    Firestick remotes.

    Seems to me that the batteries they come with last a fair wee while, then when they runs out and you need to replace them, all of a sudden they don't last that long. Even if it's Duracells.

    Constantly having to open the back, take them out and swap them about to get it working again. * pain in the hole.

    Wouldn’t surprise me to be honest. I’ve seen some devices have chips configured in such a way that they will only run at their most efficient with the oem batteries. Especially stuff that uses rechargeable batteries and in some cases they don’t even accept a new battery even if replaced with an oem one. Planned obsolescence

    Getting sent to do the shopping and coming back only to be told that I had forgotten to get something she had asked me to get (even though she clearly didn't) and having to go back out to get it as it was "all my fault for forgetting in the first place" just to avoid any hassle

    Loud * on public transport and exactly the reason I drive every time when I need to. Why the big need to have conversations on your phone over loudspeaker and it’s usually these dour * on either end of the phone who just talk utter nonsense.
