All of life's annoyances

Doesn't It Annoy You When...

1. ...there's a car alarm nearby that goes on for hours and the owner is nowhere to be found?

2. ...you buy an answering machine so you won't miss any calls, and then everyone hangs up when they hear the machine answer?

3. ...there's a cop car in sight and everyone thinks they have to drive 10-15 mph slower than the speed limit?

4. ...you're reading a magazine and all those annoying little subscription cards keep falling out?

5. ...you tell someone that a door is locked and they try to open it anyway, like it'll magically open for them and not you.

6. ...someone says, "well, to make a long story short" and then they go on telling it for another 15 minutes.

7. ...a friend or family member says "Yuck! This is awful!!" and then tells you to try some.

8. ...you have to inform five different sales people in the same store that you're just looking around.

9. ...you rub on hand cream and can't turn the bathroom doorknob to get out.

10. ...a waiter or waitress is not around at any time other than right after you put food in your mouth.

11. ...your tire gauge lets half the air in your tire when all you want is a pressure reading.

12. ...there's a dog in your neighborhood that barks at EVERYTHING.

13. ...the power goes out, and you discover every flashlight you have has dead batteries.

14. ...someone gets in the express lane at the supermarket and writes a check or uses a credit card.

15. ...the elevator stops at every floor and nobody gets on.

16. ...you almost ALWAYS back up your computer files but the week you don't, your hard drive crashes and you lose everything.

Most of those "little" annoyances are also on my list.  I just added one to the list yesterday - the 18-wheeler that wants in your lane when you  have nowhere to go and ruins your driver-side mirror.  Happened to me.

I could add a number of others also. Good food for thought though as your driving down the road talking on your cell phone weaving around and annoying all the drivers around you. ;-)

Yes it is annoying - just like when I get in the fast lane and the person in front of me decides to go the speed limit!
