Toasters that don't get the bread hot enough to melt the butter. Which reminds me... refrigerators without a butter compartment.

Butter conditioner? I don't understand it. Why have a compartment in a fridge that is kept from being cold? Why not just store the opened stick of butter in a container in a cupboard?

Because I don't heat the house to 20°C. I prefer a comfortable temperature rather than a sauna.

IMO 20 degrees is at the lower end of comfort.

Agreed. If the butter is too hard then the house must be too cold.

Companies whose only means of contact is via a web form, where after filling all the details in, they don't email a copy of what you wrote back to you.

It's so they can ignore you - or deny you sent anything!

Or ones that to the inexcusable fault of losing what you typed in all the fields because they dont like what was in one of the fields - usually its a + in the phone numner. GTFO with not taking phone numbers in proper formats, I have no idea what your dialing prefixes are to put those in there.

Or ISPs who are TDR members, who ignore the complaint and follow ups. So you have to take it to the TDR, where you have to wait 6 weeks, which results in a significant delay.

Doing the simplest job imagineable, and it doesn't work. Replaced batteries in 2 of the 4 smoke alarms, one was low battery beeping. Now they both beep. Fixed it, but even so. (Charge remaining in componentry ,so removed battery and pressed Test to discharge)
