Toronto annoying

What annoys Torontonians the most?

The question "what annoys Torontonians the most" could easily be seen as troll-bait. And, to some minor extent, I suppose that'd be an accurate description of this little exercise. But, on the other hand, I also think posing such a question could -- perhaps oddly -- be a lot of fun.

I know what annoys me about this city, and from reading the comments on this site I sometimes think that I have a pretty decent understanding of what bothers our readers. Still, at the end of the day, it's tough to get a good sense of those annoyances that sit at the top of the heap.

Back in January, the TTC probably would have taken the cake. As we enter the final stage of the mayoral race, however, I'd have to think that many Torontonians are fed up with listening to this bunch of uninspiring candidates. Then again, there's always the Leafs -- and the general apathy of our sports franchises.

I make no claim that the poll below is comprehensive, but it does represent a shortlist of a whole slew of things that receive the ire of Torontonians. If a number of annoyances have been missed, the curmudgeon in me would be only too happy to create a second list -- even if it ultimately includes "local blogs who create lists of things that annoy Torontonians."
