Stuff they made uBlock Origin for. But when a website doesn't comply with GDPR, now that grinds my gears.

How about when (insert website here) changes their ads and uBlock hasn't updated yet!

I have never seen that happen. But you also have a manual selection tool so it's not too much of a hassle.

How about when your adblocker allows "acceptable" ads?

That's exactly why you steer away from ABP and choose Ublock so that the accepted ads are controlled entirely by you.

You can still block them with ABP too, I just wanted to complain.

Company's using lockdown to take the piss and not deliver my sh*t.

 

I've used over a dozen companies and bought well over 3 dozen items in the last 4 months and it takes you 4 weeks to (not) deliver a 5 pack of T-shirts despite 2 assurances that they would arrive by a certain date?

 

Get f*cked, gimme my money back punk.

I hate it when a song plays in the middle of the commercial break on a radio station, and then the commercial hotline plays after the song. Nashe Radio is really bad in doing this, like, sometimes, there's a commercial break, it plays the commercial hotline afterwards, and then it's back to the music, but most of the time, they pull off sh*t like this. Is it really too much to ask to just play one more commercial before the hotline and then play the music after the hotline?!

When I see the phrase 'the new normal'. I know it's kind of silly but I associate it with not so pleasant news so I get kind of irritated seeing this phrase

When someone is trying to tell you a funny story through their fits of laughter but it turns out to be not funny.

It's annoying when an ATM is broken, it's even more annoying when it's tempermental, it's a lottery whether it'll give you your money or decide nah, i'l just swallow your card instead, I hate using those ones that swallow the card whole, I always feel like it's a gamble, and the ATM will sh*t itself and just commandere your card, or worse spit it out 5 minutes later and some randomer will go on a spending spree.

I have a problem with pronouncing the letter 'r', so, I don't blame them except when they write another totally different last name in my case like they are deaf.

 

So, mostly I write for them my second last name when some people wants the full name to avoid errors especially in very important documents.

I do a little as well. Sometimes people think my name is "Carmen" when I speak it and it's so annoying.

Adding onto this when the question gets an answer and it's just somebody saying they have the same problem, so what? You get my hopes up just to say that.
