The sound of people eating apples. It never bothered me before, ever, in my life. But Radcliffe and Maconie did a piece last year on their show very much along the lines of this thread, in radio format, asking for submissions from their listeners. One of the submissions was the sound of people eating apples, which I thought was daft, but then it got me thinking about it.

Since then, whenever Mrs Hearthly eats an apple, I have to leave the room and find something else to do until she's finished. I haven't said anything to her about it as it's clearly fucking stupid and entirely not her fault.

Heh. I find hearing someone eat crisps in the seat behind me on a train or bus mildly irritating too. I, of course, probably annoy the person in the row in front by doing the same, and on and on until the end of the universe. Or at least the toilet.

I used to have a toaster that had a little pop up rack for warming naan, rolls and similar, in exactly that manner.

"Brufen" is the term that most doctors I know seem to use to refer to it. I think that's a bit like calling a vacuum cleaner a hoover since it's a brand name version of the same thing.

My husband tried coaching my son on this, because ‘we don’t have a Hoover’. Except we DO have a Hoover branded vacuum, so he is wrong.

I’m pretty sure he’s also baffled by the number of things I refer to as ‘the machine’. I get that off my man who referred to the washing machine and sewing machine simply as ‘the machine’. Like most intelligent people I always knew which she was referring to due to context, but Russell can’t do this for some reason.

Small cars parked deep inside parking spots.

Slow walkers in fucking narrow corridors

Fucking ivy

People who talk to me when I'm wearing headphones

School kids dropping litter

The way that singer says "flay-aaaa-hames" in that song I've just heard

Me. I annoy me today. Perfect day for this thread.

BrE uses plurals for sports teams and AmE uses singular. Both are correct depending on which side of the Atlantic you're on.

Nursery I have looked at 'graduates' to primary school.

I have mixed feelings about it, it is a milestone and maybe should be marked in some way, but I am unsure that doing it this way is, well, right really.

This annoys me more than it should. Not being able to spell 'rogue' is one thing, but when you've got it right in front of you...

It also bugged me that Out Run became OutRun in the later games.
