Pet Hate No. 1

People who wear Bluetooth headsets.

Not when they're driving. I can understand that.

But why do they need them when they're just walking down the street, or pushing a trolley around Tesco? I mean, what is so complicated about the simple act of walking that they feel they need their hands free?

Who do they think they are - Lieutenant Uhura?

I think we need to be told.

It does make it hard to sort out the crazies; it used to be that if someone was talking to themselves it was pretty obvious. Now, especially if someone has long hair, it's impossible to tell.

It can be quite disconcerting, too.

I got on an elevator ('lift') the other day and was greeted by a total stranger with a hearty "HELLO! Haven't seen you in AGES!".

I stammered out a non-committal reply while I was frantically trying to figure out who this person was.

"So how IS your mother these days? Is she well? Tell her I said hello!"

Who *IS* this person?!

"Oh, hold on, I have another call coming in..."

Oh thank God.

You make a very good point.

I'm old enough to remember when the crazies were so much more reliable!
