Intolerant people who moan about rucksacks and coughing.

People moaning about other people selling off their own property.

Wankers in general (this has nothing to do with the above posts)

By all means take a rucksack out with you just try not to bash people with it or take up an entire aisle in a shop. And if you have to cough just cover your mouth!

Lol, I do love a rant at a rant.

It's the generalisation I dislike so much.

To be fair it works both ways. I've seen idiots on the tube with massive rucksacks oblivious to their surroundings and then, sometimes, when I'm at my local shop I have people stand so close to me that removing my rucksack so I can put my purchases into it means me stepping out of the queue so I don't bash people.

No one is perfect. The coughing thing I actually agree with.

Would like to add people not using indicators on their cars, or at all, correctly.

Cars not indicating, yup, and a thousand other traffic offences -- which we covered in this thread (maybe) ?
I'll just add... driving in darkness with no lights on. I know the nights are drawing in, but come on...  :o

Speaking as a learner driver it actually frightens me a but how much bad driving ethic exists in Manchester. People who don't indicate, or even slow, to turn into a side street, tailgating, verbal abuse, and impatience.

Hmmm... My friend's girlfriend has a sticker and parks in disabled spaces all the time.  People give her filthy looks as she hops out of the car looking fit and healthy, but the truth is that she has MS and not long ago had to relearn to walk after almost a year in hospital.

She has a blue badge then that's fine, it's the people who don't but who park in the disabled parking bays I have a problem with.

Discovering the Zenith books are on sale, only for volume 3 to be removed from sale whilst I'm trying to add it to my order.

Bah!
