Personalised car number plates (the height of bad taste), attention-seeking behaviour (ditto). Strictly-X-factor-get-me-out-of-here-Brother, people up their own backside, lack of education (OK maybe you were disadvantaged, but so was I), drivers that don't use indicators on roundabouts. Creeping americanisation of the english language (center, labor, favorite, organized, etc.), american spellcheck software that tells me I've spelt it wrong when I haven't. Stephen Fry, Bjork. IKEA flat-packs with daft names like 'SKOG'.
