Life's irritations: Centre or Center?

As I grow older, I realise that I am becoming increasingly irritated by minor inconveniences. 

So, to save my family from putting up with my daily rants, I have decided to blog about them instead. 

Today I am annoyed about the way American spellings seem to be creeping into everyday UK life. While I like the diversity of the English language as it has evolved around the world, I prefer a little consistency on the domestic front. 

So when I realised that one of the 'compulsory' apps (in that you can't seem to delete it) on my iPhone is Game Center (not Game Centre), I felt the familiar unreasonable rage at a minor annoyance.

And don't even get me started on Center Parks!

What's made you unreasonably angry this week?
