This is a question Driven to Madness

Captain Placid asks: What annoying things do significant others, workmates and other people in general do that drive you up the wall? Do you want to kill your other half over their obsessive fridge magnet collection? Driven to distraction over your manager's continued use of Comic Sans (The Font of Champions)? Tell us.

I had that girl from Pulp Fiction over to sort out the moisture in my extractor fan, which I then had her put by that big Scottish pond.
Thanks to her, I had a dry vent Uma, add Ness.

Here endeth the lesson...

This happened in the days of prohibition and ‘The Untouchables’ (featuring the supposed ‘Irish’ one who spoke with a distinct Scottish accent but still won an Oscar). Anyhoo, they were discussing ways that they could improve efficiency. One guy had a proposal and to demonstrate it he drew a very tedious, drab diagram featuring circles that crossed over each other. Elliot, the leader, was not impressed.

Unpeturbed, the guy drew yet another, even more dull and boring diagram with even bigger circles.

“Fuck this” said Elliot “I’ve had enough. I'm giving up this lark and getting ratarsed.”

And that is how ‘Dree Venn two marred Ness’. Is it Thursday yet?

*dies inside*

I've got a steering wheel down my underpants...
and it's a very uncomfortable situation to be in I can tell you. I'm considering having it removed.

The misappropriation of the verb "troll"
In the good old days this term encapsulated the wind-up work that went on in rousing the passions of those who were easily wound up. Now this noble endeavour has been besmirched by the incorrect use of the term by journalists, who lack the intelligence to properly research or understand it.

Yes, yes, I know that language is fluid and words are always being re-defined, but it still galls me that a word (and its subsequent implications) can be so abused in such a short space of time. "Trolling" now seems to describe the action of any sort of online abuse, and today I saw it used to describe some people who were simply criticising something via the internet! Since when did trolling mean offering criticism?! Argh!

You know what's worse? I feel like I've been trolled by the media.

Those cars with the incredibly sticky tyres and grappling hooks.
They drive me up the wall.
