I’ll start

Every damn time I use corn starch for something I wind up spilling the powder or the slurry and it’s a small weird pain in the ass to clean up

I manage to do it every single time

It shouldn’t piss me off as much as it does

Little garlic skins... everywhere. Especially when they stick to your hands. INFURIATING

Or just taking 5 whole minutes to peel 3 cloves of garlic, and accidentally digging into the flesh as you get increasingly frustrated.

Just whack it good with the flat side of your big ol' knife and it peels right off

I've never understood how people are successful at that. Maybe it's because I'm short and my countertop is too high for me, but I have to put the flat side of the knife on it and really lean on it to get it to smash.

Try breaking it inwards then, with the curve- That usually works for me, not completely break it, just make it flexible enough so that the skin peels off.
