Slapping people who are looking over my shoulder
The young lads at work like to listen to radio 1 in the works van. Its absolutely crap and drives me mad.
I am on holiday next week so reset the van radio so that all stations are on classical fm. Childish I know !
That would be on the major things that bug you thread for your work colleagues.

I had a twat use my van for only one day a week and he constantly changed all the stations, I am a bit ocd and had radio 1 on 1 R2 on 2 but for some weird reason up here they like to put CFM on 2 and R2 on 4 but being sad I had R4 on 4.

The thing is there are 10 stored slots, I stored all his shit channels and left him a note sellotaped over the controls telling him to try channels 7-0 he still changed them all, so I then resorted to detuning all of them on my last day and deleting his phone from the Bluetooth menu.

Petty stuff lol

ps I agree R1 is shite

Still dreaming
Football reporters and commentators who will almost always give a 1-0 scoreline as a goal to nil
Usually, there's a little delay - as if it's been learnt in reporter school e.g. "...at the Etihad, where Manchester City lead Liverpool by a goal, to, nil.." No! It's one nil! Just say City lead one nil. We know how these things go; score lines aren't complicated. (I know I know, apart from Forfar 5...!)

Then again, there's always Glen Hoddle who, when he was on the radio, would refer to nil nil as nought nought - f'kin idiot.

London/south east centric weather forecasts, especially BBC Breakfast and BBC Countryfile - just watched this weeks instalment of Countryfile (a programme I used to enjoy but find increasingly annoying) and the week ahead weather forecast with words to the effect - "after a dry January we're going to end the same way, dry" - yet again london/southeast centric, it's been pretty wet here in Manchester, and it's persisting down right now as I type with storm Corrie on it's way. Grrrrrrrrrrrr!

Got to say, I also hate radio 1, and have done for years (decades?), mind you I'm also getting to hate radio 2 as well!! - must be getting old!
