Packaging that has built-in resealable zip-loc closures. Excellent idea when done right.
Too many require cutting so close to the zip strip in order to open, that there's nothing to grasp when re-opening. Unless you have your fake nails on.

Every organization now follows up with an email. I attended a special event at my lgbtq affirming church this Sunday and by Sunday night I had a survey from them about the event. The event is being organized by some snack cake in his 20s so I guess that’s natural for him. I should probably just be happy that I have such places to go. Some gays do not.

"Please remember to scan every item before placing it in the bagging area."
"The weight of the item in the bagging area does not match the item scanned. An associate is on the way to help you."
Here's an idea: put the "associate" behind a register so I don't have to work for the goddamn supermarket.

Having to charge all our electronics. (E.g. AirPods, iPhone, MacBook Pro, etc.) So many of our things (even toothbrushes) have to be charged and sometimes it's hard to keep track of it all and super annoying when you need to use it but you forgot to charge it.

R27, I can't use my electric toothbrush while it's on the charger. And my electric shaver doesn't work while plugged into the charger either. I bet this is a safety feature so you don't toaster-bath yourself with a wet plugged in appliance.

My home liposuction machine goes on the blink about every time I use it. Blood starts coagulating and clogs it up. And in spite of what they say, the fat that comes out is not really good for cooking.

Cheap ass plastic water bottles that don't stand upright and/or the lid doesn't tighten. I'm all for less plastic and less waste, but is it asking too much for a bottled water to hold the actual water?

My pet peeve is the small, shining lights on everything: smoke alarm, a couple of my electrical outlets in my house have them, Wi-Fi router, stove (clock), etc.
I have a studio apartment and I like to sleep in as much darkness as possible. (I do turn of the Wi-Fi at night.)

Magazines and newspapers online. It is beyond aggravating to read an article hell, even a blog post these days while being bombarded by ads. I have every ad blocker on the planet and there is still always automatic playing videos and endless ads crowding the page layout. Oftentimes the page has to reload because it basically crashes while I’m reading it. Drives me insane.

The one that drives me most insane in that category, r40, is the news video that starts playing when you click to an article you want to read, and the video does not correspond in any way to the story it is preventing you from reading.
