We all have little (and big) thing that irritate us. Some of mine:
Hangers that don’t function. It never fails. Whenever I start looking at clothes in a store, they slip off the hangers. Everyone in the fashion industry seems to hang their stock on the same thin, cheesy, narrow hangers. You’d think a store that’s selling expensive clothes wouldn’t want them falling on the floor all day long.
Food in salad bars that looks like it’s been sitting there for days. There’s a “gourmet” food store in Manhattan with a salad bar so distasteful looking that the health department should condemn it.
Executives who hire officious assistants or train their assistants to be officious. You can always tell how nice a boss is going to be by how his assistant treats you.
People who are constantly checking their Blackberry while you’re talking to them.
