Something small that bothers me is web designers that rely on things like mouseover to get things to appear that you have to click on. Which dont appear with you touch the screen, but since web designers are all mac users think that touch events only ever happen on the iphone/ipad version of the site so dont allow for them on the desktop one. So you touch the heading that is supposed to open up a menu if they bothered to get touch events but since they dont, it navigates to the page that you are on and doesnt show the options that you need to choose from.

Salted Caramel that has no real discernible taste of salt. More salt is required in most products I taste, and I am not normally a person who wants a lot of salt!

Cornflakes that don't taste salty but have almost 1g/100g sodium. That's more than most packets of chips I have!

Digital clocks, watches, cordless phones, DVR recorders, etc. It's 2018 now and none of these devices keep particularly accurate time.

Neither does the pendulum clock I inherited from my grandmother but it makes a very soothing ticking sound.

They do if they're connected to the internet and sync with the Teh Interweb Deity of Time.

Searching for an artist on Google Music. And getting 4 different albums that are all "greatest hits" albums. And none of the actual album releases by that artist.

And that often such devices refuse to work without the clock being set.

My old microwave would show 12:00 when plugged in, and if you used it to cook would start the clock running, so it was always showing a wrong time. New one just shows : on the screen if its not set which is much better because I have no use for a clock on the microwave since its normally showing how long my food has to go if I am in the kitchen.

 

Perhaps if it didnt lose the time because it was unplugged to clean the buttons it would be some use. But better to be showing : than a wrong time like the old one.

Documentaries in which the presenters address the viewer as if we are educationally sub normal morons.

Maybe there's a reason for that.

What really annoys me is people who get on a bus during peak time and sit in the aisle seat and block access to the window seat. Then as the bus fills they just ignore the poor sods looking for a seat. They know they are being a*holes - but just dont care. The slight variation on this seat blocking is the person that does sit in the window seat and plonks their bag on the aisle seat.

 

Douchebags each and every one of them!

Clickable news headlines (or whatever) spread over several lines where the whole test block isn't clickable, just the rows of text, so you click in the middle of it and still miss.

Documentaries, especially ones the other half watches about the latest murderer of the week, obviously designed to be shown with 10 million ad breaks which spend half the remaining time constantly repeating stuff they've already said in case you can't remember that far back (usually 5 minutes).
