When you're cranky at Neitz and the guy behind you is singing the entire davening in his annoying tune

When people have so many pet peeves they can open a zoo
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Car audio systems that have to rebuild the entire database of a USB drive each time the car is turned on, before one can switch tracks.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

YES YES YES! My car's system is borderline unusable. It could take half an hour until it's ready to browse the library, and then completely resets itself if you have the audacity to switch on the radio for a moment.

Ridiculous.

Rental cars that don't have a CD player.

Random flight attendant who accosted me in airport to tell me that I'm not allowed to push a stroller on a moving walkway. I told her "that's not a real rule." (I was safe since I was getting off a flight.)

Mine is not that bad, I think it rebuilds the database even if not on USB mode. However it is bad enough (including the bluetooth) to make me decide that if/when I lease another car, I will actually go for an upgraded audio system (something I thought I would never do).

The other thing is the inability to move within a track, just from track to track. IME both these issues are with the basic Honda audio systems. I've driven other cars that were better at the baseline (I even got a ride with a friend in his Nissan, and was surprised to see that bluetooth picked up and displayed a contact name in Hebrew!)

I know.

You should blame people who make posts like this
Even on a Friday I am not going to make a joke about this.
