1. Using the word "like" between every other word, then interspersing "ummm" just to be less understandable.
2. Monotone voices that put you to sleep.

One that really irritates me is damned politicians saying "at this point in time". Complete stupidity as there is no such thing.
The correct term is, "now".

1. People using obscure driver downloaders and insisting that it's safer than downloading the drivers manually from the official page.
2. People who buy those phone covers in which you put your ID and CC as well.
3. C errors.
4. When parents insist that their kid's PC got broken because they use it too much.
5. When the phone battery jumps from 40% to 15% (Yeah I know, I should really get that replaced)
6. When I do extensive troubleshooting on a machine that does not power up just to realize it was unplugged (Yeah, I have the memory span of a beer molecule)

7. People

Why would someone want to install a crapload of bloatware, and another entire media player just to play one single video format, when they just need a codec pack? This is NOT an answer to the question! This one drives me absolutely bonkers too.
3. Complaining about good advice, making bogus characterizations, and giving bad advice.
