This is a question Driven to Madness

Captain Placid asks: What annoying things do significant others, workmates and other people in general do that drive you up the wall? Do you want to kill your other half over their obsessive fridge magnet collection? Driven to distraction over your manager's continued use of Comic Sans (The Font of Champions)? Tell us.

When stupid people have important jobs
I've worked in loads of different schools across loads of different counties and it still surprises me that most of the people who are teaching are as thick as dog turd.
I know that there are people out there who are really enthusiastic about their job and will strive to make the kids they work with learn as much as possible... it's just that I've worked with a depressingly large number of teachers who are worse at spelling that the kids in their class. I once worked with someone who wrote "wardrope" instead of "wardrobe" even though she had been reading a book to her class about wardrobes for an entire week. I also worked with a biology teacher who thought sharks were mammals.

I've recently been caring for a relative who is quite ill and needs a district nurse to visit regularly to change dressings and check up on her health. Not a single one of them have noticed when the wounds have become infected, despite me pointing out that the wound smells and is yellow. They would simply tell me that they couldn't see anything wrong and not to worry, so when they had finished and gone I would immediately ring the doctor, who would confirm that I was right. This relative is very old and very ill and would probably be dead by now if I'd listened to the nurses.

I really do understand that not all teachers and nurses are like this but considering how important those jobs are, there sure are a lot of morons doing them.
