People who spell my name wrong in an email even though it's right there in the email address.  It starts them off on the wrong foot...

MikeAqua: Amazon recommending e-books to me that I have already purchased from them, using the Amazon account associated with the email they sent the recommendation to.

 

I've bought Blu-rays from Amazon and had it tell me that I "might like" the same movie on DVD too. Um, no.

The same real-estate agent telling me that "it's always the vendor pays the commission" (while I was the buyer) and then telling me only days later "it's always the buyer pays the commission" when I was the vendor of a different property.

This week it's a toss-up between:

 

 

 

1. News articles that say "We have reached out to (insert organisation/celeb/company here) for comment, but have not heard back at this stage" 

 

Just say you tried to call them, but they didn't want to talk

 

2. Those damn pop-ups on web pages (listen up all you web designers!) that want you to a: sign up to their data base/get 1st in line for all the specials, b: answer a survey (That's YOU aunty Herald), or c: tell you about the next breaking story about a kitten that's stuck in a drainpipe.... in Australia

 

I'm in New Zild and we have real cats here, your caught kitty is not news

Every time that Stuff, Herald, etc have a news article about a car crash (as an example) and display a generic picture of a police car, ambulance or fire truck. These stock images add nothing to the articles at all.
