What Gets your blood boiling?

Post Posted: Tue Dec 28, 2010 5:31 am

I really hate SPAM emails, here is a screen shot of my inbox this morning and I am not joking 111 emails from the same sourse really gets me annoyed. Is there something that really annoys you? Then complain about it here.

Hi David,
Spam used to bug me until I got a spam filter... Of course I have to hunt through that for emails I actually want Shocked
It does take quite a lot to wind me up but one thing is parents who compare their children with other peoples in a competitive manner, or those who consider any parenting style other than their own to be Wrong! Agh!
Thanks for the chance to vent Wink

hi ermen70,
When I lived in a little village in the UK the one thing that really bugged me was the parents when dropping off their children at school in the mornings allways parked on the pavements, front gates, and anywhere they could, not thinking about the saftey of other parents/children who walked to school.

Not only that but many turned up in 4x4's taking up much more of the road in a small village street, that really made my blood boil.

Glad that I live here as the school run in the mornings is now a thing of the past, and yes my children walked to school in the UK and here, one of the most important things I looked for when house hunting in Spain and the UK.

David.

David, I totally agree with you! As a childminder and with 2 littlies of my own, we head out of the door like a mummy duck and her chicks along to school. Some off my neighbours who drive arrive at the school at the same time as me!
Our school has a no parking policy though, and we live in a 70's built suburb which was rather optimistically designed to encourage walking. It's actually not possible to park right outside the school.
Have a great day Smile
