    You might need to do it today if you want it credited this tax year. A lot of providers cutoffs have already happened as the dates are based around clearance of funds not when they receive them.

    People who are constantly on the look out for something that offends them, so that they can use at as a passive aggressive weapon to manipulate.

    Book in advance at cheap rate and pick up as you pass through. Pretty much always cheapest for me. Delivery at home can be cheaper but am never there in working hours.

    Getting 6 out of 6 selections right on Saturdays bet but doing them as singles instead of an accumulator :(.

    People who spit in public places.
    I use a court in Goffs Oak for a ladies group on a Tuesday morning.
    It is in a park and next to a 'cage' area with a basketball court.
    When I arrived yesterday there were three spots where people had spat. It had not disappeared.
    Today I went into WGC and parked,as usual, in Waitrose car park.
    The vehicle next to me, and I use the word 'vehicle' very loosely,was held together with masking tape and bird droppings. It was either that or it was an exhibit for the Turner Prize!
    On my return from the bank,recycling and shopping,there was an almighty coughing and spluttering from near to where my car was.
    As I walked to my car I saw the creature responsible empty an enormous oyster onto the ground,to the horror of three other shoppers. Needless to say he executed this with a cigarette in one hand.
    He then got into his 'vehicle',still coughing his organs up.
    I put a tissue over the offending liquid and left.
    I have huge sympathy for people who are ill and suffering but this individual did not gain my sympathy.
    Yuck!

    I hate the fact that distracted at work I only zapped my meal in the microwave for half of the prescribed time.
    Expecting a dose of the trots tomorrow.

    Tuneless whistling.
    Not so much something I hate, just something I don’t understand. There’s a window cleaner round our way who does it. He seems quite happy. Perhaps he’s into atonal modern jazz but I doubt it.

    @wfcmoog told me he hated his first 'riding' lesson. He won't be going again until his back's better.

    A small thing, but I hate that my iPhone constantly has a reminder that it is not completely set up because I haven’t entered a credit card for Apple Pay the presumptious c*nts.

    Get an android then. I cant fathom why hoards of people still buy iPhones.

    'London' Scumland Airport. The place still is a massive building site (in a similar state to the last time I visited it about 5 years ago), the £18 ticket for parking under 2h (01h00-02h45 daughter's plane was delayed) in the multi-story carpark was a tad 'excessive' (especially as public transport options at that time were 'limited') and the arrivals waiting area looked (and felt) more like a provincial bus station than an 'international airport' (sic.).

    The simple answer is many people don't like Android phones.

    People who suddenly become lifelong Watford fans but never get to games because, you know, things, but would love this once in a lifetime chance to come and see us at Wembley, and it's their birthday in about 4 months so what better way to celebrate.

    I mean, we've been to Wembley a few times in the past few years and, you know, we didn't actually sell out for the once in a lifetime memorable semi final that you weren't desperate enough to bother getting tickets for.

    Charities that collar old folks in the street and then get them to sign up to direct debit donations.
    A recently widowed & disabled lady, with a disabled son who both have difficulty making ends meet are shelling out 20 different DDs totalling £157pm.

    Android phones come in a wide range of styles, sizes, specs. iPhones come in iPhone shape. And that's it.

    My parents wanted a 'smart' phone so they could WhatsApp relatives overseas and for them, I recommended an iPhone 4 or 5, because it will suit their needs and is easy to use, but for anyone who actually wants the smartness of a smartphone, I'm not sure why Apple are still even in business at that end of the market, with their one size Fitz Hall offering and restrictive OS and limited app offering.

    Some people have different needs and expectations than you do. For many, the closed OS is a plus. Not everyone wants something you can reconfigure in every aspect. Myself, I spend most of my day managing an enterprise environment. My phone is nothing more than a mobility tool to communicate when I'm offsite or unable to connect to the network. A closed system that just works is fine for me. I have zero need or desire to configure a phone down to the last detail; it's an inferior tool to an actual computer in every respect.

    The app differences are massively overplayed. For example, have you looked up how many fart apps there are on 'droid? I suspect most of us could live without access to those. As far as enterprise apps go, I've yet to encounter one that's 'droid only. I have seen one or two that are iOS only, though.

    If you want something you can configure to your heart's content, get a 'droid. If you want something that just works, get an iPhone. Neither option is wrong, it's very subjective.

    Great idea for a business - decompression/deprogramming for people who have spent so long in the corporate environment that they talk like a LinkedIn blog post.

    Charge 50k for a week of treatment with a guarantee that afterwards, you'll be able to take your child to a birthday party without seeing it as a networking opportunity
