    Angry Things that annoy you

    The command to remove an entire line in Emacs (Ctrl + K) is the same as the beginning of the save command in Borland (Ctrl + K + S). This often leads to unexpected results, especially when trying to save in Emacs .

    The command to "step into" for Turbo Debugger & OllyDBug is the same as "End Debug" for VC++......there's a message box to say are you sure, but its still a pain

    Well I misunderstood the subject line, and now I'm all phsyced-up to say what annoys me, so I'll just say it anyway - I'm annoyed by the general stupidity of people. I quote Seinfeld: I'll never understand people - they're the worst!

    This really annoys me.

    Why is everything in Windows called 'My Something'?

    I have My Computer, My Documents, My Music, My Little Pony etc.

    I don't want to save documents under 'My Documents', I have my own filing system thank you.
    OS: Windows XP

    Even worse: Why does Windows insist on recreating these folders all the time. I keep removing them, but they come back the next day. Now THAT's annoying .
