    Post your petty, insignificant complaints here.

    I don't know if this affects more people than just me, but lately, Windows 7 has had a bug where if you put the computer on standby, and make it active again later, the clock in the right corner will disappear. The only cure is a restart, which I often don't want to do. But I also hate having to turn around and look across the room to know what time it is!

    [For reference, we're talking about this kind of first world problem.]

    The Pages Manager app for iOS doesn't show when people shared your stuff. It's so irritating.

    Oh, and I want to play Titanfall on Xbox One, but I've only got a PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360. I guesss I could play it on 360, but the graphic downgrade is just too much.

    My keyboard's "U" key is broken. So in order to use it, I got to copy it, then paste it into what I was going to say. And believe me, it's not fun. Especially when I forget to do it, and when I hit the paste key, I get an overtly long link pasted on I intended for previously before.

    The program guide on my cable box updated and now I have to type in something if I want to search for it. It can't search when you click on it. What am I, a freaking commie who has time to look up things?

    I am house sitting for my grandma's friend and she doesn't have cable. I am trying to watch Cosmos on Fox but some for reason the big TV in the den doesn't get the channel so I have to watch it on the tiny TV in the kitchen. Also the reception is really choppy.

    I bought too much stuff so now my luggage is going to be overweight. And if that weren't enough, I only get one free checked bag. I have two, darn it.

    Today for lunch, I ordered two Double Cheeseburgers at McDonald's and they gave me two McDoubles instead.

    I ate a giant steak and my stomach is a little upset.

    My mom cooked too much food, and there's barely enough room in my stainless steel fridge to store it all.

    Lately, every time that I go to one specific site with Google Chrome, I get the "Page has become unresponsive" message. I've tried clearing my browser history, removing extensions, even uninstalling Chrome, then re-installing it. So far, nothing I've tried has worked, and the page won't load unless I a) switch to a different browser, or b) close Chrome, open the "all programs" tab on the Start menu, go to Google Chrome from there and revisit the page. What do I look like? Someone who's not lazy?

    My laptop freezes up every 10 minutes or so. It is pretty annoying, even though I have two others in the apartment.

    At work, I'm forced to use Internet Explorer to browse the web. It won't let me install any other browsers.

    I have to use the bathroom but it's too comfy and warm to leave the bed.

    I can't use the URL I want to use for my blog because it's already being used by someone else, who hasn't updated their blog in over a year. I came up with kind of a nonsensical substitute URL in the meantime, but recently I've been wanting to change that too, and all of the URLs I like are already taken.

    Yeah, that happened to me too. Some domain squatter took the .com and twitter versions of my username. Jerk.

    The Hub has recently placed Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs to early weekday mornings and I can't watch them because I have school during that time.

    Some dork in Canada has the .com version of my real name. He doesn't even use it, it just points to his real estate site.

    So I really, really, REALLY want Batman: Arkham Knight. However, I realized that it is only on the 8th generation consoles, and I have neither XBone or a PS4, I'm too poor to buy a console, my mom definitely won't buy another one, especially since when it comes out I'll be looking at colleges, so having it for less than two years will be a waste, I'm more interested in Wii U, which won't have Arkham Knight, and if it does will be a poorer version of it overall due to little third-party support, and I won't buy a console just to have one game (though if there's more coming for either that I'm interested in, I'll maybe give one a look-see.)

    Amazon now lists the street date for the Green Lantern Animated Series Blu-Ray I preordered from them as May 15. .......Can't I buy it directly from WB's store right NOW? Why are they behind like this?
