Default Gripe of the day - What is yours?

OK,

For all those who are either pensioners or will be, lets have your gripe of the day, what has really pee'd you off.

Let me start the ball rolling,

I have found out today I am to lose my beloved SV650S - 3 years old she is and has been as reliable as a reliable thing could be. A mere 16K on the clock she's going around mid September - devastated.

Drivers texting. I pulled one up on it today and his response was "what's it to you?" Smh.

People who consistantly let you down. I no longer believe them, but it still gets my goat.

I hate lying backstabbing fatherless so and so's that say they're your friend and smile at ya while they're stabbing you in the back in the worst possible way.

Not to worry the phrase 'Dead To Me' has never rung so true.

and breath, I suppose this isn't just a gripe for today but the last wee while..

AND BREATH DEAN!

Drivers who don't say thanks when you flash/move over to let them out.

The bloody state of the roads... the constant looking out for potholes... sunken manhole covers...sunken drain covers...gravel everywhere.. plus what really ****es me off is the cheap top surface they chuck on the roads consisting of wet tar and tons of loose gravel and stones and call it road improvement..

Roofers that are replacing a roof, and don't look at the weather forecast. Leaving it exposed overnight.


Not my roof incidentally.
