Letters from an imperfectionist: People/Organisations who piss me off

Here’s a starter list – can you add to it?

  • People who use mobile phones whilst they are driving – we should be allowed to shoot them on sight
  • Organisations who try to call me with “Unknown” or “No Caller ID” on my phone – can I make it absolutely clear that I will NEVER answer my phone to you?
  • People who park on double yellow lines or on the pavement outside the shops in Hale, Cheshire – who the hell do you think you are? You lazy sods! It makes me want to take a dump in your front garden…
  • All the customers who sit outside Picalinos (or, as I call it, Prickalinos) in Hale, Cheshire – you pretentious snobs – you think you look great and you just look paper thin
  • All the customers inside Picalinos who thought it was fun to insult my daughter when she worked there as a cocktail waitress, so that they could show off to their friends – we laughed at you every week, you ignorant idiots
  • People who jump up when the seat belt light goes out on a landed flight and cram the aisles with themselves and their bags, as if getting off the plane first were a life and death decision (but even worse – the people who unbuckle before the light goes out)
  • People who think that, because they own a Lamborghini, they can hurtle it at 70mph down the road at the end of ours, completely disregarding children, old folks, dogs being walked and others – what complete and utter morons some nouveau riche people can be

Rant over – thank you.

Happy to hear your comments and build a bigger list – come the revolution……..
