Consumer advocacy group CHOICE recently released findings of a survey investigating ‘What annoys Australians?’
Over 1000 CHOICE members were asked to rank 32 experiences on an annoyance scale from 0 (not annoying at all) to 10 (tremendously annoying). The top sixteen are shown in the image above.
‘Hidden fees and costs’ rated number one on the ‘Gripe-o-meter’, with ‘No refund/replacement for faulty products’ in second place and ‘Being on hold’, in third.
‘Cigarette butts littering public areas’ came in at number 12, above unreliable internet, noisy neighbours, long queues and traffic jams.
Other gripes commented on included slow drivers, road hogging and throwing cigarette butts out of car windows.
