White van drivers.

Especially those that try to ram themselves up your exhaust pipe (and no, that's not a sexual euphemism!) as happened to me yesterday.

Then again, it was probably my own fault for only doing 40mph on a 40mph road.

On the occasions when I'm not in a rush and that happens to me I just slow down and hold them up even more. Sometimes they 'get it' and back off and I go back to the speed limit. Those that are too thick to get the message find themselves getting to their destination later than if they'd given me some room.

I'm waiting for the day when I'll have the opportunity to get out and speak to one of the 'thicker' types directly.

And don't get me started on cyclists that seem to think that road traffic laws don't actually apply to them.

(A bit like BMW drivers TBH).

Not all road traffic laws do apply to cylclists, for example I don't have to tax, insure or have an MOT for my bicycle!



Well, many people think perhaps you should. And probably throw in an official cycling test too before being allowed on the public highway.

As a cyclist myself I entirely agree with you. I think everyone should have to pass a cycle proficiency teat before they are allowed on the road.

I'd also make those people who drive electric motability vehicles take a test as well. Not only are they dangerous, it is questionable just how many people in the Clacton area who use them are compos mentis enough to do so safely.

As an example my mother-in-law wants one but we've refused to sanction it as we know she'd kill someone within a week!! Crazy

I did pass a Cycling Proficiency test when I was about 8.
It was at the second attempt, the first time the front wheel came off the bike!
If cyclists have to take tests, then this should also apply to pedestrians, especially women with prams.

Far too many in normal life so will stick to this Forum.
1. Too many posters asking simple questions which can easily be answered by looking themselves. E.g. I'll be in Manchester on Saturday , any games, how do I get to ground etc.
2. People asking for fixtures / cup draws months before they come out !
3. Posters not adding a clickable link.
4. Hacks having a go at the grammar of certain posters. They should concentrate on checking there facts for there next article.
4. Pretend know alls , this site abounds with them.
5. People posting on the 'Football Where did you Go' that they went a Rugby/Cricket match which they have added to the 'Other Sports Section , if I was at all interested in those sports I would have looked there in the first place !
6. Posting something and then saying more details/full story are on my blog at -----------.
7. Signatures of posters , what a bunch of posers. Have all signatures not showing , but look occasionally for a laugh.
8. The sycophants , not too many but one certain Worcestershire one springs to mind.
9. The ingratitude of a few , there are some on here I will not answer.
Finger hurting , bed time. May carry on tomorrow, 'Gud night'
Continued,
10.Posters not accepting their mistakes and trying to squirm out of it.
11.Posters insisting on repeating a post in full when replying to it instead of just the relevant point.
11 (A). Posters insisting on repeating a post in full when replying to it instead of just the relevant point should be stopped.
12.Posters insisting on posting in 'Where are you going' when they have no idea. Then changing mind umpteen times and insisting on telling all.
13.Mods deleting personal messages and binning a load of useful info.
14.Last worders. Insisting on finishing an argument when losing it.
15. No kick off times mentioned especially when doubles/trebles attempted, I like working out how much of each game you miss.
16.Posters putting wrong scores down through leaving early , one poster has done it twice recently.
17. Posting reams of fixtures when a link would suffice.
18. Posts being deleted on the whim of an individual without explanation.
19. People with no balls and not having their reply privately option enabled.
20. Womens football on Where did you go, there is a womens section.
21. Repetitive posting, its not too difficult to check with the search posts option.
22. Advertising.
23. Journalists.
24. People who complain a lot.

Re: [dottirofhod] Random & Pointless Things That Really Annoy You [In reply to] Can't Post or

Lets have a look at how many of these 24 annoyances I'm in breach of...

2. People asking for fixtures / cup draws months before they come out ! - Guilty
3. Posters not adding a clickable link. - Guilty on a couple of occasions
7. Signatures of posters , what a bunch of posers. Have all signatures not showing , but look occasionally for a laugh. - Guilty
9. The ingratitude of a few , there are some on here I will not answer. - Possibly guilty of this?
Continued,
10.Posters not accepting their mistakes and trying to squirm out of it. - Same answer as 9
12.Posters insisting on posting in 'Where are you going' when they have no idea. Then changing mind umpteen times and insisting on telling all. - Definitely guilty, but games change for a reason!
15. No kick off times mentioned especially when doubles/trebles attempted, I like working out how much of each game you miss. - Especially guilty at times, though not as much as I once was!
16.Posters putting wrong scores down through leaving early , one poster has done it twice recently. - Never done this, always check the correct score before posting
21. Repetitive posting, its not too difficult to check with the search posts option. - Maybe guilty
23. Journalists. - I could be guilty of this but most journalists and news corps have their own agenda.
24. People who complain a lot - Guilty of this one I think

So I'm either guilty of or possibly guilty of 11/24 annoyances... I better keep my mouth shut!! Cool

-

I suppose that was me ... but I insist that I only did it once; the penalty shoot out at the end of the game has no bearing on the score of the game! It may affect the result, but I don't go for the result, I go for the football.


Nothing really annoys me though; I'm so Effen cool, oh apart from ................ (see my blog)

There are also sections for Other British Isles and Premier and Football League. I therefore assume that anyone attending matches outside of English non-League is not welcome in the Where did you go section in your eyes?
