I Actually like Dance music in a Club or a Party. I am just tired of tuning into the Radio, and it's all dance/pop, or Top 40. I don't know the specific type of Dance, as i don't listen to dance and i am completely clueless to what the types are, but the one with the inane beat.

but hey that's just my grumpy opinion .

Ahhh, completely different kettle of fish. Some areas of "house" music have went completely commercial. Avicii - Levels, is pretty popular and has been playing on the radio for months now. I remember being in Magaluf last year requesting it and got told off the DJ it wasn't well known enough to get played. That's what really grinds my gears, DJs who play music to suit others. DJs should play what they want to, and it shouldn't be dictated by the top 40, what's current. That REALLY GRINDS MY GEARS

In addition to the above, poor speech in general. I get particularly annoyed at people who don't pronounce the 't' in words such as party, Martin or water.

1. Middle lane drivers - Seriously? Do you really need all that room either side of you. If it was up to me i'd give the police the power to dish out 3 penalty points for it!!!!

2. Fake tan - People of Britain, no-one believes that your tan is real. You live in Britain for christ's sake. I do not understand this need to turn yourself a patchy orange colour. You look ridiculous!!!!!

3. Business speak - "drive the business, moving forward" "blue sky thinking" "cascade this to your teams" "core competencies" "touch base" "manage our expectations" I hear most of this crap almost every day in the company i work for. Who makes this total nonsense up? Honestly, it doesn't make you sound any more intelligent. If anything you sound like an idiot. And you are probably a weird shade of orange

When I hear people say "touch base" I imagine that they are actually saying
"touching cloth" which makes me s****** like a schoolboy, childish I know

s****** replaced by giggle

Pedestrian crossings that don't give you enough time to cross the bleeding road.

Related to the above - drivers that think amber means go, and then beep their horns at you as you are crossing the road.
