When someone's pointing something out on your computer and they TOUCH YOUR SCREEN.
Being asked to "whip something up real quick"...
...Or being told "This shouldn't take too long."
Seeing the word "font" used interchangeably with "typeface."
Being asked to design something for free, or "for experience" or "exposure."

When someone hovers over your shoulder while you work.
Seeing so many businesses use Papyrus because it looks "rustic."
Being asked to make edits on a .PNG or .JPG.
When people compare Photoshop and Illustrator, as if one is somehow better than the other.
When you tell someone you're a designer and they're like, "Oh, really? You must just have fun all day!"
Or when you tell someone you're a designer and they're immediately like, "Oh, really? You should design a t-shirt for me!"
Especially when that person is someone you just met.
Bad kerning. WHY?!!!
Stretched or skewed type.
When someone tells you they want something to "pop."
