That's So Annoying

Do you have things that annoy you?  They don't make you mad, they just bother you?  I do.
It's so annoying when:
  • Books don't give a description of what they are about. I don't blindly buy books just because they are written by a certain author.  I want to have some idea of what the book is about.  It annoys me when all I get about a book are glowing reviews and nothing else.  I don't care if so and so loved it, I want to know what the book is about.
  • Older drivers drive slowly in the mistaken belief that they are safer at slower speeds.  They aren't.  They are just annoying to those of us driving the speed limit, and occasionally a hazard.
  • I'm doing the dishes and turn around and find another sink full of dishes scattered around the house.  This one will probably plague me for the next 15 or so years. Kids are awesome at leaving dishes around the house. Right now mostly cups and bowls, I know later it will be plates and spoons and forks and...   
  • Finding half full cups, cans of soda, etc. around the living room.  Why can't the kids finish a cup of liquid, be it milk, soda, eggnog, juice, koolaid, whatever.  I inevitably find half full vessels in the family room, living room, attic--where ever the kids hang out.  
  • Allergies.  You'd think that with winter here the allergies would take a break, but no.  Since there is no snow on the ground, the dust just blows with the wind and stirs up all the allergens and I turn into sniffy girl.
I guess these could be called pet peeves.  But really they aren't pet anything, just annoying.  You have any of these?  Do tell.

I'm so with you on the dishes and the ½ empty containers .... add to that dirty laundry and turn up in the strangest places right after I asked the kids if I have all their dirty laundry

I think I could have written half of this list too. My kids always ask to have a picnic while eating lunch but then never ever clean it up- obviously I need to stop allowing the picnics.

And yes-- I want a description too! Plus it would be nice if books had some sort of rating guideline- so I know what I am getting into.
