    I'm sure this thread has probably been done before, but it could be fun to revisit.

    Mine (among many): Stores that don't open on time. You say you open at 6, damn it, open at 6. Not 6:01. Not 6:02. Not 6:10. A few weeks ago, I arrived at a hair salon at 10 a.m. on a Saturday morning. They didn't unlock the doors for another 15 minutes. Just putzing around in there in the meantime.

    Women's basketball players who choose to delay being millionaires.

    People being late for something: I believe in the Vince Lombardi theory of being on time;

    If you're 15 minutes early, you're on time.
    If you're on time, you're 15 minutes late.
    If you're 15 minutes late, don't even bother showing up.
  5. What are you doing at a Hair Salon?

    Men go to barbershops.
    Without appointments. ;)

    Oh, it was like the $10 walk-in Hair Cuttery.

    Unless you run an airline.

    Totally agree.

    If you're taking public transportation, or face a commute that has heavy traffic, you need to factor in potential delays.

    At Continental Airlines, if you were late for a meeting, you could expect to find the conference room door locked, and to not be admitted -- no matter your title and rank.

    George W. Bush famously had the same rule, and it led to Colin Powell getting locked out of a meeting.

    I'm surely only worth being a secondary peeve

    Shedding, followed by pooping on the carpet.
