    Coffee shops that put milk into your tea along with the tea bag, thus lowering the temperature of the water, ensuring the tea doesn't brew properly and tastes like dirty water.

    @Gavin S Back in the mists of time, I somehow inadvertently hit the Databases channel. A fact that I've only realised today.

    I somehow HID the Databases channel. Not hit it. I now have several years of posts to catch up on, such is my OCDness.

    The assumption that people actually want to have milk in their tea is strictly a UK thing. But as someone who takes their tea black, I completely understand, and sympathize.

    Even my kids are numbered 0-3.

    I had an issue with my wife numbering our children 1-3, until I realized she views me as child #0.

    @Tim P Anything 1-based.

    @Gavin S Anything 1-based.

    I'd disagree

    I dislike indexes that start at 1
    But counts should start at 1

    But then I'm kind of pedantic about stuff like this

    That stupid little "press here to open box" on the side of a box of KD that is not perforated very well
    So when you DO press here to actually try & open the box you just crush the box
