Also you forgot about the problems of walking up stairs with long skirts
And also the pet problem black doesn't look quite right when its covered it cat hair
Metal Detectors in Airports.......
Them moveing Step things *laughs*(Cant rember what they are called *heh*) you're Cote/cape/Dress gets Cought in them...
Runing home/some where. (Boots are way to much to Carry *laughs*).
When Super Drug or Boots Run out of Hair diy and you're roots are showing *Giggles*
I do agree with the "more goth than thow" people they can be very Annoying i tend to Find its more of the 19-35 year old goths who have that Attitude..Not all of them but some of them...
Not a problem per se, but annoying in any case:
trying to get your pikes off after a day of walking in them ... open a total of 14 buckles, remove bells/spikes etc and finally unzip them ...
You said the 19-35 year old goths seem to be snobbier...are you referring to old schoolers who look down on the dress-code type "Kinder Gothen" or just older goths in general?
jus like to say i agree on the cat hairs thing,lol... its a rite pain sumtimes
id also add boots with velco straps getting stuck every 5 mins to long skirts,lol
Another annoying thing is when, you reach across the table to get the salt. While holding your long sleeve back with the other hand so it dosent drag in your dinner.
yep, same thinging applies when using a mirror by a sink to say put makeup on, and the sleeve getting in way....
alot of times for me me clothing being to big cos they make it one size and im ikkle
Being drunk and trying to get through aforementioned buckles and buttons and loops and zips in order to use the toilet rather urgently.
I wish I had moved on from layering clothes. I really do. Either that, or drinking and using the toilet in general.
more on the sleeve thing ...
sleeves + clumsy me + cooking on a gas hob = burned clothes and scorched smells!
Rubber bracelets + sleeping = red dents on face.

Washing machine that won't properly rinse black clothing leaving a small white residue of washing powder on everything.
Cycling in a corset's not too good either...
Owtch and bugger to both of those...
Try liquid washing thingie. Works rather well for me
cat hairs are difinately a pain.
also for some reason they dont seem to sell any black clothes while the weathers nice... or at least thats the way it seems to be here.
as for the white residue, i usually hand wash a lot of my clothes. just because i dont like it when my shirts shrink and its all too small. but all you have to do is go out and buy that special soap for hand washing clothes, and then put it in the sink
-Running in New Rocks (already mentioned, but yea... they tend to run away wit me!)
-Unlacing knee high Dr Martens after a day of wearing them (20 eyelets!!!)
-finding clothes that fit when you're a slightly larger female (I have hips and an ass damnit!)
-avoiding the trap of ebay (*bows down* Oh how I love thee, online perveyor of random goth clothing and cool things)
- putting ONE BLACK SOCK in with your whites (yes I wear white, to all those of the uniform variety out there)
Umm.. that's it for now
Shutting doors whilst forgetting your wearing a trench coat.
Finding somewhere to get Absinthe
Difficult philosophy questions which you know what you mean and no-one else can understand what you're trying to say, making you look ineducated
Rolling your own without spilling baccy everywhere
Life in general
Trying to persuade your parents to let you paint your room black
Loosing the argument and so covering it black paper only to find out ITS MORE DIFFICULT THAT IT LOOKS
What do I listen to now? (U2 at the moment- you can't expect Bauhaus ALL the time)
What good film isn't on the Horror channel (very occasionally theres a Bela Lugosi)
Waking up at 7am
Finding your way round in a dark room
Is eyeliner and nail varnish too much for school?
Which one of my friends have overdosed now.
Where am I gonna get the money for all my expensive clothes from now
Random Burberry people at bus stops
And all the other problems of life that everyone faces
This may be the longest post I have ever posted.
Oh and Liking Marilyn Manson and Cradle of Filth, simply because of the music and image and having other goths think less of you. I still like Bauhaus, Siouxie, Type O, SoM, The Cure (again not strictly gothic) and a ton of classical stuff as well as *somethings completly different*
And trying to work out what it says when its vs instead of Us and Y instead of Is and Is instead of Js like Vampyres are Ivst rockyng!
"Shutting doors whilst forgetting your wearing a trench coat." - True; also sitting down in one and just about throwing yourself through the window trying to stand up again with your foot on the end of it. Very comical for anyone else, I guess.
"People" - Yep.
"Trying to persuade your parents to let you paint your room black.
Losing the argument and so covering it in black paper only to find out IT'S MORE DIFFICULT THAN IT LOOKS" - Yeah why won't the damn stuff ever stay up?!
"Waking up at 7am" - I would say alarm clocks in general. In fact, all mornings should be against the Geneva convention.
"Which one of my friends have overdosed now." - Yep. Or, for variation, playing the game of "Which friend would be calling me at this bloody time of the morning? And are they still going to be alive by the time I get there?"
