    I ran a girl over on Saturday and she apologised for being 'thick' . I was in Sheffield trying to find a parking spot on a roadside . I could see it coming , as I crawled down the road , the young lass was talking to a taxi driver then just turned straight into the front of my car , bang ! she fell over , I jumped out to see if she was ok , luckily she was .
    My room 101 is ignorant ,dopey ,slow folk who don't give a toss especially with a shopping trolley in their mitts !

    All of the above plus mobile phone zombies walking down a busy high street texting, or whatever it is they're doing completely oblivious to people having to move out of the way as they walk towards you and pass you.

    Drivers who fill up with fuel, then decide to do their monthly shop at the same garage, including waiting in the queue at the ATM (see other post in this thread about that), before paying for their fuel.

    Special mention up those that queue for 30 mins at passport control before realising might need to actually have their passport handy

    A bloated business person standing in the aisle in a plane, carefully folding up their jacket, not forgetting to search their carry on bag for all the essentials before opening the overhead locker, only to discover there's no room in it. Meanwhile, the remaining 180 passengers wait patiently, eyeing the inviting empty seats just beyond the standing passenger. So near but yet so far.

    My nan broke her pelvis when a lad stopped suddenly to bend down and tie his shoelace straight in front of her. She was on holiday which she had to end short and she was laid up for ages back at home.

    I've never had to take my belt and watch off, and take my ipad out to go through the scanner. No never.

    Dawdling along in a car with your mate, just behind a lass walking alone in the dark and heckling through the rolled down car window :confused:

    That’s what I got the pleasure of experiencing whilst walking to meet my husband at the train station this evening. (I get home before him and walk to the station to meet and walk back with him for a bit of exercise). Thankfully, he was about 5 steps in front of me at the time and as he came up to me he said they drove off facepalming as they could tell he was clearly meeting me. I’m glad he was there as it creeped me the hell out. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been heckled from a car thankfully and certainly never when dressed up like it’s the dead of winter complete with woolly bobble hat! I don’t know if they don’t realise how creepy it is, don’t care or quite enjoy it.

    It was quite a busy place where everyone was walking along. If she’d have slowed down (not that she was going that fast at 76) people would have been walking into her. He could have looked behind him but she couldn’t have predicted the future. No-one should ever just stop and bend down suddenly like that with no warning.

    It's called being considerate.

    Slow down, turn to the side, look behind you and wait.

    I had this exact situation a week or so ago at Morrisons. After assessing the queues at the other checkouts I thought I'd dropped on with the checkout I went to with just one lady in front of me, I could not have been more wrong!! She only decided to start packing after all her items has been scanned, following this she messed around for what seemed like an age to find her purse and when she had paid she started to have a conversation with the checkout operator which went on for several minutes!!! People in the queue behind me were starting to get irate and I felt the pressure to throw everything in my trolley, pay and quickly get out of there!!

    Flipping airports...

    Nowadays you get more of these self-service booths at passport control with the biometric passports. Now obviously a lot of people seem to have a lot of problems following very simple instructions. So these queues are just as annoying as the manned booths. But sometimes you get someone who just seems to be completely clueless. These booths always have two gates. One to let someone into the scanning area, and then one to let you out once the scans are complete. During the process you're locked in in what is a fairly small space. Now the guy in front of us. He was clueless. By the time we started to get to the front, there should've been ample opportunity to see how it works. This guy was by himself, but someone, he managed it to enter that small locked in area with the person in front. They didn't even know each other. Super awkward of course, and definitely not the way it's supposed to work. I mean, how do you even do that? So even though we were next in line, this of course delayed everything by another few minutes... :mad:
