People in shops and pubs etc who don't know what they want and take forever faffing about without giving the slightest consideration to the fact that there are others waiting. I have long been of the opinion that there should be a separate queue in these places stating "slow dithering indecisive cnuts queue her please".

People that stop at the top of escalators, people that take forever getting cash out of a cashpoint, people that drive like nobs.

Just people really.

Rude customer service. I'm giving you money that pays your wages, I have also said thank you, so I think it's only fair you do the same!
X Factor
Made In Chelsea
All other reality TV
Power companies who can't work out your bill properly, or not down a meter reading
My lower back
My lower back
My lower back!

Edit: some more...
People talking about the 'new Xmas adverts' like it's some tradition that has been going for years. ****ing donkeys

Boy/girl groups calling themselves "a band"

TOWIE, hollyoaks etc and the fact my mrs watches them

People in the cinema who either; wont shut the **** up, sit near me when theres virtually a whole cinema empty or sit in front of me.

Also the fact the cheryl ' the toilet thug' cole (or whatever her name is these days) actually has a singing career and has the cheek to mime on a show where she criticises peoples live singing

People who take up the whole aisle, whilst pretending they can't notice you waiting to go past.
Seriously winds me up, going to snap one day.
People that are self centered.
People that do nothing but whine all day.
People that are two faced.
People that are judgmental.
Sure there's more, might have to amend this list, anyway just people in general wind me up.

People who don't say Please and Thank you.
People who over estimate themselves while grossly under estimating those around them.
How its legal for supermarkets to sell 15 bottles of Stella for £8 and 20 for £14 on a permanent basis.  This is unfair exploitation of thick people.
