    People on the the tube who hold their phone in front of them to have a conversation. A lady did this on the met line opposite me about 1/2 an hour ago and I mimicked her until she stopped.

    Christ I'm in a bad mood today.

    Ariana Grandes, (stupid name), boyfriend said this...

    During a set five months after the terror attack, the Saturday Night Live comedian made a remark about how famous Ariana had become.

    He said: "Britney Spears didn't have a terrorist attack at her concert."

    Brilliant - did you have sounds or just copy her action? It being the tube is irrelevant - this is a crime anywhere.

    Pugs and other inbred fashion accessory dogs.

    More specifically the people who breed and buy them. Walked past some tart walking her pug this morning and the poor dog (4 legged) sounded like a geriatric with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and its head was so big it was nearly overbalancing.

    No doubt she'll be sick of it in a couple of years and have it put out of its misery.

    On the subject of pets, people who refer to themselves as mummy or daddy to the dog / cat / ferret etc. should be strung up.

    I rang my daughter and just did the same but louder. I'm mortified now but earlier today it felt bl**dy good.

    Neighbours who argue at midnight on a Friday night / sat morning, then get all ar5ey with you when you ask them to keep the noise down, as normal civilised people are trying to sleep

    Can't wait till the morning and I'll blast out my Sex Pistols Never mind The B0ll0cks album

    Bloke over the road, his builders started a 7.15 this morning. I asked them to be quiet as they're not allowed to start until 8. Bang on 8 they start a generator up. This is with the whole streets windows open. Just checked 3 rivers website, no building noise until 9 on a Saturday. c***s.

    Working class people and blue collar workers in general are often lacking in decency and manners, unfortunately

    New employee started today, (not my department). Young lady, seems quite pleasant. Every time I've walked past she's been tapping on her phone. She'll last 2 weeks IMO.

    Does nobody give young people advice on the workplace? [/generalisation]

    Unfortunately younger people coming into the workplace today expect to spend time on social media in the same way we expected lunch and tea breaks. It comes under the catch-all term ‘flexible working’. However, like you, I don’t believe they can be as productive while doing this, nor that they work appropriately longer hours to compensate.

    Of course there are now corporate business tools based on social media that can be equally distracting.

    They may expect this. But you don’t necesaarily have to employ them if they do. Should ask them about social media use at interviews.

    People (usually men) who take work phone calls by the swimming pool and talk very loudly.
    Hate it even more when, after glaring at them so they walk away and then as I try to block them out, I suddenly hear the following phrases..."Lorenzo advises.....two very rich Italian families.......Gino Pozzo.....Watford would be a good risk for us....". Then I hate myself for not paying more attention.

    My colleague keeps checking his blasted phone on court,during his lessons.He is 58.
    He has also used most of the wifi allocation at the club playing games on his phone.
    At our meeting next week I shall ban phones on court.
    So unprofessional.

    I once got found out for watching hard core porn at work. True story. Got pro
    Tantalising!

    Also, how is it, that the annoying person on the train talking gibberish really loudly, never loses signal? I can barely maintain a 30 second call to Mrs Moog to let her know my ETA at chorlywood, yet the vapid mouth diarrhoea speaker can maintain seamless jibberjabber all the way from moorgate

    Liked especially for use of the term “jibberjabber”.

    My dad used to tell me that people like that were ‘broadcasters’ but not ‘receivers’, that is they liked the sound of their own voice and cared not who was listening. It’s entirely possible that this person had also been cut off but carried on regardless.

    I'm led to believe Moog is a receiver.

    Haha!
    If you met him or got within 10 feet of him you'd know this to be unlikely.
    He rarely washes his hair,body or clothes and apparently lives in a 'Bates Motel' esque property.He pays a peppercorn rent but is not allowed to decorate and one room is a shrine to the lady who used to live there.
    He has engine parts in the front room and a bullet collection.
    Nursie,one of our team players,thinks he has all the attributes to be a serial killer.

    No,it just has the run down appearance of Norman's place,as well you know!
    He's checking Facebook we think or playing Pokeydokey or whatever the game is whilst his little pupils collect the tennis balls.
