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.

I work with this Korean bloke
In a small office, and at least three times (but generally more), he makes a sound like a boomerang is being thrown through the air. Why? He doesn't say. It was funny at first, but now it's become like a Japanese water torture method. Just shut up for fucks sake! As if the job wasn't bad enough!

People who continue sniffing without blowing their nose
Sniffing is disgusting. It's also pointless: if your nose is running, then by sniffing you're just moving the mucus up... in order to come down again. Repeat the cycle.

Blow your fucking nose.

People who say "0207" and "0208" really piss me off
There is a single telephone code for London: 020.

It has been 15 YEARS since London were split up into "central" and "outer" telephone code areas. We used to have 0171 for central London and 0181 for outer London. However 15 years ago they unified London into just one telephone code, and extended the local number to 8 digits instead of 7. For example:

(0171) xxx xxxx became (020) 7xxx xxxx
(0181) xxx xxxx became (020) 8xxx xxxx

That was for the older numbers. But nowadays London numbers may be assigned with a 7, 8 or even a 3 - ANYWHERE in London. There is no longer any geographical significance in any split. If you don't believe me, test it: from one London land-line to another, whose code is (020). You don't need to dial the 020: just start dialling the local number.

Yet still you see signs written, newspaper adverts, office workers repeating their phone number as "0208 ....".

Stupidity annoys me.

My neighbours park outside my house.
They have a perfectly good driveway, and a perfectly good bit of kerb outside their house for the purposes of street-parking.

Well: I say they're perfectly good; but there must be something wrong with them, because they refuse to use either, preferring to park outside my house. Occasionally, they'll block my drive for good measure, and then look put-upon when I knock on their door to ask that they move their vehicle.

Were it not for the fact that it'd mean they'd be there for longer (and the fact that I'm much too middle-class and mild-mannered), I'd slash their tyres.

Pronounced Ark-i-tect. NOT, as the professional architect George something or other on those silly C4 programs say, "ArTitect". He is one ffs. It's a 7 year training course. Someone, somewhere along the line must have tapped him politely on the shoulder and said, "A what? An artitect? Sorry George you've got it wrong there old son." When? When? Someone tell him please.

Chew with their mouth open, talk when they have something in their mouth, cell phones in movies, and pushing their food towards their fork with their fingers... I can't stand finger pushers.
