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
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?
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."
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.
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
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.
no, just hungry. some people can't take that stuff they cram down babies mouths. Me being one of them. Ach!
Oooh, I've got another one (non-internet related, now that WryLit made me feel bad for spending so much time online ). 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.
Women don't fart peas, ralwus. We fart pearls.
You fart them, i,ll thread them and sell them.
Hey Maddie-you are so right about the pearls...what was the other one? Women don't sweat, we glow!
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!
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.
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.
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 am super annoyed that I am only allowed one small annoyance and I just used it up!
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.
those girls who lay their head to one side, like their neck is broken when they talk . . .
It is always coffee
The universe trembles when there is no coffee in my house.
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$!!!
AND you get to wipe your butt with almost every politician !
Unfortunately, the small town I live in only publishes "news" once a week. LOL Not sure I can hold it that long.
This is wonderful *news* as such as I believe most of the news is usually about sex, scandals, murder, mayhem, ya know the usual weekly shenanigans and who wants to hear about that cr*p week in week out
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.

Today, to help people more easily contact an author, we added a link to email the author that respects the author's setting in their preferences. Hopefully, this will lead to folks getting a few good emails from time to time.

Do you think writing email has strengthened or weakened people’s writing skills?
by Alex Jackson 14 months ago
Hi all,Thanks in advance for any help.I submitted my first piece yesterday. It was rejected with feedback that was very broad - either not up to standard or spammy. I thought it might be because I had included an Amazon capsule so I removed that, but left the writing as it was and resubmitted the...
