    What are some of the minor things that happen in your everyday life that just get on your nerves?
    For me...
    1. When i'm dunking my Chips Ahoy cookie into my milk, I over-saturate the cookie and it breaks off and sinks to the bottom of my milk glass and now it just lurks down their like the Titanic or something.
    2. When i'm eating a Klondike bar, it starts out nice and neat, but when I get down to the last square inch, the chocolate sheet slides off and it's just impossible to handle it without getting ice cream all over your fingers.
    3. When your laying in bed or on the couch, and your all nice and comfy after a hard days work, when you realize to your horror that the remote control to the t.v. is on the other side of the room or a few feet away on the floor just out of your reach! [​IMG]
    4. When i'm hungry and I go down to the 7 eleven to get a couple of hot dogs and they don't have any on the grill, or if they do, the nacho cheese machine is out of cheese.
    5. Those stupid advertisment inserts that they put in the T.V. Guide that causes me to skip pages when I try to flip to a particular day and time. [​IMG]
    I'm sure I have others, but i'm too annoyed to think of them right now. [​IMG]

    1. Why whenever I try and open a cardboard milk container does it refuse to open properly. I invaribly have to wedge a fingernail in between an force it open. Then I have a nice ripped cardboard for one side of the spout and the outside waxed edge for the other.
    2. Why do I always rip the bag when opening a Chewy Chips Ahoy bag? It's like they took the glue from the DVD Protection Stickers and made it a whole heck of a lot stronger.
    3. Why do the lenses of glasses attractdirt and lint. If every surface was like my glasses at the end of the day, the world would look like Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome all the time.
    4. If they always ask for the same information when you use a check at the grocery store, why don't people just have it printed on there all the time? If someone steals your checkbook, they've already got your drivers license as well as everything else in your purse.
    That was pretty therapuetic. Thanks

    You forgot to mention those annoying health fanatics who can't seem to mind their own damn business. [​IMG]
    Seriously, back on topic: my pager or Nextel 2-way always goes off to notify me of some equipment or network failure just as...
    A) I start watching a movie
    B) I'm in the middle of working out
    C) I'm spending some "quality" time with my wife
    D) I'm in the shower with soap in my eyes

    -People that talk on their cell phone while taking a crap in a public restroom.
    -Buying a new DVD and finding a broken hub in the case.
    -Noticing an error in your drive through order after you get all the way home.
    -People that don't through away their garbage after they have had something to eat at a food court.
    And the all time big daddy of them all:
    People that throw their fucking lit cigarettes out on to the road!

    (1) People who don't oil the chain on their bike so it makes an awful squeaky noise when they ride by.

    (2) Co-workers' bad breath when they lean over your shoulder to look at something on your computer screen.

    (3) Sorority girls

    (4) Forgetting where I place the remote when I take my DVD's out of the player.

    (5) Smokers

    Waiters that want to tell me their life history so they can make my service more personal.

    Restaurants where all the waiter leave their tables and go sing happy birthday all the time.

    creepers-- people who can't keep their foot on the brake pedal at a red light and have to creep a few inches at at time while they wait. Many creepers will then pause stupified when the light finally does turn green and delay everyone behind them.

    Being asked to input my account number on my touch tone phone, and then have the first thing a live person ask me for is my account number. Why bother asking for it as part of the automated process?

    Wow, I hate everything mentioned in this thread! Except the Bose thing. I don't care what anyone else buys.

    - Standing with the dog outside for 10 minutes waiting for him to go potty, finally giving up and going inside, then a few minutes later he wants to go outside and potty

    - Getting something in a restaurant and wishing you had ordered something else

    - Cell phones. Anywhere, anytime, I hate them.

    - People shouting to each other across the room in a public place (restaurant, theater).

    - Babies at the movies. Get a damn sitter.

    - Bad parents hitting and yelling at their kids at the supermarket.

    - Best Buy.

    I'm sure I'll think of dozens more.

    [*]Idiot retailers who demand to know all of your personal information. Radio Shack and Toys R Us come to mind. Why the hell do they need my address and phone number? Then when I tell them "no", they look at me like I'm some kind of asshole. Although, this can be fun: When they pressure me or otherwise refuse to take no for an answer, I tell them, "Look, I don't have a phone, ok?" - all the while I've got my cellphone clipped to my belt. [​IMG] I'm waiting for someone to notice this and call me on it so I can became irate and say, "Are you calling me a liar?", or otherwise try to convince them that it's not really a phone, it's a salad, and I'm going to have it for lunch.

    People who talk during movies

    People who talk at the movie

    Telemarketers in general - especially when they can't even pronounce your name. I always love when I get someone calling me about new local phone service...I tell them no thanks i don't have a phone. Or if they're in the middle of a long speech, i just stick the phone in the cushions and let them talk to the couch. But my favorite is when they are obviously reading from a script and I am feeling mean, i just agree with them until they need to "confirm my adress" then tell them no, and hear them flip out trying to find the right thing to tell me on their script...but i digress.

    Snapper cases

    Politicians

    the media

    parents who let their kids run wild no matter where they are
