Those Annoying Questions

Don't you just hate it when someone asks you a question, and you know you know the answer, but it just wont come to you at that moment in time? It happens to me so much!

And to top it off, it's only once the person who asked you the question has left, than it finally springs into your head!

And other things that annoy me are like the one below. If you know the answer, let me know in the comments.

Smoke hate

So I'm sat by the fire outside in the garden and no matter where I go the smoke seems to follow me! Stupid thing, why won't It leave me alone. I'm thinking of investing in some goggles to stop it from stinging my eyes although I may loose any social credibility I may have once owned..

In The Heat Of It

My car gets hot really really quickly. Even with just me in it it warms up. Yeh I have air conditioning, but it just drinks the fuel, and having the windows open creates drag that uses up more fuel. Stupid car. Thought I'd post about it as it's annoying!

Toe Stubbing

Argh I just walked into the table leg and stubbed my toe. I fee like my foot is going to fall off it's so painful! Who leaves a table in the middle of the dining room?!?!

Layout update

I've just updated my layout. It's about time I had a change around here!

Let me know what you think

Just blow you nose on it!

Sometimes, I get really really annoyed with people ask me for a tissue. Mainly because they pronounce it "Tizz-you"


It's "Ti-shoe"

Walk The Plank

This whole planking craze is really annoying! It's everywhere, and it seems that people think they are awesome because they have laid down in a horizontal position on top of a park bench or a wall. You aren't awesome, you are just another sheep following a craze.

So how many of you have tried planking?

Also, the picture is Eliza Dushku taking a break from helping to build a trauma and healing rehabilitation center for Uganda's child soldiers. More info HERE 

Eating the fuel

It's 2.25am here in the UK and I've just got in from a job I had to do at short notice. I ended up having to drive 114.8 miles this evening to a club and back as part of my work. That's a third of the tank already gone, and I already shoved £45 in today :/ Not good. Oh well, I am exhausted, and I need to be up early to, surprise surprise, do some more driving....

Watch This...

Another off-topic post, but one worth posting all the same!

Who'd have thought a little nut would burn for so long....

Now on Facebook!

We are now on Facebook! If you have a Facebook account you can "like" our page and be kept up to date with all of our blog posts.


Ok this has been a HUGE annoyance of mine for the last few years.

In England, we have our recycling collected (plastics, glass and paper). Each type is sorted into little tubs (where I come from its blue for plastics, green for paper and black for glass). they very big, only the size an A3 piece of paper and about a foot deep, so not surprisingly, after a heavy weekend reading all the rubbish that is pushed through my mailbox, or drinking plenty of booze, sometimes the boxes tend to overflow. Take the paper tub for example, any normal person with a brain cell would think, "Oh, I know, I will use a cardboard box to put the rest of my recycling in. I can use A) a cereal box B) a box laying around the house or C) next time I'm at the supermarket, I will take home one of the FREE packing boxes they have under the counters"

But this, it seems, is not the case. Because I'm constantly seeing people who think it is ok to put their excess paper in a plastic bag! A plastic bag?! Are these people really that stupid?

Seriously annoys me.

And these people are allowed to vote and breed.

Amy Winehouse

After the death of singer Amy Winehouse on the 23rd of July, I posted this:
I think its very sad that it takes a "death" for people to "become a fan" in a sense. im sure there were many people who didnt like her, but now decided to run out and buy CDs (or download tracks). I think the best example of this happening was when Michael Jackson Died, and his sales increased dramatically, even more than when lennon or elvis died. Its a shame that we live in a society that cant appreciate good music until something drastic happens and the media push it in our faces.
Now it turns out her album Back To Black is the highest selling album of the decade. The album has shot up to number 1 on iTunes charts in every country. Billboard has reported that the album sold 37,000 copies within 36 hours of her death.

With sales like this, musicians nowadays are worth more dead than alive!

Damm desk

So I just rolled over and hit my funny bone on the desk next to me. Now my whole left arm is fuzzing.

Why call it a funny bone when it's not even funny, OR a bone?!

Don't EVER refer to Mega Bloks as LEGO

One thing that really makes my blood boil is when you go into a shop and you see boxes of Mega Bloks among the boxes of LEGO. You wouldn't put a Nokia brick in with the iPhones would you!

Mega Bloks are not LEGO, nor are they anywhere near the standard of LEGO.

When I was younger and I would find a box of loose LEGO at a car boot sale, I would sort through it and take out all the "fake" bricks and give it back to the person selling it!

I think this has to be one of my biggest annoyances. I haven't played with LEGO for years, since I was a child but it still gets on my nerves!

Also it's LEGO. Not LEGOS. It is not plural, it is a collective term like "hair". You don's say, "Ooh I like the colour of your hairs" do you!

Guest Post - Tights and Shorts

Time for a first here on Dudethatsannoying: a guest post! This time from Nahhan. Enjoy

One major hate that I have is when girls wear shorts with tights or leggings underneath.
Shorts are for the summer, tights are for the winter. If you're wearing shorts in the summer it should only be when it's warm enough to; if you're wearing shorts in the winter, well, you're just plain stupid.
The worst part about it is that most girls wear lacy tights which don't even keep you warm. Or they wear skin-coloured tights. Why pay for skin-coloured tights in the summer when you can just get your own legs out for free?
If it's too cold to wear shorts, wear trousers; if it's warm enough to wear shorts, don't wear tights! It's so simple yet so many people get it wrong all the time.
And THAT is what annoys me. Could you tell?

Virgin Millionaire's House Burnt Down

During a storm last night, around 4am local time a bolt of lighting hit the roof of Richard Branson's home on Necker Island. Around 20 people have escaped unharmed but the building has been completely destroyed. His blog reads:

Thank you for all your kind messages after the fire on Necker. We’re thankful that everyone is ok.
We had a tropical storm with winds up to 90mph. A big lightning storm came around 4am and hit the house. My son Sam and nephew Jack rushed to the house and helped get everyone out and many thanks to Kate Winslet for helping to carry my 90 year mum out of the main house to safety - she was wondering when a Director was going to shout CUT!

Wish you were flexible?

I shall just leave this you wish you were this flexible!

Ordering Food

So the other day I ordered a chicken burger from a chip shop. I wanted it plain, no salad, no mayo, no nuffin other than chicken. The waitress even checked to make sure that I didn't want salad, but when it arrived, IT WASN'T PLAIN!

This happens to me quite a lot. How hard is it to follow instructions!?

How annoying

The UK Pink Floyd Tribute Show LIVE In the Isle Of Wight

This Friday, my band, the UK Pink Floyd Tribute Show are hitting the town of Shanklin on the Isle of Wight to give Pink Floyd fans a treat for the ears with a full two hour set and a feast for the eyes with a spectacular light and laser show.

Our show spans almost three decades of Pink Floyd’s history, from the first track on their very first album to the last chimes of ‘The Division Bell’, the Floyd’s final studio album released in 1994.

We perform note-for-note classics such as ‘Astronomy Domine’, ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, ‘Another Brick In The Wall’ and ‘Comfortably Numb’, as well as tracks from the seminal ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ album.

We've put a lot of our time and investment into getting the performance right and getting the sound right, so we’re sure you’ll come away with the feeling that you’ve almost been in the same room as the real thing!

Feminizing Hitler

In his new book Secret Weapons: Technology, Science And The Race To Win World War II, Cardiff University professor Brain Ford makes a startling revelation: Desperate to bring the Second World War to a close, British spies sought to surreptitiously “feminize” Adolf Hitler by sneaking sex hormones into his food.
The forced gender reassignment, they hoped, would soften the Führer’s, well, furor. According to the declassified documents Prof. Ford used for his book, MI6 agents planned to use tasteless estrogen supplements that would go unnoticed by Hitler’s food testers.
“There were agents who would be able to get it into his food – it would have been entirely possible,” Ford says. The plot was scrapped at the last minute, for reasons unknown.

Tragic Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse Kills Five

Tragic Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse: Five people were killed and at least 45 were injured when an “isolated significant wind gust” caused a stage setup at the Indiana State Fair to collapse. State Police 1st Sgt. Dave Bursten said the number of fatalities may rise.

Gov. Mitch Daniels said in a conference call to discuss emergency response that he believes the State Fair’s preparedness measures were adequate, calling the collapse a “freakish accident.” The Indiana Occupational Health and Safety Administration will be conducting an investigation of the incident alongside the State Fire Marshal.

Country music duo Sugarland were set to perform when State Police special operations commander Brad Weaver and the fair’s Executive Director Cindy Hoye made the decision to evacuate the crowd. Moments later, however, WLHK program director Bob Richards told the crowd the show was still on, though preparations should be made to find shelter in case the weather took a turn for the worse.

The collapse occurred seconds later.

The fair is closed today, but will reopen tomorrow. A public remembrance in honor of the victims will be held tomorrow morning at 9 AM.

Oh Dear...

Not annoying, just funny...

22 Fake Apple Stores Found in ONE City!

Ok, so a few weeks ago we heard about an American man living in china who had stumbled across an apple store in the city of Kunming in China, and we soon heard that another 4 had been found.

Now Chinese officials are saying there are 22 fake apples stores, all in this one city! In fact some stores tried so hard to be like the proper ones that they even dressed their staff in the same official apple store clothes and gave them all apple store-like lanyards.

The government have shut down at least 2 of the stores for trading without a license and the other shops have been told to stop using the logos as Chinese laws prohibit copying the "look and feel" of another company without permission.

It is not clear whether the shops being reprimanded were selling products sourced from Apple distributors in the country or grey market imports.

The Kunming retail watchdog said it would step up its monitoring efforts and set up a hotline through which the public can report unauthorised Apple shops they find.

Crazy?! First fake iPhones from china, now fully fledged fake shops!

Giant Kit-Kat

Now, I enjoy a Kit-Kat now and again as much as the next man, but this is ridiculous!

Unboxing the iPhone 5

Well, you guessed it, it's probably a fake (seeing as the iPhone 5 isn't due to be released for another month or so)

The video below was posted on youtube by ZAGG, a company who make "The InvisibleShield". Obviously a marketing stunt, but what a great way to get publicity!

I'm annoyed that, due to my contract, I wont be getting the iPhone 5 for another year (when 2 year contract runs out) and by that time, the iPhone 6 is sure to have arrived. Oh well.

M1 accident emergency lane blocked

This dude is a genius! There is a traffic jam on the M1 and he gets out and starts interviewing the people BLOCKING the emergency access lane (the hard shoulder).
In the comments, the cameraman (gavgav27) posts "
Ok, lets begin with I do indeed make many errors, im not a saint and i was actually breaking the law by walking down the carriageway. I was showing that they have just not considered the consequences of blocking the lane.
And the emergency vehicle didnt get down the hard shoulder with no problem at all... They had to wait at least 4-5 minutes for the cars that were blocking it to filter back into the main carriage way. 4-5 minutes can mean the difference of recovering quickly or becoming a vegetable for life.

What do you think?

Riot update

Just some before and after photos of some of the targets of the UK riots:

Airport Drop-off Fees

So I've just got in from dropping my partner off at the airport (She just text me, she's arrived) and I decided I had to post about the daylight robbery that is Airport Drop-off Fees.

To drop her off it cost me £7.50!


What a rip off!

She'll be walking there next time!

I'll just leave this here...

Unrelated to the UK Riots, but funny all the same:

London Riots

So It's now the 3rd day of rioting in London, and some idiots in Birmingham and Manchester as well as other cities are deciding to join in on it. Absolute morons.

This really REALLY annoys me, and in a way upsets me. Peoples homes and business has been destroyed by thugs looting shops and setting fire to buildings.

One of the most famous image of the destruction is this one. Not only was the carpet shop below destroyed, the 20 odd flats above it were destroyed. The building is being pulled down tomorrow as it has been completely gutted.

Shocking isn't it?

Grammar Rage!

Ok so I just got this comment:
Congradulations! I'm not even close to one myself, but I'm glad to hear your blog is doing well!By ****** on Adsense on 08/08/11
CongraDulations? with a D? Jeez! It's congratulations. Sort it out dude!

oh and another thing is when people refer to a cheque as a check (or even a chek). Most annoying

Monday, 8 August 2011


Not overly relevant to this blog, but I thought I'd post about it anyway.

I got my first cheque from Google Adsense today in the post (It sure took its time to arrive!). Its amazing that my blog has done so well over the last few months and I'd like to say thanks to all who visit and read about the little things in life that annoy me.

I'm off to the bank to pay it in now and then I'm gonna buy me something nice.

Apple > US Government

I heard today that Apple have more cash than the US Government. Apple have $75.88 billion in cash (yes cash!) while the United States only have $73.77 billion.
The Financial Post reports this news, and you can check the United States Treasury and Apple’s last earnings call to compare. Apple actually has more money than that compared to the US, considering the US “operating balance” only refers to the amount of money the country can spend before it hits the debt ceiling.

Apple can proudly say that it’s richer than one of the world’s largest and most powerful countries. Now THAT'S something to be proud of!

Help a Stranger

I have been approached by one of my followers asking if we could take a few minutes of our time to help him win a competition by voting for his photograph. I wouldn't normally do this, but because he follows my blog daily I agreed to help him out. So if you would like to help him too, this is what you have to do:

Step 2: click "Vote" under the number of votes
Step 3: allow easypromos access to your account (don't worry, it doesn't do anything, but if you don't do this step your vote wont be counted)
step 4:  feel good about helping a stranger

I will thank you now on his behalf.

The Great British Seagull

Jeeze the seagulls in England are huge! And they're strong, the other day I saw one pull a full bag of rubbish along a carpark!

Also, why is it that they feel the need to nick everyone's food? Chips, Sausage Rolls, Sandwiches, anything, they will have it!

And they are so noisy. Kept me awake most nights while I was on holiday (Don't they ever sleep?) One particular seagull decided to eat its way through the roofing on the cabin I was in, so I was rudely awoken on Wednesday by the rain dripping through onto the pillow!

Do you have seagulls where you come from? If so, are they as annoying as ours?

Guess Who's Home?

Well, I'm home from a week in Cornwall and man has my blog been neglected! Overall traffic is down which isn't great. But don't worry, during my week in the sun (and rain) I have found many things that annoy me, so over the next few days I will surely be blogging!

I got home a little over 2 hours ago after a 10 hour drive from the south of england back to my house, so I'm now going to bed. More in the morning.
