Petty annoyances

    No you can't all name Reece Douglas.

    So I ordered a black Americano. No milk.

    It arrives and they've done it but left space for my milk. But I don't have any milk because I want it black. But I've paid the same price as someone who has milk and but with no milk. That's like 4p? 5p? Shocking!

    What stupid petty little things cause irritation?

    People who understand the list of coffees on the menu. Also, those who can pronounce them.

    I've come across a couple of people recently who order 'an Americano' - and then add, 'with milk'!o_O Can't quite work that one out, tbh...

    Boxes of tablets with the information leaflet round the blister pack.

    Corned beef cans.

    When the computer invites me to update and shut down. OK so I do that...but when I switch it on next morning it's only part way through updating. Why? It's had all night,

    What do you call a cup of coffee with cold milk added?

    And I would have thought that was an iced coffee. Life is hard for guttersnipes.

    On a similar vein, when you do want an Americano with milk, and they DON'T leave a space for the milk!

    I had the opposite. A flat white with too much milk. And it wasn't strong enough.

    And I may have managed to spill (clean I hasten to add!) cat litter over myself and had gritty feet . That was quite annoying.

    @lanokia, I have my coffee black, so I always hand the cup back and ask for it to be filled. I do tell them I want a black americano, so it should really be filled.
    In some shops they will do so, but not many!

    I have an Americanism with cold milk. Sometimes I get hot milk. I don’t like hot milk.

    What I want is a generic filter coffee with some cold milk in it. I have no idea which of the words on the board mean that.

    Yep - I reckon Grayling must have been involved with this particular Windows "feature".

    The computer's been on for ages, sitting there doing nothing. It's then time to go home, and all of a sudden it comes up with "Applying updates, do not turn off your computer".

    I'm used to this idiocy now, and take preventative measures, but even so.

    Did I mention list makers and motivational poster quoters?
