#2 people that send you an email and then call to discuss what they just sent via email

 

Worse - people who call and leave a voicemail that only says, "give me a call."  You really couldn't give me a heads up as to the topic, or email/text me?

My boss does this via text. "Call me when you get a minute."  Those are always fun to get.

It could be worse: "call me when you get a chance, it's about the new budgets cuts".

That moment where an ad loads at top of the page right as you're about to click on a link.  The whole page shifts down slightly and you wind up clicking something completely different.  I'm want to read about the Sabres hiring Botterill, not a season recap for the Oilers.

I'm convinced they do that to piss me off! It could be to get clicks, but I think it's personal.

Yeah I always hated Godfrey of Bouillon, Duke of Lower Lorraine, although Roger de Beaumont, 2nd Earl of Warwick was ok.

When a crackhead is smoking crack under a major overpass in Atlanta and burns it down.
At least it's fixed now but that traffic sucked for awhile.

Wasting taxpayer money on "bike lanes", when people just use them as a way to pass your car on the right.

 

I do not criticize cyclists from riding on the sidewalk in the direction of traffic, even WITH a bike lane, only for this reason.

Went to the OTB today for the first time in a long time, usually just bet online at Twinspires.

Having said that, the wise guy Jersey dude who walks around all day saying " you can beat this chalk" , chalk gets beat, " he says " I told you" emphatically, but still has no freaking winning tickets.

I get tired of adults fighting at graduation ceremonies, especially at those held in churches. It's gross.

That 15-20 minute wait between when a show starts and the DVR has enough buffered so you can fast forward thru the commercials

If you "loose" your dog, you let him off his leash.  If you "lose" your dog, he's gone AWOL.

 

I'm not sure what you've done if you "loose" a game but if "lose" a game, you get beat.
