Room 101

In this thread you can put trivial things that annoy you into Room 101. Things like war or disability don’t count, they are already in there automatically. This is for those little things that annoy you that don’t really matter!

A few of mine:

~ Ripped jeans

~ Use of mobile phones in restaurants

~ People who drive in the middle lane of the motorway when there is nothing in the left hand lane

So, what would you put into Room 101? :D :) :o

    Boxes that don't open properly...you know the ones where you lift the end and it leaves half the cardboard behind! :D 

    And in the same vane, stickers that don't come off cleanly, rip into tiny peices and leave sticky residue behind! 

    Oh and car paintwork swirls...that's probably quite a niche one! :p

    Lots of really good ones here! Some really funny trivial things which actually are quite annoying, which is what I was hoping for haha :D

    A few more of mine

    - Use of the word "of" instead of "have". E.g. "should of" or "could of" :angry::D

    - Use of the word "lockdown" to describe a few shops being shut and not being able to go to the pub

    - People not thanking you when you make way for them (can be in car or on foot)

    - A gap between the top of someone's socks and the bottom of their trousers

    Stickers and labels on stuff so you try and peel them and it just tears off a tiny dot and leaves a sticky mess

    The new meaning of words like "wicked" and "sick" and people using the new meaning to describe something!

    Finding only one sock in the washing machine.

    Pavements with a high kerb that you can't get your scooter or wheelchair onto by yourself.

    TV programmes with rich celebrities traveling the world to places I can only dream of visiting and paying them to do it

    Soap operas. All they do is shout and scream and be mean to each other

    Mine are:
    • Bullies and narcissists
    • Being asked to fill in surveys on how we did every time you have ordered something online
    • Clickbait/Image manipulation on YouTube much makes videos more interesting than they are or simply misleading
    • Making service announcements on the underground when the trains pulls in, you can't hear it.
    • Deciding to terminate buses before they reach their destination
    • Computers locking up. Back in the old days they crashed and had the courtesy to reboot at the same time, now you have to hold the power button to turn them off and then back on.

    Great additions here thanks for the posts! :)

    As for computers locking up, I agree! They also had the decency to actually crash rather than leave you guessing!! Also, it seems now that webpages are much more advanced, but not necessarily better - in the old days when web pages were simple and basic, they loaded up instantly, now it takes several seconds!

    I agree with social media! If we were being really drastic I'd put the whole internet in, although then we wouldn't be able to post on here! Maybe just the "cess pit" internet that is YouTube comments, comments on news articles etc!
