The Waitrose Christmas tv advert (girl making gingerbread) - think it's the music which really gets on my nerves.

School. That is what annoys me.

When the smiley starts the next line of the post you have made instead of on the same line.

Stupid mocking smiley.

What about if you're a teacher of doctors?

A doctorate represents a person being a good student, not a good teacher.

Or surely a good doctor which I thought was your point?

The doctorate is most likely in what they are teaching - like linguistics etc.

The idea is they are probably teaching while studying part-time in a speciality related to their field. Then they will be deemed qualified to lead a team of teachers, prepare curriculums, run seminars, and publish academic papers; among other things.

They will earn more into the bargain.

Whether right or wrong, some universities will only employ Masters or Doctors. If I put 10 years into my study and worked for a good part of it, I would fancy the moniker Dr as well.

Rain on a cold day. It's already cold, then you are soaked and soggy with ice-cold socks, then you go back outside and then freeze a second time. Choose cold or rain, not both.

Many Spanish ask for ice in their coffee because they haven't got 3 hours to wait for the scolding hot drink to cool down quickly enough which is often served in a glass with no handles, therefore impossible to pick up in the first place. They can be right loonies at times I tell you.

Really...people do that?!

I agree, should only do this on key bits of correspondence where it might be of some particular relevance/importance. Although other than CVs, I'm struggling to think of more than a handful of times I recorded my degree on 20 years of work correspondence.

It's an old cliche but I find Macs one of the worst for this.

You have a scolding hot drink on the table near your child and have to leave the lid off if you want it to reach a drinkable temperature before midnight. I place it as safe as poss, but it'd be much better if it wasn't a volcanic temp to begin with.
