I have seen a few things today which annoy me ... Shop assistants chewing gum.....it looks unsightly, its unprofessional, it looks like they just don't care ..... Buses not turning up .....yesterday the first THREE buses did not turn up ....so from 7.20 to 10 am ....no buses.....people had to get to school, college, work, appointments, and do their shopping ....!!! People pushing in to a queue ....they can see that there is a queue already and they push past you, bumping in to you.....you say anything and you get abuse back ....why cant people behave properly and have some manners... !!! Do these things annoy you ? What else annoys you ?

Chewing gum! Don't get me started! I was a teacher for 40 years. I never relented. Out with it and into the bin. If I saw another chewing gum, punishment would follow. Sadly, you can't react like this with grown-ups. For example, with parents coming to a teacher/parent meeting! :-(

If the parents are in your classroom, stress the rules. "Out with it and into the bin", before they set foot in your classroom.

@Starmaiden If only that were possible! But that would create new problems. It happened repeatedly that teachers invited parents in order to complain about the children's bad behaviour. After the meeting the teachers thought, "Well, compared to the parents, the children aren't so bad after all." :-( I often told my colleagues that my dream was to teach only orphans. This was meant to be funny, but it wasn't so funny after all.

@MALUSE That is true. A child's behavior is a reflection of what their parents unconsciously are teaching them at home.

@Traceyjayne That happened here at times buses going past people waiting for them because they were very crowded but yet why didn't they put more buses on for that situation. That is very unprofessional chewing gum while waiting on customers. I hate people pushing too. Cars parked on the sidewalks and the people have to go in the street. They finally got rid of some cars past town that parked on the sidewalks.

I totally agree on the Chewing Gum. I hate this! Its so impolite. People who keep driving in the middle lane when the right lane is free so I have to cross 2 lanes to overtake them to go back to the right one. And then they still keep driving in the middle lane. People who say they want to buy something and then you never hear from them again. Very annoying.

If you are relying on public transport I can imagine nothing worse than buses not turning up!

All you mentioned would annoy me. People who stand on the side of their shopping cart and block the entire aisle staring at products on the shelf annoy me to no end.
