Oh, good one! On item 4,computers everywhere malfunction. The Qantas 702,being one of the worst malfunctions to date, as it skydived to the ground.

On no. 6, these poor guys are paid minimum wage to "have" to please us. Sad really.

On item 8.Yes,I go for the thick Toilet paper, since have had a few mishaps with thin paper.
I certainly agree with the rest and I'm Aussie too.
Sometimes you need a computer degree to delete or unsubscribe in the emails. I agree with that so far.
I hope u feel better for getting all this irritation off your mind!!

I enjoyed and laughed a lot. I had to take breaks for my stomach that started to hurt! I love all the things you got annoyed with and I can commiserate with most if not all! Except I'm in the US. So I don't update any status with Bugger - LOL - I love that you have three kitties! I think stubbing or breaking anything not sober is probably the best way to do it! Cheers, Fonda

    Hey thanks Lynda! I'm honoured you found this funny and entertaining enough to rate it a six! I'm very excited to get this review from you. Have a wonderful day! PS: I know it was a bit long lol!

Thank you for the best laugh I've had in a long time. You are the Australian equivalent of Dave Barry, the American humorist whose work I love. I can fully relate to every one of the things you rail about, from the self-serve lines I'll never use (since every time I did, it took longer to get someone to come over and get it to function correctly than it would have taken me to stand on a line with a cashier) to auto-correct. If I'd wanted to risk offending some people by typing out the word God, I'd have done so, and not used OMG, of which Mr. Auto-correct apparently doesn't approve. I also had a ginger named Tigger (a.k.a. Tiggie or Tig) and a Maine Coon named Rocky (a.k.a. Cujo, for his unprovoked nighttime attacks).

If there's one thing that particularly annoys me, it's writing that's so funny it makes me sit at my desk and laugh out loud - while anyone within hearing range looks at me very strangely. So, for that reason, add this story to the list of things that annoy me, and good luck in the contest. I can't imagine your not doing well.

    Your review made me smile, even without the generous six star rating! There are SO MANY things that annoy me, this rather long missive only includes a few lol! I must be a very annoyed, irritated person, but even so, I'm very happy you enjoyed this enough to rate it a six, and to laugh out loud at it. Thanks so much for making my day! Sorry for late response; I've had patchy internet lately...another thing that annoys the crap out of me hahaha

    Now you have fodder for another story. I love the type of humor that's based on everyday occurrences that we all encounter and, therefore, can all relate to. You're putting into words what the rest of us have expressed through snarls, moans and curses. You're speaking for the masses and, as one member of said mass, I'm grateful for that. :-)

    As I'm grateful for your words, thoughts and encouragement! Ive been "marked down" by a couple due to the length of this, but don't want to shorten it. In fact I think I'll keep this going as a chapter sort of thing, because, like you, I also enjoy observational humour. Have you ever heard of Carl Baron? Possibly not, but he's an Aussie observational humourist who performs live shows. He's hysterical!! Anyways, thanks again for making me feel like I achieved something great: putting a smile on someone else's dial lol!

    I'm sorry someone marked you down for length. It's not as thought there were a length requirement on the prompt. I don't believe there was a humor requirement either, so I'm personally very glad you made your own choices. If you did continue this "as a chapter sort of thing," I'd definitely read it.

    I'm not familiar with Carl Baron, but I'll certainly keep an eye out for him now. Thanks for cluing me in.

That gave me a good laugh for the day! most of what you said was right on! And autoccheck thingy drives me totally wild. I keep looking for the off button to no avail. I secretly want to pull his tongue out, if he has one. Yeh, that could make me feel better for about 10 seconds! I enjoyed your post immensely!

It was very long, and some of your numbered annoyances went on and on. I got to number 15 before I decided to scan and look to see how many more there were. All the way TJ 22!! You have a lot of things that annoy you! Lol! I can identify with some of these, especially #4. I hate self checkout because of this! The writing was good, just long. I guess my suggestion would be not to make a list, unless those were the rules, but instead to focus more on a story about something and add some of these annoyances into the story. Keep writing! I hope you feel better now that you got those 22 things that annoy you out. Write on!

    Thanks for your review. Could you point out what was wrong with this, considering you've rated it a four? That usually means something needs correction or tweaking 😄

I enjoyed your interminable litany of peeves very much, especially the supermarket ones and the driving ones and the toilet paper and the toe-stubbing - did it yesterday, not broken luckily (I wasn't drunk). I could go on but it would peeve me. Very well written and entertaining.
