Most days, I write features on boxers and ballet dancers for a magazine site I helped launch two years ago.

How To Not P--s Off Your Barber - Herefordshire Live

People are idiots. They don't mean to be, but they just are. Every day your average Joe - or Jolene - will do somewhere between 20 and 700 little, seemingly insignificant things that infuriate those around them.
