We all have those one or two problems which really bug us from time to time. The truth is, no matter how good your life is, there is always something which can end up annoying you. Regardless of what position you are in in life, there are some things which nobody can avoid. The good news? There is more often than not a solution to these little worries. The problem is often that finding that solution can be difficult. However, with a little dedication (and maybe some research) it can more often than not be done. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the top ten most annoying everyday problems – and what you might be able to do about them.

Failing Wi-Fi

Whether it is at home or at work – or even in a cafe – this is one of those problems which gets to almost all of us at one point or another. Worst case scenario: it happens just as you are about to finish an important project, leaving all of your work unsaved. This can be a real nightmare, but there are some solutions.Investing in a mobile broadband dongle might be one way to get around this issue. That way, you at least have some back-up.

Tyre Puncture

Cars present us with all sorts of problems of varying kinds. One of the most frequent – and most annoying – is when you have a tyre puncture. This is just about the last thing that anyone wants – yet it happens to many people, every day. If you are lucky, it will happen when you are at home. That way, you can at least have a home tyre fitting.

Stuck In Traffic

We have all been there: you’re on your way to work when suddenly you hit a wall of traffic. Traffic is just part of the ebb and flow of the roads, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying. The last thing anyone wants is to be stuck in traffic, at any time. To minimize the likelihood of this happening to you, reduce the amount of car journeys you have to make.

Noisy Neighbours

We all enjoy having a party on a Friday night. Most of us would not wish that our neighbours didn’t have a good time. However, when things get out of hand it is a different matter altogether. There is nothing worse than noisy neighbors while you are trying to sleep. Hopefully, a polite word is all that it will take to keep them quiet.

Lost Delivery

These days, most of our purchases happen online. This is great for the most part, saving us money and time. However, there are few things more annoying than when your delivery gets lost in the post. Unfortunately, there is little that we can do about this – except hope and pray that it makes it here next time. If you are lucky, the original one might arrive after you have complained. In that case, you might have a cheeky freebie on your hands!

Forgotten Passwords

One of the major annoyances with having so many online accounts is the passwords. We all know the danger of having one password for everything. Then, if anyone finds out what it is, they can get into anything they like! This is the solution most people go for. Instead, keep your passwords memorable, different – and yet related to each other thematically. That way, you at least know the kind of word it is likely to be.


It really makes little difference whether it is you or your partner who is doing the snoring. Either way, it can be enough to cause a ruined night. In some cases, it might even cause damage in the relationship! Fortunately, there are some special anti-snoring devices which just might be of help.

Staying Late At Work

Most jobs have definite timescales, but even then there are those who expect you to stay late. This is one thing which really annoys most people – being asked to stay late at a moment’s notice. Even worse if it is on a Friday.

Shops Closing Early

You want that one item you have been waiting all week for. You leave work, only to find that the shop has closed early for refurbishment – or for no real reason at all. The only real solution to this problem is to try and plan ahead with your shopping.

Parking Tickets

Finally: nobody likes them, and that is particularly so when they stick parking tickets on your car. For added annoyance, what about when you have not even parked illegally? Fortunately, in these cases you might be able to make an appeal. Either way, it’s always worth trying.
