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

Packs of bacon/ham/etc with plastic packaging. They have a thinner film lid with a convenient corner flap allowing you to grasp to pull the film away from the rest of the packaging. AND YET, 0 per fucking cent of the time does this work, and you just rip the corner tab off and still have to reach for the knife you knew all along you'd need but really hoped this one might be the turning point.
By extension, devices that have one fairly straightforward purpose but are shit at it. Take the electric hand dryer. All it needs to do is heat air and blow it, like any hair dryer can do. AND YET, the majority can one manage one of these simple tasks. You want me to blow cold air on your hands? No problem! You want warm air? No problem, I'll waft some your way. You want that warm air blown with some feeling? Naaah mate. Not happening.

Lastly. Microsoft products currently ask if you want to save your work before closing. Fair enough, but an automated message is still too fucking lazy to put the words "Do you" in front of "want to save your work before closing?"
Tossers.

People who use the line "I'm not being funny but..." Advance warning they are being funny.

Also "no disrespect" just before disrespecting somebody.
Absolutely correct.

"I'm sorry but..."

Why are you apologising? If you're clear in your conviction about what you're going to say there's no need to apologise for what you're going to say.

People who kiss you on the cheek(s) when they meet you. Fuck that shit. Whether you're male or female a handshake will do. If not then a "pleased to meet you" will suffice.

Sounds like you have an issue around people touching you with orifices that secrete bodily fluids. If it's part of my culture to push my swollen mushroom tip into the side of your face when I meet you, you better accommodate me goddammit!

When cunts take shopping trolleys onto escalators and the wheel likes kick in and lock it in place. But the fuck wit pushing the trolley pushed the trolley into the centre of the escalator and now that the locks are activated you can’t get past them.

So you’re stuck waiting on the slow escalator when you just want to walk past

When you're talking about football and people go on about assists.

"Assists"

They were called crosses when I were a kid.
