Smile Quilting Pet Peeve

I was wondering what is everyone's pet peeve for quilting. My #1 pet peeve is seeing the little tiny threads lying around I cannot stand that and pick one up whenever I see one. My #2 pet peeve, and I know none of you have this problem, is ripping out what I just sewed. Someday I will learn to pay more attention to my sewing!!!!!!

My pet peeve is when someone borrows my scissors and doesn't put them back where they found it.

I saved hard and went with out lots to buy a fancy embroidery machine
and some one who says Oh you can make this for me you have
that fancy machine and can do it much nicer than me.....of course never
offering to do anything for you of offering to pay . Really makes me angry .

I seem to be really good at un-sewing. Guess practice makes perfect!!

piecing a square or quilt top only to realize it was not sewn into the correct position, usually because I was not paying attention!

co workers who think I have nothing better to do then hem their pants!

Chained sewed 40 HSTs together; went to press them and they were ALL sewed on the wrong side. I had 40 larger triangles--rip, rip, rip!!!

Mine are:
Running out of bobbin thread without knowing it.
Sewing under pressure ( I don't work well under stress)
People coming to me and asking me to mend, alter, or make their clothing.

When everything looks right but it just won't go together right or won't lay flat when finished.
