Not the big stuff; no point in going there.

#1 is my so-called Smart Phone that has the intrinsic ability to make me feel stupid and small. I have to resist the temptation to smash it daily. So I just avoid it....

#2 is one or a few hairs flying in my face, tied back or not. Yet I see other women (on TV, even) with hair hanging across their face, just going about daily business, half-blinded.

The first makes me lose my temper, the second I just cuss.

X2. It’s absurd to the point of being offensive. It’s the perfect end result of bureaucracy run amok.

waiting for people to get out of my way

I spend too much time on crowded crappy freeways with slow drivers and texting idiots

every time I go into a party store there is some idiot playing lotto with money better spent on their brown stump teeth or a bath

no matter where I go...I try to walk slow, take my time, relax...but I always end up behind others, wasting my time

I know this is ridiculous but it has become the bane of my existence

Right now? The fact that my Verizon service is so poor that I cannot even receive an iMessage outside of the guest WiFi. It's been like this for months.

In general? Commuting. I've gone for a ten minute commute to a thirty-five minute one. It's getting old. I live and work in a small area with very limited things to do, especially in the winter. Adding a long commute onto that really gives me the worst of a larger city without the positives of one.

My laptop's keyboard. It has a mind of its own. Sometimes when I hit a function key it does what that little label says it should but other times it chooses at random and sends the cursor leaping like a fish. The right hand Shift key is located too far to the right for a human hand. I end up re-typing or fixing errors endlessly because of this garbage. According to the local geek there's nothing wrong with the machine.

Keeping my house's dark hardwood floor free of dog hair. Every single white guard hair, crumb, leaf, dust bunny shows up like a beacon no matter how often I clean it. No, I didn't choose the stupid floor, I just live with it. The beings who selected that floor didn't live with any other living organism.

Drafts. I'm very sensitive to variations in temperature and can't stand feeling a draft. I'm going crazy with one now.
