When you click into an article telling you tips on how to save e.g. 20k in a year, and none of it is relevant.

"We cut our gym membership" - I don't go to the gym.

"We stopped spending 30 quid a week on takeaway coffee" - I don't drink iced, caramelised concoctions masquerading as coffee. Related TA is when these people insist they need a coffee to function or wake up - but you're literally consuming no caffeine, maybe it's the sugar you miss.

"We stopped getting takeaways five nights a week" - Seriously?

Another TA is the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, apparently "up in arms" about the imposition of fines for restriction violations. They suggest a "clear messaging approach" is more useful - hello there have been clear messages for 12 months and we still have people travelling 80km for a burger!

Get TA'd every time someone says 'floor' when they mean 'ground'. There are some exceptions of course, such as the ocean 'floor', but in general the floor refers to the surface you walk on when inside a building, whilst the ground refers to the surface you walk on when you're outside. I thought I might be going a little mad (maybe I am!) but it seems that I'm not the only one ticked off by this:

Did you not see that episode of futurama?

They've changed the name of ur-anus because of all the stupid childish jokes that were being made.

It's now called urectum.

Dear other dog owners, I know many hundreds of thousands of my fellow countrymen suffer from that awful disability of being an absolute lazy b@stard, but please explain to me the thinking behind going through all of the effort of picking up your dog's poo to only go away and hang it on the nearest tree/fence/wall?

Cop on and carry it to a bloody bin you twat.

Oh, it’s ok. They’re coming back for it. They just don’t want to carry it around with them. If you see it there tomorrow it must be someone else’s.

Email on your phone and ID should suffice.
