    I've had my current laptop for over a year now and sometimes when I'm typing the T key comes a little bit loose and I have to tap it back down.

    We changed cable providers last year, and I miss the boxes we used to have that fix it so that it doesn't automatically change the channel when you accidentally hit a button on your remote.

    I joined Spotify recently and I'm not liking their smartphone app. It won't let me play tracks that aren't already in my playlists.

    When something blocks text: happens with subtitles on the news and last Thursday while I was watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire PT on RTP 1, half of the Fastest Finger First question was blocked by an ad for participating in the game show.

    On CN during advert breaks, the CN logo often blocks the small print at the bottom of the screen, you can barely see the text though, I think it would be against the law to use a solid CN logo during ad breaks for this reason.

    For DirecTV viewers, the Hub's logo on the info screen has been removed and replaced with the default wording that just says "HUB". It's been like this for a couple of weeks now. I wouldn't mind it so much, except that we didn't the actual Hub logo until a year after the channel was launched.

    When you do a favour for someone and they don't have the decency to say thank you.

    When you wait a long time for a doctor's check-up; I've lately been sick so my mom made an appointment at 19:00, but I only entered the room at around 19:50 or so.

    I got a parking citation at school - well, where I am supposed to park if I want to be close to the gym and cafeteria, huh? Stupid parking requirements.

    Letting people stopped at a stop sign go before I cross the street and they can't even just wave to me to signal, "Thank You."

    I hear a song and I try to Shazam it, but my phone is too slow and by the time I get it working the song ends.

    Any time an article on TV by the Numbers appears, it takes forever for it to actually appear on the home page on my computer. So when the Wednesday ratings are now available, the front page of the site still shows the Tuesday final ratings. With that, I have to go to the Renew/Cancel thread, and click on the link for any Wednesday show's ratings to get to the article. Real fun.

    It depends on your Internet's speed.

    When you realize that the elevators are not working. I got stuck in the elevator twice: when I was 4 and when I was 7 (2002 and 2005, respectively).

    When I was younger I had a fear of lifts/elevators, I blame that Tower of Terror preview on Disney Consumer Arcade on the Disney Channel.

    I only knew about that "horrible" movie on Shameful Sequels last year.
