Little Things You Hate

Just yell "Excuse Me" and charge at the crowd when you get a sighting of your bag and hope it's not a bag identical to yours or just wait untill they all piss off.
Airport behaviour is irrational for a lot of people who would otherwise be normal. Like
- standing up in the aisle, with heaps of others, as soon as the seatbelt light goes off after landing, when you know you’re going nowhere for at least 5 minutes.
- when the gate opens, lining up to get in and sit in your cramped seat as soon as you possibly can when you know the plane is going nowhere for at least 5 to 10 minutes.

Absolutely.

Adding to that, cramming into the seats at the gate with every other bastard when adjacent gates with no boarding flights are completely empty.

Riddle me this, Batman...

Toilet at work is shared between 2 businesses, which is only relevant as we never see staff from there except in the toilet.
I was in there, having a piss, as you do, and this middle aged, bearded dude who looked like a keynote speaker at an Incel convention, comes and stand behind me and says:
Him: ‘Bit aggressive, don’t you think?’
Me: (pissing) Excuse me?
Him: ‘Using the middle urinal out of 3, don't you think that’s a bit aggressive?’
Me: ‘Maybe there was someone else using an edge one when I got here’
Him: ‘Well was there?’
Me: ‘No’
Him: ‘Well, no need for the aggression!’
Me: (audibly snickering as I zip up and leave) ‘Sure thing boss’

Is this a thing? Alls I know is that I will always use the centre urinal now, until the day I die.

You need to learn how to use all of them at once! Unless you are already doing this? The middle urinal makes for great cross urinal sniping. I personally prefer the long shot across the row.

Gotta get to a toilet that doesn't splash my 'business' everywhere!

It's a thing for people who still get 'stage fright', go the centre lane.

I have many pet hates , i am a real hater but airports are up the top of the list.
The worst thing about holidays is airports and all the wankers and security , planes with bossy hosties and screaming babies.
Last trip was to India OMG i will never go there again , the visa was bad enough but the airport bureaucracy and getting luggage Xrayed 3 times at Srinigar.
Oh well for a 100 rupees I could jump the queues.

What happened to the dry July weather forecasts? 3 days in and it's rained on all of them!!! I'm about 10 minutes from riding to work and it's just started to hammer down.

Airlines are fucking idiots. I've done long haul with a 12 month old before, it's just as bad for the parents. Airlines should seat all parents with infants together, not randomly placed throughout the cabin.

Currently watching a mad scramble for the gate and they haven’t even opened for boarding.

There’s even a guy with a neck pillow and it’s a one hour flight for fucks sake.

At least I’m in an exit row so I have some separation from these fuckwits.
