Women over the age of 40 who sing current "pop songs"
By "pop songs" I mean anything in the charts that's "popular" at the moment.

I've worked with a few, and they usually do it in the morning, as they arrive at the office having just spent the 20 minute drive to work listening to that cockdustbin Moyles.

There's nothing quite as bad at 8AM as a 50 year old woman walking past you quietly singing "Umber-ella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh"

1. People over 40 shouldn't know what's in the charts
2. People over 40 certainly shouldn't sing in public (unless you are in a choir or are Sting)

I'm 30 and I am quite proud that I could not name 3 acts in the top ten let alone mumble along to their lyrics.

People who have lots of uncles/aunties and
spend lots of time with their cousins.

Me: "What are you doing this weekend"

Girl: "Goin' out with me cousins again round town"

It sounds strange but all the "common" people I have known always seem to have lots of uncles and aunties who live in the same town who they are very close with and see all the time. The same applies to the cousins, they hang around like best mates.

I haven't seen some of my aunites/uncles for 10 years+ and I wouldn't recognise 90% of my cousins if they slapped me in the face.

Maybe I'm mad. But I noticed it years ago and I always notice it now.

Not the general act of eating, but that of chewing with your mouth open, loudly.

This is perfectly acceptable if you are a caveman or my dog, but I don't want to see it from fellow members of society.

I just don't understand why people have to eat loudly with their jaws flapping about in the wind so we can all view the contents of their gobs.

I was brung up proper and told from an early age that your mouth always stays closed when you are chewing. To do any different would be quite disgusting.

Don't even get me started on chewing gum....that's even worse. The amount of people I see every day chewing gum loudly, mouths open....argh! I want to hit them in the face with a spade, then they'll appreciate the days when they used to have fully functioning jaws.

A few years ago I had the chance to buy a signed, numbered, limited edition print of a piece of Banksy artwork.

It was all above board, from a genuine gallery who dealt in Banksy's stuff. The prints were about £200 each (this was before he became massive)

I didn't really know who he was, I just stumbled upon a cool looking picture that I thought would look cool in a frame on our wall. I "uhm'ed and ahh'ed" about it for a couple of weeks, they sold out and I thought "Oh well, never mind"

I read recently that one of these prints sold for £13,000 at auction.
