    Haha, quite right. Although, are you sure about the hyphen? And personally I would make the "n" upper case.

    Oh yes, another personal hell of mine: people with poor self-awareness.

    First of all, each of my personal hells would have hot, humid weather. The sort that makes it impossible to get comfortable. With that established, here are a few of them:

    Eternity queuing for a rollercoaster next to a bunch of hyperactive kids and the inevitable swarm of wasps ... and it's not even a good rollercoaster.

    Eternity working at a call centre while desperate for a cigarette but also aware that everything you do is being timed to the nanosecond.

    Eternity trying to walk the dog on a narrow country path behind a group of pensioners. You know they can't help walking slowly but why couldn't they have picked a route where people can get past them?

    Eternity waiting for a parcel delivery. The second you take your eye off the window to do something else, they arrive and put a card through your door. You'll have to wait until the next working day and then the cycle repeats.

    My own personal Hell, and which has been used for torture of course, has been sleep deprivation, and which occurred when I was in hospital with broken ankles. One particular person, having perhaps dementia of some kind, would insistently call out during the night such that I could hardly get a decent night's sleep for the three weeks I was there. His bed was opposite mine in the ward. I know I can't blame the poor chap but it was essentially Hell. :glomp:

    What about: you're trapped in a coffee shop and all the coffee is decaff?

    How about being trapped forever believing in a God you don't like very much?

    I prefer coffee without the psychoactive drug. The awful headache I got when I refrained from it was confirmation of my decision to give it up.

    Do you drink tea? It contains more caffeine per gram than coffee.

    No.
    I sometimes have a tisane (no caffeine).

    I do not even feel the effects of caffeine and it has been years since I have.
