    Pet Hates

    So what are your pet hates, the little annoyances you love to hate with all the hatred you can muster deep inside your hateful self, and why?

    Mine are Wedges & Charity Missies.

    Wedges, or:



    are the bane of shoe fetishists everywhere. If you need to be taller get some high heels, 'mkay???

    And Charity Missies may be typically Dutch, I don't know. It's upper class women in their 20's or 30's who decide to make their empty lives worth living by running some charity organisation. It's invariably about disadvantaged children in developing countries, and the missies invariably look like a Dr. Frankenstein concocted mixture of Paris Hilton and a nun. Case in point:

    President of RTDAS - Ryan ten Doeschate - The Freddie Flintoff of Associate Cricket
    Member of DNAS, ESAS - Dirk Nannes, Edgar Schiferli. Dutchmen can bowl.

    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Personally, I hate people who take tiny matters really seriously. Like people who complain in restaurants because their bread rolls are too cold - we had that guy in the hotel the other day.

    I personally hate it when people use tuppeny-hapenny words to make themselves sound intelligent & then rather ruin the effect by mispronouncing said word. It's hardly a multi-syllable wonder-word, but lots of people constantly say "pacific" when they mean "specific". Really winds me up.

    I upgraded about a month ago and am still getting the odd call about upgrading!

    You should call them back and ask if they'd like to upgrade their service level.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    yeah, i agree, had someone try to say epitome the other day only to say something that sounded like "epitoom", idiot.

    I dislike screaming small children immensely.
