Why? Why do they do this? I know its to keep the end nice and neat but trying to undo it is a total nightmare. I end up using 14 sheets.
Anyone else have any hates?

Damn annoying, isn't it? I just rip through with brute force.

I really hate people who stand on escalators so that the rest of us can't pass. Or in doorways, hallways, or just anywhere. Get out da way!!

Who's next?

People with 4x4's who use the mother and baby spaces cos they can't park in a normal space.

People who smell worse than I do. (Fortunately, they're rare.)

Had to give up my favorite brand 'cause of that within the last month! They changed their formulation on the glue or something and it was nigh impossible to manage - especially at 3:30 in the morning, which is the only time the bloody thing ever runs out.

People who stand in doorways should be shot. As should women who take ages getting their stuff together and moving away from the counter after paying whenever I'm in a shop.

Customer service that doesn't actually provide a service. That is to say, they don't correct the problem you call or write about; they only quote policy and tell you why they can't.

Also, voicemail at businesses. That's just a way of saying to the customer, "I'm too busy to deal with you."

Oh! And the sales people at Best Buy and Circuit City. They spend all their time answering questions on the phone, while ignoring the customers standing there trying to hand them money. If I ever decide to shop at either of them again, I will call them on a cell phone once I'm inside so I can get some freaking help.

Small town newspapers that have a free paper delivered to the end of my driveway, even though I don't want it and only have to pick it up and carry it around back to the trash twice a week.

People who get a sweet puppy and love it to pieces for about three months, then put it out in the yard and forget it.

I'm sure there are more. I'll come back when I think of them.

I did that at WalMart a few weeks ago! It works. I was out in the Garden Shop and someone ahead of me had a credit card problem. They called for a manager... and called for a manager... and called for a manager...

I pulled out my cell phone and asked the young woman behind the counter for the store phone number. She gave me a stunned look and finally the number. I got the store operator on the line (who is actually someone in Women's Clothing!), then got the store manager and guess what? He discovered he could come right away.

"Options" when calling my bank. Why can't I just speak to someone?

Just saying.

People who treat their children like this.

People who drive at 95 mph, tailgate until you move to another lane... If only I were rich I would slam my car into theirs...

People who takes young, obnoxious, hyperactive kids to coffee shops...

People who hold up the checkout lines just to argue about a $.45 can of cat food, and then proceed to pay with coins (after searching for them for another five minutes). People who take their time writing out their checks (if you know you're going to pay at Kroger's, wouldn't you have filled out the check already, except the dollar amount, while you're waiting in line?)

People who talk about politics and religions the first second they arrive at a party. People who insist on talking about politics or religions with you even if you don't know them.

"I was standing around in a casino the other day and a guy came up to me and said "Excuse me sir, you need to move. You're blocking the fire exit." As though, if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flamable and have legs, you're never blocking the fire exit."

Back to toilet paper complaints. My greatest hate is when a fingertip breaks through...

I know! Who feeds their 8yo coffee?! o.O And not just coffee, but espresso with a ton of sugar and two servings of chocolate.
