7.0) The template is applied. Oh, wait... Now it's not applied. In fact, now I can't apply the template no matter what I try.
8.0) "I accepted those changes." "No, you didn't." "Yes, I did." "No..."
9.0) Word can't keep its outline numbering straight (changes numbering format, restarts the numbering where you don't want it to while refusing to restart where you really want to, etc.).
10.0) You want tabs with that numbering? Oh, too bad.
11.0) "The document is corrupt."

The worst is when you keep pressing 'Enter' and the damb thing just wont give you a break. Thats when you hold down the Enter key for a few seconds thinking this oughta send the message, but then the progress bar at the bottom gets going locking up the computer for a while and suddenly you've gone down 15 pages and somehow word decided that you also want to print those 15 blank pages and you cant stop now because its still holding the lock so you end up waiting indefinitely only to start with the whole procedure again. But hey that little dancing paper clip thingie is cute!

19.1) Why can't I add the dropdown border selection menu to my custom toolbar on the Mac version? It's on the regular formatting toolbar, but I can't find the option for customizing. (Only the individual selections: top, bottom, left, etc.)
19.2) The constantly shifting window on the Mac version. Why can't it stay where I put it? And why can't it remember its size?
Honestly, on the Mac, my first choice is usually TextEdit over Word. Imagine that. A "simple" text editor. Well, it's got spell check, is integrated with Mac's excellent Dictionary app, and it doesn't mess with me.

24) You copy something from somewhere else, not Word, where the text/font is in Courier, and when you paste it into a new document, the font is changed to Times New Roman.
25) You accidently copy some bolded text from an outside source, and paste it into you document, but you don't want it bolded, so you select the text, or backspace to re-write it, and everytime you type in a new letter it is bolded, even if you clicked the "B" toolbar button to turn of bolding
26) You can't get rid of that last stupid "P" paragraph mark.
27) You can't fix the indentation of paragraphs that you had already written, and everytime you backspace or make attempts at fixing this, it mocks you and changes it in ways you just don't want.
