    Online bill pay sites that intentionally disallow cut-and-paste. Really? I have to TYPE my account number... TWICE? I have it saved in a spreadsheet and it's so much more accurate to just copy it off the spreadsheet and paste it into the web site. To those that allow it, thank you. To those that don't, the other "you"-saying applies.

    Cheap plastic power and connection cables. Recently bought a couple name brand battery trickle chargers/maintainers. Despite that it shouldn't be necessary to mess with them too often, it would be nice if the cords had a semblance of flexibility below 70F.

    When I see those things happen (every day), I just consider that they are too stupid to be embarrassed by their display of such poor driving skills. The frequency of such incidents sure seems to be getting worse every day.

    Drivers who do not turn on their headlights well into dark.
    People who drive with high beams on without regard.
    People who stuff HID's into reflector housings that scatter the 5x brighter light.

    Maybe more a rant than pet peeve, but airfare bullcrap. Just booked some non-business travel and low and behold a new way to upcharge - at least that I hadn't yet seen.

    Cost $25/head more, per flight, if you want to be able to pick seats. Not the upgrade seats mind you, but just for the "privilege" to pick plain old 29C et al, instead of wherever they might stuff ya at check-in time.

    How 'bout the winners in life who keep the high beams on because one low is out and they neither want to bother to fix it, nor want to be pulled over for having a light out?

    Adults who still talk as if they’re still I their 20’s. Upward inflections at the end of every sentence and phrases like: “I just feel like.... for meeee....”

    OH YEAH!! More of the (yes, I'll say it) Millennial lack of self confidence. The guy in his mid-20's who was interviewed on the street right after the NYC mow-down did it- pretty sad, and in every other sentence he uttered! Before the flames come, this was not a thing before ~2010.

    Related: The Valley Girl thing- there are still vestiges of it in current generations and it is funny to hear 30+ women having it in their speech (TV included).

    Sunflower seeds....or should I say eating thereof.

    A co-worker has taken a fancy to them. Eats about 1/2 bag a day. We have low wall cubicles and generally the office is fairly quiet. The incessant spitting/blowing sound as he spits the shells into his little cup of waste really gets under my skin.

    Got a trivial peeve this day... the cork in a wine bottle that either gets poked into the wine, or breaks off half way out the bottle. Irritating more than anything.

    So true. They are called indicators for a reason, an indication of what you intend to do, not what you have already done. We have so many roundabouts and the lack of indication makes me really angry.

    Wiper blades and headlights? That's interesting. No such rule here- we have tons of sun showers here, no need for headlights. What about when the guy in front on the highway cleans his widescreen and you cop water on yours- do you have to turn on your wipers and your headlights?
