Up at the top of my list with clearly going ahead of someone at the pub who has been waiting longer
Proper boiling point if they have just turned up and the bar staff goes who's next and they pipe up straight away

evers ?

The bar thing boils my piss bigtime. Students and women do it all the time.

Bus/train getting on before letting people off also, although it's not that common up here.

Getting off the Jubilee line at Westminster is the worst for this.

Whats worse is when your packed on a train and there is no room and people think its totally acceptable to push you and barge you so they can somehow squeeze on. I have had numerous arguments because of this, tethering on giving people a this is Sparta kick at some points.

Yes, and it's strangely enraging. Very tempting to impede their progress but then you are just blocking other people behind you as well.

I know it's tourists but how can they not grasp such a simple concept? Surely it's the accepted practice everywhere?

People's spatial awareness and common sense go out the window when they visit another country. Brits are just as bad when abroad.

I find tourists are worse for just stopping dead in their tracks with the trolley case in tow.

People pushing on usually seem to be commuters

I'd argue that most people have zero spatial awareness.

How many times have people stopped abruptly in front of you in the supermarket, or in the street like they were hit by a bolt of lightning?

The worst is at the top/bottom of an escalator. There's nowhere for you to go!

Euros are definitely worse for this. You go to a gallery/exhibition etc on the continent and they wil literally just rock up and stand in front of you when you are looking at something

Bought a pair of gloves and a neck gaiter from two different outdoor online shops with easily removable logos and when I got them not only did the gloves have a massive logo printed on the back of each hand it was a reflective print! Same with the neck gaiter, small patch logo stitched in on the website, when I got them; Massive embroidered logo.

Whilst we're on the tube hates I'll throw in people with backpacks that keep them on their back in a packed train. Then they start moving about and whacking everyone with said backpack. Fucking arseholes.

Complete strangers who excitedly exclaim 'Bless You' from their changing cubicle when you sneeze in your changing room cubicle at the gym. Cunts.

Black Friday 'week.' Says it all really.

Bars linking their new food menu to the history of the building. 'Burger inspired by the hard working milliners of the early 1900s'

Also, the newest twatty fad for having industrial sized kegs above the bar, 'this is imported directly from the Czech Republic plant,' as if it tastes any different.

Finally, beer served in a schooner as standard.
