Things that no longer aggravate me:

  • Lousy weather
  • The Cubs’ losing ways
  • Heavy traffic
  • People who think they’re the coolest, man
  • Travel delays

Things that still aggravate me:

  • Politics and politicians
  • People who just know how others should live
  • Technology mishaps
  • People who do not pick up after their dogs
  • Alarm clocks
  • Deadlines

And, of course, there are plenty of things that I find disturbing, deeply saddening or incomprehensible — murder-suicide, child abuse, racism, homophobia, etc. — but that don’t aggravate me, per se, in the sense that I don’t get worked up about them.
