The title says it all! What do you find "uncool" or not so fun? What are those annoying things in life that you just can't get around?

I'd like to keep this tourney fun so ixnay on such depressing things as plague, famine, and Michael Bay movies.

Everyone gets four automatics. Let's shoot for 32 or 64. I've already started the list.

When Someone You've Got "Feelings" For Already Has An S.O. (Extra points if said S.O. is a real asshole/bitch)

Eating alone in a restaurant—anyone who has traveled on business much knows this one pretty well. You can always tell the pros (or really desperate, such as myself) who arrive with a book.

Is there a pooping monkey at stake here?

1) Urkel

2) Mayonnaise

3) Speedos

4) Back hair

Don't believe me? Picture Urkel with back hair wearing only a speedo and rubbing mayonnaise on himself. Not very cool, now is it?
