Loud, tinny music emanating from people's headphones and not being able to find a comfy seat in a pub (preferably at the bar).

The shrunken suit fashion for young blades over the last few years. Why!? It looks ridiculous and flipping uncomfortable. Reminds me of Norman Wisdom.

And there I was thinking it was the snowy white bodies / sunburnt arms combo.

Or shirtless men in a crowd - eugh!

God yes. There are a disgracefully large number of adults that pelt along pavements and expect us pedestrians to leap out of the way. And any cyclist going through a red light should be made to scrub every toilet in the nearest HM Prison for a year - I am fed up of near misses as I cross the road, last one being this morning at the top of central hill. And the xxxxxx cyclist had the rank idiocy to shout at ME!

Irrationally irritable grumpy old men & women.
I do rather like the tight fitting suits,though.I can wear them cos I am no longer a young rake,just an aging one.
Likes rock and roll,country and western and hip and hop

people who stand or sit at the bar preventing you from getting served / younger people looking at you like youre an ol git / any idiot on a mobi type device (or headphone arrangement) in public who's unaware of whats going on around them but especially ones crossing the road or meandering and gesticuulating all over the pavement / people who come up to you and say "have you got a spare fag mate" . nonchalant morons who waltz thru doors you hold open for them without a blink

will have to get my other 47 prioritised before typing on here!
