'Hullo chaps', bellows Richard McBeef, of 'the internet' fame. My boss has managed to make 'shown' into a two syllable word and it drives me round the fucking bend. Tell us about the little things that people around you do, which annoy you for more than they rationally should. Vent your spleen.

People who say they "make" food
Clive, from opposite the YMCA, doesn't "make" the noodles. He cooks the noodles. Doris, from number 34, who works in the noodle factory, makes the noodles.

I hear someone say "I'm making pasta", and I'm thinking, wow, there's a frood who has a proper rolling-out-thin device, and possibly even a mill. But no. The daft chump has just managed to boil some water all by himself.

It's quite clear: the words are spelt differently, and they mean different things.

And nobody fucking fixes the fucking noodles. They weren't broken.

Room with a view
People who call recent Oscar-nominated tearjerker and rather splendid film "Room", "The Room". I have seen "Room" and "The Room". One is one of the best films of the last ten years, the other is possibly the worse film ever made. You can decide which is which yourself, while Lisa is tearing you apart.

People in the office who put recycling in the rubbish bin
Not that I'm some sort of massive eco warrior, or anything, but the recycling bin is right next to it and they're incredibly clearly marked. So if you're chuckling your aluminium can or waste paper into the main rubbish bin, you're just a thick fucking cunt who pays no attention to the world around them, really. Which I find irritating because I'm expected to work with you...

All the crud you have to wade through before the film actually starts
Here's the thing: NOBODY CARES which companies made it, funded it, co-assistant-produced it or any of the other twenty things that seem to require a logo and/or banner to be displayed. If, by the end of the film, I've been impressed, then AND ONLY THEN will I be interested in finding out who made it.

So stop stroking your shrivelled, flaccid members with splash screens, let us get on with actually watching the movie, and piss off back to the end credits where you belong.

Using the word "monkey" when referring to an ape
Nothing to do with Discworld, it just pisses me off as stunningly ignorant.

I also got caught out by another similar animal-related confusion. Mrs Moon Monkey had often mentioned that she wanted a pet turtle. So one year, in another desperate attempt not to cock up the birthday present challenge, I surprised her with a full set up, including a fun little Musk turtle.

Turns out, in her home country they use the word Turtle as a chelonian catch-all. What she really wanted was a tortoise.

Anyone want a turtle?

An intense surge of irritable rage comes over me at the thought of anybody I like being a fan of that band. I don't understand why it bothers me so much.

Bloke at work makes those cheap chinese noodles from a packet
He cracks them into a bowl, sprinkles on the powder and the meagre drops of flavouring oil, then adds water from the kettle. He gingerly picks up the piping hot bowl from the office kitchen and carries it carefully, like a newborn babe, to his desk.

What follows next is the revolting cacophony of a drowning pig.

SSSHHHHLLURRRRRPP. SSSHHHHLLURRRRRPP. SSSHHHHLLURRRRRPP as he shovels the cheapest of meals into his puckered mouth.

After three mouthfuls, the steam and chili oil will have made his nose run.

SSSHHHHLLURRRRRPP. SSSHHHHLLURRRRRPP. HHHRRROOOOINK as he sniffs the nasal mucus back down his throat.

goes the metal spoon, scraping gracelessly against the bottom of the bowl as he scoops up the last powdery water and noodle fragments.

MMMTAAHHHH! he'll exclaim, smacking his lips loudly in satisfaction at such a flavoursome meal. By which time, the entire office is glaring daggers at him. Every. Fucking. Day.
