#245: TV Credits

I find it disrespectful to the cast and crew and annoying to me when they run TV credits in some tiny 1/4 of the screen that you could only read if you had a 52" TV. On TNT, I just saw them actually running the credits to the previous show in this little 1/10th part of the bottom of the screen as the opening theme was running for the next show. I don't have a magnifying glass with me and I don't think most other do either, so what's the point? I'd be pissed if I was in the show and didn't get the recognition because the channel was trying to squeeze in more commercials or promos. Severity: 2

#244: Phone Customer Service

I find it inconsiderate of companies when you call their customer service number with automated prompts and one of the prompts says to press some number to speak to a representative, but when you do, it says they aren't there, try back this other time. They should not tease you with the prospect of speaking with a real person when it's outside their business hours. Severity: 2

#243: Joannie's hat on Deadwood

I just think it's so lame with that thing hanging down the back.

#242: finger licking

That old-fashioned thing some people do when turning flipping through pieces of paper or turning the page in a book of licking their fingers to get a better grip on the page is both unnecessary and unsanitary. Severity: 2
