When the drive thru puts the napkins on top of the french fries and the napkin gets greasy.

When you click "submit" and the wheel spins and spins and you assume it didn't post, so you post the same thing again only to end up with a double post.

When you fire up a DVD to watch a movie and have to sit through 34 "previews" that the DVD menus do not allow you to skip...
The Sage is occupied with the unspoken
and acts without effort.
Teaching without verbosity,
producing without possessing,
creating without regard to result,
claiming nothing,
the Sage has nothing to lose.

I spend three days figuring a quote on a fabrication project ......studying several pages of engineering drawings, sketching and planning how it is to be built (quite often, it can't be built like it is drawn......I keep an M.C. Escher drawing hanging above my desk to demonstrate why this is true), figuring material costs, freight costs and labor...... and then the engineer revises everything. I get to start all over again. GRRRRR!

When your wife says she is ready to go and you put away your guitar and wait at the door for her to finish getting ready to go . :)

...you're driving and come to a stop for various reasons; the car following comes within 5mm of your bumper, as if they love you and want to become conjoined twins. If you can't see the tires of the car in front of you while stopped, you're too close. What is this compulsion? lol

...you drive a smaller car, and at night you're blinded by SUVs, trucks, vans, etc., whose headlights are higher. (Especially by those people who don't leave space in front of them when they drive or when they stop.) The laser light in your side mirrors melts your eyeballs. And then you can no longer read music. Very sad.

I hate it when I invest 4 weeks of training for new employees, then within 2 weeks after training they violate the "zero tolerance" rules and get fired... Yeah, the prison system attracts the dumb and dumberer.

I hate it when a delivery is due between 7AM and 7PM, so you take the day off work, and the delivery takes place at 7:03PM.

I grew up with cats. I hated getting up in the morning and stepping into a pool of cold vomit. Cats vomit continuously. I miss having cats but....

When they announce that the next programme contains adult humour and as always the humour turns out to be at the level of a primary school playground. Adult humour is clearly not a talent not many modern TV comedians possess.
