This was going to be a 5 things that annoy me post. Why? Because whenever you see lists they are neat numbers like top 5 or top 10 but when it came to writing my 5 I couldn’t narrow it down far enough, so instead this post will share the 6 things that annoy me.
I hope that you enjoy!

1 – Bad manners. There really isn’t any excuse for it. We all know please and thankyou and therefore if we don’t use them then it’s a choice and that is the choice to be rude. It really annoys me when people treat others badly in this way. I think it’s some sort of superiority complex coming out but for me it just makes the rude person look awful. There’s never a need for this kind of behaviour and I’m sure the perpetrators would be the first to complain if they had a taste of their own medicine!
2 – When the internet freezes. I use the internet a lot. I’m using it right now to write this and there is little more infuriating than to be right in the middle of something and the internet refuses to play ball. I don’t have loads of free time (who does?!) so when I have found a few moments to write a blog post or research a subject or even just switch off with some browsing the last thing I need is the internet grinding to a halt. I’ve ran out of time to complete a task on so many occasions and whilst it may not be the end of the world it is super irritating!
3 – Littering. You wouldn’t throw rubbish around your house would you? Well, maybe some people do in which case those people annoy me as well! I just don’t ever think there is a reason to litter. There are bins everywhere nowadays and if there isn’t a bin nearby then keep hold of whatever it is and wait until you come across one. Personally I keep a couple of carrier bags in my handbag so worst case scenario I can throw whatever in one of them and easily carry it until I come across a bin. Imagine if everybody didn’t care and we all littered! Just find a bin, it really is that simple!

4 – Personal space invaders. Those people that want to stand on top of you to have a conversation…I don’t need to feel your breath on my cheek to hear you! Also the people that feel the need to pretty much climb up my back when we are queueing, let me tell you that it will not get you to the checkout any faster! Just back up a little bit, respect my space, that’s all.
5 – Clutter. I hate clutter! I like everything to have a place and I like everything to be in its place, at all times. I know that sounds over the top and it probably is but I can’t help it. If the space around me is cluttered with stuff then my mind feels cluttered and I can’t focus or relax. I would rather spend half an hour tidying things away than feel annoyed and distracted. I’m sure my endless tidying would factor on a things my boyfriend finds annoying list though, he spends ages trying to find things that I have put away, I need to start telling him where I put them.
6 – Here it is number 6. The final one that I thought of that I just couldn’t leave off. Me. Yep, I annoy myself. Not all the time, but I really annoy myself when I don’t get things done that I want/need to. There are too many days where I set myself some tasks only to allow time to disappear without starting any of them. By the end of the day I don’t feel content for having a day off, I feel annoyed and frustrated that my list is no shorter. I must just be a professional procrastinator! Even if I get them all done the next day I’m no less annoyed because it doesn’t bring back the wasted previous day. I would love to say that acknowledging this has prompted an improvement but it hasn’t. I still have plenty of days where I do nothing except feel increasingly more angry with my lazy self.
