3 miles from a train station isn't the middle of nowhere! i live about 12 miles from nearest station but then most people find me extremely annoying so maybe you have a point

Oh no he wouldn't.

People on TV who are being interviewed and begin their answer with "So".

While we are at it, when did it become acceptable in a restaurant or shop to say "Can I get" when you actually mean "Please may I have" ?

Americanisms. Grrr. What really grips my shit is when people greet other people with 'Hey' instead of hello. 'Hey' in my vocab is a word I use to alert people quickly that I need their attention. For example 'Hey jump out of the way, that bus is going to splat you all over the road.'

Multi millionaires on tv begging for donations to which ever charity. If they all chipped in together poverty could be eradicated. But it's just a bit of face time to be seen as caring.

cupid stunt 22-12-2014 12:53 PM

People who try to jazz up their small talk by adding an s or a z onto how, or saying hay instead of hi, or u instead of you, to make the sentence seem less mundane.

Hay, howz u?

People who read Whatsapp messages but don't reply until later...

Guilty your honour

Depends who it is, if it's a good mate i'll answer instantly if i can, if it's a bird i've met on tinder and "gone off", they might have to wait a long time.

Pint of Speroni 22-12-2014 01:07 PM

People on Twitter who are ranting to a company but want everybody else to see it.

"Hi @O2 blah blah blah" or ".@Sainsburys moan moan moan".

It's almost like they're showing off to everybody who follows them how poor a service they're getting. Do one.

This pisses me off no end. I can't afford to live in the UK, yet these bastards avoid paying millions. Total con.

What should piss you off more FEE is the total FAIL by the UK Gov in collecting the tax in the first place. The corps listed in that graphic (if the numbers are correct) are not breaking any laws - if they were the taxman would be after them for the unpaid tax + relevant fines (maybe they are?)
We hear about this type of tax "evasion" (??) all too frequently, yet the tax laws still seem to allow such "evasions" to continue.
Too much vested interest??
