Getting an update notification for iTunes, telling me that the program has been updated to 'focus on TV shows, movies and books'.

 

 

 

Then finding out that you STILL can't access any TV shows at all in NZ...!

This is really small...but....

 

People who don't queue properly, especially those people at the front of a queue who leave a large gap between them and the checkout/cashier.      So , today this happened to me, this one woman was at the front of the queue but she was standing so far back i didn't even realise it was a queue and I accidentally pushed in front.... no idea i did this until i got the dirty look.

Any product described as being of "European design." It's totally meaningless babble meant to imply it's somehow of higher quality.

Clothes described as "designer".

Even a boiler suit was designed by a designer...

That sort of depends on where you are queuing..

 

At something like a petrol station, where there are 2 cashiers, and quite a long line of people, I'd prefer a single queue feeding the two cashiers, rather than queuing up a a single cashier and waiting for people to sort out their orders and finances, mistyped PIN numbers, etc,





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

As do I, but that doesn't mean that you should leave a gulf between the cashier and the queue.

Finding Mainland organic butter and spreadable butter in Australian supermarkets that I've never seen in a NZ supermarket. Then realising the price is almost half what non organic butter in NZ costs... As is milk....

People that see the line but because of said "gulf" just jump behind one of the cashiers instead of behind in the queue.

 

Cashiers that see this happening and don't send the person to the back of the queue.

People who enters petrol stations to the clearly marked exit way and then proceed to the pumps stopping the car in the opposite direction from everyone else in the court - effectively blocking that pump from other people until they move out.

Another Win10 annoyance, that sometimes the mouse scroll wheel doesn't actually scroll the window. Ironicly the settings windows are the ones that don't scroll. (as I was there to check that the mouse settings were correct).

 

Thankfully it works just fine in Firefox.
