Bug List

This post will be about things that bug me, or annoy me. This may be difficult for me to come up with, but here we go. Here's a list of the 20 things that is a nuisance to me:

1) Sometimes I go to retail stores, and have to wait approximately 10 minutes in line, while the sales associate is right in front of me doing "work" as if he/she doesn't see me waiting in line.

Why this bug exists?
There may be a shortage of staff at the retail store, and that employee has many tasks to do at once.

2) When I am working at a retail job, and customers take out their bad day on me because I am at work, and there is nothing I can do/say to defend myself.

Why this bug exists?
Customer may be having a bad day, and need to take their anger out on someone.

3) My teacher assigning multiple assignments as if I don't have other classes.

Why this bug exists?
Teachers need to give assignments to their students to keep the course up to university standards.

4) Drivers going 10 mph and more below the speed limit.

Why this bug exists?
The driver may not be in a rush, or driver may be an elderly driver. Elderly drivers have a reputation for being really slow drivers.

5) Buying facial care products, and it does not meet my quality standards, and causes my skin to break out.

Why this bug exists?
Products are made with different ingredients. There is really nothing I can do about it, but choose which products agree with my skin.

6) Spending a lot of money on headphones, and they either stop working after a few months, or the audio is horrible.

Why this bug exists?
These headphones are not good quality, and the company is making a fortune off the profit of selling them.

7) Going to McDonald's for breakfast at 11:00 am, and then not being able to get any because breakfast time is over at the company.

Why this bug exists?
McDonald's probably wants many people to get up early to get their breakfast.

8) Having to get up early for medical appointments.

Why this bug exists?
Medical organizations are usually opened from 8 am to 5 pm. Sometimes I can end up with an early appointment.

9) Not having money to go shopping every month.

Why this bug exists?
I don't have a job at the moment. If I want this to happen, I probably need to get a job.

10) Employees that are unprofessional and rude. An example would be rescheduling your appointment without your knowledge.

Why this bug exists?
These employees are not properly trained, and think it's appropriate to reschedule clients' appointments without their permission.

11)  Getting to a store, not even having time to walk around, and someone asking if I need help.

Why this bug exists?
The employee is most likely trained to do this. I am not sure if he/she is just trying to help, but it is a nuisance.

12) Buying something and realizing the product is broken/damaged when I already get to my house, and then having to go back to the store to return it.

Why this bug exists?
This is both my fault and the store's fault as well. I should have checked the product carefully before leaving the store, and the store shouldn't be selling damaged products.

13) Nail polishes that chip within a week.

Why this bug exists?
The ingredients in the nail polish may be causing it to chip easily. 

14) Waiting in traffic on the highway because of work ahead. This causes me to be an hour late to my destination.

Why this bug exists?
Sometimes highway construction workers need to work on the highway, and this can cause traffic to move very slowly.

15) Shipping carriers taking an extra day to deliver what I ordered because the companies are not open on a holiday.

Why this bug exists?
Most companies are not open on holidays, and shipping carriers are no exception.

16) Turning on my computer to unexpected Windows updates that takes approximately an hour to finally update. The bad part about this is that I can't cancel the updates once it starts, and I can't do anything else with my computer.

Why this bug exists?
Computers using Windows need to update, but I should be able to choose when I want the updates to occur.

17) Notification numbers on the apps on my phone.

Why this bug exists?
Phone users need to know what is happening on their apps. For some reason these numbers annoy me, and I am sure I'm not the only one.

18) Scammers calling my phone trying to cheat me out of my money.

Why this bug exists?
There are many imbeciles out there, and scammers fall into this category.

19) Hair products that make my hair frizzy.

Why this bug exists?
Hair products are made differently, and some may not agree with my hair, but at least I tried it out.

20) Giving out my social security number and other private information to organizations just to register in their system.

Why this bug exists?
Organizations need to do background checks on their potential clients, and using personal information is a key factor to getting the results of that background check.

Coming up with 20 things that bug me was not as tough as I thought it was going to be. It did take me a while to come up with the list, but it was not difficult. The hardest part was writing about why the bug exists, which made me examine the situation to see what was really going wrong.

  1. Sorry it took me so long to get the link to your profile! I talked about one of your bugs in my bug list as well. Its when teachers believe they are the only ones assigning you work. This has gone on as long as I can remember and it has only become worse in college. Its always been annoying when you have three assignments or more due for a class which distracts me from all my other work which I am happy you understand as well.
