Products:

Izal-style toilet tissue YES

feeble hand air-driers YES

 

Driving/parking:

potholes not adequately filled by council YES

cyclists riding on pavement NO (I don't myself unless it's designated, but roads are not safe for cyclists either, so under certain circumstances it's fine as long as respect is shown for pedestrians)

drivers chucking rubbish out of window YES

"half" speed bumps YES

chicanes [narrowing road to slow traffic] NO

mini-roundabouts NO (but they could be slightly raised to stop people driving over the top of them)

driving into parking space NO

reversing into parking space [so back out] NO

The above 2 are a personal preference. I don't think you should reverse into parking space in a supermarket carpark as it increases the risk of damging cars around you with your trolley & bags.

 

mobility scooters driving on pavement NO but proper training should be given to those that use them to make them understand they do not have right-a-way

using mobility scooter to jump queue YES

kerb huggers - driverrs driving close to kerb YES

 

Supermarkets:

leaving shopping trolley in parking bay YES

prams/pushchairs blocking aisle in supermarket while person catches up with gossip YES

 

Habits/manners:

not saying "thank you" for help YES

queue jumping YES

people walking too close behind on street YES

people walking in group blocking pavement YESS

tannoy announcements at rail stations YES

couriers who put parcels in wheelie bin without leaving note in letter box YES

huge charges for drop off/pick up at airports YES

Re: Off Topic Room 101

Suggestions for the next batch to be voted on are welcome.

 

@jonsie suggested: Drivers driving close to kerb especially through puddles...or is that something that needs to be offered next time?

So - driving through puddles is now put forward as a suggestion for Room 101.

 

Over to you guys for your suggestions. Remember anything can be suggested but persons and animals cannot be suggested or consigned to Room 101.
