its like those houses that home small...no scratch that, any children that is spotless

Whist at a friend's house last Summer, another friend with a couple of children (about 6 & 8) came round. The hostess asked if the kids wanted to play in the garden whilst we chatted. Mum was horrified - turns out they are NEVER allowed to play in ANY garden, even their own, because "they might get dirty". I weep for those kids.

I find the shoe thing a bit weird, never having been used to it in my own home, but it doesn't bother me.

What really grinds my gears is... people whining about how rubbish New Year is and it's really busy and you can't get in anywhere and you feel forced to do something and blah blah blah. I'm sure there's been the odd misfire but, by and large, I've always tremendously enjoyed Hogmanay no matter where I've ended up.

People who ask you to take your shoes off when you visit their house. As with the tightwad thing earlier, why go out of your way to make your friends and family feel uncomfortable? Is it really that important?

It's shoes off in our house I'm afraid, and it's a purely cultural thing.

My wife is Japanese and, over there, walking into someone's house with your shoes on would be a jaw-dropping faux pas akin to wiping your bare arse on the curtains.

I'm always embarrassed to have to ask guests who don't cotton on themselves, but it has to be done.

People who see me with my current partner, then I talk about a girlfriend I was with until last year. They they're like "Sp are you gay or not?".

It's called Bi-erasing and it pisses me the fuck off.

People are thick, this kind of thing is about reducing you down so you fit into the binary system of sexuality that is all they can cope with. Pity them, but don't let it annoy you.

Even so, I feel like we live in a two camp society. Your ever straight (i.e. desirable) or bent (i.e. undesirable) and people like me who like to keep our fingers in both pies* are considered myths.  :|

Friend requests from people I went to primary school with.

Yeah, let's be 'friends' - it'll be great! We can reminisce about that time we were briefly in proximity of one another a lifetime ago, and talk about how I can barely even half-remember who you actually are!

Friends are enemies you just happen to have met. You aren't in competition for resource with the stranger; you are in competition with your neighbour....you are both after the same thing. z

What grinds my gears sometimes is how people can be so accidentally ironic without realising it. 

For example, there's a push at my workplace to raise money for the British Heart Foundation (slogan 'Fight for every heartbeat!') with a cake sale.  A FUCKING CAKE SALE!!!!

Conversely, enemies are people you've met who turned out to be cunts.
