Plastic food packages that are impossible to open without ripping.
People who don't put the seat belt all the way into the slot before getting out of the car.
Christmas music before Thanksgiving.
Resonant snare buzz.
The phrase "it is what it is".
Drivers stopping within the crosswalk (or even past the stop bar at all) at a red light.
Loud cell phone ringtones.
People who don't flush the urinal.
Crunchy things in egg salad or deviled eggs.
The phrase "I know, right".
Zippers that tend to get fabric stuck in them.
Toilet paper that's too soft to successfully do its job.
Vitamins A and D not being added to low-fat milk.

At the grocery store, when the old lady in front of me in line (it's always an old lady) has a bill of $9.48, and after peeling the five and four ones off her stack, goes digging through her coin purse until she finds exactly 48 cents.

The word "trickeration" used by football announcers.

Too true. For me, it's the fact that so many new interstates such as I-22, I-2, and I-41 are completely redundant with U.S. routes.

Same, and I'll take it a step further and say that it's ridiculous to start selling Christmas items in early September before the first day of Fall even hits. Same with Halloween items being put out the last week of July, Valentine's items during the last couple weeks of December, and Easter items before Valentine's Day.

My gripe with that is that they tend to clog toilets. That's why I prefer either Angel Soft or the dollar store brands.

My mother is the same damn way (though she's only 51). It pisses me off when she does it, especially when there's a long line behind us. She hates breaking up dollar bills.

Aren't most seat belts designed to do that automatically these days?
