JOSH MATAVESI THE NEWCASTLE CENTRE TAKES US THROUGH HIS PET HATES FROM THE RUGBY WORLD AND BEYOND
1. Trolley Terrors
A real bugbear of mine is shoppers lacking in spacial awareness. I get irate every time I go into the big Tescos near Kingston Park Stadium with people bumping into me with their trolleys, not looking where they’re going or sitting three trolleys deep having a chat with their mates and taking up the full width of the aisle. I don’t want to come across as ageist, but I have to say it’s people of a certain vintage who are the serial offenders. Maybe we need a points system for trolley users, like with driving licences. TRP VERDICT: You’ve every right to go wild in the aisles!
I’m not someone who could never be accused of leaving food on their plate, and it annoys the life out of me when other people do. When my wife and I went out on our first double date we went to TGI Fridays and the other couple left half a burger and half a rack of ribs. I had to ask my wife’s permission to finish their plates for them! TRP VERDICT: We agree, such wastefulness is hard to stomach.
3. Indication Frustration
Why can’t people use the indicators on their cars? I seem to magnetically attract these people whenever I’m on the roads, and I can’t let it go. If you’re turning off a roundabout, taking a turn at a junction or pulling out somewhere, just put your indicator on. It’s not rocket science. It makes me so angry, I should really chill out a bit, but it takes every fibre of my being to stop myself calling them out every single time it happens. TRP VERDICT: Blinking good effort Josh, you’ve done it again.
