Things that have annoyed me recently

1) The Laser printer near my desk prints duplex for _every_ print out, even if there's only stuff on one side.  So you stand there while it puts out a blank page, pulls it back in and then prints on the other side.  How on earth did that make it through quality control?

2) WiFi routers that come with default WiFi SSID names that are the same for every router.  All Linksys routers, for instance, seem to have a default of "Linksys".  Which means that if I'm walking past one as I wander for the bus in the morning and check my email it asks me if I want to connect to the Linksys router.  Which I would, if it was the Linksys belonging to whichever of my friends had the original router I paired my phone with - but not with every other Linksys on the damned planet.  SSIDs should be (near)unique!!!!  (This maye have been bothering me for a while).
