Displeasure

Those stupid subscription flyers in magazines. Have you ever met someone who actually subscribed through those?

People who ask a question in class, but actually end up asking 5 questions, so they overwhelm the speaker and he doesn't know what to say:
So, I guess, what types of funds would you recommend? Index funds or stocks? Do you use ETrade or Datek? How long will it take?

STOP TALKING

People who complain about technology but don't take even one hour to learn about it. Actually, this is true for just about everything

Loud keyboards in class/meetings

People who furtively raise their hands in class. JUST PUT IT HIGHER SO WE DON'T HAVE TO WATCH YOUR JACK-IN-THE-BOX SHIT

When you put on dress pants and then dress socks, not realizing that your left pant leg is stuck in your sock. I imagine there are equivalent situations for women

Professors who invite speakers to class and end up explaining theoretical concepts and their own research. WHY DID YOU INVITE THE SPEAKER IF YOU'RE JUST GOING TO TALK AS USUAL?

Students whose executive summaries are not really executive summaries, but long paragraphs with the completely wrong level of analysis

Why don't you just type E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G and kill all of your birds with on beer can.

Guys who wear sweaty thick leather loafers with NO SOCKS. Do I even have to explain how stupid this is?

"Caller ID Blocked" calls on my cell phone, which get dropped as soon as I say hello, and then I never have any idea who called me in the first place. Way to eschew obfuscation, dickweed.

Fake soccer fans - you know, the guys who come alive during the World Cup or qualifiers because it's the cosmopolitan and fashionable thing to do. I'm a good American, and I hate soccer even during World Cup.

If you send those cards back blank, the magazine companies have to pay first class postage and not get anything in return. It's a small gesture, but still....
