Things that are annoying

Let’s add something to the long list:

When I scan a document I have to lay it in portrait mode, even though the page is printed landscape. I scan it, rotate it appropriately and save it.

Dear software designers: wtf?

Sorry, I did understand what you meant. I was just continuing my gripe.

But that wasn't all that clear.
