But then, it's true for any petty hate. If you don't notice it happening it's hard for it to annoy you.

Oh I dunno, the Wee Frees are in a state of perpetual irritation at the possibility of someone, somewhere enjoying themselves at any given moment.

Wide computer screens. Who thought that they were a good idea?

My employers have started issuing us with widescreen laptops. oddly enough, we don't spend more than 5 or 6 hours a day watching DVDs at work. Most of what we do involves portrait shaped documents. Our record keeping system works up an down rather than side to side. Letters and reports work that way too.

And the internet is all up and down rather than side to side.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Unless the screen is big enough to put 2 pages up side by side.
Very useful when reading a reference document while writing something.
