    On the opening credits of Football on 5, the bloke sat on the coach, looks a bit like Bobby Gould.

    Is that trivial enough?

    People who dress, talk or act like chavs.

    People who are unnecessarily loud in public (people who share their phone conversation with an entire train carriage for example).

    People who walk slowly two-or-three abreast on the pavement, or people who walk two-abreast on the pavement towards you and don't become single file so you can pass them walking the other way.

    And the bus. Happens all the time, once I was near the front of the bus, a "lady" near the back was discussing her court appearance on her mobile for all to hear.



    People (nearly always women) who go to the shops in their pyjamas.




    Political Correctness (Prob not trivial, though)

    Singing "1-0 and you f•cked it up..."
    You have to had been at least 3-0 down before you start using that one.

    Singing "you're not famous anymore" - that's quite a flattering song, especially to the likes of Portsmouth, who've never even been famous.

I also feel the same about some of the sports presenters on BBC Breakfast, who are just faces who know bugger all about what they are reporting about.
    - worst of all, he forgot to mention the sponsor's name at one of the substitutions, I should think that's a hanging offence.

    Mentioned it before on here, but people who start their answers to a question with the word "so" do my head in.

    "Guys". Hi guys. I'll be over in a few minutes to take your order guys. Everything alright with your food guys? I wasn't even eating at a budget restaurant.

    I.d forgotten the sponsors substitute announcements. How bloody annoying were they on Tuesday. Can't say I.ve noticed them to that extent from my usual seat in the Ninian Stand before. I hope Warnock regularly gets the starting xi correct, to limit the number of those bloody announcements we have to listen to.

    What about when you're in a rush in the shop and as you finishing paying to join the exit walk there's about 3 people in front walking snail speed side by side to block the whole aisle... and then stop because they want to get fags.

    You obviously don't get the psyche of Pompey mushes who have existed for centuries, winning innumerable naval battles, on the basis that they are down-trodden, worthless under-dogs who should be underestimated at your peril. We are scum - famous for not being famous - until the nation depends on us, and then we rise up with a fury that is terrible to see and give entire continents a bloody nose. We come from an island off an island and have the smallest-minded insular mentality psychologists looking down their hoity-toity noses have ever examined - until they wake up from a right battering. Portsmouth boys revel in being put-down, for then we delight in smashing all the odds to vanquish the mightiest of mighty foes.

    Oh, and can we have our clock back, please?

    Woman that push the pushchair out onto the road thinking they have to stop when they put they're own toes next to the kerb and push the pram slightly onto the road without even looking.

    People that are stood on the bus stop and as I approach in my taxi put they're arm out, as though they are about to flag me down, then just look at the time on they're watch as I pull over.

    Those deliveroo bike riders on the road. Absolute pain in the backside the way they swerve and hog the whole road

    Oh Lord, where do I start ?? Probably my age but there seems to be a constant flow of annoying debris that comes my way each day.

    How about staff in restaurants who say 'ENJOY' when serving you, as if it's an order. Another crappy Americanism.

    Oh, the best [or worst one], football related. People like Hoddle and now others who refer to 'OFFENSIVE' players/tactics, instead of attacking. A perfectly good word used for 150yrs, replaced by one that has a totally irrelevant and confusing one -another Americanism !!

    Using the word 'ordinary' to describe a poor performance.

    It has been adopted from Australian cricketers (or cricket commentators) and - I think - is supposed to give the message that anything less than exceptional is not acceptable. It is OK when used by Australians to promote their winning mentality (alongside 'drongos', 'bush tucker' and 'poms') but sounds totally false and fawning when used by the English. Very ordinary!

    People who throw fag nips out of their car window, especially when I am driving behind them.

    Next door neighbours who have never worked a day in their lives driving around in a brand new 2017 Audi Q3 paid for by the tax payer.

    The look on the bloke next door's face as I drive past in my fancy Audi (paid for by my disability benefits)

    Miserable old git.

    They're famous in a quiz.

    "Which club held the FA Cup for six continuous years?"

    They won in 1939, and held it until the next comp after the war.

    People who wear huge rucksacks to work and bash them into you on trains , lifts and crowded
    places. Wannabee Quasimodos the lot of them.

    People who don't give you a thank you wave when you let them in a queue of traffic.

    The Americanisation of English especially the use of Impact.

    Where and when did the term Brit enter the English language?

    Try explaining to our colonial cousins over the pond that if we are Brits they must be Amers.

    When it comes to correcting them that what in fact they should be saying is Britons they look at you perplexed, as if the addition of o-n-s at the end of Brit was just to much to comprehend

    When you've been 1-0 down, then go 2-1 up, then with a minute or so to go, the opposition are in the process of taking their second consecutive corner and some confident fans start singing "1-0 and you f*cked it up".
