The expressions ‘rocked up’ as in arrived, and ‘rocking’ as in wearing. Makes my skin crawl.

Or ‘bat shit crazy’. What the fuck does that mean, ‘bat shit crazy’ ffs.

People that spray lots of shitty deodorant in confined spaces. Lynx and shit like that.
Changing rooms at the pool or gym etc. Fuck off.

That bat shit crazy thing is from some movie I can't think of right now. Possibly fear and loathing or something with brad pitt.

I sometimes use rocked up but only when recounting a story where the protagonist turns up in a wretched condition ie you should have seen it he rocked on up to the funeral with the whole crotch ripped out of his jeans and ne'er a jacket to cover it type of thing.

The reassuring part is how quickly these phrases die back from being the flavour of the weak to occasional and appropriate use.

... and saying all that, there are 3 or 4 a week that annoy the shit out of me

Painting ceilings. It's hateful work.  Painting walls and woodwork (including the inevitable sanding) is enjoyable,  satisfying work.  Painting white ceilings white... There is absolutely no pleasure or satisfaction to be derived,  only pain.

And another thing!

Those new air pumps in filling stations that you have no control over and take a fortnight or two to pump your tyres while eating up all your change.  Unreal.
