- waking up to an alarm clock - hangovers - waiting in line - having to pee in the middle of the night - any Steven Seagal movie - losing with AA vs AK, AQ and AJ - losing a sports betting in the last minute - mosquitoes - feeling like I have to sneeze and then don't - people who refuse to accept when they've lost an argument - players who min raise every hands
I'll think of more later...

Some good ones on your list and 2 I completely agree with are Alarm clocks and Mosquito's (obv not in UK). As for Waiting in line, I don't like it but more tilting is the cretins who try to jump queues. Brings out the passive aggressive in me, I stand there thinking "I want to punch you in the face, I want to punch you in the face, I want to punch you in the face".
People who litter, especially when just a few feet from a bin (donkeys!)
People chewing with their mouth open (surely we evolved past that about 2000 years ago you fucking cavemen)
People who accelerate their (normally old, s**tty, big exhaust or just any BMW) car down a busy street only to then have to break hard because its not a racetrack (dumb arses)
Not having hot water, either as a whole when it breaks / run out of oil / get up stupid early having forgot to change the heating settings or when you fancy a nice long relaxing bath and aim to have it super hot only for the tap to start running cold (Maybe I'm the donkey on this one)
Watching players for my team (personal and supported) play like they could not give a s**t. We all have off days but at the very least you should work bloody hard
Similar to you, the numpties who, with a few limpers in limit raise from the SB/BB.
As said, any connection issues. Most recent bad one was being chip leader in a $10 MTT with just 8 left, internet down for approx. 45mins, returned to see I busted in 7th. Cheers
Starting a session badly. Kind of sets a tone. Example, yesterday I did 2 cash sessions, I was dealt AA first hand in both sessions (honestly! Amazing huh). I played them both hard and fast and lost both times in HU pots for a full buy-in
Getting distracted by people who clearly know you're playing yet proceed to either ask dumb poker questions that they won't remember the answer to or simply talking s**t about life, normally stuff that either doesn't matter or can wait till after the game.

im notice something,when i pass hand with junks like 107o,J3o,something like that,on board came than full house or sometimes even poker,next hand with monsters you defintly lose...100% sure,i start even play few hands later folding AK,AJs or hands like that knowing i lose,its happend to me many times
Of course these junk hands will sometimes flop big, but the problem is, that you will for example flop quads (or full house) with 77 much more often than with 72. Just don´t go on tilt if you see, that if you would have called that 4x raise with 72o you could have flopped quads, its just a coincidence. (hopefully)
