My wife maintains I’m a cranky old bastard at heart. Lots of “normal“ things annoy me - people who talk on phones while driving, waiting in queues, java developers…but then there are a few special ones that I’m pretty sure are not “usual“ annoyances. These things really annoy me:
- People who “categorize” their weblog posts like tech-ed sessions. What constitutes “level 200“ for you might be “level 400“ for somebody else and vice versa. Lets leave the largely meaningless numerical categorizations for Tech-Ed.
- Chewing gum. Gum should cost $50 a packet to pay for the cleaning of the mess it causes to the streets and foot-paths. It’s a filthy habit.
- People who mis-pronounce coffee names - “expresso“ and “cuppachino“….Grrrr……
I’ll be sure to add to this list as more things occur to me.
