    The person who keeps putting their sandwich in the toaster to heat it up, and in doing so has cheese going all over the internals.
    Then uses a Knife to jimmy it out of the toaster as it gets stuck.

    There is a sandwich press right next door to the toaster too.

    People that don't show up when you are expecting them, when you sell them something. Set of Lukey Headers and Y pipe for 50 bucks. I have had 10 people want them. Bloke was supposed to be here last night and then again tonight. Decided he has until 8pm before i call the bloke who rung me and must be serious. Decent extractors at a decent price and the bloke doesn't even reply, when I ask if he is still coming and that was over 2hrs ago.

    Low ballers, advertise extractors for 50 bucks and get a no show. Offer them to the next person and they only want to pay 30 bucks. NFW, i said 50 is a good price, no reply... good luck finding another pair at $50.

    Scammers , my dear old mum has had few calls from them saying they coming to fix her internet, despite her saying I don’t have internet and have no computer, she is thankfully pretty sharp and tells them to bigger off

    Yep, bloody phone scammers. For two years I've been getting emails, messages and calls for "Nathan". Another one yesterday. I don't know if it's the same crowd trying a hundred different approaches but after two years, you'd think they'd piss off. Yesterday's caller even sounded like a middle aged woman. I'm no gentleman these days. Told her to piss off. Second caller, another car crash scammwr, obviously Indian or Paki. Called him a c*** and hung up. Far out, two in one day. Thinking of getting a new mobile number but what a Pita that would be. My blocked numbers list keeps growing but they just use another number. Bastards.

    Dont block them, give the number a name (scammer), that way when they call, you will know its a scammer, & you can have some fun with them.
    After awhile they wont call, because you just waste their time.:rolleyes:

    I acted like a homosexual to one bloke who was a fake caller. He didn't like that. I also talked dirty to a woman once and the phone went silent, then hung up.

    I was thinking $150.00, then let them negotiate you down?

    Hopefully only the serious people will call?

    The problem with that idea is that, if you don't get the first call, they just keep ringing because they're auto calls. I've blocked some and ended up with nearly a dozen call attempts before they finally gave up. They are persistent maggots.

    large trollies in the coin small trolley bay, people walking on the right side of the isle, no yellow lines between crossing traffic, people who walk on the street when there is a perfectly good footpath on one side or the other. when someone pulls out in front of you, there is already a dent in the same spot you would have hit them.

    i will have to give more thought to this. very good topic :D

    I was going to say 'everything', but being new i thought i would be more specific :D

    (and for the record, someone will inevitably list my :D as annoying at some point in time. It's my signature that means 'it's all good in da hood' :D)

    To add to that, I hate when people walk their dogs on the road instead of on the grass/footpath. Where I live there is this sharp bend in the road to get to my street, people will walk their dog on the outside of the bend so you have to drive more in the middle of the bend to pass them. When you move over you hope to god that someone isn't coming the other way or bang.
