The Biggest Modern Day Gripes

Thanks to technology, there are a lot of modern conveniences that make our daily lives better, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still have things to complain about.

A new UK survey, which could easily translate here, asked folks to reveal their biggest gripes about modern society, and the responses ran the gamut from a phone battery dying to people taking up more than one seat on the train, to cancelled or late trains to drilling on a Saturday morning.

  1. People not listening to you
  2. People pushing into a line
  3. Someone who doesn’t say please/thank you
  4. People thinking rules don’t apply to them
  5. Splashing your favorite top/jeans with something
  6. People eating loudly/sloppily
  7. Lateness
  8. Drivers who don’t stop at a cross walk
  9. Washing clothes with a tissue in the pocket
  10. Paying to withdraw cash

But the biggest modern gripe seems to be a pretty simple one – people not listening to you. Coming in second was people pushing in line, followed by someone not saying please or thank you.
