JOSH MATAVESI THE NEW­CAS­TLE CEN­TRE TAKES US THROUGH HIS PET HATES FROM THE RUGBY WORLD AND BEYOND

The Rugby Paper - - Feature -

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!

2. Left­overs

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.
