project managers who insist that you drop your critical modifications to the database structure, or your fix of the memory leak, because the GUI's colour scheme needs to be fixed *now*.

web designers who design a page so badly they force horizontal scrolling

web designers who believe "cross-browser" means compatible with "both" browsers

programmers who believe "cross-platform" means compatible with Win9x and NT/2k

monks who post really long lines of code in a SoPW, forcing me to scroll horizontally. (for instance, a 200-character hex string to be unpacked.)

monks who frontpage really long lines of code in a SoPW, forcing me to scroll horizontally.

all the stupid $@#! users where I work, who turn off their UPSs and wonder why their computers suddenly go dark and won't turn on, who get confused when they see a "You may now safely turn off your computer" message because they don't know where the power button is, much less the reset button.

programmers who write version checking using == instead of >=

programmers who write stuff that's not backwards-compatible, therefore requiring a == version check.
