1 - People who say "hence why" or "return / reply back". I have no idea where this came from but it's become so common in the last year or so. While I'm on the subject, the general standards of literacy here in England. I'm sure that there are people in other countries who have English as a second or third language who will have a better grasp of it than people who were born here, and that's something that the nation should be ashamed of. 2 - Ice cream vans. When I'm sitting in my garden with a book on a summer afternoon, I do not want to be subjected to the first 10 seconds of the "Match of the Day" theme tune every two minutes. I wish they'd ban the ruddy things. I sound like such a curmudgeon!
