That one single little annoyance.....

    You know how it is - one small and seemingly unimportant thing can throw off your whole day and often bug more you more than a big problem.

    Today I went to the fridge to get milk for my cereal & coffee (badly needed coz I didn't sleep much last night). I opened the door and realized that I had forgotten to buy milk.

    What's a tiny annoyance that you hate?

      opening the fridge in the morning and finding no beer to pour on my cereal and no wine for my coffee

        I remember in my drinking days I actually did have wine instead of milk in my cereal one day. Was I sick or what. tongue

    Losing an email that I know I filed in a 'safe' place. I hate losing things and always manage to find it when I don't need it anymore!

    When people email us through their HubPages accounts, but have incorrectly entered their email addresses when they registered, so we have no way to get back to them.

      Both complaints involve emails so far.... too much time online? lol

      That would be annoying Maddie - I've seen some sites that specifically have a message such as "Please double check your email address since we have many emails we cannot answer due to incorrect addresses."

        I readily admit it.  Hazards of having a job that involves being online all day.

      But that's so simple to fix - most sites today require that you reply to an email sent to your stated address before you can join.

        He is right. smile

        Plus, most sites make you type it in twice; so as to catch typos right at the start (I don't recollect if HP already does that or not).

    People who wear dark glasses when they are talking to you. You can't see their eyes and all you see is your own reflection. I get very distracted and start checking out my background and trying to figure out if the clothes I'm wearing makes me look fat or not. lol All I hear is... Blah Blah Blah...

      Inside or outside? I hate people wearing sunnies inside - I think it's rude. Unless it's bright and sunny (or you're blind), take 'em off!!!!

        Shoot.  I've been wearing sunglasses inside lately, but only because I've had this terrible headache for 6+ months that makes me light-sensitive.  I only do it on especially bad days, or under fluorescents.  But you'd probably think I'm completely obnoxious if you didn't know that.

          Flourescents are a common problem for some people - Your employers part of your contract makes it encumbent upon them to provide a suitable workspace - so get them changed or turned off or shielded -    This comes from my short months working in a government office where this kind of issue was a much higher priority than actually working big_smile

        It doesn't matter - I just can't concentrate and I feel I'm practicing a monologue in front of a mirror!

      That's funny. You can turn it around on them and ignore what they say until they take their glasses off. Try cleaning your teeth in the reflection. That'll freak 'em out.

    Oooh, I've got another one (non-internet related, now that WryLit made me feel bad for spending so much time online tongue).  I hate when people on the subway or the bus sit in the outside seat and don't move when things start to get crowded...  and then if you ask them if you can sit down, they 1) give you a dirty look, and 2) make you squeeze your big butt by them, as opposed to either scooting in or getting up to let you past.

        LoL peas?

        And Maddie, don't feel bad - I probably spend between 6-12 hours a day on the 'net when not at work. In between other stuff but... I have to check my emails, my adsense, my amazon, my comments, my facebook, my other email..... a whole list of things, multiple times a day! big_smile

        Luckily I don't have to take public transport. I'd probably kill someone.

      Maddie, I doubt your butt is big.  I hope your headache goes away.  Don't know that I could take six months worth.

      I hate when I get in the car to go to work and have to go back inside cause I forgot something.  Usually I am running late at the time.

    or half and half for the coffee.
    soy milk just doesn't taste right in coffee.

    as far as the dark sunglasses, if I'm outside, I'm not taking them off to talk to you, sorry, it bothers my eyes down here in sunny FL. cool

      I'm in FL too... Miami... but I guess I can talk to you wearing your glasses, as long as you dont mind the fact I'm too distracted to actually listen to a word you're saying... hahaha... I am so A.D.D.

        I know what you mean, it can be distracting, but you know how bright it is here.

        I think it's more annoying to squint while I'm talking. another Florida girl, you know how bright it is here almost every day of the year. cool

        hey, I used to live in Miami my first year of marriage. it was way too crowded, then we relocated the following year for work.  but it's fun to visit.

    I don't have one small annoyance that ruins any day.  My days are more fraught with zillions of minor annoyances that add up and ruin one minute at a time (at least if I leave the house, that is).  Of course, I'm not above re-hashing those little annoyances over and over again to other people, as my way of making sure  ruin yet more minutes of my own and of other people. Irritable people of a feather stick together.   mad

    Coffee........



    It is always coffee


    The universe trembles when there is no coffee in my house.

      klarawieckposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Funny thing about coffee is that it helps me wake up but only up to a certain point. My students know not to tell me anything of relevance or ask me questions until past 9:30am. That's about the time I'm awake. They come up to me, take a look at me and say: "Ok, I will come back to talk to you later!" hahahaha... I'm not making this up. This is true!

    My annoyance.......living with someone that is addicted to sooooo many things that they MUST have or their life is in turmoil.  There is nothing that we could be out of, other than toilet paper, that would ruin my day.

      In Cuba we found out that there are many rewards to using the newspaper as substitute for toilet paper.
      1. Nobody can tell you your as$ is too pale.(ink smudges)
      2. You recycle! You read the paper while sitting down, when you finish the page it is given a second life.
      3. You'll become a Smart As$!!!

    I hate when I am working on a project, of any kind, and the phone wont stop ringing.  In fact I am guilty of throwing it out of the front door.  Then, everyone came and rang the doorbell.  Can't win.
