It irks me when people post a link to a question I post as if I hadn't the intelligence of doing that already.

Links can be quite useful if someone says something that is factually incorrect. It's one way of letting them see the lightning without feeling the thunderbolt.

People who I haven't seen for ages who instead of exchanging pleasantries want to share all their moans and groans.

People on here, who pretend that everything is hunky-dory, even in the face of the contrary.

What irritates me?

Amateur poets

The ramblings of an amateur poet because poetry should be reserved for wordsmiths who know their craft not just anyone shoving rhymes together because the words happen to abut or chime together.

My friend Barbara used to reels out some stinkers using a concocted language of bygone archaic words like Doth and Dreer and Lest and Thee and Feard and Behold which, when clunked awkwardly together with some flowery Barbara based theme became as caustic and deadly a room clearer as any lobbed tear gas grenade.

Amateur and professional comedians

Fair enough if you pay to be bored by a professional comedian, I suppose, but what gives anyone the right to pour out a Gatling gun style stream of irksome jokes in a public place like a pub or, as I had to endure recently, in a hospital ward where, as a pinned down victim, there is nowhere to escape such an infantile assault?

You know the type. They just reel off joke after joke with scant regard or care as to whether their shrill outbursts are welcome or not.

I agree with you Strand, I tell them to shut up and then have an argument about whether they're a sexist racist pig, or I'm a feminist with no sense of humour. If I really want to be nasty I call out the game they're playing which is hiding thier fear of why they're there. I just ignore the poetry, if people insist on reciting it at me, its usually only the once as my blank look and question of wtf usually puts them off doing it again.

People who think they know better than me about something I know a lot about when they've only read a synopsis on wikipedia.

People who don't listen, especially when I'm paying them to do something.

People who state the bleeding obvious like its some great revelation from the gods.

I could go on until I run out of space and then fill a few more pages, so I'll stop now.

I fear Strand and and Minnie doth not appreciate the rhyme or joke
So I am not tempted at fun to poke

Now admit that was really good?

It's comments like that which make me feel I should choose a new career and that poetry is not for me. LOL.

I agree with you on amateur poets. I'd go so far as saying particularly those who believe it's a good poem because it rhymes.

Statistics often irritate me. Usually pointless and as the saying goes they can prove anything.

I couldn't agree more. When people run out of factual arguments they turn to statistics.
