As each year winds to an end, I find myself surveying the past twelve months and thinking about who annoyed me. I have previously published lists of my findings for 2012, 2013, and 2014. Last year I took a hiatus, apparently because something more timely caught my attention and annoyed me instead.
When choosing my finalists for 2016, fame was not a consideration. I’m sure you’ve heard of some people on this list, while I suspect that most of them are new to you. These are merely the human annoyances that I, poring over my extensive notes from the past year, find myself most personally aggravated by as I peck out this article on a dark and wintry eve.
