The companies house webcheck website closing down every night after midnight, which I can only assume is due to union pressure on working hours...

Brown bread which costs more than white bread, despite it requiring both less grain per loaf and less processing...

Adverts which are louder than the TV programme...

Clients that are keen to get started with work, provide all the materials and images etc, set an ambitious deadline, agree the price.. then hmm and hah when it comes to actually making any payment!

Clients who, when the work has been done, say "actually could you add this and this and this and this and this" but want it as part of the original agreement.

Banks shutting at 5pm and weekends. Wouldn't there busiest times be when people have finished work?

Checks and online bank transfers taking too long to clear.

Post offices and couriers not delivering or collecting ALL weekend

Windows updates nagging me to restart my machine when I'm in the middle of a big project.

People who don't read F.A.Q's before emailing me.

Junk Mail - It's getting really out of hand recently!

Lousy weather at weekends. You look out the window all week at lovely sunshine to then get a weekend full of rain/sleet/snow.

That's it for now :)

Even worse: Some stupids spamming the world with my e-mail address as sender address.

The only benefit of receiving thousands of error-messages per hour is the ability to say 'user unknown' and 'temporarily not available' in countless languages.

Reading lists of things that Bug other people.

    VVV - I thought was odd too when I first came across the site.

    Tenants of mine who get angry at me for sending them letters about the non payment of their rent.

    But it aint my fault, I had to have the Gucci handbag/buy the grandaughter a horse/have an expensive holiday.

    Saying sorry to someone and they grunt at you or worse, ignore you...
