I am one of 'those' people. I hate bad service, incompetence, laziness and general disregard for other people as human beings.
It is so annoying to pay good money for a product/service and not get what you paid for. My family has been involved in the service industry all my life so perhaps I get a bit more peeved than others about bad service. I have sent back food and demanded a full refund, walked out of places after giving a drinks order when the goods haven't come promptly, refused to tip bad wait staff and THEN SOME. I am a force to be reckoned with - don't go out with me if you get embarrassed by confrontation! My other half is a lot more live and let live......I'm sure he thinks I go over the top some times but I think there are too many people, especially Irish people who let things slide. 'Ah, sure it's grand, I don't want to cause any hassle' - - Noooooooooooo
Anyway, that is really just my pet peeve, what REALLY gets my goat is workplace incompetence, be it within the company I work for or outsiders I deal with on a daily basis. In my last job, one of the lads used give me awful abuse for my 'angry hands' - when I'm really blowing my top I tend to wring my hands, while launching a tirade of abuse about whatever is annoying me to my fellow co-workers (poor things). I get so angry, it just bubbles up inside me, people who don't call back, people who won't take responsibilty for their work, who blame others for their mistakes, it's so frustrating!
For me, the absolute worst as an employee is when you are unable to do your job efficently because the company you work for is too tight/lazy/useless to provide you with the resources and then has the nerve to ask you why you are not performing to targets!
This is why I need to run my own business folks, or else just maybe get myself enrolled in some anger management classes.
