Other people wind me up! I was recently in a traffic jam with my husband and he was not a happy bunny!  We had been warned by the electric signs on the road that we were heading towards a hold-up about 30 miles further down the road, so we knew we were in for a wait – over an hour of delays, it turned out.  However, after 5 or 10 minutes the chuntering began “Look at that [idiot] over there”, “Oh no you don’t matey, you’re not getting in in front of me…” and so on.  I wasn’t wound up [...]
