Hey guys.

Another bit of fun thread.

What's something small that really annoys you?

I don't mean small as in size, I mean something which may not annoy somebody else, but does annoy you.

Lately I have sold a couple of things on Trade Me, the buyers haven't responded to my E-Mails. This is something we all got annoyed at I know, but why the #%$# do people buy something and then not go through with the deal??


Your turn.....

Westpac's online banking. When trying to make a payment, it seems to be 50/50 as to whether it'll let me enter cents, or just dollars. It also often tells me that the (pre-filled) payment date is invalid, then accepts it if I try a second time.


These issues are relatively new but have still been occurring off and on for a few months now; you'd think that this sort of thing would be fixed fairly quickly.


Edit: For the absence of doubt, this is occurring on two different PCs with different Internet connections, different operating systems and different browsers.

The "hoops" that Companies put you through to claim a Cashback / Product Credit!


I know why they do it:


Many would give up or fail to do it correctly, so they save money, whereas with a discount of the product they wouldn't!

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. 😋
