On Molly’s last day off, we walked over to Harvey’s for supper. The food was good, but I was blinded by another customer using a flashlight half the time I was eating.
Websites annoy me with their useless error messages. “Something went wrong,” try again later and the likes.
I have been predominately using Kagi Search with great results. I just accidentally clicked on the old Google bookmark and saw yet another annoyance with the way they’ve changed to add to the list.
The other day, I accidentally booted into windows for something. I was reminded just how hostile the experience can be when I had to click through ads when I logged in.
One major problem with “apps” is how so many of them use tiny text that is nearly impossible to read. I came across that problem today trying to update my billing information for Verizon.
What would it be like if shopping in person at a store would be like online shopping? It would be annoying as hell.
This morning I clicked a link to a news article about something, and as it turns out the website was a heap of shit. It was a new low for annoyances, with a sticky header that took ⅔ of the page and an autoplay video in it.
I love when websites make assumptions and refuse to work for me. Today I tried to use one that assumed I was on mobile, I guess because of my window size. When I maximized the window, it would load.
Once again I had to close the doors and windows this evening due to fire pit smoke coming in the house.
I have been noticing more often that websites are doing the annoying confirm that you’re a human thing. I’ve had a few store websites do that upon clicking from the search engine. That is a lost sale from me at least.
X delivery is absolutely the worst shipper I have ever gotten packages from.
I hate that legitimate companies find any way they can to spam you. The fact that I’ve made multiple orders should be enough that I don’t need text spams.
I don’t want to keep being added to your spam list with programs that are completely irrelevant to me. Last time I checked I’m neither a woman or a mom so I wouldn’t be allowed to do your woman’s only class.
Smart phone apps sure go out of their way to find ways to trick you. Today I got a fake screenshot spammy one. That is a sure file way to get your app instantly deleted.
have been wondering why it is that so many websites seem to overcomplicate things. I think that dangers have contests to see how many clicks at can take to do normal things.
We’ve all been annoyed by the many disruptive pop ups on website. The current fad is for them to beg for you to subscribe with your email address so that they can spam you.
We finally got to go get our own groceries today after the whole COVID quarantine. Nothing has changed at the grocery store. People are still self-centered asses.
Sometimes you come across a website that refuses to accept valid information. My address having a half in it is often a victim of that. Don’t use scripts to be smart if you can’t get it right.
Maybe it’s time that I start leaving one star reviews for these apps that have random popups nagging you to leave a review. They seem to come up at the worst possible times too.
I despise SEO with a passion. It brings up so many irrelevant websites for my search terms. Half of the ones that show up actually have the content behind a required login or worse yet behind a paywall. What ever happened to that being a big nope to Google?
The modern web has so many annoyances. It was funny to see a page about them having so many of them itself. You know, the sticky social links crap and don’t forget the delayed pop ups.
Now that we took the air conditioner out of the window I got woken up by AMTRAK’s work train doing their middle of the night track work. I get why they do it then but it’s still annoying when it interrupts my sleep.
It’s great that people let the kids do whatever they want to do. I was standing in line in the grocery store when a kid came running down the isle. It bounced off my calf after he hit me full force. Not a word was said to the kid and not even a fake “sorry.”
I just happened to take a look at a local business’ Facebook page. We were customers at one point and wondered how they were doing. With the current travel restrictions there’s a big wave of visitors dropping in. Oh the business is currently closed too. Fake reviews like this make me as customer skip right past your business.
A big annoyance for me is how so many Android apps force you to hold your device in either portrait or landscape mode.
I have no need for social media to remind me of any elections. Even worse is the remind me of the Pennsylvania primary which I can’t vote in as an independent.
Too many people have either forgotten or don’t understand wht Memorial Day is. To them it’s just the first long weekend fo the summer. That’s why they they say “Happy Memorial Day.” THre’s no reason to say that as it shouldn’t be a happy day.
It never fails. When I decide to do a running WOD everyone needs to drive down our Alley. It can go hours without a car passing until I go out there to run. It seems that someone has to drive on it every lap.
Finally the grocery store got rid of the one way isle. They were annoying and people, especially old people flat out ignored them. If Giant wanted to actually be helpful they would have put the stupid robot away.
Android apps really do frustrate me sometimes. I just spent who knows how long trying to use a well known pharmacy’s app to get my thyroid pill prescription delivered.
Another annoying design trend on website is the large unideable headers. They don’t scroll and sometimes take up a good portion of the screen space for no good reason at all other than some designer liking the idea.
It’s getting old seeing people congregate or have little getogethers. Just because you want to do something doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. A toddler wants to touch the hot stove.
Sometime you come across a website that refused to accept my valid address. Mail gets delivered here every day so it must be valid. fractions are allowable in addresses.
Windows 10 update is painfully slow. Hell Windows 10 is painfully slow with everything it does to the point that it’s almost unusable.
I would be nice if paywalled websites could be pushed down in the search results. Even a filter would be great. That will never happen because there’s too much money involved.
I don’t need to have an animated scroll effect on a website when I click support. Stop with being fancy and just work.
I don’t use Windows that often but when I do it’s only because is need to do something that requires it. Windows 10 really seems to pick the worst times for its auto updates.
The endless scroll that websites have had the fad of using has become annoying. There’s times where it makes sense, like when things are a feed but most times it’s just annoying.
I’ve complained about the stupid email sign up for our mailing list popups before, but here I am again.
The other day we had to go to Best Buy to pick something up. Out of nowhere, a woman comes over to us, trying to get us to switch electric companies.
I really don’t need or want multiple spams a day from the same company. Recently I was getting them from a company who had Crossfit shoes that I liked. Legitimate companies should not have to spam.
I am not one to start trouble but we’ve been getting a thick haze of smoke every night in the neighborhood. I finally found the source. A few houses down the street has a fire pit that they seem to just let smolder all night. Not smart or legal.
Don’t try to use guilt to get your customers to do things. You serve them. Not the other way around.
I don’t check my email that often these days because of the insane amount of spam that I seem to get. Please don’t add me to multiple mailing lists when I buy your product or service.
One thing I’ve noticed long ago and have probably complained about it before is is that restaurants have some of the worst websites out there. Their fancy but slow and have only useless information on the often times.
Please stop using auto play videos on news articles. It’s fine to have the video but allow me to chance to click play if I’d like to watch it. Don’t eat my bandwidth and processing power for nothing.
Daily spam messages are not what I signed up for when I purchased something. Please stop abusing my inbox if you’re a legitimate company. Reserve that for spammers and MLM shit.
Just because I made just one purchase from a website doesn’t mean I want to sign up for the daily spam.
FedEx is easily the worst shipping company I’ve ever hand anything delivered by. I go so far as to not buy from stores that I know use them if I can avoid it.
The guy down the street has 3 dogs that bark non stop all day long. They are the kind with loud barks. I love dogs but don’t want to hear them all day long.
How ironic it is to have to post this today. I went to check the sprouts on our milkweed. A bunch of them were broken and smashed. The non Parented neighbor kids were out there last night.
It’s nice enough to have the windows open. Of course, that means it’s nice enough for the chain-smoking neighbors to be out with their cancer sticks, polluting our house.
Disrespectful neighbors strike again. This time they had a ball in our yard that I didn’t see and it broke the lawnmower blade.
I’ve always thought that handwriting sucks. It’s nearly impossible for me to read anyone’s handwriting, let alone my cursive.
It’s amazing to me how crappy Comcast’s email service is. It has taken over a week for me to get legitimate emaIls. Sending email through them is unreliable too.
Our local newspaper has decided they want me to pay a few dollars to read 15 articles online. The thing is, I already have a subscription to get the physical version delivered. Why should I pay twice?
I get pretty annoyed by stores having their cashiers ask I would like to donate a dollar to a charity when I pay my bill. If and when I am able to donate, I do on my own.
I really wish that websites would chill out with the annoying windows begging for my email address.
CAPTCHA Are one of the few things that I truly hate. All they are is an hindrance for me with my visual impairment. The audio ones are so muffled that I can’t make them out with my less than perfect hearing.
I looked up a local pizza place’s website to see if they deliver. Their website was a train wreck. All sorts of pointless flash as used.
I had to sign into Microsoft Live today and for had the nearly impossible visual CAPTCHA. I tried the audio one and that was just as bad if not worse than the visual one.
Thee other day I stumbled on a website for a Pizza place in Mount Joy. It was a terrible website that required flash or didn’t give you any information. I hate flash websites for the sake of being “pretty”
I have been seeing sites blocking websites when you use Firefox because of adblock. It’s not Firefox that’s the problem. It’s the shitty ads.
CAPTCHAs strike again. I came across a website this morning that I just was unable to sign up for. They lost when the text in the picture was too distorted to read.
This is pretty annoying. I haven’t seen it as often as I used to, but I got a page that wouldn’t load because my browser is unsupported.
CAPTCHAs are a terrible idea. They’re not only an annoyances for everyone but they hurt accessibility for the visually impaired too.
