Things That Irritate Me: Volume 2

A good while ago now, I wrote this post about things that irritate me. I was feeling particularly uhm, irritable let’s say (damn hormones) and as I mentioned in the beginning of that post, I wanted to channel my annoyance in a healthy way. So instead of punching someone, I wrote a blog post. Today, I’m doing the same because once again, I was feeling particularly irritable (that happens, usually once a month. It’s called periods, look it up) and I have a whole lovely jubbly new set of things that really, royally irritate the living crap out of me.

Things That Irritate Me

  1. Hair bands that get stuck in your hair to the point where you have to cut them out. Plus, it really fucking hurts
  2. WiFi that keeps losing signal, on and off for hours. It’s like I live in the Sahara fucking desert sometimes, not London.
  3. Extremely self-centred, self-obsessed people. You know who I’m talking about, the ones that always reply to you with something aBOUT THEMSELVES.
  4. People who walk into the road without looking. If I run you over, it is not my fault.
  5. Realising you didn’t get all the conditioner out of your hair once it’s dry so it looks greasier than it did before you even washed it. Yay.
  7. People who tell you to be ready for a certain time but then you end up waiting for them.
  8. People who put chocolate and ketchup in the fridge. wut.
  9. The notion that all woman should want kids. Can we drop that now please? It’s 2016.
  10. “I’m going to read / play Sims / watch Orange is the New Black”, “I hate reading / The Sims / Orange is the New Black”. Okay… What do you want a medal, I didn’t ask you to join me so stop moaning.
  11. People who make an ordeal out of nothing. I dropped some powder on the floor in the bathroom? EVACUATE. EVACUATE.
  12. Unorganised people. People who never remember anything and people you have to keep nagging like how do you get through each day without dying?
  13. “I respect everyone’s opinion. But if it’s different to mine then you’re wrong and I’m going to argue with you”, okkkkkkkkkkkkk
  14. People that make stories 45 minutes longer than they need to be. I don’t actually care that the car was red, it was exactly 4:56 in the afternoon or that the wind was blowing in a North Easterly direction.
  15. When you’ve been playing for 13 hours, created 18 generations and your Sims game crashes before you save it. Not so much irritating more like, rip my heart out of my chest and stamp on it soul destroying.
  16. People who don’t understand Twitter / Tumblr humour. Can’t even.
  17. Those people that take 3 hours to eat their dinner. Extra annoying points if they feel the need to put their knife and fork down after eVERY SINGLE BITE
  18. Waking up 2 minutes before your alarm is due to go off.
  19. When people don’t reply to your emails or texts about something super duper important that needed to be sorted out like… Yesterday.
  20. When people don’t respect and/or understand your alone time and keep talking to you / bugging you and oh the rage.

What things annoy the crap out of you? Do you agree with any of the ones I mentioned? Let me know! Let it all out!

  1. […] just refer you to this post and this post and leave it […]

  2. Uh oh…I keep chocolate and ketchup in the fridge *hides* XD Agree with a lot of these! Also made me chuckle. X

    1. Noooooooo!

  3. Kitty Wilson says:

    Oh my goodness…hairbands -Yes! Drives me mad, hours of detangling until you’re so furious you attack with the scissors and then have to hope no-one notices a huge chunk of hair missing (although in my case I’ve so much of the stuff, it’s probably a good thing!) In fact I relate to most of these – can you even begin to imagine what wifi is like in Cornwall…large parts don’t even have 3G!! And as for people not understanding I like my own space and prattling on and on for hours about inconsequential nonsense (seriously, I mean like who cares what your favourite washing powder is?) instead of leaving, and then eventually going but saying “well, won’t you be lonely?”…..arrgghhh! I also may be a little hormonal today. But still, great post 🙂

    1. Hahaha thank you for having a rant it’s good to get it all out sometimes! Your comment definitely made me chuckle!

  4. Oh my gosh, all of them! Good to know that someone feels the same way!

    1. Haha definitely! I could have a whole blog dedicated to things that annoy me!

      1. I have actually thought of doing that but have the blog private:)

  5. I swear I’ve never related to a single post so passionately XD
    Especially the Sims one, and the WiFi! Also, I love your blog name! Gonna go read volume 1!

    1. Hahaha I’m glad! And thank you 🙂 hope you enjoy volume 1 just as much!

      1. It was brilliant! 😀

  6. Errr….8 & 16……that’d be me.
    But there again I’m just a man and one who is 65 tomorrow, so you’d sort have to expect that kind of behaviour. (exits to re-arrange collection of graphic novels for the 2nd time this week)

    1. Hahaha I love your comments!

  7. The upstairs neighbor clicking her heels at 6am just above your bed.
    The empty bottle of shampoo when you’ve already gotten your hair wet.
    The ipad’s battery letting me down just before the big twist in the book.
    The heap of laundry that never disappears.
    Any bad hair day.
    Twitter’s automatic ad-DM
    Rude people who blame all the wrong things in the world on others.
    The MacBook that denies me access to my files because it keeps freezing every f****** minute.
    The pressure I put on myself whenever I need to write a review.
    The stupid and lazy delivery guy who makes me go out of the house in my pajamas because he won’t bother come to the door when I’ve paid extra for the quick home delivery.
    Hairdressers who don’t let you do whatever you want with your hair (it’s MY head!!)

    Wow, it feels good to get it off my chest! Thank you!

    1. I loved this so much!

  8. 2,3,7,12,14,17****************,19,20. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
    Great Post. :o)

    1. Hehe thank you!

  9. This list is pretty much my life in a nutshell. Everything is spot on except 8 because I need my ketchup cold but yes!!

    1. Hmmm I suppose I’ll let you off that one being as you agree with the others.

  10. I agree with so many of these! But then, I have to say I do put my Ketchup in the Fridge… So maybe that outweighs my agreement with the rest?

    1. Your opinions are invalid because you put ketchup in the fridge

      1. I figured this would be the case… There’s just something about it being nice and cold when you dip a hot chip in it!

      2. But chips are warm so why would you want to dunk them in something freezing that is the question here

      3. For delicious contrast? And it’s chilled.. Not frozen… We’re talking fridges not freezers 😉 Haha

      4. Hahaha ketchup ice cubes 😷 yes but…. I don’t see the logic. We’ll have to agree to disagree on this one.

  11. Number 9…. I’m 36 and I STILL hear “You’ll change your mind” regularly… Aaaargh… I have never wanted kids just get over it already!

    1. Ughhhhh bore offffff 🙄 (them not you)

  12. Totally with you on the Wi-Fi!
    Especially if I’m using my phone in my house and then realise I’m using my mobile data, argh!

    I might try making a list too it might be therapeutic!

    1. Ooh I hate that!! It may well be! I found this quite therapeutic

  13. but do these lists stop these things from happening? It might leave you wide open for a lot more of the same… just saying… Great post though.

    1. Nope but it’s good to have a vent every now and again!

      1. I certainly believe it is, and can vent with the best!
