When your other half utterly refuses to believe you about something.

Mrs had a mobile tyre fitter come and change some tyres on her car yesterday, tried to go out in it this morning and came straight back saying "It's making a weird noise now, it gets worse the faster you go".

So I go out, drive it up and down the street and check all the wheels and find one where the tyre fitter has applied new wheel balancing weights and double stacked them. They're scraping on the brake caliper every time the wheel rotates. This is clearly obvious by the fact the new weights now have red paint scraped all over the top of them.

I tell her what the problem is and shortly after her mother comes round, at which point I hear her telling her mother "I don't know what it is but it sounds horrible".

I TOLD YOU WHAT IT IS!
To be fair to the Mrs., I would say that she was unable to explain the problem to her mother in the 'Technical' terms as you explained it to her.

Unfortunately not, when her mother left I said "why not just say it was something scraping against the caliper?" and she replied "how do you know? How do you know that's what the problem is?". It's almost as if she wants it to be worse than what it actually is, it can't just be something scraping against a caliper, the wheels have got to be falling off.

All this talk of dealership stickers reminds me that I don't really like them either, but I am annoyed at myself for again forgetting to remove the one from the rear windscreen of my car, which I bought just over 4 years ago

Stickers that don't peel off easily, but have to be soaked, scratched and piggled bit by bit then the glue removed by solvent.
Especially when applied to glass or chrome mad

When I was in the trade, I was incapable of fitting number plates, affixing dealer stickers and tax disc holders in anything other than a 100% straight, neat, tidy and even manner. I would take such pains that my colleagues would often take the rip out of me and even sabotage my efforts.

There is someone in the staff canteen who slurps his tea. After 30 minutes of this I could throttle him.

Having to ask people who owe you money to pay you.
Having to ask for anything back. Lent a memory stick to someone a couple of months ago, reminded them a few times but still not returned. I am not worried about the costs as its peanuts but its just the principal.
People not able to put things back where they got them from in the first place. Any tool I leave around gets moved. They live in one place. But whne I come to get one, it isn't there. I started buying multiple versions of things so the family could take them and distribute them randomly but I would still know where at least one was. For example I bought five set of nail clippers: one in my wash kit, one in the vanity unit, one on my wife's dressing table, one in my wife's wash kit and one hidden in a drawer. It lasted about five years but we're down to two. Where are the other three? Why not put it back where you found it? It's not fecking difficult.

Also, I always have spare kit when I go shooting. Inevitably one of the other guns will have forgotten something. I'm delighted to lend something spare to them, even if it reduces my choices. But they are sh!t at giving it back.

When I leave Bill paperwork on the side of the kitchen top to remind myself to sort it the following day and then the OH goes and moves it all into some place where I forget I was supposed to deal with it rage
