When your computer does this at whim. It also has a pink colour scheme available. The other day it gave me a plaid pattern of green and pink stripes. Perhaps it's in the Christmas decoration spirit. It's a good computer and it served me faithfully, but this is getting ridiculous.

Snow and ice. I know, many people deal with it regularly and are used to it. In my neck of the woods though, it's a hassle.

On that note, winter rain. I'll take snow anytime.

When booking a simple ticket requires restarting the computer, fixing the internet connection multiple times, getting into a fight with the bank account thingymajig, selling your soul to the devil - and even so, only getting it after 10 or so tries.

Plagues of Morgoth!

Specifically, my nearly week-long (and still going) sinus infection and my daughter's "flu-like" virus.

Accidentally falling asleep for half a day when you had a ton of stuff to do.
