    What gets your goat?

    Is it bad manners? Noisy (or nosey) neighbours? Crude dress? Expensive groceries? Rainy days? I know this isn't an overly positive toipc, but as is life, we're only human and sometimes things just tick us off...

    trendygran says: I agree, they make a truckload of money, raise their own pays and pensioners and others who are struggling get left out in the cold to manage as best they can. Even the banks are making billions of dollars and raising rates to an unrealistic high - so that home owners who can no longer meet their mortgages are being removed and left to find alternate accommodation - not to mention the staff who are being retrenched, so unfair in this day and age, how are their families meant to live day to day and pay bills etc.

    delilah says: People too old to remember when they were P,platers. I have a 19 year old daughter finished top of her class in yr10 of high school, went straight into the only job she ever wanted (apprentice chef) has stayed with the same a la carte restaurant for 2 1/2 yrs doesn't drink, smoke or swear. The most level headed person I have ever met or would hope to be but is constantly being yelled at, sworn at and almost driven off the road by people who think that because she is a P,plater she doesn't know how to drive. Maybe we could all be a little more sensitive to ALL road users and not ones we predeem to be good drivers. Perhaps with a little more patient understanding and a kind smile ( even to those who don't deserve it) would warm our hearts and you never know that P,plater might smile back, mouth sorry and be aware that they too have a right to learn to drive.

    Fatface says: From the appalling prejudice written here against P plate drivers (which I assume to be learners) I can only agree with you. When I started reading the comments I wondered what the vitriol was all about. I can hardly believe that all they are talking about is poor learner drivers!! Where did THEY learn to drive aI wonder and do they, with all their wisdom and experience now drive perfectly? I suspect not.

    Rev.Wal says: I agree Dot I'm nearly 60 and my peers scare me more than any P platers. They park 3 feet from the curb.park over driveways "cos I'm just ducking into the shop will only be 5 mins." Drive through shopping areas at 25KPh so they can window shop easier etc etc etc

    Sutho says: Unfortunately, all too often it is P platers who overtake recklessly but the other thing which is annoying is all drivers who start their turn THEN put on the turn indicator. Of course, all other drivers are not as good as me !!!
