Top 10 complaints of 2007

Consumer direct, the government's exciting dial a whinge service, has come up with the top 10 complained about matters of the year. I suppose it must be because the list has been edited for relevance and things that the service might reasonably hope to be able to address that it focuses on second hand cars, mobile phones and the like.

In no particular order, I would imagine the (male) top 10 would be more like this:

  • 'This lousy weather' - (Has to be #1, surely?)
  • 'This useless council'
  • 'This useless government'
  • 'All this junk mail'
  • 'The traffic / trains / rush hour'
  • 'The boss / underlings'
  • 'Son's / daughter's etc new girlfriend / boyfriend etc'
  • 'The next door neighbours'
  • 'The England football / rugby / cricket / underwater tiddlywinks team'
  • 'This smoking ban'.

Perhaps you could now ask your good lady to supply the top ten female grouses?
