50 people who are really, really annoying. 

Worryingly, this isn’t exhaustive. 1. People who scrape plates / yoghurt pots. 😡 2. People who chew loudly. 😡 3. People who talk with their mouth full of food. 😠 4. People who talk with their mouth full of drink. (If you’ve seen it happen, you’ll know.) 😤 5. People who start singing a different song when I’m already singing.…
