Scan telemarketers calling me from multiple ‘local’ phone numbers, offering me help with refinancing student loans (that I don’t have). I finally broke down and selected the option to speak with someone in person on the line, when they picked up and answered me I told them that I didn’t have any loans to refinance, and to quit calling me - before I could finish saying that they hung up on me. That’s all I needed to hear, as I added that number to my contact I have named ‘Spam’ that I add all of these numbers to, and I have ‘Spam’ blocked as a contact. Spam’s up to about 45 blocked phone numbers now....

I have to take calls I'm an office where I work alone. I generally have nice interactions with people who call in, but it's the angry ones who constantly ruin my day. Usually for something I have no control over...

Listening to the free tier of Slacker Radio and having to hear the State Farm ‘She shed’ ad on seemingly EVERY commercial break. I can’t turn down the volume quick enough to try and mute that abomination!!

I have always hated folks who are always late for work. As a business person myself, I have no use for someone who can’t get to work on time. One of my pet peeves.

Trying to read the comments on some YouTube videos of hot button, or hot take issues, and seeing in most the level of maturity of toddlers - both in actual spelling/punctuation as well as level of ‘critical thinking,’ that is also married with the mouths of hardened sailors. It’s like it’s one big echo chamber of idiocy.

The deluge of emails from seemingly EVERY. SINGLE. RETAILER. that I’ve done business with, letting me know about something called ‘Cyber Monday’ today, where I can save various amounts of money on purchases today...
And some sending me multiple emails today, incase the first two didn’t make the point.

Telemarking calls. Relentless. Won’t stop. Same area code and prefix and different last 4 digits. I have PrivacyStar and call Filter. Still not stopped. I answered a couple saying stop calling. Now am trying an app called RoboKiller. If works will pay for the subscription
I wish these calls could be banned. So tired of it.

MacRumors comments sections...
The Apple haters over there that only ever post negative about any and all things regarding Apple on that site is laughable. It’s like a cacophony of dumbassery...
With each negative commenter trying to outdo the previous one, to see who can post the most ‘witty’ disparaging comment that gets the most ‘likes.’ Maybe if they balanced their negative posts with an occasional positive one, I’d be more inclined to pay attention to, and take seriously, their negative ones.

Not so little: when total strangers pet my service dog in training without my permission it takes 2 to 3 years of careful training to get a good service dog, and jerks who interfere set back a dog in training, the work is hard enough already.
