Let's disprove this, shall we?

According to a study done by the Journal of Affective Disorders, the Irish are among the least irritable people on the planet!

But are we though?

Here’s a list of stuff that bugs the listeners of the Early Breakfast:

 

  • People with no children taking the parent and child spaces
  • People who don’t pick up after their dog
  • When you are washing your hands wearing something with sleeves and water gets on the sleeve
  • People who don’t indicate while driving
  • When you're washing your face and the water runs down your arm
  • Tags that are sewn into the neck of garments. Rage!
  • When my headphone cord gets caught on something and my earbuds get pulled out of my ears. I get unreasonably upset every time
  • When I walk into a kitchen or bathroom with dry socks and come out with wet socks.
  • People who need drama in their lives
  • People who call in to say hello WITHOUT TEXTING FIRST!
  • Middle lane hoggers
  • Someone commenting on my food
  • Slow walkers, especially when I can't get around them. I just don't understand how people can walk so slowly
  • I can't understand how people bring children to restaurants and think it's okay for them to go running around and screaming
  • Parents giving their kids phones to keep them quiet or entertained.
  • It annoys me when people say, "Bear with me".  Not once have I seen a bear in their presence.
  • People who type very slowly on a keyboard
  • People driving under the speed limit in the overtaking line
  • When people hold the door open for me but I’m ages away, so I have to do the whole awkward fast walk thing.
  • Loud eaters! The wet slapping sound. Horror!
  • Space Invaders. People who stand a millimetre away from you in queues!

 

 

Yeah… we’re not at all easily irritated…
