Are you sure your washer/dryer don't have reversible doors?

They do. But it is a nightmare to remove the entire front and reverse the doors...........

.....without the washer leaking.

They give you the instructions but it sucks to do it.

What's more annoying? This or having to lift the laundry above the doors?

Lifting it is a pain but I never switched after a friend had water damage from a leaking door on the same model. The newer ones seal better.

The standard (medium) sized fast food cup cannot be placed in my car's cup holder while car is in park. Must apply brake, shift into drive, place cup, and receive food bag. (Keep foot on brake while receiving food bag!)

I have never found a built-in soap tray in any bath/shower with the ridges high enough to keep the bottom half of a bar of soap from turning to mush.

Every tooling cart in every machine shop I have ever seen is designed by some unknown enemy, with the intent of causing injuries large enough to affect my work, but just barely too small to be a workman's comp claim.

Why does the airbag kill my engine? What if I need to back up and hit whatever-it-is again?

As Glock knows very well, in times of stress and excitement, you lose fine motor coordination. Therefore, why do condoms require so much fine motor function to access and deploy?

How much weight/material/money is actually saved by equipping my economy car with an eight-inch afterthought of a lug wrench?

Why does nobody in the world seem to make an affordable, practical, concealed carry holster I can wear while backpacking, then carry on a day hike after dropping backpack? It wouldn't be hard...

I'll come back with more later, probably, those are just off the top.

Baby strollers. I am only 5 ft 10 inch and they are too short for me to push without hunching over. When I have grandkids I am building extended handles.

I had the air vent in my bedroom moved shortly after I bought the house, for this exact reason.

Electronic emergency brakes, how the heck am I supposed to do e-brake slides into my driveway when I'm bringing my girlfriends son home from school? It's a disappointment.

Yup. I don't get these at all. Give me 5 seconds, for cry in out loud.

And then you shook it all about. . . because you were in the shower and had the same system installed.

Normally on the right???? Depends on the room. Of the 8 door'd rooms in my house, only. . . 3 (it was 4 before we split my old BR into a study and smaller BR and pulled the door off the frame) are right-side light switches. The rest are left due to location/door needs issues. OTOH, all my doors open the correct way to access the light switches.

Same. In fact, hooking up everything was much easier, since I wasn't trying to facilitate a six-inch dryer vent connection with the dryer in place. With the reversed positions, I attached the long washer hoses and left the washer pulled out. Then, I hooked up the flexible dryer hose to the dryer and then had plenty of room back there to bring it sideways to the wall. Then, I moved the dryer into its final position. Finally, I moved the washer into its final position. All that extra hose length means the hookup was easy, and I can easily pull out the appliances to clean the goo from behind them.

Stop buying appliances from HD and Lowe's. Go to a real appliance store. They will get it right at the store, deliver it, set it up, show you how it works and make sure it is 100% before leaving.

I've got a 12 yr old Maytag Neptune I need to replace. I'm actually looking forward to it. LOL

How about living in a global world without matched standards?

English v Metric measurments.
Different voltages, AC frequencies (60 and 50 Hz), and plug designs in every country.
Left-hand drive in some pretty big and neighborly countries.

healthcare...fml. 30% off my salary now comes from "patient satisfaction" which generally involves giving people something they don't need (antibiotics, narcotics, etc). hospitals are becoming big vending machines, and we're held hostage by the government (withheld payments).

Tables that have 4 legs, none of them sit flat so they rock. All tables should have three legs and the problem is solved.

I've been in restaurants where the tables rocked so bad, you were scared to sit your drink down. It wouldn't be so bad if there was a deck of cards there to shim it up.
