This is the thread for all those gripes that you know are so unimportant in the grand scheme of things, and yet you cannot help but let them bother you.

For instance, do you know what really grinds my gears? The fact that I always offer to get tea / coffee for my colleagues, but there is this one guy who never EVER offers to get drinks for anyone else and only ever thinks about himself. He just got up a couple of minutes ago to make himself a cup of tea, and didn't say anything to anyone.

Also I bought a can of drink out of a vending machine yesterday and it should have given me 20 pence back in change, but instead it only gave me 10 pence.

Grrr.

Your turn. The more insignificant the better.

People who call Borders to ask what the phone number of the place is. Come on.

Also, students who have to always answer every question the professor has. It's doubly annoying when the professor expects answers and that person isn't there.

People who eat while they're on the phone to me.

People who get on the subway before I get off.

When cars stop to let me by when I'm happy to wait for the signal to cross - then they watch me pass by. Creepy.

People who never talk/laugh/make coffee in the office shouldn't be there man! Go work on a farm.

same for subways. Especially at busy stops. Somewhere like Times Square or Grand Central, like 50 people get out of each subway car, yet the people on the platform don't seem to realize that and just push right in and block the subway door.

can of drink, that made me chuckle.

But ya, I havent driven in many other places but, SoCal drivers piss me off. Especially ones that drive with their fucking dogs on their laps and the ones who eat while driving, especially on the freeway. And I dont mean a Granola bar in one hand and holding the wheel with another. I'm talking about a fork in one hand and a bowl of salad in the other, driving with your knees. Arrrgh

people who are far ahead of you in the right hand lane on a street and have their turn signal on but take SO FUCKING LONG to make a right turn that you have to slow down. like...they were far enough ahead that they could have easily turned before you got up to them but nooooooooooo.

also, when you're in the middle lane behind a car, and they pull into the right hand lane to make a right turn but their ass is still in the middle lane and take so long to get into the right lane that you have to slow down.

basically anything that impedes the flow of traffic, pretty much.

I've never had a problem with Amazon, and I use it all the time. DHL on the other hand, I did have problems with them.

I use Amazon often; my biggest complaint is that the "2-day" shipping does not seem to result in faster shipping time. They are pretty slow, compared with other online retailers. The redeeming quality is that you can find almost anything there.

USPS can cause issues -- the employees don't seem to be able to find the door! Many time we are sitting in the living room, with no loud tv or stereo, and there is no knock on the door, but we get a slip of paper in the mailbox saying delivery attempt. Then, we have to decipher what the required action is. It's a guessing game.
