Minor Annoyances... What Are Yours?S

I hate applying for awards. Why can't I just do good work and (hopefully) be good at teaching people things? Is this not sufficient?

No, apparently this is not sufficient if I ever want to become a Fancy Academic Person (TM). So here I sit, applying for an award. Barf. This just feels mastabatory.

What are the minor annoyances in your lives? Go on, gripe away. It's fun!
