** Debit and credit card fraud in general. Even if you ''do'' successfully clear up the fraudulent charges with your bank, what's to say it won't happen again? Good luck trusting any card reader in the future, especially if it's a magnetic stripe reader, as they are not only used -- especially in the US which is known to be slow in adapting more advanced card technology like EMV chips -- they are also known for relatively easy exploits that can screw over those who don't carefully check every reader for "skimmer" devices.

* Imagine that you're driving down a road, and someone turns onto the road in front of you. You honk, and suddenly they get behind you and start trying to run you off of the road! Road rage is very common, and it's tough to predict.

* Did your Internet disconnect in the middle of something that relies on an uninterrupted Internet connection, such as video conferencing or games that require net access? You're going to be constantly thinking about it when you get back online. Worse if, for example, what you're doing or playing has a punishment for disconnecting (such as ranked modes in online multiplayer games).
