I can honestly say that, at my age, nothing annoys me anymore.

Which is what Rob said, LAX, the airport.
Perhaps LAX is used by people as a name for the airport because it distinguishes it from smaller airports within the LA conurbation e.g. Long Beach.

Just like the good old days... how did we ever make it to 2016?

It seems to have been a particularly annoying day... over 2 pages of posts in the last 24 hours!

Anyway... as a resident of "LA" for over 30 years, in speech I'm not sure I ever call it LA, just in posts on the BBS. Verbally I will still call it Los Angeles.

LAX is another matter. Yes it is akin to calling the London Underground "The Tube". As Rob alluded to, I live nearer to Burbank (as many of you do to Gatwick), so I have to be more specific when going to the airport. There is not a person in Los Angeles who does not use the term LAX.... it is a given. I would agree that someone in London would never say they are going to LHR!

The cost of wine in Abu Dhabi. Effing ridiculous.

Automatic doors that don't open quickly enough & therefore actually hinder my progress through them.

Things that annoy you
 
Sandwich makers who have such little strength they fail to cut the bottom slice in half. Leaving you to tear your bacon and egg butty, the filling falls out and your left with bread, bacon and egg in a heap. Do your ******* job and cut the ******* bread!

You're a lawyer aren't you? You can afford it. Anyway should you be drinking in an Arab state? Isn't that disrespecting their culture?

Static shocks. You probably think you get the most, but it's me

Unfortunately she decided to bin the whole punnet and treated us all to another 10 minutes of topics such as 'how do you vote? I know nothing about politics and who is the prime minister?

Amen

Started with Jade Goody and is now exampled regularly by Joey Essex and his ilk, being stupid or ditzy is seen as cool, cute or endearing.

It's not.

Pregnant women

I hope you have a happy and healthy pregnancy I really do, but can the rest of us get on with our (obviously not as important) lives without having to recognise every 3 minutes you are with child.

I was on my train companies Twitter and a pregnant woman complained it was too busy, she couldn't get a seat and if anything happened to her unborn child she was holding Southeastern trains directly responsible. She then followed it up 5 mins later saying she had battled through, removed (her word) someone from a seat but that it was too hot and she was uncomfortable, she then followed up by complaining as she was worried she wouldn't be able to get off the busy train and is she missed her stop she was holding Southeastern trains directly responsible!!

Get a different ******* train - the world doesn't revolve around you !!!!!

You can get alcohol in loads of places in Abu Dhabi, and Qatar and Dubai etc etc.

Vegetarians and vegans who can't keep it to themselves. Yes, I am aware. I can't help but be aware, you've made sure of that. Repeatedly. I respect your lifestyle choice now respect mine as I consume this fried sliced dead pig in a roll.

Being told " enjoy"........

People who have picture and autographs framed on the wall.

I make a point of saying it's probably fake :D
