    I can relate in a way, lol. Our dogs aren't as physically tall as your lot but are still big dogs. We have a Bull Arab thats a huge tank fo a thing and a bull mastiff x boxer which is almost quite intimidating in size and added she's brindle, that seems to frighten people (although she is a sook).

    They are outside however as our house in only little. I chuckled at the Tradies part because when the tree fell on our house and we had all the tradies coming around to do their work. They were all petrified of the dogs. I remember one squealing like a girl and getting into a trot because I walked past him (about 5 meters away) with the Bull Arab.



    Our girls are very well behaved however. Particularly the Mastiff. Actually one thing I hate is the limitations to where your big dog is invited too when everyone else has their dogs around (as in other people where invited to bring their dog, but yours isn't allowed because of its size). Just because your dog is big. Even if your dog is 1000x more behaved then theirs.

    I hate being invited over somewhere then being ignored half the time as the host is too busy on fb or is having an intense text convo with someone else.

    no soap in the bathroom and dirty poo stained nappied laying around everywhere are another couple of things.

    Well I used to go to a ex Friends house and it was so revoltingly unclean! I hated it.

    Floors black and covered in human hair, crumbs, mud.

    Dishes caked on with food and mold piled up on every space in the kitchen.

    Dinning table FULL of rubbish and clutter.

    Lounge room was always filthy and the lounge was stained and revolting, once her son had spilt a whole bowl of pasta and she didn't even bother to clean it I hated it. I offered to help her clean because it was revolting. She accepted and I got the kitchen looking great, a week later... Back to filth.

    Seriously this was beyond a messy house, it just unhealthy. I HATED going there.

    I also don't like dogs that jump on me inside and I'm sorry this may gets stoned but I HATE going to someones house, sitting on their couch and getting COVERED in animal hair!! Yuck!
    I have 2 cats, 1 bird and a dog. Sit on my couch and I promise there will not be one hair . It also gives me extremely bad asthma and I think it's just gross. Sorry.

    Yes, definately.

    DD's school allows dogs to be present at pick up and drop off times, as long as they're on leash. They have 'no dogs' signs on the fences but it's never enforced. The teachers and the principal make no mention of it and pat the dogs that are inside the grounds.

    None of my dogs have been allowed through the gates yet. They have a gate moniter, and about three times now I've had to rush home and rush back to school for pickup, while SWFs {small white and fluffy} go in and out of the school with their owners.

    My dogs have had formal training since they were 8 weeks old, and all of them have their CGC awards {canine good citizen}. They are as finely trained as I could get them without becoming a sort of doggy dictator.
    But every single time we're stopped at the gates and told "no dogs during school hours", while a few metres behind the moniter two ladies with their Staffords are having a good old chat in the school grounds.

    Maybe if I drape a rug over them I can pass them off as oodle mutts and get in that way.

    Haha maybe I'm just lucky cos we live in the tropics and really only venture into peoples houses to go to the bathroom so its quite easy for me to be sitting on the verandah of someones filthy inside house and never know!

    I hate dirty bathrooms.

    I hate music being played so loud you have to shout at the person sitting next to you. Thats hardly a nice social gathering! Unfortunately my husband is a serial to loud music player! GAHHHH!!

    And a big apology to my friends who hate dogs, I also hate my dog jumping up and she is a well behaved loving dog. TOO LOVED! this is the problems she thinks everyone should love her and play with her as much as we do! Seeing as we sit outside apart from reprimanding her (which we do!) I am so sorry! She is a lovely golden retriever though, who at 4 still think shes a puppy! Also I have a white cat, her fur even annoys me but its like invisble and isnt noticed til you sit on it!!!!

    No soap in the bathroom
    No toilet spray
    Dirty undies on the bathroom floor
    Porn left in the toilet, or flashing on screen savers etc
    Tacky nudey beer coolers etc especially in houses with kids
    Smoking
    Music up too loud
    TV on loud unnecessarily
    if there is stuff on every seat and hence nowhere to sit I feel mildly put off

    Yeah the dirty undies thing is a bit much. Dh and I used to visit a friend and the house was filthy. Their toilet was in the bathroom and I would literally have to step over a week of dirty clothes for a large family, so you couldn't even see the floor. Worst was all his partners knickers staring up at me as i sat on the loo *shudders* I know how hard it is to maintain a household with kids, but she had obviously never heard of a laundry basket? lol

    If it is really filthy. I'm not talking messy from a couple days of no housework, i'm talking hasn't been cleaned in months or ever.
    Generally being disinterested in the fact i'm there and making me feel unwelcome.
    Being invited over and then discovering when you get there someone is the house has gastro - please don't invite me over if you or your child has gastro ffs (yes, this has happened to me)

    OMG, yes!!! You wash your hands and then look around and only the bath towel is there, and you wonder whether that was the bit that dried their bum . I usually let my hands air dry if there's no hand towel
