A while back I published a list of Life’s Little Infuriations, and followed that with a request that site visitors contribute their own nagging annoyances. (Check the comments on those posts to see what’s irritating others.)
Now, here are some of my latest infuriations. Enjoy the flowers, which have nothing to do with this post, except that they help to keep me more or less sane.
– Jackets without pockets. Where to put gloves? A tissue?
– Ice cold restaurant salads. Ice cold, brick hard restaurant butter.
– Food stores (supermarket, take out joints, etc.) charging the same or higher price for a smaller amount of food.
– Websites with useful or entertaining information, but no Share buttons.
– Websites that require your email address before they show you anything at all. My experience has been with mostly, but not only, home decorating sites. How on earth do you know if those sites will offer anything of interest to you?
– Left turning motorists who don’t use their signals, so you’re stuck behind them when you could have gone about your business in the right lane.
– Tiny score boxes on televised baseball games; our screens get larger, their writing smaller.
– While I’m on the subject of sports: The constant chatter by broadcasters on topics unrelated to the game being aired. Also, the intense crushes they and the sports media get on some players. The hapless players seldom live up to all the hype. (Think recent Red Sox rookies, whose last names begin with “B.”)
– Top bed sheets marked “queen size” that are patently too small. They are the same size as those made for a double bed.
