#392: Insurance Commercial Savings Claims

Scam insurance commercials that state "On average customers save $480 when switching to xxx".  The scam is that people only switch (most of the time) when they CAN save so it's not like you will save that much.  But they are implying that the average person could save that much when they switch when it is not true and I don't think most people read the fine print that states that the statistic is based on only people that switch.  Severity: 1

#391: People Taking Pictures at Sporting Events

Unless it's some really good action photo where you are very close to the field of play, people taking shots of the players from afar baffle me in that I don't know why they think that picture will be of interest to themselves or anyone else ever.  It's not like you are showing some mysterious game to a native tribe that has never seen the sport played before.  But people love playing with their gadgets and not focusing on the actual enjoyment of the sport and just watching it for its own sake.  Severity: 2

#390: Wedding Cake Ritual

I don't like that thing where the bride and groom feed each other the wedding cake and everyone gets all excited whether the person with get it all over the other's face.  It's dumb and played out.  Severity: 2
