    I have a few but I guess one of the main ones is tardiness..I cannot STAND to be late and people who are alwayssss late.I understand there are times when everyone has a reason for being late but those that are consistantly late everyyyy singleee day drive me nuts(not that I have far to go) I have a couple of co-workers that are on average 15-20 minutes late every shift.Leaving me to do the code cart, drug count, ect..it's just plain rude to me.I've told them this too.Didn't do any good though :/ And God bless my son..he gets out of bed 15 minutes before he has to be somewhere and then rushes like h*ll..I dunno where he gets that from cuz my hubby and I are both 'on time freaks' ..lmao

    Cigarette smoke. I realize that cigarette smokers have the right to pollute the air, but it really annoys the fire out of me, regardless.

    I hate being around cigarettes because I don't enjoy smelling like an ashtray.

    Patients who unnecessarily ride into the ER via ambulance and either expect you to find them a way home in the middle of the night or insist on a bedpan and a meal all in the same breath!
    Tail gaiters, rude people, double standards and nursing managers who have never worked in any other hospital who just can't see beyond "But we've done it this way for years!"

    People that take 30 minutes to tell a 2 minute story or event. Drives me up the wall!!

    It really makes me very angry when people don't rinse off their dishes. There is nothing more disgusting than dried on ketchup and macaroni and cheese in the dish water.

    hmmm.....I don't remember ever really getting angry.
    I've been upset. The last time was when I went to buy
    a bike and got poor customer service. I just told the manager that I was going to go elsewhere and try to find someone who wanted to sell me a motorcycle.
    But to get angry? I don't really go there.
