50 things i dislike

to contrast my ancient '100 things i like' list...but for brevity's sake (and so you will believe i am 2/3 positive and only 1/3 negative) there are only 50 things i don't like.

1. the way seafood smells before it's cooked
2. speakers/mics/headphones that crackle

7. white sheet cakes
8. the fact that people can be poor singers and still be on the radio
9. drivers that are completely oblivious to the fact that they're driving
