- The fact that you had a book delivered to your house with absolutely every in town's home phone numbers in it (bar a few ex-directory people).

- Smoking in offices, pubs, on planes etc.

    Jumping off the bus when it was starting to slow down before your stop. Ditto opening the train doors and jumping out on the platform to try and beat the crowds at Cannon Street.
