I tried to install anti virus software last night, it took me 3 times to type the serial number in correctly, then I was taken off-line right while trying to update the software, then my computer froze and I had to reboot, get back online, it goes on and on..... all the time I could have been quizzing. |

Advertisers who think the best way you will remember and buy their product is to YELL at you.|
It has the opposite effect on me, I go out of my way to avoid these products!

People in line, in front of you, who wait until the transaction is complete before they even get their wallet or purse out.|

More annoying is when they carry 15 different cards and the last one tried is the one that can pay for the goods. This usually happens when you are in a hurry and paying cash for petrol and an iced coffee..|

Unfairness in the workplace, like not appreciating the work that some do and not noticing when others coast along.|

When I've been upset and people ask "Are you better now?" in the tone of someone talking to a 3 year old who has thrown a tantrum. |

I just hate it when I'm in a hurry and I'm stuck driving behind someone going five miles per hour below the speed limit. Grrr!|

My printer at work warned my on 11/19 that a color was about to run dry, prompting me to sprint to the office supply store and buy an ink cartridge. Yesterday I installed it. That bugs me.|

My husband. No, only joking,(sort of). |
Why is it so hard to accelerate up a hill?
My recent job involved driving over a bridge with inclines in both directions. Speed limit 80 kmph (50 mph).
Downhill, good. As soon as the incline rises upward, nearly everyone loses speed. 50 kmph (30 mph)Three lanes each way and it's impossible to find a lane to go any faster. Not because the lanes are blocked with bumper to bumper peak-hour traffic. No, it's because nobody accelerates UP a hill. I don't expect them to speed, just reach the speed limit!

People who really want to show off, but don't want to be seen to be showing off, so they spin it into a complaint. |
"Oh woe is me - it's so difficult and expensive and time-consuming supporting my child's talent. I have to spend lots of money on training and equipment and travel..."
"Oh woe is me - the work and expense of having 20 ... 35 ... 50 guests for Christmas lunch..."
Wouldn't it be refreshing if they just said they were proud of having a talented child, and delighted to have so many friends who wanted to join them at Christmas?
Although I did have a colleague who looked increasingly desperate by the day as her guest list increased, because she wasn't inviting them - her mother-in-law was. Ouch. So she was forgiven. Wonder if the mother-in-law ever was!

Reminds of the parent of one of my daughter's schoolmates in primary school. Always had to be one better than everyone and once asked me how many christmas cards I sent/received each year, not pausing to hear my reply before she told me she sent 200+. These turned out to include her window cleaner, the local paper shop, the paper boy, the milkman, her hairdresser, etc. I tip these people or buy them a pressie where appropriate, but I really don't bother with cards.|
Anyhoo, I gained the moral upper hand there - my reply was don't know, don't sit and count them, and also work colleagues and the like all dispense with cards to each other and donate to charity instead.
I cut down on cards a few years ago. I was prompted by the fact that every year for the last 21 years, we've received a card from Vera to Jack and Susan, who lived here before use. Something tells me they are not close if they've not realised that they moved house in 1988. I cut it right down to people who I at least have contact with at other times of the year and it's rather pleasant.
Vera, if you're reading this, they moved to Canvey in 1988.

And of the woman whose house was always festooned with cards and yet, when I stepped forward to take a closer look at one of them, she shouted at me for being nosy. I said if you don't want people to look at them, don't put them on display: end of conversation. |
But I am tempted to wonder if displays like this are twenty-year collections, lovingly stored with the tree and lights, and just hope you won't be found out when somebody looks too closely and spots "Happy Christmas 1989."
