This is a very broad question.

What sort of things annoy you, the average piper, in your every day professional life?

I'm sure there are things that get under all our skins, so what can we do to fix it?

Let's open up the can of worms and see can if we help each other out a bit.

Top of my list would have to be Process. I can understand that it looks different once it's on paper vs. being wadded up between their ears but FFS, 1 revamp a day per project is sufficient!

AutoDesk, I curse them daily. Why is it that with every release they have to hide some of the simplest things while complicating others to the nth degree!

AutoDesk, bringing you products that just work - sometimes.

Group Leaders that feel their project is my priority. Right now I am working on 5 different bid packages for our Process Dept. Yet I still have leads asking me for favors on their projects and then staring at me wide-eyed an hour later when I haven't dropped what I was doing to do their seemingly easy edit/addition. Well if it was so easy then why DON'T YOU hop to it?
Reality is a trigger word and we're quickly losing touch...

I start to boil when I have to deal with people in leadership positions, that make decisions about drawings (either design or drafting issues) and it’s obvious they DON’T know what they are doing, but too arrogant to admit to it, and force their decisions down my throat!

This is an email I'd received. Its pretty much on target I guess.
Project Manager is a Person who thinks nine women can deliver a baby in One month.
Instrument Engineer is a Person who thinks it will take 18 months to deliver a Baby.
Field Engineer is one who thinks single woman can deliver nine babies in one month.
Client is the one who doesn’t know why he wants a baby.
Marketing Manager is a person who thinks he can deliver a baby even if no man and woman are available.
Resource Optimization Team thinks they don’t need a man or woman; they’ll produce a child with zero resources.
Documentation Team thinks they don’t care whether the child is delivered, they’ll just document 9 months.
Quality Auditor is the person who is never happy with the PROCESS to produce a baby.
Checker is a person who always tells his wife that this is not the Right baby.
HR is a person who thinks that a donkey can deliver a human baby if given 9 months
While all along, a piper yearns for is : A woman

Mostly, we do not get what we need!
