Trivially That Things You Annoy

I can't think of any fun or clever puns for a title but I'm sure a mod will sort that out

Link to the old whingefest:
https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...28798&page=673

Rules here courtesy of Boom Bap that I can't quote for some reason

Welcome to the newnew Trivial Annoyance thread. Breathe in that new new thread smell, embrace it and then let fly with your TA's (Trivial Annoyances)

But before you do, there are some rules. These are the rules that will be strictly enforced. If they are broken they will be punished in a way that will trivially annoy you. It may be a ban of random length, it may be a public flogging, it may be a thread ban, you may need to serve an embarrassing punishment before you are allowed to return.

- This is not a chat thread, so no jumping into conversation off the back of someone's TA.
- By all means agree with someone's TA, but show how it annoys you as well.
- Each post must contain a trivial annoyance.
- Each post must contain a trivial annoyance.
- Each post must contain a trivial annoyance.
- Did I mention that each post must contain a trivial annoyance.
- If you were banned from a previous Trivial Things That Annoy You thread, you're also banned from this thread.

Mod- You all better do what Shpud says.

Intros on YouTube videos. I know what video I'm watching, I'm subscribed to the bloody thing.

And unskippable ads. Especially the Wish one. Drives me mad.

TA I have a sore foot. I'm taking tablets to avoid just that so it's a disappointment when a flare happens right after taking the weekly dose (arthritis).

Think my phone is on the way out. The annoying thing is that if I buy one over here, I'll have to change my number, and then probably pay a good lot to have it unlocked when I go home. And putting up with it is annoying me, so I don't know what to do

I order my phones online (Amazon or another site that I forgot the name of), they come unlocked and I just put my SIM in, off I go. I don't do contracts anymore so I sort out my phones myself.

TA: for some reason there are crumbs in bed??? Nobody ever eats here!

Buy a cheapy from Argos or an unlocked one from the cash for gold type shops

You can probably find an unlocked one even in shops, it's worth asking - in some countries phones mustn't be locked (unless for exceptional reasons).

(and I've just realised that by the time I'd written this you got three or four other replies already).
