Websites that give a phone-style interface even when used on the desktop. I realise that a lot of people use phones these days, but the site should adapt instead of looking like, well, this:

 

Click to see full size

 

Especially given the content of the site, when you'd think that most serious visitors would be on a desktop.

And related: iOS apps on the iPad that have no iPad display mode so look like they're on a big phone!

Apps that only have the option of "Yes, I'm In" or "Maybe Later" (or similar) to their popups for some feature (usually paid).
I wish they had a third option for "No, not ever, don't ask again!"

I know it doesn't fit the business model, but it is particularly annoying if it happens every time the app is updated.

 This and how often some Apps ask this. This is not only applies to Apps but Windows 10 incessant nagging about 'will I recommend Edge" "do I like mail" "do I like pop ups asking these silly questions"

Have I already posted about those small trollys at bunnings, they are small and usually operated in a very annoying manner. I remember thinking about it but not sure if I mentioned it and am too lazy to search.

Yeah they’re very annoying to use too - you have to bend right down because the handle is below knee-level. And there’s no way you can get a 40l bag of garden bark in there. What are they thinking?




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Like Internet Explorer? Which gives the "Yes" and "No, and don't ask again" options to "Make this your Default Browser" question. And then asks again, again. Every. Freaking. Time.

People who say something is a 'major issue' when in reality it is a small inconvenience. Exaggerating the state of affairs doesn't magically make your issue get fixed any quicker.

It does sometimes - hence the squeaky wheel gets the oil.

The fact that in the past 7 days, I have found 6 marks in my car, not put on it by me. 

 

Honestly, I can't believe the number of people who could damage a car and not leave a single note. I now have 9 semi-significant dents, scratches, marks or other things, and not ONE of those was caused by me. Not one note was left. 

 

I suspect the combined cost of rectifying them is likely to be around 3-4K.

Yes, we find the same. Just a complete lack of respect for other people's property.

Probably been mentioned, but ..

Air NZ's new safety video. I have just had to suffer through it twice and it really is utterly awful.
Worse than the one with a puppet rat in.

People travelling who appear to have no idea how security or passport control work and just get in everyone else's way.

Same here exactly. I park next to new cars only, or park further away. Me, if someone parks too close, I'm happy to be a contortionist to protect my car and respect their car
