Why do companies boast about having a 24 hour free call support line in case of any technical problems and then make it impossible to find the number on their website?

Had to google "what is the bloody customer service phone number" and it was the first result

I'll start because this is one of life's great mysteries to me.....

Why is it that the waitress comes over to you to ask you if you're food is alright the SECOND you've just spooned a mahoosive gobful in, so you can't actually answer her question without being rude or spitting food everywhere? How do they time that so well?

Probably the only time they can get a word in edgeways

When did it become socially acceptable for people to have the most ludicrous fake tans and claim it makes them look better?

Absolute farcebowls, the lot of them.

Why do parents feel the need to give their children double-barrelled first names? How did we all manage for so many years with just the one?

Why, no matter where you park, does someone always end up parking next to you, not giving you enough room to get in your own car, even though there's lots of other parking spaces?!

Why do people (and I mean mainly women here) think its ok when they have paid for something to stand at the counter sorting out their purse, handbag and whatever else takes their fancy.  YOU'VE PAID FOR YOUR GOODS NOW F-OFF AND LET OTHER PEOPLE PAY FOR THEIRS.

You forgot to mention the part where they wait until the cashier asks them for the money before they actually start to decide to look for their purse which is lost somewhere inside a massive bag.
