I hope nothing else is missing as well. Keep the house locked up tight.

Paint tin lids that aren't on properly when you shake them are an abomination unto Nuggan.

People who automatically assume that you 'text' are an Abomination Unto Nuggan. Also people who assume you accept voice mail on your cell phone and/or that your cell phone is always on. :angry-banghead:

Oh yes, I like that one. It seems to be the norm that people think that everyone has a mobile phone.

To continue on with the mobile phone theme, Sir Ian's got it right.



Not having Sir Ian McKellen's superpower is an Abomination Unto Nuggan.

Virgin's customer service is an abomination unto Nuggan.

20 minutes on the phone at an expensive rate and I'm still pressing buttons. Then I pressed the wrong button and had to start again..........

people who stop suddenly or groups of people who block aisles whilst chatting away oblivious to anyone who want to get past get my goat

Non english speaking ie tourists who stand in the middle of the pavement and take photos of something they do not understand nor will remember but manage to stop everyone else from passing by or shopping or even just having a casual stroll.

Ghost I so sympathise!

A lighter aside:
A friend of mine once told me of a conversation he overheard between a a tourist couple in Haworth:

"Honey, will ya look at that!"
"No - just take a photo and I'll look at it when we get home"

Just about says it all, really....

People who get in the way whilst I'm walking through the station are an abomination unto Nuggan. They stop suddenly, or switch lanes or turn around without warning.

Honestly, it's a good job I'm not allowed a gun......

A bit like me then*. ;)

Locals who get in my way when I'm trying to take a photo of something interesting are an Abomination unto Nuggan**. ;)



*Only kidding, I do try to make sure that I am not blocking the pavement/road/doorway, etc.

**Still kidding although I do get a bit irritated by people who see I am taking a photo and just casually walk through it or stop and stand in the way. Mind you, I don't look much like a tourist with the amount of equipment I am lugging about (tripod, lenses, type of camera, etc.). It can't always be helped and one of my most successful pics (London Civic Hall) took about 45 minutes to take while waiting for the steps to sufficiently clear of people.

Then one judge said it needed someone on the steps to create focus. :lol:
