Today’s post is going to be a little bit of a fun rant. I was thinking about loads of little things that annoy me and thought I’d share it with you guys. So, I came up with seven of life’s most annoying problems:
For me, junk mail is a major annoyance. I get it in droves; it comes from everywhere. I have junk mail in all of my email inboxes. My mailbox is littered with junk from companies I’ve never heard of. Food menus, free magazines, I didn’t ask for this stuff, stop sending it to me, please!

Sometimes, there’s a place for cold showers in your life. Maybe it’s a hot day, and you need to cool off? However, there’s nothing more annoying than having a warm shower, only for it to turn cold midway through. Usually, this is down to someone in your family flushing the toilet. Or, using the hot water in the kitchen sink. Is it too much to ask for a few minutes to shower in peace?!
Missing A Parcel Delivery
This is a 21st Century problem; that’s for sure! Have you ever ordered anything to be delivered to your home? You stay in all day waiting for the delivery, pop to the shops for five minutes, and come home to a note saying ‘we tried to deliver your parcel.’ If you’re lucky, it’s with a neighbor. If not, you have to reschedule a delivery or pick it up from a post office. So. Annoying.

Speaking of 21st Century problems, things don’t get more modern than this annoyance. I tell you, there’s something so infuriating about slow wifi. I hate having to wait for pages to load, or for a video to buffer. I need to look something up, fast! Half the time, I end up switching to my mobile data and racking up the cost of my monthly bill.
Getting A Puncture
Honestly, there are few things more annoying than getting a tyre puncture. Not only do they disrupt your day, but they end up costing you money too. Granted, disruption can be eased thanks to same day mobile tyre-fitting, but it’s still a pain. You still have to wait around and not use your car until you have a new tyre. Punctures are a surefire way to start your day with a frown.

Delayed Public Transport
Do you know why I hate tyre punctures so much? Because it might mean, I have to use public transport for a bit. And, that means standing around waiting for delayed trains and buses. Seriously, how hard is it to make trains run on time? It’s not rocket science, there’s no traffic, just let me be on time for once.
Waiting In Line
I tend to be a very patient person, but I can’t bear to wait in lines. If it’s a short one, then I’ll happily wait as the line moves along quickly. But long lines, with people taking ages in front of me? Nope, no thank you.
These are the seven things that annoy me more than anything! Let me know if you can relate to these, and whether or not you have more to add to the selection.
