    People that bring toddlers (or babies) to non-kids movies. Our viewing of Tomb Raider was peppered with a toddler running up and down the isle behind us, grabbing the bar that separates the rows and then bouncing back and forth going "ahh, ahhhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhhh, ahhhh,"

    When you are driving and the person in the next lane is multiple car lengths back but as soon as you flick on your turn signal you see their car surge as they floor it, trying to block you.

    And people that pass you and then slow down below what your speed is. I have seriously passed the same car 5 or 6 times with my cruise control set the entire time.

    I'm with you on this one.
    I don't care how fast or slow the other guy wants to drive, but pick a speed and stick to it.
    Brings to mind the line I saw somewhere: "Lead, follow, or get out of the way".

    Amazingly, my '93 Buick LeSabre HAD a chipped key. The starter went out a few years ago, so my brother in law replaced it for me. Got it done, went to start the car, and "security" kept flashing at us. My mechanic replaced the ignition with a regular ignition that doesn't require a chipped key. I'm sure that wouldn't even be an option on a newer vehicle.

    My new Honda Civic has electric windows that don't work after you've turned off the car. Oh, they do if you haven't opened a door, but if you walk around to the other side to get something out and realize you left a window down, well, on my old car I could reach over, stick the key in, flip it to ACC and roll up the window. New car has pushbutton ignition, ACC is one push w/o pushing the brake pedal, so I can do it from the other side, but guess what...windows don't work in ACC mode! Gotta walk all the way back around, sit in the driver's seat, push the brake, START THE ENGINE, then you can close your fucking window. Also, after starting, it's a full 30 sec before the electronic screen gizmo will let me turn on or off the radio or change the station. FFS.

    Either HIPAA is out of control, or my health care provider is. Just got off the phone with them, a large university health system. I asked for copies of some bills from last year to make sure I got reimbursed for everything before I lose what's left in my account on the 15th. They can email them..but only to a 'secure' email which I have to read through the Google Chrome Server and set up a whole password thing to get the attachments. WHAT? Well I can't read my work email through Google Chrome, ma'am, does a govt. email address work? No, it's not secure she says. What. OK, how about fax then. Is the fax machine secure? Well I think so, ma'am, I'm standing next to it. No, she says, someone could hack into it, or someone else could take the printouts, so we can't fax them to an unsecure machine. "you could sue us." She literally said that. I'm standing next to it with my hand out, lady! Shit. They're MY records, you're telling me you can't send them to a password protected email or a fax machine I tell you I'm standing next to? No.

    That's absurd -- one of those things that would never occur to you to check before you buy.

    My daily driver, a 2004 Golf, turns more an more out to be nothing but a piece of sh*t. This car has only 83000 miles but I have had countless electric issues. I have to buy a new car.

    My 40 years old Audi has 190000 miles and is still fine.

    When you go to use a solder sucker, (the spring loaded kind) - pick it up, and it isn't loaded. :mad:

    Not enough hours of daylight in a day! 24 hours of sun and 8 hours of night is what I need.

    When I'm reading a news story and a video pops up babbling about the story I'm reading, that's the pop-up that annoys. It would seem the news services have plenty of advertising displays without the need to post a video of the story also. Of course, there are probably those who don't want to read the story. If I'm not streaming and reading the speaker is muted.
