Accident/ incidents etc, first thing people do is get their mobile out instead of helping or keeping out of the way so the relevant people can get on with their jobs.

Dash cam drivers who think they own the road and rules don't apply to them.

Cyclists who come up to the red light come out of there box for cyclists at traffic lights then go on to the pavement then then cross on the green man then go back on the road and carry on . If they are on the road they should be sticking to the rules of the Highway Code red light means stop !!!!!

Checkout staff thinking I’m an octopus when firing my stuff through the till at 100mph to meet targets, it’s supermarket sweep, without even saying hello or looking at you.

People you let past but don’t acknowledge you

The lack of understanding how a roundabout works

People that stop at roundabouts when there is no cars coming

Fake news and Media

The owed culture that they are doing the owner of the business a favour by working for them

Call centres I call daily using excuses, 45min wait to get told not correct department yet the number was on the letter then set out, they pass me into next line then all I hear is hello hello hello can you hear me then the phone goes dead

God I have started know

Roundabout lane discipline. There are two lanes.... TWO F'IN LANES!!!

I have a suspicion 95% of the things that will appear in this thread will boil down to selfishness.
