what little,tiny,barley noticable things annoy you in life?heres two things for me:
Slow moving ceiling fans-why not just turn them off?their not moving air at all
and theres the fact that the black rubber thing you hold onto on escalators always moves just SLIGHTLY faster that the escalator.id immagine in this day and age someone would have found out how to solve that problem.
and whats with pink ties?what are you trying to do wearing a pink tie?pimp it up?

To add to the AWOL sock... I always have like 2 or 4 socks that don't match anything else in the laundry pile... If I ever catch the little gnome that is stealing them I am gonna shove that red pointy hat where the sun doesn't shine.
Cell phones in classes.. I wish I could be so important I couldn't be out of contact with ma peeps for 50 minutes.
Why the 20oz sodas cost $1.00 in the vending machines at school but if you walk 20 feet and buy them at the food line they are $1.40... fascinating.

The little day-to-day idiocies annoy me a wee bit.
When I'm just about ready to head to the supermarket or basically anywhere, I realise that I left my wallet upstairs. Great. Now I have to walk up the stairs just because my mind went inactive for that damned half second when it was supposed to remember "Take the wallet, take the wallet!"
...that mobile phone batteries are always empty when you really need them.
...that mouse balls tend to collect all the dirt from the mouse pad and that it clogs up the mouse. And that I don't have the money for a Logitech diNovo.
...that the remote control of my stereo needs so much "persuasion" to work properly.
...that my nose doesn't work quite right anymore. Chlorine? Well, why should I smell it?
...when I'm putting books in a shelf and they al topple over.
...when I forget to hit the a/c "circulate" button in the car while I'm getting close to something smelly.
...when I can't find the right music for the moment.
...when I'm all slack and slow because it's 30°C and 80+%.
...when I get a headache away from home and don't have a pill in my wallet because I forgot to replace it after the last time I took it.
...when the radio plays "Söhne Mannheims" right after some good music.
...that some people think everyone is attacking them and wanting their worst.
...that some people consider everyone who doesn't find their jokes funny a spoilsport or an idiot.
...when people bitch for the sake of bitching.
...that so many people think their wealth is the thing the world should turn around.
...that so many people think work is a form of punishment and then wonder why others get the jobs they were fired from.
...when ignorant people go on power trips.
...when ignorant people bash those who know their stuff because the truth doesn't fit their agenda (recent example: Annie Jacobsen's Womens Wall Street whining episode)
Walk together, talk together all ye peoples of the earth. Then, and only then, shall ye have peace.

Well, for me, the first one that comes to mind is when I'm walking down a sidewalk and there's three people or more walking towards me and they don't have the normal common respect of making room for me to pass by. They'd rather ignor me and have me go around them and walk across the grass.
I don't think so .......... It's simply rude.
So, I just march on right through the middle of them. It usually wakes them up pretty fast! I'm a big guy.
Regarding socks ............. that's one of life's drags!
