Horror/Supernatural Thriller films in which the kids are unfazed by the ghost - they're either blase or curious or even befriend whatever is haunting their house. Ffs, if I'd've seen a ghost when I was a kid I would have wet my entire room then fainted.

I hate it when you pay to watch a horror film and it isn't scary in the slightest.

The out of touch police service. They refuse to move with the times and accept recruiting from outside could be advantageous if done properly.

And as I type this I watch 5 police officers help change a spare tyre for 46 minutes. Waste if money. Leave one to help and the other 4 can go and patrol.

The word 'literally' when used incorrectly especially by sports commentators.

'He literally took his head clean off then'

'They literally gave them a spanking'

'They literally had to drag themselves out of it'

No, they literally didn't do any of the above!

A friend of mine uses it in just about every sentence "I literally woke up at 8" "I literally had to wait twenty minutes for a bus" where the sentence would work fine without it. Quite tempting to literally headbutt her.

If only it was just sports commentators. I put ITV2 on yesterday for You've Been Framed (there wasn't much else on) and the continuity woman introduced it by saying, 'get ready to literally laugh your socks off.' Then during the adverts they had a trailer for another ITV2 show that according to the voiceover is, 'literally unbelievable'.

If you don't know what a word means, don't use it!

My five year old son has got into the habit of when I've asked what he's been up to at school or in general, he ends the sentence with 'in real life', so for example 'I've been playing hide and seek with my friend Finlay...in real life', I wonder if he has a lot going on in his head that also happens and the merger of the two is a bit hard to split.

Oddly I recally using the phrase when I was a kid, mainly to differentiate between Bonanza/Shane/Iron Horse or whatever other Western was on the go and the more mundane real life outside.

Not just positive discrimination but the fact that if you dress a steaming turd like discrimination up with a word like "positive" it makes it more attractive to morons.

The third story on the BBC's news homepage (news, not sport) is that Beckham's signed for Paris Saint Germain. There's been an Israeli air strike on Syria, but never mind, a former England international has moved from an American club to a French club!

I normally agree with your opinions but I think Sean Lock is about the funniest person I've heard (after Louis CK). I've been on the verge of p1ssing myself seeing him on 8/10 cats & QI, though oddly the bits of stand-up of his I've seen I didn't find too funny. His tirade on children acting on Big Fat Quiz Of The Year is choke-to-death-on-your-supper material.

Not sure what it is I don't like about him Galted. Think he tries to make too much of his jokes.

Jimmy Carr and the other team captain are very funny. Although John does play on his loneliness a little too much.

Speaking of comedy, one of the best out downs I heard was at a chubby brown show.

Car drivers who don't understand the rules of the road...

I.e. cyclists are legally allowed to filter and ride in the middle if the road. Muppets.

Cyclists who flout the rules of the road.

Red lights and pedestrian crossings concern all road traffic, not just those with engines.

On the other end of the scale, haggling for stuff here.

She says it costs 100, so I know it should be about 30. So I say 10. Then this happens:

Her - "90"
Me - "10"
Her - "80"
Me - "10"
Her - "50"
Me - "10"
Her - "50, best price. Cheap for you."

So I walk away and she shouts after me "Okay, 30!"

Just say 30 in the beginning, I'll pay 30, and we can both save time and effort instead of going through that ridiculous charade, again. I hate haggling. mad

Superb bargaining!

I hate those really thin plastic bags in a roll. Just spent a whole 3 minutes trying to separate the 2 sides of the bag. They were too tightly vacuum sealed and I couldn't get a grip. Partially panicked and had to use a knife to puncture it and blow through the tear.

Car salesmen.

Long story, but the guy was a miserable git who just wound both me and the wife up the wrong way.

Can I also say I agree with both LJ and the Fat Controller - cyclists are allowed to filter through traffic, and indeed it is one of the advantages of commuting by bike (right up to the point someone opens a door on you), but normal road rules (such as red lights) still apply. As a cyclist, I get really hacked of with other cyclists who just blatantly flout the laws of the road.

The Ladbrokes adverts that are always on when football is on. Chris Kamara and that Italian guy are driving me crazy.

I used to like Kamara, but the joke is really running dry now.

I hope you walked away, d_h.

Never give people like that your business. You'll find a better deal elsewhere most likely. Unless it was a 'one of its kind' type motor vehicle.

It pays to do a practice run on some other oily salesman first. Be like Il G above... regardless of the fact he is in China. Think of the price you are willing to pay, then knock 5k off say... then don't raise your offer. Then walk out after 15 mins or so with a confident look on your faces.

Tell me about it. I cycled to work for two years and I always stopped at red lights. Even now that I drive to and from work, it still infuriates me when I see cyclists sailing through them and doing various other things that give all cyclists a bad name.

Agree, cyclists are a pain in the backside when they flout the rules of the road. In Newcastle you never see a policeman on the roads in the morning so sadly thy can get away with it all too often.

Dog walkers who collect up the poo into a little plastic bag and then leave the bag lying around on the pavement steam

Why do so many songs these days have yodelling in them? Okay, it's not technically yodelling, but you know the kind of thing I mean: it began with that 'Someone Like You' song by Kings of Leon, then that stupid Coldplay song (I know that doesn't really narrow it down), now everyone's at it.

music Oh-oh-eh-ooo-oh... music

Shut the fluck up! tomato

Laugh They are quite testing aren't they?

(your reply to the bloke that used test as a verb in some rugby thread the other day)

People who leave shopping centre trolleys in the middle of nowhere. A very bad look!

Or in a parking bay in the supermarket car park. Sometimes there are easily a dozen bays out of commission because there are trolleys in them. Is it really that hard to put them back where they're supposed to go?

I would love to have the job of keeping an eye on a supermarket car park and telling people about to dump their trolleys to put them in the right place. Also, I'd love to police the parking in the disabled and mother-and-child parking bays.*

I think there are some families (only about 200m from the shopping centre) and they just 'park' them out the front of their units.

I saw a bloke using one to load stuff into a removal van the other day too. He looked very sheepish.

14 people die in a fertiliser plant explosion in the States: headline news, BBC reporters flown over there to bring us live coverage even when there's no updates to bring us.

At least 160 people die after a building collapses in Bangladesh: fourth or fifth story in the news, the BBC use a local journalist to tell us what's happening.

If only the poor b@stards had been white!
