Are we having our luvly spelling goober or is it gobber or is it gobbler oh bugger it, here?
Actually, spelling mistakes sometimes give me peeves, including my own! :lol:
But if things get to be too detailed into the small things, well not only in spelling or such, it can be really annoying! :evil: Which is the case with my colleagues, yet not in their English spelling which they admire so much :???:
That, and being promised something only later to find out it's not going to happen to lead you into a disappointment :(
Well, nobody likes being disappointed I suppose ay?

I don't mind about spelling mistakes, make tons myself. I look at the content behind the boo-boo's.

Gripes......

Screaming kids out of control, worst still, noisy neighbours....

Barking dogs.....

People who talk in a conversation, then ignore everything you've said, and go on with their own agenda....

Being taken for granted......

(Publishers, writing agents in general who obviously don't have a brain cell between them.......OK, biased, but you get like that when a rejection letter falls on the mat, lol)

Men who think it's their right to have the best, or better than you just BECAUSE they're men....oh yes, they do still exist....

People who bang on about the past and say it was better then, as if to imply that all we do now is rubbish.....yes, perhaps it was nice then, but there're good things happening now, also.....

Easy jail sentences for dreadful crimes.....lots of that going on here....

Being chucked out of the NHS dental scheme just because dentists have got used to a massively high standard of living.....(OK, they'll say there is more to it, new contracts unworkable, etc, but....)....that's nearly everyone in the UK, by the way......

I'll stop now, shall I, before I get a rep for being a miserable moron?...

Not in any particular order...

Rude people
Impatient people
Being lied to
Being used or taken for granted

Oh, and the toothpaste tube being squashed and gooey with the lid left off! :mad:

Hah.... lots of it...

noisy kids , rude people, people with no common courtesy , bad service, tickling , having to repeat my sentence a few times .....

... and bad lousy food.

Also in addition those chilli sauce that they put loads of it on top of fried rice or fried noodles or roti john( why do they have to do that? sheesh).. , the roti prata men who take their 'initiative' to shred the roti prata into small pieces before serving it (like as if they are serving the food to kids), the malay stall who put loads of chilli/sambal on my food/soup noodles when i did not ask for it (they think i loooove chilli coz i'm asian??)

I better stop rambling for now...
