Don’t get me started on …
It’s only fair to talk about something that you can relate to. I’m sure by the end of my presentation you would be saying “Don’t get me started on”.
Controlled Assessments! Tell me about it. It practically gets on my nerves ALL the time. Ironically, I’m doing one right now. This proves how this is such a pressing issue for us at this time. It clearly gives us unnecessary stress and anxiousness until the daunting marking process is done.
The exam board: the least they can do is giving us some breathing space in between assessments. There’s literally like 4/5 every month! What also annoys me is the ridiculous task planning forms we receive. They are useless and the process to filling them out is even more outrageous. There’s a word limit and the “brief” notes, they really don’t help you in any way so there’s absolutely NO point what-so-ever in having one of those annoying things.
The immense amounts of papers we have to file up: The files weigh so much and they paper we get is so much, that it’s hard to keep track of things. And what’s even worse is when different tasks get mixed up with each other causing a mini tornado in your folder.
The task: This is one of the most stressful and nerve-wrecking part of the process. The anticipation to the task and the guidelines kill me. It’s so annoying how crazy the task can make you go. Then the additional tension of the dreadful task-planning form.
The Back-to-Back assessments: the amount of controlled assessments in one year is ridiculous. We have so many
The stressed atmosphere we have to write these assessments in. It's so quiet like an exam so why not just call it an exam to make it more simple? Instead they give it a name "controlled assessments" where it's actually counted towards your final grade and yet the name sounds so unassuming as though it is a fun thing to do where actually, it is a percentage of your FINAL GCSE grade.
There's also the fact that

    Don’t get me started on siblings. Everyone who has a sibling knows that they are the most irritating thing in the world. I mean who could blame me for thinking this seen as I am the second eldest of four, with two younger sisters and an older brother. Despite having 3 siblings I actually feel the pain of all those middle children out there as for ten years of my life, I myself was one of you.

    Don’t get me started on... Public transport. Don’t get me started on buses, taxies, trains or planes. Please don’t assume that I am some conceited, arrogant person who would never use public transport simply due to the ‘public’ aspect of it. I fully appreciate that public transport is specifically for us and is there so we are able to meet are individual needs, as well as to make our life’s easier, but sometimes public transport is not the best source of travel; believe me! Every citizen in…

The 'Pay Attention To Me' Plea Example: OMG that has so made me feel like crying Well, I'm very sorry that something has upset you, but let's look at this logically. If whatever this is has upset you so much, you won't want to talk about it, and thus will be made even more miserable by people continuously asking you what's wrong and forcing you to tell them.

    Don’t get me started on Football. Now it’s not really football – as in the game – that I hate it’s more the people who are actually involved in it in one way or another. Particularly; the fans. I like watching England play but what completely naffs me off is when you get shouty fans yelling at the screen when it is glaringly obvious that they have no idea what is going on. For example shouting “referee!” for no reason at the telly when the ref isn’t even in sight and anyway, it’s not actually…

    people each day, that would explain why every time I get on a bus or train half of England want to get on too! It is always so crowded you cannot squash another person on but they try their hardest to. Also, if you are one of the lucky ones that manage to get a seat, it is just as bad as standing due to you having a complete stranger's rear end right in your face! Another thing I find about Public Transport is, on the rare occasion you actually get a seat it's usually next to someone that hasn't washed…

    Where to even start? You go to a shop, buy an overpriced, outrageous, boring gaming console. Why, you say? Simple, everyone wants the new version; the upgrade, but one comes out every couple of months, so what is the point of getting the upgrade? Because the majority of the time the classic is better, rather than the new, plastic, imported junk. Sometimes you feel like you are going to explode, all the competing brands trying to steal your hard earned money, to give them more and more of an inflated…

    Don’t get me started on buses I hate buses. I really do hate buses, so much that it’s turning me insane. Just like you would get ready for your work or school, you will have to always get ready for your ten minutes of serpentine inferno. As a bus passenger for the last decade, I hardly ever get treated with the appreciation and respect I deserve as a customer. Don’t get me started on buses. I think the government should take a more responsibility to do something about the bus timing in the country…

    Don’t get me started on smoking…. Smoking, don’t you just hate it! Don't get me started on smokers! What is the point in spending hundreds or possibly thousands of pounds a year on a box of useless cigarettes? You might as well throw all the money you own down the drain! Or a more reasonable idea would be to save the money and buy something more useful and maybe go abroad!. You'll always seem to find that one selfish person who contently throws their money toward tobacco or cigarettes and couldn't…

This provides funds which are used for building schools, hospitals and other public amenities.
