What really hurts is seeing diggers ripping up virgin roads. I shed a single tear as I watch.
The worst is when you have a really crappy road which finally gets a thorough resurfacing, causing significant disruption - delays, traffic lights, raised manhole covers, ramps, etc, . You enjoy the perfect new road surface for a week and then BT/Transco/Water company/delete as appropriate come in a dig it up again leaving a patchwork of poor quality humps, ruts and ridges.Why oh why oh why oh why couldn't they do their work BEFORE the resurfacing. Aggghhhh!!!!
