    1. A humorous look at the minor things in life that are, indeed, aggravating; Lee not only describes the items/events, but also gives a little background into why they are so annoying.

    2. Exceptionally outdated at this time, plus even had I read this when it wasn't outdated, I'm not sure I would have found it worthwhile then.
