MATT HEATON 1. Pon­der­ous pedes­tri­ans

THE DARLINGTON MOWDEN PARK OPEN­SIDE TAKES US THROUGH HIS PET HATES FROM THE RUGBY OF WORLD AND BE­YOND

The Rugby Paper - - Feature -

I find it re­ally frus­trat­ing when the per­son in front of you walks re­ally slowly as you try to get some­where in a hurry, like on a rail­way sta­tion plat­form when you’re in dan­ger of miss­ing your train. These peo­ple don’t seem to have any sense of spa­cial aware­ness and you end up try­ing to side-step your way through the crowds. TRP VER­DICT: It’s as though I’m walk­ing in your shoes, it bugs me too.

2. Messy gym go­ers

I’ve got a bit of a CrossFit back­ground, hav­ing coached in Leeds for a bit be­fore mov­ing to Darlington, so I’m a reg­u­lar gym goer. The bou­tique gyms I nor­mally go to have a re­ally good cul­ture where ev­ery­one clears up af­ter them­selves; but the same can­not be said for the one the team at DMP uses. It drives me crazy when I’m left be­hind clear­ing up af­ter all my team­mates. TRP VER­DICT: You’re re­ally go­ing through the (tread) mill. I’m sure you can work it out.

3. Food shar­ing

I hate it when my mis­sus de­cides that what is mine is hers when it comes to food. There’s noth­ing worse than mak­ing your­self some­thing to eat only to have some­one else stick­ing their fin­gers in and help­ing them­selves. Ei­ther of­fer up a trade or ask for the same thing in the first place! TRP VER­DICT: We nor­mally leave is­sues like these well alone but, in this in­stance, we agree she is be­ing to­tally dis­hon­ourable.
