*Cable TV channels that show the same movie BACK TO BACK - what a sense of deja vu THAT is!
*People who aggressively beg for money - please don't get me wrong, I'm all for helping my fellow man (or woman) who is down on their luck, but somedays, I like to walk from my office to the food court up the street WITHOUT having the same guy get right in my face with his cup asking if I can spare some change and then following me half a block wishing me a blessed day. I'd be MUCH more inclined to help if he backed off a little and didn't try to hit me up EVERY time!
*Entering information online for an order or registraion or something similar, getting through the first 6 or so pages and then on the last page, just as the process is finalizing, getting the white screen that says there was some sort of error and you have to go back and start ALL OVER!
*People who REFUSE to get off their cell phones! That used to irk me no end when I cashiered. They have walked from one end of the store to the other, talking away and can't even terminate the call long enough to check out and leave the store. There is NOTHING that could be that important that you couldn't hang up the phone.
*People who think its effective and appropriate to complain loudly while waiting in line. Somehow they mistakenly believe that they will get faster service this way (a la 'the squeaky wheel gets the grease' theory), but more often just irritate the rest of us forced to stand in line with them and cause the cashier's to "get an attitude."
