Y'know what really grinds my gears?

Link Prime:
Did the forum ever have a 'Room 101' style thread?

Anyway, y'know what really grinds my gears?

F-ckin movie adverts that name the release date numerically.

Example; "The Raid 2. In cinemas April 10".
When's April 10? Anytime near April 10th?

Sorry. No coffee yet.

Daveycandlish:
It gets on my tits too. I'm glad I'm not the only one!

Why not even "the 10th of April". After all, I'm not American.

judda fett:
People talking on the quiet carriage of the train, either on their phone or to each other. You've got the whole train to talk shite that I do not want to listen to and still feel obliged to do it on the one carriage of the train reserved for people who'd like to travel in peace. Arseholes.

We were recently issued guidelines from a government department requiring planning reports to only use the form '10 April' which I find even more annoying. 

Trout:
Date formats like that exist in newspapers. The idea is to save the extra characters and, believe it or not, it can make a difference for fitting text into a space.
