Work conference calls
1) people who refuse to put themselves on mute and either type the entire time or have side conversations with people in the room with them.
2) people who won't STFU the entire time, monopolizing the call with their opinions and nonsense that don't affect 95% of the people on the call
3) people with horrible voices on bad connections who insist on talking as much as possible

All the execs at my office like to do their conference calls with the phone on speaker, and they yell at the speaker, with their office door open. I think they want us to look/listen and think, "Ohhh, he's up to something important."

Hospital Emergency Rooms. Every time my father goes to one he ends up having to wait at least 6 hours before they can finally get him into a room for overnight observation, and yesterday was no different. Damned bureaucracy. Plus the last time I spent an extended amount of time in one waiting with him, I got conjunctivitis for the first time in my life. Too many friggin sick people at the hospital!
