What are you're biggest pet peeves?
I only ask as i came across mine yesterday. People who when connecting sockets decide they only need about 2 inches or so of cable in the back....yeh cheers when someone else comes to take it off and has to reconnect with short cables and the terminals are always in different places to the last socket.
Even more annoying is when you find a non continuity and its the kitchen underneath a cabinet with short cables.

I hope people who do that have to poo cacti

USB sockets. Doubtful quality, unable to isolate, poor life, price low. The BS should have demanded a front isolator operated by a tool. It’s physics not magic.

All light fittings ever made for the domestic market, and a good proportion of commercial oriented ones too.

Being told to help yourself to tea coffee when the customer is out, only to find the cup they laid out for you is dirtier than the floor of the van.
(Always take my own travel cup. It holds 2 servings from the coffee machine in the wholesalers)
 
Short cables , messy consumer units , carp diy lights with tiny terminations , chip board floors , slow paying builders ....

Stuck up customers, who used to think, just because they had white collar jobs, they were better than you, because you got your hands dirty at work.

Worse than any of these things surely is the use of 6mm earth sleeve on a 1mm CPC
Yes!!!
Even worse 6mm earth sleeve and two cpcs shoved in it
