    Not sure if I'm going to get told off for this since I'm not sure why the last one migrated, but...

    I don't particularly want to see someone's bottom biscuits, but short of indecent exposure laws there's little you can do to compel people to dress decently.

    Coconut oil.
    It's just oil!! Oil that smells of coconut.
    When will this fad be over so we can go back to using butter for our cakes, vegetable oil for our chips and proper, non pore-clogging moisturisers for our skin?

    NO! It's just coconutty oil. Unless you're drinking pints of oil every day I seriously doubt it is going to make any difference. No one is going to live to 120 and credit their amazing lifespan to eating flapjack made with coconut oil.

    It's such a fad ATM - especially in vegan foods. I can't stomach it any more! I was never a big fan as it's too sweet and it just reminds me of Malibu or sunscreen.

    Yuk yuk yuk!.

    I'm not a vegan but almost everyone I know is - fair play to them but sometimes these fads are just as detrimental to the environment, and as exploitative to humans and animals, as eating meat.

    Drivers that are too impatient. On the way home, I drive down a road which has the entrance to a large car park. This road gets busy fairly often. So yesterday, a car who was going in the opposite direction to me on this road, couldn't wait to turn right into the car park so overtook cars not noticing me and three other cars. I stopped in time to block the idiot from turning right and said, can't you see?

    This is the fourth time this month where I have seen drivers do this

    I'm waiting for a couple of deliveries and I've become hypersensitive to every car door bang.

    Tesco keeps !!!!ing about with its own brand ranges. They've stopped doing the glorious pepperoni slice, they stopped doing their value handwash for a few weeks but now it's reappeared, they're messing around with their sushi and value fruit ranges...just stop!

    I hate that their offers typically run out on a Tuesday and cheap delivery day is Wednesday, so I think I'm going to get a great offer but it runs out the day before the delivery.

    Also, I'm struggling to hit the £40 minimum order now that I don't have to buy ready meals any more. Can't wait until we have a bigger freezer so I can buy more actual food and don't need to top up with junk. (Having said that, I can't stop eating at the moment so I may end up chewing my own hand off without the junk.)

    I agree about Tesco removing their own brands from sale, roll on deodorant, crackers, black rubbish sacks, three that come to mind.
