My missus.

She airs the children's towels on a clotheshorse type thing, possibly called a clotheshorse. They dry and she puts them on the back of the bathroom door, ready for the evening baths. The towels are very long and touch the bathroom floor.

One afternoon I was working from home and she appeared at the door with a towel in her hand and said she was really worried we had a leak somewhere because recently, when she'd gone to use the towels at bath-time, and sometimes they were already wet at the bottom. We'd had a problem with a drip from the toilet which had managed to find its way through the floor and come through the kitchen ceiling, so I immediately thought we had a severe issue. She'd looked everywhere but couldn't find a leak so we thought we'd leave it and monitor the situation.

I couldn't sleep for the worry and just before dawn it dawned on me - it's a towel FFS. I use it to dry my hands on. And it only happens every now and then because I don't work at home all the time.

Now I'm in trouble for incorrect use of towels. I've annoyed me as well for not thinking of it sooner.

Paying for my daughter to have a hours dance lesson, and watching the dance teacher chat to one of the mums for the first 15mins while the kids sit bored.
I've told the Mrs we will only pay 75% of the cost next week.

Getting sold a ten euro 'so easy' phonecard instead of an mtn one like i asked for, then having to listen to the dozy assistant tell me she can't exchange it as 'i might have used it'. What, in the 10 seconds between walking out of the shop and walking back in having realised the dozy bint has sold me the wrong one?

Now regretting my principled stance to 'never use this shop again' as its an extra 200 metres to the next shop.

Upon asking for fish and chips please in a hotel, sitting down and then being presented with the fish and small dish of sauce on something that can only be described as a wooden chopping board that has seen better days. The chips came in a metal bucket that would be more appropriate hanging up with a plant in it. Have they run out of plates?

Maybe I should up the value of my hotels.

Remember that winding me up too. The secret is not to get up. Make them ask.

And removed the superfluous 'over'.

Or the two twats that moved out of their seat 5 times before halftime.... Too much drink boys!

Conversely rude c*nts making a big deal of moving despite you asking politely. I give it a second or so before steaming through aggressively if they refuse to make what I deem to be acceptable effort. They don't own the f*cking stadium.

Try harder. They are the fruit of your loins after all.

This. And I would also add the increasing habit of being served approximately 5 chunky chips neatly stacked up with your meal and guaranteed to leave you hungry

I'm annoyed that while at work today I thought of something that annoys me, and said to myself I'm going to post that on the "Things That Annoy You" thread when I get home.

Now I'm home I can't remember what it was that annoys me, which unto itself is very annoying!
