Petty irritants in life that get you way more furious than is justified?

From @Nigelbro 's post.

For me, there are many, but one thing I fucking HATE is watching ads during movies or PPVs. Motherfuckers, when I go to the movies I have paid for my ticket. Don't fucking tell me the movie starts at 7:30,and then give me half an hour of 3 stupid ads then a trailer then 3 more stupid ads then another trailer.

It's even worse with PPVs. Spend $50 on a fight card, then halfway through you have to sit and watch a fucking trailer for some stupid movie that you have absolutely zero interest in. Fuuuuuck, that annoys me.

I also get very upset when I walk into a supermarket and see a sign saying "Strawberry Punnet's $3 each." Makes me assume that the entire store is operated by total morons.

What are some tiny, trivial things that piss you off to an extent that is not really justified?

When a laptop takes a wild amount of time to boot up.
I hate it when I click on a YouTube video, but then at the last second I notice that the sidebar has a random vid that looks interesting. So I click "back" to try to retrieve it, but the browser goes back to the previous page and the YouTube algorithm gives me an entirely new sidebar. :mad

Private number plates on cars.

Why would you stick your name or your initials on the front of your car?

If you bought a new t-shirt you wouldn't put your name all over it, would you?

People who talk to me when I’m eating.
I know most social occasions involve a meal and sometimes a meal is a social event in itself, I totally get it.
But it’s a petty, irritating thing that shits me to tears. I just want to stick the food in my head for 5 minutes and then we can party after that.

I’d be afraid of someone keying my car or smashing my window. You’d only have to piss one person off on top of the people who already think you are a cunt.
I never understand cunts who put football shirts, stickers whatever in their cars. You only need to stick a Manchester City shirt in your car...and then a few pissed up United cunts one Saturday night will just stick a brick through your windscreen.

People who walk really slowly in supermarkets, people who take so long to set off from the lights that you get stuck on a red light.

Single mums who list "Full time mummy" as their occupation.

When a page loads on your phone and you click a link and it loads a bit extra and nudges the page up a bit so you click the wrong link.

People who use their mobile on speakerphone in public.

People who go on about how tough they are.

Rich people like Bono and Bob Geldof who tell poor people to donate money from their ivory tower.

Attention seeking whores on Facebook.

Phone zombies. I.e. Assholes that think it's OK to walk extremely slowly from side to side on a pedestrian high street doing shit on their phone.

If you want to do stuff on your phone either sit down or get out of way of ppl who are walking to get somewhere

I remember Bob Geldof once mentioning how much more important the Boomtown Rats were than The Clash. Fuck me.

This shits me too. Even worse when they call themselves "CEO at Mummy's House", though.

Oh man, I am CONSTANTLY changing the colour scheme here because I get to the end of a page/thread, click the "Lounge" link at the bottom of the page, and it skips down a cm or so, enters the colour scheme dropdown, and changes the colour scheme.
