Any story that includes phrases such as "The internet said" or "The internet's reaction was".

The internet is inanimate, it cannot say anything and nor can it react.

I get annoyed at people getting annoyed about someone’s annoyance they’ve posted simply because they think said annoyance isn’t annoying which is annoying because they’ve posted and stated that said thing annoys them which is the point of this thread.

Yes, the small things annoy me. 😋

Papers (and official documents) that say "Building is earthquake prone".

 

The building is prone to damage caused by earthquakes - "Building is earthquake-damage prone". 

 

The Wellington region is earthquake prone.

I can deal with the odd bang of a nail gun and sawing some wood but it's the loud German death metal coming out of the speakers that annoys me on a Saturday morning.

As they are living on site next door, I get building noise 6 days a week then loud bbq party noise with more music and sound of bottles being thrown into rubbish bins on Sunday.

And of course the owners live in a totally different part of town so know nothing.

I thought I was missing something in the meaning of it, but I'm glad that it's not just me that has an issue with it.  It's always just sounded wrong.

Yes. This. It drives me potty. Only a non native English speaker could have invented this phrase.

Neighbours across the road seem to have a whole bunch of new kids there and at least one of them is fully feral and screams with a noise that’s a cross between dog and monkey.

The other kids aren’t much better with constant screaming, swearing and crying.

Doing up a Photobook on Snapfish before realising that Snapfish thought I was in the US, and changing to NZ wipes the book. The US version was still there, but I'm not going to pay $41 US freight to get it here.

 

I had to start again.

This one's my own fault (and is a little technical).

 

I was poking around in a bug database and saw a report for "this particular paid app crashes when I do X using the latest beta of the SCSI driver". Since I have that app, and have a SCSI machine, I decided to try it myself and see whether I could replicate it. But I didn't get that far. I tried loading the beta driver from the desktop and it made the hard drive disappear. OK, fine. "I must have to load it before the desktop starts", I think to myself. So I put it into the "PreDesk" folder so that it loads before the desktop. Reboot and get "no disk found". Wonderful. Now the desktop doesn't load at all, and I can't see the hard drive from the command line. By extension I can't delete the beta driver.

 

Fortunately I did manage to fix it in the end!

When you've done a 7 hour red eye and you have to deal with the nonsense of US bound security then the airport line is enough.
