    @BillPlunkett Clerks at a C-store who won't get off their cell phones long enough to take my 86¢ for a soda.

    Bet they'd get off the phone to chase you if you left without paying...

    @Norman P "performant" is not a word

    It is in German.

    First time I read (part of) this thread, and it's a very interesting read for a non-native speaker...

    One thing I really don't get about the English language is the using of commas -- most times it seems just the other way round I would use them in German.

    New pet peeve: how good Germans are at English. (Just kidding.)

    Try clicking on the desktop (or <Windows key> + D), then pressing <ALT> + <F4> to bring up a shutdown dialog with all the options.

    In Windows, you have to press <ALT> + <F4> to bring up a shutdown dialog with all the options.

    Wallpaper apps.
    They don't do anything special, and frequently skip crediting artists!

    Those who double-click on everything and are confounded by what follows

    Those who feel the need to minimize every application just so they can open a new application
