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.

Wheelie luggage twats
People with wheelie luggage with extendible handles on escalators (particularly on the Tube in That London). Most drop the handle when getting on, carry it, then as soon as they step off the escalator, stop and fumble about trying to extend the handle again as they can't be arsed carrying it a few yards clear of the end. What they don't seem to realise is that there are other people behind them who are being spat off the escalator, and they are blocking it, with a serious pile-up being a real possibility. I've found the best way of avoiding this scenario happening is to treat them to a flying shoulder-charge in the back. Not only is seeing them face-planting deeply satisfying, but you also have the get-out card of 'sorry, you were blocking the escalator and I couldn't stop'. I commend this course of action to the board.

Oh yes indeed.
Wheelie luggage is a sign of moral weakness. Carry the damn thing.

Never has a truer thing been said
People with ones barely bigger than a small briefcase you could easily carry by a handle, who are clearly able bodied and fit, are the worst offenders given half the time you can't see the bloody things in crowds.

What really pisses me off
about those things is the when dickheads dragging them blithely wheel the bastards over one's foot, and then get annoyed when one's foot boots it out of the way- steel toecapped boots are great.

yeah, wheelie luggage enables one bumbling idiot to take up the space of three bumbling idiots.
