Guaranteed irkings


#1

What things are 100% certain to pierce your usual zen-like calm and irk you good and proper?

For me, it’s cars (etc.) not indicating at roundabouts. It’s such a uniquely selfish driving act in terms of how much it inconveniences other road users and how little effort it takes to fix it. Utterly infuriating.


#2

yeah, not indicating is generally really shitty behaviour. there’s a junction just by our flat where the road forks and i’ve narrowly avoided being hit countless times by pricks who don’t indicate and take the corner far too fast.


#3

People eating loudly


#4

People conflating popularity with quality while arguing for something


#5

smug guardian commentators who think they’re the fist person to make whatever trivial easily-dismissed non-point they’re making

EDIT : any commenters really but I generally only read the guardian ones.


#6

Almost every single thing that exists in life.


#7

I’m usually pretty chill but got pretty irked when someone asked me to move my shopping up on the conveyor belt at asda. How about waiting a fucking second until it moves up itself you impatient prick?


#8

Football pundits


#9

Mate, Garbage are fucking excellent. End of.


#10

Banging my head on the corner of a kitchen cupboard. Drives me fucking crazy, especially as it’s nobody’s fault but my own :sob: :sob: :sob:


#11

Bike boglins going through red lights.


#12

We only do that when we’re in a hurry


#13

People hovering over your shoulder - gah, fuck off!


#14

any bad situation that I could’ve averted by my own actions


#15

We’re all in a hurry pal. Think on.


#16

I cannot stand this. Really winds me up a treat.


#17

Backseat driving when I am cooking, cleaning, generally doing chores.


#18

Pay attention to the fucking road then, Christ!


#19

yeah it does. even though some people cant help, it’s gets proper under my skin
