BG: My ILs live with us.I can't stand the way MIL opens a box of cereal. Instead of taking the inner pouch and pulling it open (to make a funnel to pour your cereal into a bowl without spilling it everywhere) she cuts a corner off. So when you pour your cereal, there is always a good bit left that falls down into the box. And I know these aren't impossible-to-open-packages, everyone else manages to open them without cutting it. And if she's having issues, for the love of Pete, TELL someone so they can help!
People who are late...which what I am waiting for right now...13 minutes and counting.
Work software. It is never easy to use, but what is throwing me at the moment is my remote log-in process. In order to work from home, I have to get access to the secure intranet. This involves a process kind of like dial-up, where I log in and then it runs an application that connects me.Last year it was a breeze, I never had to think about it. Then I got upgraded to Windows 7 before they upgraded that in house software. Fortunately, through trial and error I figured out a workaround. Well, just last week that software was fixed... To the point where now the process is random at best, and deliberately sadistic at worst. It keeps trying to install new (legit) software, except it is already installed. Then I'll get a message saying after it's installed, click here to continue. Which then brings up the "do you want to install this software?" box. If/when I break that loop, I get a message that the software has an error, do i want to run it anyway? and there's a 50/50 shot that whatever button I click (run or cancel), regardless of its label, will make it work vs. have the program hang.I feel like it's a "rat in a maze" test, where they keep changing the path to success. "oh, she clicked that option last time and it worked, this time it won't work and/or will hang the computer. Next time maybe it will work and maybe it won't, muah ha ha ha!". Seriously, the same strategy will not work two days in a row.

I know this has been mentioned before but not for several years.It's something I call the interrogatory declarative. We all know it.'Hi? My name is Jane Smith? I'm here to see Mr. Jones?'And it doesn't stop. Every sentence ends with a rising tone. A similar thing involves the person who over-greets. At work I hated getting phone calls from people who began the conversation with, 'Hello. Good day. Good Afternoon. My name is ...'For some reason, the first tends to be more prevalent among women and the second among men.
Or you prepare something not completely new but a different version (beef vindaloo vs chicken vindaloo) and have the flavor be off by a hair. And you don't know which hair.
This doesn't happen often, but it ticks me off. When you buy something that still has two weeks to go before it's the sell-by date, you expect said food item to be fresh. I bought half-and-half today that supposedly doesn't expire until the 20th, and it's sour. I can't take it back because I tossed the receipt. Ah well...
People who use the word "flu" to describe any illness. I just got back from the ER, being rehydrated after a severe bout of gastroenteritis. The nurse kept talking about me having the flu. Um, no, the flu is a viral respiratory illness; what I have is definitely not that!
